The Friends of Campbell County Animal Control posted on its Facebook page on Saturday, Nov. 30, a picture of the dog that appears to have given birth to puppies recently.

The post has gotten over 1,000 Facebook interactions with over 300 comments. Comments range from offers to foster the animal to sadness, anger to hear of the dog’s treatment.

According to the post, security cameras captured men pulling the dog out of the trunk of their car and dragging her into a concrete area where she lay unsheltered all night.

“Do not assume that ‘Tilly’ is their dog.

Anyone with information that may lead to identifying the men who abandoned the dog, call Campbell County Dispatch at (434) 592-9574.
