EAST PROVIDENCE — The East Providence Animal Control is seeking the public’s help in identifying the owner of dog.

On March 16, East Providence police responded to Rumford Pets at 865 Warren Ave. for a report of a dog found.

On that day, an unidentified couple brought a small black dog in a crate to pet shop and told the staff that they had found the abandoned dog in the crate somewhere. The couple did not provide any additional information on where the dog was found.

The East Providence Animal Control is seeking the public’s help in identifying the dog and/or identifying the couple as the EPAC would like to gather more information from the couple about where the dog was found.
