Within a period of three weeks, this 3 month old “designer dog” (a Pomapoo) was brought to a vet with a broken front leg and shortly thereafter, she was brought to the Society with a break to the rear leg. The owner said she could not afford surgery and left her with us. Chloe is Pomeranian and Poodle and her owner paid over $900.00 for the dog. Since the owner was going through a divorce, the reasons for the “accidents” might be explained in appalling possibilities. The veterinarian would not risk giving an opinion on the likelihood of these “accidents”. The Society brought Chloe to Garden State Veterinary Specialists in Tinton Falls where they have ascertained that it requires their surgical expertise. Thanks to the Society’s Res-Q Fund, we are able to help Chloe and the thousands of sick and injured animals that come through our doors. File TF-52846-F (Tinton Falls).
Please contribute to our Res-Q Fund to help Chloe and so many others, If interested in adopting her, please contact us.
Assembly Bill 2668 (Chiappone, Lampitt) would require veterinarians to report suspected animal cruelty to law enforcement officers and animal cruelty investigators.
