Hamden, Connecticut police are investigating the strange case of two dogs found abandoned in crates in a wooded area off Mountain Road on Thursday, NH Register reported June 25. According to a Facebook: Meriden Humane Society post, there was food and water near the crates, and the dogs had water inside the crates.
“One of them looked older, and the other one looked like she may have had a litter not too long ago. They were friendly — the older one was a little scared but what animal wouldn’t be, out in the woods in a crate? The other one was very friendly and licking me through the crate. They were shaken up and barking but they weren’t vicious. They didn’t have a mark on them so they were definitely not fighting dogs.”
Janette was asked to share the dogs on her Facebook page, along with the photos she took of the two dogs. At this time, her post has been reshared almost 12,000 times.
This is an interesting case that has police and residents baffled. The dogs are healthy and well cared for. They’re friendly. It’s true they were abandoned, but they were abandoned with food and water on a street known for its animal lovers. The inside of each crate had clean cardboard and blankets. Who does this? Why didn’t the owner contact the Humane Society or a local dog rescue?
Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact Hamden Police at (203) 230-4000. For information on adopting the dogs, contact Hamden Animal Control at 203-230-4080.
