San Diego Humane Society investigates animal abuse in Oceanside – NBC 7 San Diego

Someone left two dogs to die in a shipping container at Buena Vista Lagoon in Oceanside last week and the San Diego Humane Society law enforcement team is offering a reward for tips that lead to a arrest.

A $1,000 reward is being offered to anyone who helps find the person or persons responsible for dumping the dogs near Jefferson Street at Lagoon View Drive on Oct. 18, the Humane Law Enforcement Team said. the San Diego Humane Society.

The dogs, roughly one-year-old herding mixes, were so emaciated that one died while a humanitarian officer was transporting them to the Oceanside shelter for treatment, the humanitarian society said. The other had to be put down soon after because the dog was in a lot of pain.

A dog, according to the San Diego Humane Society, was left for dead in Oceanside on October 18.

“These dogs were deprived of adequate food for a very long time to reach such an emaciated state,” said Bill Ganley, head of Humane Law Enforcement at the San Diego Humane Society. “The fact that they were next to a shipping container leads us to believe that they were intentionally dumped by the lagoon.”

The person responsible could be accused of animal abuse.

Anyone with information about dogs or anyone needing help caring for pets has been asked to call the San Diego Humane Society at 619-299-7012. Anyone who suspects animal cruelty or neglect should then press option 1.
