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.

PETITION LETTER:

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.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I just can’t fathom why people who can’t or don’t want to pay vet fees for their animal for whatever reason, do not just bring them to a shelter and surrender them?
    What a heinous amount of suffering this tiny animals has suffered and then just abandon him to the rubbish ?
    Shocked to pieces over this …. Just can not comprehend this type of abased behaviour!!!
    God bless those who rescued Motto and the vets trying to help this little senior citizen Dog through this trauma. I sincerely hope the owner/s are found.

    Anyone in the comunity who knew what was happening to this poor little mite is equallly responsible in my eyes. To turn away and pretend you didn’t see is identifying with the abuser. The same with all cruelty and abuse, don’t eat meat unless you know it has been cared for properly in death as well as in life. NOT MEAT UNTIL IT IS DEAD. ALL ANIMAL LIVES MATTER to coin a phrase.

  3. Anne Stph says:

    Whatever excuse for a human being did this to a sweet pet, they should be put in jail for the criminally insane!

    • Hope they are found and given long jail sentence,how could anyone cause so much suffering to a defencless elderly dog,i just cannot imagine the pain he must have endured,surley other people must have seen this dog why would they ignore it??thank god he was found & will recover please let him go to a loving home to spend the rest of his life being loved

  4. Ruth Tranquillo says:

    This, so called human, needs to be punished!! Also, nuts like this usually hurt people, sooner or later!!!

  5. VERI PEZZI DI MERDA … altro che “umani”!!!

  6. Dendy Shepard says:

    Human being my ass !!!!

  7. Whoever perpetrated this heinous act of unmitigated act o cruelty against this precious innocent little dog, does not possess anything that would qualify them to be anything but span of the devil.

  8. Gene Sengstake says:

    The Lewiston Police Department may be investigating – but they are not going to “waste” too much of their valuable time trying to find and then prosecute this dog’s abuser. What would they actually do if they caught him anyway? Slap his wrist and a $10 fine? Personally I think he ought to be thrown in prison for a couple of years. What he really deserves is to be taken out and inhumanely executed. The world has too much “garbage” walking around in it already – and it’s not getting better – – –

    • Totally agree

    • Terri Marcovecchio says:

      I agree with you 100%! I’m sick of how animal cruelty is given such low priority by the law. But what can you expect when every day we read about cops shooting family pets because they felt “threatened” by the dog. I’d like to see the guy who abused Motto put in a ring with those extreme fighters and let them unload on him for a few days.

  9. To let an animal no matter what age suffer like this is truly disgracefull and this person must be found and severly punished. They must never be allowed to have any animals ever again.

  10. hell awaits the abuser of the great dog now.

  11. HOW WOULD THIS MONSTER LIKE IT IF SOMEONE THREW HIM OUT IN THE TRASH JUST FOR BEING PHYSICALLY UGLY? ROTTEN PIECE OF SHIT!

  12. Lilian Caughlin says:

    It’s possible the little guy was owned by a person who died or went into a nursing home. Somebody elderly themselves unable (mentally or physically) to take care of an animal. The surviving family are the ones to look at. I have my own idea of what should happen to whoever did this. Imagine the worst. The public should bombard lawmakers with petitions to punish animal abusers to the fullest. 5 years minimum and then go up from there. I’d rather see a druggie out on the street than an animal abuser.

  13. I’m especially horrified this happened in my state. There is NO EXCUSE for the scum who did this.

  14. This innocent tiny dog suffered in agony for months before being thrown out. The owners do not deserve any mercy as they have not shown any to this dog.

  15. Terri Marcovecchio says:

    Unfortunately, this incident is just a small fragment of the endless animal cruelty going on in the world, and it seems there is never fitting punishment for the abusers. A man in California locked a Chihuahua puppy in a crate and set it on fire, leaving the puppy to burn alive. He did this because the puppy pooped inside the house. His punishment? A mere three-year jail sentence – which will probably get reduced for “good behavior” or some other nonsense. I don’t think anything will truly change unless these sick abusers are eradicated from the planet. They deserve no mercy, because they surely have not one ounce of humanity. I wish someone would start a vigilante group for animals and start wasting these low-life scumbags. Until then I will continue to sign petitions and such to at least put a voice out there to let our law-makers know those of us who love animals are fed up! I surely hope there will be some justice for Motto; that he survives and is adopted into a loving home.

  16. What a beautiful dog — his next home must be loving & caring — NOW, for the idiots who committed this crime — We must ensure that animal abusers & killers stay away from animals & NEVER adopt again — these monsters’ depraved negligence not taking into consideration the torturous suffering inflicted on this dog is telling of unconscionable, irrational, insane, depraved & merciless humans — CRIMES AGAINST ANIMALS MUST BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY — PUNISHMENTS & PENALTIES MUST BE SEVERE!!

    I hope the son of a bitch rots in hell for this❗️😠
    Signed & Shared😡

  18. The action should be opposite. They need tender loving care even more, when they get older. Just like us. God will not forgive this cruelt 2 leggens.

  19. How can someone be so cruel to their pet that they supposedly love.
    Breaks my heart to read of such needless cruelty.

  20. FOR ALL OF THESE INSANE AND INHUMANE BREED SOMEONE FORGOT MAIN THINGS IN HUMANES EDUCATION.
    WHO IS IT?

    ALL OF THAT  BARBARIC  MUD AND RESPONSIBLE  NONPERSONS  ARE ONLY SENSELESS FOR ALL OTHER TERRESTRIALS – RECYCLE THEM  TO ALLIGATORS – THE SINGLE MEANING OF THESE SCUM!

    Stop & pursue this criminal rabble and this deformity  –  instantly!
