Justice for Puppy Allegedly Strangled and Dragged Down a Driveway

Target: Mark Roe, Prosecuting Attorney of Everett, Washington

Goal: Seek the maximum possible penalty for man accused of dragging a puppy down his driveway.

A 10-month-old pit bull puppy was reportedly dragged down a driveway. The poor puppy, who has now been given the name Chance, sustained terrible injuries, including multiple fractures and bruises as well as fluid in his lungs. The veterinarian who treated the dog said that Chance was coughing up blood and that there was evidence that he had also been strangled.

Twenty-two-year-old Matt Hurd was arrested and charged with animal cruelty after his neighbor called authorities when she reportedly heard a dog being beaten inside his residence. Another neighbor reported seeing the man hitting the poor puppy with a stick a few nights before. Unfortunately, it’s very common to see people get away with animal cruelty and hardly face any punishment. That is why it is imperative that we put pressure on authorities. Please add your signature to the petition below to demand justice for this innocent puppy.


Dear Mr. Roe,

A pit bull puppy reportedly sustained severe injuries, including multiple fractures and fluid in his lungs, after allegedly being dragged down a driveway. There was also evidence that he had been strangled, according to the veterinarian who treated the dog.

This is an extremely violent act of animal cruelty, and this poor puppy deserves justice. We, the undersigned, demand that the accused man receive the maximum penalty the law will allow, if convicted.
