UPDATE (2/19): Sixteen dogs have been seized by the SPCA and their owner Susan Clark has been issued an appearance ticket for “Inappropriate Shelter for Dogs Left Outdoors.”
State Police are now conducting a joint investigation with the Town of Addison Animal Control and Finger Lakes SPCA.
Five dogs in Addison, NY have been spotted on the side of Mose Road near the Equine Inn. The five dogs appear to be in bad shape and have not received proper care in quite some time.
Multiple people passing by the animals on the road have made phone calls to officials and multiple animal shelters across the area.
18 News spoke with a local animal rescue agency out of Corning named “Tanners P.A.W.S.” that posted on their Facebook page two pictures that were sent to them by someone who was attempting to pick the dogs up but they were unsuccessful.
According to an official from the rescue agency, it appears one of the dogs pictured has injuries that may need medical attention.
Multiple tips have been sent to the police department about who the possible owner of these dogs may be and it appears this situation has been ongoing for a longer time then officials had originally expected.
The situation still remains under investigation so if you or anyone you know has any information about these animals you are asked to contact the Painted Post state police barracks at 607-962-6865.
