RENO, Nev. (AP) — Authorities say more than two dozen dogs were abandoned at Sun Valley Regional Park in the last two weeks.

Investigators are asking for the public’s help in identifying anyone involved in the incidents.

Washoe County Regional Animal Services officials say there were initially about 10 to 15 dogs found abandoned at the park. That number grew to 27 dogs within the last two weeks.

The Reno Gazette Journal reports that by Friday, three more dogs were captured and that pushed the total to 30.

Authorities suspect the person or people involved have been leaving the dogs at the park during the cover of darkness. They also believe the dogs may be from the same household.

Anyone with information should call (775) 322-3647 or email pets@washoecounty.us.
