Charleston Animal Society offering $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and felony conviction of those involved.

Wednesday | November 30, 2022 | NORTH CHARLESTON –  Police are investigating, trying to determine who abandoned a miniature schnauzer who appears to be suffering from chemical burns on her back.

Two days before Thanksgiving, a person found the dog left alone in a cat carrier, in front of an apartment in the Palmilla Apartment Complex in West Ashley. The dog was taken to an emergency vet clinic for treatment of what appear to be chemical burns. Charleston Animal Society veterinarians have continued lifesaving care or the schnauzer-mix, including pain medication and antibiotics.

Charleston City Police are investigating the dog’s abandonment and Charleston Animal Society is offering a $5000 reward for the arrest and felony conviction of those responsible.

“We believe that someone in the apartment complex knows what happened to this dog and we are hoping someone will step forward with information about her,” said Charleston Animal Society Vice President of Operations and Strategy Aldwin Roman, CAWA. “No animal should be abandoned when they need medical attention.”
