The Lee County Sheriff’s Office said that the dog that was found on Feb.26 with its mouth shut with electrical tape is recovering. 

The dog has been seen by a veterinarian and is resting comfortably at Lee County Domestic Animal Services, deputies said.

Even Sheriff Carmine Marceno found a few moments, to say hello to Chance.

The reward for information in the case has increased to $14,500. “There has been an outpouring of concern and support for Chance, coupled with a strong desire to see the person responsible for inflicting his injuries to be identified and arrested,” said Trish Routte, Crime Stoppers Coordinator.  “While the reward money is a motivator for some, we hope that anyone who has information on this crime will come forward because it’s the right thing to do.”

Anyone with information on the abuse of Chance is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).
