Forrest - Suffers Head Injuries Due to Neglect

The AHS Newark facility is an inner-city shelter …. and every day is a new beginning … and new hope for the unfortunate victims that come through our doors. One of the most recent visitors arrived in a taxi – a somewhat inebriated gent with a pup at closing time. The man said that the pup had been dropped on his head at home and also been `pinned up against the wall' by a dog. The pup’s head is permanently tilted. The owner attempted to show how good the dog could stand -- and dropped him on his head on the Society’s tile floor.

Our office staff advised that the pup would be taken by us to an emergency veterinary service for further examination. The inebriated and argumentative gent refused to give us any information including his name and address.

The 3 month old male pup was immediately brought to an emergency veterinary service who, after several possible symptoms were ruled out, advised that the pup had suffered head trauma. In some cases, traumatic brain injury can last days or weeks … or even longer.

We call him Forrest and he is a lovable, gentle, yet playful pup who was deprived of a normal, healthy puppyhood by an irresponsible owner. This is one visitor in the day of an inner-city shelter. The Society stepped up to the plate to take care of this pup who needs to find a better home than the one he had. Your donations to the Res-Q Fund will help us to deal with the emergency veterinary bills that occur on a daily basis.

And for Forrest??? He is getting lots of exercise but does not like using stairs – he may have a depth perception problem. The adorable pit bull has a very sweet personality and is in need of a lifetime of love. File 122453-M For more information, call the Society at 973-824-7080 or e-mail us. The Society is located at 124 Evergreen Ave. in Newark, just off of Rt. 1 and 9 near the N J Turnpike.
