Police in Weathersfield Township are trying to find out who shot a dog in the face and why.

An officer was called to Lake Park Mobile Home development on Valencia Drive late Thursday after someone found the wounded dog, according to police chief Michael Naples.

Jason Cooke, who runs the Healthy Hearts and Paws Project says his organization was contacted by police for help.

Cooke says the dog’s owner doesn’t have enough money not pay the veterinarian, so Healthy Hearts is covering the cost of treatment at MedVet in Akron.

Healthy Hearts and Paws is seeking donations to cover the cost of treatment.
