Dog Rescued from Guest Vehicle at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, No Charges Filed Against Owner

    Yesterday evening, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and Reedy Creek Fire Department responded to the Disney’s Hollywood Studios parking lot after a guest noticed a dog had been left in a vehicle.

    A post on Facebook detailed the incident, which ultimately led to the Reedy Creek Fire Department gaining entry into the black Mercedes SUV with a Washington state license plate. After more than 1,000 comments and thousands of interactions on the post, the guest who alerted Disney security to the situation provided an update that the dog had been rescued. The small dog took some time to recover, but according to a statement provided to from the Orange County Sherriff’s Office, the owner was located in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the dog was returned. The owner left the park and no charges were filed.

    Orange County Sherriff’s Office has previously filed animal cruelty charges against individuals who have left pets in their vehicles where those pets were either harmed or died. Thankfully, a good samaritan noticed the dog in time for it to be rescued.
