Do you know Jake?
This little Bichon was found by a teacher on Ridge Road in Orange this morning. He was terribly matted and thirsty.
Jake is identified by a tag attached to his peace/love rescue collar (with peace signs, dog paws and hearts) and a phone number.
Unfortunately, the phone number – 203-624-1857 – has been disconnected and the owner cannot be reached.
Update: The little guy was cared for at Turkey Hill School where the teacher works, and then the Milford-Orange Animal Control picked him up around 10 a.m.
The animal control officer said they would clean Jake up, and he is there now. Call 203-783-3279 and help Jake get back home or to see him. If he is not claimed, he would be up for adoption after a certain amount of time.
We hope he gets a second chance at happiness.
Original story: Currently, at 9:15 a.m., Jake is in the teacher’s car in the Turkey Hill School parking lot with water and a blanket. But not for long, the Milford-Orange Animal Control will be picking him up soon.
If you recognize Jake or the phone number, please e-mail Orange Live or call the school at 203-891-8040 (before 10 p.m.) or call Animal Control at 203-783-3279 and help Jake get back home.
