SOUTH WINDSOR, CT (WFSB) - A dog was found fastened by its collar to a tree in South Windsor.

The Tyler Regional Animal Care Shelter posted photos of the dog to social media on Tuesday morning.

It reported that the dog was found near the Niederwerfer Wildlife Sanctuary on Monday.

Police said they responded to the area around 11 a.m. for a report of a barking dog. They learned that a Good Samaritan came upon the dog while walking their own dog.

“Officers investigated, but cameras on the local residences do not cover the area where this dog was left,” the shelter said. “We are asking for the public’s assistance for any information.”

The dog’s collar had the name “Kobe” written on it.

“Maybe your neighbor had a dog matching this description that is no longer there, or you heard someone talking about leaving this sweet boy,” the shelter said.

'Kobe' was found abandoned in South Windsor.

It asked anyone with information to call South Windsor police at 860-648-6239.

The animal advocacy group Desmond’s Army put up a $5,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and prosecution of whoever abandoned the dog.
