Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA Investigates Dog Abuse in Chino Hills

November 8, 2017 Chino Hills, CA – A 3 year old Dachshund mixed breed dog with apparent signs of abuse was brought to the Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA on Wednesday, November 8, 2017.

On Tuesday, November 7th the Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA responded to a call from at the 5700 block of Park Drive for a dog that was repeatedly being doused with boiling water.

Upon arrival, Officer William Taber met with Sherriff Deputies to review a video taken by two good Samaritans of the dog’s owner throwing liquid on the dog. Witnesses described seeing the man throwing hot water on the dog on at least five different occasions.

The man was arrested for animal cruelty and the Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA Officer immediately rescued the dog and transported her for emergency veterinary care.

The dog is currently being cared for by Inland Valley Humane Society veterinarians while the investigation is ongoing.
