Phoenix police officers brought a puppy to the Arizona Animal Welfare League & Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (AAWL & SPCA) over the weekend that had been left in a car with the windows rolled up in a parking lot in central Phoenix.

When officers found him, the dog appeared to be in distress due to the heat, and police unlocked the vehicle to rescue it.

Two people later got in the car and drove off, abandoning the dog.

The dog went up for adoption Thursday, July 14 at the shelter at 30 N. 40th Place in Phoenix.

For more information about adopting a dog from AAWL & SPCA, go to or call (602) 273-6852, ext. 134.
