Sick Dog Abandoned to Die Deserves Justice


Target: Don McSpadden, Batesville Prosecuting Attorney

Goal: Punish person who allegedly abandoned dying dog.

A sick dog died after being abandoned. We need to take action to make sure the person who apparently left the sick dog to die is prosecuted.

Shelter officials at City of Batesville Animal Control in Arkansas said the dog was dropped off by a group of people. However, a man can be seen on a surveillance camera callously disposing of the dog next to the animal control sign.

The dog unfortunately died because it was thought to have already been in extremely poor health at the time that it was dropped off. While the person who owned the dog may not have had the money to take it to an animal hospital, he could have waited until the next day to take it to the animal control center. A veterinarian may have been able to help the dog if the owner had chosen to do this. Instead, the animal suffered alone up until its last breath.

Demand officials do everything possible to bring whoever committed this heartless act to justice. Animals deserve better than to be tossed out in the cold like yesterday’s trash.


Dear Attorney McSpadden,

A dog owner reportedly abandoned his sick dog outside an animal control center after hours. If this person is caught, he must be prosecuted.

According to people who work at City of Batesville Animal Control, the animal was dropped off at the shelter by several individuals. They also saw one man on their surveillance camera leave the dog next to the building’s sign during the late afternoon hours.

Because the dog was in such poor health, it died outside that night. Although the man who dropped off the dog may not have been able to afford to get it help at an animal hospital, he could have kept the dog at home with him and dropped it off at the shelter the next day. There is a chance that a veterinarian may have been able to help it under those circumstances. The dog would then not have had to suffer throughout the night before passing away.

For all of these reasons, I urge you to do everything in your power to make sure that whoever did this is found and prosecuted. People who abandon pets as if they are trash deserve to be legally punished.

  1. This POS animal abuser needs to be exterminated!

  2. Linda Hilty-Tuttle says:

    I hope when he gets sick, everyone abandons him just like he did with this poor dog! When are we going to start doing “an eye for an eye” when it comes to animal abusers? To my way of thinking, that’s the only way these ignorant animal abusers will ever learn!

  3. This cruel & callous handling of this sweet dog is a crime — this individual should NEVER AGAIN own dogs or other animals — this idiot had options yet he chose the irrational & merciless path, giving no thought whatsoever to the dog — we do NOT want repeats of such crimes ever again — he should be punished and NEVER to own animals again — clearly, he’s a danger to them.

  4. Beth Knalfa says:

    I hope the Prosecuting Attorney takes action. Arkansas always allows these criminals to walk with no substantial consequences. People demand justice for this abuse. Please DO YOUR JOB, prosecute this menace to society!

  5. Margaret Melnick says:

    I don’t understand. People know this dog and who this person is why have they not called even anonymously and turned this sick sob in. I guess they are as cruel and bad as he is. What a bunch of low lives.

  6. KARMA GET THIS BASTARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Linda Barnett says:

    This is too shocking to believe. How someone so callous could do such a thing to a sick animal is beyond comprehension. There is no excuse for such ignorant cruelty and the individual responsible for this cruel act must be found, prosecuted and severely punished without question. The perpetrator obviously has no respect for animals or their well being. Find this sick scumbag and deal with him/her.
