Thirteen Dogs Allegedly Living in Filth and Covered in Mats Deserve Justice

Target: Trecia Kimes-Brown, Prosecuting Attorney for Vinton County, Ohio

 Goal: Demand that the man who allegedly kept thirteen dogs in unsanitary conditions receives the maximum penalty by law.

Thirteen dogs were allegedly neglected and kept in unsanitary conditions. The dogs reportedly lived amongst feces, urine, and dirty clothing. The suspect stated that he was going through a challenging time and that his family members had not cleaned his home for him while he was at work. Demand justice for these innocent dogs.

“You would have to see this dog prior to the grooming to believe it was the same dog,” stated Gallia Dog Warden Laurie Cardillo. Cardillo took thirteen cocker spaniels into her custody after they were allegedly abandoned in a home filled with feces, urine, and dirty clothing. One of the dogs was reportedly so matted that he was tripping over his own fur mats. Sander’s home smelled of ammonia, police stated, and the only food available to the dogs was dumped throughout the feces and urine-covered floor.

The dogs have been examined and are receiving medical care. Two of the dogs may have to be euthanized due to the severity of their illness. Police charged Sanders with 13 counts of second-degree misdemeanor animal cruelty. Sign below and demand that Sander’s receives the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Kimes-Brown,

Thirteen dogs suffered and two may have to be euthanized after they were allegedly neglected and kept in unsanitary conditions. The dogs reportedly lived in their own feces and urine and some suffered with severe fur mats. We demand justice for these innocent dogs.

The Gallia Sheriff’s Office charged Thomas Saunders with 13 counts of second-degree misdemeanor animal cruelty after he allegedly neglected his dogs and forced them to live in unsanitary conditions. Per police, one of the dogs had fur mats so severe that he was unable to walk and many of the dogs were in poor health. The home smelled heavily of ammonia, reports stated, and the only food available to the dogs was scattered across the urine and feces-covered floor. The dogs are receiving medical care, but two may have to be euthanized.

This horrific cruelty must be punished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Put him in a cage with his own urine and feces, them throw him some kibble! Two dogs may die! This horrific neglect must not be tolerated!

  2. Most likely this idiot was breeding these dogs. Please stop the senseless breeding, idiots like this cruel criminal do not ever need to be a guardian to a living creature. Stop giving freaks like this moron a living creature. Stop killing and abandoning pets. Millions killed each in shelters, millions of strays abandoned neglected tortured abused!, please stop the domestic pet trade! Keep morons like this criminal away from living creatures.
