Police in Broward County, Florida are searching for the person responsible who severely injured a dog and leaving him trapped inside of a suitcase.

Shortly after 1 a.m. Tuesday, officers responded to  a home in Hollywood, Florida, and found a pit bull's paw sticking out of a suitcase located near an abandoned building.

Officers said they heard the dog crying inside the suitcase.


When police opened it to let the pit bull out, they discovered the animal had severe lacerations to the top of its head and body.

The dog, which has been named Ollie, was transported to the VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital where the veterinarian said the animal had been stabbed, possibly multiple times, and beaten.

Grateful Paws Dog & Cat Rescue is looking for a foster home for Ollie.

A GoFund Me account for the dog has already raised more than $17,000 in a day.

Ollie does not have a chip and was wearing a collar without a tag.
