UPDATE on Emaciated Dog Found Abandoned

Fort Wayne, Indiana (July 12, 2021) – After receiving extensive medical care the emaciated dog found July 1 has passed away.

An emaciated and abandoned dog was discovered near the former Target building in the 7600 block of South Anthony Boulevard. Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control is seeking information about the person or persons responsible for the condition of the dog. Courtesy photo.

The dog was slowly showing some signs of improvement until Thursday, July 8, when our medical team noticed he had taken a turn for the worse. He received a blood transfusion Friday afternoon in hopes it would help him become stable. Friday evening it was evident the transfusion was not successful in helping his condition and our medical team made the difficult decision to humanely euthanize him to end his suffering.

The investigation continues and we are still requesting anyone with information regarding this case to contact our office at 427-1244 option 1.
