Catch and Punish Killer of Family Dog and Feral Cat

Target: R.J. Larizza, District Attorney for Volusia County, Florida

Goal: Demand that the person who fatally poisoned a dog with antifreeze and killed a cat receive the maximum penalty by law.

A family dog and a feral cat were violently killed in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The dog was poisoned with antifreeze, causing her immense suffering, and the cat was found dead under suspicious circumstances. Demand justice for these innocent animals.

“My son called the dog his sister; she was like his baby sister. He watched her suffer and he watched her die,” stated Summer Kocchi, the owner of Vegas the dog. Vegas became ill after drinking antifreeze that was found in plastic containers around Kocchi’s apartment building. Veterinary reports confirmed that Vegas died of antifreeze poisoning. Detectives with the Port Orange Police Department also discovered the body of a feral cat that died under suspicious circumstances, and several more raccoon and cat carcasses have been found around the property.

The Port Orange police have opened an animal cruelty case at the apartment complex but have not yet identified any suspects. Sign below and demand that the person responsible for this cruelty be charged and receive the maximum penalty by law.


Dear District Attorney Larizza,

A beloved family dog suffered and died after she drank antifreeze left in plastic containers around her apartment. A feral cat also died under suspicious circumstances in the same apartment complex. We demand justice for these innocent animals.

Summer Kocchi and her young son were heartbroken when their dog, Vegas, became violently ill. A visit to a veterinarian confirmed that Vegas had consumed antifreeze found in plastic containers surrounding Kocchi’s apartment building. Vegas died horrifically from the effects of the poison, and she was not the only victim. Detectives also discovered the body of a feral cat hidden in the bushes surrounding the same apartment complex, and the residents have found several dead raccoons and cats on the property.

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

    Only a Sub-Human Monster could do thing horrible thing! Find them and dump some Anti-freeze down their throat, and watch them slowly die! What comes around goes around, and sooner or later they will get what is coming to them – BAD KARMA! I truely hope it is ASAP!

  3. Jeannette Allan says:

    Karma will catch up with these depraved, evil wretches, in the meantime the law must change to treat those examples of human garbage as felons.

  4. People…please keep your pets safe…keep them in your home at night & don’t let them roam free during the day. The SOBs who did this horror MUST BE CAUGHT, harshly punished & heavily fined.
