Dog Abuse

Royals Fans Rescue Puppy Left in Parked Car at Kauffman Stadium

A group of Kansas City Royals fans decided to leave Sunday’s game at Kauffman Stadium a little early. That decision, as it turns out, would be lifesaving.

When Royals fans Josh Lee, his wife Erin, son Hudson, and brother Michael Warner left in the eighth inning of the 13 inning game, headed to their car, parked in an un-shaded parking lot while outside temperatures reached into the 90’s on that cloudless day, they heard what sounded like a dog whimpering nearby.

The group discovered a young puppy, around 16 weeks old, locked in a car. The puppy had no food, no water, and the windows were only slightly cracked. They contacted Kansas City Police who alerted Royals guest services.

Guest services assisted the group in rescuing the young puppy from the hot car, providing him with water and giving him a safe, cool place to hang out while his owners, ignorant to the scene unfolding at their vehicle, enjoyed the game inside the stadium.

“Considering that the game ended in the 13th and we found the pup in the eight,” Lee wrote, “…we very well may have saved his young life.”

The puppy was handed over to Royals staff who cared for him while waiting for the owner to step forward. An hour after the game ended with a Royals win, the puppy had still not been claimed.

If an owner does not step forward, one of the rescuers has offered to give him a loving home where he’ll never be left alone in a hot car again.

      So thankful to the family that rescued this baby
      I do not understand people who leave these precious, dependable dog friends in a car @ 90 degrees…
      No water….the dog shouldn’t have been in the car at all!
      The owners should never have the privilege of having another pet!!!! That is all!
