Cynthia was also hurt by the driver’s short, heartless note.
“All I saw on the note was ‘Tobey’ and ‘he’s dead,’ and I just started screaming.
“I told my girlfriend to get my kids in the house. My son was asking what was wrong, and I said I needed to find Toby. I guess I didn’t believe it was true.”
PLEASE SHARE! THIS IS TO TRY AND CHANGE @UPS POLICY! WHEN AN A PET IS INJURED OR KILLED THERE SHOULD BE A CALL! IT SHOULD NOT BE IN A SAME CATEGORY AS A PACKAGE. LEAVING A NOTE IS NOT OK! A @ups driver killed my 14 y/o dog, Toby, and left this note on my door! He also put his body where I had to search for him. My phone number was on the package and on my babies collar. You took my baby! You couldn't even call and tell me or give a sincere apology? You thought you could redeliver my package the next day and apologize (according to your supervisor because I reported it and you did not )? We weren't worth your time that day? I had to come home WITH MY KIDS and find a note! Do you know how traumatizing that is for a 6 year old boy?! I'm sick. My whole family is sick. This is not acceptable! I live far off the main roads. You failed to pay attention and have no heart! You ripped my family into pieces all because of a policy @ups needs to change ! I didn't get to say goodbye to the first dog I have ever owned. He was my family. He was my child's best friend. We deserved a call. #iwantmydogback #mansbestfriend #Dogsmatter #dogs #dogstrust #changeupspolicy #wspca #inhumane #ups @oprahmagazine @oprah #oprah #foxnews @foxnews #nbc @nbc @instagram #instagram
Cynthia claimed she searched for her dog’s body, which she later found hidden in a wooded area under a log.
She also said that the driver was familiar with her pet, as he delivered packages frequently.
He could have even called the number on Toby’s collar.
“If he would have called me, it would have lightened the blow a little bit,” she said. “I don’t ever want to see his face again.”
Things got worse when a UPS representative told her:
“At least he had the heart to leave a note and didn’t just leave your dog dead on your driveway.”
