Georgia Dogs Saved from Cruel Fate



LOLA, A NINE-MONTH-OLD yellow Labrador retriever mix, was imprisoned in the locked trunk of a parked car in Georgia with her three siblings, when a Good Samaritan found them, freed them and took them to her home where she raised all four for several months.

Lola is a lively 9-month old yellow Lab mix, who needs a large yard and another pet or human playmate.

Brady, another young adult mix, was abandoned with a chain around his neck at a Georgia flea market, where he eluded rescuers for some two weeks before being caught and taken to a safe shelter.

Brady is a strong, playful, but obedient dog. He is extremely intelligent.

Lola, Brady and four other dogs who were rescued from Georgia “quick kill” shelters, have a new chance at happy lives after being saved from imminent death and brought to Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park in hopes of finding their forever families. All six dogs have been examined, received necessary veterinary care and are available for adoption.

“Lola and Brady’s stories are quite moving, and it is no secret that Georgia strays can be euthanized in as little as three days after being caught. We are so glad we could bring them to a facility where they will be loved and cared for until someone adopts them into their own families,” said AHS/Popcorn Park General Manager John Bergmann. “Every animal deserves a chance at the best life possible. We are committed to doing just that.”

The Associated Humane Societies is part of a large network of animal advocacy organizations that will take in pets from throughout the country that are rescued from cruel conditions or imminent death. Several groups in the South regularly visit quick kill shelters, evaluate the dogs that are there and rescue those they feel are adoptable. At that point they reach out to shelters, like AHS, that might be able to help.

It is important to note that AHS does not euthanize animals already living at any of their centers to make room for new ones. That makes the need to find homes for these homeless animals even greater.

There are hundreds of dogs, puppies, cats, kittens and small animals available for adoption at the our animal shelters in Tinton Falls, Newark and Forked River. You can check them out before meeting them in person by logging on to Petfinder.

Taffy (top right), Marley (center left), Tulip (bottom right) and Moose (bottom left) were all saved from a Georgia quick kill shelter and are now available for adoption at AHS Forked River Animal Care Facility.

You can also make a donation, and be assured that you will be helping AHS/Popcorn Park in helping more animals in need.
