Search and Rescue Dog Allegedly Denied Medical Care Deserves Justice

Target: Ross County, Ohio Prosecutor Jeffrey C. Marks

Goal: Give former corrections officer strictest legal sentence for allegedly neglecting dog so badly he was unable to stand.

A five-year-old German shepherd named Sarge that was being trained to become a search and rescue dog was allegedly so neglected he was unable to stand for over two days. A corrections officer and the dog’s trainer, Jessica M. Malone, was charged with two animal cruelty offenses and not obtaining a proper license. She needs to receive the harshest legal sentence if she is found guilty of neglecting this innocent dog.

Veterinarians said that Sarge was only 47 pounds when he was examined, and he was therefore thought to be 30 pounds underweight. Although Malone reportedly told a veterinarian the dog had lost weight three days before she sought medical care, it was allegedly discovered that a trainer had previously told her she should take Sarge to a veterinary hospital if his weight loss continued.

Sarge is now being cared for by the local humane society and has gained 10 pounds with the help of his caretakers. Sign this petition to demand Sarge receives the justice he deserves if it is found that he was mistreated in any way.


Dear Prosecutor Marks,

A former corrections officer named Jessica M. Malone was recently charged with animal cruelty and for not getting a license for her service dog in training. Veterinarians allegedly noticed the animal’s ribs could be clearly seen and further reported that the five-year-old German shepherd named Sarge was unable to stand up by himself. Malone must receive the most stringent punishment possible if it is found she is responsible for Sarge’s condition to better ensure she will not harm other animals.

Sarge was said to be 30 pounds underweight, as he allegedly only weighed 47 pounds when he was seen by a veterinarian. Although Malone did seek medical help for him, it was reported that she had been told by another trainer beforehand that she should get Sarge looked at if his body continued to deteriorate. Because veterinarians suspected that Sarge had lost a lot of weight due to long-term neglect, the dog was placed in the care of the local humane society.

Sarge is now able to stand, eat, and go to the bathroom on his own, but he will have to significantly improve before shelter officials will be able to put him up for adoption. For these reasons, we demand you suggest Malone receive maximum time behind bars if she is found guilty of this heartless neglect.
