Demand Stricter Penalties for Animal Cruelty Following Rescue of 35 Dogs

Target: Gavin Newsom, Governor of California, USA

Goal: Enact tougher laws against animal cruelty to prevent future suffering.

In a shocking revelation from Grass Valley, California, a two-year investigation culminated in a distressing discovery at Pitty-Pop Pitbull Rescue. The proprietor, Linda Vaccarezza, was found guilty of misdemeanor animal cruelty and running a kennel sans permit. This case has brought to light the grim reality of what can happen behind the scenes in places meant to be sanctuaries for our four-legged friends.

Authorities were alerted to the situation in March 2023, leading to the rescue of numerous animals in dire straits. Among them, a little gray puppy, found in a soaked cage, displayed signs of severe neglect—emaciated, lethargic, and covered in sores. This pup, along with others, suffered in conditions no living being should ever endure. The animals, once living in filth and neglect, received much-needed care after their rescue, yet the scars of their ordeal remain.

This case underscores an urgent need for stricter legal frameworks to combat animal cruelty. Advocate for changes that reflect the seriousness of such offenses. Demand that our laws protect the most vulnerable among us, ensuring perpetrators face consequences befitting their actions. Call upon local government officials to strengthen penalties for animal cruelty, ensuring justice for these innocent victims and deterring future atrocities.


Dear Governor Gavin Newsom,

The recent case in Grass Valley, where 35 dogs were rescued from appalling conditions, has laid bare the urgent necessity for more stringent animal cruelty laws. The discovery of a puppy, among others, in a state of severe neglect—emaciated, unable to walk, and suffering from infections—spotlights the dire consequences of inadequate legal deterrents. This incident is not an isolated tragedy but a clarion call for immediate legislative action.

While the conviction of the kennel’s owner marks a step towards justice, the current legal repercussions fail to match the severity of the wrongdoing. The suffering endured by these animals, detailed in the investigation, is a testament to the need for a robust legal framework that truly deters such heinous acts. It is crucial that our laws reflect a zero-tolerance stance on animal cruelty, ensuring that future offenders face penalties that mirror the gravity of their crimes.

Therefore, I urge you to champion the enactment of tougher laws against animal cruelty. By doing so, we can honor the plight of the victims in this case and protect countless others from similar fates. It is our moral obligation to ensure that our community does not turn a blind eye to the suffering of innocent beings. Let us stand together in advocating for a future where such acts of cruelty are met with the full force of the law.

  1. Throw this stinking ho bag in jail for a very long time. She’s a cheat and a liar who needs to be taken out of society so she can never harm another animal!! What a disgusting monster she is.

  2. The nightmare continues for these poor babies under the care of Linda Vaccarezza. Clearly she is a fraud and a monster in disguise. Revoke her permit permanently and ban her from keeping animals again!
