Target: Logan Pickett, District Attorney for Liberty County, Texas
Goal: Prosecute the owners of a rescue facility where more than 150 animals were found in various stages of neglect.
More than 150 animals have been rescued from a supposed animal rescue facility, where they were found in poor condition. They lived in their own waste and suffered injuries related to neglect. Demand justice for these innocent animals.
“What we found today at this facility is unacceptable,” stated Tara Yurkshat, vice president of animal welfare at the Houston SPCA. Liberty County Sheriff’s deputies, along with SPCA investigators, responded to reports of animal cruelty at the Puppy-Dogs-R-Us shelter in Dayton. There, they found over 150 animals living in their own waste without access to food or water. Some were found in rusty wire crates and others in flooded enclosures.
The Houston SPCA will be caring for the animals until permanent custody can be established. Liberty County has not yet decided if it will pursue criminal charges. Sign below to demand that the district attorney pursue criminal charges in this case.
Dear District Attorney Pickett,
Over 150 animals were found in deplorable conditions at a supposed animal rescue facility. Dogs, cats, and a horse were discovered living in filth. We demand justice for these innocent animals.
The animals found on the 20-acre property appeared to suffer from various degrees of neglect. Kennel enclosures were flooded, forcing some of the dogs to stand on top of the kennels to escape the murky water. Others were found in rusty wire cages stacked on top of each other in a dark shed. Many of the animals lacked access to food and water.
We demand that you pursue criminal charges against those deemed responsible for this horrific abuse.
[Your Name Here]
