NICHOLASVILLE, KY (WAVE) –
Police are looking for the person responsible for dumping a badly injured dog
in a dumpster.
According to Mike
Cassidy with Jessamine County Public Services, a veterinarian believes an infection in an injury
on the female Chihuahua mix means she was most likely wounded on Monday.
People who live nearby
found the dog in the dumpster behind Helsmdale Apartments, located off Wichita Drive in
Nicholasville, on Wednesday.
The dog was covered in sores and fleas on top of a cardboard
"Originally we thought it
was stab wounds, but after taking it to the vet, they decided it was punctures
from an animal attack," Cassidy said of the dogs injuries, "Anybody that does
something like that to an animal, it's my belief that they're prone to also do
that to humans, whether its neglecting a child. I think it goes further than
just an animal."
Now, the dog that was
considered trash to someone is the most sought after animal in the Jessamine
County Animal Shelter.
Caring for the dog's
infection, boarding costs and rehabilitation will be pricey. If you would like to
donate you are asked to contact the shelter by calling (859) 881-0821 or (859)
