Puppy Left Alone in Car for a Month by Heartless Owners Survives by Eating Trash (VIDEO)

OMG 25


If you're unfortunate enough to have your car towed, it's a total pain to go down to the impound lot and pick it up. But if you want your vehicle back, or whatever was left inside your car at the time of towing, it's definitely worth the hassle.

And that's why whoever left a puppy alone in an impounded car for an entire MONTH is nothing short of a heartless, cruel, miserable excuse for a human being.

A worker at an impound lot in Kansas City noticed a little terrier puppy on the dashboard inside of one of the cars and alerted police that she was trapped inside. Animal control was called, and finally she was rescued.

The poor little thing, now named "Kia," had been in there since April 8, and it's an absolute miracle that she survived.

Take a look at this video clip to hear how she lived on trash -- possibly fast food leftovers and cigars (OMG!) -- during her ordeal and how she's getting a second chance thanks to the staff at KC Pet Project, who are caring for her.


I know, you want to adopt her, right? Yeah, me too. And it sounds like a whole host of other people want to take her home and give her the love and attention she deserves as well, so I'm guessing it won't be long until she has owners who will adore her.

And as for whoever abandoned her? I hope they're easily caught, based on who the car is registered to. They absolutely need to be held accountable for their actions -- because leaving an innocent puppy alone to die simply because you don't want (or can't afford) to get your car out of the impound lot is inexcusable. If nothing else, I'm sure they would've at least returned the poor pup.

But in Kia's case, maybe being left in that car was a blessing in disguise. If her first owners were horrible enough to forget about her the way they did, she's much better off going to a home with people who will truly care for her and make her part of their family.

Are you amazed that Kia survived her ordeal?

cute animals, pets

I'm sad for the puppy and glad she's OK but you're jumping to conclusions here - how do you know the person who left the car also knew the dog was in there?

Who WOULDN'T know there was a puppy? They are very vocal, especially when they're not getting attention. It's despicable when animals are neglected, much less forgotten about. Its bad enough to hear about animals being left in burning houses & perishing but forgetting a dog INSIDE an impounded car is a whole new level of low.

How could you not know there's a puppy in your far?! Deaf dumb and blind?

My ideal punishment for these twatwaffles is to hang them upside down like a piñata and hit them with a mace.

Owner died, car is parked on the street and finally towed after a requisite number of tickets? Etc? I can think of a few ways this happens without it being just a horrible person; you'll enjoy life more if you stop assuming everyone is a heartless moron from the get-go.

It was impounded. How do you even know if the car was in working order? Maybe the dog some how got in there before it was towed. People jump to the worse scenarios.

Let's hope and pray that they don't have any children.

We're all missing the point here. The person who owns the car is not to blame. The people who work at the impound are. Believe me, I've dealt with the city workers at the impound here in Buffalo for many years, and they would slit your throat as soon as look at you. We speak of the heartlessness of humanity, trust me, look no further than anyone involved with parking enforcement in any city and you will find the worst of the worst.

These people are so horrible and sick who does that to a poor little animal. I would like to see the owners locked up for a month.

Long ago, during my policeman days, when we impounded a car everything in it was immediately inventoried. Why? So that owner couldn't later claim that there was something of value (cahs, a diamond ring, whatever) inside and now it is gone and I'm going to sue. The question becomes: Why weren't the contents of this car inventoried immediately? I'm happy for the puppy but it should have been found on day one.
