LEWISTON, Maine - Police are looking for the person or people that abandoned a dog outside a closed animal shelter before it was hit and killed by a car three days later.

The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society said a yellow lab mix was "dumped outside of the Humane Society" on Monday evening.

Staff and volunteers have been actively searching for the dog for three days before it was found hit by a car.

The Humane Society and police are looking to figure out who dropped this dog off at the facility.

Officials say if you have any leads, please contact Animal Control through the Lewiston, Maine Police Department.

Here's security footage of the abandonment.

As you many of you know, our staff and volunteers have been actively searching for this dog that was abandoned outside of our facility on Monday evening. Unfortunately during our morning search the dog was found hit by a car near the off ramp of the bridge. A sad morning here at GAHS with the passing of this dog, but we are determined to figure out who dropped this dog off at our facility. If you have any leads, please contact Animal Control through the police department. Thank you to our staff, volunteers and members of the public who helped us try to bring this dog back to safety. You are all greatly appreciated.
