March 16, 2011 (first photo): An emaciated Pitbull-mix is discovered in a garbage bag by maintenance workers at the bottom of a 19-story tall garbage chute. The dog is immobile, but ALIVE. This is how he looked on arrival that Newark’s animal shelter that night.
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.
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!

March 17, 2011 (second photo): Once stabilized, he’s moved to GSVS Pet Hospital for continuous intensive care. It is now St. Patrick’s Day, and the GSVS staff decide to call him Patrick.

March 22, 2011 (third photo): Bright lights still hurt his eyes.

Late April 2011, Easter (fourth photo): Six weeks into recovery.

Late October 2011 (fifth photo): 7 months into recovery.

December 25, 2011, Christmas (sixth photo): 9 months into recovery.

The last photo is one of his most recent photos. He’s fully recovered and living with an amazing family.

Patrick. You survivor. You good dog. You precious bby.

How anyone could harm an innocent, beautiful animal is beyond me. This poor little soul; I’m so glad to see him comfortable and safe. He above all others deserve love and safety. Whom ever did this unspeakable act to him should be found and beaten until the edge of their life so they can know what it feels like to be cast away like garbage.

I wish I could hug this cutie. But instead I’ll hug my cat Pippin just a little closer.

    NO animal should have to go through pain. They are not our toys to be thrown away when we’ve used them up. Keep doing...
