Silk - Homeless Due to Domestic Violence Situation

Each unwanted animal that arrives at AHS has a sad story of abuse and/or rejection that causes pangs of distress to their already broken hearts.

The AHS Animal Control Officer was dispatched to pick up a dog which was a victim involving domestic violence and child protection agencies. The dog was released due to possible legal troubles that needed to be satisfied.

A beautifully magnificent 2 year old Mastiff named Silk was victimized in rough and abusive mishandling to "train" the dog. Upon arrival, he was depressed at being without the family he had known but a more kind, patient approach was the order of the day. Our evaluator found Silk calm, sweet, gentle and a joy to walk. He did well on his food test and although he wasn't interested in toys, he did take a rawhide and released it gently.

The well behaved boy is one of many victims of domestic violence that arrive at AHS. It is our belief that there are strays that arrive that were casualties of similar situations but it is difficult to document.

For more information on Silk, call 973-824-7080 and refer to 15711 or e-mail us.

The Associated Humane Societies is located at 124 Evergreen Ave. in Newark, convenient to Route 1 & 9, near the Newark International Airport and 3 blocks from the Elizabeth line. AHS is open 7 days a week.

Your donation will help us in our vigorous adoption program and to help these orphans -- many of whom need additional time, training, neutering and care before being placed for adoption.
