UPDATE: A YouCaring campaign is up for Thomas the puppy.
The puppy was found in the area of Peck Drive and Harley Way, near Florin Road.
The citizen who brought the puppy in assumed he had been hit by a car but x-rays show clear blunt force trauma to the puppy's head, which the shelter believes is a result of cruelty.
The puppy has a significant amount of head swelling and appears malnourished.
The shelter is asking for the public's help in identifying the puppy and possible owner.
Tips can be reported at 311.
