Starving puppy thrives at shelter

  • Emma was starving when she arrived at the West Milford Animal Shelter. She is now thriving and is in need of a forever home.

A very emaciated puppy arrived at the West Milford Animal Shelter not long ago. Her ribs were protruding and she had been eating whatever she could find to survive.

She was given the name Emma. It has taken some time but this sweet puppy is no longer emaciated Emma. She is now enchanting Emma!

She was monitored and feed small meals during the day and at night. She received other medical care and has recovered from her ordeal.

Emma is now a very happy and energetic puppy who is eager to please. She still has a lot to learn yet but is making progress. She is about nine months old and will probably not be a much larger than she is now.

After her rough beginning, she needs someone who will love and care for her so she can become the beloved pet she was meant to be.

The shelter will be hosting its annual Black Cat Friday and weekend adoption event on Nov. 24, 25 and 26th. Every black or black and white cat adopted during the event will go home with a gift bag filled with goodies for them to take to their new home.

Emma and another black dog available for adoption, Frost, will be "honorary" cats and will also go home with gift bags.

The shelter is located on Lycosky Drive (behind the recycling center).
