Extremely Emaciated Pitbulls Found in Putnam County
The Putnam County SPCA is seeking information on three pit bulls found at-large earlier today in the Town of Putnam Valley. At approximately 9:45 a.m. on Monday, March 2, 2020, a Good Samaritan found three pit bulls running at large on Tinker Hill Road, Putnam Valley.
The dogs were caught and taken to the Putnam Valley Shelter. Due to their condition, the three dogs were taken by DCO Mary Madsen to the Carmel Animal Hospital where they were rated at 1 out of 9 on the Body Condition Score (1 being severely emaciated, 5 being normal, 9 being obese). All three dogs were found to be extremely emaciated.
The Putnam County SPCA is investigating this as possible Animal Cruelty / Neglect which are Class A Misdemeanors and possible Abandonment which are Unclassified Misdemeanors under the NYS Agriculture & Markets Law.
The Putnam County SPCA asks if anyone has any information regarding these three dogs to contact our Cruelty Hotline – 845-520-6915.
