Earlier this week, police officers responding to a call about potential animal cruelty discovered three dogs abandoned at a house where a family had evacuated before Hurricane Florence hit. According to WMBF News, two dogs were discovered locked in a wire kennel and another dog was inside of a trailer on the 1200 block of Clark Street in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
No provisions, simply abandoned
The dogs found at the residence were not left with any provisions – they appeared to have been simply abandoned. The dogs in the chain link kennel were not left with food or water. The authorities were able to determine that the family who evacuated did not plan to return to their home until Sunday.
The dogs’ fate
The three dogs discovered at the evacuated residence were seized by animal control on Tuesday – as directed by the police, they are to be held for a criminal investigation.
