Prevent Animal Abuse: Demand Cameras in Pet Care Facilities

Target: John Kasich, Governor of Ohio

Goal: Require cameras in all rooms of pet care facilities to combat animal cruelty.

A young pit bull in Ohio named Leo was allegedly kicked and abused by a staff member at the doggie daycare facility where he was staying while his owner was on vacation. The facility, the Tails R Waggin’ care center in  Tallmadge, Ohio, has cameras in certain areas, allowing Leo’s owner Mike LaSalvia to check in on his dog via video. However, some rooms in the center do not have cameras, including the ‘time out’ room that Leo was allegedly kicked into.

The staff member accused of mistreating Leo, Amy Beach, allegedly pulled on his collar, stamped on his head, and kicked him into the time out room, where she was alone with him off-camera. Beach says she was stopping a fight and that she was worried that this “aggressive pit bull breed” posed a threat, but leading up to the incident, the last thing owner Mike saw on camera was Leo happily being brought to play with the other dog, his tail wagging. This type of mistreatment is preventable — animals should never be taken off-camera in pet care facilities. Sign below to demand that “Little Leo’s Law” be put into action, and that cameras become mandatory in all rooms, hallways, and outdoor areas of these facilities.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Governor Kasich,

Incidents of animal cruelty in pet care facilities are preventable and must not be allowed to continue. These animals are innocent creatures, and their families are trusting and paying pet care centers to do what is best for them. These facilities must be held accountable, and owners must be able to monitor the treatment of their pets.

After the alleged abuse of Ohio pit bull Leo by a care center in Tallmadge, Ohio, the need for cameras in every area of these centers that the animals pass through is undeniable. Leo was allegedly stomped on and kicked by a staff member into a room where he was then left alone with her, off-camera. This type of cruelty cannot be allowed to stand. I urge you to enforce “Little Leo’s Law” and require cameras in all rooms, hallways, and outdoor areas of pet care facilities.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    If someone kicked me and stamped on my head, I’d also become an “aggressive ….. breed” and pose a threat to humans.

  2. THAT IS WHAT COWARDS DO,THEY TAKE CHILDREN AND/OR ANIMALS THAT ARE LEFT IN THEIR CARE OUT OF CAMERA’S VIEW AND START ABUSING VICTIMS.SHE SHOULD BE KICKED AND STOMPED ON!

    The sadistic and callous staff member Amy Beach, must be sacked and jailed. Better still kill the animal torturing fuck. This monster then won’t be able to torture another defenceless and innocent sentient being. How many innocent and defenceless animnals has this monster tortured?

  5. Ashame it don’t kill her. This is why animals attack to defend themselves but when they bite they are put down and this is not right for the animals. People that abuse should be put down same as a murderer . These animal abusers should not be near animals . Laws need to change.

  6. Don’t allow her to own or work with animals or children ever again in her life. That will hurt emotionally and financially when that is on her work record. Animal abuse should be made a felony!

    I hope she was fired and I hope a nice big picture of her face was on the front page of your local newspaper with a detailed article on what she did.
