Hercules - Covered with Wounds, Cheered by A Simple Toy

Hercules - in Roman mythology he was famous for his strength. Nothing could be further from the truth with this massive gent who came to AHS looking pretty beat up and withdrawn. The 2- 3 year old pit bull was badly scarred with open wounds all over his body. The veterinary staff has been tending to his wounds and has made tremendous progress. He is ready to go on with life and free-ranging adventures as did the mythological Hercules.

Frequent daily walks are part of his regime but he was a little more than reticent to travel outside with a staffer. And then his kennel attendant, Eric Gonzalez, decided to give Hercules a toy. It was a bright idea that has somehow made life more cheerful for Hercules. With over 150 dogs -- each with a need for a little joy while they wait for the next chapter of their life, we are elated to find something to give them happiness. And for Hercules, it was a little gesture -- a toy that has seemed to give him joy while he waits to find a wonderful life with a new family.

Your donation will help us to help in the medical care of needy animals such as Hercules. For more information on Hercules, call AHS at 973-824-7080 and refer to File 17735 or e-mail us.
