The Putnam County SPCA is looking for information about three emaciated pit bulls found roaming the area of Tinker Hill Road in Putnam Valley last night. A Good Samaritan caught the dogs and transported them to the Putnam Valley Dog Shelter.
The dogs, one male and two females, are all approximately mid-aged to older and were transported by staff to the Carmel Animal Shelter for examination. All three were rated as 1s on the Body Condition Score, with 1 being severely emaciated, 5 being normal and 9 being obese.
