Cat and dog overpopulation is at a crisis level in New Mexico, but authorities are turning to the public in hopes that they can solve one recent case of abandonment. Video surveillance shows the heartbreaking moment a man left a pregnant dog outside of a Dunkin’ Donuts, which has prompted police to seek help in identifying the person responsible.
Santa Fe animal services were alerted early on December 26th, 2017 after multiple witnesses spotted a man abandon his dog in the parking lot of a local Dunkin’ Donuts. While the security cameras failed to capture the man’s license plate number, they did manage to get a clear image of his face and the act of desertion.
“The male opened his door and let the dog out of the vehicle with the note attached to its neck,” Santa Fe police stated on Facebook. “The man then proceeded to go into Dunkin’ Donuts and order a cup of coffee. The dog followed the man from the vehicle to the front door of the business but was ignored by the man … Animal services would like any help identifying the man seen in the video.”
The man drove away after leaving the coffee and baked goods chain. The dog, which is currently under the care of licensed veterinarians at the Santa Fe Animal Shelter, was found with a note attached to her collar, which read: “I’m free. I’m having babies.”
