Rescued - Marvel Impaled on Fence, Left to Die



Marvel is truly living up to the name given to her by her rescuers.

The wound from being impaled goes clear through her thigh.

It’s a marvel that this sweet pit bull mix, impaled on a cyclone fence at Weequahic Park and left to die, was found alive, rescued in time and treated for severe puncture wounds that would have killed most animals. And it’s inconceivable that someone would actually allow this to happen to any animal.

Associated Humane Societies is offering a $1,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people involved in the cruelty and abandonment of this dog.

Marvel was rushed to our medical department to be sedated and receive immediate examination and treatment.

According to Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park Executive Director Roseann Trezza, the dog is convalescing at AHS Newark Medical Department, being treated for the two large gaping holes made from the fencing. Ms. Trezza said it is truly miraculous that the injuries she suffered did not affect her uterus, intestines, stomach or any other vital organs.

Marvel was found, impaled on the fence, by someone on February 10 who immediately called Associated Humane Societies.

The gaping hole on the inside of her leg.

“Although we will never be sure exactly what happened to this dog, we feel that whoever did this wanted to make sure that the friendly, trusting and devoted dog would not follow them .... so one or more persons attempted to throw her over the fence but they missed the effort and she was impaled on the fencing,” Ms. Trezza said. “They left her hanging there until someone spotted the dog and alerted Newark Animal Control. NAC Animal Control Officer Larry Freeman came on the scene to rescue her.”

“The young female pit bull mix was not struggling -- she just hung quietly and ACO Freeman thought the dog may bite him when he tries to handle her. But she remained quiet as he lifted her up and off as gently as possible,” Ms. Trezza continued. “The park is only a few blocks from the Society's shelter and within minutes, she was sedated and on the veterinarian's exam table.”

Marvel is healing nicely, (see photo right), from her near-deadly experience, but eventually will be in need of a loving home. The Associated Humane Societies is located at 124 Evergreen Ave. in Newark, convenient to Routes 1 and 9, Route 22, the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway. Anyone wishing to adopt this dog may come in or contact us to fill out an Adoption Application.

You can see additional photos on Marvel's rescue and progress in our current Humane News.

Meantime, anyone who wishes to help in Marvel’s treatment can make donations on her behalf or any of the injured animals that regularly come through the Societies’ doors through its ResQ Fund, a restricted fund to help offset the expenses of animals requiring special care. Please donate to our ResQ Fund today!

UPDATE! Take a look a Marvel's fabulous forever home!!
