NEWS RELEASE regarding this video: Caught on Tape: Woman Dumps Puppies Animal Services Places Pups With Rescue Group Partner FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 2019 â€“ A woman dumped a bag of puppies behind an auto parts store in Coachella on Thursday afternoon and now sheâ€™s being investigated for animal cruelty. An employee with a Napa Auto Parts store contacted Riverside County Animal Services after a passerby discovered the bag next to a Dumpster. The store is located at 49251 Grapefruit Blvd. Officer Jose Cisneros responded shortly before 2 p.m. and collected a trash bag, which contained seven puppies. All of the pups were approximately 3 days old and were believed to be terrier mixes. Animal Servicesâ€™ veterinary team members cared for the puppies and lined up a rescue group partner organization to take over bottle feeding duties. MeoowzResQ, a Southern California-based organization specializing in kitten and cat rescue and fostering, agreed to accept the pups. Officer Cisneros asked an employee at the Napa store if he could review any surveillance footage from the store securityâ€™s cameras. The employee allowed the officer to review the footage and he watched one segment that showed a vehicle driving near the rear area of the business. Just after 1 p.m. on Thursday, a woman in a Jeep pulled up, exited the Jeep carrying a plastic bag in one of her hands and walked toward a Dumpster used for recycling materials. She shut the recycling Dumpster and dropped the clear, plastic bag next in a trash Dumpster and drove away. Shortly afterward, a passerby, named John, rummaged through the trash and noticed the bag and brought it into the Napa store. If not for the Good Samaritanâ€™s actions, the puppies may not have survived much longer. The mid-day temperatures in Coachella on Thursday were in the mid-90s range. â€œThe Good Samaritan played a major role in saving theses puppiesâ€™ lives,â€ Commander Chris Mayer said. â€œHis actions were humane and heroic.â€ He said the womanâ€™s actions are despicable and he and his colleagues are already communicating with Riverside County Sheriffâ€™s investigators and the District Attorneyâ€™s office in building a strong cruelty case. â€œThere is no excuse for dumping puppies,â€ Mayer said. â€œEspecially in todayâ€™s age when we or other shelters would be willing to get these animals to foster parents or rescue partners. This was a shameful act.â€ #RivCOnow #CrueltyINVESTIGATION #animalCRUELTY #puppies #puppyDUMP #pupsDUMPED #puppyCRUELTY #RiversideCountyCALIFORNIA #Coachella #CoachellaValleyAnimalCampus #animalCONTROLofficer #AnimalCrueltyInvestigation
