Brenda - Injured Kitten Saved

The AHS Newark facility received an emergency call on Saturday, Sept 30th regarding an injured kitten on North 5th Street in Newark.

Upon intake, it was discovered that the front left limb was wrapped in a veterinary wrap and the paw was severely swollen as well as the shoulder area. The bandage was wrapped tightly, cutting off blood supply. While unwrapping the bandage, puss and blood started to pool down. Sadly, the wrapped limb was dead - no blood supply was circulating. Also the shoulder had an opened wound that went deep into the arm. The gums were white and required immediate attention. Since AHS didn't have a veterinarian on duty that Saturday, the kitten was sent to Animal Emergency and Referral Agency (AERA) in Fairfield.

The veterinary staff worked on the very young kitten until it was stabilized. The kitten was then transferred to the AHS shelter in Tinton Falls where Dr. Emily Marion amputated the leg. Her tender age, her poor condition created some difficulty while she was under anesthesia.

Unfortunately, financial consideration is an important part of an adoption. We do not know how the injury occurred but emergencies arise and the lack of proper care jeopardized this kitten's life. For more information call AHS-Tinton Falls at 732-922-0100 or you can email us and refer to ID#25551

We hope to begin the search for a new home for Brenda once she is spayed. While we are treating her medical conditions, if you would like to help with the care of Brenda, please text ResQ to 501501 to make a $10.00 donation or your can click here to donate to our ResQ Fund.
