Justice for Dog Abandoned in Trash Bag in Sweltering Heat

Target: Vincent Price, Woodhaven Police Chief

Goal: Identify and charge person who abandoned dog in a trash bag in high temperatures and ensure they are punished to the full extent of the law.

Footage from outside an animal shelter shows a woman abandoning a dog in a crate inside a plastic trash bag outside of the closed facility. The two-year-old Yorkshire terrier was thankfully found by an employee of the Woodhaven and Trenton Animal Shelter, or else he would have likely died a horrific death, suffocating from the heat trapped inside the crate and trash bag.

On top of being abandoned in such a life-threatening and heartless manner, the dog was suffering from an injury to its back leg, matted fur and fleas. The individual responsible for this abuse must not only be immediately found and charged, she must also receive the highest punishment possible for this act of extreme cruelty, including a hefty fine and considerable jail time. It is also vital that this person be banned from keeping pets for life to ensure no other animal suffers this callous cruelty.

Sign this petition urging authorities to quickly find and charge this woman with animal abuse, as well as do everything in their power to ensure she is severely punished by law.


Dear Chief Price,

Please do everything in your power to urgently identify and charge the person responsible for inflicting horrible suffering to a young Yorkshire terrier. The animal was abandoned outside an animal shelter, confined to a crate inside a plastic trash bag. Because of extremely high temperatures, the dog would have suffocated to death had a shelter employee not found him in time.

I urge you to find the person responsible and ensure he or she receives a hefty fine and jail sentence, as well as a lifetime ban on keeping pets, to protect other animals from having to endure this kind of callous cruelty.
