Animal control officials are asking for your help after another case of animal abuse in Ingham County.
Ingham County animal control officers were called out to the 700 block of West Maple Monday afternoon after someone heard a dog crying in a sewer.
The dog is generally happy, but he has a long road of recovery ahead of him. Officials say he was found neglected, in poor condition, weak with open wounds and sores, dehydrated, skinny and had little hair.
Now, the boy who found him, is bringing him even more hope.
If you have any information, you're asked to call Ingham County Animal Controls anonymous tip line at 517-657-8376.
"I really want to adopt him. I already came up with a name for him and everything. Storm. Because of like the storm, rain, that it runs off into," said Abraham Casino. "I was waiting for my dad over at the school. He was enrolling my little brother and just decided to take a walk over here. I heard some whimpering so I stopped and listened to it again and it was coming from this drain. So I walked over there an heard him again and I looked down there and his eyes, he was looking up at me."
They quickly called Ingham County Animal Control. When officers arrived, city employees had already gotten the puppy out of the sewer.
"To lift that heavy, heavy grate which was very difficult and to put him in there shove him in there and then put the grate back on top so that the average person couldn't get that dog out," said Jamie McAloon Lampman, with the Ingham County Animal Control and Shelter. "That's even more upsetting. That's really bothersome that we can think juveniles could be responsible for some of these heinous acts."
Officials say the dog was last seen being walked by a group of teenagers in that area just hours before he was found crammed in the drain.
"Why would someone put a dog in there like that? What did the dog do to you?" says Abraham.
"We don't give up. We don't give up at all. It may not be today, may not be next week, it could be a year from now, but we're going to get these people," said Lampman.
