When one can no longer care for an animal, the best thing to do is to take it to a local shelter where it can be cared for and rehomed. But some people would rather take a more barbaric way out, as did the Floridian man in this story.

Timothy Kaufmann was driving down a highway in Hillsborough county Florida, when he witnessed the saddest of scenes…

Innocent dog tossed out the window

Timothy was driving on the highway when a car ahead of him started to slow down. Observing the car, Timothy noticed the window was rolling down when all of a sudden, a dog was thrown out of the moving vehicle, and landed right in Timothy’s path! Luckily, Timothy reacted fast enough and was able to dodge the pup just in time.

There is no doubt: the dog’s owner clearly wanted his pet killed. As if abandoning him wasn’t enough already…

Fate gave her the chance she deserved

Being a huge dog lover himself, Timothy stopped his vehicle immediately and placed the dog safely inside. He called 4 Lucky Dogs Pet Rescue for help. The nearby rescue took the poor neglected pup in and renamed her Nova. The first thing they did was search for a microchip, and lo and behold – she had one.

The information the vets got from the chip revealed the owner’s terrible intentions: the night before Nova was thrown on the highway, her owner had declared her death already.

Thanks to the microchip, the owner was traced down and accused of animal cruelty. He will now have to go through trial and suffer the consequences of his actions toward this innocent animal.

As for Nova, her new life is much more cheerful. She is currently in a loving foster home and waiting to soon find her forever home – one in which she can forget the horrors of her previous life.
