26 Puppies Reportedly Covered in Feces and Imprisoned in Hot Van Without Water Deserve Justice

Target: Gurbir S. Grewal, Prosecutor for Bergen County, New Jersey

Goal: Demand that the three people who allegedly kept 26 puppies in small filthy cages inside of a van receive the maximum penalty by law.

Over two dozen puppies were allegedly confined to small feces-filled crates inside of a van. The temperature reportedly reached 90 degrees, and the puppies had no access to water. The people inside the van told authorities that they were transporting the puppies to Florida. Demand justice for these poor puppies.

Police responded to a parking lot in Garfield after they received reports of a suspicious van. Inside, officers found Jesus Gabriel Valentin Rivera, Vanessa Millan, and Elaine Ramos along with 26 English and French bulldog puppies. The puppies were reportedly confined to two feces-filled cages and a cooler and had no access to water on a 90-degree day. Per authorities, Rivera, Millan, and Ramos were attempting to sell the puppies from the back of the van.

The puppies were taken to the Bergen County Animal Shelter. Their current condition is unreported. Rivera, Millan, and Ramos were each charged with 26 counts of animal cruelty. Sign below and demand that they receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear Prosecutor Grewal,

Twenty-six puppies were allegedly confined inside of a van on a dangerously hot day. The puppies were reportedly kept in small feces-filled cages with no access to water. We demand justice for these innocent puppies.

Jesus Gabriel Valentin Rivera, Vanessa Millan, and Elaine Ramos were each charged with 26 counts of animal cruelty after police reportedly found them selling puppies out of a minivan. The English and French bulldog puppies were reportedly confined to two cages and a cooler, with 13 puppies forced into one cage together. The temperature reached a stifling 90 degrees, and the puppies reportedly had no access to water.

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

    Nature treats back now ? Monsters
    Take responsibility for your cruelty
    Take responsibility for your Being on Earth

  2. CRIMES AGAINST ANIMALS MUST BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY — We must ensure that these idiots stay away from animals & NEVER adopt again — the depraved indifference to the suffering inflicted on these vulnerable dogs is telling of cruel, unconscionable, merciless humans — they are irrational — let’s ensure these idiots NOT be allowed to adopt NOR have possession of animals ever again — PUNISHMENT & PENALTIES MUST BE SEVERE — WHY would a rational & compassionate society allow these imbeciles to get away with their neglect & indifference! — We do NOT want repeats of these cruel acts against animals EVER!

    You got these monsters dead-to-rights, so prosecute them as the criminals they are. DO NOT allow them to get away with this horror.

  4. Simon Rimmer says:

    Animal cruelty must become a death penalty crime, NOW!!!

  5. Judith Weber says:

    These people need to be exposed, embarrassed, investigated, and reported to the News media as a public interest story. These people, when convicted must be posted to an international Animal Abuse website, never to own a living creature again in this life.

    This will not go away. You better do something to make sure these criminals don’t do this again. we are at the mercy of the prosecutors to the right thing by making sure they know how to do their job correctly.
