The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is one of the most feverishly discussed events of the year. A who’s who of famous musicians offer showstopping performances at this location each year. While this event is typically talked about because of the music, a recent story shows that there are even bigger concerns that need to be discussed.
The titular puppies were found ten minutes away from the site. From the looks of it, someone had placed these seven puppies into a garbage bag and tossed them in a nearby dumpster. They were taken away from their mother and left to fend for themselves. This is the sort of maniacal cruelty that makes us wonder what is wrong with the world today.
There are a wide range of organizations that are willing to help those in need. Why someone would decide to simply to toss a bag of puppies into a dumpster is beyond our comprehension. How lazy can someone be? The security camera shows that a woman simply pulled up to this location in her Jeep and tossed the animals aside without so much as a second thought.
She dumped the bag in the dumpster, drove off and probably expected that nothing would come of it. The scorching heat made it difficult for the dogs to survive. If someone didn’t come along soon, the puppies would likely die. John is the Good Samaritan who located them. Once he found the dogs, he brought them into the store.
From there, animal control services were contacted.
He condemned the woman responsible for these actions. In a world where there are no shortage of options for those who are looking to avoid the responsibility of pet ownership, this sort of behavior is completely inexcusable. We are shocked and appalled by what has taken place here.
Dumping puppies is not acceptable under any circumstances. This is one of the most important lessons that local authorities are trying to impart. Hopefully, the next person who is considering such actions will stop to think about the welfare of the animals that they are cruelly tossing away. These dogs would have died of a heat stroke while stuck inside of a dumpster, all because one person did not want to take the time to hand them over to the proper authorities. Please share this story, so that shameful acts like these can become a thing of the past.
Update 4/23/2019: Since the publication of this article, officials have arrested the woman responsible for dumping the puppies. The 38 dogs found at her residence have been taken in by Riverside County Animal Services and are receiving care.
