Sweet Patrick is finally ‘home’! His living status has been up in the air for quite some time. He has been fostered by the Scavelli’s since he was able to leave their clinic, Garden State Vetrinary Specialists. The Scavelli’s wanted to adopt him from the get go, but The American Humane Society and Popcorn Park were fighting the adoption as they claimed he was their property!! SMH Sad, sad, sad…
The awesome news… It has all finally been settled and Patrick is now in his furever home with the Scavelli Family!!! WOO HOO, it’s about time!!
CONGRATULATIONS to Patrick and his family the Scavellis!!
I remember when I saw the first picture of Patrick, I knew this poor soul was gone. When I finally got up the courage to look, to my happy surprise, he was alive… barely. AHS had him for the first day to stabilize him then he was of to Garden State Veterinary Hospital, where the miraculous recovery truly began.
The monster, Keisha Curtis, who did this to him, we pray will pay for her heinous abuse and torture to Patrick.
To All: In answer to the questions of the Plea Agreement, that Plea was rejected by the Defense Attorney representing Kisha Curtis. The Plea Agreement included 18 months in jail, $5000.00 in fines and an animal ban on the defendent. Again this is not unusual and moving forward we are confident that this case was handled properly by NJSPCA and that our case is strong and solid. Capt
AHS is still fighting to tear Patrick away from the only loving home he has ever known. Patrick has been with The Scavelli Family during this ordeal. He is loved for the first time in his life and they want to adopt him permanently. Yet, AHS is fighting to have him returned to their shelter/zoo. I thought shelters were supposed to want the best for the animals… guess not this one.
Please sign and share the petition below to tell the courts to let Patrick say with the Scavelli Family!
This Friday, May 6th, is the trial for Kisha Curtis. She ‘allegedly’ starved Patrick, put him in a plastic bag, and dropped him from a 19th floor garbage chute. This was to be his ‘burial’, but on this day he was saved.
We need to show our support and let our voices be heard and STOP animal cruelty.
Animal abuse is a stepping-stone away from child abuse, and abuse on any person these monsters deem weaker. It is not about the animal or the person;it is about control and power over another living being. It is time to stand together and say, “ENOUGH!”
Please help The Patrick Movement by letting your voice be heard too.
There are now many FB communities for Patrick, my new one is A Dog Named Patrick. There are three California groups now to fight for Patrick. I hope to see you become a member at any one or all three of them. What information one does not have, another may.
On our show yesterday, The Padded Room, my bff Ruby and I talked about Patrick. It got a bit emotional at times, but it is hard to keep control and emotions in tact when discussing such horrific abuse of a living creature. You can listen to the 30 minute archive by clicking on our The Padded Room link.

Starved to the point where he had no temperature then thrown down a garbage chute like yesterday’s trash, this was the life of Patrick. He is an approximately one year old Pit/Mix who was brutally mistreated by his owner.
