She is a young pup that a Newark resident who allowed this mixture to become so emaciated, she was slowly wasting away. It is alleged that the owner put the dog outside in 27 degree temperature and with the wind chill factor, it was 19 degrees.
A neighbor saw the dog and felt sorry for the life-threatening circumstances and brought her to the Society. We call her “Hope” and she is getting lots of all that she needs – food, water, special electrolytes, and lots of love the staff. Blankets were warmed up in the dryer and have been wrapped around her. Your donations to our Res-Q Fund help us to help Hope and others like her.
Sadly, there are those who spend hours on their Facebook pages demeaning the AHS. These so-called animal lovers and protectionists have gone out of their way to ensure that we are belittled and question the use of funds. We have continued day in/day out to make a difference in the life of every animal that comes through our doors. We are an inner city shelter and deal with heartache on an everyday basis.
We ask our loyal supporters to continue to have the confidence that we try every day in every way to give Hope and others like her a chance for a happy fulfilled life. Hope is now waiting for her forever home at our Forked River shelter.
Take a look at Hope just one day after treatment, good care and love from staff!
