Jada - Behaved with Bravery for Domestic Violence Victim

Headlines recently exploded of domestic violence in the sport world ….but the tragic situations extend far beyond what is seen in the news. Sadly, it is not just humans who are affected and very often involve pets who cannot escape the horrors. Many victims fail to seek safety and the animals are threatened, hurt or killed.

In mid-October, a Newark resident was involved in an altercation with a mate, her three dogs leapt to her defense and a melee started which eventually involved the Police. The AHS was contacted and arrived early in the morning to take all three to the AHS facility. Since the tumult created dog to dog fights, all had various degrees of injuries – some of which were so serious that this female had a badly injured ear. She was brought to Animal Emergency in Fairfield for care.

The owner of the three dogs came in and claimed only one of her dogs. Jada, the brave pit bull who went to her owner’s defense, had several bite marks on the face and injuries to the ear. The owner said she would be back for Jada but gave many empty promises and never returned. After 4 months at AHS, Jada’s devotion would be better directed to a new owner as she has been abandoned.

Donations to our Res-Q Fund help us to continue to help Jada and others who need a chance at a lifetime of love.

For more information, call AHS at 973-824-7080 and refer to File 129981-F. You can visit her at 124 Evergreen Ave. in Newark, or e-mail us
