PETA issued an exclusive statement to following the news.

“If your dog or child is in a vehicle or even waiting for you at home, that’s an extra incentive never to drive drunk or buzzed, although looking out for strangers and for yourself should already be enough to convince you not to drink and drive," PETA's Senior Vice President Lisa Lange told this outlet, adding, "PETA’s glad Shannon Beador and her dog are safe now, and we hope they get over the trauma swiftly.”
