SPCA officials urge DA's office to file charges against Goshen couple who allegedly starved dog
Hudson Valley SPCA officials are urging the Orange County District Attorney's Office to file charges against a Goshen couple who allegedly starved their dog.
Humane Law Enforcement officials say the 2-year-old dog named Camo was found emaciated by neighbors in May, who reported the dog's condition to them.
They say the wife of the dog's owner was charged for failure to provide sustenance, and the dog was seized.
SPCA officials say the court case was dropped in the Town of Goshen on Monday due to a technicality.
"This dog didn't get this thin overnight. The dog does not have any underlying medical conditions. This dog suffered for a very long time," says Joan Kay, of the Hudson Valley SPCA.
Hudson Valley SPCA officials are asking for donations for Camo's medical expenses and their legal bills to help them keep the dog in their care.
A representative for the District Attorney’s Office says they’re continuing to investigate this case and will bring charges if appropriate.
