Reward Offered by AHS for Pit Bull Abuser



Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park Zoo is offering a $1,000 reward to help find the person or persons who threw acid on the face of a pit bull terrier and left her to die on the streets of Newark.

“Dogs like this are usually abused, often brutally killed by their owners because they refuse to participate in dog fighting competitions or they are not aggressive,” said Roseann Trezza, Executive Director, Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park. “This sweet dog was tortured, no doubt, because she didn’t have the instinct to fight. Whoever does this to any living creature needs to be found and prosecuted.”

Associated Humane is offering $1,000 to any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the dog’s abuser or abusers. The young female pit bull was found wandering on Fabyan Place by the police, who noted her condition and immediately contacted our animal control officer. When the animal control officer arrived at the scene, she was hiding behind a parked car.

She was brought to our Newark Animal Care Center for immediate treatment and we then transported her to Garden State Veterinary Specialists in Tinton Falls for long-term care. Veterinarians there said that acid burned her face, back and thighs. Despite this, she remains happy with a tail that wags whenever people or animals approach her. She is about a year old and it is believed that the wounds are about a week old.

Now named Fabyana, she has returned to the Society, greatly healed and feeling happier than ever.

Illegal dog fighting has reached epidemic levels in many urban areas, and law enforcement officials are beginning to take notice and take action. Associated Humane Societies urges anyone who knows about illegal dog fighting activity to contact local police or the New Jersey SPCA at 1-800-582-5979.

Meanwhile, this sweet young lady will be convalescing and receiving intensive care for her multiple burns and needs your help with her bills. She is looking to the Res-Q Fund to help restore her beauty and you can help. Donate to our Res-Q Fund today and be a part of her recovery!
