The Detroit Dog Rescue team was shocked to discover a small dog, a Pomeranian Mix, who had been abandoned in front of their building at night … in freezing weather. Unfortunately, the dog did not manage to survive the harsh temperatures, however, the rescuers have camera footage that shows the animal being dumped in the street – and they are now looking for the person responsible for the dog’s death.

Anyone who has any information about the man or the vehicle seen in the pictures is encouraged to contact Detroit Dog Rescue by calling at 313-458-8014 or via email at [email protected]

The team will also be releasing the camera footage once the matter is cleared with animal control.



Although the case is clearly one of senseless abandonment, the team emphasizes in their Facebook post that they want to speak to the person who deserted the animal to determine the full story. Tipsters in the case may remain anonymous.

Does anyone else see what looks to be an apparition of a face behind the guy in the pic?
He\'ll get his it looks like already.

Really they are just going to talk to him? A small dog died from the freezing cold and all they are going to do is talk to him? Education is fine but can he be that stupid that he thought this little go would not suffer in MI temperatures? Why could he just have not brought the dog when the shelter was open?

How mean - I hope you find the person responsible

"The team" needs to do more than to "talk to him". There is NO excuse, NO extenuating circumstance which would make this less heinous. This detestable cretin needs to be prosecuted for felony animal cruelty. That is, if MI even has laws like that.
(Used to be a cool state decades ago, but the wingnuts have pretty much turned it into a regressive hell hole).

Under my Benevolent Dictatorship, humans would have to undergo two weeks of class training before being allowed to own animals -- and be evaluated to be sure they\'d be fit owners. This is one reason why.

This is such nasty Evil malicious Man. He should NEVER be allowed to let get away from this Heinous crime. What a way to start a year with such nasty, horrible crime committed. HE SHOULD BE JAILED AND FINED HEFTILY TOO.. No Punishment is sufficient enough for such brutal animal abuse.
