Justice for Puppy Reportedly Locked in Crate Until She Starved to Death

Target: Stephen Wagstaffe, District Attorney of San Mateo, California

Goal: Issue harsher sentence for woman who allegedly locked puppy in crate until she starved to death.

A 3-month-old Chihuahua, named Baby, was reportedly locked inside a crate until she starved to death and was found by two children. The owner, 26-year-old Janice Mathis, reportedly brought the puppy’s emaciated carcass, which was covered in urine and feces, to the Humane Society for disposal. From  there, a necropsy was done, and the results showed that Baby starved to death.

Unfortunately, Mathis was only given probation, some fines, and a single day in jail. This measly sentence does not bring justice to the poor puppy who suffered an agonizing death. Please sign this petition to demand a harsher punishment for this cruel woman.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Wagstaffe,

A puppy was reportedly locked up inside a crate and left to starve to death. Two children found the dead puppy’s body, said officials. They also said that the owner brought the puppy’s dead, emaciated carcass to the humane society for disposal. The carcass was reportedly covered in urine and feces. A necropsy showed that the puppy died of starvation.

Unfortunately, the owner, who officials say admitted to being the sole provider of the puppy, was let off with probation and a single day served in jail. We, the undersigned, are calling on you to correct this injustice. Please see to it that this woman receive a harsher sentence.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Why acquire a dog (or any animal) if you do not care for it???

  2. Margaret Melnick says:

    What the hell is wrong with the courts?

  3. This woman needs to be spayed, if not put down. So inept and lazy and entitled that she brought the dog she starved to death to someone else to dispose of. That she could walk around this imprisoned innocent animal while it SLOWLY starved to death horrifies me beyond measure..

  4. I just cannot comprehend how anybody in their right mind can abuse an animal and just let them starve to death. that is an act of undefined cruelty! how would they like it if someone didn’t feed them until they starved it’s awful!

  5. Janice Mathis needs to be beaten till almost dead!!!! I volunteer!!!

  6. Lock this POS in a cell and let her suffer the same way this sweet puppy did. Until judges start issuing severe punishment, animals will suffer and die!!!

  7. RIP Puppy. 1 DAY IS A F’ING JOKE .. THIS BITCH NEEDS TO BE LOCKED UP IN A CRATE AND STARVED SEE HOW SHE LIKES IT .. THE LAW NEEDS TO CHANGE SO PEOPLE THINK TWICE ABOUT ABUSING DOGS .. THE FACT SHE KNEW IT WAS THERE AND WALKED AROUND IT MADE HER A HEINOUS PSYCHO WHO NEEDS PUTTING DOWN ..
