Scottie - Neglected, Rescued from Drainage Hole



It was close to midnight when the Associated Humane Societies Newark shelter received a call from the Police Dept. requesting an ambulance to the scene of a helpless dog in distress. The Police had heard the whimpering cries of a dog and were finally able to trace it to an empty open warehouse building. A dog had fallen in a hole that may have been a drainage well and which was over 5 feet deep. It was estimated that the dog had been stuck in there for over a day.

AHS Asst. Director Scott Crawford immediately went to the scene and after a quick observation, the only way to extricate him from the well was with a Ketch-All animal control pole. The noose was placed around and under his body and he was quickly lifted from the hole. Asst. Director Crawford returned back to base with the young male Shih Tzu type.

After a cursory examination by Scott, the small dog did not appear injured or ill. He was extremely filthy and grimy for his time in the hole. Top on the list of necessities for this orphan was a spa day to see what he really looks like. Upon examination by our veterinarian, it was noted that Scottie has a congenital deformity of his right front leg but he it doesn't stop this little guy. There was no identification, no microchip and no lost dog reports to help reunite with an owner. We call him "Scottie" as a namesake for his rescuer.

A donation helps us to continue to dispatch our ambulances for the many unique calls for animals in need of assistance which are cared for and placed for adoption.

The AHS has over 250 dogs at our Newark shelter in need of "a new leash on life". Many of them are purebred animals...such as Chihuahuas, Cocker Spaniels, Pointers, Dachshund, Pug, Akita, Labrador Retrievers, Shepherds, Rottweilers, West Highland Terrier, Poodles, Lhasa Apsos, Jack Russell Terrier and more!

For more information on Scottie, call AHS at 973-824-7080 or e-mail us. and refer to File 127150. The AHS is located at 124 Evergreen Ave. in Newark, just off of Frelinghuysen Ave., Rt. 1 and 9, near the Newark International Airport. The Society is open 7 days a week from noon until 5 p.m. for your convenience.
