    A dog found trapped on a railroad bridge in Delaware is looking for its owner — or a new home. 

    State animal welfare officials say the terrified dog was rescued on Sunday from the bridge over the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. A family on a bicycle outing spotted the dog. 

    The female blonde beagle was trapped on a platform between the bridge and a concrete support brace. Rescuers say the dog was uninjured. 

    The beagle was taken to Brandywine Valley SPCA in New Castle. She will be held for at least three days for her owner to claim her before being made available for adoption.

    More than 53,000 pets were adopted through the 2016 Clear the Shelters campaign, a nationwide push to place deserving animals in forever homes. Join the conversation on social media using #ClearTheShelters.
