Mississauga woman faces charges after dogs found in vehicle

A Mississauga woman is facing charges after two dogs nearly died before they were found in a parked car near Marlborough Court on Sunday, June 22.

Around 3 p.m. Halton police responded to a call about two Shih Tzu-type dogs who appeared to be in distress in a vehicle.

“The dogs were removed by police officers as they were showing severe signs of heat stress and exhaustion. They were vomiting, there was a lack of responsiveness,” said Brenda Dushko, Oakville Milton Humane Society (OMHS) spokesperson.

“They were in bad shape.”

Dushko said OMHS employees immediately took the dogs to a clinic for emergency care.

Both dogs are expected to make a full recovery.

Dushko said the dogs were in the vehicle while a woman who was caring for them attended a nearby festival.

The vehicle’s windows were found partially open, but it did not alleviate the heat inside, said Dushko.

“It is so important for people to know that when it is hot outside, when it is sunny, even if it doesn’t seem that hot, leave your dogs at home,” said Dushko.

“You can easily lose track of time and it can have devastating results. Home is the best place for them, somewhere cool where they can have access to water.”

Theresa Ritter of Mississauga faces two counts of causing distress to an animal under the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act (OSPCA).

She is to appear in Burlington Court Tuesday, July 22.
