Who in their right mind could inflict this kind of pain and cruelty to such a tiny and innocent creature?! This is just never ending folks, and the sad stories do not stop coming in. The latest cruelty case to come in to our AHS Newark facility is this female long-haired chihuahua, that is just six months old. This sweet little puppy was found abandoned -- laying on the sidewalk on South 11th Street in Newark. AHS was contacted by Newark Police Dept. and when the Animal Control Officer arrived on the scene, it was obvious that the little pup was severely injured. She was immediately rushed to Animal Emergency & Referral Associates in Fairfield. After a thorough examination, it was discovered that this little puppy had not one, but radial fractures of both front legs.
Since there were no external wounds, she was not hit by a car. It could have been a cruel act by an adult, or being mishandled by a youngster, a fall from a sofa, etc. In any event, someone just tossed the 7 month old Chihuahua out where it was found helplessly on the sidewalk.
We are again relying heavily on our Res-Q Fund to enable us to get the medical treatment that this little angel so desperately needs. With all of the special needs cases that have been coming in to all three of our facilities in the last few weeks, our Res-Q Fund is quickly being depleted, and we need all the help we can get. If you are able to help, any size donation is greatly appreciated.
Although we do not wish to speculate just yet on how this puppy came to suffer such injuries, we feel that it is safe to say that she was NOT hit by a car. The rest of her body does not have the obvious injuries that she would have suffered if that were the case and she also would likely not have survived if she were run down, due to her size. This is likely a case of abuse, and it's also likely that the person that is responsible will never be caught, and never have to answer for the pain and suffering that this little girl is going through.
Goldie will need about 4 weeks of care before she is ready for adoption. For more information, e-mail us.
