Suspect(s) Unknown - We need your help!
An animal rescue in Denver is working with Topeka investigators to find who brutalized a dog.
Two weeks ago, Kansas Highway Patrol troopers found Porsche, a purebred Mastiff with extensive head injuries, along US 75 near Rolling Meadows Landfill. They took her to Stone House Animal Hospital in Topeka where someone posted her picture on Facebook.
Georgia Cameron, Vice President of a Denver Animal Rescue, traveled to Topeka to bring Porsche to her home for treatment.
Troopers say they thought she'd been hit by a car, but vets in Denver found otherwise. They say one side of her sinus cavity was demolished. She'd suffered several beatings to her face from what they believe was a baseball bat.
Denver vets removed shards of shattered bone from Porsche's sinus cavity, and stitched closed the gaping hole in her face.
Cameron says she's reached a standstill with several Topeka area law enforcement agencies, so they opened an independent investigation on Monday with a Topeka animal cruelty investigator to find justice for Porsche.
If you know who did this to Porsche, you can contact Nikeno's Second Chances, Inc. in Denver.

Vets say Porsche is recovering nicely, but just to be sure, they want to keep her in foster care for about another month.
