(LOS ANGELES, May 3, 2011) – has just learned of a devastating dog abandonment situation that occurred off the Imperial Highway near a Southern California dog park this past Wednesday night, April 27. Many of the dogs were immediately hit by oncoming traffic as they fled for safety.

Describing a scene of complete mayhem with several small white terrier-type dogs swerving in and out of traffic on this busy highway next to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on the corner of Main Street, witnesses at the scene heard brakes screech and watched one of the dogs get hit, dragged 20 feet, and then come out from underneath the vehicle behind. The first driver did not stop.

Playa del Rey resident Kellie Peters, who runs a local marketing and public relations business and is a cat owner, stopped her car mid-traffic to grab the loose dog from the treacherous highway and bring him to safety. The dog bit her as she tried to help, clearly terrified, she said, and as she held him in a blanket to prevent further biting and curb bleeding. She along with Charlotte Hefti, a music teacher in El Segundo who also pulled over to help, immediately took him to an emergency veterinary hospital.
