Popeye -Rescued from Woman Severely Beating Him

After a long work week and it was Sunday night, AHS Animal Control Officer Tom Circle had made a turn at the corner to go home.

Two passersby flagged the AHS ambulance to stop for assistance. They advise that a woman "was beating the hell" out of a Chihuahua.The woman was nasty and trying to sell the dog for $200-$300. Her only identification was a green card with no address. Due to her unruly behavior, the ACO called the Newark Police for assistance. After speaking to both parties, the Police advised that AHS could take possession of the dog. Just the night before, someone had allegedly given the dog to a worker at a near-by car wash.

Obviously this poor dog was handed over from one miserable situation to another. The young male dog had no microchip -- so any background history is unknown & untraceable. Was he found as a stray? Was he given away "free to a good home"? Whatever went the course of his life, it was not a good one.

We call him Popeye ...and the sad fact is that many dogs are handed over from one inadequate situation to another without any oversight. He's adorable, friendly and in need of a new road to happiness.

If you would like to help Popeye and the thousands of unwanted and needy animals that come through our doors, please feel free to donate for their care.

For more information, call AHS at 973-824-7080 or e-mail us and refer to File 21663.
