When a volunteer at an Animal Shelter saw a car stopping at the side of a San Antonio street and one of the three women that were in the car starting to throw her 4 dogs out the car, she couldn’t help but intervene. She tried talking to the woman, telling her the consequences of her actions and that she will have to pay $500 for each abandoned dog. She even told her that if she can’t take care of her dogs, she can take them to the Animals Care Services, which were just a few minutes away from the point that they were at the moment. Not only the woman ignored her and her advice, but she violently pushed the dogs out of the car and drove off as fast as she could. As they were driving away, the third woman that was sitting at the back of the car showed her the middle finger.
Deciding to dump her 4 dogs
This woman shown in the video decided to dump her 4 dogs somewhere in San Antonio, Texas.
A volunteer at an animal shelter confronted her
The woman told her that she can drop the dogs off at the animal care services instead of just dumping them in the middle of nowhere.
The woman seemed a bit torn
The owner of the dogs seemed torn about what to do, but it looked like the driver of the car convinced her to continue her job.
The volunteer informed her of the consequences of her actions
The volunteer told her about the $500 fine for each abandoned dog and gave her directions on how to drive the dogs to the animals care services if she couldn’t take care of them anymore.
The volunteer tried to make her be sensitive to what the dogs wanted
The dogs seemed confused and not knowing what was happening. At first, they thought that were going for a walk, but they later realized that they were abandoned.
The woman pushed the last dog out of the car and the car drove off
The volunteer informed the authorities after the car left and they were able to locate 3 of the 4 dogs. Luckily, the owner of the dogs found the fourth one and turned herself in.
The Texas law about abandoning an animal
In Texas, a person who abandones an animal can be sentenced up to 1 year in jail and has to pay a fine of $4,000.
The woman at the back of the seat showed the volunteer the middle finger
This woman will be one of the people around the world who will have to pay the price for abandoning their pets, but there are so many other people who are walking free after doing such an inexcusable thing. Laws should become harder and people should stop getting pets if they are unwilling to commit to their needs.
