Dog and Pig Allegedly Abandoned and Starved Deserve Justice

Target: Morris Richardson, County Attorney for Brevard County, FL

Goal: Prosecute woman accused of abandoning and starving pets to fullest extent.

A woman who claims her job is to care for animals has allegedly caused the pain, suffering, and death of two animals under her care. A deceased dog and a pig near death were reportedly found at a residence where suspect Lita Rogers once lived. Heartbreakingly, the dog’s remains were discovered beside an empty food bowl, indicating the canine likely died from starvation. The pig is currently recovering from apparent malnourishment as well.

The animals were seemingly being looked after by Rogers and her boyfriend prior to his death. After an argument with the boyfriend’s family, Rogers apparently vacated the residence and left the animals behind. Despite reportedly returning to this household several times, the suspect allegedly made no effort to feed, rehome, or otherwise help these suffering animals. When asked about her seeming lack of action, this woman—who says she is a veterinary technician—reportedly claimed the animals were not her responsibility.

Authorities apparently disagreed. The sheriff in charge of the investigation stated, “she took her anger out on this poor, helpless dog and this pig.” Rogers has since been charged with animal abandonment and animal cruelty. Sign the petition below to ensure she faces full legal repercussions if found guilty.


Dear DA Richardson,

“This lady left these animals, left them behind. Now, it’s not bad enough that she left them behind. She says that it wasn’t her responsibility.” Sheriff Wayne Ivey’s distress concerning the animal cruelty case brought against Lita Rogers is apparent. The sheriff’s officers came upon a horrific scene when they found a badly decomposed dog beside an empty food bowl, along with a starving pig.

If Ms. Rogers did abandon these animals to an agonizing death, she cannot claim ignorance of their condition, as she reportedly made several return visits to the house. She apparently could check on the status of her car, but not on the well-being of the living beings inside. Ms. Rogers also could not claim she did not understand the gravity of her alleged actions. She is a vet tech, so she should know the consequences of neglect. Her reported occupation makes the charges against her all the worse.

Please send a strong message about the seriousness of any form of animal cruelty by seeking the maximum punishment in the event of a guilty finding.

  1. The answer is simple….starve this woman to death and be rid of her.

  2. Sherry Abela says:

    Ms Rogers clearly has no compassion for a living being. If found guilty she should be punished to the fullest extent of the law and her “Vet Tech” status be permanently revoked. Please permanently keep her from ever caring for or owning another animal.

  3. Lock her up and starve her

  4. Animal abusers globally require instigation of the death penalty and nothing less.
