Surveillance Camera Catches A Man Dumping His Dog On The Roadside!

A camera caught a man leaving a pup behind after pushing it out of his car. The poor helpless pup could do nothing but to stare at his dad’s car speeding away, after running after it for a while!

Fortunately, an officer of Kansas City Codes Enforcement discovered this incident when he was monitoring the camera on this illegal dumping site. He was shocked when he saw this pup’s owner tossing him out allegedly.

Although the footage had been seen eight days later to this tragic abandonment, Animal Control sent officers to search for the abandoned pup that appeared in the video. Thankfully, the officers found the pup in the area. Although he was starving and cold, he seemed to be still waiting for his human to show up.

The officers took Mojave, as later named, to the KC Pet Project shelter. In a hit of luck, Mojave had a miraculous chance in less than 30 minutes after arriving at the shelter. A couple who wanted to adopt a pup came in, met Mojave, and fell in love with him instantly. Fortunately, Mojave found the family who would love to give him the forever home he deserves, just like that!

The KC Pet Project shelter posted on their Facebook, “Wow, that was quick! Mojave was not at our Zona Rosa location 30 minutes before this fun couple came in, met him, and fell in love with him. They were not aware of his story, but we were able to share that with them. He will have a new doggie best friend at home to play with a family to love and spoil him. Congrats Mojave!”


Any dog lover cannot be happier for Mojave. Every animal lover and I hope that this adorable pup will forget about the cruel human who abandoned him, and enjoy the happiness and love that the couple will unconditionally give to him.

Regarding the people who left Mojave on the roadside, according to a KC Pet Project post, they had been traced through the license plate by investigators, and citations had been issued to them. Besides animal abandonment, they also had been charged with not having a proper pet license, and not neutering a Pit Bull.
