Dog Saved From A Hot Car Gets Adopted By Officer Who Saved Him [Video]

  • NYPD’s 19th precinct responded to a call about a trapped dog inside a hot car.
  • Fortunately, the dog was found healthy upon a veterinary check-up and his owner was charged with animal cruelty.
  • The dog was turned over to the RSPCA and one of the officers who saved him decided to adopt the dog, a month after the incident.

With temperatures at 85 degrees on a hot day in New York City, temperatures inside parked cars could reach 120 degrees after an hour.  Dogs locked inside cars would be distressed and even die from the heat.

On June 18, a dog was reported to be locked in a parked car.  Officers from the NYPD’s 19th Precinct responded to the call. They wasted no time to rescue the distressed dog.

According to the 19th Precinct’s tweet, “Thanks to caring NYers who saw this pup locked in a car for over 2 hours & called 911. Our cops responded discovering the car off, windows shut & distressed dog. They broke the window, got pup out & off to a vet for care. Criminal investigation continues.”

The vet gave the dog a clean bill of health while his owner was charged with one count of animal cruelty.  He is not getting back his dog.  Instead, the fluffy white dog was handed over to the RSPCA and put up for adoption.

Who ever knew that after a month, one of the officers who saved him, would bring him home?

The officers at the 19th Precinct tweeted about the happy development with, “This pup will never be neglected again. “Thank you @ASPCA for taking such good care of this lucky pup!”

Here’s a reminder though. For dog owners, if you cannot bring your dog inside with you on a warm day, find a way to leave them home.  And for those who see a trapped animal inside a car, do not take matters into your hands.  Call the authorities for assistance to avoid potential injury or liability.

As for the doggo, welcome to your new home!
