The city of Rahway is taking action over a video showing apparent abuse of a dog.
The Kris Kelly Foundation says this happened at a dog training business in Rahway. The video appears to show a man yanking a dog over and over by the collar.

“The Construction Official issued a Notice to Vacate the premises based on violations of the Uniform Construction Code. The owners of the business immediately vacated the premises,” Giacobbe wrote in a statement.
