Two weeks ago, Clover was a dirty, disheveled, dehydrated, underfed, nameless mess after being rescued from a cliff at Garrett Mountain Park by a rescue volunteer and over two dozen public workers. The next day, the 21-pound rescued dog was jumping up on peoples’ laps at the veterinarian’s office, laying her front legs on them. While she was to be kept in quarantine for two weeks, calls had already poured in just a day or two after she was rescued from those willing to adopt the white poodle mix.
Named Clover by the nonprofit group who was handling her adoption, the lost canine was found by a random hiker on Garrett Mountain as well as two dozen Paterson firefighters, an animal control officer and Passaic County sheriff’s officers, who sought to reach the nervous pooch in a very narrow ravine. Her rescue came just in the nick of time. Paterson Animal Control Officer John DeCando said, “With the weather coming, I don’t think she would’ve made it.”
Apparently sweet Clover seemed to have been abandoned by a former owner who didn’t care for her. Though Clover had a collar, she had no further identifying information or background on her, such as a tag or microchip. Once her quarantine is over, she will be placed for adoption at Second Chance Pet Adoption League in Oak Ridge. Plenty of people have already been calling in asking about her, so chances are she’ll have her loving, forever home very soon.
