Emaciated puppy dropped at shelter; tips requested to find owners

Local News

Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control is asking for the public’s help to figure out how a puppy became so emaciated.


On December 26, 2018, an emaciated puppy was brought to the shelter. The only information the shelter was given was that it was found on Dodge Avenue. An address was not provided. If you’ve seen this dog in that area or know where it may have come from, the shelter is asking that you contact them. The dog was sent to a local rescue group.

“If you’ve seen this dog in that area or even on social media, give us a call,” Holly Pasquinelli, the Community Relations and Education Specialist for Animal Care and Control, said. “Any information that could help us understand what happened to this dog we need so we can solve this case .”
