Sick Elderly Dog Thrown Out in Trash Deserves Justice

Target: Andrew S. Robinson, District Attorney for Androscoggin County, Maine

Goal: Find and prosecute the person who neglected a seriously ill dog and threw him out with the trash.

A neglected senior dog was discarded with the trash. The dog had a severe case of dental disease and was left to die in crippling pain. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

“The smell was unbearable, we employees could hardly stomach the smell, I can’t imagine what this little dog was going through,” stated Zachary Black of the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society. Motto, a Chihuahua, had a rotting odor and was foaming at the mouth. His mouth was one big ulcer and his teeth were in poor condition.

The Lewiston Police Department is investigating, but has not identified a suspect yet. Please sign below to demand that government officials dedicate more resources to finding and prosecuting this dog’s abuser.


Dear District Attorney Robinson,

A senior dog suffered tremendously after he was thrown into the trash with horrible untreated wounds. The Chihuahua had an ulcer so large that it encompassed his entire mouth. We demand justice for this innocent dog.

“This was the worst case of dental neglect I have ever seen,” stated Dr. Stephen Kinney, a local veterinarian. All of Motto’s teeth had to be removed. He will require multiple mouth cleanings a day and will be on a special diet until he heals. Kinney expects him to recover, despite his advanced age and initial condition.

This poor dog was left to die in debilitating pain. No animal should be treated this way. We demand that you dedicate more resources to finding and prosecuting this dog’s abuser.

    Another horrible, senseless, unspeakable abuse to an innocent animal. Happens far too many times, and the fight to stop it, and bring justice for those animals who suffer abuse, never ends. Yves Alexis cannot go and point blame at animal lovers, and say, hey you do something about this rampant feral situation. Someone has to love and protect the animals. I certainly put them first and foremost as do many people. The blame should be put on those humans that discard these precious animals, who in turn, are trying to survive b/c they are hungry! Yes, those who are discarded probably do become a bit wild to survive. One solution is to humanely euthanize these animals vs. throwing them out into the world to fend for themselves, which many are incapable of doing, or give them to a no-kill shelter! I attribute the problem to irresponsible humans, not the animals. It’s very very sad for vulnerable, helpless animals who have no voice.

    As for the abuser of this precious, elder Chihuahua, I have zero mercy! Give him/her a taste of their own medicine!!!! They can rot in hell!

    Lastly, as for the livestock who are injured and die, I have definite mercy on them and their owner’s. I empathize with your situation, but there is no easy answer. Again, we are dealing with very irresponsible, cruel humans, and that’s an on-going fight around the world, not just locally! Heartbreaking to say the least!
