Dehydrated Cats and Dogs Reportedly Trapped in Scorching Hot Truck Deserve Justice

Target: Al Hadeed, County Attorney of Flagler County, Florida

Goal: Punish suspects accused of entrapping 17 animals inside of blazing hot U-Haul without access to food or water.

U-Haul trucks usually signal new beginnings, but for 17 animals one of these trucks allegedly almost became the end. Four cats and over a dozen dogs were reportedly discovered in the back of one of these vehicles. Because of the sweltering conditions, authorities claim the animals may very well have died if they were not rescued. Their health conditions apparently included matted, feces-covered fur, and dehydration so severe the animals were panting.

Two suspects, Jason Donellan-Sparks and Shawna Doud, were arrested. In body cam footage, an officer who responded to the incident can seemingly be seen liberating the animals and telling the couple: “they’re dying, do you understand that? Do you understand that?” The couple apparently told the authorities that they were moving the pets and that they did not know where food or water for the animals was located.

If a good Samaritan had not allegedly heard the panicked pleas of these animals and reported the case, their fate could have been far worse. Sign the petition below to urge an appropriate penalty for these suspects if they are found guilty and appropriate medical treatment if they are deemed mentally unfit.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Hadeed,

Jason Donellan-Sparks and Shawna Doud face charges that they nearly subjected 17 cats and dogs to possible heat-stroke, dehydration, and starvation. These animals were reportedly discovered in the back of a U-Haul by authorities with no food or water and in sauna-like conditions. If these accusations are true, the animals who could have lost their lives were the very reason the good Samaritan statute for animal cruelty was signed into law.

Whether the suspects were experiencing diminished mental capacity or whether this alleged act was intentional, proper repercussions need to happen. Please ensure this case is prosecuted to the fullest extent and that appropriate penalties or mental health treatments result.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    FLORIDA HOUSES THE COUNTRIES DUMBEST INBRED LOSERS FROM TOP DOWN TO IDOITS LIKE THESE TOTSL CUNTS! AND WTF ARE THESE INBRED MORONS DOING WITH SO MANY ANIMALS IN THE FIRST PLACE? FLORIDA BLOWS! CANT WAIT UNTIL THE OCEAN CONSUMES IT!

  2. Execute the fuckers responsible.make them suffer

  3. What a real couple of god damn losers – don’t know where the food is located – OMG give us all a break you pathetic couple of bastards. What in the hell would ever give anyone the thought that transporting animals in an enclosed van is the answer – you 2 are beyond stupid – you need to be the ones locked up in the van with no food or water – Jesus H Christ – you 2 are the definition of ‘STUPID’

    MORONS LIKE THIS SHOULD BE LOCKED IN A U-HAUL UNTIL NEARLY DEAD AND SEE HOW THEY LIKE IT.

  6. This is a horrible form of abuse and neglect! The perpetrators should receive the harshest penalties!

  7. These people are liars and/or too stupid to ever have animals again. Prosecute to full extent of law …. and then change the animal abuse laws so that they are TRULY on a par with abuse against humans laws.

  8. They didn’t know where food and water was located? Fucking DUMBSHITS. Uh….you buy food at the store and god damn water is free out of the tap. Fucking MORONS! Jail these asswipes!

  9. These 2 are just plain stupid – I am sure somewhere along the line they have learned to live off of society and remain the losers they have become. No one with a brain would transport animals in this way. No more being around animals for either of them.

  10. DO THE SAME THING WITH THESE STUPID PEOPLE. LOK THEM UP IN A HOT TRUCK FOR HOURS OR BETTER DAYS WITH NO FOOD OR WATER SO THEY CAN FEEL WHAT IT MEANS FOR ANIMALS. NO MERCY.

    • Rita, that is the perfect solution for these idiots….so by playing stupid they think they can get away with it….how dare these POS to make cats and dogs suffer…..they need to be locked up and forget to even take them out….they do not deserve the free air they breathe….an eye for an eye dumb a*** you will one day pay for what you have done to innocent animals….they do not deserve to live anymore….PUNISHMENT TO THE FULLEST

  11. How stupid can these 2 people be. They didn’t know where to get food & water, give me a break. If you don’t know where to get it, stop at a store & buy some. I’m sure they must have passed some kind of gas station or convenience store. They’re just playing dumb so they don’t get punished. Put them in jail with no food or water & turn on the heat. Let them feel what those animals felt. People just make me sick.

  12. Those 2 lying morons need to be punished the way child abusers are punished for almost killing those innocent cats & dogs. There is no excuse for their stupidity except that they were from inbred parents in California.

  13. Stupid . You don’t know ere the food and water is for your pets? How fucking stupid are they??! Let those morons sit in a hot car. Then go directly to jail. Do not pass go. Prayers sweet furry loves

    Oh, they had a U Haul but no food or water for these poor animals, lock these two idiots in the UHaul , no food, no water ,no air let’s see how long they last. Unbelievable, stupid or brain dead? Hope justice for the voiceless gets served as you can’t fix Stupid.

  15. You see this just keeps happening over and over. These evil pieces of crap know better and know not to do it, but they just want to do it anyway. Since the laws are pretty much useless and don’t give a dam about animal welfare, these people know they can get away with this crap. I blame the laws as well as these useless waste of breath. We all ask for punishment for these twits but they won’t do anything other than a slap on the wrist, if that!

  16. I see the back of a UHaul trailer with their names written all over it. Let’s see how much they enjoy being in there. Just need to make sure no Good Samaritan is around to help them out of it.

  17. This is a great example of ” if you see something or know something, say something”. It’s difficult to actually stop the heartless actions of others but when we get involved and stay vigilant we can help to stop as much as possible.

  18. Excuse me, but if they knew how to rent a uhaul, they knew what they were doing…jail those bitches…forever!!!

    How heartless! Glad the animals are safe. What in the world were the idiots doing with all those pets? That needs to be the first question. Please do not let those two go without punishment.
