Earlier this week, we learned of the gruesome discovery of 44 dead dogs found at the home of an animal hoarder in Shamong. Now, one local bar is striving to help the surviving dogs that were seized.

New Jersey State Police arrested 65-year-old Donna Roberts on November 13th during an inspection of her residence by the Burlington County Health Department that uncovered severe animal cruelty. The remains of the deceased dogs were found stores in plastic bags in the freezer.

Now, Pic-A-Lilli Inn in Shamong is doing what they can to support the over 100 dogs that were still alive and taken from Roberts' home. They are collecting blankets, towels, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, pet food, and monetary donations to benefit the shelters in case of those dogs. The shelters are Burlington County Animal Shelter, St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Association, Burlington County Animal Alliance, and Monmouth County Animal Shelter.

There has been a donation box set up at Pic-A-Lilli Inn, located on Route 206 in Shamong.

Of course, these stranded and abused pups are also in need of their fur-ever homes. Please contact the shelters if you'd like to foster or adopt.

Thank you, thank you to our friends at Pic-A-Lilli for stepping in to help these four-legged friends.
