Homeless victim of divorce

A young dog, surrendered to a busy animal control agency in New York City, is terrified. Her name is Nena and according to Must Love Dogs – Saving NYC Dogs, she was “overwhelmed” when her human parent left her at the Manhattan Animal Care Center.

Nena lost her home because of a divorce – Must Love Dogs writes of the young dog’s overwhelming fear:

They knew that she was incredibly shy with new people till she warmed up, and now she is surrounded by nothing but strangers. Our hearts hurt when these shy, sweet puppies who did nothing wrong suffer the injustice of being left behind and abandoned when they are at their most vulnerable. Poor Nena was tail tucked at her medical, shivering in fear, and she even peed on herself.

Nena’s overwhelming fear makes her unsuitable for general adoption – she has been deemed “rescue only” because of her concerning behavior, and she must be released to a New Hope partner of the shelter facility.

Nena is running out of time – she is danger of losing her life through no fault of her own. Please take a moment to network her information and help her find a reputable rescue group to help her through her fear.

  1. Of course, the ENTIRE FAMIlY is traumatized in a divorce! I don’t understand how BOTH owners can simply “abandon” a VITAL family member! This is like ABANDONING YOUR CHILD!

    In any event, Nena deserves a loving “devoted” family. PLEASE PLEASE give her that chance! When LOVE replaces TRAUMA, she will respond!

    Please update if donations will help.
