Pima Animal Care Center is investigating two stray dogs that came into the shelter after they were found on the 1600 block of East Virginia Street. 

Both animals came in together two days ago and were very thin with wounds on their face, neck, legs, and ears.

"Our one friend not only had the scars you can see on his face but he had maggots in one of the wounds on the face suggesting that it was an old wound infected," said Dr. Karyn Wesley. 

The dogs are currently receiving medical treatment at the center.

"We are really looking for information to say if anybody knows who these dogs are, who the owner is so we can start to put some of those pieces together," said Adam Ricci with PACC.
