FORT WAYNE, IN – Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control is asking for the public’s help to gain more information about a deceased dog found in a dumpster in the Baldwin Creek Apartment Complex. 

Animal Control Officers were notified of a dog in a dumpster located at 2130 Hobson Road inside of the apartment complex Tuesday morning. When Animal Control officers arrived on scene they found an extrPHOTO1emely emaciated deceased pit bull mix dog inside.

FWACC’s medical team examined the dog once back at the shelter and determined it is between 6 to 12 months old and extremely emaciated. Based on its condition they determined it was likely kept inside a crate or small enclosure prior to its death. The dog is a tri-colored pit bull mix.. No photos of the deceased dog will be released.

Officers have canvased the apartment complex and are asking the public to call our department at 427-1244 or 449-3000 after 8 p.m. and on weekends with any information about this case.

Welcome to FWACC!
