Severely emaciated dog left for dead in Wichita alley

Posted: Updated:

The Wichita Police Department is asking for help in finding the person who dumped Aadya in an alley, leaving her for dead on the city's north side.

The one to two-year-old dog was left in the alley in the 1800 block of North Arkansas, on Monday around 2 a.m. A witness saw a blue or dark colored van drop off a dog and left.

"A resident saw this and went out to see what was left and found a brown in color female pit bull that was nothing but skin and bones and was left for dead," the Facebook post says. "The dog was picked up by the resident and taken to a local vet clinic where it is being treated but is in extremely critical condition."

KAKE News talked to the witness, who was woken up by the sound of a neighbor dog's bark and found the emaciated dog.

"I could feel every single bone inside of her body. It was heartbreaking," said Vinny Currie, who rescued the dog.

Currie contacted the Beauties and Beasts, Inc., animal rescue group to help.

"Out of the thousands of dogs the Beauties and Beast has saved, I've never seen one so emaciated. She was almost flat, except for her ribs," said Randi Carter.

The car description is a dark colored van, in the color blue, and 1990s model. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (316) 267-2111 or WPD animal services at (316) 350-3360.
