Target: Kevin Beckner, Hillsborough County Commissioner
Goal: Shut down boarding facility where dogs were locked in crates without water and left in the hot sun for hours.
A Florida boarding facility reportedly locked dogs in crates and left them outside in the heat without access to water. This comes on the heels of several neglect and abuse complaints filed against the facility. Demand the immediate and permanent shutdown of this negligent facility.
A shocking video, taken at the Sit N’ Stay boarding facility in Hillsborough county, shows multiple dogs locked in crates and left in the hot sun. The dogs have no access to water for up to 19 hours at a time as part of their “training,” reports claim. When the dogs barked, attendants reportedly threw metal bowls at them and even jabbed them with broom handles. If the dogs did escape, they were reportedly muzzled with leashes that prevented them from panting.
Clarke Inghram, the owner of Sit ‘N Stay, has repeatedly been accused of abuse and neglect in the past. Sign below and demand the immediate and permanent shutdown of this facility.
Dear Commissioner Beckner,
A shocking video taken by a PETA representative shows the gut-wrenching abuse and neglect of dogs at the Sit ‘N Stay boarding facility. The dogs were reportedly subjected to torturous training methods, including water deprivation and heat exposure. Take a stand against animal abuse and shut down this facility.
Sit ‘N Stay boarding attendants allegedly spun dogs in the air with leashes attached to the dog’s choke collars. This abuse, called “helicoptering,” was reportedly used as a way of establishing dominance. Other training methods allegedly included deprivation of food, water, and necessary medications.
This abuse cannot be tolerated. We demand the immediate and permanent shutdown of this facility.
