The Moore Humane Society was notified Tuesday evening of a loose dog in the area of E. Indiana Avenue and Halcyon Drive in Southern Pines.
The staff set a dog trap to try to catch her, so they could keep the animal safe. The staff found the dog Wednesday morning deceased from being hit by a vehicle.
The Moore Humane Society is planning to have the dog cremated, but they are trying to reach out in case there is an owner looking for her.
The young dog is a mixed breed who weighed 30-35 pounds. She wasn’t micro-chipped and had a black nylon collar with no tags. The Humane Society is asking anyone who knows the dog’s family to please contact them quickly as possible at 910-947-2631.
