Save Dog from Neglectful and Abusive Owner

Target: Devon Anderson, Houston District Attorney

Goal: Rescue dog from abusive and neglectful conditions and investigate and punish applicable parties.

In a small community in Houston, TX, neighbors have been unable to rescue this dog from horrendous conditions, despite numerous attempts. According to a recent article in The Dodo and posts on a dog rescue Facebook page, this animal is never taken for walks. Instead, the poor pup is tied up on a second level balcony style porch all day where its bowel and bladder movements leak onto the neighbor below. When this was mentioned to the dog’s owner, the dog was fitted with a diaper.

Likely as a result of these filthy living conditions, the dog whines. Neighbors surmise that the owner doesn’t like this as the dog has been seen with both old phone cord and thick rubber bands wrapped around its snout. Police and the Harris County Animal Control have been contacted numerous times but to no avail, nor is there any explanation from either of these authorities as to why the dog is allowed to remain in such deplorable conditions. Instead, it appears that neighbors concerns are shrugged off. In a YouTube video, officers can be heard telling a neighbor not to worry about it, stating that the man didn’t know how to care for dogs but they’ve explained it to him.

No living creature deserves to suffer in this manner. Tell the District Attorney to strongly suggest an investigation into all parties involved and demand the highest punishment for those found guilty. We must act now to save this innocent and neglected dog.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Anderson,

The community of The Villas of Westador Condominiums in Houston needs your help. According to reports, they’ve tried on numerous occasions to work through proper channels to rescue an abused and neglected dog and seek punishment of the owner. None of these attempts have succeeded and, in some cases, may have caused the dog further abuse.

Neighbors have tried everything from confronting the owner to calling rescue organizations and police. They have not been heard and the dog continues to languish in its own filth, which is held close to its body by a diaper and is unable to drink, eat, or clean itself due its mouth being held closed with either phone cord or rubber bands. This dog has suffered enough and needs to be rescued immediately. We demand that its owner be punished and the authorities who’ve neglected their responsibility to save it must be investigated and charged accordingly.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. must get a rescue for this great dog being neglected now.

  3. It is horrible enough that the poor dog is being abused, but the fact that NO ONE, in authority, or animal rescue group is saving this sad animal is outrageous!

    Houston has a lot of problems with animal welfare. This is just another example of the city not caring for the plight of animals. Is everyone there a sociopath?!

    The public should be made aware of this and demand a rescue for this dog (and any other animals) living in this HELL! The newspapers, TV and all social media in Houston MUST be alerted to this terrible injustice!

  4. This is horrible now way should these assholes get a way with this ,poor Dog needs to be removed and re-homed what a load of morons this would not happen in the U.K This Dog would be outa there .

  5. This is sad. No animal should b treated this way.
    I fully support this cause & hope that lil dog gets rescued sooner then later & I hope the poor lady who tried to do the right thing but ended up in jail gets her wish for the lil dog.

  6. Why is everybody standing around? get a ladder and rescue that poor dog, because tomorrow it will be dead. unfortunately I live in Canada, or I would do it myself
