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.

Kristina Rinaldi
Executive Director/ DDR”

Anyone with information is asked to call 313.458.8014 or email KristinaDDR@gmail.com.

    I will never understand why, when it is so cold outside and the shelters KNOW that people dump their dogs that the shelter does not have SOMEONE on duty just for the purpose of taking dogs in out of the cold. RIP baby, you did not deserve to die like that, you could have been saved.

      I agree with you. I hope this POS burns in Hell forever for his cruelty…… I also hope that this POS dies a terrible, agonizing death alone and afraid……

    Unfuckingbelieveable!!! I hope your dumbass is found, tethered to a post in the cold and left to die a miserable death, like the one you gave this poor baby!

    I wish the law said, that anyone who leaves their dog in a car, in freezing weather, and abandoned, that they would be made to suffer the same fate

    Police, do your job and find the scum who did this to a defenseless dog. Then leave him outside overnight to freeze to deal. Give him the same justice he gave this poor pug. Couldn’t wait until the place was open again to dump this animal. When they find out who did this, there should be public hangings and immediate do away with these people.

    When found, this creatin needs put in a box outside so he can feel what that poor dog went through. Too bad we can’t wipe out SUB-HUMANS from this earth.

    What is wrong with these people?
    They should never be allowed to be near a dog,
    Anyone who intentionally hurts any animal should be jailed and beaten daily. That will be an introduction to their place in hell where they deserve to spend there afterlife.

    fuckers! Someone left a dog at a no killer shelter where I live at 7am and the dog was left for 45 minutes..thank goodness it survived. It was at Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem Ma.

    It is time for those who take these innocent souls for granted to pay for the cruelty, the abandonment, the starvation, and LEAVING THEM TO FREEZE TO DEATH. HOW HEARTLESS ARE YOU DEVIL SCUM?????? IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO PAY. REAP WHAT YOU SOW!
