Skunks may be little stinkers but they help the environment in many ways. They aid farmers by eating many garden pests, including mice, voles, beetles, various larvae, wasps and crickets.

Murder hornets??? Yeah...they eat those too...

What do you call a group of outdoor cats? Typically, community cats live in a colony (a group of related cats). The colony lives and operates in a specific territory - for example, a restaurant dumpster or the home of a feeder - where food is available. Although feral cats may be seen by those who feed them, strangers may not even realize that feral cats are living nearby because they rarely see them!

Your friendly PSA!! The more you know......

Foxes have a natural fear of people. If you see one outside during the day, it's no cause for alarm. They will usually run away from you as soon as they detect your presence.

If not, the fox has probably learned to associate people with food (likely because someone has been feeding them), and may exhibit a boldness or even approach you. These foxes can easily be scared away by making loud noises such as yelling or blowing whistles.

Foxes are not dangerous to humans, except when they are rabid (which is very rare) or when they are captured and handled. Even then, a fox’s natural tendency is to flee rather than fight.

Foxes will also eat various fruits, but they usually do not bother garden vegetables.

Sometimes foxes are blamed for damage they did not cause, such as when they are spotted eating from spilled trash when neighborhood dogs or other animals were responsible for the overturned trashcan.

A fox cutting through your yard is probably just passing through on their way between hunting areas and no action is necessary on your part.

***UPDATE*** REUNITED!! Panda is home safe & sound after 10 hours, 47 minutes :)

"Thanks for sharing. She came home on her own. Very proud of herself. "
-Panda's Owner
Please spread the word! Panda was LOST on April 5, 2021 in Woodbridge Township, NJ 07001 near Cornell and Harvard

Message from Owner: We're freaking out. She's a Pennsylvania resident. She's part of a large family of animals and was enjoying her time away from them all. She's been to her NJ home many times but is not familiar with the outdoors area. We think the door was not closed all the way last night and she slipped out. Call her by name. Offer her food. Call us and we'll come right over. She means the world to us. We are still dealing with a traumatic injury her sister sustained. Please keep an eye out!

Description: Tuxedo tabby. Not necessarily friendly but not unfriendly. Cautious.
But, she slipped out last night. She is unfamiliar with this area. She is kept inside when in NJ. She lives in Pennsylvania and doesn't know what pavement is. Please call the contact numbers if you see her. She can probably be lured with food. Tuna.

KILLED by Brooklyn ACC 3/17/2021 😢
RIP sweet boy... YOU MATTERED....

RILEY was friendly and waggy when he arrived at the shelter. He thought he was out on a nice outing with his family. It was only after his leash was handed to the Brooklyn intake staff, and his parent walked out the door and left him behind, that his wagging tail slowly came to a stop, as he looked around quizzically, asking with his eyes, “They are coming back right?” No one responded. Now he is trying to navigate the shelter environment at 7 years of age, and it is understandable he is feeling frightened, anxious and alone at the shelter. And even though he was also friendly at his medical exam, wagging his tail at everyone, it has finally hit home after a month of incarceration that he will never see his family again. He is so heartbroken and crushed at the loss of the people he loved, the small dog he played with. His family failed him! All Riley needed to learn was the command, “drop it leave it” so he would understand that giving up a nice resource, only gets you a better one. But his family didn’t bother to spend the time to get him instruction, and now he will pay the ultimate price with his life if we cannot find him that experienced foster or adopter who can give him the structured, quiet home where he can get that second chance. Won’t you please take a chance on Riley? MESSAGE OUR PAGE or EMAIL US at [email protected] for assistance fostering or adopting him.

INTAKE DATE: 8-Feb-2021
RILEY, ID# 111522, 7 yrs old, 68 lbs, Male
Brooklyn ACC, Large Mixed Breed, Black / White
Surrender Reason: STRAY
Shelter Assessment Rating: New Hope Only
No children (under 13)

**************************************
📍 PLEASE, message Dogs Lives Matter - Saving NYC Dogs or email [email protected] if you can FOSTER or ADOPT 📍
**************************************

INTAKE PROFILE - BASIC INFORMATION: Riley is an approx. 7 year old medium mixed breed that was surrendered to ACC by the police. Riley previously lived with 2 adults and 1 small mixed breed dog. Riley would growl and attempt to bite when someone touches his toy. Riley had a bite incident on 2/8/2021 where he bite the owner that broke skin and drew blood. Owner received medical attention for the wound.

INTAKE NOTES – DATE OF INTAKE, 8-Feb-2021: Upon Intake, Riley held a neutral body with a wagging tail throughout intake. Riley allowed counselor to collar, scan for a microchip, and place a leash over his head to walk to medical without growling, barking, or showing teeth.

BEHAVIOR NOTES

Means of surrender (length of time in previous home): Stray
Riley was surrendered due to a bite incident in the home with the owner.

Bite History:
Riley had a bite incident on 2/8/2021 where he bite the owner that broke skin and drew blood. Owner received medical attention for the wound.

Staff Note:
At this time there is little behavioral information about Riley in a home setting. The behavior reported is what has been observed at the care center with staff. Riley was surrendered due to a bite incident in the home with the owner. Riley has concerning resource guarding, snapping at anyone who touches his toys. He has shown social behaviors with staff during interactions, soliciting attention with familiar handlers but can be wary of novel handlers. Recently Riley bit a handler who was taking him out for a walk, holding onto their finger. The bite resulted in broken skin and swelling. Riley will need an experienced foster, in an adult-only home that has experience managing resource guarding and bite histories.
The DOH has stipulated that the group will need to be notified of the bite history and that they notify a trainer that will train him.

SHELTER ASSESSMENT:

INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Date of intake: 8-Feb-2021
Summary: Neutral body, wagging tail, allowed for handling

MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Date of initial: 8-Feb-2021
Summary: BARH, wagging tail, distance decreasing behavior, jumps front legs up onto handler,

IN SHELTER OBSERVATIONS:
2/25: Handlers approached Riley's kennel to remove him for a reevaluation. Upon approach, Riley was hard barking and jumping on the kennel door. A handler offers him treats and he accepts with a soft mouth. The handler is able to leash him and he exits the kennel pulling hard. Once outside, Riley is anxious and unable to focus. He jumps on handlers, displaces with frequent urination, and takes treats harder. Upon being returned to his kennel, Riley enters the kennel without issue. But once the kennel door closes, Riley jumps on the kennel door snarling, eyes wide, and attempts to bite the handler. He does not accept treats and is fixated on the handler's hands. The handler is unable to remove the lead from the kennel as repeats the aforementioned behaviors. A treat is tossed further back into his kennel and Riley turns his head to look when he hears it land and the handler quickly remove the lead. When the handler attempts the lock the kennel, Riley bites the lock and attempts to pull it into the kennel. He is unable to, but he tries two more times. He continues attempting to bite the handler as she locks the kennel and puts back up his kennel blocker. Riley does not settle and continues snarling even after the handler walks away.

2/14: Riley was wide-eyed and barking at the kennel front. He was given an enrichment item which he began to investigate. He barked again as the handler walked away.

2/12: A handler leashed Riley for a walk; the loop of the lead was on and being secured, Riley bites and holds onto the handler's finger. The handler pulls their right index finger out of his mouth. The bite resulted in two tears and a small puncture.

BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: New Hope Only

Recommendations:
No children (under 13)
Place with a New Hope partner

Recommendations comments:
No Children (under 13): Due to Riley's bite history and concerning resource guarding he would be best suited for an adult-only home.

Place with a New Hope Partner: Riley will need placement with a New Hope Partner who can provide management of his behavior concerns and continued training for any future foster.

Potential challenges:
Resource guarding
Multiple-bite history/risk of future aggression

Potential challenges comments:
Resource Guarding: Riley's previous owner stated that he will growl and attempt to bite anyone who touches his toys. Riley should be traded for items he has, and items should never be taken directly away from him. Please respect Riley's space when he is playing. See handout on Resource Guarding.

Multiple bite history/future of future aggression: Riley has bitten someone in his previous home that resulted in broken skin, as well as a handler at the care center. Please see handout on Bite history and Risk of future aggression.

Thor! Available at Bergen County Animal Shelter.
On Jan 11 we adopted Clarrise. For some time we were looking to adopt a dog who needed a loving home. Marge was great to work with and was happy that they decided to let us have her. Currently we have a 2 year old labradoodle named Cooper who is enjoying her.
