Starving Dog Left to Die in Abandoned School Deserves Justice

Target: St. Louis Animal Cruelty Task Force

Goal: Get justice for starving pittie abandoned in shuttered St. Louis school.

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to sweep the nation, schools must make the decision of when they will reopen their facilities. As some open, one school in St. Louis, Missouri remained shut down, with its students sent to different buildings. But one soul was recently discovered roaming its debris-filled halls: a starving, trapped, and desperate Pitbull.

Thankfully rescuers saved the sweet pittie, affectionately named Teacher’s Pet, in time. But one question remains: how did he come to be trapped on the second floor of a shuttered building? Sign the petition to ask the Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Cruelty Task Force (ACT) & St. Louis Authorities to continue to investigate!

In a video posted by Stray Rescue of St. Louis, you can watch each moment of Teacher’s Pet’s rescue. Rescuers had been called about tormented howls coming from an abandoned school building, so they came to investigate. When they looked up, they saw the Pitbull’s face peering out at them from a shattered window. He was saved.

Rescuers could tell from the number of feces that Teacher’s Pet had stayed mainly in one classroom. That and his emaciated state alerted them to the fact that he had been trapped there for far too long.

Other than “the shattered remains of a first-floor window…on the other side of [which] was a 12-foot drop,” it was impossible for Teacher’s Pet to have gotten into the building without being “deliberately dumped.” Rescuers themselves had a difficult time getting in to save him, and he hadn’t suffered any injuries like cuts or broken bones from a fall. St. Louis’ ACT must work with local authorities to find out who abandoned him to die, and stop them from harming any other animals.

Sign the petition to make sure that no other animals are left like Teacher’s Pet was.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear St. Louis ACT,

A school in St. Louis, shuttered due to the coronavirus pandemic, was recently discovered to be home to an emaciated pit bull. Affectionately named Teacher’s Pet by his rescuers, he was skin-and-bones by that time but did not have any injuries to suggest that he was trapped in the building of his own accord. Rather, it appears that the only way he could have been in the boarded-up building was if he had been abandoned there by someone intentionally.

Someone left Teacher’s Pet there to die, and it was simply a matter of luck that he was found, living in a classroom on the second floor. He survived the ordeal, but there is no guarantee that it won’t happen again, and the next animal might not be so lucky.

Please, investigate this incident and make sure that you find the guilty parties and that this does not happen to any more animals.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. OMG! This poor dog! Thank God you found him in time. There must be CCTV in the area the police can search and find the sadistic person who just dumped him. Please St. Louis Teacher’s Pet deserves JUSTICE. DO NOT LET THE FALL BY THE WAYSIDE. The person may do it again to another innocent

  2. Find the mindless cowards and prosecute to the fullest.

  3. Sociapath go these things and enjoy it. The people need to be found and punished

  4. Fuckin loser lock him away forever!!!

  5. SADISTIC MONSTER!!!! FIND THIS BASTARD AND PROSECUTE!!!!!

  6. ‘Offer’ the owner the same treatment!!!

  7. Joan Rosenfeld says:

    Do the same to the monster that did this!

  8. Thank you once again Stray Rescue; you and the other rescue groups out there can’t be thanked often enough for the kind care and dangerous situations you all put yourself in for these innocent animals. I don’t know what can be done for the heartless “individuals” (to be polite) who continue to arm animals but whatever it takes I’m all for it!

  9. There will be no justice for him. We just found a sweet elderly dog tied up in a park.I lost any optimism i had. My friend found a sweet pitbull in a cat colony last year and kept him. This happens EVERY SINGLE DAY.

    Are there any cameras? I am thankful to Stray Rescue!
    Please find him a happy safe forever home…

    Please find them as this is attempted murder and should have the same consequences as would for humans. Such a person cannot not go without punishment as they will most likely Do more heinous acts. THERE NEEDS TO BE CONSEQUENCES!!

    IF THE LAW DOES NOT GET YOU I HOPE YOU GET TREATED THE SAME BACK!!! IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS!!!

  12. I can’t wrap my head around this type of cruelty….why?! You couldn’t drop the dog off at a shelter? This isnt something to be taken lightly, domestic animals are our responsibility, we created them. They are essentially perpetual toddlers that need care. I see no difference to this than if they abandoned a baby in the school. Find the perp and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. And most importantly……BAN THEM FOR LIFE FROM OWNING OR HAVING ANY ANIMAL IN THEIR CARE.

  13. When are we going to call this what it is???? Attempted murder. We cannot call animals sentient being but treat them like things. The law and judges need to know people are getting fed up these sad stories and the sick people who do it.

  14. Cruel bastard’s lock them away for good 😠
