An East Ridge, Tennessee community is calling for help finding the heartless person who abandoned a dog by throwing her over the fence on January 18 in the early morning approximately 7:45 a.m. A surveillance video shows a woman driving a gold colored minivan pulling up to the East Ridge Animal Services (ERAS), pulling the dog out of the vehicle and tossing her over the fence – then driving away.
“She was outside at the shelter for about two hours before we found her. It was 13 degree weather when she was left. Due to the graphic nature of the video, it will not be shown. Due to the quality of video, we are unable to get the tag number. The pup is fine, but we would like to know who was driving this gold minivan,” the organization posted on their Facebook page asking for the community’s help.
Fortunately the puppy is fine and will soon be available for adoption. Anyone with information about the dog or the woman driving the minivan is asked to contact the shelter at 423.664.0271. It is illegal to leave an animal unattended or abandon any animal.
The person responsible for this case of animal cruelty should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
