So has anybody called the number on the car?

I would have never thought of taking a picture and posting it, but Kudos for doing that!

City-Data has a lot of posters and lurkers... I still would like to see this one on the news.

Again Kudos for the smart thinking, and the courage to get involved.
I called the number while I was there, and my wife went back in the store and asked the people up front if they knew who's car it was. No answer and no one knew.Moderator cut: see comment

Apparently it's a cell phone registered in Kerrville. You can do a reverse lookup for a cell phone, but the websites that do such searches cost money.

I found a pet taxi company in New Braunfels (still the 830 area code) that uses the same "Pet Sitting, Dog Walking, Pet Taxi" phrase, but they have a different phone number in the contact info of their website (still an 830 area code number), so I won't give the name now. Still searching though.

I just called and a woman answered on vm and said "hello, leave a message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can..." No business name.

I understand y'all being upset. I just don't know how anyone knows if this is HER pet or someone else's. Yeah, I know it really doesn't matter, but you can't just assume it's not hers. Also, silvercreek78250 blogged about seeing this once on one of his vacations......his wife was upset at seeing dogs locked up in a van, but when they got closer they saw a sign on the vehicle stating that no one should worry about the pets inside the van...the vehicle's a/c was running and the dogs were fine. I am not sure if there was a way to tell if the a/c was running, but they were satisfied and put away their baseball bats (the ones they were going to club the dog owners with) (j/k I am sure they weren't going to use violence to confront these people). I'm just saying, you can't tell from this picture what exactly the dog's situation was. And how do we know it's not merc11ty's neighbor or ex-wife he's pissed off at? Just sayin'.

You're right, it doesn't matter whether it was their pet or someone else's. If it was their pet, how do you think they would treat yours? I posted numerous times that the A/C was NOT running. How would I know? Because the freaking car was not running! I guess next time I'll be sure to record a video too so there isn't a doubt as to what the situation is

I call the Police when I see Pets are left in hot cars, the local Police are pretty quick about it.
This NOT a good way for her to advertise her business.
I would do the same for Children.
Glad you took the pics.
