Reynoldsburg police charged a man with animal cruelty after finding a dog caged and abandoned at 8:53 p.m. Nov. 2 in a house in the 6300 block of Brent Court.

The reporting officer said a neighbor reported the residents had moved out at 2:30 a.m. Nov. 1, but he had heard a dog barking from inside ever since. The officer contacted the landlord, who attempted to open the locked doors, but when the keys did not work, the officer climbed through a missing window.

The officer said all of the rooms were cluttered with trash and he found a brown dog that appeared to be a pit bull in a cage. He said the dog was sitting in his own urine and feces, with no food or water. The dog “was visibly shaking” and did not appear to be in good health, with “fur missing from half its body,” the officer wrote in the report. He said the dog was very friendly and he and other officers were able to get him out of the cage and into a cruiser to wait for officials from the Franklin County Dog Shelter.

Officers were able to locate the owner, who was told to come to the police station and pick up his citation.
