With each animal that arrives, careful evaluation and concern is used to make our facility a warm and comfortable place, as impossible as that may seem.
Mable was abandoned in the car of an employee of a Monmouth County vet hospital. She was frightened, and has calmed after she was given a ThunderShirt which is wrapped around her with a gentle, constant pressure.
With homeless dogs that arrive at the shelter, a bevy of our Front Office girls take pictures, ooh and ahh about their adoptability, and do whatever we can to make their tails wag!
For some homeless orphans, the results are not so easy to obtain.
The AHS Tinton Falls Facebook page asked if anyone had any Thundershirts that are no longer in use.
Within a short time, we received a generous donation of shirts from Thunderworks. Also some received from the Daily Family as well as some from anonymous donors.
Maggie was found as a frightened, nervous stray. She is about 6-8 years old and in need of a calming effect on her stay with us. And now she waits for "a new leash on life".
ThunderShirt is a wonderful, effective solution for separation anxiety, a calming solution for loud noises, fireworks, driving in a car or any issues where your pet may develop anxiety, fear, etc. It is a fraction of the cost of medications, training, etc. For more information, log on to Thundershirt's website.
Pedro, above, is one real sad sack! He was at our facility for over a year and was finally adopted. He was with his family for over a year and then returned due to separation anxiety. The ThunderShirt is wrapped similar to swaddling an infant and we think he will do great in a new home with his new apparel!
As you can see, AHS takes into account each and every stray that arrives and hopes that we can make a difference in their lives. Your generous donations will help us to help them.
Our sincere thanks to ThunderShirt for their outstanding efforts in helping the animals that come through our doors.
