Dog Brutally Attacked for Having Accident in House



READ UPDATE ON CANDY

All because this appealing dog peed in the house, she was viciously and brutally attacked.

When the emergency veterinary clinic washed away the blood, the water and soothed her lacerations, underneath was an adorable dog who did not deserve the treatment she suffered.

The Society was called out at 11:30 p.m. in response to an animal emergency in Newark. According to reports received concerning this Pekingese mix, the owner said her boyfriend beat the dog. When she got inside the apartment, she saw that the dog was bleeding from the mouth and ears and was wet as if her boyfriend threw hot water on the dog. Since it was after hours, the Society's Animal Control Officer took the dog to Animal Emergency and Referral Associates in Fairfield for immediate care. X-rays were taken which indicated no fractures to the skull and no broken bones. The pathetic little dog was brought back to the Society's Newark Medical Dept. after a night at the Animal Emergency offices. There was some swelling and bruising. The dog was weak and may have some head trauma ... but it is still too early to tell if the damage is permanent.

The cruelty case has been referred to the SPCA.

The Pekingese lass is 2 years old and her owner has released ownership to the Society. A new permanent home is needed for the traumatized lass. We call her "Candy" .... and we hope you will help us by donating to our Res-Q Fund for the expense involved at the Animal Emergency and Referral Associates and for the medical care she is presently receiving.

In the meantime, Candy is just one of hundreds of animals that come through our doors in need of costly medical care. The majority of sick and injured animals that come in to our Society's facility are from Newark. Newark's Mayor Cory Booker is pushing for a no-kill shelter to service Newark residents and has used disparaging comments about AHS to encourage interest in his project. The Society has refuted various claims which have been reported to local newspapers.

Candy is an example of the animals that will suffer in this transition. Presently, Newark refuses to pay for veterinary care for any sick or injured animals that come through our doors from Newark. Even outside veterinary expenses at night, weekends or holidays are not paid for by Newark.

So what would happen to Candy -- and the hundreds of sick and injured animals that the Society cares for if Mayor Booker had his shelter? Will Newark then pay for their medical needs? Should Booker open a no-kill shelter, the objective will be short-lived as a new shelter will be filled to capacity within a short time ... and he intends to take on additional towns which will bring even more animals into Newark. But when his new shelter opens, the Associated Humane Societies will finally become a no-kill facility -- a dream we have long hoped for.

If you would like to help us continue to help animals as we have in the past, please donate to help the helpless.

The Associated Humane Societies is located at 124 Evergreen Ave. in Newark, off of Frelinghuysen Ave., convenient to Routes 1 and 9, New Jersey Turnpike and Route 22. If you would like to help Candy and her medical costs, please donate to the Res-Q Fund which is used for the veterinary and medical care of the hundreds of the needy animals that come through our doors.

As for the sick and injured strays of Newark and those that need prolonged care .... What would Mayor Booker do???
