Blue - Hit and Run Victim with Serious Injuries

Just another day in the life of an Associated Humane Societies Animal Control Officer who found a suffering animal and, in accordance with State Regulations as all ACOs should do, chose to get medical care and treat, instead of accept defeat and euthanasia.

AHS Animal Control Officer Shannon Krand went on the call to help this severely injured female pitbull that would have died on the streets of Roselle alone if she had not gotten the help that she needed. ACO Krand brought in this poor girl at the end of her shift Saturday afternoon, and AHS Asst. Director Scott Crawford rushed the bleeding and wounded pup to Animal Emergency and Referral Associates in Fairfield. From the looks of her injuries, the treating veterinarians determined that she was likely the victim of a hit and run. She has a sprained leg and lacerations on her forehead, ribcage, and hip. Her jaw is badly broken and although it was obvious that she was in a great deal of pain, Scott tells us that she was extremely sweet and affectionate through it all. With everyone that she came in contact with, this poor, suffering pup, she just looked to them all for love, acceptance, and help. Scott was again amazed by the bravery and resilience of yet another animal that was injured at the hands of careless humans, as we all are.

This sweet girl was admitted to the hospital to receive round- the-clock care and to be kept as comfortable as possible. The goal today was to determine whether or not she would need reconstructive surgery on her jaw, after seeing if she could eat on her own. This loving little lady sure could use lots of good thoughts and your prayers too. She is quite lucky to be alive, and we are proud to be the type of organization that chooses to help an animal in need that someone has turned their back on. We are only able to help because of kind and generous people that contribute to our Res-Q Fund. Our Res-Q Fund will be depleted once again, but saving this beautiful life is worth it. Won't you please make a donation and help?
