About 5:30 a.m on Wednesday. in Fort Defiance, Ohio, a couple were caught on video abandoning a dog in the humane society’s vehicle left parked outside of the Fort Defiance Humane Society. The stressed dog was found hours later, shaking and scared and too terrified to even lift up his head.

“The dog was discovered around 8:30 am, so for 2.5 hours he was in a strange vehicle, no windows down, left shaking and scared. So scared he couldn’t help but  use the restroom in the van. So scared that he was laying on the floor too terrified to peek his head up for us to see him,” the organization posted on their Facebook page.

Around 5:50 am this morning the couple in the attached video left a dog in the humane society van. The dog was discovered around 8:30 am, so for 2.5 hours he was in a strange vehicle, no windows down, left shaking and scared. So scared he couldn't help but use the restroom in the van. So scared that he was laying on the floor too terrified to peek his head up for us to see him. Do you think this okay? At least he's somewhere safe.. right? Let's look at the bigger picture. Someone left their dog (that they love?) IN A VEHICLE and WALKED AWAY. We just can't get on board with it. It is, bottom line, against the law to abandon an animal. We are here to help, absolutely. However, sometimes that means patiently waiting for a kennel to open up. This is not okay.If you think it is, then we will have to agree to disagree.Please help us identify the individuals in the video. We would like information on the dog. Is he up to date on anything? Does he like dogs, cats, kids? What's his name? Help us, help them. Speak up. Be their voice.You can contact FDHS at 419-658-2298, by email, or message us on FB.Thank you.

It is against the law to abandon an animal, no matter what crisis the owners may have been experiencing. Dogs depend on humans to care for them.

“Someone left their dog (that they love?) IN A VEHICLE and WALKED AWAY. We just can’t get on board with it. It is, bottom line, against the law to abandon an animal. We are here to help, absolutely. However, sometimes that means patiently waiting for a kennel to open up. This is not okay,” they continued.

The Fort Defiance Humane Society is asking for the public’s help identifying the people who abandoned this young dog. More information could be added as to how current his vaccinations are, how he gets along with other dogs and cats and what is his name?

Be the voice for those who cannot speak. Contact the FDHS at 419.658.2298 or message the organization through messaging on Facebook.

    PLEASE help this dear sweet little guy! It seems he was probably “abused” before “abandoned”! Are donations needed!
