South Jersey Bar Collecting Donations for Dogs Seized from Hoarder
Earlier this week, we learned of the gruesome discovery of 44 dead dogs found at the home of an animal hoarder in Shamong. Now, one local bar is striving to help the surviving dogs that were seized.
New Jersey State Police arrested 65-year-old Donna Roberts on November 13th during an inspection of her residence by the Burlington County Health Department that uncovered severe animal cruelty. The remains of the deceased dogs were found stores in plastic bags in the freezer.
Now, Pic-A-Lilli Inn in Shamong is doing what they can to support the over 100 dogs that were still alive and taken from Roberts' home. They are collecting blankets, towels, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, pet food, and monetary donations to benefit the shelters in case of those dogs. The shelters are Burlington County Animal Shelter, St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Association, Burlington County Animal Alliance, and Monmouth County Animal Shelter.
As some of you may have heard, there were 161 dogs that were rescued this week in Shamong Twp. These dogs have been put in the care of Burlington county animal shelter, St Hubert’s Animal Welfare, Animal Welfare Association, Burlington County Animal Alliance & Monmouth county animal shelter. We would like to help give back by collecting donations to help these shelters and dogs find their furever homes. The shelter is in need of blankets, towels, laundry detergent, Dryer sheets and food but anything is greatly appreciated. There will be a drop off box at the Pic A Lilli Inn. If you could find it in your heart to donate or to adopt one of these dogs please do. After their 8 day hold, all of the dogs will be listed on the website, Petango.com
There has been a donation box set up at Pic-A-Lilli Inn, located on Route 206 in Shamong.
Of course, these stranded and abused pups are also in need of their fur-ever homes. Please contact the shelters if you'd like to foster or adopt.
Thank you, thank you to our friends at Pic-A-Lilli for stepping in to help these four-legged friends.
