INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis man is facing animal cruelty and battery charges following a disturbance on the city’s east side.
Indianapolis Metro Police arrested Victor Glover, 50, after being called to 217 Jefferson Avenue Tuesday morning.
Glover and a 33-year-old woman were fighting over ownership of a puppy, according to IMPD liaison to Indianapolis Animal Care and Control Theresa Redmon.
The woman was injured during the fight. The rescue group 'Every Dog Counts' said they believe the puppy was thrown to the ground. Wednesday, the group said they think the puppy can hear, but still does not seem able to see.
The dog is recovering at VCA West 86th Street Animal Hospital.
Every Dog Counts is asking for donations to take care of the puppy’s veterinary bills. You can also visit the organization's Facebook page or call the puppy's vet directly if you prefer at (317) 872-0200.
