Pitiful jail sentence for woman who abandoned elderly, blind dog in parking lot


An Ohio woman who was convicted for abandoning her elderly, disabled dog in a Wadsworth Walmart parking lot has been given a pitiful jail sentence. As reported by Fox 8 News, Rita Swartz, who owned the 15-year-old pug named Agnes, will spend just one day in jail for abandoning the dog.

On Tuesday, Swartz was sentenced to 90 days in jail for abandoning the blind, deaf and elderly dog – 89 of those days were suspended. She is prohibited from owning a dog for the next five years and her court fees were waived.

Swartz abandoned her elderly pug in the retail store’s parking lot on November 30. The dog was taken in by the Medina County SPCA and she has since been adopted by her foster family.
