Severely abused dog is chipped by its abuser. The ASPCA tell me they would have to call owner. If that happens this dog will die What to do?
Steal the dog tell nobody and save a life
Call the police about the dog, animal control.
Save the dog! Report the abuse then adopt the dog and find a rehabilitation trainer. I've worked with many abused dogs and know first hand they can live a normal dog's life.
Take pictures and tell owner if they don't surrender the dog that you'll turn pics over to police. Even better get a local news station on it. I bet the owner wouldn't want everyone knowing what a low life they are.
take the dog and dont tell them!
