Former Ultimate Fighting Championship winner Frank Shamrock is facing animal cruelty charges after he admitted to leaving his mother’s 7-year-old labrador, Zelda, tied to a pickup truck in a parking garage at Dallas’ Love Field for five days.

Shamrock left the dog on March 2 after putting out a plea on Facebook for someone to take in Zelda after his mother could no longer care for her. He claimed he called “every shelter and no kill pet center within 200 miles,” according to the post.

In a video with TMZ, Shamrock admitted to leaving Zelda in the back of the truck, but that he had left her with food and water and told airport security that Zelda was there and that he wanted them to check on her.

“I would have never imagine myself in that position, having to make a decision like that,” Shamrock said in the video. “I love animals so it just broke my heart to even think about being in that position, but that’s where I ended up. Honestly I did everything humanly possible for that animal.”

Zelda was rescued after five days. She was cared for by Dallas Animal Services and eventually transferred to SPCA of Texas in March. On Wednesday, SPCA of Texas posted that a couple had adopted Zelda after “they fell in love with her instantly.”

According to SPCA of Texas’ post, the investigation against Shamrock is ongoing and the Dallas Police Department expects to file a charge of cruelty to non-livestock animals for “abandoning an animal without making reasonable arrangements for assumption of custody by another person.”
