Pit Bulls - Like Mumps - Fighting for Their Lives



Do these photos upset you? They certainly upset us. Here at the Society we see and help what most people don't want to hear or read about. The recent headlines about Michael Vick and his involvement in dogf ighting have brought attention to the way pit blls are trained, treated and killed. The stories may seem unbelievable -- but they're true. We handle such cases every day. The only positive aspct of the media glare is that dog fighting is finally getting the media attention it deserves.

Meet Mumps. Somehow this pit bull found his way to an Irvington, N J man who had `just found him and was gong to try and help him' --but first, the man had to get his hair done. It all started when the Associated Humaen Societies' Animal Control Officer responded to an alert from a citizen who saw a pit bull, clearly in distress, tied to a pole on heavily traveled Springfield Ave. in Irvington.

Thrown into illegal dog fighting, the young dog's head was severely swollen and infected and he appeared to be starving. The Society's ACO contacted the local police who were directed by passersby to a second floor hair salon where a man from Newark was getting his hair braided. He told the officers he found the dog a few days before and was going to try to help it. The police advised him that the Society was going to take the dog for its welfare.

When the dog arrived in the Society's Medical Dept., Dr. Thomas Padhi, drained the infected area and put the dog on medication. The NJ SPCA has issued Summonses against the Newark resident.

We affectionately named him "Mumps" and he is now healthy and happy, and efforts are being made to find him a lifetime home.

Mumps, feeling 200% better!
