Fifty-Five Animals With Open Wounds, Flea Infestations and Living in Feces Deserve Justice

Target: Jack Campbell, State Attorney, 2nd Judicial Curcuit, Florida

Goal: Seek the maximum possible penalty against those accused of letting a young child and 55 animals live in filthy and unsafe conditions.

Four people have been arrested in connection with a raid that removed 55 animals, including dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, and chickens, from what investigators have called overcrowded and squalid conditions. The animals reportedly suffered an array of medical conditions, including parasites, open wounds, skin diseases, and flea infestation. Due to the fact that a child was also forced to live in the home, one woman is also facing a felony charge of child neglect. The child was also removed from the home.

According to American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals investigators, who helped the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office remove the animals from the home, several dogs were chained outside without water or shelter. Chickens were found in tiny, cramped cages surrounded by feces and trash. The animals are being cared for at the Escambia County Animal Services located in Pensacola, Florida, which will help to find homes for the animals once they receive much-needed medical care and treatment.

According to Adam Leath, Southeast regional director of ASPCA Field Investigations and Response, “It’s apparent that these animal victims have been living in deplorable conditions for quite some time.”

This type of treatment toward not only these animals, but an 11-year-old girl, is absolutely disgusting. In order to save more animals from this treatment, it’s imperative that authorities take this case seriously. Sign the petition below to ask the prosecutor to seek the maximum possible penalties for anyone convicted in this case.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Campbell,

An 11-year-old girl and 55 animals were recently removed from a home where they were allegedly forced to live in filthy and overcrowded conditions. The animals, including dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and chickens, suffered from parasites, open wounds, skin diseases, and flea infestation. Several dogs were chained outside without water or shelter, while chickens were found in tiny, cramped cages surrounded by feces and trash.

This is absolutely unacceptable, and in order to prevent more animals from suffering in similar situations, the state must take a hard stance against the accused. We, the undersigned, ask you to seek the harshest possible penalty for anyone found guilty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Animal cruelty must become a death penalty crime, time to clean up the human garbage in the world
