Dog Left In Hot Car Parked At Disney World While Owner Visited Theme Park

A small dog in Florida was saved from a miserable death from heat stroke thanks to an alert passerby, and the police. The dog, a Maltese, was left inside of a locked vehicle in a parking lot at Disney World. ABC Journalist Parker Branton Tweeted about the rescue effort on August 10:

“A Hollywood Studios park guest says she heard a bark coming from a car just before 5 Monday afternoon. ‘She looked right up into my eyes and said help.’ Looking around I saw an empty bowl and a parking receipt for 11:48 am!”

The good Samaritan, Jerry Dana French, was able to get the police to the vehicle, and the officer who removed the dog estimated that it had an hour or less to live.

The owner was eventually located inside of the theme park – as reported by People, police returned the dog to the owner, whose name was not released. Surprisingly, the person who left the dog inside of the vehicle did not get charged.

  1. Why was the dog allowed to go with them they should have been charged if it was a human baby they would have been charged with neglect.

  2. So wrong…it is like this irresponsible and STUPID owner had a death wish for this poor pup! Nobody can claim ignorance about this issue of leaving a dog in a hot care to bake, if they have any common sense @ all….plus there are so many PSAs and news coverage every year warning people of the consequences! I can not believe the dog was returned to the careless owner, and the owner not charged with animal cruelty and abuse, which should have been what happened. It is only because of a good Samaritan’s actions that this dog did not suffer a slow, painful death of being cooked alive!

  3. I have personally filed complaints on the sheriff’s website, and another review site. How, in God’s name, could they have possibly returned this poor baby to the POS owner and not filed charges??? It completely astounds me!!!

    • What website is it you used? I would like to file a complaint as well. This is beyond reckless to give back that poor animal to such a gargantuan idiot! This will happen again because the owner is a gargantuan idiot!

  4. Why in the world did these horrible owners get their dog back? What’s wrong with our country that so many people think it’s ok to abuse, neglect, animals!

  5. This is exactly why animal cruelty is rampant in Florida. Authorities do not take it seriously. It’s time for law enforcement, judges, DAs and prosecutors to DO THEIR JOBS–arrest, charge, maximum jail time and fines, and no plea bargains.
    This woman should have been charged with animal cruelty and the taken away from her. The police failed this dog and basically said it’s OK to practically kill an animal.

  8. There are no appropriate consequences, and often no punishment whatsoever, for animal abuse and death. As long as the perpetrators receive nothing more than a tiny slap on the wrist for these crimes, abuse will continue indefinitely. Let us all take the time to write and demand our legislators to wake up an evolve. That little dog, having been locked in the car for over five hours, should have righteously been confiscated and the horrid people should have been prohibited from ever having another animal. Case closed!

  10. How could they not charge the owner of this dog with a crime. They are just going to to do again. That poor dog was suffering and would have died. How disgusting of the police.

  11. Unbelievable that this innocent Maltese pup was returned to its owner who wasn’t charged for negligence, cruelty or abuse! “Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness of character; and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.” -Schopenhauer

    • This is totally unbelievable!!This poor baby deserves better.The owner has no right to have this precious baby back.The only reason he didn’t die was because of the person who contacted the police.

  12. This is why Its so important to have a worldwide animal rights and protection law. As long as there is no animal rights and protecting law worldwide humans should be deeply ashamed of themselfs for not helping the animals. Humans who treat animals like garbage and treat them like crap don”t deserve the light of day themselfs even don”t deserve to be called human. Humanity starts with caring for ,saving and protecting the most innocent creatures on the planet.

  13. These worthless cops didn’t charge this pos what a shocker, the fact they’d have paperwork outweighed doing their jobs. Without punishments this kind of abuse and neglect will continue. The cops in this case are as despicable as the monster who did this to this precious pup.

  14. I would not have return the dog to it’s owner but I would have put the owner in the car and let him feel the heat. This person should not be able to own a dog again !! The officer should be fired.

How can anyone do this and feel its ok….Everyday you see where animals are left to die or abused and law enforcement are trying to find the people who did these unthinkable acts and here you have the “MONSTER” in plain site and they give back the dog to them. What the heck….do you think they are just going to leave there take the little thing home and love it and take care of it???!!!!!

  20. PLEASE post on Orange County Sheriff’s Social Media to express your dismay with this outcome. @OrangeCoSheriff They need to set an example, these people will inevitably do it again, to leave a dog almost dead, so they can go to an amusement park, unreal! THEY do not care about animals, not do they deserve to have them!

  24. Great rescue but horrible followup. The owner should NEVER have been allowed to leave with the dog, without at the very least being cited for animal cruelty. Now they’ll probably just do it again since they weren’t punished.

  27. Why would they release that poor animal to its owner?! That’s absurd! The owner should have been charged and the animal brought it a rescue to be rehomed. Shame on the police!

  30. No charges!? If it were a child would there be charges?! If the ‘owners’ are that stupid then they should be prohibited from owning a dog. Most likely brainless immigrants.

  35. If a person is going out all day,leave the pets home. Sitting in the car for 30 minutes or more the temp is much hotter. If u all want ur fur babies,leave them at home.
