Two dogs were found abandoned without food or water and tied to a fence in East Haddam this week.
Police are asking for the public’s help locating their owner of a female pit bull mix and a male terrier mix found at Nichols Field in the middle of the day. Meanwhile, the dog pound is just up the road from Nichols Field.
"For any animal not to have water especially in this kind of weather is not a good thing,” East Haddam resident Helena Wilson said.
Thanks to a Good Samaritan, animal control was called to rescue the dogs just shortly after they were dropped off. Both dogs are in good health, friendly, and love playing with each other.
Many people told Eyewitness News they just can't understand how someone could do this.
"Who just leaves it like that? I mean you have a connection with your animals,” East Haddam resident Caitlin Wilson said. “I could never just leave a dog like that."
While East Haddam Animal Control is more focused on finding the dogs a forever home, they're also following up on leads and looking for any eyewitnesses.
"I'm disgusted and I really hope we can catch the person who has done this,” Helena Wilson said.
If anyone recognizes these dogs and knows who dropped them off, you're asked to call East Haddam Animal Control at 860-873-5044. If you'd like to adopt these two dogs, click here.
