BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Medical care came too late for two dogs in Buffalo, both found after being abandoned last week.
Despite all of the efforts to save Kenny, the SPCA says the cocker spaniel had to be euthanized over the weekend.
But it is not the final chapter of a sad chain of events for the dog.
The severely neglected and malnourished animal was found outside the Anderson Inner City Animal Hospital on Wednesday.
It had been hanging around the clinic, the owner of the clinic, Doctor Hector Anderson told News 4, the dog did not appear to be injured.
Dr. Anderson is under fire for not taking Kenny in.
And now SPCA Executive Director Barbara Carr has filed a complaint against Dr. Anderson with New York State.
Carr said, "The only thing we can do is turn this over to the State Education Department and ask them through their professional discipline department to investigate this case and hopefully they will find that there is reason to bring charges through the NYS Veterinary Board."
"I have filed paperwork beginning last Wednesday and I will continue to file any evidence that I have."
News 4 placed a call to Dr. Anderson's office Monday afternoon.
He has not called News 4 back.
The story has struck such a chord with western New Yorkers.
Barbara Carr tells News 4 an SPCA volunteer has even donated a burial plot at a local pet cemetery to give Kenny a respectable final resting place.
There is sad news about a dog discovered outside a veterinary office in Buffalo.
SPCA officials tell News 4, Kenny, a Cocker Spaniel had to be put to sleep Saturday.
The 3 year old was found outside Dr. Hector Anderson's clinic on Tuesday.
It's believed he was lying there for more than 24 hours before he received any help.
Kenny was badly dehydrated and suffered from internal injuries.
