An anonymous tip, reported to an animal welfare agency in Ohio, led to the discovery of two emaciated dogs who were frozen solid in Youngstown. According to WFMJ News, in addition to the deceased dogs, four other dogs were found living in poor (unsanitary) conditions.
Two of the living dogs, adults, were described as “emaciated,” and two puppies were found to be in somewhat better condition, though also underweight. All of the surviving dogs have been seized by Animal Charity. The shelter is seeking felony animal cruelty charges against the dogs’ owner for the death of the two skeletal dogs who were found frozen on the property.
The surviving dogs are not currently available for adoption because of the ongoing investigation and pending charges against the owner.
These dogs were saved because someone cared enough to make a report to the animal welfare agency – if you see a concerning situation, please take a moment to make a report to the local authorities. You might save a life.
