- New Jersey, USA -
The South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter and New Jersey State Police are investigating a despicable act of animal cruelty and are reaching out to the public for assistance.
On Wednesday, November 30, 2023, a Good Samaritan, whom WPVI identified as Suzanne Stretch, was by Gershal Road and Eppinger Avenue feeding her colony cats when she heard some crying.
That crying led Suzanne to a basket with three helpless puppies trapped inside. Sadly, one of them was dead. As the South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter said in their Facebook post, “We can't imagine how someone could intentionally leave them to die.”
The two surviving puppies, now named Wanda and Cosmo, were “emaciated, dehydrated, and cold”, said the shelter. Wanda and Cosmo “have shown us already how resilient and special they are. We are so thankful to be able to provide them the medical and emotional care to heal until they are ready to be adopted”, added the shelter.
In an interview with WPVI, Lauren Campbell, the operations manager for the South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter, said that Wanda and Cosmo are approximately ten weeks old and it’s unknown how long they were in the woods for.
The South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter is in need of wet and dry puppy food as well as monetary donations. If you wish and can afford to help, please click here. Thank you!
I wonder where the babies’ mom is and whether she is safe. If these ignorant, evil, heartless, and soulless individuals do not spay her, what’s going to happen? More abandoned and dead innocent puppies?
We must find those monsters. If you have any information, please come forward and speak up for the Voiceless Victims. You can contact the NJ State Police Bridgeton Barracks at (856) - 451 - 0100. Thank you!
I took the liberty of naming the deceased furbaby Amore (Italian for “Love”) for the tribute image. Should his/her given name be made public, I will rectify it accordingly.
