Police in Denver say a neighbor tweeted this photo of a dog seen curled up near a sliding glass door in sub-freezing temperatures. The neighbor also tweeted the photo to 7NEWS who responded and aired a story on their website. The Neighbor, Tonnee Lawrence tweeted the following: “What can we do? Called 311 & animal control, owners arent home 5°F #cowx #viral #help,”
Concerned people immediately started retweeting the photo. Lawrence gave 7 NEWS the dog’s address, which we passed on to Denver Police. At 8:44 a.m., Denver Police said animal control was aware of the situation and that the dog had shelter available.
