Dogs Apparently Starved to Death Deserve Justice

Target: District Attorney of Fayette County, Tennessee Mark E. Davidson

Goal: Prosecute former animal control employee who allegedly starved animals to death.

A former Fayette County Animal Control employee named Chad Smith was charged with 10 counts of animal cruelty after officers claimed they found numerous deceased dogs in his backyard. Smith needs to be punished to the fullest extent of the law if it is found that any animals died due to his actions.

Investigators determined that the dogs starved to death after landscapers reported seeing bones, carcasses, and kennels scattered around Smith’s property. Six dogs were said to be found alive, but they may have been subjected to the same unacceptable conditions if law enforcement had not intervened.

Sign this petition to demand Smith be held accountable for his actions and to further demand that he be banned from working with animals in the future if he is found guilty of such horrific abuse.


Dear District Attorney Davidson,

Chad Smith was charged with 10 counts of animal cruelty after it was alleged by officers that he did not provide dozens of dogs with food or water. Smith is a former animal control employee and should be sent to prison and not be legally allowed to work in any field that involves caring for animals if these allegations are found to be true.

The dead dogs were reportedly found in Smith’s backyard after landscapers said they saw many kennels, carcasses, and bones on his property. There were also six other dogs that were allegedly found alive in the same vicinity. However, they may have died of malnourishment if the incident had not been investigated. I therefore demand that Smith be given the harshest legal penalty and that he further no longer be allowed to work with animals if he is found guilty of these heartless actions so other similar incidents will be less likely to occur.

  1. “…therefore demand that Smith be given the harshest legal penalty and that he further no longer be allowed to work with animals if he is found guilty…” REALLY? That’s it? How about he never gets to be around any animals, period?

  2. Laura Rolder says:

    This will only stop if the Justice system locks these evil heartless monsters away for the max Felony time on each count. I believe they should suffer a horrible death the same as they did to these helpless innocent animals. They deserve love and to be treat with kindness and have food, water and proper shelter at all times. No more letting these murders off easy.

  3. Sandra Weber says:

    What a terrible betrayal of trust! This kind of cruelty will go on until these POS people are given huge penalties and forbidden to own or take care of any other animals!

  4. Urszula Lund says:

    This man is a mentally-deranged sadistic psychopath. What he did to the dogs is unspeakable cruelty that must be severely punished with many years behind bars. No animal will have to go through such untold tortures because of a DEHUMANIZED and DESENSITIZED sadist. This monster must be forbidden from coming near animals ever again. Punishment for animal abuse should be extremely harsh! As it is now animal-torturers get a slap on the wrist only, and start torturing more animals as soon as they are freed. Animals are like children and shall not be VICTIMS of DEHUMANIZED MONSTERS!!! LIFE behind bars for this Satan!

    • joanne bradley says:

      Totally agree with you. Make the punishment fit the crime and stop animal abusers getting off lightly. This psycho must be banned from owning animals for life. Long prison sentence for the murder and torture of innocent animals.



  6. someone should do to CHAD SMITH what he deserves because our laws for animal abuse are weak and pathetic!..

    • Diane Amaya says:

      I agree! Even if they actually get the maximum punishment, it’s never enough. If they were punished by the “eye for an eye” policy, regardless of whether it was to a person or animal, we would have so much less abuse and neglect going on, but at the very least, justice would be better served and we would get rid of the scum bags that think they’re above the law and keep doing this shit! I’m so tired of people getting away with this or just getting fined, with little to no consequences or jail time. What is it going to take to get some real justice for these poor animals??!!!!

  7. Shirley Lemieux says:

    This hypocrite, Chad Smith, who as a former animal control employee, is supposed to be protecting animals from animal abuse. But instead, he is the one doing the abusing and killing. I hope this Chad guy is prosecuted and convicted on all counts as he deserves it.

  9. Bosha Karanovic says:

    And the sentence was?

  10. Pamela Plambeck says:

    …very sick and disturbing, particularly from a former animal control employee.

  11. If anyone knew that this was cruel, horrific and despicable abuse of an animal it would be someone who worked for animal control. And it has to be deliberate abuse; that’s heinous in the extreme. He has to be prosecuted, punished as fully as allowed by law and banned from any animal contact for life. Someone this indifferent to life will re-offend and kill more animals if they are able.

  12. I am not stand humanity any more!!!!

  13. Here we are again another so called animal person who ends up on thewrong side again.What does it take to stop hiring people like thiswho disguise themselvesa sheep in wolfs clothing. All we do is go case to case counts to count. When is something really going to be done? WShen arelaws going to be made? when areback ground checks going to be done to hire or more. How these predators getting in around animals and the same around children?

  14. The owner(s) deserve fucking!!!

  15. Bernhard Yolanda says:

    That hideous cunt doesn’t deserve any more life. This idiot needs to be fucked to death.

  16. Tania Connor says:

    What a henious bastard , lock this vile individual away preferably with no food . Scumbag

  17. josie olive says:

    Give this piece of shit arsenic

  18. Nadine Brundage says:

    MR. Smith needs to be locked in a cell and left without food and water just like he did to those innocent dogs. That’s what I call justice for the voiceless. This scum needs to face severe consequences for the pain and suffering he caused. Enough with the usual slap on the wrist for these abusers as this is the reason why it’s rampant.


  20. This is unforgivable!!! 🙁
