Lucy - Found in Abandoned Building, Horribly Attacked

Many of the unoccupied, abandoned houses that line the streets of Newark are home to the victims of breeding, baiting, dogfighting, cruelty, cockfighting, pet theft and more. What is even more ironic is that some of the people involved in these cruelties will contact the Associated Humane Societies to obtain return of these dogs.

The latest victim that was taken from an abandoned home where a hateful, detestable owner left a dog to die after it had been involved in a dogfight. The Newark Police called the Associated Humane Societies at 4 a.m. to retrieve the injured dog. The female pit bull was immediately brought to the Animal Emergency & Referral Associates (AERA) in Fairfield for immediate treatment. What appeared to be superficial wound and bite care became more than that. According to the veterinary staff, extensive work needed to be done with wound/pain management and necrotic tissue.

The veterinary staff at AERA have called her Lucy and although she was frightened when she arrived, she has calmed down and is friendly with the staff. A lifetime of love is what Lucy needs after what she has been through. It is not known if she once had a home where she was given away or if she was stolen or lost.

Lucy is still under medical care thanks to our Res-Q Fund which remains in need of more donations for Lucy and those that come in our doors on a daily basis.

We cannot overemphasize the hazards that dogs face when they are taken into abandoned houses to be used and abused without any one witnessing such torment.

** If you believe there is illegal activity going on in abandoned houses, please call your local police department. If you see something, say something! **
