Surveillance cameras at a shelter in Alabama captured video of a dog being thrown over a fence. The disturbing incident took place on the night of September 28 at the Second Chance Shelter in Boaz. On October 1, the shelter reached out to Facebook followers for help in identifying whoever is responsible for throwing the small dog over the tall fencing.
Second Chance Shelter wrote, “We could really use your help, if anyone knows the name of the lady that dropped her. It was Wednesday night, I left at 6:42 and the dog was dropped at 6:49 p.m. We are trying to decide what course of action to take.”
The dog was dropped over a 6-foot fence into an area where other dogs were roaming free – thankfully, the dog was not injured in the fall, or attacked by the dogs who were on the shelter property.
Anyone with information about this situation is asked to call 256-561-2411.
According to WHNT News, the abandoned dog, dubbed “Desi,” is two years of age. The shelter staff encourages anyone who wants to surrender a pet to do so during business hours – it is not safe to throw an unwanted animal over the shelter fence.
