CATSKILL – Animal abuse investigators in Greene County want to know who abandoned an injured puppy in Catskill.
The puppy was found Aug. 24 in a parking lot with serious wounds that appeared to be inflicted by another dog.
The young dog was rushed to Chathams Small Animal Hospital where it was placed in intensive care for more than week.
“The puppy was a victim of a heinous dog attack, and the owner apparently didn’t want to pay for medical care,” said Ron Perez, the president and an investigator with the Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA.
Anyone with information about the puppy is encouraged to call the SPCA’s Animal Cruelty Investigation Unit at 518-828-6044. They say the owner will likely face charges.
The puppy is expected to make a full recovery.
