When an Asbury Park Police Officer picked up a small stray dog one evening, he brought her back to Police Headquarters until the Associated Humane Societies was contacted. The cute dog looked familiar to the Police Officers who recognized who the owner might be. When contacted, the owner advised he had given the dog to an Eatontown friend several months before.
In a continuing investigation, the Society's ACO found that for whatever reason, the Eatontown friend drove the dog back to the Asbury Park owner, left the dog in the backyard with a rock holding down the retractable leash. In a further investigation, it was discovered that the dog was kept in a crate in the backyard that was filled with feces and urine. In a medical check-up by the AHS veterinarian, Tia was underweight, had flat feet/poor nutrition, very long nails, was filthy from urine and feces, and a cherry eye with mild corneal irritation and more.
"Tia" deserves more than she received from being a cast-off from one owner to another.
Thanks to your contributions to the Res-Q Fund, Tia's medical expenses will be covered - she will be spayed and have the cherry eye repaired. Please make a donation to the Res-Q Fund today.
We consider many of the animals that come through our doors have stories that are lessons to be learned. Before giving a beloved precious pet as a gift, make sure it is a responsibility that will be accepted by the recipient. Tia is one of a hundred dogs waiting at the AHS Tinton Falls facility.
