Puppy Reportedly Locked in Hot Car Trunk While Owners Shopped Deserves Justice

Target: Glenn Hess, State Attorney for Bay County, Florida

Goal: Punish the couple who allegedly hit a puppy and then locked her in a car trunk on a hot day.

A puppy was allegedly hit and then thrown into a car trunk in a horrific case of animal cruelty. Per witness testimony, the suspects then left the puppy locked in the hot trunk while they went to the mall. Demand justice for this innocent puppy.

Multiple good Samaritans contacted the Panama City Police Department after they witnessed a couple allegedly abusing a puppy and then locking her inside of a hot car trunk. Police arrived and immediately began tearing apart the car from the inside, removing luggage and seats in order to reach the panting puppy. The puppy was reportedly locked inside of a crate much too small for her and appeared to be overheated, but thankfully still alive. Police found the owners inside of the mall and arrested them.

Animal control took custody of the puppy and she is doing well. Maurice Sanders and Keshanna Thompson were each charged with felony aggravated animal cruelty and they are being held on a $10,000 bond. Sign below to demand that Sanders and Thompson receive the maximum penalty possible by law, if convicted.


Dear State Attorney Hess,

A puppy reportedly suffered inside of a baking car trunk for 30 minutes while her owners browsed in a mall. Per witness accounts, the owners hit the puppy and then roughly threw her into the trunk just before leaving her to overheat. We demand justice for this poor puppy.

Panama City police charged Maurice Sanders and Keshanna Thompson with aggravated animal cruelty after they allegedly left a puppy inside of a hot car trunk while they shopped in a mall. Good Samaritans contacted police after they reportedly witnessed Sanders and Thompson throw the puppy into the trunk and leave her behind. Police tore the car apart, finally reaching the trunk and the small crate containing the panting puppy. Animal Control took custody of the puppy and she is doing well. Sanders and Thompson are being held on $10,000 bond.

This alleged abuse must be punished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
