A dog is lucky to be alive after his owners abandoned him, leaving him tied to a fence when they moved out of state. The Associated Humane Popcorn Park Shelter shared a press release from the Union County Prosecutor’s Office about the cruel situation involving a husky named Carter.

According to the release, 27-year-old Curtis Swan and 29-year-old Aaleyah Clay, left the husky tied to a fence in the backyard and moved to Georgia. The release recounted what is known about the situation:

On Friday, November 20, an Associated Humane Societies of New Jersey animal control officer was dispatched to a home on the 300 block of White Street regarding a welfare check for a possibly abandoned dog in need of medical attention, according to Union County Assistant Prosecutor Patricia Cronin, the Prosecutor’s Office’s designated animal cruelty liaison. There, it was learned that the dog, a young male Husky, had a severe, infected open wound encircling a large portion of his neck, a product of being tied to the backyard fence; the officer then reported the matter to the Roselle Police Department.

The couple allegedly told a neighbor that they would eventually return to get the dog, but a date was not specified. The dog was tied to the fence for five days before being found by an animal control officer. The release details what happened:
