The Washington State Police are hoping for help from the public in identifying the culprits who threw two small dogs out of an older white passenger car on Wednesday night near Padden Parkway and Interstate 205 in Vancouver reports

A Good Samaritan witnessed the older model Ford Taurus slow down, open up the rear door, and toss a chihuahua and a cocker spaniel out of the car onto the shoulder of the road.

The dogs were not injured, and when the witness stopped, both dogs jumped into his car.

Authorities report the white car's license plate was from Washington and had three letters, followed by four numbers.

The male chihuahua named Poncho and the female cocker spaniel named Seeley were taken to the Humane Society of Southwest Washington.

According to, the owner of the dogs said they had escaped from their home after having been scared by the New Year's Eve fireworks. Whoever picked up the dogs were likely the same people who dropped the dogs off on the side of the road, where the pets could have been hit by a car or could have caused an accident as motorists tried to evade a collision.

If you have any information about the responsible party, please call Trooper Justin Maier at (360)-449-7999.
