Justice for Puppies and Reptiles Found Dead in Freezer


Target: Jeffrey L. Arnold, Delaware Country Prosecutor

Goal: Punish man who allegedly killed puppies and reptiles, and kept other dogs in mud and feces.

Ryan Pelfrey was allegedly found with eighteen dead puppies and six reptiles in his freezer. The 23-year-old reportedly also had 46 dogs in his home, and is facing charges of animal cruelty and neglect. Animal control had been called after a meter reader was horrified by the animals’ living conditions and called the police.

It is reported that the 46 dogs were living in mud and feces. Some witnesses stated that every part of the house had feces on it. An investigator for the city’s animal control stated that Pelfrey kept three or four dogs in each kennel, and that he is certain that there was dog fighting involved. Animal Control also found the dead puppies and reptiles in plastic bags in the freezer. Reportedly, there were also dead turtles in the freezer, and it is unclear as to why Pelfrey was keeping them there.

All of the dogs were washed and examined at Pine Acres Kennels. Local veterinarians came to attend to the animals, vaccinating and evaluating each animal’s status of health. Some of the animals had parts of their face or ears missing, and others were too weak to walk. The dogs will remain at Pine Acres for 30 days while Pelfrey is facing his charges, and all are expected to make a full recovery.

Ryan Pelfrey is being held in the Delaware County Jail on a $65,000 bond. He is facing charges of animal cruelty and neglect. Please support this petition by signing below, and bring justice to all these animals.


Dear Prosecutor Arnold,

Ryan Pelfrey allegedly had 46 dogs kept in urine, feces, and small kennels in his home. It is also reported that there were eighteen dead puppies and six lizards in his freezer. He is now facing various charges of animal neglect and cruelty.

I support bringing justice for these animals, and to prevent further damage to other animals. Please support a fair punishment for these cruel acts by convicting this man.

    This man isn’t sick so let’s not use this excuse to give him leniency.

  2. madalene says:

    No leniency! Maximum penalty for this sick bastard.

  3. Prosecute this sick & twisted subhuman monster & forbid him to ever have another animal in his possession for the rest of his sorry, miserable life. Get Ryan Pelfrey out of society for as long as possible, because it is obvious that he is uncivilized. This is one mean, hateful individual who does not need exposure to any life form on this planet. I hope he burns in hell for eternity!!!

  4. Rita Grahn says:

    What type of vermin lives where “every part of the house had feces on it”? Were they human or animal feces? And to think the poor animals had to live with a scumball like that! Disgusting. I say: lock him in a septic tank full of human excrement for the rest of his life, and let him see if he likes it!

  5. Linda Amundson says:

    I hope necropsies are or will be performed on the dead puppies and turtles. I doubt they all died of natural causes.

    Yes, Ryan Pelfrey is demented but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t know the difference between right and wrong. If he didn’t know the difference between right and wrong, he’d be doing this to humans, as well.

    As the FBI has said, animal abuse is a “crime against society,” and will be categorized as a Class A felony, same as murder and arson. It’s time to abuse and other crimes against animals as seriously as most animal spokespeople and caregivers, and now the FBI, have known it is. Put this nasty, cruel person away and make him pay for all the care of the dogs, as it’s his fault, but do NOT let him have these or any other animals in his ‘care’ ever again. He will NOT change.

  6. Linda Amundson says:

    Per my comment above: …that is “time to take abuse and other crimes against animals…”

  7. Cynthia dsouza says:

    Pls shoot that fucking bitch

  8. Cecily Colloby says:

    Make him live in his own excrement for a few months -then FREEZE him to death….

  9. This “waste of space” should be in prison FOR LIFE !!!!!

  10. Manel Dias says:

    Ryan Pelfrey is a heartless, evil scumbag. Now those people who are investigating this man’s atrocity & sadism should not come back to say that this man was not in his proper mind when he did all this evilness towards the helpless. Any one can know, that he had intentionally put through ALL those poor animals in an unimaginable living hell.This man should be recognized as a extremely cruel individual and should be incarcerated for the longest time possible. Such actions done towards the helpless, defenseless innocent Animals, undoubtedly, outrageous & infuriating. Let this scumbag rot in the prison cell, as the same way he made those voiceless sentient beings suffer in silent. Punish him to the full extend and when doing so only, many other sadistic, pathetic scumbags also will stop & think before they commit such vicious cruelty acts against the innocent Animals.

  11. Animals MUST be protected — they are innocent and vulnerable — they deserve our love, care, protection and respect! They have the right to live healthy lives happily and comfortably — ALL WHO ABUSE, HARM AND KILL ANIMALS should be jailed — if imprisonment doesn’t teach these idiots the right lesson, they should be thrown into rubber rooms for the mentally deficient, for the psychopaths, for the sociopaths! SOCIETY MUST TREAT THESE CRIMES SERIOUSLY and TAKE THE SICKOS OFF THE STREETS!
