9.12.14 - Dog Found in Tupperware1

Dogs on the Move posted the photo and the following info on their Facebook page on September 10th:


Very early this morning, Teresa Donnelly pulls into the MDAS [Miami Dade Animal Services] parking lot to go to work and this is what she encountered…

Out of the corner of her eye, she spots a Tupperware container with the lid snapped shut. Something about that container made her venture closer. When she opened it, she found this sweet little dog inside. She looks to be a Yorkshire terrier and is NOT a youngster. They are estimating she is about 10 years old.

She popped up and out all wet from head to toe.

It’s 90 degrees outside here in Miami! You put a dog in a container, dump it into the parking lot of MDAS and snap the lid shut???? Who the H@@L does this???

A rescue must come forward and help this dog get out of MDAS. She deserves to live out the rest of her life in a caring, loving home. This is not the way this girl should end up.

Thank you so much Teresa. You always do everything you can to ensure the safety and well-being of the animals of Miami. 

She has been named Gabriel and his ID number is A1642884

Now little Gabriel needs to be rescued again – this time, by a forever family.  If you would like to adopt her, please click here or call 305-884-1101.
