Target: Judges of Carlisle, Kentucky
Goal: Ensure that the owner of starved dog is charged with the maximum punishment legally allowed for animal cruelty
Recently, a dog was found in an extremely neglected and emaciated state in Carlisle, Kentucky. Local police found the dog while serving a warrant; they initially thought the dog was dead given the condition they found him in. The dog, now named “Snow Chief,” was found chained outside, weighing about half of what he was supposed to weigh. Surprisingly, the owner of the dog claimed she was not at fault and did nothing wrong to this poor animal. This woman must be made aware of her crimes and be charged with animal cruelty.
While it is evident that Snow Chief has suffered a miserable life at the hands of his previous owner, he will no longer have to suffer thanks to the police officers that rescued him and the animal welfare society that took him in. Snow Chief is currently being cared for and treated at the Nicholas County Animal Welfare Society. Upon arriving there, veterinarians were stunned and claimed that he was the thinnest dog they had ever seen; they believed that Snow Chief would have died within 48 hours if he were not rescued. Despite everything he has been through, Snow Chief is demonstrating his remarkable will to live and is making a recovery.
Justice has yet to be attained for Snow Chief. Reports say that his previous owner will “likely” face charges for animal cruelty. This is completely unacceptable; his previous owner must be convicted of animal abuse and be punished to the fullest extent for the crimes she has committed against Snow Chief. Sign the petition below to demand that this woman’s crime will not be taken lightly in court and that she will receive the maximum punishment allowed for animal cruelty.
Dear Judges of Carlisle,
A dog named Snow Chief is fighting for his life after being a victim of abuse and neglect. Snow Chief has suffered at the hands of his owner, a woman who believes she has done nothing wrong to this poor dog. This dog was found chained outside of her home in an emaciated state teetering between life and death; there is no way she can claim that she did nothing wrong to this animal when his suffering was a direct result of her neglect.
Reports say that this woman will “likely” face charges of animal abuse. This is unacceptable; she must be punished for the crimes she has committed against Snow Chief. Please take the action to ensure this woman is made aware of her crimes and that she will be given the maximum punishment allowed for animal cruelty.
