Jager - Horribly Matted, Eyes Glued Shut

This picture may look like the last dozen feature stories that were done on our website -- but no, it is the passing parade of pooches that are kept behind closed doors -- neglected and suffering -- until they are brought to AHS or dumped in a local park or by the side of the road.

This pitiable little lad was brought in by a Newark resident who said it was a stray. Whatever the reason and whatever the history, we are thrilled that he was brought to our Newark shelter rather than be left on the streets in such a forsaken condition.

The terrified dog had a terribly matted coat stuck together with urine and feces and eyes that were stuck together in this horrendous world in which he suffered without escape. It took 5 hours to help this fella -- but we couldn't call it "grooming". He could not be brushed, cut, combed until they were able to snip away at the glued mess that covered him.

He is calm but frightened since he was taken away from whatever home he had and the loss of his "protective shell". We call him Jager. His fears at being at AHS are baseless and we are working to give him the patience and care he so desperately needs now. A donation will help Jager and the other miserable dogs who need a lift up from the misery that the have been subjected to until they came through our doors.

For more information, call AHS at 973-824-7080 or e-mail and refer to File 20291-M.
