EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – It Takes a Village No-Kill Rescue is saying they received a call Wednesday that a dog had been spotted being thrown out of a gray mini-van. The caller said the dog was thrown from the vehicle and then ran over on Diamond Avenue near Highway 65.
Officials say the dog was rushed to St. Joe Veterinary Hospital and then transferred to the All Pet Emergency Clinic. They note that she suffered head trauma and seizures. It Takes a Village made a Facebook post saying the dog showed some improvement with recovery, and was transferred back to St. Joe Veterinary Hospital. They added that the dog was named Peach after the Good Samaritan who rushed her to the vet.
The dog escaped from her owner before she was picked up by the van. It Takes a Village officials told Eyewitness News on Tuesday that Peach was returned to her owner.
