RIDGEFIELD, N.J. -- The public is being asked to help find a rescue dog who escaped at the Vince Lombardi Service Area off the New Jersey Turnpike in Ridgefield during a transport trip to Connecticut.
The small beagle named Simon got away last Saturday while being taken from Soft Landings Road To Rescue in South Carolina to his new home, the organization's Sandy Jones said.
"He is very sweet but very scared," she said.
"We are reaching out to every shelter, rescue and organization in the area and surrounding areas," Jones said early Friday. "We have people out at the center with flyers and looking for Simon
Also we have a recovery team in place that has set up feeding stations in the area, but no sighting of Simon."
Simon is three years old, 25 pounds, neutered and micro-chipped.
Anyone who spots Simon is asked to contact Jones at (864) 933-2272 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
