Animal lovers and an animal welfare organization are still on the lookout for whoever in Port Reading last week.
The NJSPCA posted another video to their website of a second vehicle involved in the dog abandonment incident last week. The occupants of the vehicle, a white car, appeared an hour before a white pickup truck with a cap over the bed dropped off four pitbulls.
There were two people in the white car. According to a poster on the NJSPCA Facebook page, they were 'casing' the parking lot, located on Markley Road in Port Reading, to see if the coast was clear before they abandoned the dogs to their fate.
After the white pickup truck appeared and the driver got out and dropped off the dogs, the white car reappeared for a second time for no apparent reason. The dogs ran up to someone sitting on the passenger side of the car, whom they apparently recognized.
The involved in the dog dumping came from the security camera on a building near the parking lot.
One of the dogs had severe bite marks, while another apparently had a broken leg. All four dogs are recuperating at the , where they will eventually be available for adoption.
The volunteers at the animal shelter have put up a $1,000 reward for information on the dog dumpers. The NJSPCA has matched that amount, so the total reward is now $2,000.
Anyone with information should call the NJSPCA's Animal Abuse hotline at 800-582-5979, or the Woodbridge Animal Shelter at 732-726-7036. Reports will be kept confidential.
