To Patrick with Love and Hope for the future! Animal Cruelty at its worst

Patrick today March 21st


March 21, 2011
This blog is dedicated to Patrick a dog who was discarded by his owner aka scum bag, worst human ever who purposefully starved the dog near death and put his near lifeless body in a garbage bag and threw it down 22 stories through the garbage shut.  He surely has endured the most painful suffering that any soul could ever imagine—he was starved by his owner with the intent of killing the dog by starvation.  This has got to be the worst story of animal cruelty that I have ever come across.  To subject your dog to a slow and painful death by starvation is senseless beyond words and deserves the most severe punishment—should this worthless excuse for a human be caught!   I can only imagine that this dog was starved for a period of a couple of months or so.  I am sure “the owner” must have stuffed his face in front of the poor dog who had to watch him eat.  The poor did not get any food (not to mention love), but probably also had to see and smell food being cooked and eaten in front of him.  Dogs have thoughts and feelings too, so this must have been pure torture for him.  I supposed when the so called owner finally thought the dog had endured enough starvation and was close to death, he put the dog (slightly more than skin and bones) in bag and sent it down his garbage shoot to be picked up b the trash collector.   

Thank goodness Patrick did not give up and still had enough life in him that he made enough noise that caught the trash collector’s attention.  His life was not meant to end under such horrid conditions.  He still has his life to live and love to give to his savior who ends up adopted him when his is better.  Fortunately for Patrick his darkest days are now over as he is now receiving the finest medical care and has the love and support of thousands of well wishers and Rescue Organizations that want to help him.  May each day that passes make Patrick stronger as he gains his health bag.  Patrick’s pain and suffering is over now and hopefully soon he will find true happiness in his new “Furever” home.   
This is an actual story that happened in New Jersey.  The depths to which human depravity can sink, as illustrated by this story of the most gut wrenching pictures can shock even those of us who have seen the worst of the worst.  The misery, pain and callousness inflicted by humans is more than can be understood by most people. It's accepted that many people do not like animals or dogs or pit bulls in particular. However, the heartless manner in which a dying animal is tossed away like garbage is not only reprehensible but the increase that we have seen indicates a downward spiral of compassion, moral fiber and ethics.  The 22 story apartment building is equipped with garbage chutes on each floor for tenants. Someone had no more use for this dog. They had starved it to near death, put it in a garbage bag and threw it down the garbage chute. A maintenance worker cleans out the bin every few days and on Wednesday, March 16th, they were cleaning out the contents of the container to go directly into a trash compacter. The bag moved a little and the worker opened it to find a moribund dog inside -- pathetically thin, cold and near death.
The City of Newark Animal Control was contacted and ACO Arthur Skinner picked up the dog and brought him directly to the Society. The veterinary staff immediately put him on intravenous fluid.  His temperature was so low that it did not even register on the thermometer. He was covered with heating pads and blankets. Society vet tech Gina DeSalvo held the pit bull in her arms -- she soothed him, gave him warmth, comfort and bits of food. From that moment on, he looked up with gratitude in his eyes to all of the staff after a brief time at the Society's Newark facility; he was ambulanced to Garden State Veterinary Specialists in Tinton Falls -- a referral hospital with 24 hour emergency care. If he died during that night, we feel he would know that everyone loved and cared about him and treated him gently and lovingly. He amazed everyone at the Society and at Garden State by surviving with the 24 hour emergency care that they rendered. He was given a blood transfusion, a bath -- and even a walk! In honor of the first day of his re-birth, we call him Patrick -- in honor of St. Patrick's Day and we hope he has the luck of the Irish!
Today, Patrick continues to his recovery and is fighting to get stronger each day and hanging in there.  When he was first brought into the emergency center he laid there pretty much lifeless.  The staff began feeding him small amounts of food throughout the day and IV treatments.  His liver and kidneys tested okay and his blood volume is improving.  He is now able to sit up and walk with assistance.
