Dog found abandoned in closet of vacant home
CARIBOU, Maine (WABI/Gray News) - Police in Maine have identified the owner of an abandoned dog found in a vacant home.
According to the Caribou Police Department, officers recently found a dog in the closet of a home that was recently purchased.
“As you can tell the pup has not been properly cared for in quite some time,” Caribou police wrote on social media.
Police asked on Wednesday for the public’s help in identifying the dog’s owner. They reported on Friday that the owner has been identified and police are in the process of locating them.
The department said the house has been empty for a while, and the animal hasn’t received proper care.
Authorities said the dog appears to have been left at the home while it was vacant, meaning after the previous owner left but before the home’s purchase.
Caribou police reported the dog is currently receiving the care it needs.
