Near Frozen, Emaciated Young Dog Rescued



With the help of two samaritans, this emaciated dog was rescued from freezing to death. The fellas were driving through Newark's Weequahic Park when they saw the skeletal figure trying to survive in the sub-freezing temperatures with snow drifts blocking most areas of the park. Since the Society's Newark shelter is only a few blocks away, they drove to the facility to ask for assistance in catching the frightened dog. Society staffers met with them at the scene. One of the concerned samaritans had his dog in the car and when the frightened stray recognized another dog, she ran to the car and jumped in.

It was obvious that she was abandoned in the middle of the 311 acre park which made it an impossible task to escape. Due to freezing weather, virtually no visitors passing through the park, huge snow mounds, the largest lake in the Essex County park system, an 18 hole golf course, left this dog with a desolate area in which to try and survive. She had little muscle mass and no weight ... it would have been a very short time before she would have frozen to death.

She is now in the Society's Medical Dept. for care, warmth, food and all of the necessities she hasn't had in a very long time. The young black Pit Bull Terrier loves people and when approached, all she wants to do is lean against your leg. She needs and wants human contact and we hope that you will consider her your sweetheart this Valentine's Day. File N-98457-F (Newark).

Just call our Newark shelter at 973-824-7080, contact us via e-mail, or visit her at 124 Evergreen Ave. in Newark, convenient to the Parkway, Route 22, Route 1 & 9, the N J Turnpike. The Society is open 7 days for your convenience.
