Dog Reportedly Found Abandoned in Street and Lethally Underweight Deserves Justice

Target: Chief Crown Attorney of Appeals and Special Prosecutions, Mark Scott

Goal: Give couple stringent legal sentence and re-home dog if they are found guilty of animal cruelty.

A malnourished boxer with wounds on his body was allegedly found roaming the streets by himself. Owners Jennifer Hurlburt and Matthew Hart were arrested soon afterwards for animal cruelty. They need to have their dog permanently taken away from them and be given a harsh punishment, if it is found they are responsible for mistreating this helpless dog.

According to authorities, the dog weighed approximately 30 pounds when he was found. Male boxers usually weigh around 70 pounds, which means this dog was apparently extremely underweight. A dog’s organs can shut down as a result of becoming too malnourished. Thankfully, he is now receiving veterinary care. However, if the allegations are true, he could have died had he not been found.

Sign this petition to demand these people not get their dog back if they submit an appeal to the court and to further demand they spend time behind bars, if they are found to be responsible for this inexcusable animal abuse.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chief Crown Attorney Scott,

Jennifer Hurlburt and Matthew Hart were arrested shortly after their dog was allegedly found walking around the streets emaciated. They need to spend time in prison, and this dog needs to be re-homed, if they are found guilty of animal cruelty.

Officials stated that the dog weighed about 30 pounds, which is grossly underweight for an adult male boxer. Oftentimes a dog’s organs will begin to shut down after they become emaciated, which can further lead to more serious health problems or even death.

Such abuse should not be tolerated, since giving a dog to a shelter is an option if adequate care cannot be provided. We therefore demand you suggest he not go back to his former owners and that the owners also be given a severe legal sentence, if they are found guilty of this pathetic neglect.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Lock them up, walk away and toss the key.
    Let them starve!

  2. These people need to be charged with animal cruelty, a Felony! They purposely did not feed the dog just to watch him die. The marks on the dog need to be investigated , probably the viscous act of these 2 POS monsters! Throw them in jail!!

  3. Please don’t let these people have their dog back, please re-home him to a loving family, that will treat him a lot better then these people. Please punish the owners for their neglected of a underweight dog, please do not allowed them to have their dog back, l beg of you, from the bottom of my heart, for l am an exstrimly animal lover, l demand Justice for the dog’s well being and safety. Justice for the dog, punishment to the owners, l rest my case.

    People like this do not deserve to have a pet. If you can not care for your pet then you need to let a shelter know so they can get some kind of help. This couple did this intentionally so they deserve to be charged with a felony and not be allowed to get this precious animal back. Post their pictures and names for all to see.

  5. This poor dog must be immediately seized and re-homed. These animal abusing scumbags must have life long bans imposed on them,stopping them from ever owing any animal.A lengthy prison sentence with a minimum of 20 year duration must also be applied to them re this shocking case of animal abuse! I advocate the death penalty for these 2 vile bastards.

    Maximum fine maximum jail time
    Never allowed to own pet again

  7. PURE EVIL!!! PUNISH TO THE MAX!!!~

  8. THIS POOR DOG. . . . WAS STARVING AND CONFUSED. THESE STUPID IGNORANT OWNERS NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE SUFFERING AND STARVATION OF THEIR DOG. THEY HAVE BEEN NEGLECTING THEIR DOG, CAUSING MUCH SUFFERING AND TRAUMA TO HIM OR HER. THIS IS INEXCUSABLE AND UNACCEPTABLE. THIS IS INFURIATING. THEY ARE HEARTLESS IGNORANT LOW-LIFE MORONS.
