Due to the economic troubles following the oil spill in the Gulf Coast, many families have found themselves unable to afford to care for their dogs anymore. But what is their lost could be our gain, because there are now 107 dogs in New Jersey waiting to find new homes. The dogs were brought to St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in Madison, NJ, and should be ready for adoptions after baths and chip implants by next week.
Norma Parker, the Vice President of Animal Welfare at St. Hubert's, said, "New Jersey is a coastal state, so we know how devastated something like this could be and how people make their living from the sea...We're happy to be able to reach out and say we'll take care of them and make sure they're in happy homes." The dogs were trucked up from Louisiana, and are all healthy. And they all look cute too!
