Abandoned dog found tied to tree; police looking for owner


EAST FISHKILL – State Police from the East Fishkill barracks assisted the New York State Department of Transportation with an abandoned dog on Interstate 84 in the town of East Fishkill.

At about 10:30 a.m. on July 24, a NYSDOT crew getting ready to mow near mile marker 50 on Interstate 84 heard what sounded like a dog barking in the nearby woods.  They found a young dog tied to a tree that also showed signs of prior neglect.

With the assistance of The East Fishkill Dog Warden, East Fishkill Police Department, and the Dutchess County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals the dog is now being cared for.
