Justice for Dying Dog Abandoned in the Rain

Target: Brad Nichols, Animal Cruelty Investigator, Calgary Humane Society

Goal: Find and punish person responsible for abandoning a dying dog in the middle of the night.

A severely ill dog was abandoned in front of a Humane Society and was forced to spend the night in the rain with no shelter. The dog, an elderly Shih Tzu, required medical care and extensive tests. He was found to be suffering from end-stage renal failure and a large open sore on his rear end. The dog’s hair was matted to such a point that staff suspect that he had been neglected for months, if not years. Unfortunately, the dog was euthanized due to the poor state it was in.

In the window of the Humane Society, there is a sign warning that abandonment of animals is a criminal offense. This dog was abandoned nevertheless, in a move that has been called “callous” and “brazen” by Brad Nichols, senior manager of animal cruelty investigations. He added that surrendering the animal during business hours or taking it to a 24-hour animal clinic would have both been more humane and legal.

Investigators are currently searching for the person responsible, though the quality of video captured from inside the building is too poor to reveal a face. They are asking anyone who recognizes the dog or the owner to come forward with any information they may have.

This poor dog should have been surrendered a long time ago, long before painful mats developed and health problems progressed to such an extent. This ongoing neglect allowed an innocent animal to suffer for far too long, and the abandonment was a final act of cruelty. Sign the petition below to demand that this person is found and charged to the fullest extent of the law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Nichols,

A dying dog was recently left in the rain overnight after it was cruelly abandoned in front of the Humane Society. Examinations on the dog revealed that he suffered from end-stage renal failure and a large open wound. His fur was also matted to a degree that suggests long-term neglect.

In order to ensure justice, the person responsible must be found and punished. We, the undersigned, ask you to dedicate extra resources to this case to find and charge the person responsible for this crime.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. I hope AND YES, PRAY that this subhuman piece of revilement ends up being too ill to fend for him/herself and nobody lends a hand, but instead dumps the filthy carcass in the street to suffer before he/she succumbs!!
