LENEXA, Kan. (WIBW) -- The Kansas City-area shelter that took in a puppy that was found tied to a pole, cold, and hungry is asking for donations to help care for the little guy, who has since been named Ridge.

“Due to the severity of his condition and his medical needs, we are asking for help to give Ridge a fighting chance for a better life,” Great Plains SPCA explained in a post on Instagram.

Earlier this week, the Lenexa Police Dept. shared pictures of the light brown dog hoping to find whoever left him there. They say he was found in the 9400 of Ridgeview Rd.

Not only was he malnourished and suffering from hypothermia, but Ridge had other injuries as well. Great Plains says he was in pretty bad shape and rushed to the closest animal hospital.

Ridge has been signed over to the shelter, but he is still getting ‘round the clock care from an emergency vet, according to Great Plains.

“If you are able to help, please consider donating today. We will update Ridge’s status as we receive them,” they said.
