Society staffers are always attuned to the plight of unwanted Christmas gifts that end up at our shelters each year. Marley was the first surrender from this Christmas.
The adorable Cairn/Yorkie mixture had been purchased at a pet outlet by a loving daughter for her 81 year old mother. Luckily, Mom had more intelligence...and more concern for a very young pup that needed more time and care than Mom could give it.
Each holiday brings with it an industry that sells pups, kittens, rabbits, ducks, chicks and more! If a pet is what is being considered as a present, make it a gift certificate.
According to Mom who received the gift: "What was she (daughter) thinking of"?
Marley … and lots of adorable animals are awaiting adoption at the Associated Humane Societies in Tinton Falls.For more information, call AHS at 732-922-0100 or e-mail us. The Society is open 7 days a week for your convenience.
If you would like to help in donating to our open door policy, your generosity will make a difference to sooo many animals.
