Bernie and Dorie - Burned and Injured Strays Get Second Chance


He has an appealing personality that is engaging -- even though it is believed he had been deliberately set on fire. According to our veterinarian, these are not chemical burns .... he was a victim of cruelty and he survived the vicious act. Sadly, he slowly recuperated on his own but the wounds festered and has a secondary bacterial infection. Medication to soothe any discomfort has been administered along with antibiotics.

After his wounds have healed, "Bernie" will be altered and available for adoption.

This delightful fella is about 2 years old and needs to have a cushy, comfortable lifetime of pampering -- something that this gentle purrrsonality has missed.

The Society is offering a $2,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for this act of cruelty to Bernie. The cat was found on North 12th Street in Newark on Sept. 14th.

For information on this lovable cat, contact us and refer to File 104541 .

Update 1/17/12 - Bernie is now a Share-A-Pet in Kity City in Forked River. You can sponsor or adopt Bernie!

Newark's Mayor Cory Booker is pushing for a no-kill shelter to service Newark residents and has used disparaging comments about AHS to encourage interest in his project. The Society has refuted various claims which have been reported to local newspapers.

Bernie is an example of the animals that will suffer in this transition. Presently, Newark refuses to pay for veterinary care for any sick or injured animals that come through our doors from Newark. Even outside veterinary expenses at night, weekends or holidays are not paid for by Newark.

So what would happen to Bernie -- and the hundreds of sick and injured animals that the Society cares for if Mayor Booker had his shelter? Will Newark then pay for their medical needs? Should Booker open a no-kill shelter, the objective will be short-lived as a new shelter will be filled to capacity within a short time ... and he intends to take on additional towns which will bring even more animals into Newark. But when his new shelter opens, the Associated Humane Societies will finally become a no-kill facility -- a dream we have long hoped for.

Bernie is not an unusual nor an infrequent experience at the Society -- and we give medical attention and care to each and every one.

Meet Dorie -- a cat trying to survive with her 4 kittens in a Newark warehouse. A good portion of her tail was cut off by machinery. Mom and her kittens were brought to the Society for veterinary care and adoption. Mom had to have a portion of her tail amputated. Mom and her kittens are available for adoption. Dorie's file number is 104361.

Update 1/17/12 - Dorie is now a Share-A-Pet in Kitty City in Forked River. You can sponsor her or adopt her!

If you would like to help Bernie and his medical costs, please donate to the Res-Q Fund which is used for the veterinary and medical care of the hundreds of the needy animals that come through our doors.

As for the sick and injured strays of Newark and those that need prolonged care .... What will Mayor Booker do???
