Dogs Reportedly Left to Die in Abandoned House Deserve Justice

Target: Timothy J. Cruz, District Attorney for Plymouth County, Massachusetts

Goal: Demand that the man who allegedly abandoned two malnourished dogs without access to food or water receives the maximum penalty by law.

Two dogs suffered and nearly died when they were allegedly starved and abandoned. The suspect reportedly left the malnourished dogs behind to die after he fell on hard times and was unable to feed them. Demand justice for these poor dogs.

“It broke my heart. The poor dogs were so happy to see somebody which made me believe they were just left there,” stated Susan Sweeney of Eversource. Sweeney arrived at Tyrone Mendes’ residence to shut off the utilities and reportedly found the two dogs, named Bentley and Ace, in poor condition. Bentley was so emaciated that his bones showed through his skin, police stated, and feces and urine filled the entire house. Per rescuers, both Bentley and Ace suffered from malnourishment and showed signs of extreme stress and anxiety.

The Animal Rescue League of Boston took custody of Bentley and Ace and they are slowly recovering. Mendes has been charged with animal cruelty. Sign below and demand that Mendes receives the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney Cruz,

Two dogs were allegedly starved and left to die in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The suspect reportedly moved out and left the malnourished dogs behind without access to food or water. We demand justice for these innocent dogs.

Rochester police charged Tyrone Mendes with animal cruelty after he allegedly starved and abandoned the two dogs. Bentley and Ace, a pit bull and a mastiff, were reportedly dangerously malnourished and lived in their own feces and urine. Bentley weighed only 20 pounds at the time of his rescue, police stated, and his bones showed through his skin. Per rescuers, the dogs also showed signs of stress and anxiety. Bentley and Ace are slowly recovering and will be re-homed soon. Mendes will answer for his charges at a later date.

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

    I’d love to starve Tyrone Mendes until ALL of his ribs showed & lock him in a room with NO toilet & NO running water! If anyone knows this cretin, tell him animal lovers are on the lookout for him & he’d better hope we don’t find him!!!

  2. The best lesson would be to do the same to him as he did to the dogs!

  3. Tyrone Mendes the suffering that you inflicted on these innocents will return to you threefold. karma is a bitch you scum.

  4. RESPECT pour tous les animaux. STOP à la MALTRAITANCE.

  5. do the same to him what he did to these poor dogs what kind of creature is this that would do this punish him to the fullest

  6. Derinda Nilsson says:

    Let’s just slap the shit out this bastard. I want to see him suffer the same way these poor dogs suffered. There isn’t punishment enough for this creep. Burn in hell asshole.

  7. If he couldn’t afford to feed them – why didn’t he surrender them to a reputable no kill rescue society??? – to leave them to starve and die makes me sick. Makes me wonder why neighbors never intervene or hear a dog in distress and try and help it – typical of our society lately

  8. Felony charge times however many dogs plus 10 years for just being an asshole. May these dogs come to haunt u forever No good piece of shit.

  9. Stephanie Geyser says:

    Should be an open and shut case – it’s either the homeowner or the tenant (who should be known to the landowner).

  10. This guy is probably a big fat slob. He deserves to starve to death. I’m glad the dogs were rescued and are recovering. May they go to a good loving home.

  11. Agree all above HAVENT THEY HEARD OF SHELTERS OR GIVE TO GOOD HOMES. NO F**KEN EXCUSE catch and death penalty for this bastards.

  12. CRIMES AGAINST ANIMALS MUST BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY – throw Tyrone Mendes in prison – Ensure this imbecile stay away from animals FOREVER – remember, Mendes could’ve, at the vest least, TOLD SOMEONE about dogs to be abandoned — the depraved abuse inflicted on vulnerable doggies Bentley & Ace is telling of an unconscionable, insane, depravedly indifferent human – HUGE THANK YOU to Susan Sweeney of EVERSOURCE for saving their lives — let’s get some STIFF LAWS on the books and ENFORCE them — this Monster will repeat his brutality unless you STOP him NOW – PUNISHMENTS & PENALTIES MUST BE SEVERE – We NEVER want repeats of these crimes.
