He was nearing the end of his life when his physical and emotional spirit was spent. The emaciated dog had traveled as far as he could & then he collapsed. A Newark resident contacted the Police who alerted the AHS Newark Shelter. Since Newark Animal Control has a 72 hour waiting to answer calls, the AHS stands ready to rescue animals in need.
He was in such dire straits, we found it necessary to bring "Lionel" to the Animal Emergency & Referral Associates in Fairfield due to the severity of his condition. Thanks to the AHS Res-Q Fund, we are able to help Lionel & many others in need. (Click here for original story and pictures).
Lionel was brought to the AHS shelter in Tinton Falls where has been anxiously awaiting "a new leash on life".
He is one of the sweetest dogs at the shelter ... but he is so exuberant and anxious, that his energetic welcome may scare you!
Come and meet Lionel .... he needs the exercise, a walk and a little time to become acquainted. For more information, call AHS at 732-922-0100 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and ask about Lionel. AHS is open 7 days a week for your convenience.
