Justice for Dogs Enduring Burns from Being Forced to Sit in Chemicals

Target: Miami-Dade Police Director J.D. Patterson

Goal: Investigate allegations that dogs at Miami-Dade Animal Services are enduring burns because they’re forced to sit on floors covered in unnecessary chemicals.

A former supervisor of Miami-Dade Animal Services revealed that many dogs in her center ended up with severe burns to their scrotal area, but despite her reporting the incident and expressing concern that employees may not have been following protocols, she says the issue still continues because of the chemicals used on the floors. This is the same center that’s been touted as a “high-kill” shelter by the public, but they ignore the pleas to stop the use of corrosive chemicals.

These poor animals are locked up and forced to sit as the substances burn away the flesh on the most sensitive parts of their bodies. It’s unacceptable that the animal shelter doesn’t care enough to simply change the cleaning products they’re using on the floors. Please demand that the Miami-Dade Police help ensure an animal cruelty investigation is opened against the center.


Dear Director Patterson,

It’s been brought to our attention that numerous dogs in the Miami-Dade Animal Services center have been forced to endure burns to their scrotums for years. A former supervisor alleges that it’s due to the chemicals the shelter insists on using despite the horrific burns the dogs continuously endure.

Photos posted to social media showed the extent of the injuries these poor animals have sustained. This cannot be ignored any longer. Continuing to use corrosive chemicals is essentially tormenting the animals who have to sit on the floors, and this is animal cruelty. We ask you to help open an investigation into this shelter’s sick practices.

    This shelter should be closed forever. Anyone who could sit back and let this happen is a cold and heartless person. Animals should be treated as family members. Would they make their mother, father, child or any of their family members be FORCED to endure this treatment? I’d hate to be in their families if they would.
    It’s BS and should be STOPPED IMMEDIATELY!

  2. Jan Martinez says:

    Yet one more heinous crime against defenceless animals.Who the hell thinks up these barbaric tortures? If there’s any justice in the world, humans will get back tenfold the cruelty they perpetrate.

  3. Innocent animals suffer at the hands of cruel humans…I hope they will be closed down and they get severe criminal terms…this should never have happened and they know it! They must be sadistic in nature to do something like this and not an excuse! Crimes against animals are not severe enough…Animal abusers should be put on a website for the world to see.

    • Penalties for crimes against animals are not severe enough!

      A website putting animal abusers on notice…shaming them…LOVE IT! Maybe the threat of everybody they know seeing what garbage they really are will stop them from sick behavior. They have a site for sex offenders and I think I’d like to know if my neighbors are dangerous so I can keep my pets safe too.

  4. Let the scumbags sit also in chemicals till their arsches are burnt what a horrible and barbaric thing to do to these dogs. I hope some justice is done and this place closes down and the poor dogs get a better place to be

  7. The ABUSERS need to be made to sit in chemicals and have their scrotes burned!

  8. Charlene Maroni says:

    This shelter should be closed forever. Karma. When you’re burning in hell don’t ask why

  9. Fergus” was one of four dogs suffering from chemical burns who were brought to the Lancaster Animal Shelter. Two of the dogs were so badly injured they had to be euthanized.

  10. Nail the bastards balls to the floor and pour the same chemicals over them.

  11. Justice be served always
