There are many people who are very passionate about helping dogs. It doesn’t matter if it is their own pet or if it is an animal that is left in a shelter, they want to do what they can to make them feel comfortable, happy and loved.
Unfortunately, there are also some irresponsible people who don’t have any regard for animals. They typically buy them on impulse and, at some point in the future, they will throw them away as if they were worthless. I have to admit, this has always made me upset but when I saw this video, I didn’t know whether to be angry or to cry at what happened.
This took place in San Antonio, Texas and the woman shooting the video was trying to stop a terrible event from happening. She looked outside of her home and saw a woman in a parking lot attempting to drop her 4 dogs off and leave them behind. She did what she should have done, she confronted her and shot a video at the same time.
It was a desperate plea from this good Samaritan that really pulls at our heartstrings. She stated what the consequences would be for the animals if this woman did what she intended to do. Even though she gave some very good direction, the woman in the car continued to do the deed. She left them out of the car and then simply drove away. As she did so, one of her passengers even gave her the finger!
Authorities were alerted to the situation and 3 of the dogs were recovered and delivered to a local animal shelter. The fourth dog remained elusive. The woman ended up having a change of heart and she did come back to help find the dog. She then proceeded to turn herself in. The consequences? She could end up with a $4000 fine and a year in jail for each of her 4 dogs.
It is our sincere hope that this story and video will touch somebody’s heart and keep them from doing this to their pet.
This video was captured in Texas by a woman who saw what was going on right outside of her home.
She tried to intervene when this woman was abandoning her dogs in a parking lot.
She gave a clear warning about what would happen to the dogs. She even told her how to get to the shelter.
This heartless woman continued to do the deed.
She then drove away.
The dogs didn’t even know what just happened. They just seemed excited to be outside.
Gradually, they began to realize they were alone.
Someone in the back seat even gave the finger as the car drove away.
3 of the dogs were found after authorities were alerted. The fourth dog was still missing.
Fortunately, the former owner came back to help locate the fourth animal.
She faces a fine of up to $4000 and a year in county jail for each of the dogs she dropped off that day.
