It’s sad how easily some people decide to get rid of the pets they once took care of.
Abandoning animals we once welcomed in our home is no different than abandoning a family member.
While walking the client’s dogs through Prospect park on Monday, Eric Maus stumbled upon a sight that broke his heart. There was an awesomely beautiful and big pit bull tied to a tree. But what caught Eric’s attention was the note that was attached along with the dog.
The note said: “Take me home. I’m a great dog. I’m 7 years old. Don’t let my size scare you. I’m sweet.”
Eric decided to get closer and that’s when he realized that the dog was indeed very sweet and gentle as it didn’t move an inch and let him near.
Eric didn’t hesitate to help the dog named Mamas.
He simply couldn’t leave her there alone for the park wasn’t a safe place for a dog to stay all by herself. Now the problem was that he couldn’t just take her with him because he already had two dogs.
He decided to spread the word on social media and to his surprise, many people contacted him and were willing to help. One man offered a transportation to the nearest shelter Sean Casey Animal Rescue. The staff was contacted beforehand and they were waiting for Mamas to arrive. The kennel for her was ready.
Getting the dog to the shelter took some time because of her size and a possible bladder infection that slowed her pace. Despite that, she couldn’t wait to enter the shelter.
Currently, Mamas is taken great care of and she spends her time playing in the park with the staff who love her a bunch. Eric is happy to know he was in the right place at the right time and was able to help this beauty.
Hopefully, after she recovers completely, she will be able to find her new home.
