The Suffolk County SPCA rescued an abandoned, injured, chained dog from a Brentwood home. The owner left the dog in the backyard to return to El Salvador with no plans to return. Roy Gross, Chief of the Suffolk County SPCA, said that on May 3, 2016 Suffolk County SPCA investigators arrived at the Brentwood home and removed the dog. The dog was transported to Grady Animal Hospital where it is receiving treatment for a leg wound. The dog was tangled in the heavy chain and had no food or water available.
We are appalled that anyone would leave an innocent animal behind. The dog would ultimately starve to death. The dog, a 4 year old Pit Bull, is in good health. He has a sweet temperament and should be available for adoption shortly.
“Protecting Suffolk County’s animals is the only job we do!”
