Luzerne County animal refuge looking for owner of severely malnourished dog


FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — Blue Chip Farm Animal Refuge needs your help in identifying the owner of a malnourished coonhound that was found in the Sweet Valley area of Luzerne County Sunday. 

The animal refuge, which has been calling the dog Duke, said that he was found severely malnourished and is having a difficult time walking. He was brought to the animal refuge with hopes he can be cared for from this point forward.

They say as of Monday, Duke is already moving better after having been bathed, fed and hydrated.

“Ultimately our goal right now is to just to get him healthy, get him um all the vet work that need to be done, and get him adopted, or if there is an owner out there for them to reach out to us. His post got a lot of views, but we haven’t heard anything yet, so we’re not sure if anyone is going to claim him,” said Emma Ripka, a senior volunteer with Blue Chip Animal Refuge.

If you recognize Duke, please contact Blue Chip Farm Animal Rescue on Facebook or by calling 570-333-5265.
