Emaciated Dog Infested With Hookworm Found Wandering Streets Deserves Justice

Target: Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno
Goal: Find and arrest person responsible for abusing and abandoning sick dog.

A terribly abused dog, described by Michelle Holsinger, one of the rescuers as the “worst thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life,” was found wandering the streets. A passerby was walking in the Lehigh Acres area in Lee County, Florida, when they spotted the poor creature wandering aimlessly and called authorities.

The two-year-old dog, named Khaleesi, was picked up by Mutty Paws Rescue and provided medical care. It was determined that Khaleesi was infested with hookworm and was severely malnourished and underweight.

The rescuer stated, “when I tell you when I saw her, like, you can’t help but cry.”

Fortunately, Khaleesi is on the slow road to recovery, but she is still incredibly vulnerable. “She just wants you to hold her,” Holsinger said. “And the second you go to walk away, she just looks at you with her eyes. And it’s like, ‘come back.'”


Dear Sheriff Carmine Marceno,

A dog named Khaleesi was recently rescued in your county. Khaleesi was found wandering the streets aimlessly and was sick and incredibly malnourished. A passing bystander called authorities who rescued Khaleesi.

However, the poor animal was in bad shape. She was terribly underweight and was infested with hookworm. One rescuer described her as the “worst thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life.”

Fortunately, it sounds like Khaleesi is on the road to recovery but the abuse still lingers and the perpetrator still walks free. Please devote all necessary resources to find and arrest the person, or people, who abused and abandoned Khaleesi.

    Poor baby…I hope they find whoever did this to that poor soul…evil heartless bastard/s…let’s get justice for this sweetie

  2. How humans can be so cruel and not look after their beloved pets is beyond horrific. Thank you to the wonderful angel who stopped and made sure this sweet vulnerable dog received the help she needed. Find and prosecute the monster who left this poor baby to die.

  3. There are a lot of heartless scumbags out there that turn their ignorant heads to ppor helpless animals like this. This poor dog would have surely died if not picked up when he was. How inexcusable and unacceptable these things are. It is our responsibility to care for all of our other living feeling beings – they are the VOICELESS. We hope that this poor dog recovers fully and that the “inhuman” person that allowed this dog to get to this sickly state AND abandoned him gets identified, found, and punished SEVERELY for the pain, suffering and TRAUMA he or she put upon this poor animal.

  4. The POS sub human bastard(s) responsible for the hell on earth this poor soul suffered should be hunted down and executed! There is no place in society for these twisted monsters. Get them off the planet!! May they rot in hell for eternity.

  5. Unfortunately, this is Florida = selfish republican hell, where manatees are being extinguished for motorboating pleasure, everglades changed into sugarcane, seas swept empty (i was a child diving in the Keys, and know of the immense devastation done) by grubby fishkillers for pleasure, and now home to the worst person ever known to have existed – and you KNOW who that is.
    So, until Florida gets some restoration of healthy community and kindness, the abuse of animals, including the captive wild ones, will cruelly continue the psychotic culture.

  6. Rose Coffey says:

    Pretty hopeless to even think of toning down violence in today’s world when we have creatures out there who would be so hateful to innocent animals. One day their conscious is going to get the better of them and they’ll not be able to escape their own thoughts.

  7. No human being would steap this low to abuse this poor dog. Stop calling animal abuers humans.there far from being fucking human. This cunt is a weak loser who couldn’t fight a paper bag if it sticks it on it face. Bet this mong retard inbred is either fat and ugly or black and ugly who looks like a back end of a fucking bus. Bring back the electric chair and hanging asp stop the govement looking like a simple retared bastards and to frightened to bring back capital punishment this would stop crime big time

  8. Are we becoming a heartless country? What is wrong with humanity today. We see this too many times and unfortunately I do not see an end to this. Please put this person(s) away for life.

  9. You must have to be a real loser and an animal abuser to live in Florida! There are always stories coming from there.
    WTF is wrong with you idiots how can any human treat any animal with this much abuse this is so horrible and she deserves a loving home for the rest of her life. I look at my rescue dogs and I am so thankful for every day I spend with them. I just know that they never did anything in their lives to be dropped off and abused – they are my treasures and I cherish them. This poor dog deserves the very best of treatment and love – please help her.

  10. You know I sign petition after petition and I donate when I can, yet it seems that the torture and mistreatment of animals just keeps getting worse everyday. Why is it so hard to stop this kind of abuse of animals, why aren’t the abusers punished more than with a slap on the wrist? Maybe it’s time for a little street justice to these bastards that beat and starve defenseless animals, I’m sick and tired of these petitions and nothing happens. If the “authorities won’t do their jobs, then citizens will have to.

  17. Why does this cruelty keep happening in Florida? They need animal cruelty laws in this state!!! Find the scumbag POS that did this and put them behind bars now!!!! People if you can’t take care of a dog, don’t get one!!!

  18. Evan Jane Kriss says:

    Find and PROSECUTE the heartless monster who abandoned this poor dog to the fullest extent of the law for egregious animal cruelty and neglect.. Animal abandonment should be a CRIME! Make him or her PAY ALL VET BILLS to restore this poor soul to full health. 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.
