She posted a photo of the dog Thursday night on her Facebook page – called Help Molly Get Home.

With the help of donors, Mead made the required arrangements to get Molly out of the city shelter, where the dog had been staying since being found Monday morning.

Mead said she had been looking for Molly for three days before the animal was found Monday morning in western Duluth. Her front legs were zip-tied together. Mead stated Tuesday on Facebook that she was the owner of the dog and knew who had tied its legs together.

Police at the time said the dog would remain at the city shelter until an investigation was complete.

Mead has said the story behind the incident is complicated and she wouldn’t discuss details until police finished the case.
