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.

    Baha’i Writings ~ “To the blessed animals, however, the utmost kindness should be exercised: the more the better it will be. Man is generally sinful and the animal is innocent. Educate the children in their infancy in such a way that they may become exceedingly kind and merciful to the animals… The universe of God is a wonderful theatre upon the stage of which every created thing plays its part.”
    Hadith No. 557 ~ ”O Allah’s Apostle! Is there a reward for us in serving the animals? He replied: Yes, there is a reward for serving any animate.”
    Proverbs 12.10 ~ A righteous man has regard for the life of his animals.
    Psalm 34:16 ~ The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. God created all the animals
    Psalm 50:10 ~God cares for the animals. “Jesus said: ‘are not the five sparrows sold for two copper coins and not one of them is forgotten before God.

    Please take this crime seriously. Animals will alert us to a lot of dysfunction if we let them.

  3. Dear Mr. Paul Frasier, District Attorney, Coos County, New Hampshire
    You must punish the breeders accused of denying dogs food, water, and necessary veterinary care.
    You must also revolk any license permanetly that they may have to operate a kennel.
    And John Dumas and Pamela Mansulla must never be allowed to have any kind of animal for rest of their lives.
    They obviously have no compassion or empathy towards anything therefore they are cruel horrible people.
    Please do your job by making these despicable people see that the country is watching what happens to them and the country wants justice for all 15 of these sweet helpless, voiceless little beings.
    Love and mercy to all the animals of the world.

    I hope our elected and appointed authorities start taking animal cruelty seriously. Turning a blind eye to this crime makes you just as bad.

    I pray for the day we have no more puppy mills and kitten factories. They breed nothing but pain and death.

  6. Shut this operation down now!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Margaret Melnick says:

    I also hope these people are never allowed to own or be around animals for the rest of their lives. They should be forced to pay for any medical services these animals require. I would also give them a very hefty fine which should go to help abused and neglected animals. Of course I would also throw them in jail for as long as the law allows. When I got finished with them they wouldn’t have a pot to pee in or a window to throw it out.

  8. Paul Frasier says:

    Please note this is a case in New Hampshire. The Paul Frasier being referred to is the DA in Coos County, Oregon. He has no jurisdiction over the case.

    The petition should be addressed to the prosecutor in Coos County, New Hampshire.

    Please see that justice is served for these poor animals.
