In another tragic case of dogs left to perish from the heat in a hot car, a 65-year-old Rhode Island woman faces felony animal cruelty charges after her three dogs died.
According to Fox News, the dogs were found in a vehicle in the parking lot of a grocery store in Jamestown. The car had been left running, however the air-conditioning was not operative and the windows were shut. Temperatures outdoors exceeded 95 degrees; no water had been left for the dogs
The dogs, two Labrador retrievers, one-four-years old, one only seven months old, and a four-year-old Keeshound, could not be revived despite the efforts of bystanders and police officers.
The dogs were pronounced dead at a nearby veterinary office.
If found guilty, the owner of the dogs, Ann Garnett faces a maximum prison sentence of five years.
This is the middle of the summer. Even if your dogs give you those sad-eyed looks because they want to go for a car ride with you, leave them home!
That face! Home security video and an adorable German shepherd.
