Four Dogs Allegedly Starved and Neglected Deserve Justice

Target: John F. DeRosier, District Attorney for Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana

 Goal: Demand that the man and woman who allegedly starved and neglected four dogs receive the maximum penalty under law.

Four dogs were allegedly starved and neglected in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The dogs were reportedly so emaciated that their bones showed through their skin.

When Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s officers arrived at Anita L. Montoya and James V. Chauvin’s home, they reportedly found four dogs in very poor health. The dogs were reportedly extremely emaciated and had no access to food or water. The welfare check was a follow-up to a previous visit during which Animal Service officers reportedly instructed Montoya to seek immediate veterinary care for the dogs.

All four dogs are currently in the custody of Calcasieu Parish Animal Services and are being treated by a veterinarian. Montoya and Chauvin were charged with animal cruelty and were released on a misdemeanor summons. Sign below and demand that Montoya and Chauvin receive the maximum penalty under law, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney DeRosier,

Four dogs reportedly suffered in Calcasieu Parish when they were allegedly starved and denied life-saving veterinary care. The dogs were reportedly emaciated and had no access to food or water. We demand justice for these poor dogs.

Per Animal Services, Montoya and Chauvin were extremely uncooperative when asked to seek veterinary care for their four dogs. The dogs were reportedly found to be dangerously emaciated, and Animal Services was unable to locate any dog food in the home. Montoya and Chauvin reportedly continued to allow their dogs to suffer despite warnings from Animal Services.

This horrific cruelty cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

    A EYE, for a EYE!
    Give these pieces of shit THE MAX & give them the SAME treatment that THEY gave these poor innocent dogs!
    LET THEM STARVE & SUFFER to the point of which THEY allowed these poor innocent helpless dogs too.
    THEY both completely IGNORED animal controls previous warnings so now it’s time to MAKE them have to ACCEPT it.
    BAN them from EVER owning a innocent, helpless animal EVER again and GIVE them BOTH the MAX!

  3. The two fuckers need nothing less than to be starved, but to death for them!! They’re probably fat ugly slobs anyway. It’ll probably take a long time to starve them, and I’ll be glad to check on them once in awhile as I laugh at their misery while chomping down on some delicious food. Why it took so long to check on these animals again, I have no idea! That needs fixing, too!!

      What a great quote. I believe in justice not revenge and The Golden Rule. That, to me, is the way of civilization.

    The punishment should fit the crime for these monsters ?? who are a waste of space and oxygen‼️

    Isn’t it time Louisiana starts prosecution of animal abuse? People do it because southern states ALLOW abuse without meaningful prosecution. Glad I don’t live amongst these animal abusers.
