ALEXANDRIA, VA. - On Sunday, Aug. 14, 2016, the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria was contacted by a couple who had discovered a dog abandoned in a crate under a bush on Patrick Street in Old Town Alexandria. The crate was extremely dirty, containing feces and urine. The dog, a black and brown male Yorkshire terrier mix wearing a purple collar with no tags or microchip, was transported to VCA Alexandria Animal Hospital for emergency care. An examination of the non-responsive animal revealed a dog, coat matted with filth, suffering from dehydration and labored breathing--a possible case of severe heatstroke. Despite expert veterinary treatment, the dog  could not be revived. AWLA has requested a necropsy to confirm the cause of death.
The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria is asking the public for any information about the identity of this dog and is offering a $1,000 reward for any facts that lead to the successful conviction and prosecution of the person(s) responsible.
