A woman, dog-sitting a friend’s pet, was arrested on Memorial Day after police had to rescue the dog from a parked car. As reported by NBC Connecticut, 26-year-old Annabelle Gonzalez allegedly left her friend’s pit bull inside of a parked car in Farmington while she went to work “for a few hours.”

The authorities were called out to the vehicle, which was parked on Executive Drive, after reports were received about a distressed dog locked inside. Responding officers found a pit bull, wearing a muzzle, laying inside of the car…the dog’s tongue was hanging out and he needed to be moved to a “cooler environment” after being left inside of the parked vehicle.

Gonzalez was arrested and she is facing a charge of cruelty to animals.

The woman who left the dog in the car had cracked two of the windows – it is critical to note that cracked windows do very little to cool the interior of a hot vehicle. If it is warm outside, leave your pets at home. If you are out and about and notice a distressed dog inside of a parked vehicle, please reach out to the authorities for help.

    Why in the world would she take the dog and leave it in the car when she goes to work? I’m glad the dog was saved from this moron!
