WEST HAVEN — City Animal Control said a dog was found tied to a pole — with a necktie — at an apartment complex on Campbell Avenue Saturday.

“We are asking for the public’s assistance at this time regarding this sweet girl who was found tied to a pole Saturday, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the apartment complex at 998 Campbell Ave.”

“We understand that sometimes the options are limited in re-homing your animals, but there are options and this is absolutely unacceptable (and against the law). If anyone has any information pertinent to this case, please call the shelter (203) 937-3642. You can remain anonymous.”

“I don’t even think there’s a chance that even Hell would accept them,” said Chief of Police Joseph Perno, the owner of five Labrador retrievers — three yellow, one brown, one black, all rescues — when asked what he thought of the person who might commit such a crime.

Perno said he “couldn’t believe it would just be someone” getting rid of a no-longer-wanted pet. “There are so many other ways available to you” to do that, he said.

“To whomever loves dogs,” the note read. “She’s an amazing dog. House trained. Brendal and Bully. Aug. 12 she’ll be 3 years. Human friendly. Dog friendly. All shots and a sweet heart. Her name is Annabell. Couldn’t afford her. Please help.”

Another state law prohibits people from tethering a dog to a stationary object “for an unreasonable amount of time.”

Connecticut’s cruelty to animals law — CGS 53-247 (a) — says “individuals who have custody of an animal may not treat it cruelly; fail to provide it with proper food, drink, or shelter; abandon it; or carry or cause it to be carried in a cruel manner.”

A first violation of any of the above provisions in the statute is punishable by a fine of up to $1,000, imprisonment for up to one year, or both. Each subsequent offense is a class D felony, punishable by a fine of up to $5,000, imprisonment for up to five years, or both.
