Justice for Dog Allegedly Abandoned with Deadly Tumor


Target: Tony Rackauckas, District Attorney for Orange County, California

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the woman who allegedly abandoned her dog with a large tumor in his side.

A woman allegedly abandoned her dog with a large tumor in his side. The tumor doubled the dog’s body weight and made it difficult for him to walk and relieve himself. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

Sherri Haughton reportedly brought Henry, a golden retriever, into the Newport Beach animal hospital with claims that she had found him wandering in the sand. A visible mass on Henry’s side concerned veterinarians, but Haughton vanished before they could talk to her about treatment. Per reports, Haughton has since been identified as Henry’s owner.

Henry was turned over to Newport Beach animal control, where he had surgery to remove the tumor. He is recovering well. Haughton has been charged with misdemeanor counts of animal neglect, failure to care for an animal, animal abuse causing life-threatening injuries and interfering with Newport Beach animal control officers’ investigation. Sign below to demand the maximum penalty in this case.


Dear District Attorney Rackauckas,

A dog was reportedly abandoned at an animal hospital. His owner allegedly lied to the staff, claiming to not know anything about his condition. We demand justice for this innocent dog.

When Henry arrived at the Newport Beach animal hospital, he could barely walk. The mass on his right side protruded so much that it made it difficult for him to urinate. Sherri Haughton, Henry’s owner, had allegedly brought him to the vet previously, but did not seek treatment after being informed of his condition.

By lying to the animal hospital, Haughton delayed the treatment that was crucial to Henry’s survival. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
