Reward! Two Dogs And A Puppy Died From Heat Stroke After Being Left In Parked Car

Two dogs and a puppy died from heat stroke after being left in a parked car.

Birmingham, AL – A reward is being offered for information leading to the identification and arrest of whoever left two dogs and a puppy inside a parked car to die. On Wednesday, the Greater Birmingham Humane Society (GBHS) said the Birmingham Police reached out for assistance after-hours to rescue several dogs locked in a hot car. The car was left at a Birmingham gas station near Bush Boulevard.

A window of the car was broken out; one dog had already died from heat stroke and the other two dogs were suffering from severe heat distress. Officers attempted to cool the surviving dogs with ice and water from the gas station.

The dogs were rushed to an emergency veterinarian but the heat had taken a deadly toll and they died.

Allison Black Cornelius, Chief Executive Officer of GBHS, commented on the horrible situation:

“GBHS is so grateful for Birmingham police officers’ quick response and life-saving measures. These two dogs were crying and whimpering in pain all the way to the hospital. Our officers see the worst of what people do to innocent animals. Leaving dogs in a car in record heat is a horrible death sentence for the animal. The suffering is unimaginable.

We are asking the public for any information they may have about this incident, and I ask the community to pray for the first responders who have to see this every day.”

The humane society is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible. Anyone with any information is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 205-254-7777.

These dogs suffered and died needlessly. There is absolutely NO reason to leave dogs inside of a parked car on even moderately warm days. Dying from heat stroke is excruciating. Please leave your pets at home, not in your car.

  1. My understanding is that ice is too cold. Yes they definately need water but ice too cold. You might find that out for sure but that is what I recently heard. I pray they find the cowardly humanoid who did this. It is unforgiveable cruelty.

    • Are you a vet or work at a vet’s office? They do whatever they thought might save the dogs. They didn’t cause the dog to die because of ice, whoever left them in the car to suffer is responsible.

    • Might have been a stolen car or the owner never got it registered in their name. Happens all the time, someone buys a cheap car off the streets from someone else and just drives it without doing any paperwork for ownership. They need to be looking at cameras in the area to determine what the driver looked it and where he or she might have gone after leaving the car. Then if they get some pics, those can be put on social media and on TV in hopes of someone Identifying them.
