Dog Reportedly Pummeled and Beaten Repeatedly by Owner Deserves Justice

Target: Monroe County, New York District Attorney Sandra Doorley

Goal: Give prison sentence to man who allegedly punched his dog repeatedly outside a veterinary clinic and do not allow him to continue having pets.

A black Labrador retriever, named Jetta, was reportedly punched over and over again by the owner outside of a veterinary clinic. Michael Maiorano is now facing animal cruelty charges for the crime. He needs to be given a prison sentence and have his dog taken away if he is found guilty of this unthinkable act.

Police were alerted to the alleged incident when workers at Mendon Village Animal Hospital called authorities to tell them that they saw Maiorano punch Jetta both outside the clinic and inside his car. According to the Lollypop Farm Vice President for Humane Law Enforcement, Reno Di Domenico, people who act out against their animals often do so more than once. Sign this petition to demand Maiorano get a tough legal sentence for this crime and to further insist that he no longer be legally allowed to keep pets if it is found he mistreated Jetta.


Dear District Attorney Doorley,

Michael Maiorano may be charged with animal cruelty for allegedly punching his dog, Jetta, many times outside of a veterinary clinic. It is important that he not only be put in prison but that he also no longer be allowed to be around animals if it is found he committed this crime, to better ensure other dogs will be safe.

Staff at the Mendon Village Animal Hospital called police after numerous people said they saw Maiorano repeatedly punch Jetta with a closed fist outside of the office and inside his vehicle. One of the main authorities involved in the investigation made a statement explaining that people who lash out against their pets usually display this type of anger toward the animal more than one time, indicating that Jetta could be in serious danger if the dog stays with Maiorano.

While Maiorano may receive a year in prison and be required to pay a $1,000 fine, it is not known what happened to Jetta after police learned about the alleged incident. For these reasons, I demand you seek a stringent legal sentence for Maiorano and that you also tell the courts that Jetta should be placed in the custody of local animal care officials if it is discovered he mistreated this innocent creature.
