Justice for Dog Found in Trash Bag in Sweltering Heat


Target: Vincent Price, Woodhaven Police Chief

Goal: Identify and charge person who abandoned dog in a trash bag in high temperatures and ensure they are punished to the full extent of the law.

Footage from outside an animal shelter shows a woman abandoning a dog in a crate inside a plastic trash bag outside of the closed facility. The two-year-old Yorkshire terrier was thankfully found by an employee of the Woodhaven and Trenton Animal Shelter, or else he would have likely died a horrific death, suffocating from the heat trapped inside the crate and trash bag.

On top of being abandoned in such a life-threatening and heartless manner, the dog was suffering from an injury to its back leg, matted fur and fleas. The individual responsible for this abuse must not only be immediately found and charged, she must also receive the highest punishment possible for this act of extreme cruelty, including a hefty fine and considerable jail time. It is also vital that this person be banned from keeping pets for life to ensure no other animal suffers this callous cruelty.

Sign this petition urging authorities to quickly find and charge this woman with animal abuse, as well as do everything in their power to ensure she is severely punished by law.


Dear Chief Price,

Please do everything in your power to urgently identify and charge the person responsible for inflicting horrible suffering to a young Yorkshire terrier. The animal was abandoned outside an animal shelter, confined to a crate inside a plastic trash bag. Because of extremely high temperatures, the dog would have suffocated to death had a shelter employee not found him in time.

I urge you to find the person responsible and ensure he or she receives a hefty fine and jail sentence, as well as a lifetime ban on keeping pets, to protect other animals from having to endure this kind of callous cruelty.

  2. I hope she was killed on the way home. Maybe she hit a tree, hopefully.

  3. Kimberly Carignan says:

    How can some people be this ignorant and still be alive?! Heartless and sickening… karma, baby, karma!!

  4. Stephanie Geyser says:

    I wonder how she treats her children when they irritate her?

  5. Joan Faszczewski says:

    Maybe when they get this evil person do the same thing to her like she did to this dog. Animals have feelings like humans they feel pain also.

  6. Errol Gunn says:

    Find this dumb bitch and tie her to a pole out in the desert and leave her there to die! This planet doesn’t need shit like her and her sadistic action towards this poor dog doesn’t allow her to live on it!

  7. val gaffney says:

    I fully concur with Errol above and in fact I’ll offer to tie her on the pole! How can someone do such a thing – could she not have waited for the shelter to open! She needs finding and punishing to the full extent of the law

  8. John Riggins says:

    I have plastic bag right here to tie round her worthless neck! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  9. Justice for this poor dog, please.

    Harsh punishment for ALL ANIMAL abuse.

  10. please do NOT breed any more no cent animals to be abused and abandoned. Thousands of animals dumped like trash at shelters and killed. Please SToP! 4 million killed in U.S. Shelters each year! Thousands more a used and abandoned on the streets or tethered in backyards. Disgusting!
