An Ilinois dog owner says an animal shelter mistakenly euthanized her missing pooch after she tracked him down and arranged to pick him up.
Monica Lopez said she tracked down her pit bull, Dada, at Champaign County Animal Control after he got loose Dec. 18, news station WAND reported.
She was assured her dog was “safe” and made arrangements to pick him up last Monday, since she couldn’t get there immediately due to the holidays.
But before she arrived to bring Dada back home, she got the horrific news that he had been mistakenly euthanized.
“They [turned] around and gave me heartbreaking news that he was put down on Christmas day even tho [sic] they told me he was safe and warm,” she wrote on Facebook.
Champaign County Executive Darlene Kloeppel confirmed that a worker euthanized the pooch because they weren’t made aware of Lopez’s plans to come get him.
“Fortunately, errors of this type are rare,” Kloeppel told WAND in a statement.
