Dog Allegedly Starved and Forced to Live with Painful Skin Condition Deserves Justice

Target: Joseph I. Cassilly, State’s Attorney for Hartford County, Connecticut

Goal: Demand that the people who allegedly starved their dog and neglected to treat his painful skin condition receive the maximum penalty by law.

A dog was allegedly starved and denied vital veterinary care in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The dog suffered from a severe skin condition, which his owners reportedly neglected to treat. Demand justice for this poor dog.

When a concerned citizen found a Shar-Pei mix wandering down a New Britain street, they immediately rushed the frail dog to a veterinarian and called the police. Per the veterinarian, the dog suffered from mange, a painful skin condition, and was so emaciated that he only had days to live. New Britain police identified the dog’s owners, Emily Vazquez and Emmanuel Vazquez, and questioned them about the dog’s deteriorating condition. Emily Vazquez reportedly gave contradictory answers to the same questions and, per police, she’d been treating the dog’s mange with baths instead of taking him to a veterinarian.

The dog was hospitalized for 17 days and made a full recovery. Emily Vazquez and Emmanuel Vazquez were each arrested and charged with animal cruelty. Sign below and demand that Emily Vazquez and Emmanuel Vazquez receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear State’s Attorney Cassilly,

A dog was allegedly starved almost to the point of death in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The dog was reportedly so emaciated that his ribs and hip bones showed through his skin. We demand justice for this poor dog.

New Britain police charged Emily Vazquez and Emmanuel Vazquez with animal cruelty after they allegedly starved and neglected their dog nearly to the point of death. Per police, the Shar-Pei mix was so emaciated that his organs would have shut down within days, and he suffered from mange, a painful skin condition caused by mites. The Vazquez’s neglected to bring the dog to a veterinarian for treatment and claimed that he just stopped eating, per police. The dog had to be hospitalized for 17 days, but miraculously made a full recovery. Emily Vazquez and Emmanuel Vazquez were both arrested.

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

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
