The AHS Tinton Falls shelter received a telephone call from an Aberdeen resident who needed to get rid of her dog due to ill health. Within a very brief period of time, an Aberdeen Township Police Officer contacted our Tinton Falls facility to advise that the dog's owner was already en route to a local hospital and needed our services. The officer advised that the dog was in terrible condition and needed help.
When our ACO picked up the dog, the home was in an uninhabitable & unhealthy condition & the dog was a product of that environment. The senior sweetie was overgrown with mats, fleas, filthy and pathetically overgrown knotted "snowshoe" size mats on the paws. The matted was so thick, our staff could not determine the sex of the dog.
Thanks to the efforts of Dr. Emily Marion and our veterinary staff; it was an exhausting effort to improve the health of "Beamer". He was wearing a harness that was so overgrown with tightly matted hair, it was necessary to anesthetize him and cut off the harness. Beamer had painful dental disease and it was necessary to remove 9 teeth. Thanks to donations to our Res-Q Fund, your contributions are always needed and put to good use for medical care for orphans that come through our open-door policy.
We have not been contacted by Beamer's owner and our main effort is to find a loving home where this senior fella can enjoy the peace & tranquility of a home where he will not be neglected or abused.
For more information on Beamer, call 732-922-0100 or e-mail us and refer to File 15789.
