Malnourished Horses and Dogs Allegedly Victimized by Negligent Owner Deserve Justice

Target: Heather L. Adams, District Attorney of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania

Goal: Punish woman who reportedly skipped out on trial after alleged animal neglect.

In the fall of 2020, authorities discovered seemingly severely undernourished horses and dogs at a Pennsylvania property. The owner of the property, Joanna Fleming, faced felony and misdemeanor cruelty charges along with unrelated charges for theft and fraud. She was recently due in court to face these allegations. Instead of taking responsibility and defending herself, this woman apparently chose to skip out on court—and potential punishment—instead.

As reported in this ForceChange petition, three horses were said to be in particularly bad shape, reportedly afflicted with rain rot and overgrown hooves in addition to the alleged malnourishment. Tragically, a horse just days old was euthanized because he had developed sepsis from deeply infected wounds.

Sign the petition below to urge that this suspect be levied additional charges along with the maximum possible sentence if found guilty. These poor animals deserve justice, something that Fleming cannot and should not be able to ignore.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Adams,

Joanna Fleming failed to appear for her court date in which she would answer five animal cruelty charges and other serious charges. She must be held accountable for both her alleged actions and her apparent flight from the legal system. One young animal died and several more could have suffered the same fate. These living beings deserve justice.

Please ensure Ms. Fleming is brought to justice by prosecuting her to the fullest extent when she is apprehended.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Fleming needs Street Justice, the sort subhumans don’t recover from, wicked scum

  2. Find this woman and lock her up! She is either ignorant or uncaring or both! Neither is an acceptable excuse! Knowledge can be obtained for free, but uncaring needs to be acted upon and STOPPED!!!

  3. Evan Jane Kriss says:

    If you own animals, you have a moral and ethical obligation to properly care for them. If you’re unwilling or unable to do so, you have a moral and ethical obligation to surrender them to an organization or an individual that can. Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law for multiple counts of egregious animal abuse. Make her PAY ALL VET BILLS to restore the surviving animals to full health. BAN her from ever purchasing, owning, caring for or working with any animals ever again.

  4. If found guilty?? Really?? There’s the proof and evidence right before your eyes, throw this freaking ho bag in jail for the rest of her miserable life. If you can’t take care of animals, then don’t have any!!

  5. JOANNA FLEMING MUST BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE. SHE DELIBERATELY AND WITH MALICE LEFT THESE ANIMALS TO DIE OF STARVATION. THERE IS NO REASON THIS KIND OF CRUELTY SHOULD BE LEFT UNPUNISHED. PENNSYLVANIA MUST REALIZE HOW SERIOUS THIS IS AND PUNISH HER AS AN EXAMPLE TO ALL OTHER ABUSERS THAT PENNSYLVANIA WILL NOT TOLERATE THIS KIND OF TORTURE. PENNSYLVANIA YOU MUST TREAT THIS AS A CRIME AGAINST AN INNOCENT ANIMAL WHO HAD NO WAY TO DEFEND ITSELF.

  6. Animal abusers must be put to death.

  7. This HORRIBLE ABUSER needs to be punished to the fullest extent of the Law under the PACT ACT!!! Proverbs 12:10

  8. They live among us. And shouldn’t.

  9. Tammy Brown says:

    All a person has to do is ask for help and as soon as you know that you need it.I don’t understand how a person can be so cruel,

  10. These pieces of shit doesn’t deserve to exist. I have no faith in humanity.
