In Brief

Adopt A Pet seeking home for blind chow

Sharon Gaboff of Millstone Township, the director of Adopt A Pet, has been helping animals in need for more than a decade.

The most recent animal to benefit from Gaboff’s love and patience is Princess, a blind 1-year-old chow chow. Rescued from a shelter, Princess is totally blind and had to undergo surgery on what was left of her eyes.

Adopt A Pet has placed Princess, who is housebroken, with two families, but for various reasons the adoptions did not work out and the dog was returned to Adopt A Pet, Gaboff said.

The dog will remain with Adopt A Pet for as long as it takes for her to be adopted, Gaboff said, adding that a trainer has offered his services to make sure Princess adapts to her new home.

In addition to a loving family being sought to adopt Princess, Adopt A Pet is seeking donations to help pay for her $725 eye operation. For more information write to Help Princess, care of Adopt A Pet, P.O. Box 6384, Freehold 07728 or call (732) 462-5184.
