Target: Caroline A. Wojtaszek, District Attorney for Niagara County, New York
Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the woman who allegedly starved her dogs and allowed one to jump from a second-story balcony.
Two malnourished dogs were found in a home in Niagara Falls. Concerned citizens called police after they reportedly witnessed one of the dogs jump from a second-story balcony. Demand justice for these innocent dogs.
Officers from the Niagara Falls Police Department responded to the call after a citizen expressed concern for a dog’s welfare. The pit bull, who had reportedly jumped from a second-story balcony, was noted by police to “appear extremely malnourished, very skinny to the point where you could see the dog’s rib cage, spine and hip bones.” Another malnourished pit bull was found inside of the residence.
The pit bulls were taken to the Niagara County SPCA for treatment. Tina Merecki, the dogs’ owner, was charged with two misdemeanor counts of failure to provide proper sustenance to the animals. Sign below and demand that Merecki receive the maximum penalty, if convicted.
Dear District Attorney Wojtaszek,
The Niagara Falls Police Department removed two pit bulls from a local residence after one reportedly jumped from a second-story balcony. The dogs appeared extremely malnourished. We demand justice for these innocent dogs.
When an animal control officer visited the two dogs at the Niagara County SPCA, he expressed concern that at least one of the dogs would not recover. It is unknown whether one of the dogs suffered injuries after it jumped from the balcony, but both were so malnourished that their bones showed through their skin. Officers found no dog food during their search of the residence.
This alleged neglect cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
