A reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever neglected a dog named Molly. On Wednesday, the Rhode Island Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RISPCA) posted a photo of the badly neglected dog and provided some information:

Today we were contacted by the West Warwick Shelter about an aged dog that was brought to them on August 12. The person did not give any information other than to say he found the dog on Main Street near the library.


According to the RISPCA, the dog was wearing a collar, with a name tag showing that her name is Molly. The dog also has a microchip.

Neglected dog’s dismal physical condition

RISPCA President E.J. Finocchio outlined Molly’s dismal physical condition – he told WPIR News that the dog is in extremely poor health, suffering from a broken jaw, severe dental problems, tumors and skin problems across her entire body. Despite her obvious pain and discomfort, Molly appears to be happy.

Reward for information and possible charges

The reward for an arrest and conviction was originally $500, but it has climbed to $2,500. The responsible individual will face a misdemeanor neglect charge, or a felony if the dog passes away.

Anyone with information should call the RISPCA at 401-438-8150.

    If Molly has a chip, can they trace it to the last owner? Hope and pray Molly gets fixed up and can have several good years left. What a horrible creature to do this to such a tiny animal. They should be tortured the way they did to Molly and never know a moments peace. Keep us up to date on Molly.

    Boy I hope We as American’s ; animal rescue organizations: Shelters with Ethics: What few honest and caring members of Congress: can find a way to promote tough laws to be drawn up and followed for the Riff-Raff & Putrid Scum Bag Criminals that are downright butchering, torturing, maiming and starving these helpless companion animal’s … Also there needs to be UP FRONT HONESTY instead OF KICKBACKS to the LAW Enforcement Agencies that turn their heads in the NUMEROUS DOG < CHICKEN < ROOSTER >> he walked away When he should have had Prison time…!

    I hope Molly recovers ASAP and finds a furever home where she will be a treasured family member……

    The POS who tortured and abused this precious furbaby has a reserved space in Hell where he will burn forever for his cruelty….. let’s all hope that he gets there ASAP (after dying unloved, alone, afraid and in pain)…….
