Justice for Emaciated Dog Thrown Out of Moving Car


Target: Camelia M. Valdes, Passaic County Prosecutor

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the person who threw an emaciated dog out of a moving car.

An emaciated dog was tossed out of a moving vehicle and left for dead. The dog was unable to walk and smelled like fecal matter. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

A car slowed down only long enough to push a small dog out of its passenger-side door. The Shih Tzu, named Grant by his rescuers, was completely emaciated and covered in so many mats that only his nose and tongue were visible. Weighing only six pounds, he was so weak that he could hardly walk.

The Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge found Grant and rushed him to New Jersey’s Oradell Animal Hospital for treatment. He is receiving 24-hour care and slowly recovering. Sign below to demand the maximum penalty in this case.


Dear Prosecutor Valdes,

A dog was thrown from a moving car and left for dead. He was so emaciated that all of his bones showed through his skin. We demand justice for this innocent dog.

Grant, a Shih Tzu, suffered horrific neglect prior to his rescue. He had three-inch-deep mats covering his eyes, making it impossible for him to see. Horrifically underweight, Grant was too weak to walk and suffered from severe dental disease.

The people responsible for this neglect could face multiple counts of abandoning an animal and inflicting unnecessary pain to a living creature. We demand that you do everything to catch these individuals and recommend the maximum penalty by law.

  5. Someone knows who this dog belongs to and they must go to the authorities!! The monster needs to be punished and the only way to do that is make sure they are caught!!!

    I hope that Grant recovers and finds a wonderful and loving new home far different evidently from where he came from.

    John DeCando, chief animal control officer for Paterson, said authorities are pursuing information that may lead them to the person responsible for pushing the dog – who was named Grant by shelter workers – out of the car. DeCando said the vehicle belongs to a woman in her late 60s or early 70s who is currently in a rehab facility and was not behind the wheel when Grant was tossed onto the roadway. He did not disclose what type of rehab facility the vehicle owner was in or her relation to the person suspected of driving her car at the time of the incident. The motorist, however, is expected to face charges.

    “We expect to charge that person very, very shortly,” DeCando said.

    The individual will face fourth degree charges including inflicting unnecessary pain on a living creature, abandoning an animal on the side of a roadway, failing to provide necessary care to the dog and possibly other offences as well. He could face fines up to $3,000 for each offense or six months in jail – or both.“The way I look at it if you abuse a dog you should go to jail, period,” DeCando told New Jersey 101.5.
