Woman arrested - two puppies died after being left in parked car

Puppies died after woman left them in sweltering hot parked car

Two puppies have died and a third is fighting for his life after a woman left them inside of a sweltering, hot parked car. According to Florida’s Orange County Sheriff’s Office, a woman visiting from Mississippi left three puppies inside of a vehicle which was parked outside of a motel in Orange County.

The woman is identified as 54-year-old Penelope Stanley, and she is facing felony animal cruelty charges as a result of her actions. On Tueday, the Sheriff’s Office wrote:

If you leave pets in a car and they are harmed or die, we will arrest you for felony animal cruelty.

This woman, visiting from Mississippi, left three puppies in a Dodge Durango. Temperatures in Central Florida today are in the high 90s. A 6-month-old Chihuahua named “Minnie” died in that vehicle. Three-month-old Shepherd mix “Kiara” is not doing too well. We hope 6-month-old “Gruff,” a terrier mix, will be OK.

A subsequent post explained that Kiara died. The authorities stated:

UPDATE: Sadly, Kiara has also died. Please keep Gruff in your thoughts.

The surviving puppy is in the care of Orange County Animal Services.

It has been said time and again – do not leave pets locked inside of cars on warm days. The temperature climbs quickly and cracked windows do little to help alleviate the heat.

    My Dad always said: “Common sense is not so common” & “You can fix many things, but you cannot fix “stupid””…….
    I am very sorry that these poor puppies paid for their owner’s stupidity with their lives…….
    Poor treasures, I am completely heartbroken over your senseless deaths. You were totally failed by your human, the one person who absolutely should have protected you from harm…..

    Those poor puppies. Is this woman really THAT stupid that she would leave 3 little pups to die in a hot car? Total irresponsibility. What was she even doing with them? I’m glad she was arrested now lets give her a punishment befitting of the crime!
