A small dog was found abandoned in Kent on Friday morning, CBS News reported December 28.
According to the Putnam County SPCA, an abandoned Yorkshire terrier was left in a wire crate in a snowy patch near White Pond Road near Farmers Mills Road.
The sweet little dog had nothing but this wire crate to protect him from the cold, as well as any wild animals who were looking for food in the snow-covered landscape.
Although the snow was beautiful, it could have proved deadly to the dog, who is estimated to be between 4-6 years old. The SPCA, as well as Kent authorities are looking for the heartless owners who left their dog to die in below freezing temperatures.
The dog, who is unneutered, was found by a Good Samaritan, who contacted Ken Police Friday morning. The town's animal control officer rescued the little dog around 7a.m.
The police are seeking the owners, because it's a misdemeanor to abandon a pet in Putnam County. The owner can be charged with pet abandonment, which carries a fine of up to $1,000 and/or up to a year in prison.
