Target: Patrick J. Griffin, State’s Attorney for New Haven County, Connecticut
Goal: Demand that the person who starved a dog for two to three months, nearly leading to her death, face the maximum penalty.
A dog was nearly starved to death in one of the worst animal cruelty cases one animal shelter has ever seen. Veterinarians report that she was starved for two to three months and near death. Demand that justice is served for this innocent dog.
“She is all bones and her face is sunken in,” stated Laura Burban, director of the Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter. Hope, a lab mix, weighed only 30 pounds at the time of her rescue and was hours away from death. Veterinarians claim that Hope could not have been roaming outside for long because her body could not survive the cold weather. They suspect that someone deliberately starved her.
Hope is slowly recovering. Authorities have no suspects in this case and have asked for the public’s help. A reward has been offered for any information leading to an arrest. Sign below and demand that the person convicted receive the maximum penalty by law.
Dear State’s Attorney Griffin,
A dog was starved for two to three months and nearly died. The person responsible is still at large. We demand that justice is served for this innocent dog.
“Because the dog was in the process of shutting down we are trying to bring everything back, and we don’t know what type of permanent damage the dog is going to have,” stated Burban. The emaciated dog was found wandering by the side of the road. Shelter employees believe that she was kept in a crate or a room because she had bed sores throughout her body.
This horrific abuse cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
