Sammy Left in Garbage Bag to Die

UPDATE NOV. 18, 2013 - Sammy's abusers are given the maximum by the judge hearing their case.

Read the full article here.

A motorist advised the Associated Humane Societies that he saw a garbage bag on the side of Belmar Blvd. in Wall Township. Although the garbage was moving, it was tied shut. When he opened it, he found a dog that had been kept under horrific neglectful and abusive conditions.

He brought it to the AHS Tinton Falls facility where staff immediately started to shave down the coat of this pathetic dog's coat which had imprisoned him for an interminable length of time. As the coat was being shorn, it revealed sores, open wounds, urine scalding and more. We then sent the aging male dog to the emergency vet hospital for care.

The vet hospital advises that the dog has severe ear infections, skin infections and more. We call this aging gent "Sammy" and we can only hope that we will be able to see him through what must be his darkest hours and all that he had experienced in the past.

Your donations to the Res-Q Fund is what we use to help such needy orphans. Please make a donation to our Res-Q Fund and help us help Sammy.

For more information on Sammy, e-mail us or call the AHS at 732-922-0100. The Society is located at 2960 Shafto Road, Tinton Falls 07753. The Society is open 7 days a week for adoptions from noon until 4 p.m.
