IMG_4087.jpg

WENATCHEE- At approximately 9:30 PM on June 5th, 2019 a man found a severely injured dog on the side of the road near Bee Hive and Mission.  He brought the dog to Wenatchee Valley Humane Society where an Animal Care & Control Officer transported the dog to Countryside Veterinarian for emergency care.  X-rays confirmed that the dog had been shot at least three times by what looked to be a hollow point round from a small caliber pistol.  The three shots were to the head, neck and shoulder.  The dog is currently being treated by the WVHS veterinarian with pain medication and antibiotics.  It is not clear if the dog will survive.  The dog is a large adult male, American Pit Bull/Terrier mix, silver/white, neutered and has a previous abdominal scar, indicating that he has an owner.  When found, the dog was not wearing a collar and was without identification or microchip. 

If you have any information please call Wenatchee Animal Care & Control at 509-662-9577, Option 1.
