“The scene was horrific, and it’s a miracle any animals were found alive,” stated Delaware Animal Services Chief Mark Tobin. Animal Services personnel raided the Sussex County property and reportedly found 43 dead dogs and 31 dogs and one cat in poor condition. Per animal services, the animals were covered in hair mats and extremely emaciated with no access to food or water. One dog reportedly had to be euthanized due to severe illness.

Dear Attorney General Denn,

Over 70 animals were allegedly neglected and denied necessary medical care in a shocking case of animal cruelty. Forty-four dogs died, and 31 additional animals reportedly suffered with severe illness related to starvation and neglect. Demand justice for these innocent animals.

The Brandywine Valley SPCA posted shocking photos of the dogs rescued from this Sussex County property. The dogs appeared to be covered in hair mats and were reportedly severely emaciated. Per Delaware Animal Services, a total of 74 dogs and one cat were kept in deplorable conditions and denied access to food, water, and medical care. Forty-three dogs were reportedly found dead on site, and one dog had to be euthanized due to severe illness. The surviving animals are facing long and painful recoveries. Officials have not released the names of the suspects, but charges are forthcoming.

This horrific neglect must be punished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

  1. This is down right cruel and heartless. Monsters like that don’t deserve jail/prison time, don’t deserve 3 meals a day, shelters or a bed to sleep in. Throw their asses in a lion’s or bear den. This animal abuse is getting way out of control and these monsters are not being punished hard enough. These innocent loving affectionate God’s creatures need justice.

  2. No words for this massive injustice of life!! I can not find the words to express my total disdain for such a grizzly ending for an animal that longs for love. This is such a sad affair. My broken heart cries for all of those poor, poor souls.

  3. Instigation of the death penalty is essential for all animal abusers.I am ready,willing and able to help undertake this!

      If I was a judge, I would sentence thier sorry asses to confinement in a cage in a testing lab. At least that way they can be of some use. And the results would actually be of some use to developing products suitabloe for human use. I really like this idea.

  4. The scum that enforced such inhumane conditions on these poor animals deserve to suffer the same horrific conditions. Should never be let anywhere near another living thing again.

  5. why aren’t they revealing names these scumbags should be named and punished to the fullest in fact they should be shot they have no feelings but cruelty so do away with them they are of no use on this earth and eye for an eye I say
