CATSKILL, N.Y. -- A five-month-old puppy who was apparently mauled by another animal, was found abandoned in a parking lot in Catskill.
The dog was found in Jefferson Heights by someone driving. Animal Control brought the dog to the Columbia Greene Humane society to examine the dog's injuries.
It was brought to the Cathams Small Animal Hospital where it was placed in intensive care for more than one week. However, veterinarians said the dog should make a full recovery.
Officials said the owners of the dog will face animal cruelty charges. The puppy is returning to the Columbia Green Humane Society today, if anyone is interested in adopting it.
If anyone has information on how the puppy was abandoned, they should call Columbia Greene Humane Society Animal Cruelty Investigation unit at 828-6044.
