Puppies and Reptiles Found Dead in Freezer Deserve Justice


Target: Jeffrey L. Arnold, Delaware Country Prosecutor

Goal: Punish man who allegedly killed puppies and reptiles, and kept other dogs in mud and feces.

Ryan Pelfrey was allegedly found with eighteen dead puppies and six reptiles in his freezer. The 23-year-old reportedly also had 46 dogs in his home, and is facing charges of animal cruelty and neglect. Animal control had been called after a meter reader was horrified by the animals’ living conditions and called the police.

It is reported that the 46 dogs were living in mud and feces. Some witnesses stated that every part of the house had feces on it. An investigator for the city’s animal control stated that Pelfrey kept three or four dogs in each kennel, and that he is certain that there was dog fighting involved. Animal Control also found the dead puppies and reptiles in plastic bags in the freezer. Reportedly, there were also dead turtles in the freezer, and it is unclear as to why Pelfrey was keeping them there.

All of the dogs were washed and examined at Pine Acres Kennels. Local veterinarians came to attend to the animals, vaccinating and evaluating each animal’s status of health. Some of the animals had parts of their face or ears missing, and others were too weak to walk. The dogs will remain at Pine Acres for 30 days while Pelfrey is facing his charges, and all are expected to make a full recovery.

Ryan Pelfrey is being held in the Delaware County Jail on a $65,000 bond. He is facing charges of animal cruelty and neglect. Please support this petition by signing below, and bring justice to all these animals.


Dear Prosecutor Arnold,

Ryan Pelfrey allegedly had 46 dogs kept in urine, feces, and small kennels in his home. It is also reported that there were eighteen dead puppies and six lizards in his freezer. He is now facing various charges of animal neglect and cruelty.

I support bringing justice for these animals, and to prevent further damage to other animals. Please support a fair punishment for these cruel acts by convicting this man.

  1. Those poor animals, what a gross SOB & he needs the highest punishment!

  2. Christine Bennett says:

    This is so sad… poor animals. I feel a real sense of desperation for animals who trustfully enter the world of humans, only to find themselves in conditions of horrific cruelty. Our society must become MORE! MORE RESPONSIBLE, more COMPASSIONATE and more CARING!!

  3. Lisbeth Alvarado Sanchez says:

    This monster must be sent to jail for life. He should never be allowed near an animal.

  4. Laura Neville says:

    Probably one of the most horrible things I’ve heard

  5. Do the same with him, leave him in his feces and after some year put him in the freezer alive. Violence should be punished particularly when the victims are harmless!

  6. Gabriele Urban says:

    Do the same to this piece of scum and let him rot. No punishment is great enough.

  7. He is a sorry excuse for a human being! He deserve to be jailed for what he has done to these poor innocent animals.

  8. I want justice for these animals because if you don’t do it I bloody well will.
