New Jersey Aid for Animals (NJAFA) board member Kelly Matthews, a Gloucester Township resident, submitted the following to Patch regarding a dog in need of a home for just four weeks:
Lulu has been failed twice in her short life. First at the hands of her previous owner, who left her outside cold and hungry even through Hurricane Sandy. Then, just after NJAFA President Kathy McGuire gained custody of Lulu, it happened again. Not even 24 hours into a new life, Lulu's advocate changed her mind and Kathy's phone rang—“Come get her”—and little Lulu came to live at NJAFA headquarters.
After she was seen by a vet it was determined Lulu was heartworm positive. This poor girl needs your help so she can have a new start in the New Year. Lulu needs a quiet place to stay starting on Jan. 2 after she is given the medication for heartworm. She will only be your guest for four weeks, and NJAFA will provide her food and crate. She needs a quiet corner of your home and walks three times a day. If you can open your home to this sweet girl and be her fresh start in 2013, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
