Target: Miami Dade State Attorney, Katherine Fernandez Rundle
Goal: Prosecute the veterinarian accused of causing a kitten’s painful death after performing an illegal declawing operation.
A kitten reportedly suffered from severe complications after being taken to a sham veterinarian to be declawed. Toby the kitten suffered from infected and exposed bones and necrosis on his paws. Vomiting and dehydration were also listed among little Toby’s terrible symptoms. Reports have said that a diagnosis hinted at possible sepsis of the bone and bone marrow.
The owner’s attorney claims his client wasn’t aware of the veterinarian being illegitimate, but police say she knew. However, she’s still facing animal cruelty charges alongside an assistant who allegedly helped perform the procedure.
The Animal Welfare Society of South Florida says the owner took between 14-17 days to even seek help for the kitten, but she’d told police it was only a few days. The assistant has reportedly been charged with animal cruelty, but according to outlets, the man who performed the illegal and deadly procedure has yet to be charged, even though police reports name him.
It will be a complete injustice if this “veterinarian” is not charged for this heinous crime against a tiny, innocent kitten. It seems likely that he will only go on to hurt and possibly kill more animals if something isn’t done to stop him immediately. This so-called veterinarian should be completely barred from ever having close contact with animals again.
Demand that when authorities find the person who performed this disgusting procedure on an innocent kitten, they charge him with everything the law can charge him with, including animal cruelty.
Dear Katherine Rundle,
It has come to our attention that an innocent kitten suffered from a horrific infection and painful injuries after being declawed by a veterinarian who was reportedly not legitimate. The owner and the veterinarian’s assistant have been charged with animal cruelty, but the man who allegedly performed the procedure that ultimately killed the kitten has yet to be charged.
This sick human being was performing surgeries on innocent animals and acting as a veterinarian, maybe just for monetary gain. It’s a shame that he hasn’t been charged yet. We demand that when found, the “veterinarian” is charged with animal cruelty and given the maximum punishment.
