DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) — Thanks to local police officers, the Danville Area Humane Society says a dog is not only alive, but animal cruelty charges are also pending.
The Danville Area Humane Society says members of the Danville Police Department seized an emancipated dog and brought her to the shelter the night of Friday, Aug. 7. That dog reportedly received lifesaving medical treatment at a veterinary clinic on Saturday, Aug. 8.
Even though cruelty charges are already pending, officials with the humane society say they plan to petition the General District Court to secure custody of the dog before the trial.
“Danville police officers are absolutely wonderful in their enforcement of the animal welfare laws,” the Danville Area Human Society wrote on Facebook Saturday morning. “They saved this dog’s life.”
