Justice for Dog Allegedly Starved to Death by Owner

Target: District Attorney Anne Donnelly

Goal: Enforce stringent legal action against the alleged severe neglect resulting in a dog’s starvation.

In West Hempstead, a harrowing incident surfaced involving a dog named Jessica. Distressingly thin, Jessica’s condition, as described by District Attorney Anne Donnelly, raises alarming questions about her care. Allegations suggest Jessica’s owner, Kevin Barnett, neglected her to the point of starvation. This petition seeks justice for Jessica, demanding legal action against her alleged neglect.

Jessica, found encased in a filthy blanket, reportedly displayed severe signs of malnutrition. The necropsy revealed a disturbing scenario: ingestion of non-food items, overgrown nails, and a body condition scoring a mere 1 out of 9 on the Purina scale. These details paint a bleak picture of Jessica’s final days, indicating she desperately sought nourishment. Yet, despite these findings, Barnett attempted to adopt another dog, further exacerbating concerns about his suitability as a pet owner.

The community’s outrage over this case is palpable. Animal cruelty, especially at this alleged level, cannot go unaddressed. Ensuring accountability in cases like Jessica’s not only serves justice but also safeguards other animals from potential harm. Demand stringent legal action against Barnett to prevent further animal suffering and to uphold community standards of care and compassion.


Dear District Attorney Anne Donnelly,

The community remains shocked and saddened by the tragic case of Jessica, a dog allegedly starved to the point of death under the care of Kevin Barnett. We urge you to consider the severity of this situation and the emotional impact it has had on the community. Jessica’s case is not just about one dog; it’s a testament to our society’s stance on animal welfare and cruelty.

The details of Jessica’s state, as revealed in the necropsy, are deeply disturbing. Her extreme malnutrition, indicated by the lowest possible score on the Purina Body Condition scale, and the ingestion of non-food items speak volumes about her suffering. Such alleged neglect must be met with appropriate legal consequences to serve as a deterrent for future potential animal cruelty cases.

Therefore, we implore you to take decisive action in this case. Jessica’s story deserves justice, and the community expects a firm response to such alleged acts of cruelty. By ensuring legal accountability, we send a clear message about the value of animal life and the consequences of neglect. We seek assurance that cases like Jessica’s are taken seriously and that justice is served.
