We're learning more about the case of an injured dog found thrown away in a dumpster in Nicholasville.

Jessamine County Animal Control says the community is stepping up to help figure out who left it in a cardboard box in the trash.

Investigators say the chihuahua mix was found lifeless in a dumpster Wednesday afternoon at the Helmsdale Apartments on Wichita Drive.

She was badly injured with puncture wounds that were infected.

A veternarian believes the dog was attacked by another animal.

But investigators want to know who put it in a dumpster.

They say they've received more than 100 phone calls with tips from the community.

Meanwhile Animal Control says the dogs vet bills are growing every day.

You can make a donation to help it recover at the Jessamine County Humane Society.
