A Patch reader has alerted the community that she found a female dog late Thursday morning in Lake Elsinore, and now it's hoped the pooch's owner will find her.
The lost animal (shown) was found around 11 a.m. near Machado and Lincoln. The person who found the dog has been in touch with Southwest Communities Animal Shelter/Animal Friends of the Valleys located at 33751 Mission Trail in Wildomar. The shelter can be reached at (951) 674-0618.
The Good Samaritan still has the dog at her home. You can reach her on Facebook here: Jessica Rojas.
"I brought her in so she doesn't get hurt or hit by a car," she posted.
