The puppy, dubbed “Harvey,” was found by a good Samaritan at the top of the hill off Table Mountain Blvd, north of the Fish Hatchery; she had been burned and was suffering from blunt force trauma.
On Wednesday, the Northwest SPCA , which had taken Harvey under its wing, let Facebook followers know that the puppy had died. The shelter wrote, “We are immensely sad in announcing that sweet Harvey passed this morning due to complications from her injuries. The veterinary staff worked tirelessly to care for her and she fought for three weeks, but she could no longer hang on.”
The individual who inflicted the ultimately life-ending injuries to Harvey is still being sought. The shelter wrote, “We do not want Harvey to be forgotten and we don’t want her suffering and death to be in vain. We are still looking for the abuser and need your help. We see many animals that are suffering and abused and they have no voice. We have clues in this case and continue to seek information.”
According to the initial release of information about this cruel case, the person being sought is a male, in his late teens to early 20s, very slender build, about 6 feet tall with a dark complexion and dark, medium length wavy hair.”
