A good Samaritan was in the right place, at the right time, to help a dog who was injured by a cruel person who threw her from a moving car. According to It Takes a Village No-Kill Rescue in Evansville, Indiana, the dog was hit by another car after being thrown from the first vehicle. The rescue organization wrote:
We received a call tonight after someone saw this little girl being thrown from a car and then ran over on Diamond Ave. She was rushed to St. Joe Vet and then transferred to the All Pet Emergency Clinic with head trauma and seizures.
On October 7, the rescue group provided an update on the injured dog, writing:
UPDATE ON DOG THROWN FROM VAN LAST NIGHT. We just picked up Peach from the ER Vet. She made it through the night. She is named Peach in honor of the Good Samaritan who rushed her to the vet (her child picked the name Princess Peach). We are transferring her to St. Joe Vet for continued care. She is not out of the woods yet but has not had another seizure so that’s good news. Thanks to our friends at Petunia’s Resale for Rescue who paid for the initial vet visit yesterday at St. Joe Vet!
According to the rescue agency, animal control is investigating the situation, and a reward is being offered for information about who is responsible. There is little information about the vehicle, aside from the fact that it was a mini-van. The group said:
However, we have little information other than it was a gray mini-van going west on Diamond Avenue near Highway 65 around 3 pm. Petunia’s Resale for Rescue is offering a $500 reward for any information leading to arrest of the person who threw her out the window. If you have any information, please contact Evansville Animal Care & Control (Official) at 812-435-6015.
The group has potentially made contact with the true owner of the dog, and is working to determine those details. The rescue agency will be working towards a “reunification goal” after the details are confirmed.
