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. North Carolina definitely seems to have a reputation of not doing too much to animal abusers. Not sure if it is laziness or that State Legislatures lack creating and or enforcing laws about anything other than for themselves. What happened to this puppy was a horrible crime. We are talking about a developing baby who was thrown out of a car by none other than a violent man, and may now suffer from future discomfort due to the bone fractures or injuries. Let us hope that David Paul George does not get off lightly for this cruel criminal act that could have killed this young puppy.

  2. Another low-life mother-fucker that is going to get away with hurting an innocent dog. Does anyone want to bet me a lot of money that this sonofabitch won’t spend one day in jail and will probably not be fined on top of it? And will probably own another dog in a short amount of time. This shit is never going to stop until someone or some group starts hunting these bastards down and eliminating from this earth. Because one thing is for damn sure. The law, the courts and the judges are not going to do a damn thing to stop it. Someone needs to start a list of animal abusers and killers. Make a list, check it twice. Find out who’s been naughty or nice. The nice ones get to live. The naughty ones get to die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • My sentiments exactly, Johnny K. Well said. Think of the scum we could rid this planet of if all these filty low lifes could just be eliminated….preferably VERY painfully.

      My sentiments as well Johnny!!! I believe *WE, THE ANIMAL LOVING, ANIMAL ADVOCATING PEOPLE* need to rally, recruit ANIMAL LOVERS WITH SPEC OPS, BLACK OPS TRAINING AND DEAL WITH THESE ANIMAL TORTURING SCUM OURSELVES, SINCE THE “POWERS THAT BE” DONT GIVE A SHIT, DONT DO THEIR JOBS AND FEEL ANIMALS ARE “LESS THANS”. NEWS FLASH–ANIMALS *ARE NOT* LESS THANS!!! LETS START TREATING THEM AS SUCH!!! Let the punishment fit the crime!! This scum deserves tossed out a moving vehicle to the point of equal injury, starved and some torture for good measure! The aftermath of exacting our retribution on these animal torturing scum should be left for the authorities and public to see the aftermath of their sins and used to make an example for idiot, would-be future abusers. I believe it would help deter a lot of abuse
      to defenseless animals if the abusers knew they would end up MEETING THE SAME FATE. PROSECUTE THIS SHIT BAG TO THE FULLEST!! TRAGICALLY, IT WONT AMOUNT TO SQUAT….

    ANIMAL ABUSERS MUST BE “SEVERELY PUNISHED” !!!
    They will murder others due to their “DANGEROUS CRIMINAL ACT’S THAT HAS NOT BEEN STOPPED!!!

  5. This low life coward has to be held accountable for his horrible treatment of this puppy. Throwing the puppy out of the car window like a piece of garbage. The poor puppy must have been so scared and need up bruised, battered with multiple fractures. Is it so difficult to walk into a shelter and hand over a puppy you don’t want? Instead, your actions end up costing this puppy a lot of pain and suffering. I hope you receive the most severe sentences.

  6. Stephanie Geyser says:

    I wonder if this piece of garbage will throw his own children out of his car when he tires of them? If (God forbid) he breeds himself from his sperm.

  7. DEAR GOD, WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THESE SO CALLED `HUMANS`, JUST WHAT??
    EVIL, VILE, WICKED TREATMENT OF AN ANIMAL.
    NO EXCUSE, NONE AT ALL.
    THIS WORTHLESS PIECE OF `HUMAN` FLESH MUST BE DEALT WITH ACCORDINGLY AND PUNISHED TO THE FULLEST DEGREE. ITS ABOUT TIME YOU GOT ON WITH IT AND MADE EXAMPLES OF THESE LOW-LIFES.
    NO, NO, NO EXCUSES ARE ACCEPTABLE.
    SHAME ON YOU ALL, SHAME ON YOU.
    KARMA WILL ALWAYS FIND THOSE COMPLICIT IN THESE WICKED, EVIL ACTIONS…ALWAYS.

  8. This vile, mentally deranged severe/attempted dog killer requires instigation of the death penalty. A slow and agonizing extermination of this evil cretin is essential without delay!!

  9. Grab his keys, tape his ass to the street, and mow him down with his own vehicle!!!!! That’s the only way to stop these fuckers — by treating them to a worse version of whatever they dished out.
