How tragic is it when a prospective adopter may not be a suitable candidate for being entrusted with taking on the responsibilities, care and the life of a loving pet. Financial consideration may be high on that list. All too often we see the results of animals that were abandoned because of those reasons.
Meet Eileen - she was found abandoned behind a Wawa store on Shafto Road in Tinton Falls. She had been involved in some type of accident or mishap that was not properly addressed. The leg was wrapped in bandage material -- probably by the owner. But because of a lack of care and no medication, the injury worsened. When Eileen arrived, the bone was exposed and a portion of the foot had been chewed off. As a result of this negligence, it was necessary to amputate the rear leg. In addition to the lack of care to the injury, Emily needed a dental cleaning which included 9 extractions. How she suffered …
Thanks to donations made to the AHS Res-Q Fund, our doors are open to the unwanted … and the most neediest. Among the breeds left uncared for that arrive at our doors are Yorkies -- always in need of grooming and dental care due to the expense of keeping them current in their health and cleanliness.
