Emaciated Dog Infested With Hookworm Found Wandering Streets Deserves Justice

Target: Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno
Goal: Find and arrest person responsible for abusing and abandoning sick dog.

A terribly abused dog, described by Michelle Holsinger, one of the rescuers as the “worst thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life,” was found wandering the streets. A passerby was walking in the Lehigh Acres area in Lee County, Florida, when they spotted the poor creature wandering aimlessly and called authorities.

The two-year-old dog, named Khaleesi, was picked up by Mutty Paws Rescue and provided medical care. It was determined that Khaleesi was infested with hookworm and was severely malnourished and underweight.

The rescuer stated, “when I tell you when I saw her, like, you can’t help but cry.”

Fortunately, Khaleesi is on the slow road to recovery, but she is still incredibly vulnerable. “She just wants you to hold her,” Holsinger said. “And the second you go to walk away, she just looks at you with her eyes. And it’s like, ‘come back.'”


Dear Sheriff Carmine Marceno,

A dog named Khaleesi was recently rescued in your county. Khaleesi was found wandering the streets aimlessly and was sick and incredibly malnourished. A passing bystander called authorities who rescued Khaleesi.

However, the poor animal was in bad shape. She was terribly underweight and was infested with hookworm. One rescuer described her as the “worst thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life.”

Fortunately, it sounds like Khaleesi is on the road to recovery but the abuse still lingers and the perpetrator still walks free. Please devote all necessary resources to find and arrest the person, or people, who abused and abandoned Khaleesi.

    People responsible for this should be euthanized.

  2. Patrick Butler says:

    Hideous sub-human(s) who did this must be brought to answer for this vicious cruelty!

  3. “Human” monsters that abuse the innocent need to be killed

  4. Animal abusers must have the mandatory death penalty implemented and nothing less!

  5. Find that non human abuser and deny him or her food for a month! Than ask how this person feels!
    And of course jail time !

  6. This is why we need CCTV systems at all public spaces! This is the best way to get whoever does evil stuff like this. As far that POS who did this, execute him or life w/o parole He will not be rap3d, at least not often.

  7. Please find the person who was supposed to take care and be Khaleesi’s guardian and put them in prison! This is outright animal torture and abuse. God Bless you Khaleesi

  8. Hopefully the responsible person will be found and made to face the law. Our laws must be stronger and provide protection to ALL animals no matter the state. People who do this need to be caught and brought to justice, they also need to pay ALL expenses for the dogs’s recovery, pay extremely high fines, go to court, face prison, and never be allowed to have another animal in their care. I would like to see a registry for abusers and a scar on their record which would be shown every time they tried to get a job, into higher education, or any government benefits. People need to know who is an abuser just as they need to know who is an abuser of children or sex trafficking. People such as this should not be allowed to hide from society.

  9. Animal abusers globally require mandatory instigation of the death penalty and nothing less!
