The woman accused of dumping a gravely ill puppy alongside a road in Texas has been arrested. According to ABC 13 News, Baytown resident Donna Elaine Hubbard, 39, is believed to be the woman in the viral video showing the puppy being discarded on a road. She was arrested on Thursday.

Gravely ill puppy abandoned

The puppy, dubbed Republic, was near death when she was rescued in mid-May. She was taken under the wing of the Chip N Snip rescue group and required round-the-clock veterinary care for weeks; she was diagnosed with sepsis and malnutrition. After recuperating from being critically ill, she was finally able to leave the veterinary hospital and go to a home.

Accused woman facing charges

The woman accused of dumping Republic on the road is facing multiple charges, including  two counts of animal cruelty, including abandonment and failure to provide care. Hubbard is now in jail. The authorities have stated that the video taken by the good Samaritans who confronted her was beneficial in the case; it ultimately led to her identification and arrest.

Taking animal cruelty crimes seriously

Baytown PD Lt. Steve Dorris commented on the change in people’s attitudes about animal cruelty – he stated:

“People’s attitudes have changed about animals and how they should be treated.”

Helping abandoned dogs and cruelty victims

The rescue group has a fundraiser set up to help dogs like Republic who have been abandoned, neglected and/or abused. Click here to learn more.

    Donna Elaine Hubbard should be hogtied, taken out into the hot Texas desert and dumped – let the animals feast off her useless body – she deserves no less. I do say a HUGE THANK you to the good Samaritans who videoed and confronted this bitch for stepping up to rescue a helpless innocent dog who surely would have died if not for them.

    Thanks to the person who took the video and confronted this cretin. Having this type of evidence sealed the case against her. She should suffer just as she made her dog suffer except she should not be rescued. Hope she has to pay all the medical expenses for this dog. That would be a good punishment and hit her where it hurts.

    The Humane Society , Penny Elms, Ladyfreethinker , HSUS , ASPCA, PETA or Pet Rescue Report and any private person could post a money award payable to any person who reports dumping and abandoning a dog–ill or not. The $$ money can be paid to the person reporting when a arrest is made by police. Gaining arrests for this crime will make it happen less often. I have read comments that dogs are dumped in certain places.
