GREENFIELD (KRON) — The SPCA is offering a $1,500 reward for information about a dog that was pushed out of a car in Greenfield, Monterey County SPCA spokeswoman Beth Brookhouser said.
The dog was pushed out of a car near Apple Avenue and Third Street at around 10 a.m. on Tuesday, the SPCA said.
The vehicle was described as a newer model Kia four-door sedan.
The suspect is believed to be a white man between 45 and 50 years old with a shaved or bald head, SPCA officials said.
Whoever committed the act could face charges of permitting animals to go without care, animal cruelty and abandonment, according to the SPCA.
The animal is a male adult pit bull with cropped ears, an untreated skin condition and dental disease, which makes it difficult to determine his age, according to the SPCA.
The dog has been named Horton and SPCA staff members have been caring for him.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the SPCA at (831) 373-2631 or online at http://www.SPCAmc.org.
