In just one year, the Anti Cruelty Behavior Team (ACBT) has worked extensively with dozens of animal victims of cruelty at the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center in Madison, New Jersey to prepare them for their future lives as beloved pets. On March 27, we’ll celebrate the anniversary of the Rehabilitation Center—the facility that made countless happy endings possible for victims of puppy mills, animal hoarding and neglect.
Over the past year, we’ve shared their stories with you, including recent Rehabilitation Center graduates Peanut Butter and Jelly, a group of dachshunds rescued from a hoarding situation, and Zack, a puppy mill survivor. This week, we’d like to tell Bubba’s story.
Bubba came to the Rehabilitation Center in mid-November 2013 from an overwhelmed shelter. He was scared and undersocialized, and he needed intensive rehabilitation to prepare him to join a new home.
ASPCA Anti-Cruelty behaviorists, with support from behavior and care experts at St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center, worked with Bubba every day for several weeks to reduce his fear and anxiety. We are thrilled to report that Bubba successfully graduated from the Rehabilitation Center and was transferred to St. Hubert’s to find a loving home. It didn’t take long—soon, Bubba found his perfect match. He is now thriving with his adopter, and we couldn’t be more pleased by the happy ending to Bubba’s story.
