Aurora Finds the Home of a Lifetime!



It's often been said that one man's trash is another man's treasure, and in this case, the saying is quite literally true! Aurora, horribly matted and with a crushed and bleeding leg, was wrapped up in a garbage bag, and left for dead in a secluded area of Newark.  But death wasn't to be her fate, and she was discovered by a resident's dog as they walked the neighborhood.

From being left for trash, Aurora has made an incredible journey, and she is now the treasure she deserves to be. Adopted by Daniel Mills and Keith Armstrong of Red Bank, NJ, she has found the love she so desperately needed. But before that happened, there was a moment while recuperating from her painful ordeal, that she again began to give up hope.

Despite her wonderful care, she sometimes looked out from her cage in the Medical Dept.with the saddest of faces. She was becoming depressed, and her liver values indicated that her health was deteriorating. But thanks to our veterinarian, Dr. Pazos, who took Aurora home for the week, her spirits perked up.  Aurora was bestowed with love and affection by Dr. Pazos and her mom and played with their family dogs -- just what the doctor ordered.  In just one week, she came back a new girl -- bright, cheery, healthy ... and had discovered her bark!

There has been such an outpouring of love and support for Aurora, and so many adoption applications, that staff had a tough time deciding who could provide the best home for her. But in reviewing Daniel Mills' application, it became clear that somewhere in heaven the match had already been made. He and Mr. Armstrong had previously owned a Shih-tzu and a Lhasa who had passed way at 17 and 18 years old respectively. Their veterinary reference was nothing short of glowing. The two came in on May 5, and fell in love. Aurora, who had clearly not known much more than neglect and cruelty, was immediately the center of loving attention. Now it seemed Aurora really knew ... she WAS a treasure!

In a follow-up call, Dan's told us Aurora has totally come out of her shell, and it seems like she's been with them forever. We anxiously await more news and photos to share with all those who have supported one little dog's recovery. Please read Aurora's amazing story with before and after photos.

Aurora's recovery was due to our utilizing monies from the Society's ResQ Fund. And in turn, your support of this life-saving fund has made Aurora's happy ending possible. Please consider a contribution today to help the many more animals in desperate straits who will need this fund. Thank you.
