MANHATTAN’S UPPER EAST SIDE — A New York police adopted a puppy she rescued from a hot automobile on Manhattan’s Upper East Side a month ago.
On June 18, a dog was rescued from a parked car, according to WPIX. According to reports, the dog was locked in the car for almost two hours.
Concerned residents who observed the dog in the car called 911, according to a tweet from the New York Police Department’s 19th Precinct in June. When officers arrived, they discovered the automobile was turned off, the windows were hot, and the dog was in distress. The officers then shattered the window to free the dog and transport him to the veterinarian.
On Wednesday, the NYPD 19th Precinct tweeted that the dog would no longer be neglected because one of its officers, Officer Maharaj, had adopted him. She was one of the officers who participated in the dog’s rescue.
“This adorable doggo was rescued a month ago after his owner left him in his hot locked car for hours; yesterday, one of its rescuers, Officer Maharaj, adopted him,” said the NYPD 19th Precinct.
The ASPCA has assisted in the treatment of the dog since his rescue, according to the NYPD 19th Precinct.
However, the probe is still ongoing.
