Fostoria, Ohio — An Indiana woman has been charged with animal cruelty after she allegedly left a dog inside a vehicle for approximately six hours in Fostoria.

On Thursday at approximately 4:27 p.m., officers with the Fostoria Police Division were called to the rear parking lot of 119 W. Center St. for a dog that had been left inside a vehicle since approximately 10 a.m.

Upon arrival, officers located a dog inside of a vehicle with the windows partially down, but no one around.

The registration was searched, and the owner of the dog was located.

Upon removing the dog from the vehicle, it was provided fresh water by the staff of Pizza Palace and Fostoria PD officers.

According to a news release from the Fostoria Police Division, 33-year-old April J. Craig, of Eaton, Indiana, has been charged with cruelty to companion animals, a second-degree misdemeanor.

A copy of the complaint will also be forwarded to the Seneca County Humane Society.

“We would like to remind citizens that leaving any animal inside of a vehicle during the summer months is extremely dangerous and life threatening,” Fostoria Police Chief Keith Loreno said in the news release.
