Cruelty to animals takes many forms and tragically, one that we see most often stems from victims of abuse by children.
This stray dog was being beaten by teen-agers and as a result, his eye was badly injured and came out of its socket. Luckily, he was removed from the situation before any further injury could take place. He was brought in by a good samaritan, and the frightened fella was immediately ushered into the Medical Dept. for prompt care. Due to the nature of the injury, the eye was removed. Thanks to the Society's Res-Q Fund, your donation dollars are used for medical care for sick and injured animals that come through our doors.
We call him Freeway and we are hoping he will find a fast road into your heart! File N-92135-M (Newark). If you are interested in adopting Freeway, please contact us. He is currently convalescing at the Society's Newark shelter. In addition to Freeway, there are over 300 dogs and 200 cats and kittens hoping for "a new leash on life".
Unfortunately, the youths that committed this horrible act are not known and will probably continue to treat animals without any reverence for life. The Society's Education Team visits many area schools to impart the message of kindness and responsibility. Your donations help us in many areas of animal rescue and our programs to bring the message to school children. Please donate today and make a difference - in the lives of children AND animals!
