Terriers Abandoned in City Park Before Hurricane

The two pups, Sandy and Irene

An irresponsible, cruel dunce abandoned a Schnauzer and three young terrier dogs at a Newark park. The four dogs were deliberately brought into an area of the park not likely to be discovered by the public. It is a dead end road with railroad tracks and a heavily trafficked highway surrounding the area.


The Associated Humane Societies was contacted by the Park Police concerning the terrified terriers that needed to be rescued. They stayed together as a little family and hid in some used tires as a refuge.

AHS has been on the scene every day, several times a day and were able to get the Schnauzer and two terrier pups.

The Schnauzer had a microchip. The owner was contacted and has made arrangements to obtain their dog.

Weather conditions have made it even more difficult with hurricane warnings make this a timely concern. Due to the timeliness of this rescue, we call the two terrier pups Sandy and Irene (right) -- named for the weather-related disasters.

The adult male terrier is still a difficult rescue as he is untrusting of anyone who approaches. All manner of rescue attempts have been tried.....and he was almost saved! Time is of the essence to rescue this pathetic dog who was betrayed by someone. We call him Joaquin.....

Joaquin - who we're still trying to rescue.

A great deal of manpower and effort have been expended and we hope for a happy solution before we receive a dangerous impact of a hurricane. On the eve of Hurricane Joaquin, we are still battling the elements to rescue this lonely dog. Please donate and help us to continue our efforts.

Sandy and Irene are at our Newark facility in need of loving homes. They are still somewhat frightened but realize that they are safe...and look forward to a lifetime commitment.

For more information, call AHS at 973-824-7080 and refer to Files 193383 and 193384 or e-mail us.
