Target: Shaun Sawyer, Chief Constable of the Devon and Cornwall Police

Goal: Urgently release dog caged for two years to U.S. sanctuary willing to take her in.

A sweet pit bull dog named Stella has been languishing in a police cage for two years, reportedly without ever being walked or socialized. The dog has allegedly been caged without exercise by the Devon and Cornwall police since being removed from her owner in 2014. According to a whistleblower, Stella has only been let out of her cage twice in two years for behavioral assessments. The dog was taken from her owner because she was a banned breed, despite having never shown aggression.

Now, the Animals R Family rescue center in Stamford, Connecticut has offered to take Stella in and even pay for the dog to be flown from the United Kingdom to the United States. The charity has said that “breed-specific legislation is wrong and ineffective” and that “Stella is a sweet and friendly pit bull who wants love and a family.”

Urge the Devon and Cornwall police department to release Stella to the sanctuary willing to give her a better life, so that this sweet dog can finally have the exercise and care she deserves.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chief Constable Sawyer,

Please urgently release Stella the pit bull to the U.S. sanctuary willing to take her in and pay for her flight over. Stella has reportedly been languishing in a cage with no exercise or proper socialization for two years after being removed from her owner in 2014 for being a banned breed. However, Stella has never shown aggression and is by all reports a “sweet and friendly” dog, proving that breed-specific legislation is a faulty system.

I urge you to allow Stella to be sent to the Animals R Family rescue center in Stamford, Connecticut so that this innocent dog may finally receive the care and exercise she deserves.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Why is this even in question, or need a petition? Why has she not been sent already. It is obvious she is not wanted where she is at

  2. Gaynor whittles says:

    Thank you so much for starting a petition for Stella and kindly taking her to somewhere safe it saddened me when I read about her these laws are just no justifiable good luck

  3. She’s being treated worse than a serial killer and is guilty of nothing! NO exercise! No sunlight?! This is a living being,’shameful and unconscionable ‘rules’.

  4. PLEASE PLEASE THIS IS A WIN WIN SITUATION FOR BOTH STELLA AND THE SHELTER WHERE SHE HAS BEEN HELD. PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS GREAT OFFER AND LET STELLA FLY TO THE US AND A SANCTUARY WHERE THEY WILL MAKE SURE SHE FINDS A WONDERFUL AND LOVING HOME WHICH SHE DESERVES AS SHE DID NOTHING TO DESERVE BEING HELD IN A CAGE FOR TWO YEARS.
    THE WORLD IS WATCHING PLEASE DO THE RIGHT THING AND HELP MAKE STELLA’S REMAINING YEARS GREAT BY SENDING HER TO THE US AND A SANCTUARY.

    READ MORE AND SEE A VIDEO below about a SECOND DOG SEIZED BY DEVON AND CORNWALL POLICE kept in kennel for two years (Stella would be the 2nd dog, which obviously demonstrates that there was already another dog also confined in a small cage, then got killed).

    ALLOW STELLA to be sent to the Animals R Family rescue center in Stamford, Connecticut so that this innocent dog may finally receive the care and exercise she deserves.

  6. What is the point of imprisoning a dog this way? Let Stella go to the US where there are reasonable people who know that breed specific legislation (BSL) is for morons. This is nothing but animal cruelty.

  7. what kind of sick bastards treat an animal like this….

  8. Stephanie Goldstone-Creasey says:

    She’s free. Adopted by a sanctuary worker.

  9. Please stop breed discrimination in UK it is both unfair and cruel. Am thankful that sweet loving Stella has been adopted by a sanctuary worker in the US. Hope she finds love and happiness in her new forever home.

  10. Stop & pursue this deformity – instantly!

    Not humane than barbaric, really stupid and worthless criminal and ignorant ASSHOLES, which should be caged for their whole lives! Or not?

    THE DEVIL SHOULD TAKE ALL RESPONSIBLE PERSONS AWAY – ONCE FOR ALL !

    ALL OF THAT INHUMANE MUD AND RESPONSIBLE NONPERSONS ARE ONLY SENSELESS FOR ALL OTHER TERRESTRIALS – FEED THEM TO ALLIGATORS !

  11. Please let this poor dog go to a sanctuary. How cruel to treat a feeling living creature this way. Shameful!
