Bi-atch got’s some brass ones! Here’s what she did on her night of freedom, did she go see Patrick, Nope! Crazy went out to dinner!

Update 3/26: 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.

Update 3/24 He is still pathetically thin. Staffers had previously given a second blood transfusion to help him. The Associated Humane Societies is paying for the miraculous
recovery of this neglected and abused dog. We knew it would be a long, arduous, and expensive effort.
Through an ultrasound, a foreign body was found inside of Patrick. He may have swallowed something to quell the hunger that he experienced. Presently, he is too weak, but as he gets stronger, they will explore this problem. It has not prevented his eating, drinking or defecating.
We are receiving pictures and messages from other animals asking to keep strong …. keep going. Life is precious!The Associated Humane Societies has set up a Reward Fund and is now offering a $2,500 reward for the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator. There is probably more in the fund but the figures are not available yet.
Patrick’s story has inspired people from all over the world to donate towards his care. The building in which Patrick was rescued is 22 stories high and has 550 apartments. Some leads have come in and have been referred to the NJ SPCA for investigation. All calls concerning the perpetrator will be held in strict confidence.

Update 3/24 This email was just sent to me:This message is from Pat Scavelli at Garden State Veterinary Specialists. Our hospital and Patrick have been overwhelmed by the
response of the public to Patrick’s plight. We appreciate everything you have done to get the message out. At this point Patrick’s care has been provided for and we would appreciate it if you would remove our direct phone number from your site. The number of calls we are receiving is making it difficult for us to properly assist our other patients and clients. I would encourage people to support their local associations in Patrick’s honor. Thank you again for helping Patrick in this way. We have created our own Facebook page so that we can continue to keep his supporters updated on his condition and his ultimate placement in a forever home. Patrick is eternally grateful for your help as are we!

Update 3/23 We have hit a bump in the road 😦 An x-ray showed some sort of foreign body. It could be a sock or part of a blanket. It’s not uncommon to find something like this in dogs that are starved. Patrick was so hungry he might have eaten anything to fi…ll his stomach,” said Sanchez.

Update 3/22 Patrick is starting to walk more, wants to eat more and he is WAGGING HIS TAIL NOW!! This is great news!

Update 3/22 The Society is offering a $2,000.00 reward for information leading to the arrest and capture of the perpetrator(s). If you would like to contribute towards the reward fund, please indicate this specifically in Instructions when you make your donation. Go to ahscares.org, scroll down to Patrick’s story and at the end click on “more” for info on how to donate.

Update 3/21 Patrick is doing better and gaining strength everyday. I talked to the ER nurse today and she said he is very strong and hanging in there. I was also contacted by a reporter for The Star-Ledger and she asked me to email her pictures of Patrick and they are going to do a write-up of the little man and hopefully someone will come forward to catch the SOB!! This is good news!

Update 3/20 Patrick is off IV for now and taking medications orally. He is watched for any changes constantly. His blood tests are showing improvement in volume. Can stand a little, but not yet ambulatory. He is being fed small amounts every few hours to limit nausea. His kidneys and liver seem to be ok. He is also being treated for bedsores. This morning he was taken off IV, and there is improvements in his blood volume.

Update: 3/20 The ER nurse stated Patrick tried standing on his own and that he is doing good but has a long recovery ahead of him. I will post updates as I get them or if any of you have updates please feel free to share and post. To clarify I did not rescue Patrick and have had no hand in his care, I got ahold of his story and posted it and had no clue that it would turn into this meaning in such a positive way with all the donations and well wishes for Patrick. I have created a petition for him getting the justice he deserves and the vile piece of shit that did this to him to pay. http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/patrick-starved-dog-thrown-down-garbage-chute/

Garden State Veterinary say this boy is doing great so far! he is their favorite patient!

The depths to which human depravity can sink, as illustrated by this story and 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 compactor. The bag moved a little and the worker opened it to find a moribund dog inside — pathetically thin, cold and near death.
he 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 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!.

 
So while this cow eats dinner, on her first night of freedom, Patrick still fights to hold onto life! NICE!
Speak up for Patrick!!!!!!!!

About apitome

I am a mother, a pit bull advocate, but mostly I am just like any of you, I am passionate about politics, the environment and dog advocacy. I want possitive changes within the judicial system as well. I want my children to grow up in a country where we are not told what breed of dog we can own. I want to see BSL put in the trash where it belongs! I want to see the constitution protected but not manipulated *see anything on the mosque near ground zero (USA) or changing Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays (Canada)* I am not racist in any way shape or form against any ethnic group, I do however have prejudices against bad behavior! If you abuse our laws, kids, the elderly, or animals, If you move to a new country and then demand that country to change everything about it's laws & way of life to suit your own agenda, If you blatantly break those laws with no regard and show no repect for them, if you engage in dog fighting or any other forms of animal abuse, torture or neglect, or if you are a pedophile, Than yes! You are on my radar for sure, and I will do EVERYTHING within my power to see you stopped and brought to justice! Furthering that goal, I have no qualms about publishing the names and faces of convicted abusers. I am not trying to change the world, I simply want to see things improve not backslide, Mostly for my children and these wonderful dogs futures! I may say things you agree with, and I may say things that you won't agree with, I may anger you, challenge you, or just plain piss you off, but in my book that's ok as long as long as it inspires some form of action on your part. This is not a popularity contest, If I have said anything about a group or person that you don't agree with please feel free to leave a comment or simply don't come back. If You have been mentioned in my blog it is for one of two reasons, you are either an advocate or you are an abuser loser, if you are the latter I could care less what you think! I value the opinions of trash about as much as I do that of a slug! Everything in print here is a matter of public record, or came from a trusted source, with that said, I am certainly willing to print both sides of any story, in an effort to be fair and always print the truth!
