Her job was feeding her litter of pups; the job was done and now her owner no longer needed her. At about 6 years of age, the Boxer was not at optimum health to continue to breed. And so her owner tied her to a pole and then walked away. "Buttercup" leaving her alone, emaciated and still lactating. Fortunately, she had chewed through the string and went up on a porch to find shelter and a bit of kindness and concern from someone. The homeowner called AHS to rescue this mature needy lady. She is now at the AHS Tinton Falls facility looking for her forever home.
The AHS is always in need of donations to help keep our doors open for the never-ending cavalcade of canines and cats that wait for kindness and adoption.
Buttercup is still with us and moved to our Tinton Falls shelter. For more information, call 732-922-0100 or e-mail us
