Good news!

The dog that was found stuffed in a suitcase and left in an Etobicoke park is doing well!

She’s in the care of Toronto Animal Services who gave an update on her, and they’ve named her Casey:

We have received a dog that was found in a suitcase in Lambton park in Etobicoke over the weekend. Two joggers happened to be in a trail that is not frequented often when they saw something moving in a suitcase. Upon investigation, they realized a dog was trapped inside. She was scared but alive. She is now in our care and we’re calling her Casey. We gave Casey a vet check this morning, and found that she is a fairly healthy 5 to 7 year old Jack Russell Terrier, who may have had a litter of puppies in the past. Casey was initially timid with us, but she warms up quickly, especially when treats are involved. We are giving her space and letting her know she’s in a safe place. Once she has been with us for some time and we have been able to assess her fully, we will try to find a good outcome for her, which may include adoption. Please keep an eye on this page and our website,, for her updates and her availability. Dogs are posted online the evening before they become available for adoption. If you have any information on Casey’s former owners, contact Toronto Police at 416-808, 1100 or Crime Stoppers anonymously (416-222-TIPS or If you see a dog kept outdoors in unsafe conditions, contact 311 so we can help. If you need to surrender an animal, you can do so at any of our three shelters, regardless of where you live in Toronto. We take in every animal surrendered to us regardless of their health, age, breed, or behavior – and regardless of your situation. We know that people surrender their pets for many reasons, and always try to work with them to educate them about their options. If there isn’t a solution, we will accept the pet by appointment, or immediately if it’s an emergency. Never abandon your pet in an unsafe place, under any circumstances. There is always a better option. Please, please contact us so we can help you find the best option for you and your pet. We can take your dog if you need help.

And if you know the scum that put Casey in the suitcase in the first place, please let police know.

This is a horrible thing.
