Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA Investigates Pit bull beaten by owner after man crashed car in Ontario

June 12, 2018, Ontario, CA – On Monday, June 11th, the Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA was called to the scene of a car crash at Chino Avenue in Ontario after reports of a man beating his dog.

The animal owner was driving down Archibald Avenue in Ontario when he crashed his car. He then proceeded to exit his vehicle with the dog and began striking the dog in the middle of street.
The dog owner drove off, fleeing the scene and abandoning the dog in the street.

A Good Samaritan picked up the dog and put the 2 year old Pit Bull mixed breed in his car and attempted to follow the owner when he crashed again, this time causing serious injuries. The animal owner was taken to the hospital. Animal cruelty charges will be made against the animal owner.

IVHS & SPCA was called to assist the animal and take custody of the animal.

The dog is currently being cared for by shelter veterinarians at the Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA. The dog, who staff are calling “Eddie” is under protective custody and will remain under the Inland Valley Humane Society’s care pending the investigation.
