A senior dog, who was callously thrown away in a garbage can, has died. According to Thursday’s Fox 5 DC, the female Yorkshire terrier, who was found tossed away in the trash on October 20, has died.
According to Humane Rescue Alliance, the senior dog was discovered in a garbage can located in an alley located on the 4200 block of Mead Street and Lane Place NE in northeast D.C.
Tragically, though the dog was found while she was still alive, her poor health led veterinarians to make the difficult decision to end her suffering with humane euthanasia.
Humane Rescue Alliance is hoping to find whoever is responsible for this callous act of animal cruelty. The agency reached out to Facebook followers to advise of the offering of a reward:
We are offering at $2,000 reward to any person who provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for this horrific act of animal cruelty.
Anyone with information about this disturbing case of animal cruelty is asked to call the Humane Law Enforcement Department at 202-723-5730 (ext. 132).
