A $1,000 reward has been offered by the Monmouth County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in New Jersey on Saturday for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for throwing a dog out of a moving car on the Garden State Parkway in the southbound lane near Holmdel reported the Asbury Park Press.
The brown female terrier was then hit by another car and is in serious condition. A good Samaritan witnessed the tragedy and stopped to care for the dog until authorities arrived. State Trooper Tara Karagias responded to the call and transported the dog to the Red Bank Animal Hospital.
Authorities state the incident occurred at Exit 116 near the State Trooper Police Barracks.
Chief Law Enforcement Officer Monmouth County of the SPCA Victor "Buddy" Amato credits the officer for rushing the dog to the hospital in an attempt to save its life.
In Los Lunas, New Mexico, a kitten was thrown out of a moving car into a cement wall last week. A good Samaritan had been traveling behind a red Sonoma pickup when she witnessed the passenger throw something out of the window. When the rescuer stopped, she found the defenseless, two-pound white kitten now named Sam.
Little Sam has become an Internet favorite after vets at the Bosque Animal Hospital amputated the kittens left arm because of the irreparable damage caused by the fracture when Sam hit the wall. Thought to have once been a feral kitten, the adorable little feline is already making a remarkable recovery and doesn't seem to be bothered much by her disability.
