Target: Meagan Maloney, District Attorney for Somerset County, Maine
Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the woman who allegedly bred and sold puppies illegally and abused the neglected adult dogs.
Seven pit bull puppies and four adult dogs were reportedly abused and neglected in the home of an unlicensed breeder. The woman reportedly ran an illegal pet shop from her home and falsified veterinary and vaccination records for the dogs. Demand justice for these innocent dogs.
Maine’s Animal Welfare Department began investigating Nicole Bizier after they received reports of a dog that had been muzzled for a long period of time. When they arrived at the home, they found seven pit bull puppies living in deplorable conditions. Three of the puppies were reportedly found in a litter box in a closet. The other four were reportedly kept in a bathtub with a urine-soaked blanket and a bowl of cat food. The dog that the puppies nursed from was reportedly malnourished.
Bizier has been charged with animal cruelty, tampering with public records or information, and falsifying private records. The dogs were removed from the home and are recovering. Sign below and demand that Bizier receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.
Dear District Attorney Maloney,
Four adult dogs and seven puppies were reportedly found living in deplorable conditions. They reportedly sustained abuse and neglect by their unlicensed breeder. Demand justice for these innocent dogs.
A pit bull suffered severe tissue damage to its mouth after it was reportedly forced to wear a muzzle for a long period of time. The pit bull was one of four dogs allegedly bred in the home of an unlicensed breeder. The puppies reportedly lived in unsanitary conditions and none of the dogs received veterinary care or vaccinations.
This alleged abuse cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
