GALESBURG, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

The Knox County Humane Society has dealt with multiple cases of animal neglect and abandonment recently, and believes they may be connected.

The Humane Society said a dog found abandoned on a road between Alpha and New Windsor is likely linked to a similar neglect case from a few weeks ago.Knox County Humane Society Director Erin Buckmaster told WQAD-TV in Moline the first dog found later died of organ failure.

Fortunately, a Good Samaritan picked up this dog and brought it to the no-kill shelter in Galesburg.

Anyone with information on the dogs is asked to call the Knox County Humane Society or Knox County Animal Control at at (309) 342-1275.
