SCRAPS Press Release: 

Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service:  SCRAPS is currently asking for the public's help in locating the possible owner or individuals responsible for causing injury to a one year old, male, husky-mix dog. The animal was found near Bridges Road in Deer Park on Friday, January 25, 2013 and taken to the Pet Emergency Clinic in Spokane. At the clinic, veterinarians were able to determine that something had been wrapped around the dog's neck, similar to a collar, rubber band or cable. The collar or cable had become embedded into the dog's neck, indicating that it had been there for a very long time. SCRAPS Animal Protection Operations Manager, Nicole Montano, stated that she has seen this type of neglect before. "Typically a collar or chain is placed on a dog when they are a puppy and still growing," said Montano. "These collars aren't very apparent, especially if the dog is an outside dog and has minimal contact with people."  

The animal is currently in the care and custody of SCRAPS where he will be provided continued medical care and treatment. "This type of neglect may be considered animal cruelty in the 2nd degree and unsafe confinement," continued Montano. RCW 16.52.207 indicates that animal cruelty in the 2nd degree is a gross misdemeanor and RCW 16.52.080 is a misdemeanor. Misdemeanors are punishable by up to 90 days in jail and/or a $1000 fine. Gross misdemeanors are punishable by up to 365 days in jail and/or a $5000 fine. 

If anyone has information about the dog's owner or where he might have come from, please contact SCRAPS at 477-2532.
