There is a $3,000 reward to find the person who left a dead dog in a crate on the West Mesa.

Earlier this week, a man found a pit bull near 118th Street and Dennis Chavez.

Bernalillo County Animal Services believes the dog had been there for a few days and died of parvo.

The dog had no collar or microchip so the county is hoping someone will come forward.

If you know who the puppy belongs to call Animal Protection of New Mexico’s cruelty hotline at (877)548-6263.
