When an off-duty Newark Firefighter saw an emaciated dog at a Newark residence, he contacted AHS to see what could be done to help this needy, pathetic lass. The AHS Animal Control Officer went to the scene where there were two dogs and spoke with the owner. The residence was located in the midst of drug houses, halfway houses and an unsafe area for outside dogs.
The owner had fallen on hard times and no longer wanted Delilah. He wanted to keep the other dog which appeared to be in fine health. Delilah is presently in our Medical Dept.getting special attention and feedings to improve her health and well being.
The off-duty Newark Firefighter came in to visit Delilah but he has a young child and was not ready to take on any additional responsibilities. The AHS Res-Q Fund is set up for veterinary care and Delilah is one of the many recipients. Please make a donation and help us care for Delilah and so many more animals in need. For more information on a very sweet, older lass, call AHS at 973-824-7080 and refer to File 14835-F or e-mail us.
The AHS is open 7 days a week for your convenience. The shelter is located off Rt. 1 & 9 near the NJ Turnpike and 3 blocks from the Elizabeth line. Please stop in to see Delilah or many of the other animals awaiting adoption.
