Golden Retriever Shot and Left in Agony Deserves Justice

Target: Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell, Arizona

Goal: Hold the perpetrator accountable for the cruel shooting of Marvin, the Golden Retriever.

Shocking details emerged from Phoenix where Marvin, a 2-year-old Golden Retriever mix, endured severe pain after being shot in his left hind leg. This heartbreaking incident left him bleeding, dehydrated, and in shock. The urgent call for justice arises from this cruel act of violence against an innocent animal.

Upon discovery, Maricopa County Animal Care and Control swiftly intervened, taking Marvin to the Arizona Humane Society for immediate care. An x-ray revealed a severe fracture in his limb. Over the weeks, dedicated medical staff performed numerous procedures to manage his wounds, administer antibiotics, and alleviate his pain with medication.

The ongoing recovery of Marvin at a foster home underscores the dire need for legal intervention. Those responsible for such cruelty must face the consequences of their actions to prevent future incidents. We demand that the local authorities take immediate action to investigate and bring justice for Marvin.


Dear Attorney Rachel Mitchell,

We are writing to you distressed and outraged over the shooting of Marvin, a 2-year-old Golden Retriever mix, in Phoenix. This act of cruelty not only left Marvin severely injured but also highlighted the urgent need for stringent enforcement of animal cruelty laws in our community.

Marvin was found in a dire state, suffering from a gunshot wound that caused significant bleeding and a severe fracture. Thanks to the intervention of Maricopa County Animal Care and Control and the dedicated care at the Arizona Humane Society, Marvin is now recovering. However, his journey underscores the brutal reality many animals face and the imperative need for justice and accountability.

We implore you to take swift action to investigate this incident thoroughly and ensure that those responsible are held accountable. We ask for justice for Marvin and for measures that will prevent such cruelty from occurring again in our community.

  1. Again we have a situation where a person with a malfunction brain shot Marvin in the lag and left him in torturing pain. You must feel so proud. This is not the work of an adult but a teen. Arrest his parents. Crime is crime! This was done with malicious intent coming from a disturbed mind. Parents see these things changing in their kids. This involves the whole family. Just like the teen shooter of the 4 kids in Michigan, all dead, has the same intent. Our kids are not well. Youtube shows wonderful educational videos but also disturbing torture videos. The company needs to choose. All of them do! They are either worth while or not worth anything. It’s not both ways. Bring justice to this case! We would also like to know the outcome of this harm done to Marvin. We read all this on this site, appreciate the truth of it, but need to know more about the cases mentioned and the outcomes. Thank you.

  2. Somebody knows who did this, cowards like to brag and the lowlife has left a trail. Offer a reward and follow the money to his front door and jail him, fine him, make his life the hell he deserves.
