READING — A yellow Labrador Retriever is having trouble finding his way home after Hurricane Sandy hit.
“He was found in the Reading area by a man who was on his way to Philadelphia, and was taken to an animal-friendly emergency shelter” in Philadelphia, Damon March, director of operations for the Humane Society of Berks County explained.
March, also the assistant coordinator for Berks County Animal Response Team, said “We’d love to reunite this lost dog with his family. We know someone is missing him dearly right now.
“People in our community lost a lot in the hurricane, and if we can help this guy and his people get back together, it’s a step in the right direction,” March said.
A press release from the Humane Society indicates the agencies are having trouble “pinpointing the dog’s point of origin, as the finder was not from the area and could not describe where he found the dog.”
March explained that the HSBC received a call from a member of the Philadelphia County Animal Response Team “that a dog from our area had been brought in by someone seeking shelter.”
The dog was not wearing a collar or tags and does not have an identifying microchip, which is complicating efforts to find his owner. He is believed to be one to two years old, and is not neutered.
The dog is currently in the care of Philadelphia CART.
