Bleach Thrown on Two Dogs



On July 5th, Newark Police brought in two dogs found as "strays" . The Police Officer stated that someone had thrown bleach on the dogs.

The male and female Pit Bulls were exceptionally wet with a very strong smell of chlorine bleach. Both dogs were breathing heavily with acute eye irritation and vomiting. hey were given immediate medical care and watered down internally and externally. They were monitored daily to insure that there were no complications or lasting effects.

It is only through the generosity of our members to the Res-Q Fund that we are able to sustain the efforts of long-term care or specialized veterinary services for the needy that come through our doors.

After a brief investigation, the Society discovered that it was a domestic violence situation and the dogs were going to stay at the Society until after the investigation was completed and the matter was adjudicated. The state animal enforcement was given the case and eventually, the matter was remanded to Newark Municipal Court. After some postponements, the matter has been referred to the County Prosecutor. Unfortunately, these steps have delayed justice for these dogs. An investigation by the Society's Animal Control Officer revealed that the house in which these dogs lived was boarded up. Phone calls made to a cell phone have been unresponsive.

It is unfair to these two dogs, named "Brandi" and "Bacardi", to be without the chance for adoption and they have waited for over four months. They are at the Society's Newark facility and ready for "a new leash on life".

The Society is open 7 days a week for your convenience. For more information, call the Society at 973-824-7080 or contact us by e-mail. The shelter is located at 124 Evergreen Ave. in Newark, just off of Frelinghuysen Ave., 3 blocks before the Elizabeth line. The Shelter is convenient to Routes 1 and 9, NJ Turnpike, Route 22. Just refer to 1 year old Bacardi, File 110591-M and 3 year old Brandi, File 110590-F.

If a pit bull is not the breed of your choice, the Society has several mixed breeds as well as purebreds including Shih Tzus, Miniature Pinscher, Chihuahuas, Pekingese, Poodles, Boston Terrier, Shepherds, Maltese and more!
