Justice for Dog Allegedly Neglected and Allowed to Suffer Needlessly

Target: Anthony D. Gulluni, District Attorney for Hampden County, Massachusetts

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the man and woman who allegedly neglected their dog’s progressive illness, allowing her to suffer needlessly.

A dog was brought into an animal shelter sick and emaciated. She had reportedly suffered for months before her owners surrendered her. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

Bella was in such poor condition when Ronnie and Sarah Crapps brought her into the Dakin Humane Society’s shelter that shelter officials assumed she was there to be euthanized. Instead, her owners reportedly denied knowledge of Bella’s health problems and said that they could no longer take care of her. Bella suffered from chronic infections of her skin, ears, urinary tract and mammary glands. She was emaciated and unable to walk.

Bella remained at the shelter for veterinary care and is improving. Ronnie and Sarah Crapps were each charged with animal cruelty. Sign below and demand that they receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney Gulluni,

A dog nearly died after her serious illnesses were allegedly left untreated for months. Her owners reportedly denied knowledge of her maladies. We demand justice for this innocent dog.

When a veterinarian first saw Bella, she was appalled by the dog’s physical condition. The pit bull terrier’s ribs showed through her skin and she could not walk on her own. She suffered from a fever caused by multiple untreated infections. Though her owners reportedly claimed that she was elderly, it is estimated that Bella is only 2 years old.

This poor dog suffered due to her owners’ alleged neglect. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

    Why this EVIL? What kind of World are we living in. I´m ashamed to be human, My God why do so called people get pets when they don´t want them and don´t attend to care for them?? Why this EVIL?

  2. Drop the “s” off their last name, and that pretty well describes them. They really aren’t even worth crap! May Karma visit them both very soon.

  3. Paula Eggleston says:

    Please punish these animal abusers to the fullest extent of the law, and prevent them from owning another animal ever again! No animal should suffer the way this poor dog did…horrific. Hope they don’t have children…

  4. Cynthia Mattera says:

    They didn’t realize she had health issues? Really??? Good, charge them both with a felony! This poor girl suffered for a long time and they did NOTHING about it. Its time people be held accountable for animal neglect and abuse!

  5. michelle mitchell says:

    Crapps is the perfect match correct surname for these filthbag dog abusers.I dare these POS scumbags to make contact with me to enable the required payback to be made.Oh yes!!!!!!

  6. i so hope that these two sick bastards suffer all the rest of their lives with painful sickening illnesses.

  7. Problem is: if these people are PUNISHED because they (apparently) could not afford veterinarian treatment for their dog, then the next people in the same situation will allow their dog to die rather than risk being prosecuted.

    I understand this is a complex and difficult problem…..clearly, they should not have allowed the dog to get into this condition….they could have turned her over to a shelter but she almost definitely would have been killed in that case. WHAT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO??

    • If she was euthanized in a shelter it would at least been quick and merciful not leaving her in the condition she was in there are many things they could have done for her there is no excuse for what they did I hope they burn in hell along with all the other animal abusers

    these inhumane people should be locked up in a cage with OUT food and water for a very long time and ket THEM feel neglect!!!

  10. There is no excuse to be unkind to animals.

  11. april Huckaby says:

    The soul of a man can be reflected in many ways. One is in how he cares for his/her animals.
    These people, to watch an animal suffer, obviously have no soul.
    It is vile and disgusting.
    To the pieces of Crapp, hope maximum penalty is given.

    A dog is one being that will love you more than yourself in this world.

    He deserved better

  12. I hope they both suffer the same pain and distress as the poor dog.

  13. boy are they named well Crapps both should charged and jailed and put in for a very long time and also starve and neglect them while they’re there what kind of so called humans do this to an animal make sure they never have another
