KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Kansas City police are investigating after someone left a dog in a sweltering car at Kauffman Stadium during a Kansas City Royals baseball game.

The dog was rescued by fans who heard it whimpering when they left a game on Sunday. The fans took the dog, which had no access to food and water, into the stadium and left a note for the car’s owner.

As of Monday afternoon, no one had claimed the dog, which is being kept at a shelter. It will be up for adoption if the owners don’t contact the shelter within five days.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/28JGoed ) one of the dog’s rescuers is interested in adopting the puppy.

The penalty for animal cruelty is up to $1,000 or 180 days in jail.
