Endora Rescued after Shooting in Narcotics Investigation

The sad fact is that many of the dogs that enter the doors of the Associated Humane Societies are either abused, victimized or exploited.

When the Essex County Sheriff's Office, Detectives from the Bureau of Narcotics, and Irvington Police held a plainclothes surveillance of a Clifton Ave. basement for narcotics operation, in the midst of detaining the perpetrators, the task force officers entered the apartment where two pit bulls ran into the backyard. For the safety of the officers, two pit bulls were injured in the shooting melee and one pit bull was fatally shot.

When the Associated Humane Societies Animal Control Officer retrieved the pit bulls, one pit bull was so badly injured, he was euthanized. The surviving pit bull is a young female we have named Endora due to the pain and suffering she has endured. She was sent for immediate medical care to the Animal Emergency and Referral Associates in Fairfield for urgent care.

Thanks for your donations to our Res-Q Fund -- contributions are quickly used with the sickness, injury and trauma of animals that need that extra care and attention.

Endora is now back at AHS Newark Medical Dept. for continued veterinary care. Sadly, these pit bulls were only doing what they instinctively carried out in the loyalty, devotion and protection in watching over their family.

And if you are looking for loyalty, devotion and protection all wrapped up in slobbery kisses, leg-leaning, and a watchful eye to anticipate your moves, come and meet a Valentine selection of pit bulls that won't disappoint you!

The Associated Humane Societies is open 7 days a week for your convenience. Please come in and visit between 12 and 4. For more information on Endora, call 973-824-7080 or e-mail us.
