Justice for Puppy Allegedly Subjected to Brutal Eye Maiming With Hot Kitchen Knife

Target: Heather L. Adams, District Attorney for Lancaster County, PA

Goal: Prosecute and punish couple who allegedly used a kitchen knife to operate on puppy.

A Pennsylvania puppy was allegedly subjected to an unauthorized and painful medical procedure by a dog breeder. According to the state’s Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) chapter, Ray Martin (with his wife’s assistance) performed surgery with a knife he had heated on the English bulldog puppy’s eye in the couple’s kitchen. No pain medication or numbing were apparently provided during this torturous process.

The alleged act was said to be done in response to a condition known as cherry eye that the puppy had developed. Martin reportedly removed an essential gland around the eyelid. Because the procedure allegedly did not include veterinary supervision, this young animal will likely need continued care and treatment for the remainder of his life. For both the alleged crimes of failure to provide veterinary care and knowingly torturing an animal, this suspect has been charged with two counts of animal cruelty.

Sign the petition below to demand the maximum punishment for Martin and additional charges for the woman accused of aiding and abetting him.


Dear Ms. Adams,

A breeder purchases a puppy, and a short time later this breeder faces animal cruelty charges. The evidence for these charges comes from a concerned veterinarian who examined the young animal. These are the basic facts in the animal cruelty case brought against Ray Hoover Martin.

The facts, however, could never truly encompass this living being’s alleged suffering. The puppy’s eye was reportedly cut with a scalding hot kitchen knife. The pain, as you can imagine, would have been unbearable. According to reports, the puppy did not receive even miniscule pain relief. The professionals looking after him estimate he will now need life-long care for this apparent maiming.

Please prosecute Martin and his alleged “assistant,” his wife, to the fullest extent of the law.
