Call 480-W-I-T-N-E-S-S with Information.

The Arizona Humane Society is looking for any tips that may lead them to the person who threw a four-month-old Pit Bull puppy in a dumpster. 
The puppy was found by a Good Samaritan in a dumpster located in the area of 19th Avenue and Bell Road at approximately 12 p.m. on Wednesday, July 11. The puppy, now named Tommy, was wrapped in a dark colored blanket wearing a plain collar with no tags. He was transferred to AHS' Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital™ where X-rays revealed that both of his back legs were broken. He has since undergone surgery on both legs, thanks to Dr. Capwell, and is recovering in a Foster Hero home with the AHS’ lead veterinarian. He has the sweetest disposition and tries to hobble into everyone’s lap. Anyone with information is encouraged to call Silent Witness at 480-W-I-T-N-E-S-S, 480-948-6377, or 480-T-E-S-T-I-G-O for Spanish.
