Target: William E. Garnett, Supreme Court Justice
Goal: Praise Supreme Court Justice Garnett for sending an animal abuser to prison.
Thanks to the influential voices of the ForceChange community, an abused dog is finally getting justice. Alsu Ivanchenko, a 35-year-old New York resident, will serve one year in prison for throwing her dog out of a moving vehicle. Praise Supreme Court Justice William E. Garnett for imposing this sentence and standing up for an innocent dog.
Snowflake, a one-pound Maltese/Shih Tzu puppy, was thrown from a moving car and left for dead. She sustained serious damage to her head and leg and nearly lost her life. Though Ivanchenko did bring the dog to the vet, she refused treatment due to the cost. Ivanchenko then left Snowflake by the railroad tracks to die. Thanks to good Samaritans, the dog’s life was spared. Snowflake was taken to the vet where she was diagnosed with two skull fractures, head trauma, bruising, and a broken leg. The recovery process was long and there were times when it didn’t look like she would pull through.
Ivanchenko was charged with a felony count of aggravated cruelty to animals and two misdemeanor counts: animal abandonment, and overdriving, torturing and injuring animals. She has still not apologized for her actions. Sign below to support Supreme Court Justice Garnett in his decision to convict and punish this animal abuser.
Dear Supreme Court Justice Garnett,
We would like to extend our gratitude for your decision to find Alsu Ivanchenko guilty of aggravated animal cruelty. Her abusive actions towards her dog are inexcusable and cannot go unpunished. Your sentence of one year in prison will go a long way in deterring future animal abusers and granting justice to an innocent dog.
Ivanchenko has been convicted of throwing Snowflake, a one-pound Maltese/Shih Tzu puppy, from a moving car and then abandoning her by the railroad tracks. She sought out veterinary care but then refused treatment due to the cost. Instead of pursuing other options, Ivanchenko stuffed Snowflake into a bag and left her to die.
Thanks to good Samaritans and the help of the ASPCA, Snowflake was found. Her injuries were treated and she is alive today. She has been adopted and is, finally, in a happy home. Thanks to your decision, Ivanchenko will suffer the consequences of her actions and will not be able to harm another innocent animal.
