Jade and Solo - Left to Starve on Deck



SEE BOTTOM PHOTO FOR UPDATE!

Even though the Associated Humane Societies has been the beacon for hope for animals in and around the Newark vicinity for over a hundred years, many people still do not know that we stand ready to help!

In mid-November, an e-mail alert was circulated about 2 pathetic dogs, tied together (physically and emotionally) on an outside deck without food, water and shelter. The house had been abandoned.

The dogs had no way to find comfort from the cold, the wind, the rain -- only each other. They were thin and slowly starving. Thankfully, one of them started to bark, scream and make enough noise for someone to see them.

Jade and Solo tied together and left to their fate on the unsheltered deck of an abandoned home.

The Society immediately dispatched an ambulance and took the grateful whiners back to the Newark Animal Shelter. They are slowly gaining weight and would love to be in a home. A temperament evaluation was done and listed is the following on Jade with her wrinkled Shar Pei brow:

"This little heartbreaker, could indeed be a miniature sized Shar Pei. Astonishingly, 12 month old Jade pulls energetically on lead, despite her emaciated condition, and while she devours dinner at high speed, our sweetheart will share her bounty with all. She was not interested in playing with toys, but she sat on command to take treats gently."

Found with Jade was Solo; her right eye was surgically removed. She is a brindle pit mixed with a hunting breed and is remarkably easy to walk on lead. She has no issues regarding sharing her food or fun. And does she like to have fun!!! Solo tested all the balls and squeaky toys and decided it was a rawhide kind of a day! She is social with other dogs and when her temperament tester sat next to her, she immediately snuggled into her lap.

Solo, above, and Jade - in much improved health after rescue and good care.

What better time of year than to give the gift of life and love to Jade and Solo? They will be going to our Forked River Shelter to make room for more homeless waifs coming through our doors at Newark.

If you do not have room in your home for these two dogs, we hope you will have room in your heart ... please donate to their care. Both have been given all necessary inoculations, de-worming, frontline and will be scheduled for spays. Will you share a part of your heart and help to defray the cost of these efforts?

Both of these ladies can be seen 7 days a week from noon until 5 p.m. at the Society's Forked River shelter, located off of Exit 74 of the Garden State Parkway. For more information on Jade and Solo, they have Tags # 97546 and 97547. Call 609-693-1900 or contact us.

UPDATE!! Solo was adopted! But Jade still waits and is looking better than ever. Jade is hoping Santa will give her a lifetime of happiness and acceptance in a new home.
