A Texas animal shelter has launched an investigation after a man abandoned a dog, with a shattered pelvis and broken legs, outside of its facility. The Beaumont Animal Care Center posted two surveillance image photos on its Facebook page on Thursday, explaining what happened:

Sweet Angel is pictured below being dumped in our parking lot this morning with life threatening injuries. She was left in the grass by this man who did not have the decency or patience to wait on our staff to get more information. Not only did he dump her, fully aware of our cameras, but he made suggestive hand gestures as he left Angel lying pain.

According to staff, Angel’s cries of pain could be heard from inside of the building. Though the dog was rushed to a veterinarian, her injuries proved to be too severe. The shelter explains:

Her pelvis was completely shattered, both back legs were broken beyond repair, and she had permanent nerve damage on the entire front left side of her body. Angel is now on the other side of the rainbow bridge.

Information needed

Shelter staff hopes to learn more about the situation leading up to Angel’s abandonment – the posted a request for information:

Please help us give Angel the respect that she deserved. If you recognize this man or vehicle, call us at (409)838-3304 or email us at If you would like to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers at 832-TIPS.

Reminding everyone that it is illegal to abandon a pet:

We would like to remind everyone that it is against the law to abandon an animal, even on the property of an animal shelter. We can find peace in the fact that Angel did not die alone and had someone by her side.

    The whole situation for this dog is very sad. Poor precious treasure was probably someone’s pet & not too “street smart”. She was hit by a vehicle & this man picked her up to get her help…… for whatever reason he couldn’t stay with her and left ASAP.
    Her injuries were so severe that she wouldn’t have been able to live with any life quality….. Her family must be wondering where she is…….
