Punish Woman Who Allegedly Denied Medical Care to Sick Puppies

Target: Tony Rackauckas, District Attorney for Orange County, California

 Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the woman who allegedly denied crucial veterinarian care to sick puppies and then sold them, resulting in the death of 30 puppies.

Thirty puppies died after a woman allegedly denied them vital medical treatment. The woman reportedly sold the puppies through a fake pet rescue organization without informing the buyers of their illnesses. Demand justice for these innocent puppies.

Bailey was one of more than 100 puppies sold by Pawlosophy, a fake pet rescue organization reportedly run by Megan Ann Hoechstetter. Bailey reportedly became seriously ill shortly after adoption and died from parvovirus a week later. Since then, 29 more Pawlosophy puppies have reportedly died, all of them suffering from viral and parasitic infections including parvovirus, coccidia and giardia.

Hoechstetter has been charged with 20 misdemeanor counts of keeping an animal without proper care and two misdemeanor counts of animal abuse by a caretaker. Nineteen sick puppies were taken from Hoechstetter and given veterinary care. Sign below and demand that Hoechstetter receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney Rackauckas,

More than 100 puppies were reportedly neglected by the head of a fake pet rescue organization, leading to the death of 30. She reportedly sold the puppies without seeking medical treatment for their various viral and parasitic infections. We demand justice for these innocent puppies.

The Irvine Police Department began investigating Hoechstetter after they received reports of her selling sick puppies. They reportedly found six puppies for sale in Hoechstetter’s trunk and 13 sick puppies in her hotel room. Per police reports, Hoechstetter lied to buyers about the puppies’ health and charged $400 for each 8-week-old puppy.

Too many dogs have reportedly died at this woman’s hands. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

    I have one question if this women pretended to be an animal rescue but was in fact a puppy mill owner why is she not also being charged with defrauding the public? Impersonating a rescue site or whatever this would fall under. Pretending you are something you are not and defrauding the public can’t be legal is it???????

    Just put the sick bitch in a cell with a few leprosy sufferers and deny her any medical treatment. Better still, leave her with me so that I can “educate” her about animal welfare.

    Why the hell these people are allowed to breed more puppies when the shelters are overflowing and …many dogs are euthanized….ARREST ALL BREEDERS AND CONFISTICATE THEIR DOGS…THEN PEOPLE WILL ADOPT AND LESS DOGS WIIL BE IN THE SHELTERS….LET THIS BE A LAW AND THERE IS LESS DOGS/CATS IN SHELTERS.

  4. This why you adopt…NOT SHOP!! Breeders are only interested in money NOT the dog’s….They live.in deplorable conditions!!!!

  5. Shoot the bitch

    I agree with Mongoose Jones’s comment: This is becoming far too frequent! Who the heck is supposedly monitoring the licensing of Rescue or Shelters?
    Why are they not monitored?
    Everyone of these places were available on the web for people to see if they were accredited, and they were checked out.
    How many times do we all have to drum into peoples heads “Adopt Don’t Shop”!!! People get off your backsides and do a little home work on where your dog is coming from. Phone reputable Shelter’s (Animal Welfare or RSPCA) etc and ask the questions of what is available, see the animals, find out the Veterinary treatments, then know for sure you are taking home a healthy forever friend.
    Lock this perpetrator up for a long time, like a year for each dog’s lost life, sounds fair to me?
