A Canandaigua man is accused of abandoning a dog in the Town of Hopewell.
The Ontario County Humane Society says 37-year-old Timothy Morgan let a 7-month-old Greyhound mix named Bella loose, after attempting to drop her off at a nearby shelter.
The shelter was apparently unable to take Bella, because she was adopted from a separate shelter just a few days prior to the alleged incident.
Bella was found near a home on Straw Road in Hopewell, and was taken to the the Humane Society shelter, where she’ll one again be placed up for adoption.
Morgan has been charged with animal abandonment.
