Abandoned Rat Terrier – Reward!
The Danville Area Humane Society now must also offer a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who tied a young, male rat terrier mix in an abandoned house, and then failed to provide adequate care.
The Inspections Department called the Police Department to remove a young, emaciated male rat terrier mix from an abandoned house on Worsham Street in Danville this afternoon. The dog had been tied in the house, and is severely malnourished and dehydrated. He is expected to survive. We expect that he will be ready to be adopted in 12 days.
Anyone with information is urged to call the Danville Area Humane Society at 799-5306. Callers may remain anonymous. Abandonment of animals is an ongoing problem, but we are alarmed by the number of animals being abandoned and mistreated this summer.
