Saying good bye to your dog is one of the hardest things you will ever have to do, so I can’t even begin to imagine what goes through the minds of those who willfully give up their dogs.
Unfortunately, there are some people out there who don’t share the same values and would even abandon their dogs in the most horrible ways.
A camera caught a woman abandoning her dog in one of the most terrible ways ever.
The clip starts by her parking up, walking out, and then grabbing the dog from the backseat.
She then starts walking him into the woods like they’re going for a normal walk.
Before she suddenly emerges from the woods running to her car, leaving the dog behind.
Luckily for the dog, he was rescued by I Paw’d It Forward in Portland.
Their Facebook page shared the sad clip of the dog’s abandonment and stated that they hope this awful clip serves as a reminder to others not to abandon their pets.
As the shelter wrote in their post,
“THIS. This is what a dog that has just been abandoned looks like. They are still here. They are still waiting. They are still searching for you to return. They are confused. They do not understand why the humans they devoted their lives to, have disappeared.”
The post continued to discuss how many times these dogs that are abandoned are never found.
While the rescue does it’s best to get every abandoned dog off the street, it’s a difficult task. It further added that there is never a good excuse to abandon a pet – especially since there are plenty of resources out there where you can get the help you need if you find yourself in a situation where you have to give up your pet.
Since their initial post, they have been able to update that they’ve found the abuser, and after many crocodile tears, she did admit she abandoned her dog named Henry (despite telling neighbors her dog had died).
She will be persecuted under Clark County animal cruelty laws.
While the investigation was going on, Brandon Price, one of the ones responsible for recording the incident, has been running a fundraiser for I Paw’d It Forward through Facebook.
