Justice for 130 Dogs Severely Neglected in Kennel

Caged-by-Debora-Casali

Target: Bill Barron, Ann Brower, Lake County, Montana Commissioners

Goal: Remove 130 severely neglected dogs from kennel owners charged with animal cruelty.

Multiple dogs were found emaciated, dehydrated, and near death at a kennel. Investigators found about 130 dogs in the kennel. However, only 11 of them, those deemed in need of “special” veterinarian care, were rescued and will be under the care of a veterinarian for now. Reports say that some of the dogs could need months of treatment to recover.

The raid occurred after a deputy found numerous complaints about the kennel dating all the way back to 2008. It’s a shame that these owners were allowed to continue operating for so long despite years of complaints against them.

Larry and Nadine Latzke, the owners of LDR Kennels have been charged with aggravated animal cruelty, but they still have ownership of all but the 11 rescued dogs. The dogs will remain stuck at the kennel until August 10, when the court hearing is set to take place. Even then, there’s a chance that the owners will be allowed to keep them. Please add your name to this petition to demand that these innocent dogs be rescued and the kennel owners banned from owning animals, if guilty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Barron and Ms. Brower,

The owners of a kennel were charged with aggravated animal cruelty when authorities found some of their dogs emaciated, dehydrated, and near death. Despite years of complaints against the owners, all but 11 of the dogs were left in their care.

It’s a shame that these poor animals could be left under the care of people who neglect and abuse them. We urge you to do everything possible to help ensure that all 130 dogs are rescued from the shelter and the owners banned from owning any more animals, if guilty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Why was this moronic, heartless, cheap, lazy bum allowed to continue having a kennel and animals????? Who is in charge over there? Get some effective people in office. I pray they rot.

  2. Beth Knafla says:

    KEEP ON SUPPORTING YOUR PUPPY MILLS AND NO ANIMAL WELFARE LAW OR PROSECUTION! Montana is in the news more and more, they have animal welfare issues. GLAD I DON’T LIVE IN SUCH AN ANIMAL ABUSIVE STATE!

  3. Angela Rabon says:

    Who would allow animal abusers to keep animals of ANY kind??? That makes no sense!!!!

  4. Jenny Rae says:

    Shoot the owners and release these poor animals to a shelter where they will be cared for by those who really do care.

  5. Jacqueline Thurlow says:

    These poor innocent, defenceless furbabies, should be rescued from this place of horror immediately, not just 11. And the evil, cruel, sadistic, heartless and soulless scumbag monsters that own this place should be jailed for a long time and never allowed to own or be near any other poor innocent, defenceless furbabies.

  6. What kind of animal law allows such cruelty to be done to helpless animals time and again? It is a joke to let Larry and Nadine Latzke continue to own and abuse these poor suffering dogs. Both of them are pure evil and should not even be operating a kennel in the 1st place. Please be firm with people who deliberately harm animals and punish them harshly so that they could never own an animal again. Revoke LDR Kennels license permanently and rescue all the dogs/animals they have in their possession. Give these kind animals a chance to be adopted to good forever families…their happiness lie in your righteous hands Bill Barron and Ann Brower, if you would show some compassion and end their sufferings.

    Since today is August 12 and I only just found this petition, I’d like to know what happened to this couple in court 2 days ago. I hope someone with balls heard the case and decided to take all the other animals away from these abusers and gave them stiff penalties.

    I’ve signed this petition and shared on my Facebook in the hopes of getting many more signatures. These people should be ashamed of themselves and futhermore, arrested and jailed for what they’ve done.
