Dog Tied Up, Abandoned in Sub-Freezing Temps at Animal Shelter
SALEM, Mass. — The Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, Massachusetts, is searching for the woman who tied a dog up outside the shelter in just 7 degree weather early Tuesday morning.
The dog was discovered approximately 45 minutes after she was dropped off.
The animal shelter posted on Facebook a photo of the dog and surveillance photos of woman and the car she was driving in hopes someone will recognize her.
The woman is white with light brown hair. She was wearing what appeared to be camouflage pants and a camouflage jacket.
Shelters often have a surrender fee for animals, but many times they will waive the fee if the owner truly cannot pay.
By 1 p.m. Tuesday, the post has been shared almost 3,000 times.
The shelter says staff fed the dog and wrapped her in blankets.
"She'll be safe with us until she finds a new home with someone who will love her forever," the post reads.
Anyone with information should call the Northeast Animal Shelter at (978) 745-9888 or the Salem, Massachusetts, police department.
