Justice for Dogs Reportedly Crated in Heat Without Water


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.

    After being found guilty of brutally and intentionally abusing and torturing so many innocent pets & animals on numerous occasions, Sit N’ Stay boarding facility CANNOT BE ALLOWED to remain in operation. Please impose the harshest punishments for owner Clarke Inghram and his cruel staff. Put them on shame list so that they could never have any career that is related to any animals.

  2. If there is abuse and neglect of these dogs why has any of these legal animal control establishment not gone in to remove the dogs? is this a rich man political set-up? I cant understand why there is proof pictures and lots of comment and this posted via internet and nothing is done. what is happening here??!!

    The State of Florida allowed Casey Anthony to go free after killing her daughter… I am not sure this will matter much to them either. This speaks to the government officials of Florida, and their anything is OK attitude.
