County: York

Disposition: Alleged

Alleged: Rachel Patrice Reaves

A Rock Hill woman turned herself into authorities after allegedly abandoned a dog that was near death when authorities found it.

Rachel Patrice Reaves, 29, of 2000 Lavington Court, turned herself into police, officials said.

Police responded to a complaint of an abandoned dog at 722 Carolina Ave. in Rock Hill on Wednesday. York County Animal Control officials had already picked up the dog, which was emaciated, according to a Rock Hill Police report.

The complainant said the animal was found chained in the back yard. Officers noted that the dog had no water or adequate shelter in the back yard.

Reaves was evicted on Feb. 10. The animal remained in the back yard for five days chained up, during which the temperature dropped to below freezing, the report said.

Officers believed the animal would have died of exposure and starvation had it not been found.
