A reward is being offered after a dozen dogs, including puppies, were found abandoned on a road in Logan County, Oklahoma. The day after families wrapped up their Thanksgiving festivities, neglected dogs were found roaming on Backhaus Road.
According to the Logan County Sheriff’s Office, the dogs were missing hair, covered in fleas and it was apparent that they were in need of veterinary evaluation. According to a press release, rescuers from Friends of Guthrie Animals were on site working to capture the abandoned dogs and pups.
The Sheriff’s Office wrote:
It is quite obvious that these dogs were dumped and left on the side of the road to fend for themselves. We don’t know how long they have been out there or what kind of condition these dogs were in prior to being left, but we want to find out. We want to find the person who did this and get answers.
Von Coburn and Friends of Guthrie Animals are offering a $1000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the individual(s) responsible for dumping these dogs. They have also taken in the dogs to their program and are over seeing their care and potential adoptions.
If you have any information about this case please call Lt. Brown at 405-260-3205 (Incident Report 2017-1661).
