Carson - Starved, His System Filled with Garbage

With many of the pitiful strays that arrive through our doors, we try to piece together what a life they may have had before. "Carson" shows all of the signs of a dog who once had a home and was then abandoned and couldn't fend for himself on the streets.

The male pit bull came in during the night and was reportedly thrown out of a car although there is no evidence of trauma consistent with that report. He was severely emaciated; his hair coat and skin were in terrible condition due to a severe flea infestation. His x-rays showed a severely distended stomach and also foreign material in his colon. It was obvious he had been eating trash and then gorged himself on the kibble we gave him on the night he arrived. He became more and more debilitated due to fleas and ill effects of the garbage he was eating. He passed garbage bags, dirt, string, foreign bodies and other trash he had eaten trying to eke out survival on the streets. Donations to our Res-Q Fund give us the resources to help Carson and other such needy orphans that require intensive medical care.

He is about 6 years old with a very sweet personality who seems to be a displaced lost soul who needs some sunshine after surviving an extremely bleak existence. For more information on Carson, call 973-824-7080 and refer to File 15462 or e-mail us.

AHS is located at 124 Evergreen Ave. in Newark, just off of Rt. #1 & #9, near the NJ Turnpike and 3 blocks past the Elizabeth line. We are open 7 days a week from noon until 5 p.m. for your convenience.
