Sad to even hear of these cases, when she could have easily brought the dogs to a shelter. More here.
A good Samaritan from San Antonio, Texas, tried to intervene in just a situation. When she saw a woman throwing her 4 dogs out of the car in a vacated lot, she confronted the offender. In the recording she took, we can hear her clearly stating the consequences that may follow if the woman did indeed decide to ditch her pets.
The kind Samaritan tried desperately to reason with the dog-abandoner, but even after being given directions to animal care services the heartless woman proceeded to dump her dogs and drive away in the most infuriating manner. One of her passengers even had the gall to flip the bird to the camera.
After authorities were informed, three of the dogs were found and delivered to an animal shelter. But the 4th dog was missing. Luckily however, the callous ex-owner of these pets had a change of heart and helped to locate the last dog. She turned herself in after delivering the last dog to Animal care services. According to Texas law, an individual convicted of abandoning an animal may be sentenced to up to a year in county jail, and a fine of up to $4,000.
Let’s hope that this whole sorry episode will teach her, and other people, to take responsibility for their pets.
