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.
