MORROW, Ga. (WXIA) -- Clayton County authorities have secured a warrant for the man they say abandoned two dogs at a Morrow County home, which were later found on the brink of death.
Both the Clayton County Police Department and Animal Control Unit put out warrants for the arrest of 46-year-old Matthew Darnell Jeffries, after they determined he was the one who left two dogs named Dreamer and Love chained in the backyard of a home on Denson Boulevard. Jeffries had been a person of interest since the beginning of the case.
