WEST WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — West Warwick police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who abandoned an ailing English bulldog outside the local animal shelter with no food or water in cold temperatures earlier this month.
Police say a surveillance camera recorded the man tying up the dog outside the West Warwick Animal Shelter at about 4:15 a.m. on Jan. 7. Officer say the man then drove off in what appeared to be a white, late model Volkswagen Jetta.
Police say the male dog is old, visually impaired and had signs of neglect. It’s being treated at the shelter.
Anyone with information about the man or dog is asked to call West Warwick police.
