Justice for Dog Found Starving and Near Death With Seizures

lex-the-dog-via-richmond-animal-care-and-control

Target: Alfred Durham, Chief of Police, Richmond, Virginia

Goal: Find and punish person responsible for starving a pit bull until it was near death.

A dog was recently found starving and walking the streets. The dog was severely emaciated, with many of its bones, including its spine and its ribs showing. Though the pit bull, now named Lexington, has been taken in by animal care, his condition is so poor that it is still unknown whether or not he will recover.

Twelve hours after he was found, Lex was unable to walk and was experiencing multiple severe seizures. He was put on intravenous fluids and given anti-seizure medication. While the dog is making progress, care staff are still unsure whether he will ever properly recover and be able to be placed into a foster home.

The dog’s poor condition suggests that he was starved for a long period of time before being thrown on the streets. A dog on the streets could generally find scraps to eat from the trash. If the dog was roaming the streets in such poor condition for so long, it’s likely that a concerned citizen would have taken him in.

So far, the police have not yet identified a suspect in this case, meaning that the person responsible could be abusing more animals. In order to protect more animals from similar fates, it is imperative that the person responsible for this shocking neglect is found. Sign the petition below to demand that police find and punish the person responsible for this egregious case of animal cruelty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Durham,

A pit bull was recently found walking the streets, starving and with its spine, ribs, and bones visible. The dog was in such poor condition that after being transported to an animal hospital, it lost the ability to walk and began suffering from multiple severe seizures. Even after the dog received intravenous fluids and anti-seizure medication, its condition is still so poor that it is unknown whether or not he will survive.

So far, the police have not found a suspect in this case. This means that the person responsible for the severe neglect of this animal could still be mistreating other animals. In order to protect dogs from similar torture and mistreatment, it is imperative that they are apprehended immediately. We, the undersigned, ask you to dedicate extra resources to investigating this case and apprehending the person responsible for starving this dog.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  3. IT’S DISGRACEFUL AND SICKENING THAT ANYONE HUMAN BEING WOULD DO THIS TO AN ANIMAL AND WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS ??? HOPE THEY FIND YOU AND PUT YOU AND WHO EVER KNEW ABOUT THIS AND DIDN’T HELP AWAY

  4. A cancer curse on the bastard low life who did this to this innocent helpless animal. Find the cretin and give him a taste of his own medicine. Better still hang the moron in public.

  5. A human that can harm a dog is a worthless human being. They are such loving, caring, and intelligent creatures that human kind has created and they rely on us for survival. Hurting a dog like this should come with the same penalty that would be assessed if this was done to a person. People disgust me these days and it seems to be getting worse with each passing year.

  6. Such a gorgeous, sweet baby! The person/persons should be sentenced to jail time for a minimum of 10 years. This poor baby must have suffered terrible. Heartbreaking

  7. Catherine Dugan says:

  8. Get your Country cleaned up you are a disgrace to rest of world

  9. Another piece of shark food!

  10. Such a pitiful sight! Please find and punish the perpetrator severely for doing this to an innocent harmless doggy!

  11. Certain states appear to be prone to animal neglect, Best the authorities get their ACT together and pursue HUMANE TREATMENT, A MUST FOR ALL ANIMALS

  12. Someone knows who this dog belongs to

  13. Wendy Morrison says:
