County: Jefferson

Disposition: Alleged

Alleged: Joshua Jones

Louisville Metro Animal Services charged Joshua Jones with cruelty to Animals after two puppies were found nearly strangled to death.

"These dogs were found in bad shape. They have harnesses on because they had collars that had been embedded into their necks," says Scally.

Scally says the playful Labradors, Apollo and Tytus, had to have their dog collars surgically removed.

Louisville Metro Police Department made the arrest.

Scally says they found out the case through an anonymous tip, and hopes more people will do the same when it comes to animal abuse.

"We have to take a stance against animal cruelty together as a community...because if we don't do it we don't do it together we don't send a strong enough message."

Looks like Apollo and Tytus will make a full recovery, however, Scally says they'd still like to keep the dogs together.

"I think that they have bonded together, they've gone through a lot of trauma and all they've had was each other and so because of that we want to try to find a home for them together."

Anyone interested in adopting the animals should contact Metro Animal Services.
