An elderly Shih Tzu was abandoned outside of the Calgary Humane Society on Wednesday night. And if that wasn’t tragic enough to leave a defenseless dog all alone tethered to a pole, the “cowardly person” walked away from the ailing dog during a pouring rain storm.

According to the organization’s press release, surveillance footage, which was not clear enough to identify the culprit, the dog not only suffered from a large open mass on his hind leg, he also had been in end stage renal failure. Sadly, the dog was in severe pain and veterinarians decided to humanely euthanize the dog.

The Calgary Humane Society is asking for the public’s help. Brad Nichols, Senior Manager of Animal Cruelty Investigations stated:

“This was a truly cowardly act. To abandon an animal in inclement weather rather than fulfil his/her legally obligatory animal care duties is an act that will not be tolerated in Calgary. We hope public tips will point us in the right direction so we can hold the offender accountable.”

Watch the YouTube video and if you recognize the dog or the person abandoning the dog, contact Calgary Humane Society at 403-205-4455 or www.calgaryhumane.ca/cruelty

Rest in peace little one. We are so sorry you were abandoned in the time of your greatest needs. We hope you find justice.

    I really hope that this scumbag’s family does the same thing to him or her. I also hope that the end of this monstrous creature is as painful as possible.

    Post this on Calgary TV – someone KNOWS who this maggot is and will hopefully do the right thing. This bastard needs to be caught, hogtied and dumped in the nearest landfill with the rest of the trash.

    RIP sweet dog. To think that your last moments were spent suffering makes me sick. You should have been safe and in the arms of the family that you loved – even if they no longer loved you.
