Bella the Lab - Injured, Healed and Ready for Her Home

The Society frequently warns pet owners of leaving animals unattended in their backyards, and sadly, Bella paid the price for this oversight. People who have a fenced-in yard for their pets to enjoy used to be an asset as a pet owner but in this day, pets can be stolen, injured, escape, etc.

The 1 year old Labrador Retriever was enjoying her time in the sun while her family was inside. When they heard Bella's screams, they ran out to see children running away and bricks strewn about. It is theorized that they were throwing bricks at the dog and the missiles injured her leg badly--she suffered a compound fracture.

The family had no money to care for the dog and signed over ownership of the dog to the Society. Due to the injury, the Society's veterinarian, Dr. Lisa Bongiovani, found it necessary to send Bella to the Animal Emergency and Referral Associates on Bloomfield Ave. in Fairfield, NJ. It was because this was a compound fracture, that Bella had to be sent to a specialist which costs several thousand dollars. If vet care is done at our Newark facility, many times it is done at a lower cost or even for free. The owners also have a male at home which may be for breeding purposes - both dogs were not altered.

Thanks to Animal Emergency and Referral Associates veterinarians' expertise, Bella was taken care of and is now ready to be adopted into a forever home. File N-100824-F.
