A 9-month-old puppy was abandoned in Northeast, D.C. on Wednesday.
The Humane Rescue Alliance is now offering a reward of $5,000 for information in this alleged animal cruelty case, which is being described as horrific.
Authorities said the puppy was abandoned across the street from One Eight Distilling on Okie St. NE in the early morning hours on July 10.
Despite being severely emaciated and suffering from mange, authorities say the puppy is doing well.
A nearby surveillance camera captured a man driving a four door, dark-colored sedan that's missing its hood. Authorities said the car could possibly be a Dodge Charger. An image from the surveillance footage is pictured below.
