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.

PETITION LETTER:

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.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    OMG what I would give to get this piece of shit in a room, just the two of us. I’d make sure the bitch regretted her actions.

  5. She should go to jail! This is a crime!

  6. Nancy Lowe says:

    Throw her in jail and let her eat the roaches. She needs to be off the streets and out of society.

  7. She needs to go to jail for at least 10 years no parole.

  8. Susan Budde says:

    Her name is out there – someone needs to kill this bitch. People who cause this kind of suffering to others are the worst kind of menace to civilization. They need to be killed immediately after they are convicted. They have got to be removed from the planet!!!

  9. THE SAME TREATMENT TO THIS FEMALE SHIT HUMAN

  10. Put her in a VERY deep small hole in the ground so she has nowhere to shit,,, then when she’s hungry enough she’ll start eating that & then she can start eating her own hands & feet,,, fuck i would love to watch that!!!! don’t forget the popcorn!!!!

    THAT IS WHAT SHE DESERVES

    SHE SHOULD GET MORE THAN JAIL TIME AND A FEW FINES

    AND ABSOLUTELY NEVER EVER BE ALLOWED TO HAVE ANOTHER ANIMAL !!!!

  19. I would like to adopt her. I have been rescuing pit bulls for my whole adult life. I’m fifty now. Kim
