Target: Williamson County, Illinois District Attorney
Goal: Charge former veterinarian with animal cruelty.
Officers were called recently to a home in Williamson County, Illinois after a neighbor complained about the smell of the home. Inside, the police allegedly found dozens of dogs and cats living in crates as well as other animals. The floors were covered in several inches of feces.
The woman who was living at the home, Elisa Kirkpatrick, said she is a former veterinarian who lost her license in 2014 because of complaints from clients. She allegedly said she was still performing surgeries on animals in her home and her clients would allow her to pick up and drop off their animals so they never saw the living conditions.
Several dead animals were also found. Fortunately, over 60 animals were removed and brought to shelters.
Urge authorities to charge her with animal cruelty.
Dear Williamson County, Illinois District Attorney,
Sixty animals were recently removed from the home of Elisa Kirkpatrick. The animals were allegedly found living in cages and there were several inches of feces covering the floor. Kirkpatrick says she is a former veterinarian who lost her license in 2014 but is allegedly still performing surgeries on animals in her home.
We the undersigned urge you to press charges of animal cruelty against Elisa Kirkpatrick for allegedly keeping so many animals in such horrid conditions.
