PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – The Oregon Humane Society is seeking information and offering a reward in the case of a neglected and abandoned dog in Clackamas County.

A 2 to 3-year-old male Pomeranian was found inside a filthy crate beside a logging road in the area of South Hillockburn and Resort Road near Goat Mountain in Estacada on June 24, according to OHS. 

OHS says the dog was emaciated with soiled, matted fur and was missing hair on more than half of his body.

The dog was found by good Samaritans and was taken to DoveLewis where he was stabilized. He was then taken to OHS for continued medical care. Staff at OHS named him Treasure.

Treasure continues to receive care at OHS and is not available for adoption. 

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call (503) 802-6707 or submit a tip online. A $500 reward is being offered for information leading to the suspect’s arrest and conviction. 

“Our hope is that our pet-loving community will help us find the owner of the dog, or whoever is responsible,” Leon Colas, OHS Vice President of Humane Investigations and Law Enforcement, said in a news release Sunday. “Anyone who would do this to an animal needs to be held accountable.”

Even at the age of 68 I'm still 'surprised' that we have so many monsters in this world. I hope they catch the person/people that did this and any other abuse/neglect/murder of these innocent. beautiful animals.

Completely agree, except part regarding surprise at the number of monsters . They are every where, all kinds, they look just like anyone else, no horns, no fangs. As for accountability,. There can be absolutely no excuse for this sort of neglect and abuse. I hope the responsible party is apprehended and discovers the seriousness society considers these acts.
