Donovan - Attacked by Larger Dog, Needed Emergency Care

It was the beginning of the holiday weekend when the AHS Newark facility received an emergency call concerning an injured dog.

ACO Orlando Delgado was dispatched to the scene and found a traumatized, injured dog laying on the sidewalk. According to the area residents, the small dog was traveling in the area and went into a backyard where a pit bull immediately attacked him. Working on sheer adrenalin, the mature male dog ran out of the yard and collapsed on the sidewalk. The local people put a blanket over the dog to subdue his fear and trepidation.

ACO Delgado immediately scooped the terrier mix up in his arms, placed him in the ambulance and he took the familiar journey to Animal Referral and Emergency Associates (AERA) in Fairfield. It is only through the generosity of our donors who support the Res-Q Fund, that we continue to give immediate and necessary care to all sick and injured animals that come through our doors.

His past history is unknown. Did he live in the area and went out for a bathroom break -- never to return? There were no clues as to where he belonged. He is now back at the AHS Medical Dept. where veterinarians oversee his care. The gentle dog is in need of a permanent lifelong commitment.

Every dog, cat, puppy and kitten -- whether sick or injured -- or healthy and waiting for adoption -- requires a lot of care, and donations are needed to continue our efforts. In addition to all of the necessary inoculations, deworming and flea/tick medications, food, water, sanitizing cages/kennels are all part of the huge upkeep for our inner city shelter.

Tomorrow, next week, next month, we will have taken in more needy, sick, injured animals that will need our help. Can we count on you to help in our quest?

For more information on this terrier, call the AHS at 973-824-7080 and refer to File 134997 or e-mail us.
