I couldn't watch the video - I wish we had tougher crimes for those who do such hateful things to animals. These days I prefer animals to people.

Why exactly was the car owner not charged? She was as guilty as the POS we see in the clip.

That's the problem. We don't have anything near the harsh penalties we should have for animal abuse, and people still don't take it seriously. Many jurisdictions barely have a slap on the wrist. There should be jail time.... lengthy jail time.

good question. I do remember reading the comments on the local news and they said that they traced down the person that registered the plates, but it wasn't them. Who knows how they got their hands on that car - a car lot sale? Hope to hear more

That's how I got mine years ago. I read an ad of "Abandoned dogs" elderly couple had been feeding them (Two pups) and I went and got them.

I won't deal with any animal rescue as they have "Requirements" (Read Demands) that would have stopped me from adopting due to how I lived then (Rental) and now (In RV) and that somehow this makes me unfit.

My dogs always got the best and got it first. I went without so they never had to.

But I do agree that what she did was disgusting. Better she put an ad in the paper and gave them away....They'd have landed at good homes still...

People do this with newborn babies as well.

Neither of those would exclude you from adopting from any shelter that I'm familiar with. A lot of people who adopt dogs rent. As long as you have permission from your landlord, and you're not trying to sneak a dog.

I've heard some of the adoption places are really strict. I found my dog on the side of the road. He was dumped because he was injured and I guess they didn't want to pay the vet bills for the surgery. I did and got a great dog out of it.

Our cat came from a rescue. The lady running the rescue had over a hundred cats she was trying to find homes for. I had met her at PetSmart when I brought the dog in the first time to get the supplies he needed to live in our home. I guess she thought we were trustworthy. We only had to fill out paperwork and pay the fee.

I can't watch videos like that. I get too upset.

That 'woman' is a monster. An unfeeling monster.

This is inexcusable and hopefully everyone in that car will get more than just a slap on the wrist. In addition to fines, they should e required to do 40 hours or so of community service at the local pound, feeding dogs, cleaning up poop, scrubbing kennels, and bagging euthanized dogs. With the shortage of healthy, desirable breed dogs, these dogs will find homes quickly (they didn’t appear to be Pit mixes).
