Demand Maximum Penalty for Man Who Tortured and Killed Puppy

Target: Redwood City Police Department Chief of Police JR Gamez

Goal: Demand maximum penalty for man arrested for severely torturing and then killing the family’s puppy in front of his young daughter

A 31-year-old California man was arrested after he reportedly stuffed his family’s four-month-old puppy in a duffel bag and tossed it into a dumpster. Prior to the dog’s murder, the man allegedly kicked and punched the terrier-mix puppy named “Lucky.” After the untrained puppy had an accident inside the home, prosecutors say the man fed Lucky psychiatric drugs and sprayed household cleaners in his eyes. Lucky was also placed inside a duffel bag that was then hung on the shower head, leaving the poor, defenseless puppy to whimper for hours on end.

As if this severe animal abuse weren’t repugnant enough, the man performed these disgusting, inhumane acts in front of his four-year-old daughter, who soon began emulating the sadistic behaviors of her heartless father.

By signing this petition, you will be urging the local police department to do everything in its power to ensure this man receives the maximum punishment for his heinous crimes against an innocent animal. No animal should have to endure the month-long torture that Lucky experienced.


Dear Police Chief Gamez,

I was appalled and disgusted to learn of the severe abuse that Mr. Alan Velete inflicted upon his family’s four-month-old puppy, Lucky. The young animal was brutally tortured for simply relieving itself inside the man’s home, a common occurrence for a young, untrained dog.

As unwarranted retribution against the animal, Mr. Velete allegedly kicked and punched Lucky. He also fed Lucky psychiatric drugs, sprayed household cleaners in his eyes, and placed him inside a duffel bag that was then hung on the shower head, where Lucky was left whimpering for hours. Mr. Velete’s four-year-old daughter was witness to these disgusting acts and soon began emulating her father’s sadistic treatment of this innocent creature. After a month of this abuse, the defendant reportedly stuffed Lucky into a duffel bag and tossed him into a trash can where he most likely suffocated to death.

I urge you to do everything in your power to ensure that this man receives the maximum punishment for his inhumane and sadistic crimes against animals. No animal should have to endure the month-long torture that Lucky experienced, and no child should be forced to bear witness to such cruel behavior.

  1. If he can treat an animal like this he can go on to treat people in the same cruel way (if he doesn’t already) Maximum punishments must be given – treating animals like this is not exceptable to a sane human-being.

    These people are a threat to society, not to mention children and defenceless animals! Best to re-educate both the 4 yr old
