Dying Dog Left for Dead on Allen Street [Updated]

Calling all animal shelters and the ASPCA. Not long ago, a reader sent in a distressing email about a dog abandoned on Allen Street. Apparently the sickly canine was chained to a sign post just outside of Reed Space, and has been there for at least the last hour.
From the mailbag:
I have been trying to get a hold of the ASPCA for the past hour. There is a dog that looks like it is about to pass away any minute, clearly very very ill tied up to a bike lock on the street. The dog has been there for over an hour and a half and is visibly injured, starved, and barely hanging on. Its stomach looks as though there is a basketball sized tumor that has ruptured. It is the saddest thing I have ever witnessed.
I called 911 they told me to ASPCA and I have been on hold for over an hour.
UPDATE: the ASPCA arrived and took the dog away.
