The South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter reported the “horrific act of cruelty” Coco endured to the Vineland Police Department. The Facebook post also includes photos of the brown and white canine.

Those who recognize Coco or know anything about how the animal ended up discarded and soaked in urine should contact the Vineland Police Department at 856-691-4111.
