SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A Springfield animal shelter cares for a neglected dog that was reportedly tossed out of a car window last weekend. This dog is fine and is cared for by the Thomas J O’Connor Animal Control & Adoption Center.
Today I met Bri, a name given to her by the people at TJO in Springfield. Their director Pam Peebles told 22News last Sunday they got a call from a Good Samaritan who saw this dog get thrown out of a car before the driver sped down Plumtree Road. A TJO animal control officer took them back to the shelter and they are now waiting for the owner to call. 22News asked Pam about Bri’s condition
â€œShe is in very good shape, she has an optimal weight, a shiny, good coat, is perfectly healthy. She was dropped off with a cute sweater. At some point someone took care of them, but something went terribly wrong, “said Pam Peebles, director of the Thomas J. O’Connor Animal Control & Adoption Center. According to the law, Peebles said they would have to detain Bri as a stray for a week. They can then put her up for adoption on the 8th day.
They ask people to come back with any video that might help with the investigation. And they have many in the community interested in adopting Bri, but whether it’s your dog or another, they encourage you to get in touch with them if you want to adopt her.
