Abandoned dog left with note on its collar will soon have new home

    An abandoned pit bull left only with a note on its collar will soon get a new home.

    The female pit bull was left abandoned outside of the Tri-County Veterinary Hospital in Pilesgrove Township, New Jersey on December 20.

    Today’s Subeam reports the Tri-County Veterinary Hospital has received numerous offers to adopt “Amber.”

    The pit bull was found with a note attached to her collar that read “I need a family.”
