Punish Sanctuary Owner Accused of Neglecting Dogs Until They Died

Target: Scott A. Coffina, Prosecuting Attorney for Burlington County, New Jersey

Goal: Seek justice for two dogs who reportedly died while in the custody of an animal rescue.

The owner of an animal rescue is facing animal cruelty charges after two dogs in her care reportedly died of neglect. Laura Pople, 55, executive director of Seer Farms, has been accused of failing to provide proper shelter and housing a dog in inhumane conditions. Pople denies the allegations, saying that it’s “truly unfortunate that these dogs passed away, but their deaths were not caused by Seer Farms.”

According to pet owner Carl Shepard, he brought two dogs to the facility after his home was damaged in a fire. Shepard planned on picking up the dogs after he found a new home, but when he returned, his animals were reportedly dead despite being in good health when he dropped them off.

Reports say that one dog, a Cocker Spaniel named Rocky, died from cardio-respiratory failure, a result of blood clots likely caused by bacterial pneumonia. Officials could not find a conclusive cause of death for the second dog, Fluffy.

A person who is capable of allegedly neglecting dogs until they died should not be in charge of an animal rescue. In order to ensure that no more dogs are harmed, it’s important that the accused is punished properly, if found guilty. Sign the petition below to ask the prosecutor to ensure that Pople is punished for any neglect she may have committed.


Dear Mr. Coffina,

The owner of an animal rescue is facing charges after allegedly neglecting a man’s dogs to the point that they died. Laura Pople has been accused of failing to provide proper shelter and housing a dog in inhumane conditions. According to pet owner Carl Shepard, the two dogs were dropped off at the facility to be held while he looked for a new home after a fire. After he had got settled and returned for the dogs, they were dead. One reportedly died due to blood clots likely caused by bacterial pneumonia, while the cause of death for the other dog came back as inconclusive.

In order to ensure that she does not harm any more animals, Pople must be properly punished, if she is found guilty. We, the undersigned, ask you to seek a harsh but fair punishment against anyone found responsible for the deaths of these innocent dogs.

  1. A sanctuary is supposed to be a safe haven for animals! To protect and take care of them, not to abuse and neglect them! Maximum penalty! No excuses! No exceptions!

  2. Laura Pople was suppose to be running a sanctuary where animals can feel safe, protected and properly taken care of. Instead she neglected and abused them. Charges of felonies, prison time – Maximum penalty! No excuses! She should also never be allowed to be near, buy or own any animals ever! Your State needs an Animal Abuse Registry now!

      She shouldnt be allowed to continue breathing. And every living relative from 1 month to. 90yrs old should be sterilized. This shit should end the bitch’s genetic line. She shouldnt even be allowed to be near children or old ppl ever again. As in never see her grandkids or walk by a school ever again. Ideally this bitch should be shot.

  3. tina robertson says:

    Beat that bitch til shes dead. Hunt her down. Improve the world.

  4. tina robertson says:

    That poor man who came back for his dogs has been thru too much. Someone please get rid of the bitch who let his dogs die. They escaped a fire to be killed by Laura Pople ? Chop that cunt into a thousand pieces.. And toss her into the Hudson.

  5. Some sanctuary! A woman too. I’m sure you can find a nice sanctuary in your strictest prison and leave the bitch there for good. No problem,you won’t have to feed her or anything, keep to the way she operates.

  6. That’s no sanctuary but a hell. This person should suffer is own actions.

  7. She needs to be prosecuted to the max – big fine, imprisonment and any remaining animals in her so called sanctuary turned over to other legitimate rescue groups. She should never be permitted to again have any animals at all. Used to think Seers Farm was a good organization – not so now – the word needs to go out!

  8. Another useless, poor excuse of a person pretending to love animals. 20 years of jail & hard labor should be an automatic sentence for these types!

    Son of a bitch❗️?
    Signed & shared ?

  10. Low-life piece of trash! I can’t even imagine how the owner felt! I hope she rots!
