What kind of person abandons their dog at the airport so they can catch a flight? This kind…
A man and his dog arrive at the Des Moines International Airport with plans to travel together but there is a problem. The man doesn’t have the right kennel so the dog isn’t allowed on the flight.
So, rather than take a later flight so he can buy a kennel, try another carrier, cancel his plans and go home, or even make arrangements to board his dog, the man simply abandons his dog, boards his plane, and flies away.
When the dog is discovered at the airport, staff call the Animal Rescue League of Iowa (ARL) for help. Tom Calvin, the CEO, told TODAY.com:
“The rescue center got a call from airport staff that the dog, who they named Allie, was left behind after her owner tried to go through the flight process without the proper kennel.”
It’s clear that sweet Stella is in better hands now and hopefully she’ll be in a new loving home soon. What do you think her owner’s punishment should be?
