Justice for Kona the Dog, Stolen and Left to Die in Hot Car


Target: Jenny M. Madkour, Multnomah County Attorney

Goal: Punish the person responsible for Kona’s death and ban them from having animals under their care.

Bill Robbins had good intentions when he left his car and air conditioner running for his beloved dog, Kona. Only minutes later he was shocked to discover both his vehicle and Kona were nowhere to be found.

Surveillance video later depicted an unknown man entering Robbins’ vehicle shortly after he had stopped by his place of work. Kona could be seen happily licking the intruder while they both left the parking lot. Robbins offered an $8000 cash reward for information leading to his dog’s return and later received a tip from a concerned citizen pertaining to his car’s location.

Robbins found the vehicle sealed on a hot Portland, Oregon day and he prayed that Kona would be okay. He found him laying dead on the passenger side floor, most likely due to heat stroke. Days later one Francisco Gonzalez was arrested in relation to the crime. Gonzalez had his own dog with him upon arrest. Kona’s owner reported, “I can’t even believe he had a dog after the way he would treat mine.” Join us and urge officials to rule that the person responsible be barred from ever having another animal under their care.


Dear Ms. Madkour,

Crimes related to animals are often overlooked when other offenses which carry higher penalties are committed alongside of them. Recently, a man named Francisco Gonzalez allegedly stole and abandoned a vehicle but left the owner’s dog trapped inside. The dog later passed away most likely due to heat stroke.

Kona was a loved animal who in no way deserved the suffering caused to him by the individual responsible for this crime. Upon arrest, the individual allegedly responsible had his own dog in tow.

I urge you to make sure that the person responsible for this horrible crime is immediately prosecuted and banned from keeping animals for life life.

    Ese su asfixia o miedo o sufrimiento es menos que el del un ser humano… entonces, si no es asi, por que no se juzga de la misma manera… Ya es hora de que cambien las leyes , tantisimos anos injustos. Yo estoy cansada de las horribles torturas causadas alos animales y de las condenas minimas o ni siquiera alguna, ya es hora de que el torturador sepa el castigo que le espera. El ser humano debe medirse en algunos aspectos al ser no humano y las leyes deberian juzgar por el crimen que cometen, los animales son como ninos pequenos, por su inocencia y asi se deben juzgar los crimenes que cometen. cotra ellos

    Gonzalez the monster. Jail the monster and let him suffer the death penalty.

  4. Tina Kim says:

    I hope this monster gets locked in a hot car n then gets sent to hell to suffer for eternity! Rip kona!!!

  5. This cruel crook must be thrown behind bars for a long period of time for deliberately causing the death of an innocent beloved family pet Kona. He should get double penalty for theft as well and be banned from owning a pet permanently. Please confiscate and rehome his current dog who could be suffering in his care right now to a good responsible family. My sincere condolences to Bill Robbins for his loss…RIP Kona <3
