Rescued Herself, Wooby Now Heals Others



Wooby, along with her two litter mates, was an animal rescue from Asbury Park in the spring of 2003. She suffered an old break in her left foreleg, and our veterinarian thought the Husky mix would function much better if the leg were amputated. About a month later on April 13, the three-legged pup was adopted by Sue and Peter Herflicker of Toms Rivers, N J. a banner day for this dog.

Sue decided to put Wooby into a Therapy Dog Program and because of Wooby's intelligence and eagerness-to-please, she officially became a Therapy Dog in August 2004. Wooby had to complete a basic 8 week obedience course, then another 8 weeks to become certified. She passed all courses with flying colors. She additionally went through the temperament testing required and became a “Canine Good Citizen”.

When Wooby visited the Burnt Tavern Convalescent Center in Brick, everyone who met her there fell in love with her – residents and staff alike, (including Florence, pictured at left with Wooby.) Everyone was amazed by her animal rescue story and her stamina, and all look forward eagerly to future visits. Wooby has also been a regular visitor to Country Manor in Toms River to cheer up the residents there. According to Sue: “She has touched our lives in an awesome way. Thank you to all at the Popcorn Park for saving her life and bringing her into ours”.

Not every animal rescue at the Society goes on to actively bring joy into the hearts of others as a therapy dog; many are simply happy to bring love into their own family's life and to be loved. The Society's mission is to assure each pet the chance to find the love they deserve. Won'y you please support our animal rescue efforts and contribute to the Society today?
