Justice for 92 Puppies Kept in Wooden Boxes


Target: Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Goal: Serve justice upon woman who allegedly kept 92 puppies crammed in wooden boxes for a puppy mill.

A woman was allegedly found with 92 puppies in wooden boxes in her home, as well as some horses and turtles. The woman reportedly bred the dogs and ran a puppy mill from her home. The Maricopa County Sheriff Office reports that it is the largest puppy mill it has ever seen and that the conditions the dogs were living in were deplorable.

Police officers entered the home after a tip that the home was unsafe for the animals. When the police entered, they found at least 92 dogs, mostly puppies, in wooden boxes that housed multiple puppies at a time. Many boxes contained the puppies’ waste, and some did not have any food or water inside them. These designer-bred dogs included English bulldogs, labradoodles, and French bulldogs.

After seizing the dogs, four have reportedly died and eleven remain under veterinarian care. Sheriff Arpaio reports that they are doing everything they can to keep them alive, but that the conditions were so poor that there may be nothing they can do for them. The woman now faces 99 counts of failure to provide medical care, 99 counts of failure to provide shelter, and seven counts of failure to provide food following investigation.

These puppies lived in small boxes containing their own waste with limited food and water. If found guilty, this woman needs to be punished to the fullest extent. Please sign this petition to support justice for these abused puppies.


Dear Sheriff Arpaio,

A woman was reportedly running a puppy mill right out of her home and was found with 92 puppies kept in small boxes. These boxes had multiple puppies inside them, contained waste, and no food and water. There were also horses and turtles at the residence that were also neglected.

This woman now faces 205 counts of animal abuse, including 99 counts of failure to provide medical care, 99 counts of failure to provide shelter, and seven counts to provide food following investigation. If found guilty following trial, this woman deserves to be punished to the fullest extent.

Thank you for the work you have done to stop this puppy mill so far. You have my support in moving forward with this trial and investigation. Please work to do the right thing for all these abused animals that truly deserve justice.

  2. Hang this Bitch from the next tree or put her in a wooden crate the size she has been keeping puppies in and let her rot. I hope she never is able to own another animal in her lifetime. or a lifetime in jail would do her some good

    This ‘woman’s’ name is Colleen Jolley, 59, of Wittman, AZ. You can google her ugly mug. Sheriff Joe will do what he can to get her, as he did with the Green Acre Kennels tragedy here one year ago, responsible for 23 dog deaths, but Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery dropped charges against the Flakes, presumably because he publicly supported Sen. Jeff Flake, and Flake’s son and son’s wife were two of the persons directly responsible for the needless deaths of 24 dogs. Attorney Bill Montgomery will be responsible for whether or not charges are brought. Since the Flake’s aren’t involved in this incident, maybe he’ll bring charges.

      Thanks for the info, Linda. Sadly, not surprised that politics trump the lives of abused animals. I know that Sheriff Joe will do whatever he can.

  4. Cram that monster into a tiny box and seal the lid shut !!! Let her get a taste of what those precious, helpless puppies had to experience. There is no excuse for what she did !!!! Absolutely Heartbreaking !!!!

  5. justice doit étre rendue pour cette criminelle doit étre enfermer en prison sans nourriture ni eau faites ce qu’il faut monsieur le shérif, car cette personne doit payerpour ce qu’elle a fait ,aucune excuse pour ces actes.

  6. She belongs no where near animals! Clearly, this woman is mentally unstable. If laws are not enforced SEVERELY, these psychopaths will REPEAT their unconscionable habits! WE DO NOT WANT ANY REPEATS! These innocent animals should be under proper care with the right people! WE AS A SOCIETY SHOULD NOT ALLOW SUCH psychopathic BEHAVIOR against animals — our animals deserve to be protected & properly cared for! WHAT ARE LAWS FOR? PLEASE, SAVE THESE ANIMALS and LOCK up the idiot abusers!
