Justice for Dog Allegedly Killed by Groomer

Target: Penny Penn, District Attorney, Forsyth County, Georgia

Goal: Punish groomer who allegedly kicked a dog to death and lied to his owners about it.

A dog groomer has been arrested and charged with cruelty to animals for allegedly killing a dog within her care. Michelle Louise Root, owner of Paw’sh Paws in Gainesville, Georgia was accused by an employee of kicking a customer’s dog to death. The employee stated that she saw Root chasing the dog, named Meko, throughout the premises before choking him with the grooming lead and kicking him repeatedly.

When Meko’s guardian arrived, Root and her husband reportedly lied and said that the unresponsive dog must have had a seizure. The concerned owners transported Meko to a nearby animal hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Necropsy reports revealed extensive bruising and internal injuries, which would have been consistent with the employee’s account of what happened.

A few days later, another employee came forward to corroborate the story. She said that the attack was completely unprovoked and that Meko was so terrified that he “evacuated his bowels.” Both employees said that this was not the first time they had witnessed Root abuse animals within her care.

When a beloved pet is dropped off at a groomer, trainer, or boarder, owners expect it to be take care of. This alleged attack is shocking and should result in the end of this woman’s career as a groomer. Sign the petition below to ask the prosecutor to seek the maximum possible penalty in this case, as well as a lifetime ban on owning or caring for animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mrs. Penn,

Michelle Louise Root, owner of Paw’sh Paws dog grooming shop, has recently been charged with animal cruelty for allegedly kicking a dog to death. Employees at the shop told police that they saw Root chasing the dog, choking him with a grooming lead, and kicking him repeatedly. The dog was pronounced dead soon after the alleged attack. A necropsy revealed injuries consistent with a beating like the employees described.

The employees also claimed that this was not the first time they had witnessed Root abusing animals. Someone with this sort of attitude has no business caring for other people’s pets. In order to save more animals from abuse, we ask you to not only punish her harshly if she is found guilty, but to seek to ban Root from owning or caring for animals.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Jail this bitch or we will deal with her out in the community.
    Destroy this bitch let everyone know who she is and close this business down. Boycott the shop and where she lives.
    What is wrong with the owners do this to my animal and see what I do or have done to you.

  10. Why didn’t the spineless employees stop this attack?? They are just as guilty, thinking of their own jobs before the suffering of the animal!! I would have battered the fuck out of the owner and that poor little dog would be alive now!! The whole lot of them should be prosecuted!
