There is no excuse for animal abuse. Whatever the reason was to "get rid" of an unwanted pet, the Associated Humane Societies has been a lighthouse for unwanted animals for over 100 years. They could have brought him to our Evergreen Ave. shelter in Newark.
Instead they treated him like garbage -- and threw him into a dumpster on Manchester Ave. and Grafton Ave. in Newark.
He was matted, unkempt, and dirty -- but it was a long-standing condition. Without the benefit of proper shelter, food and water, he wouldn't have lasted very long in the sub-freezing temperatures.
Oliver is now at the Society where he was given his very own Spa Day and he basked in the attention and care given to him by Society staffers. And then another visitor came with a camera!!!! Well, that was all Oliver needed to be assured that he felt ultimately loved and adored!
His loving personality makes us realize how cruel and heartless someone was to be callous enough to betray this dog's loving nature.
It is through your donations that we are able to help the needy animals that come through our doors. Please donate to our Res-Q Fund and help us help them.
