Twiggy-Starved, Abandoned in Crate

Someone was waiting for her to die when they had no more use for her. They left her in a crate for countless days – as evidenced by the pools of urine and feces that had collected under her. When that didn't work, they abandoned her.

A Newark resident waiting at a bus stop at Montclair Ave and Parker St. and saw a crate nearby. When she saw the hapless animal inside, she called the Newark Police who brought the dog to the Society’s Newark facility. The female pit bull had bite wounds all around the head and face – she was skin and bones and starving. It was about 8 a.m. when the Police Officer arrived.

Society staffers saw the pathetic pit bull was alert and started hand feeding her. She could not stand on her own and was in need of immediate attention. She was cold to the touch and blankets were put on and under her. She was covered in urine and feces and it had pooled in the bottom of the crate.

The Society’s Medical Dept. is taking great care to improve her physical well being. We are going to change the direction in her life and put her on a brand new road to love and happiness.

We call her “Twiggy” and want to help find a new lifetime commitment for her.

The Society has a Res-Q Fund for such cases as Twiggy. She will be with us in our Medical Dept. for awhile. Contributions to this Fund are used for sick and injured animals and veterinary specialists.

If you would like to help our girl, please donate to our Res-Q Fund so that we may help Twiggy and continue to help those who need us the most. For more information on Twiggy, please contact us or call the Society at 973-824-7080 and refer to File 111173-F.
