Dehydrated Cats and Dogs Allegedly Trapped in Scorching Hot Moving Truck Deserve Justice

Target: Al Hadeed, County Attorney of Flagler County, Florida

Goal: Seek fitting punishment for suspects accused of entrapping 17 animals inside of blazing hot U-Haul without access to food or water.

U-Haul trucks usually signal new beginnings, but for 17 animals one of these trucks allegedly almost became the end. Four cats and over a dozen dogs were reportedly discovered in the back of one of these vehicles. Because of the sweltering conditions, authorities claim the animals may very well have died if they were not rescued. Their health conditions apparently included matted, feces-covered fur, and dehydration so severe the animals were panting.

Two suspects, Jason Donellan-Sparks and Shawna Doud, were arrested. In body cam footage, an officer who responded to the incident can seemingly be seen liberating the animals and telling the couple: “they’re dying, do you understand that? Do you understand that?” The couple apparently told the authorities that they were moving the pets and that they did not know where food or water for the animals was located.

If a good Samaritan had not allegedly heard the panicked pleas of these animals and reported the case, their fate could have been far worse. Sign the petition below to urge an appropriate penalty for these suspects if they are found guilty and appropriate medical treatment if they are deemed mentally unfit.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Hadeed,

Jason Donellan-Sparks and Shawna Doud face charges that they nearly subjected 17 cats and dogs to possible heat-stroke, dehydration, and starvation. These animals were reportedly discovered in the back of a U-Haul by authorities with no food or water and in sauna-like conditions. If these accusations are true, the animals who could have lost their lives were the very reason the good Samaritan statute for animal cruelty was signed into law.

Whether the suspects were experiencing diminished capacity or whether this alleged act was intentional, proper repercussions need to happen. Please ensure this case is prosecuted to the fullest extent and that appropriate penalties or mental health treatments result.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
