4 Pit Bulls Abandoned in Woodbridge, SPCA Offers Reward, Asks for Help

Surveillance cameras were rolling June 5, as a male suspect was seen removing four pit bulls from the back of a truck in a parking lot and then driving off in the Port Reading section of Woodbridge. One of the dogs was injured with a fractured spine and hip.

The surveillance tapes have been released and the NJSPCA is asking for the public’s help identifying the suspect. The suspect appears to be male, and is seen walking with limp.

 

Two vehicles appear to have been involved in the incident.

“The smaller vehicle that came ahead of the larger vehicle appeared to be checking out the scene,” Matt Stanton of the NJSPCA says. The second vehicle, a late-model pickup truck came afterward to drop off the dogs.

A concerned resident who noticed the roaming dogs called animal control officers who were able to capture all four animals June 6. Three of the dogs were in good condition, the fourth was injured with a fractured spine, hip and taken to the vet.

Stanton says the vet believes the injured dog was hit by a car at some point, but there’s no way to be sure. All four animals are currently placed in the Woodbridge Animal Shelter, “but pit bulls are hard to adopt,” Stanton says.

The Woodbridge Animal Shelter is offering a $3,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of  a suspect.  Anyone with knowledge of the incident is asked to contact the NJSPCA hot line at 1(800)582-5979.
