Senior dog found in garbage can

Tragic end for dog thrown into garbage can

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).

    Rest in peace sweet pup, you didn’t deserve to be thrown away like this, you were loved by many in the end and will be missed.

    Vet care in DC is expensive. That being said, there are PLENTY of places this POS could have taken their dog for a peaceful, humane end if needed. I hope when this piece of excrement is found, justice is administered, but I doubt it will be because there is no proper punishment for something this heinous.

    I hope the POS who threw this sweet dog away has a horrible life. The ONLY positive is that the dog’s suffering was ended humanely and she didn’t die in the trash can. She still suffered too much.
