A California animal rescue organization has some harsh words for the person who abandoned a dog on the side of a rural road.

After receiving several messages about a dog that was left near a road, Kings SPCA-Rescue went to see if they could find the abandoned pup.

When they found the dog, they were filled with rage and decided to send a message to the dog’s previous owner.

“Dear The Callous POS owner of this dog,” the letter, which was posted to the group’s Facebook page, read.

“He waited for you. He hadn’t left the place you made him stay. He was being a good dog. He stayed close to the last place he saw his favorite person in the world. He thought you were coming back. He was watching every car that would come down the road hoping it was you coming back for him. Your dog has been freezing, hungry, and scared for days because you are a heartless piece of crap.”

“He waited for you. He was so hungry that he was eating sticks. Nice people had stopped to drop off food but he was still so hungry and confused. But even with food sitting in front of him he knew he had to wait for you to come back. He waited for you. He isn’t a bad do. He is a very good dog. You were a bad friend. You abandoned someone that would give his life for you. Someone who doesn’t car how long you stayed away at work. Someone who is just as happy to see you if u just go outside to check the mail or if you leave for days. Someone who would lick the tears off your cheeks and the leftover food from your plate when u were done eating. He wont’ be waiting for you anymore.”

Volunteers say it took hours to coax the dog, who has been named Banjo, from his spot. They believe he had been outside five days before being rescued.

“He didn’t panick (sic) until it was time to leave. He wanted to wait for you. He refused to walk to the van. I carried your huge dog to our van; your big, gentle, scared, and loyal dog. I carried your dog away from the last place he saw you. He howled the whole car ride to our shelter. He howled the most painful howl I have ever heard. It was the sound of his heart breaking. He desperately tried to get back to the spot that you left him. He frantically checked every window then watched out the back window as we drove away.”

“I don’t care who you are or your excuse as to why you abandoned my dog. It’s probably a BS reason anyways. You are a scum bag. I pray your year is filled with karma and bad health,” the letter finishes.

Since the Facebook post, the shelter has received several calls from people asking to adopt the dog.
