In Coachella, California, a heartless owner discarded a puppy in a plastic Walmart bag and then threw her into the trash. Someone rummaging through the trash heard the puppy’s helpless cries and rushed her to a local store where emergency help was summoned.
The Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation are asking for the public’s help identifying the person who abandoned this puppy and have offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.
According to the rescue organization, the puppy, now dubbed Hope, appeared as if she had been burned with a caustic substance, is missing part of her tail and is unable to walk as a result of having been beaten and assaulted. Hope is currently in an intensive care at a veterinary hospital receiving 24-hour monitoring.
Video footage from local stores in the shopping plaza are being reviewed. The puppy was found on May 5 in the early afternoon in the parking lot a the shopping center located at 49849 Harrison Street. Anyone with information is asked to contact.
