Punish Woman Accused of Neglecting 21 Dogs and Trying to Run Over Animal Control Officer

Target: Joseph Stanzione, District Attorney for Greene County, New York

Goal: Punish woman accused of endangering 21 dogs, police officers, an animal control officer, and the general public.

A woman is facing animal cruelty charges after allegedly neglecting over 20 dogs, two of which were found to be emaciated by Greene County Animal Control. These two were apparently found locked in a pen without water. A dozen more animals were reportedly found chained up outside, only a few with access to water and shelter. Five smaller dogs were also found in the house. The rescue of so many animals has resulted in an overcrowding situation at the animal control facility. One of the dogs required urgent veterinary care.

The woman, 52-year-old Lisa Jo Crawford, is also facing several charges in relation to her alleged resist of arrest. According to police, she backed her vehicle into an animal control truck, endangering the officer inside. This resulted in a chase, where Crawford was reportedly seen “swerving back and forth in her lane and slamming her brakes, trying to cause the deputy behind her to crash into her.” Crawford was suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and opiates at the time of the chase.

This apparent behavior not only endangered animals, but police and an animal welfare officer as well as countless innocent drivers on the roads. In order to ensure that justice is brought to the victims, it’s important that she is punished harshly, if found guilty. Sign below to ask the prosecutor to seek the maximum possible penalty in this case.


Dear Mr. Stanzione,

A woman is facing charges of animal cruelty, driving under the influence, evading arrest, resisting arrest, aggravated assault on an animal control officer and reckless driving after allegedly resisting arrest for neglecting 21 animals. Two dogs were reportedly found on her property were emaciated, and a dozen more were chained outside without access to water or shelter. One of the animals required urgent veterinary care.

The woman, 52-year-old Lisa Jo Crawford, allegedly attempted to back into an animal control officer who was rescuing the dogs on her property, resulting in a chase that endangered the general public. This woman’s apparent lack of regard for the well-being of others must be punished harshly. We, the undersigned, ask you to seek the maximum possible penalty against her, if she is found guilty.

    Severely Punish woman who neglected 21 dogs, and then tried to run over Animal Control Officer!!!! UNACCEPTABLE!!!

  2. Usually I’m enraged because the criminals who abuse animals aren’t punished enough. But, since there was a severe threat to a human, hopefully this will not be the case.

  3. It says she hit the truck with the officer inside. Not even clise to trying to run her over. She’d have to be outside the truck. Stop exaggerating to make your story sound worse. As if the facts if the dogs plight isn’t bad enough. Tell us mire about the dogs instead, they are the main issue, not the officers sitting in trucks.

  4. Why any one need to keep so many animals in a location, where there aren’t enough funds to support these animals. It is better to get help from the organizations whom are ready to give a helping hand to rescue and take care of the animals welfare. If this woman is truly LOVE these dogs then she should not be acting violently and going against the helpers. Let the animals be gone to a shelter where they can be well taken care of. Some people who keep hording animals such as this, perhaps mentally they are not in good status I guess…Hopefully the Animals will have a healthy environment to live in peace…

    Little wonder the animals were suffering if her money and priority were alcohol and drugs!
    Glad the animals wee taken and veterinary care for those that needed it. Such a sad state of affairs when people sink this low in themselves and forget those needing care around them.
    I hope the over crowding can be sorted with kindhearted people stepping up to foster or adopt some of these needy dogs at these shelters.

  10. Dear Mr. Joseph Stanzione, District Attorney for Greene County, New York

    You must Lisa Jo Crawford she’s accused of endangering 21 dogs, police officers, an animal control officer, and the general public.
    Ms Crawford must be shown the the full extent of the New York law. It’s high time animal a users were no longer let off with only a slap on the wrist. Be sure to include counseling for obvious mental issues and forced alcoholics anonymous meetings again obviously needed.
    And this women should never be allowed to own another animsl.
    Sincerely, D. Page
    Love and Peace to all the innocent animals of the world.

  11. Who or whom ever posted this petition—It does have some misinformation.
    Read the Real Story. It did NOT happen in NY!!
    Greene County (Greeneville) TN is where this happened!!

    She needs to be charged with 1 count of Abuse/neglect for every dog on that property!! NO lumping all the dogs together and only have “1” count of Abuse/Neglect. Abuse/Neglect of Animal MUST stop.

  12. Jail her for the rest of her useless life. Let her work for her own stay! Animals are for many an easy meal-ticket! Breeders must be much stricter controlled by governments! Animals shelters are over running with unwanted dogs.

  13. Helen Tanguis says:

    She’ll plead INSANITY.

  14. Lock this sadistic vile cunt away permanently . He needs fucking torturing in jail .
    I have to say it: “has 1 animal life for me worth more – than 1 million people.”
    because who atrocities much and mass murders are in order or makes himself, his life is not worth it.
    of great atrocity, Noxious

  15. Lock her up without food and water and let her suffer the same pain and distress as the poor dogs.

    New York prosecutors and judges start doing your jobs! People demand justice, NOT WARNINGS!
