On January 6, 2013 a neglected pit bull, under one year of age, was found behind Stony Hill apartments in Eatontown, New Jersey, late at night. The Monmouth County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MCSPCA) is asking for help in finding the owners responsible for the horrific shape the puppy was in.

The puppy “was covered from head to tail in mange,” a skin disease caused by mites that results in hair loss. Mange can also cause severe itching, skin irritation and infections, if left untreated.

Chief law enforcement officer Victor “Buddy” Amato stated the pit bull was dehydrated and immediately sent to Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in Tinton Falls. The puppy was stabilized but is going to need extensive care.

Donations are welcome to help care for the pit bull's medical needs. Donations can be sent to SPCA Law Enforcement Division, care of Chief Amato, 261 Wall St., Eatontown, NJ 07724.

If you have any information about this case, please contact Chief Amato at the Monmouth County SPCA at 732-312-7153.
