When Hurricane Sandy was scheduled to hit land, any Keansburg residents evacuated the area — leaving behind cats and dogs, either homeless or staying in housing that was too dangerous to enter. The Associated Humane Societies was contacted at about midnight to pick up a dog and 2 cats that were left behind in the evacuation. A woman recognized the dog after seeing him on our Friends of the Associated Humane Society-Tinton Falls, NJ Facebook page. She had found the dog who was scared but once she gave him some food he relaxed to show a better personality.
The dog was in miserable shape, obviously neglected with unkempt hair, a bad ear infection, overgrow nails and a severely matted coat. The cockerpoo type was wearing a 2011 rabies tag from a Hoboken veterinary clinic and a home address in Union — and the AHS was notified by a telephone contact that the person listed on the license does not have any pets.
Much-needed veterinary care was given to the neutered 5 year old Cockerpoo thanks to donations to the Society’s Res-Q Fund. If you would like to help us to continue with our care for orphaned dogs and cats that arrive sick and abused, pleasedonate to our Res-Q Fund through which we give them much-needed but costly medical care.
Chase was adopted out briefly but would not do well in a home with young children or other dogs. For more information on Chase, call the Society at 732-922-0100 or e-mail us and refer to File 72672.
