Prosecute Groomer Accused of Kicking Dog


Target: Kevin E. VanderSchel, U.S. Attorney of the Southern District of Iowa

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the groomer who allegedly kicked a dog and broke his ribs.

A dog suffered broken ribs after he was reportedly kicked by his groomer. He screamed in pain and could hardly walk following his appointment. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

Jasper was not himself after his grooming appointment at the Creature Comfort Veterinary Center in Iowa City. The corgi walked slowly and with his ears down, refusing to jump into his owner’s car. Veterinarians diagnosed him with multiple rib fractures and lung damage. Per police reports, the groomer admitted to kicking Jasper during the appointment.

The groomer has been charged with animal neglect, a misdemeanor, and could face jail time if convicted. Sign below and demand the maximum penalty in this case.


Dear U.S. Attorney VanderSchel,

A corgi endured great pain and suffering, allegedly at the hands of his groomer. He sustained broken ribs and tissue damage during his appointment. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty for this alleged animal abuser.

Jasper wears a large bruise on his side after his groomer allegedly kicked him. It will take him at least four to six weeks to heal from the painful bone and tissue damage reportedly sustained during this routine appointment. Emotionally, he may never be the same.

This abuse cannot go unpunished. Ban this groomer from working with animals ever again and punish him to the greatest extent of the law.

    Jail the animal torturing monster. Kick him to death, get rid of this subhuman lowlife filth.
    You call this fuck a groomer. He is not a groomer he is a sadistic and vile heinous animal torturing monster from hell.
    I am sick and tired of the unimaginable torture and suffering monsters like his vile and sadistic prick commit against the innocent.

  3. Bev Woodburn says:

    And make sure this animal torture bastard is jailed for life for his deliberate cruelty and suffering this f— committed against a helpless and innocent Corgi Dog.
    How many other innocent Dogs or innocent animals has this monsters tortured and made to suffer.
    What the hell is wrong with the human race like this psychopathic monster? Die you bastard.

  4. This is a case of severe animal abuse deliberately done to cause grievous hurt to an innocent animal. Such a person should never even be allowed or hired to deal with animals. To protect their pets, customers have the right to know this vile groomer’s name and shop that he works for which is not mentioned in this petition.

  5. My bad, the name is Creature Comfort Veterinary Center in Iowa City stated here.

  6. Admitted his guilt. Don’t waste time slapping his wrist, show some backbone.

  7. A Corgi Mom says:

    Just saw that they changed the charges to a harder penalty!! Thank God! The fact that this was a corgi shows how very hard he kicked that dog! We got a corgi when my youngest were little because we wanted a sturdy dog, with 2 young boys. While my boys were never in any way abusive, they were still 5 and 3 and loved as boys do. Our corgi rough housed, chased and played sports with my boys until the day we had to put him down, he was 14yrs old. They are strong dogs, bred to take cattle and horses kicking. This person deserves the worst. Hope and pray the corgi is ok.
