Dogs Infected With Fleas, Lyme Disease and Tape Worms With No Access to Water Deserve Justice

Target: Stephen A. Zappala Jr., District Attorney for Allegheny County, Pennsylvania

Goal: Demand that the people who allegedly neglected fifteen dogs and multiple smaller animals receive the maximum penalty by law.

Fifteen dogs and several smaller animals were allegedly neglected and denied necessary medical care in a shocking case of animal cruelty. Many of the dogs were reportedly too weak to stand and one had a neck wound due to an embedded collar. We must demand justice for these innocent animals.

Police raided the home belonging to Robert and Hope Sia after they received a complaint of dogs living in deplorable conditions. Inside the home, police reportedly found 15 dogs, two snakes, a bearded dragon, a ferret and a hedgehog, all in various stages of neglect. Per the humane officer, the dogs suffered from flea infestation, Lyme disease, tape worms, skin infections, and one was pregnant. The dogs were reportedly stuffed into crates so small that they were unable to stand and they had no access to water.

The animals were taken to the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter for treatment. Robert and Hope Sia have each been charged with three misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals and 17 misdemeanor counts of neglect of animals. Sign below and demand that Robert and Hope Sia receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Zappala,

Fifteen dogs and five smaller animals were allegedly kept in deplorable conditions in a shocking case of animal cruelty. A large tumor reportedly grew untreated on one dog’s leg and another had a neck wound due to an embedded collar. We demand justice for these poor animals.

Police charged Robert and Hope Sia with three counts of cruelty to animals and 17 counts of neglect to animals after raiding their Scott Township home. Per authorities, the dogs suffered from multiple ailments including Lyme disease, flea infestation, tape worms, and skin infections. One of the dogs was reportedly pregnant and several were stuffed into crates so small that they could not stand. Two snakes, a bearded dragon, a ferret, and a hedgehog were also found in the home.

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

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Kill the both of these psychopathic depraved pea size brain monsters Robert and Hope Sia for their deliberate animal torture and suffering that these precious and innocent sentient beings endured.

    Eradicate this animal torturing filth from our planet.

  2. What is wrong with people like this ?? You don’t need a high IQ to know that this is mistreatment. I have no sympathy for anyone who mistreats animals in this way.
