Dogs Left Outside AHS in 3˚ Weather in Early Morning

It was only 3 degrees at 6:30 a.m. when an individual abandoned two dogs at the AHS Newark facility. They tied one dog to a post and one dog was in a metal cage. When staffers arrived at 7:30 a.m., they brought the dog inside and discovered a dead Shih Tzu mix in the cage. The Shih Tzu mix had not been well treated or groomed and it is not known if it died while waiting to be found or had died before arriving at the shelter.

The video cameras placed in various areas outside of the building were not of any use since the individual parked far enough away from the shelter so that the license plate on the vehicle could not be detected.

The AHS is offering a $1,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest & conviction of the person involved in the cruel abandonment.

The AHS has continued to have an open door policy and there is no need to leave an animal out under such dangerous conditions.

We call the survivor of the abandonment "Elsa" and she is presently at the AHS in Newark. For more information, call 973-824-7080 or e-mail us and refer to File 132430.

Please help our Res-Q Fund for the many cases that arrive at our inner-city shelter.

The deep freeze that has caused such inhumane conditions and suffering for animals has given us the impetus to start a groundswell of support in each municipality to put together an ordinance on anti-tethering, temperature restrictions and specific wording for proper shelter. Concerned citizens, animal lovers, pet owners should start within their own town by requesting the passage of such an ordinance. The legalese work is already done! For a copy of a suggested ordinance, just check here.

The cold weather has slowed the number of visitors to our Animal Care Centers. There are lots of beautiful dogs to see -- stop in as we are open 7 days a week. Or log on to Petfinder to see many choices.
