Sweet Little Dog Whose Owners Died From Coronavirus Seeks New Home

Monmouth County SPCA is like the rest of us. They have seen how COVID-19 has been affecting families, business and events around the world. They are now facing the reality of how the pandemic will affect community pets too.

Little Che-Che came to the Monmouth County SPCA after two members of her family passed away due to the virus.

The 9-lb dog was scared and shaking when she arrived. I'm sure none of us are able to imagine what it's like for a dog to suddenly lose everything she's ever known and then end up in an unfamiliar place.


Staff knew Che-Che needed some comfort and even through PPE, Monmouth County SPCA staff could tell a loving touch was all it took to help this good girl feel safe.

Che-Che has been the recipient of some loving veterinary care, including a dental, spay and vaccines plus a warm bubbly bath so that rubbery gloves and crinkly gowns are no longer needed to give her some affection!

When Che-Che is ready, Monmouth County SPCA plan to honor the family and those they lost by finding this sweet little girl the perfect home ❤


Sadly, the staff know that Che-Che is going to be the first of many pets coming into care. They are anticipating many pets needing a safe haven and want to be able to offer animals a loving place to call home if they become temporarily without one.

Thanks to a generous donor, who wishes to remain anonymous any gift made to the Monmouth County SPCA will be matched dollar for dollar. They are calling it the "Compassion Counts" Matching Gift Campaign. Click here to donate on their website .

For those who are interested in adopting Che-Che, the staff have noted that they can only consider those applicants without children or other pets to adopt her. Applications are being reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis and unfortunately, with our limited staff, we will not be able to return every email and phone call. They will be SURE to find Che-Che the perfect home!
