One Dog Dead, Another Found Severly Malnourished In Rowan Co.

A non-profit group said two severely neglected dogs were found chained up in Rowan County, and only one of the animals was still alive.

STAR, or Saving the Animals of Rowan, said the surviving dog ‘Lola’ was an adult Doberman that weighed only 30 lbs.

It was only half of what a healthy Doberman should weigh.

According to deputies, the animals were found off of U.S. 60 East in Morehead.

The sheriff’s department said it was investigating and expected charges to be filed in the case.

STAR said Lola was found weak and unsteady, and her core temperature had been 10 degrees lower than it should have been.

The animal rescue group posted pictures of Lola as part of an online fundraiser to help her recover.

STAR said donations could also be made through Paypal via PayPal@stardogrescue.org

Contributions could also be mailed to the address below.
