In Tuscon, an animal cruelty investigation has been opened after a dead dog was found on Friday lying across an old recliner at the curb. When a call came into the Pima Animal Care Center, officers were dispatched to 8800 E. Broadway Boulevard.

According to NewsKgun9, Animal Control was notified after a viewer of the news station sent a message asking for help:dog-left-on-chair-dead-2

“I was on my way to the McDonald’s and stopped when I saw a dog laying in a recliner set out for donation. I thought it was a stuffed dog, a toy. I got closer and noticed its mouth was gagged shut with a sock and there was blood soaked on the sock. A few other people stopped too and one of them called 911, but they transferred her to animal control. She had to leave but I got her name and number. The animal control came at the same time as the donation collection truck. Animal control checked for a chip and the dog did have one. They said they will investigate the owner. No report was filed. None of our contact info was collected. They just put the dog in a black trash bag. So I decided to call KGUN9.

Authorities  are treating his death as a matter of animal cruelty and on their website cited the following information:

“We’re actively working with TPD to bring justice to this poor dog,” said José Ocaño, PACC’s director of operations. “This cruelty case is devastating to our community and we won’t rest until justice is served.”

On the organization’s Facebook page, authorities acknowledge the heartbreaking photos and is asking the community for help:

“You may have heard about the badly abused dog who was found deceased this morning. We know this story and images are heartbreaking to you, as they are for us. We are working in full cooperation with Tucson Police Department to find justice for him. This is an active investigation, and we will update you as we can.”

If you have any tips or information regarding this dog’s death, please contact the 88-CRIME hotline at 520-882-7463.

Rest in peace sweet dog. We are sorry humans failed you.

      i was told once they cremate dead animals then i found out they simply throw them in landfills with all the other trash, If your pet dies try to bury it yourself

    Ok, tucson, anyone know this dog? Do you know who owner him? What a sick person who did this. I hope they lock you up and never let you out. If you do that to a poor dog you will do it to a child . You need to be lock up.

    Quand ses sous merde seront retrouvės, j’espère que la justice les condamnera le plus sévèrement possible. Ils ne méritent pas d’exister. Bande de lâche, que votre vie devienne un enfer jusqu’à la fin.

    SMH……. what is wrong with people???
    There is NO reason to abuse or abandon an animal…….. This is outrageous and disgusting…… I can’t understand WHY this furbaby was so badly treated…….

    If you didn’t want a pet or the challenge of rehoming an unwanted pet yourself, then please take the animal to a shelter (preferably a “no-kill” shelter)…… where the animal will have a chance to find a home where s/he IS wanted & treasured as a family member……….

    OK Tuscon, AZ – this dog had a chip so the owner information is available – No information was collected from the good people who found the dog – he was stuffed in a trash bag – no report was filed – Thank God one of these kind people was smart enough to contact KGUN9 – and hopefully this will force this disgusting case of animal cruelty to be investigated and the guilty party arrested.
