A $5,000 reward is being offered in the case of a “severely neglected” dog that was founcd abandoned on a Ronkonkoma street and had to be euthanized, the SPCA said Wednesday.

Suffolk County SPCA Chief Roy Gross said that on Tuesday the agency received a call from a veterinary hospital about a young, female pit bull with a distinctive collar that was found in a wooded area of Peconic Street, severely emaciated and in critical condition.
