80 Dogs and Cats Found Sick, Stacked in Crates and Living in Urine Must Not be Returned to Owner

Target: Janet T. Mills, Attorney General of Maine

Goal: Do not allow apparently neglectful woman to regain custody of her dogs.

A Maine woman charged with criminal animal neglect is demanding to have her dogs returned after they were taken into custody. Anita McBride had moved her 80 dogs into her ailing mother’s home, only for the dogs to be found by state officials allegedly living in horrendous conditions, the floors were covered with waste and the animals stacked in crates on top of each other, none of them were properly fed. According to reports only a handful of these animals were disease-free when discovered. McBride’s mother’s cats were reportedly living in similar conditions on the house’s first floor; the cats were also seized.

While McBride claims to love the dogs and that she did not intend to be cruel, she still apparently allowed them to live in abject squalor. Regardless of intention, it is the actions of a pet owner that count, and neglect is still a form of cruelty. It seems McBride did not have the means to care for so many animals in addition to her ailing mother and her mother’s cats, and that she intended to sell puppies without a proper breeding license. McBride was seemingly in over her head, and the animals in her care appear to have suffered for it.

Neglect is a form of cruelty, regardless of the owner’s intentions, and this woman should not be allowed to regain custody of her dogs. Sign this petition to demand the justice system refuse McBride permission to take her dogs back.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Mills,

Anita McBride, a woman charged with criminal animal neglect, is demanding to have her confiscated dogs returned despite apparently lacking the means to properly care for them and the alleged squalor of her living conditions. The dogs taken from her totaled to 80, in addition to the cats owned by her ailing mother; the animals were reportedly found starving and sick, stacked in crates on top of each other, and the floors covered in waste. Additionally, McBride allegedly planned to sell some of the puppies birthed by her dogs despite lacking a license.

Neglect of this magnitude is serious form of cruelty. Despite claiming to love them, McBride apparently still allowed the animals to suffer and must not be given that opportunity again. She seems to be unfit to care for these animals, and you must ensure that she does not regain custody of even a single dog and that the animals are placed in good homes as soon as possible.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Agree all comments and do it to that F**ker.

  2. It would be an injustice and cruelty to give the animals back to this abuser.

  3. Linda Barnett says:

    This despicable abuser must NEVER be permitted to have any of these dogs returned to her. She should be prosecuted and served with a life time ban from ownership of ANY animal and not allowed to have anything to do with any creature. This appalling cruelty is unacceptable and must be severely dealt with.

  4. How can McBride claim to love these animals and at the same time torturing them in a dirty and unpleasant environment, starving them and making them sick? Please do not let this animal abuser and mentally unfit woman regain custody of the animals!

  5. Jacqueline Adams says:

    Is this Justice???? Returning abused dogs back to the abuser??!!!!

  6. People are disgusting. How could people leave their animals like this. This is inexcusable and unacceptable. People can be so heartless and ignorant. Punish these cruel morons and give these animals to good homes where they will have normal, happy lives.

  7. These poor animals should NEVER EVER be returned to the same vicious, cruel people to own them back. Instead BAN THESE PEOPLE EVER OWNING ANY ANIMAL FOR LIFE. ALSO FINE THEM HEFTILY nad make sure to let the animals be adopted by the people who really care for their welfare. I HOPE THE JUDGE IS A COMPASSIONATE SOUL AND WILL DO THE NEEDFUL FOR THE VOICELESS.
