Target: Aldwin Roman, Director of Anti-Cruelty and Outreach at Charleston Animal Society

Goal: Thank animal society for being the voice for a malnourished dog and helping to convict the owner for his crime.

A man from South Carolina was convicted of animal abuse because of an earlier case in 2015 where his dog, a male mastiff named Miles, was discovered to be malnourished and over 70 pounds underweight.

Christian Jorgen Fahnoe was sentenced to jail time in Charleston Municipal Court, but the time will be lifted if he pays off his fines and reimburses the Charleston Animal Society for the medical care and treatments that his dog received. Nonetheless, Fahnoe still lost custody of his dog to the Animal Society. When the police rescued the pet, he was extremely underweight and badly dehydrated. He was also suffering from a terrible skin condition and other health conditions. According to the police reports, the dog had been living in a cramped space that was scattered with debris and animal feces while under Fahnoe’s supervision.

Charleston Animal Society became the compassionate team behind the rescue of Miles the dog, which led to an abundance of support from the rest of the community. Since being rescued, Miles has been able to gain over 20 pounds back.

Please sign this petition to thank the Charleston Animal Society for nursing Miles back to health and putting the careless owner in jail.


Dear Director Aldwin Roman,

It is sickening to hear that Christian Jorgen Fahnoe left his own pet in his home to starve to death. Not only was Miles starving, but he was also suffering from a number of health ailments. Although there are so many animal shelters and rescue projects out there, these people would rather let their pets suffer and die in the cruelest ways.

Thank you to you and your team at the Charleston Animal Society for being the support that Miles the dog needs in his life. With your help, he gained back his weight and was able to be cured of his health issues. It shows that just a little bit of love and care can change an animal’s life. Thank you for helping so many animals from horrible owners like this one. All animals deserve a second chance at life and you are giving that to them.

    It’s a good day when an animal is saved and the abuser is prosecuted. Kudos to all who were involved in helping this poor dog. Miles will be a happy dog now and thrive in a loving home.
