Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the 8300 block of Doniphan Dr. in reference to an animal cruelty call. Upon arrival, deputies observed a small black dog inside a vehicle. Deputies requested the assistance of the West Valley Fire Department to retrieve the dog from the vehicle.

Sheriff’s Office deputies located and arrested the occupants of the vehicle; Romelia Lozoya age 44, and Guadalupe Lozoya age 52 for Animal Cruelty.

The dog had been left inside the vehicle in a cruel manner without food, water, or proper shelter.

On an 85-degree day, for example, the temperature inside a car with the windows opened slightly can reach 102 degrees within 10 minutes. After 30 minutes, the temperature will reach 120 degrees. Your pet may suffer irreversible organ damage or die.”

                Sheriffs’ Office Animal Control Officers turned the dog over to the El Paso Animal Service Shelter.

It is the Sheriff’s Office policy when responding to these type of calls is to protect the animal and take immediate measures to retrieve the animal from the vehicle. Offenders who commit these type of offenses will be held accountable.
