A deaf and blind senior dog named “Bruna,” who had been dumped from a car in Teterboro by her Fort Lee, New Jersey owner, will be living out her life – no matter how long she has – in a loving hospice.
According to the Bergen County SPCA, the 15-year-old dog had been brought to the shelter by a Good Samaritan. A witness in another vehicle saw the dog dumped on Industrial Avenue and was able to capture the license plate number and a description of the vehicle.
Investigators from the Bergen County SPCA’s Law Enforcement Division tracked down Tania Connelly, 59, and charged her with “inflicting unnecessary cruelty upon a living animal” by abandoning the dog in a public place. Connelly has since surrendered Bruna which has made her immediately eligible to be adopted and placed in the care she will require for the rest of her life.
When found, Bruno was treated at Bergen County Animal Shelter; on Friday she was taken to Pet ResQ in Tenafly to live out the rest of her days.
“She wasn’t meant to leave this Earth yet,” Bergen County Animal Shelter Director Debbie Yankow said. Here is Bruna, happy and in her new home. Thank you, Robyn Urman @ Pet Resq Inc.”
It’s not hard to see how much better Bruna already feels. Many thanks to the people who give their hearts to rescue our best friends.
Live a long and happy life Bruna. You are adorable.
