3/25/2011 - Patrick Becoming More Responsive

The emaciated pit bull Patrick, thrown out as garbage, continues his long road to recovery at the Garden State Veterinary Specialists (GSVS). Thrown down a garbage chute at a 22 story apartment building -- he was minutes away from being horribly crushed by a trash compactor. Patrick's story has gone all over the world! Phone calls and donations are coming in from Australia, Italy, Greece, France, United Kingdom and more. The outpouring of sympathy has been overwhelming and heartwarming and is much appreciated.

"Patrick: I starved, I was injured. I had five different parasites and an obstruction. I was HW positive and almost died from the treatment. I didn't know what a toy was or the inside of a home. I still remember my past; I am trying hard to forget it. Often now I do forget. I am Little Red!"

These words were scripted on a picture e-mailed to the Associated Humane Societies. They requested that the picture be hung in Patrick's cage as hope and inspiration that he will pull through.

Although Patrick does not go in his cage, he has just started letting the GSVS staff know when he is ready for his bathroom break. He is very responsive and affectionate.

The NJ SPCA is investigating the incident (1-800-582-5979).

According to GSVS, they may sedate him next week to see what foreign body he has swallowed. Once that physical problem has been solved, they will be increasing his food intake ..... and he is quite anxious for that! If you would like to donate to the Res-Q Fund, this is a dedicated fund for animals that come in that require intensive care, specialized veterinary surgery and more.

We are going to give Patrick a brief break over the next day or two. We will monitor the situation and we thank all of you for your generosity and concern.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
