Over the weekend, devastating news was released about a puppy who was found wrapped in plastic and abandoned on a sidewalk in Detroit, Michigan. On Saturday morning, the Michigan Humane Society alerted Facebook followers that the shepherd mix puppy had died.
The shelter’s post read:
“It’s with a heavy heart that we must share the shepherd puppy that was picked up by the MHS rescue team yesterday did not make it through the night. Our team worked diligently to ensure he had the best possible care, and he passed away surrounded by caring staff at an emergency clinic around 4 a.m.”
“Though he was only in our care for a short time, our team is happy he was able to experience love before crossing the rainbow bridge.”
The puppy had been found by a good Samaritan on Friday and he was taken to the shelter for emergency care. After the heartbreaking discovery was made, the shelter offered a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for the cruel situation. After the puppy died, the shelter announced that the reward has been raised to $5,000, thanks to one of the shelter’s supporters.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 800-SPEAKUP.
