Woman Accused of Starving Dog With Untreated Stomach Tumor Must be Punished

Target: D. Andrew Wilson, Prosecutor for Clark County, Ohio

Goal: Demand that the woman who allegedly starved, neglected, and denied her dogs needed veterinary care receive the maximum penalty by law.

Two dogs became seriously ill after they were allegedly denied food and veterinary care. The dogs reportedly suffered from malnutrition, and one had a large untreated mass. Demand justice for these innocent dogs.

The Clark County dog warden was called to Rhonda Raye Nicholson’s home after she received reports of dogs living in poor conditions. Two emaciated dogs were found inside of the home, the warden stated, and one weighed only half of her healthy weight. Mya, a bulldog, reportedly had a large bloody mass growing on her stomach, and Naughty Boy, also a bulldog, reportedly suffered with visual impairment due to multiple untreated medical conditions. Veterinarians also diagnosed Naughty Boy with a severe ear infection and fleas.

Rescuers took Mya and Naughty Boy to Northside Veterinary Clinic for treatment. The warden charged Nicholson with animal cruelty. The charges carry a penalty of up to 90 days in jail. Sign below and demand that Nicholson receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear Prosecutor Wilson,

Two dogs suffered when they were allegedly starved and denied desperately needed medical care. The dogs were reportedly severely underweight, and each had a serious untreated illness. We demand justice for these innocent dogs.

The Clark County Warden charged Rhonda Raye Nicholson with animal cruelty after she allegedly starved and neglected her two bulldogs, Mya and Naughty Boy. Mya reportedly had a large bloody mass growing on her stomach, and she weighed only half of her healthy weight. Naughty Boy suffered visual impairment due to untreated medical conditions, the warden stated, and he also had a severe ear infection. The dogs were taken to Northside Veterinary Clinic for treatment. Nicholson could face up to 90 days in jail, if convicted.

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

If you DO have a GRATEFUL heart for being born as a HUMAN, please STOP Animal Abuse, Animal Cruelty, Animal Exploitation, Animal Hunt, Animal Laboratory Test, Animal Mistreatment, Animal Murder, Animal Slaughter, et cetera!!! HUMANS were one of God’s Creations and HUMANS were created to help TAKE CARE of God’s VOICELESS & HELPLESS creatures with kindness, love, care & protection!!! It saddens me SO MUCH to learn from the HEART-BREAKING petitions that there are many UNGRATEFUL humans who are not only UNAPPRECIATIVE for what they already have, yet, they can bring themselves to DESTROY God’s VOICELESS & HELPLESS creatures MERCILESSLY!!! Its NEVER too late to REPENT for the WRONG doings and ATONE for the SINs & KARMAs created by HELPING, SAVING and PROTECTING our VOICELESS & HELPLESS animal friends in EVERY way possible and SUPPORTING good causes!!!

    P/S: WHO created HUMANS and all living beings???!!! WHAT makes YOU think that you were created to KILL God’s Creations???!!! For EVERY animal ABUSED and/or MURDERED, you have to PAY BACK in your NEXT life and in THIS life, WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND to you and/or your loved ones, therefore, be WISE and think TWICE before harming and/or killing an INNOCENT, VOICELESS & HELPLESS animal and please be reminded that God is WATCHING all of us!!!

  2. This heartless must Luck her in a room and leave her without food for about 2 months

  3. She should be starved to death in jail let her rott and see what its like…

    90 days in jail? What on earth is the point of that. This bitch knew exactly what she was doing and chose not to stop the pain and suffering of her dogs. She’s not fit to be near any animals so must never be allowed to own them in the future. Until the law is strengthened, people like her are going to continue causing misery to animals. Make the punishment fit the crime and hit her hard.

  5. OK, so lock this “thing” up for 90 days (at least) with no food or water. Ignore/deny any requests for medical attention. Isn’t animal abuse a felony in all 50 states now? 90 days in jail is not a punishment for a felony!!

  6. Katherine says:

    I simply cannot comprehend as to why petitions have to be signed to do what is right * We need to stand up & protect the helpless * People who are capable of such Evil Hateful acts * Let us not even think that there Hate/Evil acts stop there * At only hurting our precious helpless Animals * There cruelty extends outside that * We need to rid of people with such hate & evil inside of them * Do the harshest punishment possible & Lets wake up here * Stronger laws & punishments need to be made NOW, NOW, NOW, NOW, NOW . . . . . There are people in our society that have absolutely forfitted there right to live among us because of there own actions & there deciept

  7. Nadine brundage says:

    Poor innocent dogs had to suffer because this person failed them. She’s either mentally deranged or an idiot. She should never be allowed to own any animal.

  8. Reading this petition and seeing she may only get 90 days if convicted makes my blood boil. THAT ISN’T JUSTICE for how these 2 dogs Mya & Naughty Boy suffered and will still suffer after they receive treatment for their poor conditions. This woman did exactly what she wanted to do and choose to mistreat, starve, deny veterinary care, food & water to both dogs. This just didn’t happen over night. They suffered quite a while before someone stepped up and called for help. NO 90 Days WILL NOT CUT IT. How about the least 1 year and fines. Don’t forget to put her name on the animals abuse list so she will never own another dog/animal ever again. We all speak for Mya and Naughty Boy since they can’t SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES nor can they FIGHT Rhonda Raye Nicholson on an equal level. Punish her and not with 90 days. That’s not enough. Those dogs suffered for more than 90 days!!

  9. Stomach ulcers maybe due to gluten/GMO so grain free food may help heal the gut lining…stomach/intestines. People/pets need grain free food to be well.

  10. Rhonda Raye Nicholson should be sent to a maximum security prison for at least one year … though she deserves more time!

  11. Jean Sleigh says:

    D. Andrew Wilson, Prosecutor for Clark County, Ohio… please give this person more than 90 days in prison AND please deny them future ownership of any kind of animal, whether pet or not. Thank you. JeanS.

  12. Simon Rimmer says:

    Animal cruelty must become a death penalty crime. This pos needs to be starved to death. Sick of scumbag humans.

  13. Agree all comments abuse her mole Countries need to deal with animal abuse have a heart.


  15. 90 days is a complete joke…. mr prosecutor how do we raise the punishment to 12 months minimum and 500 community service hrs, her right revoked to ever own an animal ever again, and I believe animal abusers shud have to pay for the medical treatment n care of the animals they torture in full.

  16. What !!! Only 90 days for mistreating her pets !!

    Why have them if you are not going to care for them.

  17. Denise Devereux says:

    We all know the law will do little to punish or deter such vile cruelty and crime so until such time as congress takes animal abuse, torture and murder seriously then MORALLY STREET JUSTICE MUST PREVAIL! Perpetrator, Rhonda the law will probably only give you a slap on the hand but we are patient and when you least expect it we will come for you and show you what pain feels like. You had a choice to hand your dogs in if you didn’t want them but no you enjoyed watching them suffer.
