Every rescue is a unique challenge for the Animal Control Officers; the ACOs must evaluate a situation quickly to make an immediate decision so as not to lose the opportunity.
We do not know if it was by accident or design, but this female pittie mix ended up in a stream running through areas of the Vailsburg section of Newark. She had been seen by various residents for at least a week. The local Animal Control went to the scene and could not get her. Although the young female could navigate various areas of the water, she was unable to successfully make the steep climb to the top of the hill.
Since it was a 25 foot drop to the stream, ACO Tom Circle knew he had to gain access to the dog and help accompany this lost soul who had climbed a portion of the way. Thanks to a ride-along trainee with our ACO, a rope was secured around Tom who was lowered down to "Rosebud" and then escorted her to the top of the hill.
