Justice for Dog Allegedly Starved and Denied Medical Care

Target: Bruce Colton, State’s Attorney for St. Lucie County, Florida

Goal: Demand that the person who allegedly starved a dog named Nikki and denied her medical care, leading to the amputation of her leg, face the maximum penalty if found guilty.

A dog was allegedly denied medical care and starved nearly to death. She was reportedly covered in sores and missing a paw. Demand that justice is served for this innocent dog.

“It was obviously just a house of horrors knowing that she wasn’t provided food, water, basic necessities that she needed,” stated David Lynch, the spokesman for the Humane Society of St. Lucie County. Per veterinarians, the pit mix was starved to the point where she only weighed 20 pounds and had no body fat. Her leg will have to be amputated because one of her paws was reportedly only a stub, which made it difficult for her to walk.

The dog was taken to the Humane Society of St. Lucie and given medical care. Genita Hedgepeth, the dog’s owner, was charged with animal cruelty. Sign below and demand that Hedgepeth receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear State’s Attorney Colton,

A dog was reportedly starved and neglected nearly to the point of death. The dog was reportedly so emaciated that her ribs showed through her skin and sores covered most of her body. We demand that justice is served for this innocent dog.

“Every day must have been a complete struggle for her just to survive,” stated Lynch. Per reports, the dog’s back paw was only a stub and infected. Veterinarians aren’t sure how her paw got to be that way or how long she had to suffer with the painful deformity.

This horrific abuse cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case, if the owner is found guilty of this tragic abuse.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. Kathryn Irby says:

    MAXIMUM PENALTY FOR the TRASH, WHO SEVERELY NEGLECTED THIS INNOCENT, LOVING DOG, ULTIMATELY LEADING TO THE AMPUTATION OF ITS LEG–NOW!!! THIS BASE SCUM NEEDS TO HAVE TO DIE THE SLOWEST, MOST AGONIZING DEATH THAT ANY “PERSON” EVER POSSIBLY COULD!!!

  3. Bet the scum didn’t miss a meal.

  4. This poor dog, I bet the dog would have even givin it’s life to protect her after all the suffering she caused this poor dog. What trusting gorgeous creatures and then people like this abuse them. I hope she suffers 10 fold for what has happened to this dog. And all others who do the same!

  5. Activists in this region – demand improved Animal Rights Laws! Regardless how difficult, never ease off!

    Abusers are low-lives and should never be allowed to own another animal.

  6. Starved these bastards

  7. Paula Eggleston says:

    Please punish this woman to the fullest extent of the law…and make sure she can never own an animal again. This poor dog must have suffered beyond belief all the while being held captive. She would at least have had a chance to eat if they had turned her out on the street…or taken her to a shelter. This is the case that animal abuse laws were made for…please enforce it and make an example of this woman, so it may act as a deterrent to others who want to torture animals.

  8. Beth Marie says:

    Attorney Colton, this is felony animal cruelty. The People are wanting justice! Please do what you are paid for. People are sick of attorneys and judges NOT doing their jobs!

  9. HOPE THIS WOMAN WILL GET THE APPROPRIATE PUNISHMENT FOR THIS

  10. Karen Roose says:

    This evil bitch needs to be starved and left to die. Our animal cruelty laws are not enough to stop the cruelty. The laws should have a heavy fine and a very long time in jail. Why is it that lawmakers do not care to change the law? This must be changed as there are so many animals that are abused and killed. We need to elect people who will see that animal abuse must be stopped by hurting the offenders with time in jail and a fine.
