Puppy Survives Four Weeks Locked In Impounded Vehicle

main image

An employee of a Kansas City tow company was marking vehicles for auction on May 6th when he noticed a dog that jumped on the dashboard of a locked Chevy Suburban. Lot employees called the police who quickly came to free the puppy.

According to records, the vehicle was towed and impounded the night of April 8th after being abandoned on a highway ramp as it was blocking traffic. Neither police nor tow operaters had noticed a puppy.  

The owner of the vehicle, who has not been named, showed up on May 1st to inspect the car, but did not have keys to get into it. The owner never mentioned a dog, and it is not known if the owner was driving the vehicle when it was abandoned. The owner still owes $1,100 to retrieve the vehicle. City officials are investigating the circumstances surrounding the case.

When the puppy was found, she was transported to the city’s animal shelter, which is operated by Kansas City Pet Project. It was determined that she is about 12 weeks old, but she resembles an 8-week-old puppy due to near starvation and dehydration.

It is a miracle that Kia, who was named after a car brand, survived. There was some leftover McDonald's trash that it appeared Kia had picked through, but the lot employees did not see any evidence of water that she could have survived on. Fortunately, it has been a mild spring so temperatures have not been very high. The lot workers were quite upset about the situation and relieved to hear she is recovering and headed to a foster home.

As Kia has been living a good portion of her life in isolation, she will need training and socialization before she can be adopted. She will also receive vaccinations and be spayed.
