Dogs Apparently Abandoned and Left to Die in Woods Deserve Justice

Target: Acting Atlantic County, New Jersey Prosecuting Attorney Cary Shill

Goal: Give woman prison sentence for allegedly deserting her dogs in the woods without food or water.

Five dogs were allegedly dumped in the woods and left to die by their owner, Jodi Wozniak. She needs to be brought to justice if she is found guilty of this crime, to better ensure she will not be able to harm more animals.

According to reports, some of the dogs had been abandoned in their kennels without access to food or water. Others were found tied up to trees. The land owner claimed that Wozniak had deserted the dogs at least 15 hours prior to when they were found. The dogs still technically belong to her because she refused to surrender them to the shelter. They have, instead, been placed on a protective hold. When this happens the animal in question is usually held for a while before either being adopted out, sold, or euthanized. However, sometimes owners are allowed to take seized animals home.

Wozniak was indicted on five counts of animal cruelty and several other charges. Sign this petition to demand Wozniak be suitably punished under the law if it is found she committed these actions and to further insist that she not be legally allowed to regain custody of the dogs she allegedly abandoned.


Dear Acting Prosecuting Attorney Shill,

Jodi Wozniak was indicted on five counts of animal cruelty after officers stated she left her dogs stranded in the woods without anything to eat or drink. It is important that she receive a fitting legal sentence to make it less likely other animals will suffer under her care.

Reports state that some of the dogs were tethered to trees, while others had been left to starve in their kennels. According to Wozniak’s former landlord, the dogs had been discarded for over half a day before they were discovered.

The Atlantic County Animal Shelter currently has the dogs on a protective hold, although there is still a chance Wozniak could once again be given custody of her animals. For these reasons, we demand you seek the strictest punishment for Wozniak possible and that you further insist she be denied the chance to take her animals home if she is found guilty of displaying such mistreatment.

    This is one sick bitch who should never be allowed to own any animals. Do not give those dogs back to her, she is unstable. Who does something so cruel to their pets? Do not care what her reasons were, never good enough as that is heartless and cruel.

  2. Christine Nuttall says:

    This piece of crap needs throwing in jail without food and water and left to rot!! Vile piece of Sh*t.

  3. That bitch does not need the dogs back. She needs jail time. She tried murder those dogs. They need a safe home. Prayers sweet poochieo!

  4. The laws on the books now, are a joke.
    There should be stiffer penalties…
    and stiffer jail times….
    They should not be able to own another pet and must register as an offender for life.

    Right now it’s a slap on the wrist
    and a small fine

  5. Animal abuse and torture must never be tolerated anywhere in the world! Prosecute to the greatest extent of the law!

  6. She should be given the same treatment she gave to these dogs- either left in cage or tied to a tree and left to die a slow painful death.

  7. Shirley Lemieux says:

    People like Jodi Wozniak should never be able to own pets in the future. There should also be a National database of people who commit cruelty to animals. There is no excuse for these type crimes.


  9. PLEASE! Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law as this heartless person does NOT possess the EMPATHY needed to CARE for ANY SUCH ANIMAL! Do not allow her to possess, own, adopt NOR be in close vicinity of ANY ANIMAL as she will cruelly starve them to death!

  10. Evan Jane Kriss says:

    Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law for abandoning animals, make her PAY ALL VET BILLS to restore these poor dogs to full health, BAN her from ever purchasing, owning, caring for or working with any animals ever again and DUMP HER OUT IN THE WOODS with no food or water, and let her see how it feels.

  11. Love that word, allegedly! This BITCH did this to these dogs! This crappy state better prosecute her & NEVER allow this degenerate or anyone else in her household own any sort of pet! Tie her to a tree, sounds fair!

  12. Simone Giaquinto says:

    “according to the law”!!! Are you kidding me? What law? If there was a law, she would be in jail right now and would be serving time. When will the laws in America be changed and then strictly enforced? Not in our lifetime. So sad.

  13. Heartless Wench! I hope she gets hers one day. If she didn’t want her dogs she could have rehomed them.

  14. She should be tied to a tree without food and water for days, so she can have perfect understanding of the horrible things that she did..JUSTICE. she should have jail time, fines and NEVER BE ABLE TO OWN ANIMALS EVER AGAIN!

  15. God calls upon us to be stewards for his creations not to steal them away from their environment or habitats not to put them in cages not to test them not to mistreat them and not to exploit them if you don’t want them then give them up to an animal shelter if they’re your personal pets

  16. What this cruel evil punk really needs is to be heavily chained, outside with no shelter food or water… and forgotten…A menace to animals and humans alike. MUST BE REMOVED FROM SOCIETY FOREVER – IN MY OPINION

    I AGREE WTH “ Marty+A.
    PLEASE! Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law as this heartless person does NOT possess the EMPATHY needed to CARE for ANY SUCH ANIMAL! Do not allow her to possess, own, adopt NOR be in close vicinity of ANY ANIMAL as she will cruelly starve them to death!”

  18. She doesn’t deserve to ever own or be near any animal!!! She should be tied to a tree in the woods without food or water -that would be justice!!!

  19. NJ is jacked up as it is! I they allow her to get those poor dogs back, they are JUST as responsible for the horrific outcome of those pups!!!!

  20. This vile,mentally deranged severe dog abusing bitch must have the death penalty implemented.A slow and agonising death for this vile,repulsive itch is essential!
