Justice for Puppy Allegedly Thrown From Car Window at Shelter

Target: Ashley Hornsby Welch, District Attorney for Swain County, NC

Goal: Prosecute man accused of abandoning and causing injury to defenseless puppy to fullest extent.

A small puppy became the focus of a week-long search in a rural North Carolina town. Video captured a man allegedly driving up to an animal shelter and throwing the puppy out the window before taking off. While it took some time for worried shelter workers to locate the pup, he was eventually found bruised and malnourished but alive. The rough manner of the alleged abandonment had also apparently caused some bone fractures.

David Paul George has since been reportedly identified as the person in the video. He has been charged with animal cruelty and abandonment. The puppy, now named Apollo, is in recovery and has already drawn much interest for future adoption.

While his harrowing journey has a happy ending, he now needs the full measure of justice. Sign the petition below to demand the maximum penalty be sought in this disturbing case.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear DA Welch,

Swain County lacks a real animal control or ordinance structure and relies solely on the good work of one shelter. These unfortunate circumstances have compounded the potential for acts of brazen abandonment and cruelty while making the mission of this shelter all the more difficult. The recent case involving the alleged abandonment and subsequent search for Apollo the puppy highlights this problem.

“This morning, even though our gate was open he chose to sling a puppy out the window.” This is how a shelter representative described the circumstances that brought Apollo to attention. When he was located, the young animal had reportedly endured malnourishment, bone fractures, and other threats to his health.

David Paul George, the man charged in this incident, should face full repercussions if he is found guilty of this egregious act. Please send a message that in Swain County, innocent animals still matter.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Throw David George out of a fast moving vehicle and leave him to die painfully where he lands….

  2. An eye for an eye is needed here!

  3. Carradean Hopley says:

    Vile

  4. Would love to throw him off a bridge

  5. Low down rat could have easily opened the car door and let the puppy out but he chose to throw it out the window. Don’t let some lenient judge let him get off with no consequences!

      If the “justice” system fails again to do its’ job then WE MUST!! May this bastard die a thousand torturous deaths and be damned to hell!!

  6. Margaret Strane says:

    Do the same to this guy. Show no mercy.

  7. PLEASE GET JUSTICE FOR THIS POOR INNOCENT BABY!!!! ANIMAL ABUSE IS NOTHING BUT PURE MEANNESS BY HUMAN BEINGS. IT HAS GOT TO STOP. PUNISH THESE PEOPLE HARSHLY ENOUGH SO THEY WILL THINK TWICE ABOUT DOING IT !!!!!

  8. How about we throw David Paul George out of a 10 story window. Seems fair.

  9. Felony charges is a must for this evil monster. Lock him away for a long long time. No more slap on the wrist for these evil humans. That poor puppy was helpless and innocent.

  10. I’d like to throw this pos out of a plane and watch him hit Terra firma

  11. Janet Stephens says:

    There is no excuse for David Paul George’s abuse of this puppy. He needs to be removed from society – he’s dangerous, unfeeling, and mentally unfit to associate with animals or people.

  12. This makes me sick and so angry!! The assholes responsible need to be thrown off a bridge with cement below!! To hurt an innocent animal and to be so damn lazy they couldn’t even get out of the car to bring it inside the shelter- there is no excuse for this! Damn him and whoever else was in that car- God bless and protect all animals from monsters like this! They should never be allowed to own or go near another animal ever!!!

  13. THROW THIS CRUEL ABUSIVE ASSHOLE OUT OF A MOVING 18-WHEELER & MAKE SURE HE LANDS ON ASPHALT OR CONCRETE!!!! THIS CRUEL ABUSIVE ASSHOLE DOESN’T DESERVE THE PRIVILEGE OF OWNIMG, ADOPTING, AND BEING AROUMD ANY MIRE DOGS AS WELL AS ALL ITHER ANIMALS FOR THE REST IF HIS MISERABLE LIFE!!!!!!!

  14. On the other hand, how about incarcerating this person in a prison along with animal-loving members of the underworld. I believe they are really in the best position to “advise” the perpetrator of the error of his ways and “explain” the more appropriate course of action when a pet is no longer valued or important – or loved.
    I reckon two days’ behind bars would probably be more than adequate.
    And think how much money that would save the state.
    However, before incarceration, a huge fine should be imposed to cover: hospitalisation, hospital staff, medicine, care, care-givers, toys, bedding, food as well as a donation to the charity/shelter/animal hospital involved.
    I think we’re all agreed that authorities seem to be too soft on such criminals: the fine needs to be punitive – no more slapped wrists and “go away and be a good boy”.

  15. This POS clearly has no value to add to society so let’s go ahead and throw it (it merits no human pronouns) out of a car moving at 80 mph. Many would pay to watch!

  16. This man is selfish and vile. I do hope he will be punished to the fullest extent of the law. I am also Happy Apollo found his forever and loving home.

  17. The only punishment is a public fucking for this bastard.

  18. Adrienne Kaiser says:

    Im tired of being politically correct with my responses to these POS animal abusers!! Im with everyone else who has responded. Throw this POS out of the window of a moving car at night so other vehicles can run over his sorry ass and be done with it!! One less POS animal abuser to deal with.

  19. Probably a POS ILLEGAL, CLOSE THE BORDERS
