Monroe, Conn. (WTNH) - The SPCA of Connecticut is offering a $1,000 reward to anyone who can identify the former owner of two dogs that were dropped off at their Monroe shelter last week.
The severely abused dogs were found Thursday morning by SPCA staff member.
"These dog have got severe, severe mange and they're emaciated. They haven't been cared for at all," said Fred Acker, Director, SPCA.
Acker says they've already received a tip that the female dog's name is Prada, the male dog's name is Shotti and their owner is from Waterbury.
The dogs will not be able to be adopted out for months because of all the medical care they need. However, the SPCA, a no-kill shelter, says they are desperately trying to find homes for 29 other dogs in 29 days.
"With the economy and adoptions slowing down we're down by about 40-percent in the last month of two we would like to find homes for some of our long term residents," Acker said.
As part of the adoption push, the SPCA is slashing its adoption fee from $425 to just $29 on dogs that have been here for months.
Prada and Shotti are adjusting well and this story about them may bring more clues as to who abused and abandoned them."
