In Wentzville, Missouri, a young woman and her boyfriend were so distraught after finding two dogs in distress inside of a hot car at the Wentzville Flea Market, they decided to shoot a video when police told them there was nothing they could do to help the dogs since the vehicle’s windows had been left open.

It happened on Sunday morning when Kendra spotted the dogs panting heavily in the car. There was barely any water left in their bowl, and so Kendra put new water in it for the dogs. The shepherd cried as he panted heavily, and the second dog tried to hide away from the sun and the heat under the steering column.
“Guys, thank you for sharing and thank you so much for your support. I did buy water and had them drink all of the bottles. They were miserable. I would have taken the dogs but there were police at the flea market. I told him that I was going to take matters into my own hands and he said that if I took the pups that it could potentially lead into a felony charge because I would be stealing from personal property. I’m sorry that I couldn’t do more but my sister and I are working to take these people down! I promise I am trying.”
And so she decided to post the video on Facebook. So far it has garnered nearly 400,000 views. Kendra was at the flea market for four hours, and when she returned to give the dogs more water, the car and the dogs were gone.
In an update on the situation, Kendra thanked everyone for the information. It is hoped the owners will surrender the dogs.
“My next step is to gather a group of people to decently go to the premises, if and when we can 100% establish where this is and ask for the surrender of the dogs, next is to get an animal rescue to take them in and get them the proper care they need! I also have had news reporters contact me to gather this story. Social media can be used for the greater good and look at what ALL of us have done! This is truly amazing and I’m just astonished by the outcome so far. Thank you thank you thank you! Hopefully soon our minds can be out at ease. I will further update when I can. Thank you all for your time and patience.”
Leave your pets home in the summer. Even though the windows were open, it was easy to see the dogs were in distress.
