Justice for 14 Dogs and One Cat Allegedly Kept in Deplorable Conditions

Target: John McCormick, County Attorney, Coos County, New Hampshire

Goal: Punish breeders accused of denying dogs food, water, and necessary veterinary care.

A couple is facing 44 misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals after investigators uncovered a breeding operation that allegedly kept several animals in deplorable conditions. Fourteen dogs and one cat were removed from the home of John Dumas and Pamela Mansulla, who operated a breeding page on Facebook.

Authorities were first alerted to the situation because of a dog named Carmella, who had reportedly had three owners before being returned to the breeders. Carmella had extensive skin and eye problems, with oozing, red sores on her body and overgrown nails. After officials arrived at the home to perform a welfare check on her and saw that she was in bad shape, they obtained a warrant for the seizure of Carmella and the inspection of Mansulla’s other animals.

Per reports, the other dogs were thin, and had health problems that include skin and eye problems, injured paws, long nails, missing fur, and ear infections. Their coats were caked with feces and urine and several carried parasites such as roundworms and whipworms. Rescuers say that the animals had no food or water left for them, with the exception of one puppy that had a little bit of food.

This type of treatment of animals is unacceptable, particularly from “breeders” who sell their dogs for $1,500. In order to ensure that no more animals are subjected to this treatment, it’s important that these breeders are properly punished for any cruelty they are found guilty of. Sign below to ask the prosecutor to seek the maximum possible penalty in this case.


Dear Mr. Frasier,

A couple is facing 44 counts of animal cruelty for allegedly keeping several dogs in deplorable conditions, denying them food, water, and much-needed veterinary care. The dogs were found with various health issues, including skin and eye problems, injured paws, long nails, missing fur, and ear infections. Their fur was reportedly full of feces and urine, and they carried parasites such as roundworms and whipworms.

In order to ensure that no more animals are subjected to this alleged for-profit neglect, the people responsible must be punished. We, the undersigned, ask that you seek the maximum possible penalty for this couple, if they are found guilty.

  1. 1st of all when charged with animal cruelty or neglect they are suppose to remove all animals they did not do that in this case they left over 20 animals still in the home.
    2nd thing why isn’t there any updates about this case?
    This case started with Carmella we got her on dec 4 2016 from Samantha brooks she was in really bad shape we took her to the vets on dec 5 2016 .Vets said if we waited another day she could of died she had a very high temp 126 yeast infection ear & eye infection under weight open wounds ..we called the local pd to file charges against Samantha brooks the cop is friends with this individual and decided to press charges against us.. She didn’t even have a seizure warrant to remove our animals.. civil/constitutional right where violated.. Tell me this why less than 12 hours after the animal where seized a veterinarian examined the dogs and said they are not been abused or neglected the cop then begged this veterinarian to lie and she refused to lie. When the shelter found out she refused to lie they fired her as an on call vet ..then waited 7 days later to have another vet exam the animals and the second vet said they are all thin and in poor condition . Dogs where seized on march 25 2017 7pm they finally was done around 2am.by the way they kicked us out our home during this time. The veterinarian examined the animals at 11am on march 26 2017 .SO wrap your minds around that and think who really neglected these animals from march 26 2016- april 3 2016..dogs went from ideal weight in good condition/health to thin and in bad shape with in a week of been in the shelters care. One of the dogs got a serious knee injury while been in the shelters care and required knee surgery..Why don’t you question the shelter on what they did with the Shepherd and how they got her out our home ..i’ll tell you because I seen the police body cam they tazed her multiple times where at one point you can hear someone saying rose wake up its ok ..They killed this dog more than one time as far as I know they put her to sleep.. they deleted all her video’s and pictures of there face book page of her. The truth will come out and all our proof and evidence we have will be put on social media from depositions of both vets to court records and recordings/transcripts.. we will post everything

    Until there are no longer unloved animals roaming the streets and locked up in shelters, ALL breeders and puppy mills ought to cease to exist! Period!
