Dog Reportedly Abandoned and Forced to Eat Gravel to Survive Deserves Justice

Target: William Fitzpatrick, District Attorney of Onondaga County, NY

Goal: Prosecute woman accused of abandoning and nearly killing pet dog to fullest extent.

Authorities discovered a heartbreaking site in a New York basement. An apparently malnourished dog was eating gravel from the dirty floor. When rescuers took the animal to a veterinary center, she nearly died from cardiac arrest. An evaluation reportedly revealed she had the lowest body health score possible for a dog. Fortunately, she survived and now has the opportunity for a new beginning with a new name: Hope.

The woman who was reportedly supposed to be caring for Hope, Hortence Ngarissona, has been charged with two counts of animal cruelty. She allegedly abandoned this poor dog in the basement and never returned. The fact that Hope was consuming gravel indicates she may have endured long-term nutritional deficiency. Without the emergency intervention, she could very well have lost her life.

Sign the petition below to demand this innocent animal receive the justice she deserves.


Dear DA Fitzpatrick,

Far too often, defenseless pets are cast aside and abandoned…with tragic results. This fate seemingly almost befell Hope: a German shepherd found in a basement who had been reduced to skin and bones and who reportedly had nothing to eat but the gravel on the floor. Thankfully, good Samaritans saved her life. But her story will not have a happy ending unless the person allegedly responsible for her condition receives a fitting and appropriate punishment.

If Hortence Ngarissona did leave her pet dog to die, she needs to face the most severe consequences. Please fight for and ensure the maximum punishment if she is deemed guilty. Send a decisive message about deadly animal abandonment.

  2. This poor furbaby didnt deserve to be treated like she was. This is so horrible to do this to hope or any animal for that fact. This women needs to be charged and put in prison for along time and fined plus fix it where she can never have another animal of anykind in her precession or even care for somebody’s animals. Please don’t let her get away without being punished. SHE DESERVES SERVERE PUNISHMENT… PRAYERS FOR HOPE THAT SHE WAS FOUND AND RESCUED IN TIME BEFORE SHE COULD OF DIED AT ANY TIME. TY IM A VERY CONCERNED DOG LOVER.

  3. Me I would love to shit and kill every damn person that hurts are kills an animal that saying eye for and eye will I think it’s time the people take a stand fir all these poor Animals and do them the same way

  4. That bitch must be charged with 3 animal cruelty felonies. She must pay a $200,000 fine and all veterinarian bills/charges, she must serve 2 years in prison with no early parole, and she must be banned for life from owning or going near any animals ever again. Real justice would be if someone shot her dead.

    the animal torturers and animal killers are the epitome of EVIL.

    Jail time means nothing to garbage like this. Make this Hortence Ngarissona garbage pay for her dog’s medical bills. Hit her where it hurts her most – through her pocket. Teach her a damn lesson that she will remember. And don’t fall for the pathetic “I’ve got no money to pay” excuse that they always try on prosecutors. It’s always lies. They always have enough money to fill their fat cakeholes.
