Connersville PD is looking for the owners of two pets who were left in a cage



Indianapolis, Indiana – Two canines were discovered abandoned in a cage with a note “surrendering” the dogs to whoever found them, and Connersville police are looking for their owners.

Two adult canines were discovered in a small metal cage on Monday by responding officers in the 1000 block of West 18th Street, a few streets west of Reid Health Connersville.

The Connersville Police Department posted on Facebook that the canines were “hot and lethargic due to the heat and a lack of airflow,” had “defecated inside the crate, and were confined in a very small area where movement was almost impossible.”

In the little cage, officers discovered a bag of dog food, two dog bowls, and a little water bottle.

The dogs were known to the police as “Kilo” and “Rosco.”

Both canines were taken to the Fayette County Animal Shelter, where officials informed the cops that although they continue to take in abandoned dogs, they do not have the resources or facilities to adequately care for them.

“We intend to investigate and present criminal charges against the owners who neglected their obligation and left these animals in very dangerous conditions. Neglect of a Vertebrate Animal could be up to a Level 6 Felony in Indiana,” Connersville PD wrote on Facebook.

Kilo and Rosco’s owners may be known by calling K-9 Officer Brennan Watson at 765-825-2111 between the hours of 2 and 10 pm.

Police in Connersville advise anyone looking for a lifelong companion to go to the Fayette County Animal Shelter.
