July 30, 2010 - PRLog -- LEDGEWOOD, N.J.–On Saturday, July 24,Noah’s Ark lived up to its name, becoming home for 13 dogs relocated from a shelter affected by flooding in Pikeville, Kentucky.  The dogs were placed at Noah’s Ark Animal Welfare Association, Inc. in Ledgewood after the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) provided emergency transportation and placement of animals at the Pike County Animal Shelter in Kentucky.

“All of the animals were happy and sweet after they arrived at Noah’s Ark,” said Brian Bradshaw, Operations Manager.  “We’re currently looking for homes for these dogs and hope their arrival will bring good company to several families in New Jersey.”

The dogs relocated from Kentucky to Noah’s Ark include: Sam Merlotte (male Spitz mix), Tara (female Sheppard mix), Bill Compton (male Corgi mix), Sookie (female Retriever mix), Miss (female English Setter), Breezy (female Beagle mix), Cheetos (male Corgi mix), Briane (female Labrador mix), Peaches and Schontelle (both female Hound mixes), Pierre (male Border Collie), and Reggie (male Beagle).  

In addition to helping with the Kentucky shelter, Noah’s Ark also worked with the ASPCA in an intervention in Elks County, PA.  A black and tan male Chihuahua named Lucky came to Noah’s Ark as a result of this intervention.  Lucky is currently on the mend from an upper respiratory infection but will be available to adopt in about two weeks.  

Along with Lucky, were Ray Ray, a gray five-year-old FIV positive cat, and Marbles, a two-year-old black and white FIV positive cat. Cats with FIV, or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, a virus causing a weakened immune system, can live full life-span, never showing symptoms of FIV.  The virus is not contagious to dogs or humans but can be transferred to other cats through a severe bite.  For more information about living with FIV positive cat, call us or consult with your veterinarian.  Both Ray Ray and Marbles are currently under medical treatment for severe URI and ear infection but will soon be up for adoption.  

If you are interested in adopting any of these animals, please contact Noah’s Ark at (973) 347-0378.
