FRANKFORT, Ky. -This morning Frankfort Animal Control received a complaint of an abandoned puppy on Kentucky Avenue. 

Employees of the Frankfort Sewer Department stated they had observed a white female (5’2”-5’6”, blonde hair, slender build, operating a late model silver Chevrolet SUV) park near the entrance to the Plant.  They further stated she got out of the vehicle carrying a box and walked over the bank towards the river. 

She returned a short time later without the box and drove away.

The witnesses went to retrieve the box and investigate.

They discovered a small Chihuahua puppy and notified authorities.

A veterinary examination determined that this 5 week old female puppy, if not discovered by the witnesses, would have likely died.

The Frankfort Police Department currently has an active criminal investigation (Cruelty to Animals 2nd Degree) in this incident and is asking that anyone who may have information on this crime to please call them at (502) 875-8523.

Information may be given anonymously by calling Frankfort Crime Stoppers at 502 875-8648 or on the web at www.frankfortcrimestoppers.com 

To submit an anonymous tip through text messaging, type FCS and your message, then send it to 274637 (CRIMES on most cell phones).

Crime Stoppers may pay a cash reward of up to $1,000.00 for information leading to an arrest in this case.

The puppy is currently being cared for by the Franklin County Humane Society.
