Puppies Allegedly Kept in Filthy Conditions Deserve Justice

Target: State Attorney for Florida’s Fourth Judicial Circuit, Melissa Nelson

Goal: Charge and get man counseling for allegedly starving and keeping animals in unfit conditions.

Twelve dogs and four puppies were allegedly found living in unkempt conditions. Tommie Eugene Mercer III was arrested for the crime. It is important that this man be charged and also get appropriate counseling if he is found guilty so that he will be less likely to abuse animals in the future.

According to authorities, the animals were found with dirty water and little food. They were allegedly living in cages filled with waste and were also said to be emaciated. Mercer reportedly told officers that the animals were used as hunting dogs. They are now in the custody of Animal Care and Protective Services.

Sign below and demand that Mercer no longer be allowed to own animals and further demand that he be charged with animal abuse and also receive counseling if he is found guilty of not providing these dogs and puppies with adequate care.


Dear State Attorney Nelson,

Tommie Eugen Mercer III was recently arrested for allegedly allowing four puppies and twelve dogs to live in unacceptable conditions. Authorities stated that the dogs were found with only a small amount of food and water that was not safe to consume. The animals were reportedly kept in cages with their own urine and feces. They were further thought to be too thin.

Mercer needs to be given a stringent legal penalty for this abuse and be required to attend regular counseling sessions, if he is found guilty, so that he will hopefully gain a better understanding as to why treating any animal in this manner is unacceptable. Counseling is further important, because many people who harshly abuse animals later go on to commit more heinous crimes against people.

I therefore demand that you suggest Mercer spend time behind bars, if found guilty of this alleged act of animal cruelty, that he not be allowed to currently own any animals and that he further not be allowed to have contact with animals in the future without being subjected to regular checks from local animal control officials.

    Now here’s a REAL DEPLORABLE….Tommie Eugene Mercer III. Wish we could confine him to a cage & treat him the same as he treated those poor dogs!!! I really think that’s the ONLY WAY people like MERCER understand the consequences of their poor judgment and actions!!!

  2. Why even have animals if you are such a disgusting excuse for caretaker?

  3. Why the hell are we concerned about him getting “counselling” – seriously what is wrong with everyone. He doesn’t need counselling he needs a bullet between his eyes – the cycle is then broken. He will never stop nor will the rest of them because there is no deterrent to make them stop.

  4. Is this what America call DEMOCRACY? Seeing as it’s a word used so much yet so misused within the U.S, I feel so angry with these gun toting idiots that just want to kill or abuse animals because there are no LAWS in most states when it comes to animals. Less money on flags every 2 foot and more ploughed into Animal welfare and education, as there is far too much animal cruelty within America, it seems to be systemic with the majority of people. Those responsible should be made to go clean the worst and dirtiest places imaginable. Give them a taste of their own medicine.

    Give this reprehensible creep a taste of his own medicine, stuff him in a filthy cage and feed him garbage. See how he likes it. I’m glad the animals were rescued.

  6. Animal abusers globally must have the mandatory death penalty performed on them. I am ready, willing and able to help with this procedure.

  7. Kathleen I Nagy-DeRosa says:

    And this demented abuser most likely has a gun. What the hell?

  8. This HORRIBLE abuser needs to be prosecuted under The PACT ACT which makes it a federal crime to abuse any animal punishable by imprisonment!!
