Van Gogh - His Journey So Far in Video



It was 7 weeks ago today that Vinnie Van Gogh was first brought in to our AHS Newark facility, in a cardboard box, near death. Due to the location of where Vinnie was found, and the nature of his injuries, we are confident that this young pup was used as bait for a dog fighter. Vinnie's injuries were absolutely horrific, but we do not need to go over the details again. You can find his original story here, or do a search for Van Gogh in our Site Search box.

The video below is of Vinnie's journey over the last seven weeks. It may be difficult to look at the first few pictures of Vinnie in the beginning, but it is necessary to see them to realize just how far Vinnie has come. Vinnie went from being a nameless, faceless animal, that was used and abused by people that do not even deserve to breathe the same air that he does, to a brand new puppy. This new puppy is loved and cared for even more than he realizes, and will never, ever be hurt again.

We mention our Res-Q Fund time and time again when we talk about Vinnie, and all of our animals that come to us as victims of abuse, neglect and abandonment. In this video, you will actually see just what your donations to our Res-Q Fund have done. You have enabled us to bring this beautiful little soul back to life. From the bottle of wound healing spray that costs $36.00, to the surgery that Vinnie is having today, that costs several thousand dollars, we are able to do this for Vinnie because you cared enough to help. This is how important our Res-Q Fund is. Whether you make a small donation or a large one, every bit of it is important, and goes toward helping Vinnie and so many others like him. To help us save more lives, please contribute to our Res-Q Fund.

Thank you all so much for helping Vinnie, and so many others. Please keep Vinnie in your thoughts and prayers today, as he undergoes hip surgery.
