Society Rescues Shih-Tzu Wrapped and Left for Trash

The AHS is offering a $1,0000 reward for information which will lead to the arrest & conviction of the individual (s) who abandoned a white/brown female Shih Tzu who was found injured, emaciated, horrifyingly matted & trapped in a closed plastic bag.

When Darius Webster of Newark was walking his dog, his pit bull refused to leave the plastic bag alone. So Darius tied up his dog and found a pathetic, matted, sick dog stuffed inside. He brought the dog to the Society's Newark Animal Care Center.

After shaving the dog down, it was discovered she had sustained an injury to the leg. The dog was then brought to Dr. Tony Tavormina at the VIP Animal Hospital in Elizabeth who advised that the dog had a crushed left front paw. Dr. Tavormina released the dog back to the Society for intensive medical care. The AHS will utilize its Res-Q Fund which is established for the sole purpose of providing emergency treatment or other intensive medical care to animals that have suffered from cruel or neglectful treatment. Throughout her ordeal, she has been a gentle, quiet and affectionate dog who will respond greatly to a loving home. We want her to know that there is a life outside of the one she had known. It is the dawn of a new life….and that is why we call her Aurora.

Your donations are urgently needed to help us provide the emergency and intensive care needed for Aurora, Renaissance and others in dire need. Please help by contributing to our Res-Q Fund.

Update on Aurora!!  Please read more on Aurora's recovery, and her wonderful adoption!
