A famous quote from Mahatma Gandhi certainly applies here:

“The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members.”

In disturbing acts of abuse and animal cruelty, a litter of new born puppies were left to die, among trash in Farmingdale, Monmouth County, New Jersey, near the Collingwood Auction.

This disturbing information was reported on Facebook by the Monmouth County SPCA animal shelter, located in Eatontown, New Jersey.

The puppies were in fragile condition, dehydrated and were promptly transported to a shelter, whereby they were examined and fed.

"After a medical assessment, it was determined that the puppies were approximately 24-hours old, some still with their umbilical cord attached," the SPCA reported on their Facebook page.

The Monmouth County SPCA was confronted with two separate incidents of animal cruelty this week.

“Some (of the puppies) still with their umbilical cord attached. The puppies were presented dehydrated and lethargic so were provided with heat and tube feedings every few hours. Sadly, one puppy has passed away but as of now, the rest are stable,” said the Monmouth County SPCA.

On the same day, this past Thursday, March 3, 2022, the Monmouth County SPCA received another phone call from the Asbury Park Police about an abused 10-week-old puppy.

The puppy presented with internal injuries,

including multiple skull, which resulted in head and face swelling, as well as cuts on his face, neck and ears.

The Monmouth County SPCA has named the puppy Laddy.
