Animal Neglect (Photo) - 02/08/19

Case # 19-27261

Charge: Animal Neglect in the First Degree

Suspect: Dallas Urig, 29 year old Bend resident


On February 25th, 2019, a puppy was delivered to the Humane Society of Central Oregon (HSCO) with substantial facial injuries.  The puppy was immediately transferred to veterinary care where it was determined he had multiple skull fractures and an orbital fracture.  The Bend Police Department was advised of the substantial injuries due to suspicion that the puppy had received the injuries as a result of abuse.

The person who delivered the puppy to HSCO, identified as Dallas Urig, initially denied ownership of the puppy and that he had located the puppy near the Pavilion the night before. Through investigation, it was determined that Dallas Urig was the owner of the puppy and he had failed to provide veterinary care that the puppy urgently needed after sustaining injuries by another dog in his household.

On February 7th, Urig was arrested for Animal Neglect in the First Degree, for failing to immediately seek veterinary care for the serious physical injury to the puppy.  

The puppy is resting well and any long-term effects from the injuries are yet to be determined.  At this time, the puppy is still under medical care, and is not available for adoption.  Any information regarding adoption will be released at a later date.  

The Bend Police Department would like to thank our local veterinary partners and the community for their support in this case.  We would also like to remind the community that as a pet owner, there are certain responsibilities that must be met in order to provide “minimum necessary care” under Oregon law.  Please see links below for more information.
