KENT, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — The Putnam County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was seeking information Saturday on whoever abandoned a dog in the Town of Kent.

On Friday morning, the un-neutered male Yorkshire terrier was found near White Pond and Farmers Mills roads in Kent, police said.

A passerby contacted police, who sent a Kent Dog Control officer to retrieve the dog.

The dog was found in a small black metal pet crate next to a snowy patch of property just off the side of the road, police said. The dog was described as being between 4 and 6 years old.

The SPCA was asking anyone with information about the dog or who might have dumped the animal in freezing temperatures to contact the agency at (845) 520-6915. Calls can be anonymous.

Animal abandonment in New York State is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison and a fine of up to $1,000.
