Handicapped Bull Terrier Needs Your Help!



When a man walked into the Society's Medical Dept. for assistance, he concocted a story that his dog had been hit by a car. The receptionist gave him the number of a near-by vet as we were unable to treat the dog at that time.

It was only a few hours later, the Society's Animal Control Officer was flagged down by Newark Police who advised that someone had tied this same female bull terrier to a pole and abandoned her in the heavy industrial area.

Barely a year old, she was deformed due to a congenital defect that had never been corrected. Despite this, her personality has been nothing but upbeat and sunny. Her disposition can be seen by the eternal smile she wears in spite of all that has happened. For this, we named her Courage.

Arrangements were made to bring Courage to Dr. Tom Scavelli of Garden State Veterinary Specialists in Tinton Falls, N J -- a 24 hour full service, critical care facility that we use in many of our special cases that utilize the Res-Q Fund.

According to Dr. Scavelli, it is believed that she was kept in a very tight space where she could not stand or move normally. The lack of movement coupled with the front leg deformity that was not corrected resulted in her hind legs being somewhat misshapen.

An operation was performed by Dr. Scavelli to cut the tendons in each of the wrists. Casts were applied and Courage will need to wear them for 4-6 weeks. Courage will be ready for adoption by the end of April. File N-69553-F (Forked River).

The Res-Q Fund was used to help in the expense of Courage’s operation. Additional funds are also needed to continue with the next 4-6 weeks of physical therapy and Courage’s medication. It is only through the Res-Q Fund that we could help Courage. It is donors’ support of the fund that enables us to give a second chance to deserving animals like Courage. Please give to the Res-Q Fund today!
