Dog Sexually Assaulted With Broom Handle Deserves Justice

Target: Theophani Stamos, Commonwealth Attorney for Arlington County, Virginia

Goal: Demand that the person who sexually assaulted a dog with a broom handle receive the maximum penalty under law.

A dog suffered horrifically after she was sexually assaulted with a broom handle. A piece of the broom handle become lodged inside of her, causing a serious infection. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

“It’s not something I’ve ever seen before in several years of doing this kind of work. I’ve never seen anything like this,” stated Mark Goodhart, the adoption center director at Homeward Trails Animal Rescue. Huggles, a beagle and basset hound mix, was brought into the rescue with what appeared to be a uterine infection. She was spayed and started on antibiotics, but continued to bleed. X-rays revealed a piece of a broom handle lodged inside of her, left there following a violent sexual assault.

Veterinarians removed the broom handle and Huggles is expected to make a full recovery. Homeward Trails and Animal Control filed an official report, hoping to find and prosecute the person responsible. Sign below and demand that the person responsible receive the maximum penalty under law.


Dear Commonwealth Attorney Stamos,

A dog was sexually assaulted with a broom handle, leaving her traumatized. The dog suffered a serious uterine infection and could have died. We demand justice for this poor dog.

“If this person would do this to a dog… you’ve got a very serious person on your hands that I’m sure is evolving into something much more sinister than just an animal,” stated Shelly de Souza, Huggles’ foster owner. Huggles suffered debilitating pain from the resulting infection and uncontrollable bleeding. She nearly bled out before veterinarians found the broken boom handle lodged inside of her body.

This horrific abuse cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
