Dog dies in Belmont after being left in hot car
June 10, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

Joseph Regis

An 8-year-old German shepherd died Monday morning after being left in a truck parked at a Belmont motel on the 1100 block of Shoreway Road and its owner arrested, according to Belmont police.

At approximately 10:30 a.m., Belmont police responded to a call of a dog in distress at the location. Upon arrival, officers found an unresponsive the dog named “Elisha” in distress, inside the cab of a black 2011 Toyota pick-up truck. The dog had been left in the truck with the windows rolled up and without water, according to police.

San Mateo County Animal Rescue and Control, from the Peninsula Humane Society, was called immediately and responded to the scene. In spite of their efforts, Elisha died en route to an veterinary emergency clinic, according to police.

Elisha’s owner, Joseph Regis Jr., a 50-year-old transient, was contacted in a motel room by officers. Regis, who was asleep when contacted, told officers he had checked on Elisha at 3 a.m. and the dog seemed fine. Regis was arrested without incident and was booked into the San Mateo County Jail in Redwood City on a charge of felony animal cruelty, according to police.

The Belmont police and the Peninsula Humane Society would like to stress to that when it’s 80 degrees outside, a car can heat up to more than 120 degrees in just minutes.
