Justice for 35 Dogs Allegedly Left Imprisoned and Neglected in Backyard

Target: Amy Weirich, District Attorney, Shelby County, TN

Goal:Charge man who allegedly kept over 30 dogs starving and injured to the fullest extent of the law.

Thirty-five dogs were found in a Memphis, TN, backyard, having allegedly been neglected and subjected to an immense amount of suffering. Sign the petition to demand that the man reportedly responsible for this cruelty be charged to the fullest extent the law will allow.

The dogs were reportedly confined in illegal hutches without food or water. Several were reported to have lacerations. Neighbors say they knew there were dogs on the property after hearing the sounds of barking. However, it was not until they saw one dog dangling from the yard’s chain link fence by its collar that they realized something was severely amiss.

The home’s owner, who is unnamed at this time, faces cruelty charges while the dogs look for new forever families. It is not currently known why the man reportedly owned so many dogs, but similar cases have often pointed to illegal breeding, illegal transport, fighting, and more. Demand that the man reportedly responsible for this cruelty be prosecuted to the fullest extent the law allows.


Dear District Attorney Weirich,

Over 30 dogs were rescued from what authorities described as horrific conditions. They were allegedly kept in outdoor sheds, chained, and left without food or water. One’s attempted escape alerted neighbors to their presence and to the cruelty they reportedly faced.

The man allegedly responsible now faces animal cruelty charges. I ask that he be prosecuted to the fullest extent the law will allow so that no other innocent animal is harmed.

    “The home’s owner, who is unnamed at this time…”
    and JUST WHY IS THAT? He needs to be identified, exposed and held accountable for his disgusting neglect of these poor animals! Get his name out here & get him punished, damn him!!!!

  2. Cindy Miller says:

    Name the SOB! The neighbors should have open their mouth soon! That many dogs on one property should have rang a bell!

  3. this guy should never have another day of happiness for intentionally neglecting these innocent dogs…..it’s not like they can go to the frig and get some water or food…..this person is a POS and deserves to be tied up and hung until he dies……make it long and painful…..an eye for an eye

  4. Why is this monster not named?
    Not PC? Related to a famous person? Protected species? He should be named and his ugly face with no mask exposed for the world to see.

  5. This horrible abuser needs to be prosecuted under the PACT ACT which President Trump signed into Law November 2019 which makes it a Federal CRIME to abuse ANY ANIMAL. It is punishable by imprisonment. There are many inmates that do not take kindly to anyone who abuses a child or an animal. Proverbs 12:10

  6. Linda Cummings says:

    Please put this soulless cretin into a tiny cell. Don’t bother providing any food or water, make the world a better place.

  7. Name this freaking POS! How could the neighbors not investigate the noise coming from the place? This worthless piece of excrement needs to spend the rest of his miserable life in jail.

  8. It is essential that we be provided with the name of this vile scumbag. This pos must pay BIGTIMNE!!!!!!!

  9. It is essential that we be provided with the name of this vile scumbag. This pos must pay BIGTIME!!!!!!!

  11. Tell us who this is. We need to name and shame. Most of these animal abusers only get a slap on the wrist, and then they become worse and worse, and often become violent toward other humans, if they aren’t already!

  12. Pamela Hengst says:

    I hope these poor dogs never endure neglect or pain again! Name the worthless owner so he can be properly punished.

  13. death penalty for this evel
