Allegedly Neglected, Scabies-Infested Dogs Deserve Justice

Target: Randall Houston, District Attorney for Autauga County, Alabama

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the woman who allegedly neglected her dogs until they developed severe mange and scabies.

Six dogs were reportedly neglected and suffered from mange and scabies infestation. The dogs had to be euthanized due to the severity of their illness. Demand justice for these innocent dogs.

“It’s heartbreaking. This is the worst case of neglect I’ve ever seen,” stated Sheriff Joe Sedinger. Deputies arrived at Linda Thomas McDonald’s property to serve an unrelated warrant and found the dogs in a small camper trailer. The dogs had reportedly lost all of their hair and one was covered in scabs and open, running sores.

The dogs were taken to the Prattville-Autauga Humane Shelter for medical treatment. Unfortunately, all six dogs had to be euthanized due to serious illness. McDonald was charged with six misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals and bonded out of jail. Sign below and demand that McDonald receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Houston,

Six dogs suffered and had to be euthanized due to alleged neglect. Per reports, the dogs were infested with scabies and had mange so bad that their hair fell out. We demand justice for these innocent dogs.

“There’s no way she could have not known these dogs were in such bad shape,” Sheriff Joe Sedinger stated in reference to McDonald. Five of the dogs were reportedly so full of mange that deputies could not tell their breed. Veterinarians tried to save the sixth dog, but his scabies infestation was too severe. The dogs reportedly suffered horribly before they were humanely put to sleep.

No animal should have to suffer due to neglect. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
