Demand Justin Bieber Take Responsibility for Abandoned Pet


Target: Justin Bieber

Goal: Insist that pop icon Justin Bieber find a home for a dog he abandoned at a training facility

For Christmas 2013, pop star Justin Bieber got an American Bulldog puppy and asked his online fans to name the dog. The name Karma was chosen from fan suggestions. In February 2014, he left Karma at a training facility to be returned with the 20-year-old musician on his way back to America. When Bieber did not pick up American Bulldog pup, the trainers tried to reach him several times. As of now, the dog remains in the care of the trainers, for whose services Bieber has not paid.

This is not the first time the pop icon has displayed irresponsibility toward his pets. At a concert, he handed a caged hamster to a fan, telling her to take care of it for him. The hamster died about half a year later. When Bieber’s pet monkey, Mally, was seized at an airport because he did not have proper vaccination paperwork, customs officials gave the singer an opportunity to pick up the monkey. Rather than produce the necessary veterinary paperwork and retrieve the pet, he abandoned the animal at the airport. The monkey was sent to an animal sanctuary in Munich, and Bieber was billed for the cost of its medical care and vaccinations.

So far, Justin Beiber has been eager to use animals as publicity stunts, but has shown carelessness and irresponsibility toward their care afterwards. The singer, who is an idol to children and teens across the world, should be more careful about the message he is sending to impressionable young people. Sign the petition below to demand that Bieber take responsibility for his abandoned pet by finding it a permanent adoptive home.


Dear Mr. Justin Bieber,

You abandoned Karma, a young American Bulldog, at a dog training facility in February, when you left her to be trained before returning to America. Before that, you gave a caged hamster to a fan and left a pet monkey with an airport customs department.

These animals are sentient creatures and deserve better than to be abandoned after you use them for publicity on your social media accounts. We, the undersigned, demand that you show more responsibility in taking care of your pets, beginning with finding a permanent home for Karma.

    Grow up you little asshole and take care of your animals and stop using them as publicity stunts.

  2. Deanna Rempel says:

    I will not sign this petition since he obviously will not respond to public opinion now (he never has in the past). I will, however, sign one asking that he be prosecuted and prohibited from ever owning pets in the future.

  3. I would gladly take karma to make sure she has a loveing home. I have five dogs and big yard for her to play in. We treat are dogs like family. My grand kids have and are growing up with r dogs. All i would ask in return is for the artist pay all travel arrangements and vaccines and to NEVER get another pet of any kind.

  4. Mr. Bieber –

    You seem not to appreciate nor understand the value of any animal. You would be wise not to get another animal of any kind if this is your callous disregard and treatment/abandonment of each animal you have taken in. You lack the traits of being a responsible pet owner and in that regard, are very immature. It may take you years to grow up and respect the lives of animals but I suspect that will not happen so please, leave animal compassion to those who “get it” and you can go on living your celebrity life, god willing, without another animal for you.

  5. Cecily Colloby says:

    This Bieber creature has as much talent as a cowpat and this obviously extends to his “care” of animals. Ban him from ever going near another animal, let alone “owning” one….

  6. Justin Bieber is a real asshole. I do not understand how such a stupid boy as he is still allowed to keep an animal – he shows no responsibility. People like him should not be allowed to keep any animals !!!
