CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Animal humane workers are hoping the public can help identify the person responsible for leaving an injured dog in a dumpster.
The Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County said the dog, now named Phoenix by humane workers, was found in the dumpster last week by a sanitation worker attempting to empty the canister on Beal Street in Warren.
The dog was recovered from the dumpster and taken to a veterinarian, who noted wounds on all four limbs, as well as infections on the head and neck area. A busted tooth that split into the gum line will also need to be extracted.
The Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County said a generous donor has agreed to cover 100% of Phoenix’s medical costs.
Anybody who can provide surveillance video from the area or recognize the dog is asked to call the Trumbull County humane department at 330-539-5300.
Phoenix is expected to be available for adoption once she recovers from her injuries.
