It was a cold, rainy bone-chilling night when ACO Tom Circle was alerted to a pathetic, badly matted dog found on the streets of Newark.
Upon closer scrutiny, there was an obvious injury to a rear leg and so the stray Shi Tzu was brought to the Animal Emergency & Referral Associated (AERA) in Fairfield. The veterinary staff had to shave down the knotted mats to ascertain the damage done. According to the vets at AERA, they advised that the leg had become necrotic and required amputation. The wounds were extremely painful and the Shi Tzu has been given an analgesic to relieve his pain.
"Buzz" has been brought to our veterinary staff in Forked River for care and treatment. Athough we have been criticized for undertaking the additional costs of caring for many of the sick, injured and abused animals that come through our doors, IMAGINE LIFE WITHOUT A SECOND CHANCE???? We at AHS give them that second chance. We need your help and donations for Buzz and the many animals that require the costly care that is needed. Please donate to our Res-Q Fund so that Buzz and other victims of stray dogs that enter our world will get another chance.
For more information, call 609-693-1900 and refer to Buzz or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org . We will update you after he has been given all care and is ready for a new home.
