Applaud Rescue of Dog Chained Up in Trash Pile

Target: Connie Cooke, President, Houston Humane Society

Goal: Praise the rescue of a guard dog forced to live among garbage and broken glass for four years.

A dog was recently rescued from an auto shop where it lived in a trash pile for several years. The white pit bull, named CJ, was found chained to the back bumper of a van, forced to live among broken glass and discarded beer cans. In the four years he was kept as a guard dog, CJ was given no shelter to escape the sweltering Texas heat or the wet winter season.

CJ was found only after the owners of the auto shop brought in another severely neglected dog, which caused authorities to take a closer look at the conditions inside the shop. Gabby, a small black dog, was taken to the vet after her leg was hacked off. While Gabby’s owners claimed that she had chewed the leg off herself after she was hit by a car, physical evidence suggested that the story was false.

After Gabby was seized and her owners charged with animal cruelty, investigators were sent to the auto yard. There, they found CJ chained to a vehicle and suffering greatly. Veterinarians found CJ to be suffering from heartworm and mange, and they suspect that he has been mistreated for a very long time.

This kind of drawn-out abuse is tantamount to torture, and could very well have resulted in the deaths of both of the dogs. Now, both dogs will be given a second chance in loving homes after rehabilitation. Sign the petition below to applaud officials for saving CJ from a life of neglect and abuse.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Cooke,

CJ, a white pit bull, was recently rescued from an auto yard where he was kept chained to the bumper of a vehicle. Kept as a guard dog, CJ was forced to sleep in a trash pile without shelter for an estimated four years before rescue. The dog shows signs of ongoing neglect, including a serious case of mange as well as heartworm.

Now that CJ has been rescued, he will be given a second chance at life in a new home. We, the undersigned, thank you for working to save him and bring charges against his abusers.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    WHY DO THIS TO AN ANIMAL, THEY MUST BE SICK AND TWISTED BASTARDS, IF ONLY SOME ONE HAD THE BALLS TO BRING THESE EVIL VILE SO CALLED HUMAN BEINGS TO JUSTICE I THINK THE WORLD BE APPLAUDED, WELL ALL ANIMAL LOVERS WOULD. THERE ARE JUST TO MANY EVIL PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD,

  4. KARMA GET THOSE BASTARDS SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. OMG………We live in a world of monsters and those involved in this case are just that …monsters and must be treated as such. They must be severely punished with jail time, a huge fine, banned from ever having or being around animals and made to get psychiatric help as they are sick. How can anyone cut a leg off any animal and then just let it suffer such horrific pain and suffering with out doing anything??? Both of these dogs were horrifically abused and justice must be gotten for them.

    Gabby chewed of her own leg??? What rot! These precious dogs tortured heinously for far too long. I pray they will be able to be rehabilitated enough and find it in their heart to forgive the human race, and learn to trust again. Thank you so very much for ‘looking’ into this car yard and saving these dogs. Now pray the justice system carries out the prosecution to the fullest.
