HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Two dogs were abandoned in the “freezing cold” at a dog park in Hillsborough Sunday night, police say.
The two dogs were discovered when police heard “barking coming from freezing cold Gold Park,” officials said in a Facebook post.
Officers investigated and found two dogs locked inside the fence at the dog park. The dogs did not have collars, but “appeared to be friendly and well-cared for,” police said.
The dogs were rescued by Orange County Animal Services, according to officials.
Police said they are not sure why the dogs were abandoned.
