PETITION TARGET: Georgetown Police Department

Two neglected dogs were heartlessly dumped in a cage on the side of a road in Georgetown, Kentucky.

The dogs were picked up in the middle of the night by Nathan Mullikin, assistant director of the Scott County Animal Care and Control, after receiving a call about the abandoned animals.

Both dogs had overgrown nails, were malnourished, and were covered in feces and urine. The cramped wire crate did not appear to have food or water inside it; they seemed to have been left to starve.

“They were scared. Even when we got back here, it took them a night to kind of decompress a bit, but I think once they found that they had a warm place to lay and food and water, I think they settled in overnight,” Mullikin told local news.

Animal control cleaned, fed, and loved on the two abandoned dogs who had been placed in a kennel and left to die. We are happy to report that both dogs – now named Megan and Leigh – found a new home together, according to animal control’s Facebook page.

In Kentucky, abandoning an animal is classified as second-degree animal cruelty.

“There are so many resources nowadays; there’s no reason to leave an animal like that or to abuse an animal,” Mullikin added.

Sign our petition to hold the person(s) responsible for dumping these dogs in a cage and apparently leaving them to die accountable to the fullest extent of the law.
