WARNING: Details and photos in this story may be disturbing to some.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Police arrested a man on charges of animal cruelty after a dog was found frozen to death and thrown away in a dumpster.

The investigation began on Wednesday when volunteers with Friends of Indianapolis Dogs Outside (FIDO) responded to a home in the 2400 block of East 10th Street to check on the welfare of a dog left outside.

“There’s no excuse for letting this happen,” said Darcie Kurtz with FIDO. “There’s no reason to leave that dog out there to suffer and die.”

Kurtz was first to discover the frozen dog dead inside the dumpster on Wednesday.

“It was really underweight. It looked like it had frozen. It was in bad shape. It had suffered and died,” said Kurtz.

Gordon Turentine, 62, said it was a female dog named Remy. He said he owned Remy for 10 years before he found her frozen in the doghouse that morning, and then he placed her in the dumpster.

According to court records, a neighbor and the homes landlord both say they warned Remy’s owner to bring the dog inside on Tuesday, knowing sub-zero temperatures could prove deadly.

“It’s heartbreaking because this was a callous case of indifference,” said Kurtz. “He had to have known his dog was going to suffer and die. He was a sick underweight dog in sub-zero temps. Of course the dog was going to suffer and die.”
