Serena - Emaciated, Tied to Pole, Abandoned

It was an icy, cold, freezing night when Alvis Carrington, an Associated Humane Societies Animal Control Officer, was given an emergency call concerning a dog in distress.

The ACO went to a busy intersection where an emaciated, gaunt dog was tied to a pole next to a store. ACO Carrington went into the store to inquire about the pathetic Cane Corso in need of immediate attention.

The customers advised that the dog had been there most of the day, and it was alleged that they contacted Newark Animal Control and they never responded.

The female dog was in atrocious shape - gaunt and traumatized. We call her Serena and she is in our Administrative Offices. The Cane Corso was checked by our veterinarian, blood samples have been taken, and we are loading her up with plenty of food and water for her emaciated and dehydrated condition.

Your continued efforts to help our Res-Q Fund keeps the expense for long-time care possible.

UPDATE February 9, 2014 - Serena was diabetic when she arrived and was started on insulin. Despite the best care we could give her, Serena had suffered too much neglect in her life, and she passed away. The last few days of her life were filled with warmth, a tasty food bowl, a super cozy bed, and peace and quiet in the Director's Office.
