The "Good Samaritan" credited with saving the life of a dog apparently abandoned at a metro car wash now is facing charges in connection with the case.

On Friday, June 28th, Kenneth Harrison told authorities with the Nebraska Humane Society he had found a small black dog in a dumpster at a car wash near 70th and Maple Streets.

On Saturday NHS investigators cited Harrison for making the story up and lying to investigators.

Harrison's story allegedly started to unravel when his neighbors contacted The Nebraska Humane Society and told investigators the dog in question was Harrison's.

Investigators allege the real reason Harrison brought the dog into the NHS was based on housetraining issues and he was concerned he may be fined for not property licensing his dog with authorities.

The Nebraska Humane Society says Harrison did not need to fabricate the story, "He simply could have brought the dog to NHS and given the truthful reason for why he wanted to surrender it." There is no fee for surrendering a pet to the NHS but a small fee is requested, not required.

Based on Harrison's alleged lie, a number of people have donated money to the NHS.

Those people will be contacted and offered a refund of their donation.
