In Eatontown, New Jersey, a tiny nine-pound poodle mix was frightened – all she did was tremble after she was brought to the Monmouth County SPCA over the weekend. Che-Che’s owners both died from complications of the deadly virus.
According to the Monmouth County SPCA, CheChe was kept in isolation and then given a bath with hot soapy water. Her caretakers wore protective equipment. Calls to adopt CheChe have been pouring in, and the organization wants to honor the dog’s family by finding the perfect home.
