Punish Man Who Was Charged With Dog Fighting Three Times

Target: Jeffrey Fink, Prosecuting Attorney for Kalamazoo County, Michigan

Goal: Stop allowing animal cruelty to go unpunished.

Kelvin Thomas has reportedly escaped justice following accusations of training fighting dogs. This is the third time Thomas has been charged with animal cruelty after police allegedly caught him training fighting dogs in his home. He was let off with an $8,000 fine, probation and only a five-year ban from owning animals. Not even a year ago, authorities removed ten dogs from Thomas’ home for the very same reason, and in 2013, 30 dogs were removed from his home.

According to reports, the judge claimed that the jail time was out of his hands, despite also saying that Thomas could’ve received eight years in jail for being a repeat offender. It seems the justice system basically gave a green light for people to cruelly use dogs for fighting. This is especially appalling considering the recent case where children were killed when a neighborhood dog attacked them on their way to school. Training fighting dogs is extremely cruel and dangerous not only for the animals themselves, but for other humans who could come into contact with the dogs. Please sign this petition to demand that the justice system stop turning a blind eye to animal cruelty.


Dear Mr. Fink,

I was appalled to learn that a man has been charged with animal cruelty a third time after being accused of dog fighting. Despite being a repeat offender, he was let off yet again without any jail time.

Dog fighting is extremely cruel, and it poses an additional threat to humans who may unknowingly come into contact with dogs who have been maltreated in this way. We demand that this injustice be reversed, and that the people who commit animal cruelty be punished appropriately.

  1. “The only difference between a dog, cat, horse and dolphin and a cow, chicken, pig and turkey is perception. One is no more valuable than another. And yet in this culture, we hold the former animals in high esteem and the latter we brutalize for food. All animals are deserving of respect and freedom from violence. The way to respect others is veganism.”

  3. Gabrielle Craddock says:

    I urge you to use the powers available to you, to pass a jail sentence on this repeat offender. Your duty is to protect the public. By jailing this despicable man, you will a) take him off the streets and b) show people with similar criminal and sick businesses to see that Crime Doesn’t Pay. Thank you G Craddock

  6. Crimes against animals MUST be taken seriously — enforcement of these laws MUST be strict & severe — there are way too many idiot-monsters loose in our world — Why are we allowing these psychos to get away with their horrific abuses & crimes against dogs !! — Who do they think they are — clearly, these imbeciles are a danger to all of society — we MUST round them up & throw them into prison — mete out severe punishments OR whatever it takes to ensure they do NOT repeat their demented crimes — LENGTHY prison terms — along with hefty fines — in addition, they are to be NO WHERE near dogs — we want NO repeats of abuse to and killings of animals, EVER !
