On Friday, the Associated Humane Popcorn Park Shelter announced that they had taken in a severely neglected dog at their Tinton Falls, N.J. facility.
The dog, who had been tied up in a black, trash bag, had been discarded like garbage. A motorist found the bag on the side of Belmar Blvd. in Wall Township.
Somehow, the motorist noticed that the trash bag was moving, and thankfully, the person stopped to investigate further.
Inside of the bag was an elderly dog who was caked in urine and feces, and covered with such matted fur that he could not move.
The dog's condition revealed that life for this canine had been torturous for a long, long time.
Staff at the shelter shaved the dog's matted fur away and found open wounds and burns from the urine. Due to the severity of the dog's condition, he was sent to an emergency veterinarian for further care.
The veterinarian has determined that the dog is suffering from long untreated ear infections, skin infections, and more.
In essence, the dog, who is now known as "Morgan," has been sorely neglected and he has suffered immensely.
The shelter's ResQ Fund is being utilized to help pay for Morgan's veterinary care. The facility is hopeful that the worst part of Morgan's life has passed and that he will soon be on his road to recovery.
The shelter is offering a $500 reward to anyone with information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for Morgan's severe neglect.
