- Florida, USA -
The Palm Bay Police Department said in a news release that on the early afternoon of Tuesday, July 13, officers were dispatched to the Bluffs Condos on Overlook Drive after receiving a report about two dogs who were left in an unattended vehicle.
Upon arrival officers located the reported vehicle and inside there were two dogs who “were in desperate need of care”, stated the release.
Police said the vehicle was not running and the windows were slightly cracked open.
Thankfully, officers were able to rescue the dogs.
Officers gave the furbabies water and then put them in their patrol car giving them direct air conditioning.
According to the news release, “Witnesses stated to the officers that the dogs had been left in the vehicle for at least two hours.”
Officers then checked the temperature of the vehicle, with it reading 96 degrees.
Meanwhile, two females arrived and told officers the dogs were theirs.
Following a brief investigation, the two females, identified as 20-year-old MAKAYLA JOE HARPER and 26-year-old HOLLY NICOLE ELLISON (both pictured below), were arrested and charged with cruelty to animals and confinement of animal without food/water.
The furbabies were turned over to the care of the Animal Services Unit with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.
The evil females, both of Palm Bay, were transported to the Brevard County Jail.
Online records do not show a court date for the heartless individuals.
