AHS was contacted by the Irvington Police in regard to a domestic violence situation which involved an animal.
When AHS Animal Control Officer arrived, the Police was in discussions with the owner. It is alleged that he brought the dog to his girlfriend's apartment and he stayed out all night & didn't come home until 7 a.m. In her anger, she spitefully threw the pup out of the 3rd floor window onto a concrete sidewalk.
The girlfriend refused to answer the door and the matter was reported to the spca.
The pit pup has been brought to the AHS Medical Dept. where a complete work up has started. There is an injury to the neck, possible inflammation to the spine, internal parasites and has an upper respiratory ailment and some scrapes and scratches.
The little girl was called Delilah and will be available for adoption after the veterinary staff believes that she will be ready.
