Workers at the Southern Cross Animal Rescue in Laurel need your help finding the person responsible for neglecting two hunting dogs.

Shelter workers said the dogs were emaciated and had been without food or water for more than month.

One of the dogs suffered a a major spinal injury, and it's still unclear if the dog will make a full recovery, workers said.

SCAR Founder Heather Heather Williams said they see an increase in hunting dogs being neglected around this time every year.
