Patrick the Miracle Dog’s Abuser Sentenced, Patrick Finds Forever Home

Kisha Curtis, 29, pleaded guilty last month to fourth-degree animal cruelty on the eve of her trial. She was charged in March 2011 after Patrick the Miracle Dog was found near death.

Although she won’t be serving any jail time, Curtis would be required to serve 18 months probation and forfeit her right to Patrick, who has not been in her care since he was found.

She’ll also be required to pay nearly $2,000 to the New Jersey ASPCA, which gave the pup emergency care before he was moved to a veterinary hospital in Tinton Falls.

On a happier note, NJSPCA posted the following on their Facebook page:

“Patrick Court Update : Will post information later BUT I would like everyone to know that Patrick is now PATRICK SCAVELLI, it is official the Scavelli’s were granted legal custody of Patrick. NJSPCA could not be happier with the outcome for Patrick and the Scavelli’s. Thank you all for your support. Capt Yocum”

Congratulations Patrick! May you be happy in your new forever home!
