Police are looking for information after two dogs were located in poor health in north Clarington last month.
According to the DRPS, Clarington Animal Services located a stray dog near Concession Road 10 and Mosport Road in Bowmanville on Oct. 3.
“The dog described as a Pitbull Terrier mix was extremely emaciated and taken to a veterinary office in Newcastle,” reads a media release.
“The dog passed away several days later due to health conditions.”
On October 13, around midnight, police say that a citizen located a female Pitbull Terrier mix dog which was black and white in color.
“The dog was located in extremely poor health near Concession Road 9 and Enfield Road in Clarington. The dog was taken to a local veterinary clinic to get medical attention. The dog is now recovering,” reads a media release.
Police investigators are working with the provincial Animal Welfare Services to locate the owners of the dogs or anyone who may have information.
“They are being treated as separate cases but there appears to be some similarities in both cases,” the media release reads.
