AHS Helps Rescue Group with Dogs in Urgent Need

When the Hunterdon County Animal Rescue Center in Glen Gardner, NJ got word that they needed to find placement for the dogs at their facility or their construction would be halted, we had to step up and help. Their situation became desperate when the town gave them a deadline to remove the dogs or lose their permit to go forward with constructing their new facility, and with only a day left, the dogs were brought to Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park.

Staff members from Hunterdon Animal Rescue, Ashley and Colton, made the two hour trip to deliver their last four dogs that had not yet been adopted and we welcomed the beautiful pups with open arms. We couldn't have asked for four nicer dogs! Brandy and Felicity, a mother/daughter plott hound duo, and Hash Brown and Rascal, two great dane/lab mix sisters, were a little cautious when they arrived, but their friends reassured them that everything would be okay and our AHS staff eased their worries within minutes of meeting them. Shortly after they arrived, all four girls were in our medical department, getting check-ups, vaccines, microchips, and being spayed, and now they're all settled in.

Brandy and Felicity are just the nicest little girls who just can't get enough love and attention. They originally came from West Virginia and they have plenty of southern charm and sugary sweetness about them. Mom, Brandy, is about 6 years old and is calm and mellow while daughter Felicity, 5 years old, is a little more energetic and playful. Their opposite types of personalities tend to clash a little so the two do not need to be adopted together, but they do get along just fine with other dogs.

Hash Brown and Rascal are only 10 months old and are extremely close and bonded sisters. Hash Brown looks out for sister Rascal and the two are just inseparable. If one sister is getting attention, the other has to nuzzle her nose right in to get some love too. They cling to each other for comfort, play together, and curl up together every night at bedtime. The bonded beauties will need a great home where they can stay together forever.

We are happy to be able to help in cases such as this and are only able to do so thanks to the help of our kind and generous supporters. Please make a donation to our Res-Q Fund to help us in providing for more animals in need, or please text HumaneHelp to 41444 to donate.
