Two dogs were abandoned in a crate and left to die in a city apartment in late January or February, according to this report on examiner.com, which was confirmed early this morning by Bethlehem Police Commissioner Jason Schiffer.
The dogs were rescued by city police officers on February 16 after neighbors complained about the barking. The dogs may have been left alone for as long as three weeks. The story did not mention the specific location of the apartment.
As described in the report, the dogs – one tan-colored male and one black female – were found together in the same crate, which was filled with feces and urine. The breeds were not mentioned.
The dogs were taken to the in Bethlehem Township, where they have remained since being rescued. The animal hospital is now looking to place the dogs in new homes.
“They are described as young, friendly and not food aggressive and know basic commands but will need some training,” the examiner story says. “They are both a little apprehensive around other animals.”
