To many people, the dogs or cats we live with are more than just pets – they are family. Not everyone feels this way, and many animals are abused and mistreated every day. People in Fresno are being asked to help identify the cruel man seen abusing this dog! Fresno Animal Humane Control wants to know his name – if you know who he is, please call 559.600.7387 now!

The man was seen dragging and picking up the dog by its leash. Witnesses could hear the dog whining in pain. Kmph News reported that the incident occurred in downtown Fresno near Ventura and “M” Street. We need to be the voice for those who can’t speak. We need to let people know that this sort of behavior is unacceptable and there are penalties.

Take a look at this video

We all hope the man from the video is found and that the dog is okay. The dog deserves a loving home.

Share away, people.
