Punish Women Accused of Starving Animals

Target: St. Petersburg Police Chief Anthony Holloway

Goal: Fully prosecute the two women who allegedly abused animals by leaving them in feces-covered cages without food or water.

Two women, Patricia Gates Scites and Veronica Anne Faulseit, in St. Petersburg, Florida, were arrested recently after authorities were alerted of possible animal neglect occurring in Faulseit’s home. Animal control officers raided the home and found more than 40 animals including 22 dogs, 14 puppies, 15 cats, raccoons, ducks, birds and an opossum who were living in deplorable conditions in their own feces and without adequate food or water.

Animals were allegedly being kept in cages outside the home in a carport where they were barking so incessantly it worried neighbors. Some of the dogs had clear signs of ringworm, others were malnourished. One dog had staples in its head. Litter boxes were filthy and overflowing. The raccoons were overcrowded in a cage covered in urine and feces, and numerous cats were found covered in urine and feces as well. Some of the animals had no water at all, while others had water dishes filled with cloudy water and feces floating in it. Authorities could not find any medical records to show if the animals had been receiving any proper veterinary care.

The two women ran an animal rescue group, All Creatures Great and Small Wildlife Inc., where they had a permit to rehabilitate wildlife. Unfortunately, this is not what was occurring. Faulseit would often take in foster pets from the local animal services, but her account was frozen after authorities discovered she had not returned the pets.

Luckily, these neglected animals are now being treated under veterinary care and kept at animal services. However, these women allegedly performed sickening acts of animal cruelty and neglect and need to face the consequences for their actions if so. Demand these women receive the maximum punishment for their heinous animal neglect.


Dear Chief Holloway,

Patricia Gates Scites and Veronica Anne Faulseit were arrested recently after animal control officers raided Faulseit’s home and allegedly found more than 40 animals including 22 dogs, 14 puppies, 15 cats, raccoons, ducks, birds and an opossum who were living in deplorable conditions in their own feces and without adequate food or water. Many of the animals were diseased and malnourished, living in overcrowded conditions where they were covered in their own urine and feces.

These women contributed in running an animal rescue group and even had a permit to help rehabilitate wildlife, but instead they committed sickening acts of animal cruelty and neglect. This kind of behavior under the guise of helping animals must be punished. I urge you to punish these women with the maximum penalty under law if they are convicted for their crimes.

    Make sure to give the Punishment to fit the crimes they committed. These type of Animal cruelty should not let go
    unpunished. The laws are there to protect the vulnerable animals & people alike. Do the right things to save & protect the planet from evil.

  2. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, we have to do something about these poor dogs being slaudered and skinned alive. This is not human.. I watched the videos and it makes me cry. Dogs have feelings and feel pain. I have three myself and I love them dearly.. They are my family. Please help stop boiling these dogs alive. China needs to take action on this dog slaudering.

  3. Those two should be put in cages and left without food or water and see how they feel! This cannot go unpnished! They deserve the law to come down harshly on them and to set an example to others out there that they cannot commit these crimes! Its outrages!

  4. Cecily Colloby says:

    Totally agree with Rose-put these vile women in cages and starve them.

  5. It is difficult to believe the cruelty and torment that animals endure at the hands of nasty bitches like the two that starved these animals and let them live in filth. These women are sick & twisted individuals and should be punished harshly with the worst punishment possible. They should also be forbidden by the court to ever have another animal in their possession for the rest of their sorry, miserable lives, then they should be listed on an animal cruelty/torment registry so that people around them will know what is living in their midst and they can report any suspicious activity where animals are concerned. These two pieces of crap need to be monitored CLOSELY!!!

  6. Basta con questa stupida mattanza.
