SPCA Seeks Info About Dog

Found in Carmel in “horrific state”

The Putnam County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is seeking information about a 16-pound dog found on June 21 on Drewville Road in Carmel. A passerby brought the dog, which was in what authorities called “a horrific state,” to Roosevelt Veterinary Center in Brewster.

The Putnam County SPCA is seeking help from anyone with information about the five-to-eight-year-old poodle mix, which the hospital staff has named Douglas, to call the SPCA’s 24-hour hotline at 845-520-6915. All calls can be kept confidential. The New York State Humane Society has offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of any person responsible for the dog’s abandonment and neglect.
