Dogs With Hair So Matted They Screamed When Touched Deserve Justice

Target: Timothy D. Sini, District Attorney for Suffolk County, New York

Goal: Demand that the woman who allegedly neglected her two dogs, resulting in the dogs becoming malnourished and severely matted, receive the maximum penalty by law.

Two dogs were allegedly starved and neglected in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The dogs reportedly suffered from malnourishment, and their hair was severely matted and urine-soaked. Demand justice for these poor dogs.

“They had difficulty walking, and even screamed in pain from touching them, because they were so matted,” stated Roy Gross, chief of the Suffolk County SPCA. The two Shih-tzus, owned by Blanca Andrade, were reportedly so malnourished that their ribs showed through their skin, and they suffered from multiple untreated infections. Per investigators, the dogs were infested with fleas, and they wandered freely around the neighborhood in all extremes of weather.

The dogs received medical treatment, and are they are currently residing at the Babylon Animal Shelter. The SPCA charged Andrade with two counts of animal cruelty. Sign below and demand that Andrade receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney Sini,

Two dogs suffered when they were allegedly starved and neglected. The dogs’ hair was reportedly so matted and urine-soaked that they screamed in pain when touched. We demand justice for these innocent dogs.

The Suffolk County SPCA charged Blanca Andrade with two counts of animal cruelty after she allegedly starved and neglected her two Shih-tzus. Per investigators, the dogs suffered with untreated infections and flea infestations. They were reportedly so malnourished that their ribs showed through their skin, and they often wandered the streets in extreme weather. The dogs are residing at the Babylon Animal Shelter while they recover. Andrade is due in court at a later date.

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

    Creatures posing as humans should be locked up and given the same treatment they so like to hand out to animals,vile little low life I hope will be banned for life for having any animals again,no doubt they spent their lives in the so called back yard in filth.



    • I totally agree with you Debbie Mervicker. The little slaps on hands have proved to be useless in deterring pos scumbags from torturing & abusing animals.

      • Eileen Bennett says:

        I agree. These pieces of excrement rarely face any harsh punishment and I believe this is why we Read so many of these stories. If these dogs were walking outside where were the neighbors? Was this a case of Its not my business! These poor animals didn’t get in this condition overnight. Poor babies I hope they find good homes with people who will love and take good care of them.

    Jail for the abuser,justice for dogs!!.

  4. Dolores Proubasta says:

    Human “rights” stand in the way of all other animal rights, but things would get better if instead of jail (which never is long enough and is at the expense of taxpayers) animal abusers were: (1) confiscated property and garnished salaries to pay for expenses to care for the victims; (2) permanently included in a National Registry of Animal Abusers; (3) deported if undocumented (leaving their posessions behind to pay for expenses); (4) sterilized if the abuse was sexual in nature. It’s all just and civilized; they actually deserve an eye for an eye.

  5. This woman should never be allowed to keep animals ever again poor dogs deserve justice

  6. Ann Fuller says:

    I hope that justice is served to this woman! I once found a dog (a Snoodle) and when I took him home and tried to clean him up so he could come into the house – I cut many buckets of matts with poop stuck to them. Next day our Buddy went to the groomer and he did not even look like the same dog. Shame on that woman!

  7. Maineiac says:

    Prosecutors must push for strong penalties for Ms. Andrade to make it clear that those who keep animals are legally required to care for them and those who fail to do so will be prosecuted. The court must also ensure that Andrade is not allowed to keep animals in future, as she has clearly shown both negligent cruelty and incompetence in this regard.

  8. What is wrong with the owner, sure she is well fed, starve her and let her hair get so matted it hurts. This woman is a idiot, does not deserve to ever own an animal for the rest of her life. Her sentence needs to be to work in an animal shelter and brush dogs.

  9. Heather Brophy says:

    This is not a human but a Subhuman that needs to be Fined, Jailed, Sterilized if not then Put the Idiot Down!!

  10. What a complete barbaric idiot , hold her accountable to the fullest degree f the law. This idiot tortured these poor creatures starving them , allowing their hair to become matted PLUS allowed them to become saturated in their own urine which had to burn their skin eventually. You rotten SOB, I hope you get what is coming to you and your NEVER allowed animals again !!

  11. Dawn Pettinger says:

    Why would you do that !! It’s extreme abuse of the worst possible kind, only a depraved monster with a twisted evil mind, needs locking up forever and throw away the key. The suffering these little dogs endured is unforgivable, why didn’t she take them to the pound. I hope the courts find justice for these poor little dogs. Why didn’t the neighbors do something about it, or family, or friends, it’s wicked to ignore there plight and turn a blind eye. Shame on you.

    • Kathy green says:

      Yes, very wicked to turn a blind eye! I have shih-tzus and they are the kindest of dogs! How did this slip under the rug for God’s sake?

      • I too have two little shih-tzus ,they are sweet lovable little dogs.What kind of monster could possibly have any excuse for deliberately abussing these dear little souls,I cry for them,she wants locking up and the key thrown away.Someone should have reported this cruelty,but people are only interested in their own selfish lives.I am disgusted by this creature ,a subhuman indeed.

  12. Wicked disgusting vile bitch . I hope these 2 little dogs make a speedy recovery and find forever loving homes . Preferably together .
    Jail the backward retard for allowing this to happen . Wicked wicked peice of shit .

  13. Rose Coffey says:

    This gal has no need to have pets; penalize her to the fullest extent of the law. I don’t know why she would neglect her pets like this but it’s plain to see she has no common sense to her, much less a heart.

  14. First, prosecute her for extreme neglect, then ban her from owning any animal, even a goldfish, for life. Make her do community service at the animal shelters helping to care of animals who are in the same shape she let these two get into – what a waste of skin this ‘person’ is.

  15. K. ogden says:

    Make sure this lazy cruel person never owns another animal again and please do not return these poor little dogs to her – let them be adopted and cared for by a “responsible” and kind owner in their forever home

  16. lynn woods says:

    this bitch should thrown in jail for a long time also with inmates that love animals how could she do this to these poor dogs

  17. Diane Silvestri says:

    This woman is a disgusting excuse for a human being. I hope someone locks her up and treats her the same way she treated these poor animals. I hope she’s neglected so badly that she ends up in as much pain, if not more, than these 2 dogs endured. I hope she’s sentenced to prison and she rots there. I doubt that will happen, but I will always hope and pray that it does!

  18. This woman is a self centered witch. How cruel, leaving mats on a dog can kill them. I want the worst possible punishment for her. Should get long jail time a in solitary(I wish).

  19. Nena Miller says:

    What a sick creep! Throw her useless behind in jail.

  20. Catherine Jenereaux says:

    Again, someone knew what was going on, why did they not report her to the authorities before it reached this level of cruelty. I am tired of people being able to purchase pets with no follow up on how the animals are being cared for. The Shelters and SPCA are just happy to have the animals adopted. Breeders don’t care if the person has the money. Andrade is a disgusting person with no regard for the pain and suffering the two pets were put through. They should not even be able to come into contact with animals let alone own one.
