Dog Seized From Unsanitary Conditions After Anonymous Tip, Officers Still Searching for Two Dogs

 

Humane Rescue Alliance Humane Law Enforcement Officers served a search and seizure warrant at 1238 Simms Place NE, Unit A today and removed one dog from unsanitary and inhumane conditions. Upon entering the residence, Officers found the dog confined in a crate living in his own urine and feces with no access to water. The investigation revealed the dog had been left alone since at least Sunday.

“I’m relieved this dog will no longer have to languish in these inhumane conditions thanks to the swift work of HRA Humane Law Enforcement Officers,” said Chris Schindler, Vice President of Field Services at Humane Rescue Alliance. “Our officers will continue to investigate claims of animal cruelty and prosecute these crimes to the fullest extent of the law.”

The investigation began when an anonymous tip stated three dogs were being neglected inside of the NE apartment. The case remains under investigation, as HRA continues to seek out the location of the other two dogs reported to live at the residence. Anyone with information as to their possible whereabouts is asked to call 202-723-5730, option 1.

The dog seized by Officers will remain in the care of HRA until the case is resolved.
