Justice for Dog Allegedly Punched and Kicked on Video

Target: Todd Spitzer, District Attorney of Orange County, CA

Goal: Seek full penalty against man accused of assaulting pet dog if he is found guilty.

A dog named Steeler suffered serious trauma when he was allegedly assaulted by the person who should have been protecting and caring for him. The dog became the subject a viral video reportedly showing Steeler being repeatedly punched and kicked in a hallway. A video doorbell captured the apparent act of cruelty.

Suspect Albert Abad, Steeler’s caretaker, surrendered the dog and then surrendered himself to police. Steeler has since been examined and treated by veterinary professionals. In response to Abad’s detention, the local district attorney released the following statement: “as a result of excellent police work, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office will prosecute this abuser to the fullest extent of the law, and we will send a strong message that the abuse of animals will not be tolerated.”

Sign the petition below to hold the DA to this vow.


Dear DA Spitzer,

When a man was captured on a video doorbell allegedly beating his pet dog, public outrage helped raise awareness and lead to an eventual arrest. At the time of Albert Abad’s surrender to authorities, you pledged that he would be prosecuted to the fullest extent. You also stressed that animal cruelty will not be tolerated within your jurisdiction.

Please stay vigilant in this case, honor your promises, and send a decisive message about the ongoing threat of animal abuse in America.

    This filth bag severe dog abusing scumbag requires instigation of the death penalty and nothing less. A slow and agonizing death for this evil cretin is essential!

  2. There is no room in a civilized society for mistreatment of animals. How cruel can this owner be? Our laws must be tougher and our judges leaning more toward the rights of animals and those abused … no abusers. Abuse leads to death of children, women, and animals. Why?
    Why do men feel it is their right to decide who lives or dies. Why are women, children, and animals the way men can beat out their aggressions using another living being to gratify this disturbing behavior. To lose control of your sanity in this fashion Neds to be a prison sentence of 10 years or more no matter the age of the aggressor. No priors? No problem. Do this crime and do the time!!!!! No exceptions ro excuses.
