Justice for 115 Dogs Reportedly Kept for Dog Fighting

Target: Jack Browning, District Attorney of Polk, County, Georgia

Goal: Seek the maximum possible sentence for couple who allegedly kept 115 dogs for dog fighting purposes.

Over 100 dogs were found in a home where police say they were being kept for the purposes of dog fighting. Investigators searched the home a second time, only to find even more dogs. The owners, 32-year-old, Devecio Rowland, and 34-year-old, Candice Sorrells face animal cruelty charges.

A mother and seven puppies were taken in by animal control. Polk County Animal Control Director, Jeff Crawford said the department is trying to find rescue groups to take some of the dogs. Rowland reportedly refused to sign over the dogs. An emergency hearing to determine the fate of the 35 dogs is coming up.  Please add your signature to the petition below to demand that these innocent dogs get the justice they deserve.

People who are involved in the cruel practice of dog fighting receive monetary gains from their cruelty, and therefore, they’re extremely likely to become repeat offenders. That is why it’s imperative that the punishment for these animal abusers is severe enough to prevent them from fighting dogs. Please add your signature to the petition below to demand that this couple be punished to the maximum extent possible.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Browning,

A couple was arrested after 100 dogs were found in their home. The dogs were being kept for the purpose of dog fighting, said investigators. After the investigators returned to the home a second time, they found even more dogs, including a mother with seven puppies.

The owners are refusing to sign over the dogs, and an emergency hearing is scheduled to determine their fate. We, the undersigned, demand that this couple be banned permanently from owning animals and given the maximum penalty possible if guilty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
