C0-022442 Occurred: 3/9/20
Lincoln Animal Control received a call around 8:45am on the morning of Monday, March 9th about a stray puppy near the car wash on 26th and Randolph. When they arrived, a man flagged them down and said there was a puppy inside the car wash bay. It was a chilly, rainy day and the puppy was shaking and cold when taken into safety. A review of the video surveillance from the car wash shows a woman left the puppy in the bay earlier that morning with his blanket. She is described as a black or Hispanic female, and she was driving a gold Chevy Traverse with expired paper in-transits from 10/25/19. We are looking to identify her and need your help. If you know where this vehicle is located, we will take that information as well. Thankfully this story has a happy ending. The puppy was checked out by the Capital Humane Society and was in good health. He was put up for adoption and found a new home within just a couple days.
