Three dogs abandoned near Salisbury power lines

SALISBURY - Three dogs have been captured and relocated to the Pope Memorial SPCA in Concord after reports that a person in a pickup truck abandoned the dogs near power lines.

Granite State Dog Recovery began receiving reports of the incident on March 10. The group was able to set up a cage, bait and a camera on a property off Oak Hill Road with the hopes of luring the dogs.

The female was trapped last week while the males were captured Tuesday.

All three were taken to the SPCA for evaluation and treatment.

"They are very skinny," said Susan Piche of Granite State Dog Recovery. They also are suspected of having mange, which will require treatment.

The female will be ready for adoption in about a week. The SPCA will likely recommend the two males stay together and will be ready for adoption in a few weeks.

It's unclear why the dogs were abandoned, Piche said.

Salisbury residents voted to disband their police department in 2011, and the town is patrolled by state police. A state police dispatcher told NH1 News there is no current investigation.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Pope Memorial SPCA in Concord at 856-8756 or Granite State Dog Recovery at 1-855-639-5678 (LOST).
