On Tuesday morning, Santa Fe animal services were alerted to a Dunkin' Donuts where, according to witnesses, a man had stopped in after dumping his dog in the parking lot out front. Surveillance footage failed to capture the man's license plate number, but his face was clearly caught on camera — as was the heartbreak of what he was doing.
"The male opened his door and let the dog out of the vehicle with the note attached to its neck," Santa Fe police said in a release. "The man then proceeded to go into Dunkin' Donuts and order a cup of coffee. The dog followed the man from the vehicle to the front door of the business but was ignored by the man."
Then the man drove away, leaving the dog behind.
