Georgie - Starving Boxer Rescued from Rural Road

It's so very heartbreaking to think of the lives that some animals lived before coming to us at Popcorn Park. Maybe they were abused, maybe they were neglected, maybe they got lost, maybe their family just didn't want them anymore. Most have experienced fear, loneliness, hunger, and heartache, and maybe it's best that they cannot tell us what they went through because really, they are safe with us now, and that is all that matters. We help to put their past behind them, and reassure them that there really are good people in this world that care about them.

Although we want him to put his past behind him, we do have to wonder just what happened to our newest friend Georgie, and what brought him to the sad state that he is in. Georgie came to us when our Animal Control Officer picked him up running on a rural road, all by himself. Georgie is completely emaciated and shows signs of being an "outside dog". He has sores that dogs get from laying on concrete and his nails are almost nonexistent. Patches of fur are missing and his hip bones are protruding from his thin body. Maybe Georgie just got lost, but it's more likely that Georgie was just no longer wanted.

He is safe with us now and is so, so happy to be getting lots of good meals, a soft and comfortable bed to rest on, and good medical care. He is most happy to be making so many new friends that treat him with love, respect and kindness.

Georgie is not available for adoption yet, but soon he will be looking for a great home to start over in with people that will love him, care about him, and never throw him away again. So many pets come through our doors in this condition, and we do everything in our power to help each and every one of them. It's not always easy, and sometimes it's costly, but it's always worth it. If you can help us to help the special needs cases that come to us, please make a donation to our Res-Q Fund And please stay tuned for more on our new friend. Georgie is just one of four Boxers currently at Popcorn Park. For more information, please call us at 609-693-1900 or e-mail us.
