Patrick was once a starved and abused pit bull. When his weakened and starved body gave out, he was put in a garbage bag and thrown down 19 flights to the garbage dump. Lucky for Patrick, the building maintenance person who found him perceived a slight movement inside the garbage bag. He went to investigate and was horrified to see a starved dog that seemed to be lifeless, but for his eyes. It was in this moribund dog’s eyes that the maintenance person saw that there was a bit of life pleading for mercy. So, he called the proper authorities to save him. Patrick was sent to Garden State Veterinary Services (GSVS), a 24-hour veterinary hospital and teaching school equipped in providing the proper care needed to bring this beautiful young pit bull puppy to back to a healthy life. Throughout his hospital stay, Patrick’s expressive eyes captivated the world. The world fell in love with him, and everybody wanted to adopt him.

Under GSVS’s care, Patrick flourished and fell in love. He fell in love with his caretakers and they fell in love with him. The public witnessed the love blossoming. There was no doubt that Patrick and Dr. and Mrs. Scavelli (the owners of GSVS) had found each other. When Patrick was ready to be discharged from the hospital, he went to live with the Scavellis. With the Scavellis, besides gaining his proper weight, Patrick learned to love and trust, not only human beings but another canine companion. At this point, to take Patrick away from the loving home he found is to once again abuse him. It would be abusing his heart, his trust, and his well-being. So, we, the undersigned, do hereby request that Superior Court NJ. Essex County and AHS consider letting Patrick live with the only family he knows and that loves him back.

      There has to be an end put to animal abuse. It should be a felony.

      There is no question that Patrick must remain in the care of Dr. & Mrs. Scavelli, who nursed him back from the brink of death. He is a member of a loving and caring family. Anyone who attempts to exploit his suffering and journey back to recovery must be forced to cease and desist. Taking Patrick away from his family is in itself an act of extreme cruelty that goes against every principle of responsible and caring animal rescue. This shameless act of exploitation to promote the AHS "Brand" must be recognized for what it is and denied by the New Jersey Court of Custody. All Animal Rescuers are standing together on this. Please let humanity and decency prevail.

      I am a Pit lover and Pits do not deserve to be locked up in a cage or treated as property for a money source. Patrick deserves to be loved and cared for!
