Poodle Left for Dead in Trash Can Deserves Justice


Target: James O’Neill, New York Police Commissioner

Goal: Find and severely punish whoever is responsible for the poodle found in a trash can with a broken leg.

A 2-year-old poodle was found clinging to life in the bottom of a trash can at an apartment building. The animal had injuries to her face and a broken leg. The super of the building, who found the dog, says she appeared to be badly abused and just left for dead. Gladys Vasquez, one of the residents, says she’d seen the dog in the hallways with bruises all over her face and a broken leg. Vasquez and other residents gathered blankets and food, taking care of the poodle until police could arrive.

The poodle was then taken to the ASPCA where she’s receiving treatment, but the workers say it’s too early to know what to expect of her condition. Unfortunately, this poodle’s abuser remains at large and free to harm more innocent animals. Sign this petition to urge the authorities to do everything possible to find and severely punish the person who did this.


Dear Mr. O’Neill,

A poodle was left for dead in a trash can where she was found with facial injuries and a broken leg. It is believed that she’d been abused and tossed out like garbage.

This was a heartless act of cruelty to an innocent, defenseless animal that must not go unpunished. If this poodle’s abuser is allowed to continue walking the streets, free of punishment, they’ll become a danger to animals as well as humans. We implore you to do everything possible to make sure that the person who did this is found and severely punished.

    It’s probably the owner. A pity that no one has forced lawmakers to create a law that requires all animals to be micro-chipped, and to link it to their owners’ Social Security Number (so as to be easily traced).

  2. Denise Devereux says:

    For God’s sake you lazy law makers do something and enforce the full force of the law. You wonder why people take the law into their own hands. If this person is caught never allow ownership of pets again. To those that know who did this have some guts and tell the police. It could be your children next people that torturel move on to humans. Children like animals cannot fight back. To the perpatrator we are coming for you and your worst nightmare is about to come true and you to will feel the fear and pain this animal did. Burn in Hell!

  6. Jim – While the criminal who tortured this poodle will probably never be found, it should prompt those in law enforcement and the judicial system to impose stiffer penalties for those who choose to participate in animal torture/murder. The Animal Kingdom are citizens of this Earth, they deserve our respect and protection, and crimes against them need to be handled with just as much importance as any other torture and/or murder crime. Please!

  8. Elizabeth McCreery says:

    That cruel evil scum needs to be caught and shut in trash can and then seal it then starve the cruel swine suffer

  9. Iris Owens says:

    It’s incomprehensible how people can be so cruel to other living beings. People like this are dangerous and should be removed from society for the rest of their useless, miserable lives.

  10. Track and kill, these subjects do not deserve to live
    So much sick in the head you have to exterminate
    the hell is going to bring you
