Abused Dog Recovering
APPLETON, Wis.-- A $500 reward is being offered to help find the person responsible for abusing and abandoning a dog in Appleton. The dog named Chance was left in a small crate, starving and barely alive on the city's west side. He's now recovering at the Fox Valley Humane Association while the organization aims to find the people responsible.
Chance was discovered on the corner of Lindbergh and Locust streets in very bad shape and brought to the Fox Valley Humane Association. Shelter director Deb Lewis says the dog was starving and his legs crooked from spending most of his life in the crate.
"And that's evidenced by the way the dog walks and the condition of the dog's feet,” Lewis said. “The dog also has urine scald on the feet because the crate was indeed filled with urine and feces."
Chance is on a special diet and will go through a six to nine month rehab before he can be adopted.
