180+ Cats Allegedly Hoarded and Denied Medical Care Deserve Justice

Target: Hon. Brian E. Lewis, Sheriff, Kent County, DE

Goal: Protect the lives of cats, dogs, and other household pets by providing counseling to woman who hoarded over 180 animals.

Over 184 cats and one dog were seized from “deplorable” conditions in a Delaware home after they were allegedly hoarded and denied basic medical attention. The woman allegedly responsible for this cruelty must not only face her animal cruelty charges but should be given mandated counseling to ensure that no future animals are subjected to such harm.

Linda Favre, the homeowner, was arrested and charged on 19 counts, including animal cruelty, after the animals were discovered. Three cats were dead or have since died, reportedly due to their mistreatment. Authorities say the animals were suffering from malnourishment, fleas, and infection.

Favre must be held accountable for her alleged crimes, but she also must face mental health counseling and support to address her hoarding issues. Punishing her for her crimes may not stop them from occurring again, but addressing the motives behind her crimes may spare other animals from similar fates. Sign the petition to demand that the animals get the justice they deserve and Favre gets the counseling she needs.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Sheriff Lewis,

Over 180 animals were seized from a home in your county, from what authorities have described as “deplorable” conditions. This is the largest case of animal hoarding in your state. Linda Favre, the woman accused of this cruelty, must be held accountable.

One way to ensure this tragic event does not happen again is by mandating Favre to counseling. She needs help to stop her proclivity for hoarding. I ask that you not only hold Favre responsible but also ensure she gets the help she needs. That is the only way to find justice for these mistreated animals.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This is still extremely cruel. Did she keep these poor animals in those small cages? Were they trapped and totting in those small cages. I don’t buy that this woman could not possibly know she was being cruel. I don’t. This is just vicious cruelty and I hope she gets locked up in a tiny filthy cage herself.

  2. Animal hoarding may be a mental illness but it should never be an excuse for the horrid abuse and neglect more than 180 animals suffered at her hands, and for that she must be held responsible and punished accordingly. Linda Favre must also be prohibited from having contact with any animals in the future. By all means require psychological counseling as part of her sentence, but not instead of. 

  3. ANIMAL ABUSE, TORTURE AND DEATH MUST BE MET WITH SEVERE PUNISHMENT THAT IS ENFORCED. THAT IS THE ONLY WAY THIS WILL STOP. MAKE IT A FELONY WITH LONG MANDATORY JAIL TIME AND LARGE FINES AND IT WILL STOP. ALSO BAN THEM FROM EVER HAVING OR BEING AROUND ANIMALS.

    Dear Sheriff Lewis:
    That crazy old bitch is not qualified to have a single animal – you should forbid her to even go near one, under penalty of imprisonment
