Justice for 20+ Cats, Dogs, and Squirrels Found in Alleged “House of Horrors”

Cats in cage - Christopher Gross

Target: Anna Schildroth, Chair, New Haven Humane Commission, CT

Goal: Protect innocent animals from cruelty and neglect by requiring that alleged animal hoarder obtain mental care.

Over 20 cats, dogs, and even squirrels were reportedly found neglected in a Connecticut home that has since been condemned. The woman allegedly responsible, Donna Scirocco, has been charged with six counts of animal cruelty. These animals deserve justice for their reported suffering in what the press is now calling a “House of Horrors.”

Authorities visited Scirocco’s house after neighbors reported a foul odor and an abundance of rats. Police reportedly found two dozen cats, dogs, squirrels, and even an owl. According to police, they also found two dead cats and a dead woodchuck on the property. Several of the animals had to be euthanized after they were rescued. The rest await their forever homes at local shelters.

Scirocco has been charged with animal cruelty, but it is clear that this case requires more than a slap on the wrist or time behind bars. Scirocco may require mental care to ensure that no other animal is subjected to such neglect. Sign the petition to ask that the New Haven Humane Commission recommend that Scirocco obtain mental care, if found guilty, so that no other animals have to suffer.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Commissioner Schildroth,

A so-called “House of Horrors” was discovered in your district. In the home of Donna Scirocco, two dozen cats, dogs, squirrels, and even an owl were allegedly found so neglected that several had to be euthanized. According to authorities, two dead cats and a dead woodchuck were also found on the property.

Scirocco’s house has been condemned and she has been charged with six counts of animal cruelty. However, the number and type of animals reportedly found on the property appear to indicate that there is more than simple animal abuse at play. It is possible that Scirocco exhibits serious mental disorders that time behind bars won’t solve. I ask that you recommend to the courts that Scirocco be required to undergo mental care so that whatever prompted her to reportedly harm these innocent animals is addressed.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. To neglect animals is inexcusable and unacceptable. If you cannot take care of your animals, then ask for help. You don’t just let animals languish in filth and deprive them of food and care. This is NOT ACCEPTABLE.

    Mentally ill or not – I have little sympathy for such people.
    They are often more cunning than one would expect.
    Justice for the animals is essential!
