It was a deliberate act to seal the fate of an unwanted dog ….
The abandoned house was boarded up but a mean-spirited person who was intent on getting rid of this dog gained access into the house. They left the dog inside to languish until it starved to death.
Late one night, a neighbor heard a dog barking inside the house & called Newark Police. After the police were able to get inside the darkened building, they found an emaciated dog. The sweet male pit was overwhelmed to see a concerned face. The police called AHS & Tom Circle, the Animal Control Officer, was dispatched to the scene. He took possession of the skeletal dog. Sadly, he discovered a dead dog that had been previously dumped there.
The ACO immediately brought the young male pit bull to Animal Emergency & Referral Agency (AERA) in Fairfield where he was found to have an extremely low temperature. They administered medical care during the night and by morning, he was bright, alert & responsive!
Tom, our ACO, has named the very sweet, mild-mannered fella "Max". He is now at the AHS shelter in Newark where we are giving care, warmth & nourishment. He doesn't appreciate other animals, but he is deserving of "a new leash on life" and that there are humans who are about his well being.
Our Res-Q Fund is constantly used up and donations are always needed and welcomed. Please make a donation to our Res-Q Fund or text HumaneHelp to 41444.
