SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio — The South Euclid Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying the person or persons responsible for dumping two dogs that were so badly neglected they had to be humanely euthanized.

On Monday around 1:07 p.m., the Animal Warden called South Euclid police to report two emaciated dogs left lying by a tree on Monarch Road by Adrian Elementary School, police said.

The dogs were believed to be three-year-old female husky/shepherd mixes.

Given the poor health of the dogs, police said they believe the dogs were placed at the location they were found.

Both of the dogs were so emaciated and in such poor health, they had to be humanely euthanized, according to police.

Warning: The South Euclid Police Department shared images of the dogs, but they are extremely graphic in nature. They can be viewed here.

Anyone with information regarding the incident or the individual(s) involved is asked to police at 216-691-4285.
