Dog Found Starving in ‘House of Horrors’ Deserves Justice

Target: Bruce Colton, State’s Attorney for St. Lucie County, Florida

Goal: Demand that the person accused of starving and denying medical care to a dog named Nikki, leading to the amputation of Nikki’s leg, faces the maximum penalty if found guilty.

A dog named Nikki was allegedly denied medical care and starved nearly to death. She was reportedly covered in sores and missing a paw when found by police. Demand that justice is served for innocent Nikki.

“It was obviously just a house of horrors knowing that she wasn’t provided food, water, basic necessities that she needed,” stated David Lynch, the spokesman for the Humane Society of St. Lucie County. Per veterinarians, the pit mix was starved to the point where she only weighed 20 pounds and had no body fat. Her leg will have to be amputated because one of her paws was reportedly only a stub, which made it difficult for her to walk.

The dog was taken to the Humane Society of St. Lucie and given medical care. The dog’s owner, was charged with animal cruelty. Sign below and demand that Hedgepeth receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear State’s Attorney Colton,

A dog named Nikki was reportedly starved and neglected nearly to the point of death. The dog was reportedly so emaciated that her ribs showed through her skin and sores covered most of her body. We demand that justice is served for this innocent dog.

“Every day must have been a complete struggle for her just to survive,” stated Lynch. Per reports, the dog’s back paw was only a stub and infected. Veterinarians aren’t sure how her paw got to be that way or how long she had to suffer with the painful deformity.

This horrific abuse cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case, if the owner is found guilty of this tragic abuse.

  5. Am I correct to think that it’s the abused humans who want pets for love and affection, but end up taking their hate out on their pets? There’s too much of this abuse…makes me so upset.

  6. Gloria Harman says:

    This POS should be starved to death. No animal should be treated this way. They should have taken it to a shelter if they didn’t want to take care of it. I pray there is an extremely monstrous place in hell for people like this.

  7. Carolyn Long says:

    So sick of animal abuse cases. What is wrong with all of these people? If you’re not going to take care of animals don’t get them!

  8. Rebecca Grant says:

    Please let us know what happens to Nikki. I rescued a dog similar to her who was also severely abused. She is “coming along” but it a very slow process. Please let us know how Nikki is doing, she looks very, very sad.

  9. May he rot in hell for what they did to Nikki.

  10. Marie Schultz says:

    I wish we could treat people like this how they treat their animals. Cut her foot off and let them starve in a cage as well. This is bullshit.
