A heartbreaking post on the Detroit Dog Rescue Facebook on Tuesday described a small, defenseless Pomeranian left out in the subfreezing weather outside of the rescue organization where it froze to death.
The surveillance cameras for the organization picked up the images of the man who abandoned the dog in a crate on Harper Avenue on Monday evening. The man could be seen walking across the street and leaving the dog. He arrived in a maroon, silver and white van. When the dog was examined, his toenails were overgrown, and he had fleas frozen to his body.
According to WxyzNews, the dog suffered terribly, and when found he was lying on a wet pillow covered with some feces and a small amount of blood.
In the post, executive director of the Detroit Dog Rescue, Kristina Rinaldi is asking the public’s help identifying the man and the dog:
“Not a site I ever want my crew to discover.
Sadly, a Pomeranian Mix was dumped in front of Detroit Dog Rescue last night. We do have camera footage and are actively looking for the person responsible for this.
Unfortunately, the dog did not survive.
If anyone has any information about the man, or the vehicle seen in these photos, please call Detroit Dog Rescue at 313-458-8014 or you can email KristinaDDR@gmail.com
Tipsters may remain anonymous.
Executive Director/ DDR”
Anyone with information is asked to call 313.458.8014 or email KristinaDDR@gmail.com.
