In Wilmer, Texas, a rescue organization has offered a $200 reward for information leading to the identity of the owner who abandoned a small dog on a highway and then drove away.

According to Dallas Dog – Rescue.Rehab.Reform, this little dog’s life didn’t have to end this way – a victim of animal cruelty and abuse as she likely chased after her family after they deserted her.

“One of the shelter volunteers posted this please share this post we want to find the owner. Please do not dump your dog there are options. It sucks this girl had a chance at another life! The owner tried to do the right thing, but was turned away! Why was she turned away because she lives in another town,” the rescue organization posted on their social media page.

A Good Samaritan found the dog lying on the side of the road on Monday and waited for help to come; the rescue named her Mireya. Reports stated earlier in the day, the dog had been a happy pooch owned by a woman in her 30s and accompanied by a teen who tried to surrender the dog to a nearby shelter. Sadly, they were turned away because they were not residents of the city of Wilmer.

And on Belt Line Road, after leaving the shelter, the two heartless people either stopped their vehicle and let the dog out, or rolled down a window and threw her out on the road. Still wearing a rope around her neck attached to a pink leash, something terrible had then happened to the tiny dog, and in a pile of leaves along the side of the road, Mireya suffered in great pain. As the rescuer carefully picked her up and wrapped her in a blanket, Mireya screamed in pain as she bled from her backside and her broken, little body.

Rushed to the emergency veterinarian clinic, the staff tried their best, but the news of her condition was devastating. Mireya’s spine had been severed, and her injuries too severe to enjoy any quality of life, the difficult decision was made to let her go.

Please share the message that there are always options! Don’t dump your dog on the side of the road.

Many thanks to DALLAS DOGRRR – Rescue.Rehab.Reform, a group of dedicated, animal loving volunteers that help rescue dogs all over the state of Texas.

Rest in peace little one.

    Beyond disgusting, heartbreaking and cruel…….

    The POS who did this cruel action has earned themselves a reserved spot in the hottest part of Hell for eternity.

    Precious little treasure, I know that you are absolutely in Heaven. Please look for MacKitty and join his wonderful snuggle buddies group and RIP amongst loving friends.
