The Pima County Sheriff's Department and the Humane Society of Southern Arizona are hoping the public can help identify two abused and neglected dogs who were abandoned and tethered to the front of the Humane Society's shelter late last week reported

Abandoned were two malnourished, and filthy light colored pit bulls. The white pit bull, now named Lily has bite marks and scars over her body. Her bonded canine friend, Lily, is missing her right ear; her ear canal was filthy and infected.

On the organization's Facebook, the group is asking for any help possible finding the culprits since dog fighting is suspected:

"If you know anything about these dogs and how they came to be in this condition, please call 88-CRIME. Help us prevent animal cruelty and care for Vanna, Lily and all pets that are cruelty victims. A donor has offered to match up to $5,000 in donations for our Second Chance Fund. To make a gift, please visit"

Lily and Vanna will be available for adoption soon; it is hoped both dogs can be adopted together.

You can call the Pima County Sheriff's Department at (888)-477-2328 or (520)-351-4900. The Humane Society of Southern Arizona can be reached by calling (520)-327-6088. Let's help Lily and Vanna find justice. All information will be kept confidential.
