Punish Owner of Shelter Apparently Found With Feces-Caked Walls, Raw Sores, No Water, and Puppy Carcasses

Target: Rachel Mitchell, Prosecutor for Maricopa County, AZ

Goal: Prosecute woman charged with 77 counts of animal cruelty to fullest extent.

A disturbing case involving dozens of special needs dogs recently created quite a stir on social media. The animals were reportedly found in deplorable conditions at the residence of April McLaughlin, who operated a supposed rescue shelter called the Special Needs Animal Welfare League. Investigators reported the following: exposed ribs, urine and feces-caked walls, raw sores, immobile limbs, no water, and puppy carcasses. Several of the dogs were apparently in such a deteriorated state that they had to be euthanized. The Arizona Humane Society said in a statement, “these dogs were suffering horrifically.”

After prolonged pressure from local activists and the discovery of the animals by police, charges were brought before the prosecutor’s office but were seemingly dropped until a more thorough investigation could be completed. Now that this police investigation is done, McLaughlin is once again facing animal cruelty charges totaling 77. The case also compelled needed reforms in the locality’s cruelty laws.

But true justice will not be served for these animals if prosecutors once again fail at the job. Sign the petition below to demand full legal consequences for this suspect if she is found guilty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prosecutor Mitchell,

You asked Chandler police to deliver more evidence against Special Needs Animal Welfare League operator April McLaughlin, and they have apparently done the job. Even local leaders are in the process of amending laws to better protect at-risk animals. Now the responsibility rests with you to close this sad chapter in a meaningful way by holding this suspect fully accountable for any crimes of which she is found guilty.

The 55 animals involved in this case are among the most vulnerable, and their lives matter. Please prosecute this case with vigilance and seek the maximum possible penalty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  7. THIS CANNOT HAPPEN TO INNOCENT DOGS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    DO YOU HEAR ME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    THIS SUB HUMAN MUST BE PUNISHED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW!!!!

    LAW ENFORCEMENT DO YOUR JOB ~ bring justice for these dogs who suffered so much!!!!!!!!!!

  8. This is sick!!! Imprison this woman for the rest of her miserable life.

  9. In the 1600s p, suspected witches were dragged from their homes and dealt with accordingly.
    Not always fair as the majority of these woman were innocent.
    But, not this waste of space piece of human crap!
    People keep saying maximum punishment please. The useless Judicial system really does not give a toss and will do virtually nothing because they are JUST ANIMALS AND DO NOT MATTER!!
    Well what needs to happen to this twat of a woman is the same method as the so -called witches!
    Dragged from her house or wherever the towrag lives and beaten to an inch of her life so she knows what she has done will not be tolerated.
    If she dies of her injuries well so be it. Anyone who can do this to animals, mainly dogs it seems, does not deserve to live anyway.
    It is the only way that other animal torturers are going to realise that this torture and cruelty WILL NOT be tolerated! These tossers all deserve to die anyway as they are just sub- human trash and definitely surplus to requirements!!

    P.S. Am I not a ‘good boy’ ? I have managed to write my submission this time without using a ‘naughty’ word!
    But with all of these scumbags that keep coming out of the woodwork I’m not sure how long I can keep it up!!😏

  10. Put this lady behind bars so she can suffer a small amount of what she did to these innocent animals. It is our place to be a voice for the voiceless. Please stand up for them.

  11. Dennis Busto says:

    ABSOLUTELY NO TOLERANCE TOWARDS ANIMAL ABUSE N CRUELTY. NONE!!! THROW THE BOOK AT THIS POS MONSTER 😡

  12. That bitch is guilty. She must be sentenced to 77 years in prison with no early parole (1 year in prison for each animal cruelty charge). I really hope someone in prison kills her. That will be justice.

  13. Death penalty for this sick killer, kill this bitch!
    Justice for animals! +RIP
