Starving Puppy Abandoned in Box Along Road Deserves Justice

Target: Allan H. Kittleman, State’s Attorney for Howard County, Maryland

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the person who starved a puppy and abandoned him in a plastic storage container.

A puppy was abandoned in a plastic storage container by the side of the road. He was malnourished and had no access to food or water. Demand justice for this innocent puppy.

“What’s it take to give an animal some water? We don’t live in a war zone here,” stated Jill Eberhart, a Columbia resident. She called 911 after finding the brindle pit bull puppy by the side of the road. The container was covered in holes, to help the puppy breathe, but it was filled with the puppy’s feces and urine. Veterinarians reported that the poor animal was extremely malnourished and had open wounds and missing fur.

The puppy was taken to an emergency clinic and is expected to make a full recovery. The person responsible is still at large. Sign below and demand that this person receive the maximum penalty by law, if found and convicted.


Dear State’s Attorney Kittleman,

A 10-week-old puppy was left in a plastic storage container by the side of the road. The puppy was dangerously malnourished and near death. We demand justice for this innocent puppy.

Shocking photos showed the puppy lying inside of the storage container, surrounded by his own feces and urine. Too weak to even stand up, the puppy was in desperate need of water and food. If not for the help of Eberhart, it is likely that the puppy would not have survived.

This horrific cruelty cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case when the perpetrator is found.

  1. This serves as a GENTLE REMINDER for HUMANS to BE KIND, THINK RIGHT and DO GOOD!!! Always REMEMBER that GOD IS WATCHING and that KARMA does exist as What Goes Around Comes Around!!! Blessings to ALL THOSE KIND SOULS who are ALWAYS there to SUPPORT and to VOICE for all the voiceless, helpless ANIMALS that were created for us to respect, to love, to care and to protect them and NOT otherwise!!! And prayers to all those poor souls that were tortured and murdered ALIVE so that their souls will rest in peace and that they will not be re-born as animals again!!! Let there be LOVE and PEACE on earth so that every living being can live peacefully thus happily!!! PLEASE LOVE ALL ANIMALS and EVERY LIVING BEING; and you will be blessed abundantly!!!

  2. Someone should et this scum and lock them in a cold and damp room and leave them to die. Looks like there was a cat in the box as well. I hope tis filth is caught and dealt with as if it had been done to a child after all there is no difference.

  3. Let’s be realistic. This is a pit pup, who was probably being sold by and to some unscrupulous people who would have otherwise done harm to it e.g. involved him in dog fight in some way, shape or form. For whatever reason, the sale didn’t take place and the pup was left abandoned. Thank god that is was discovered – although I am curious to know more about how that came to be….

  4. Why, why, why – I’m glad the poor pup with recover. As for the POS – please find and prosecute!

  5. Kathy Khoshfahm says:

    Allan – This incident is an example of animal cruelty at its finest. The Animal Kingdom are citizens of this Earth who deserve our respect and protection. They have just as much a right as we do to live their lives on this planet, free from torture and murder at the hands of humans. Although the perpetrator of this crime will probably never be found, I implore you to use your position and power to prosecute animal cruelty cases to the fullest extent possible. Show the world that the state of Maryland will not tolerate crimes against innocent animals. Please!

  6. Please just bring the animal to the Animal Rescue. They are kind and only euthanize animals as a last resort. They feed and water and provide a secure place for puppies and kittens. Not to mention the opportunity to find a forever home! PLEASE REMEMBER THIS!!!

    She just couldn’t be parsed. Prosecute the bitch.NO EXCUSE !


  8. Simon Rimmer says:

    Animal abuse and cruelty must become a death penalty crime.

  9. Spaying or neutering your dog or cat is a more humane alternative than cruelly dumping unwanted offspring.

    If you’re not prepared to properly care for your animal companion (including spay/neuter) then you should seriously look at the reasons why you’re getting one.

    Living hell to all animal abusers everywhere.
