The AHS received a call early Saturday morning that a wet, emaciated shivering pup was barely able to make it in the driveway of a Neptune resident. The homeowner grabbed a towel and brought the pup into the house and called AHS. Our Animal Control Officer was immediately dispatched to the scene and brought him back to the Tinton Falls facility.
A day later, a second pup was found on the doorstep of a homeowner -- only a few doors down from where the skeletal pup had been discovered. Although not as emaciated as the first pup, it appeared to have skin problems and was just as needy.
Both pups are about 6 weeks old females and are kept together. They are receiving all necessary medical attention. They were loaded with intestinal parasites and one is being treated for a bacterial skin infection.
AHS contacted News12NJ and have offered a $1,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator(s) who heartlessly abandoned them on doorsteps.
We call these two sweet sisters "Freedom" and "Liberty". For more information, call AHS at 732-922-0100 or e-mail us and ask about these lovable littermates. The AHS is located at 2960 Shafto Road, near the Rt. 33-34 Circle.
