Target: Marion County, Oregon Courts
Goal: Justice for the dog that was beaten and placed in an oven
An Oregon man is in jail right now after losing his temper with a 9-pound Chihuahua-Pincher he was caring for. Dean Parrish was watching the dog for his grandmother, who was out of state. While he was cooking lunch the dog allegedly nipped at him, which caused Parrish to lose his temper. He grabbed the dog and punched him in his head repeatedly. Parrish has also now admitted that he attempted to strangle the dog. Sign this petition and demand that this man be held accountable for his actions.
Still angry, Parrish went back to cooking and realized he still had his oven on. He then grabbed the dog and threw him in the oven. Parrish admitted to wanting to leave the dog in there, but hearing his brother come in the house changed his mind. His brother noticed what was happening and immediately took the dog to the vet. The dog suffered from bruises and cuts on his head, his fur was severely burned, and he was having trouble walking and standing because his legs were so badly burned.
Dean Parrish could have easily killed this innocent dog. If he can’t control his anger with a small animal, how are we to believe he can control it in other situations? Please sign the petition below to beg the Marion County Oregon courts to convict Parrish of severe animal abuse, and not let him own an animal ever again.
To the Marion County Oregon courts,
We are grateful that Dean Parrish is in your custody and will pay for the animal abuse he has admitted to. The small dog that he hurt will hopefully make a full recovery, but Parrish needs to pay for his actions.
The small dog was repeatedly punched in the head and then thrown into a burning oven. Parrish admitted he would have left the dog in there if his brother hadn’t come in and seen what was going on. This abuse was malicious and intended. Parrish knew what he was doing, and he continued to keep doing it.
We are asking you to please give Parrish the most severe legal punishment possible for his actions. He attempted to murder the small dog, and he even admitted that he would have. He should face harsh consequences for his crimes and should not be allowed to care for animals for the rest of his life.
