The Society received a call from a distressed Neptune, N J resident who needed assistance for starving pups in a neighbor’s backyard that she had been feeding through the fence. An animal control officer was immediately dispatched to the scene and two starving dogs – and tragically two that had starved to death. The ACO transported the 7 month old dogs to the Society’s Forked River Animal Care Center where Dr. Laney Baris checked out each dog and administered medical treatment.
The matter was referred to the Monmouth County SPCA for animal cruelty charges against the home owner. In comments to the media, the home owner said the dogs had been dropped off in her yard last March & she was not responsible for them.
Buddy Amato of the MC SPCA praised the Society & Dr. Baris for bringing the two dogs back from the brink of death.
The two dead dogs were a male and female. Sadly, it is believed that they languished a long time before they died. The two surviving dogs are females that were named Robin and Raven and are at the Associated Humane Societies in Tinton Falls. We are hoping that these two sweeties will remain together and can celebrate the New Year with a new family and a new life.
If you would like to give some happiness to two pups that survived enough hardship to last a lifetime, please contact us and inquire about Robin and Raven.
