Fluffy - Brutally Kicked by Local Youths

The sheer number of dogs and cats that arrive at the AHS Newark shelter that are abused and injured by irresponsible, sadistic people have made us redouble our efforts to help the helpless.

A Newark resident brought in a cat that she said she found in her backyard. She related a story to AHS staffers that she saw youths kick the cat. It was sometime later that she found the male cat in her backyard and brought it to a veterinarian who said the cat is in pain and needs surgery for $5,000. She could not afford it and brought the cat to our Newark shelter where a diagnostic veterinary exam was done.

It is theorized that the force of the kick was so severe that the organs in the lower extremity and the intestines had been thrust to the upper part of the torso and was obstructing the lungs. A diaphragmatic hernia was diagnosed and "Fluffy" needed specialized surgery. Throughout the pain-filled discomfort, Fluffy has remained calm, sweet and affectionate.

He was given pain medication and then sent to the Animal Emergency and Referral Service in Fairfield for specialized surgery at the cost originally quoted to the resident.

Needless to say, the costs that are borne by AHS are constantly used up and donations are always needed for our Res-Q Fund. We are always in dire need of such donations as the harrowing and heartbreaking task of trying to make a difference in their lives is of paramount importance.

For more information on a wonderfully affectionate cat who was brutally treated because of his search for love, call 973-824-7080 and refer to File 135508 or e-mail us.
