A Rock Hill man is accused of abandoning a dog in a foreclosed house.

Trey Jarvis Moore, 28, was charged with cruelty to animals, jail records show. He was placed in the Rock Hill city jail, where he remained Wednesday under $3,000 bond.

Someone on Tuesday reported a dog abandoned in a home in the 600 block of Montgomery Drive, according to a police report. The caller said a brown and white dog was inside the home and had been abandoned by the owner, who no longer lived in the foreclosed home.

Water and electricity had been cut off, police said, but several windows were left cracked open. They found a brown and white pit bull inside, and feces in the hallways and bedrooms.

Officers found an empty dog food bag in the living room, and the animal had no access to food or clean water, police said. The dog was seized by York County Animal Control.

Police say Moore’s name was listed on utility records for the home. Officers found him driving on East Main Street and arrested him.
