Southern Dogs with Grim Future Find Haven at AHS

Even with all of the animal lovers who wanted to help this poor hound, it seemed Natasha was failed by everyone. Natasha, (at right), her mother Paula and her sister Nina are now safe at our Forked River facility.

Their saga was a long and sad one. They were taken by a rescue group from a North Carolina pound who did not take very good care of their dogs. The rescue then brought them back to its West Virginia facility along with several other dogs released from the NC facility.

The rescue group then sent out pleas to over a thousand organizations while these orphaned dogs waited over a month. In the meantime, Natasha was adopted out but returned after the family decided they didn’t want a dog after all. She was adopted out again but escaped and was found by animal control.

After her escape, the family didn’t want Natasha back.Natasha was returned to the West VA rescue group where the situation had worsened as the overcrowded rescue was now keeping dogs outside in the cold.

We offered to take Natasha, her mother Paula and her sister, Nina, (at right). When the group offered to drive them up to our Forked River shelter/Popcorn Park, we also accepted several other needy dogs that needed help – four were brought to Forked River, and seven to our Tinton Falls and Newark shelters.

Natasha is a very sweet dog and although confused from being in and out of so many homes and rescues, she has a calm temperament and would make a wonderful family pet for just about anyone.

All 15 dogs have been examined and are living comfortably at our three shelters while waiting to be a part of someone’s family.

Natasha’s story is a sad one, but all these dogs were living in crowded conditions where their chances at adoption were grim. It is our hope that by bringing them to New Jersey they will find safe, happy homes where they can enjoy their lives.

If interested in adopting Natasha, Nina or any of the other dogs we rescued, please contact us.
