Crippled and Emaciated Dog Deserves Justice

Target: Allen County Prosecutor, Karen Richards
Goal: Find and prosecute person who starved dog.

A “severely malnourished” dog was recently found abandoned. The dog was so underfed that his ribs were clearly visible through his skin and he was unable to walk on his own. A passerby discovered the poor animal near a former Target building in Fort Wayne, Indiana (on the 7600 block of South Anthony Boulevard).

Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control officials suspect that the dog was confined to a small crate, based upon his behavior as observed by rescuers.

Holly Pasquinelli from Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control, lamented “When you see an animal come in in this condition, it’s so frustrating because we could’ve helped earlier and prevented this from happening, and helping those people too.”

Animal officials are seeking information from the public regarding the previous owners of this dog but no suspects have been announced.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Karen Richards, Allen County Prosecutor,

A severely malnourished dog was recently discovered in your jurisdiction. As you can see from a picture of this animal, the poor creature was just skin and bones. Animal control workers believe the dog had not only been horribly underfed, but was also likely kept confined to a small crate.

Animal abuse is a serious crime and we must devote sufficient resources to combating its scourge. I respectfully request that you commit all available resources to investigate and prosecute the person or persons responsible for the terrible suffering of this poor animal.

Sincerely,
[Your Name Here]

  1. People are Scum !! Thank God this pup was Saved!!!🙏🏼
    I signed … I pray he is ok

    • Exactly. Only scum would keep a animal in a cage with obviously NO FOOD. Enough is enough. When is this going to change and get better for animals. Just unbelievable that there are trash people out there’s that can do this!

      • Vergie Jurica says:

        You are so correct! People continue to abuse innocent defenseless animals bc our laws aren’t strict enough to stop them. Our moron Governor in TX vetoed a bill that could have added stricter laws to protect animals!

    • I totally agree!!! People are scum. This should have never happened to this pup. Thank God there are a few kind people who actually are kind & saved his life. Animals deserve respect.

    • Monsters. All animal abuses are monsters and may they spend eternity in hell where they belong.

  2. If some humans were treated as inhumanely as they CHOOSE to treat poor innocent animals, there might not BE cruelty, torture, and abuse!!! IT’S A CONSCIOUS CHOICE!!! “An eye for an eye…” “Do unto others…”

  3. Rose Coffey says:

    I hope the dog continues to get better each day and finds a loving forever home. I hope the idiot(s) who did this are found and punished to the fullest extent possible (and then some).

  4. Shirley Lemieux says:

    These kind of animal abusers are the worst to deal with because there is absolutely no need to put an animal through severe suffering and pain through means of starvation. These type people typically will take in a pet without ever providing Veterinary care. They lack responsibilities and are likely Government dependents. Instead of reaching out for help will instead either abandon their pet in an enclosure to slowly die from starvation and dehydration or dump their pet on public or private property. I hope that the people responsible for this crime is caught and the book of law thrown at them. Somebody, somewhere must know who owns this poor dog. I would think that placing a picture on media outlets local to the area or even at the local Police department Website might help in capturing the people who committed this terrible crime.

  5. THIS IS UNCONSCIONABLE AND UNACCEPTABLE THE CONDITION THAT THIS POOR DOG WAS LEFT IN. THE PERSON OR PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS MUST BE IDENTIFIED AND PUNISHED SEVERELY FOR THE PAIN, SUFFERING AND TRAUMA THIS POOR HELPLESS DOG WENT THROUGH. THIS IS HEART-BREAKING AND INFURIATING. THIS SWEET BEAUTIFUL DOG WAS JUST BARELY HANGING ON TO LIFE. HE WAS JUST SKIN AND BONES. THIS IS TRULY HEART-BREAKING TO SEE AN ANIMAL LOOK LIKE THIS. IT IS INEXCUSABLE AND UNCONSCIONABLE.

  6. Find a fucking disgusting animal abuser put a bullet in their head

  7. Anytime there is an abuse case like this, announce it far and wide. Have a human interest story on the local news outlets, have a reward for finding out who the “worthless owner/s” are and prosecute to the max. Animal abusers will tire of abusing animals and next up might be children. I have never met an animal that I didn’t like, but have run into many humans that shouldn’t be wasting our oxygen. Throw the book at every abuser.

  8. Evan Jane Kriss says:

    This is both UNCONSCIONABLE and UNACCEPTABLE. If you own an animal, you have a moral and ethical obligation to properly care for it; if you’re unwilling or unable to do so, you have a moral and ethical obligation to surrender it to an individual or an organization that can. I urge you to find and prosecute those responsible to the fullest extent of the law for egregious animal neglect and cruelty, make them pay all vet bills to restore this poor dog to full health and BAN them from ever purchasing, owning, caring for or working with any animals ever again.

  9. A Gilmore says:

    We MUST strengthen our cruelty LAWS, demand enforcement and punish the criminals who do this kind of thing. PLEASE lead. Please educate the public, create a national directory, make background checks mandatory, punish ANYONE who sells an animal to someone with a history of cruelty and PUT PEOPLE IN JAIL.

  10. p pucher says:

    Let who did this live in a small jail cell with no food. Asswipe.
    Prayers sweet baby

  11. Pamela Hengst says:

    Please keep getting better sweet dog. Thank you to the rescuer. As for the idiot that committed this terrible crime: no mercy. Lock him in a very small cage, no food, no water. Let him die there. No rescue for the coward.

  12. Whoever did this should be caged, starved and then set fire to. Absolutely hideous piece of scum

  13. THE BASTARD OR BITCH WHO DID THIS TO AN INNOCENT DOG NEEDS TO BE

    EXTERMINATORED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO BREATHE
    THE SAME AIR AS THIS INNOCENT DOG !!!!!!!!!!!!

    LAW ENFORECMENT DO YOUR JOB !! GIVE THEM SAME TREATMENT !!!

  14. Jaime Perez says:

    This is so heartbreaking and disgusting. How can a person do this to an innocent animal?! Whoever did this deserves to have all the bad karma bite them in the ass so hard they never recover. I’m glad they poor baby was rescued. May he heal soon.

  15. Carolyn Douglas says:

    His abuser(s) must be found and prosecuted. They need to pay a very stuff fine ($50k) and several years prison time . Animal abuse/cruelty/killing must have ENFORCED severe penalties. IMO

  16. This animal abuser needs to be caught and locked in a small crate. An eye for an eye!

  17. Lyla DeVita says:

    Crippled and evacuated dog, not to mention the hours of terror, loneliness and physiological suffering overall. No animal should EVER be subject to human whim. Prosecutor Richards, do everything in your power to incarcerate these two excuses for humans for a few years. Or lock them in a hot car with no hope for an hour. THEY ARE DANGEROUS and unworthy of any mercy.

  18. Stephanie Geyser says:

    And I bet the owners continued to stuff their fat cake-holes and obese stomachs with food, while their dog starved. Catch them. Starve them. It’s the ONLY way they will ever learn a lesson.

  19. Renata Kuchinsky says:

    Poor dog. Please find the criminal who tortured this dog. Harsh punishment is overdue.

  20. Just imagine putting your dog in a crate and keeping him there and not feeding him for god knows how long? What kind of mind does a person possess that would do such a thing? This type of behavior is extremely concerning. The person obviously has no empathy or compassion, and that is a very dangerous state of mind. We don’t come with clever little compassion switches that we can turn on and off at will. Compassion is NOT genuine if it excludes AN living being! Find this monster and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. I pray the poor dog can recover with care and love!
