While on patrol on March 4, 2011, PO Anderson recovered a stray dog. He transported the animal to Guttenberg, NJ Police Headquarters and attempted to locate the owner. When it seemed that the animal did not hae an owner, Animal Control was called and advised that they did not have any room and would have to euthanize the dog. Being an animal lover, he did not want to see this happen. He took the dog to his home, fed and washed it. He then brought it to Oradell Animal Hospital to see if the dog had a chip with its information. The dog did have one and it was a lost dog for six months from Staten Island, New York. The owner was contacted and was reunited with the dog.
It is only through the professionalism, diligence and concern for life of the officer and Oradell Animal Hospital that we were able to have such a great conclusion for this lost dog.
