The AHS Newark shelter received a call from a Union County veterinary hospital to pick up an untreated pup that was brought to their facility by a good samaritan after it had been thrown out of a moving car.
Although the AHS does not service the area, an ACO was sent to rescue the pup as a compassionate gesture and to care for it.
The pup had an injury to the back leg which was lame, swollen and painful. The ACO immediately delivered the pup to the Animal Emergency and Referral Associates in Fairfield. They found that there was a fracture which required necessary pinning and repair. Thanks to our Res-Q Fund, it enabled us to help Fortune as it does many of the other sick and injured orphans that come through our doors. Please make a donation to the Res-Q Fund and help with Fortune's medical bills and his recovery.
