Punish President of Florida Animal Shelter for Alleged Animal Cruelty

Target: Charlotte County, Florida Attorney Janette Knowlton

Goal: Help ensure president of animal rescue center accused of animal cruelty and abandonment is punished to the maximum extent possible and is never allowed to work with or own animals again.

The president of a Charlotte county animal rescue center in Florida, Every Creature Salvation, is being charged with neglect after a pit bull under their care was found with terrible health conditions that could have been avoided if the workers were doing their job properly. Among the dog’s health problems were malnourishment, emaciation, and weakness to the point of having trouble walking. This poor, innocent animal was left to basically starve to death due to the carelessness and neglect of the employees.

After seeing the vet report and the dog’s pitiful condition, an officer stated that the the law had definitely been broken in this case. This disgusting abuse is unacceptable, especially coming from someone who is president of an animal center. Under no circumstance should this woman be allowed to own or work with animals again.

The president of the center who is allegedly responsible for the cruelty and neglect is due in court soon. Charlotte County Animal Control has asked that the woman never be allowed to own pets again. Please urge the county attorney to protect innocent animals from this abuser by making sure she is punished to the maximum extent if guilty.


Dear Charlotte County Attorney Janette Knowlton,

The president of an animal rescue center is facing animal cruelty and abandonment charges after a pit bull was discovered in terrible health conditions. It was decided that the pitiful condition of the dog was due to neglect. This woman was the president running a shelter that’s responsible for many animals and this cruelty and neglect is simply unacceptable.

Under no circumstances should she ever be allowed to work with or own an animal again. We urge you to help provide protection to innocent animals by helping to ensure this woman is put behind bars so she won’t ever cause another animal to suffer again.

    I am an advocate for animals and care for many animals – mainly feral. In reading your petition, I only see one case (bad as it is) of neglect and I’m concerned there are more details to this case. Let’s not call for such drastic measures without first getting all the facts. I think we owe it to this woman to allow her to explain what happened before condemning her. It’s only right to presume innocence until proven otherwise.
