Chihuahua Abused by Same Abuser of Candy



An unbelievably bizarre sequence of events has caused animal cruelty to two animals – both of whom had belonged to the same owner – and abused by the same boyfriend!

Candy had been hit or kicked in the head after she peed on the floor. The case was heard in Newark Municipal Court and the offender was ordered to pay the NJ SPCA $3,000 – and the Associated Humane Societies got nothing. Candy was a patient in the Society’ Medical Dept. for several weeks due to a head tilt.

And then on New Year’s Day, it happened all over again – same cast of characters but a different dog. New Year’s Day is the time of a new beginning – when, after soul searching, we try to become a better person. Not here in Newark! By mid-afternoon, we responded to a call from the Newark Police Dept. to rescue a Chihuahua who had been kicked in the face in a domestic violence situation. The dog’s eye had popped out and the Society’s Animal Control Officer responded to the New Year’s Day tragedy and transported the dog to the Animal Hospital of Fairfield. The veterinary staff found it necessary to remove the eye. The owner transferred ownership of 3 year old Zoey to the Society who is now in our Medical Dept. for continued medical care.

According to the Police Dept.’s Incident Report, Zoey’s owner called after her boyfriend grabbed two kitchen knives and began to attack the pet owner and her sister after he mistreated the dog. The sisters had originally left the apartment and when the returned, they found the dog’s left eye hanging out of the socket. The argument escalated and the abuser was arrested on various counts. The matter is being handled by the proper authorities.

Our efforts and attention are for a very sweet dog who, like every animal that comes through our doors, does not deserve the abuse and cruelty that it experiences. Several of the injured animals that arrive are victims of domestic violence. Zoey has retained her optimistic love of people. The Society’s Res-Q Fund will pay for the emergency veterinary care for Zoey. Please donate to our Res-Q Fund as the contributions are spent quickly for specialized vet care for needy animals. For more information on Zoey, please contact us and refer to Zoey, File N-106856-F (Newark).
