A woman was caught on camera by Jackson animal shelter, CARA, dumping a dog outside of the building.
It appears that she tried to tie the dog up, and when he got loose from her tie, she ignored him, got back into her vehicle, and sped away.
The poor dog chased her for a while then gave up and ran circles before disappearing into the woods.
Shelter workers watched the disturbing surveillance video and immediately went out looking for the terrified pup. What this woman did was illegal.
They set a trap out in the woods with food to lure the dog in.
After a few days, they saw their trap worked!
The dog, who the shelter decided to name “Manny” was safely inside.
“Welcome to CARA, Manny. You are beautiful, you are worthy of love and loyalty, and your life matters.

She didn’t deserve you, and you certainly deserve so much more. Our promise to you is that you will get the life and love that you deserve. Bank on that. “
