BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey personally walked Sara Ann Perry into the Brevard County Jail after being arrested for forcing her dog into the hot trunk of a white BMW on Thursday.

“I want to thank all the citizens who assisted us in saving this dog’s life,” said Sheriff Ivey.

“Let me be clear if you harm an animal in Brevard County, we’re going to put your butt straight in jail,” said Sheriff Ivey.

Perry, 27, was caught on smartphone video stuffing the dog into the trunk in a parking lot after she tried to give the dog to the animal shelter because she couldn’t care for it anymore.

“Let me be clear if you harm an animal in Brevard County, we’re going to put your butt straight in jail,” said Sheriff Wayne Ivey.

The shelter said it was full and had no room for the dog and told Perry they would not euthanize the dog. Perry then shoved the dog in the trunk of the hot car.

Members of the animal shelter staff took images of Perry’s license plate and BCSO Animal Enforcement was then contacted immediately.

“As a result of the investigation our team was able to identify the suspect, locate the dog, and take the dog into custody as the dog was visibly emaciated and appeared to be uncared for,” said Sheriff Ivey.
