In a post September 16th, NPD reported that a male and female were caught on surveillance camera abandoning a dog outside a pound without notice around 3:45pm.
NPD were able to identify the suspects after asking the public’s help in a post on Facebook.
NPD encourages those who can no longer care for their dogs to bring them to a shelter during business hours and to not abandon them “on a 2-foot leash for an extended period of time without food and water.”
“Never leave an animal at the pound unattended. If you need help surrendering a dog please contact the on-duty ACO to make an appointment.”– Norwich Police Department
