AHS Rescues Goldie - Badly Neglected And Abandoned Dog

It was early morning before most people awake when a badly injured dog was abandoned in front of an Irvington residence.

Society ACO Orlando Delgado was dispatched to the scene & found a quiet, mild mannered pit bull in obvious need of care. She had a large gash-type wound around her entire body.

Since it was too early for the AHS veterinarians to arrive at the shelter, ACO Delgado immediate brought the passive dog to the Animal Emergency and Referral Associates (AERA) in Fairfield. It was after the AERA vet performed surgery that the wound was caused by a harness. The tissue had grown over the harness so the cause of the injury was not visible. They kept the female terrier over the holiday weekend during which time, the staff and vet techs fell in love with her.

The veterinarian's record showed that she had been given the name "Goldie" and she is about 4 years old. Her personality won them over as she would sit, give paw, lay down and she has been given a AAA rating on her report card!!

After the long weekend, Goldie was picked up by ACO Delgado & brought to the AHS Medical Dept. where she now receives post-operative care.

You can be proud that your donations to the AHS Res-Q Fund continue to work to help sick and injured animals. Donors can see their dollars making a difference for homeless orphans! Due to the number of animals that arrive through our open door policy, our Res-Q Fund is constantly used up and we are always in dire need of replenishment.

We never say "NO" to those that need care and we are proud to say that YOU and AHS make a difference in their lives.

Goldie will be available for adoption soon! She is a great dog and as she convalesces, we will be able to give more feedback on her sterling qualities. She must have been owned by a caring person who fitted her with a harness, taught her manners and commands -- but what happened? Was she stolen? given away?

For more information on Goldie, call AHS at 973-824-7080 and refer to File 134900 or e-mail us.
