Police in Willoughby, Ohio, are hoping to find the heartless person who abandoned an ailing dog in the woods with a crate and old pillow. The authorities reached out to the public about the disturbing situation on Friday:
On Tuesday December 4, Willoughby Police officers were dispatched to the area of St. Clair Extension, east of Erie Road for a dog running loose. Officers found a friendly, but afraid pit bull mix running around loose in the wooded area.
According to the police, the dog appeared to have been abandoned for days in nearly freezing weather.
Officials were finally able to capture the frightened dog and she was taken to the Lake County Dog Shelter for care. She has been given a name (Lucy) and she is finally safe and warm.
The Lake County Dog Shelter is seeking information:
ID 2952 – Female Am Bulldog found with her crate on St Clair in Willoughby on 12/6/18. If you know anything about this dog or her owners please contact Deputy Brewster at 440-350-2640
This dog is in a quiet area of our shelter and can not be viewed by the public at this time.
If you would like to help donate funds for Lucy’s veterinary care you can submit them directly to the shelter:
Please send donations to the Lake County Dog Shelter, 2600 North Ridge Road, Painesville, OH 44077.
