It was nearing midnight when the AHS Animal Control Officer Shannon Krand was dispatched to pick up an injured cat in Newark.
When she arrived, she spotted a Siamese cat laying on the ground and as she approached, the frightened feline went under a car and hid near the tire. When she finally coaxed the cat into her arms, she saw that there were injuries to the legs. A near-by resident advised that they witnessed the cat being thrown from the 10th floor of the building.
Shannon immediately transferred the Siamese cat to the Animal Emergency and Referral Agency who have took x-rays, gave full exam and found a minor wound on rear leg and may have a fractured rib which will heal on its own. The very calm Siamese is on pain medication. Thanks to your donations to the Res-Q Fund, it helps us to help the injured animals that come through our doors.
In honor of the ACO who rescued her, we call the Siamese "Shannon".
The matter is presently under investigation.
