Friday, January 5, 2018 around 11a.m. we received a call about a puppy that had been abandoned on the curb inside a trash bag on Owsley Avenue. Our officers immediately responded and transported the puppy back to our facility for care.
The puppy was malnourished and “near death,” at the time reported Kentucky.com. Fortunately, by January 8, the shelter posted a video of the puppy and let page followers know that the pup had made “tremendous improvements,” but was still under close observation.
