Someone abandoned a crated dog in the woods near a gun club in Barnegat, New Jersey. The Associated Humane Popcorn Park Shelter issued a release about the abandoned dog, detailing what is known:
On Monday, December 28th, our Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park facility received an Animal Control call for an abandoned dog in Barnegat, NJ. Our ACO, Maria Cymanski, was dispatched to the scene located in the area of 1450 West Bay Ave. where a young female Siberian Husky mix was left in a crate in a wooded area near a gun club.
According to the release, a man spotted the crate and discovered that a dog had broken out and was running loose with a leash attached. The man was able to secure the dog in the crate and called for assistance.
The release outlines what happened next:
The Barnegat Police Dept. and the Humane Law Enforcement Officer for Barnegat were alerted to the situation and Maria brought the dog back to our facility in Forked River. The dog was wearing a pink collar but did not have any tags nor was she microchipped. She was checked out in our medical department and given all the necessary vaccinations.
A reward is being offered for information on this cruelty case. The shelter writes:
We hope to find the person responsible for this cruel act and we are offering a $1000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual responsible. Please email the Barnegat HLEO at: [email protected] with any information.
The dog, dubbed Ginger, is described as friendly and happy. She will be made available for adoption after her stray hold expires.
The shelter writes:
She will be posted on our Facebook page: Associated Humane Popcorn Park Shelter, our website: www.ahscares.org, and all adoption websites. We are not taking applications for her in advance. If you’d like to donate toward the care of Ginger, and the many others like her that come to us in need, please donate to our ResQ Fund at www.ahscares.org.
