Grant: Matted, abused and thrown from a car!

Grant: Matted, abused and thrown from a car!

 

SAD UPDATE: It is with the heaviest of hearts that we bring you this very sad news. 

Our sweet Grant passed away early this morning from multiple complications of severe starvation and neglect. 

This is despite the best efforts of the RBARI and Oradell teams to save his life. This dog was a fighter to the very end - but ultimately, the consequences of the brutal abuse and suspected chronic neglect he suffered was too much for his little body to overcome. 

His case is under active investigation and will be pursued to the fullest extent of existing laws. If you see animal abuse or neglect, speak up and contact the authorities: you may well save a life and prevent needless suffering. 

Our most heartfelt thanks go out to officer John DeCando of Paterson Animal Control for reaching out to us immediately when he was alerted to Grant being thrown from the car, the bystander who chose not to turn her head on a crime against an innocent dog..the staff of Oradell Animal Hospital for their love and care ...and the reporters and news organizations that spread Grant's story. 

Last but certainly not least to you all...our extended RBARI family for opening your hearts and for the support you have so generously showered on our dear Grant. 

Our fight for Grant and his memory is not over. We will keep you all updated on any and all developments in our efforts to make sure that justice is served. 

Our hearts are collectively broken. Thank you so much for caring. ❤️

Rest In Peace our sweet boy. We will never forget you.


A car slowed down and tossed out a tiny bundle of fur, then sped off without a look back. It was hard to tell what was beneath the matts, urine soaked fur and filth. Wrapped like a mummy in matts, this tiny creature struggled to get up, but was unable to walk. Bystanders called Animal Control. 

RBAR got the call for immediate urgent rescue help. This emaciated, set shih tzu was barely recognizable under a coating of thick, filthy fur. He had matts at least 3 inches deep over his eyes, and the smell of urine and feces was overwhelming. Weighing in at 6 pounds, he should have been 20 at a healthy weight.  He was weak and pale with horrible dental disease, yet all he wanted to do was find comfort through human touch.  

All you could see was his nose and tongue through the matts, and as he heard a kind voice, an amazing thing happened. This sweet little creature moved towards us and gave kisses. He was stumbling over from the weight of his matts and weakness of his body, yet he yearned to love and be loved. 

Rescuers immediately rushed Grant to Oradell Animal Hospital, as he was in distress and so weak. His red blood cell count was low, and it dipped down even further in the first hours of his hospitalization. Blood was found in his feces. Grant was put in an IV and given a blood transfusion to stabilize him. 

Grant remains loving - his faith in people remains steady as ours diminishes. Help Grant learn about human kindness, and please help us give Grant the life that he deserves.
