Officer C. Morris of the Riverside, California, Animal Control Unit got a call to check on a report of a pet left in a parked car on a hot and sunny day.
She arrived on the scene to hear tiny cries coming from inside a white Impala with its windows open only about an inch on each side.
When she looked inside her heart broke – she found a pitbull puppy that was around 8-10 weeks old. It was extremely hot out that day and things could have ended poorly.
Officier Morris immediately called her superior, Sergeant Gates.
Thank goodness the officers, C. Morris and D. Gates could get the puppy out of the vehicle.
The owner was fined $140 and said he’d never leave a dog in a hot vehicle again.
It breaks and angers our hearts to read stories like this one. But stories like this also remind us that there are many good, caring people in the world, like the officers who saved this dog from a vehicle-turned-oven, and the kind people at the veterinary hospital who gave it a bath, a fan, and water to help the tiny creature recover.
