Denounce Ted Cruz for Abandoning Dog in Freezing Texas Storm

Target: Ted Cruz, U.S. Senator

Goal: Take responsibility for leaving pet dog alone at freezing house in midst of winter storm.

When Senator Ted Cruz fled the freezing hell his constituents were enduring, he claimed he was only being “a good dad.” He defended against the outcry by casting himself as a selfless caretaker. Why, then, did this supposedly compassionate and warm-hearted man coldly abandon one of his defenseless “children”?

Senator Cruz and his family escaped to the heat and luxury of tropical destination Cancun in the early days of the winter storms that ravaged Texas. One member of the family was left behind, however: a small rescue dog named Snowflake. Images emerged of the canine barking and staring out the window of the dark, undeniably freezing house while his caretakers vacationed in Mexico.

Although the senator returned a day or so after he left because of the public outrage, records indicate that he initially planned to spend nearly a week away from home. Much like communities across the state, Snowflake would have been left to fend for himself for days in subzero temperatures. Although a Cruz spokesperson claimed a dog-sitter looked after the animal, other reports indicate a security guard parked outside in the frigid cold was Snowflake’s only so-called guardian.

Sign the petition below to demand Senator Cruz answer for his alleged callous cruelty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator Cruz,

Are you familiar with Texas Penal Code 42.092, Senator? If not, let’s elaborate. This statute deals with Cruelty to Non-Livestock Animals. Specifically of interest are the following sections: “failure to provide reasonable care to an animal in the person’s custody”; “unreasonably abandons an animal in the person’s custody”; “transports or confines the animal in a cruel manner.” How does it feel to be in likely violation of state criminal law?

When you jetted off to Cancun, you did not just fiddle while Texas froze and abandon the millions of Texans who were depending on you for leadership. You also cast away the dog you once rescued and left him vulnerable to an environment you described as “freezing,” with no means for physical or emotional warmth. This animal depends on you and trusts you for everything. In many respects, Snowflake is your child. Were you being “a good Dad” by letting him suffer, or die, cold and alone?

You must own up to your actions. Stop with the excuses. Apologize and take real, meaningful steps toward safeguarding all living beings in Texas. If you cannot provide the love and care Snowflake deserves, then—much like your leadership role for Texas communities—leave him in the hands of someone who can do better.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. Always knew you were a FAT useless POS, now its confirmed your an Animal Abuser as well. I pray they take your dog away and any other animals you may imprison. Your a lying loser, ass kissing Trumper WITH 100% DISRESPECT FOR DEMOCRACY AND THE CONSTITUTION. ADD THAT TO ANIMAL ABUSE AND ENDANGERMENT,
    NEGLECTING THE PEOPLE YOU WERE SO UNDERSERVINGLY ELECTED TO SERVE AND YOUR COMPLETE LACK OF CONSCIENCE WHEN NOT CONVICTING ORANGE MAN FOR INCITING THE RIOTS YOU ARE THE LOWEST KIND OF SCUM. I PRAY YOU RECEIVE THE KARMA YOU SO DESERVE YOU UGLY POS!!!

  3. never liked the ass-kissing, self-serving traitor cruz to begin with – it does not surprise me that he is also an animal abuser – many people of his ilk are abusers because there is really only ONE living being in their lives that matters – THEMSELVES…

  4. Cathy McCormick says:

    I’ve always thought that Cruz was an arrogant right-wing conservative! But, in hearing that he abandoned the family dog in sub-freezing temperatures, my opinion of him just got lower! Lower than the sewer! What a jerk!

  5. kory chatelain says:

    Ted Cruz is the perfect example of what a politician isn’t supposed to be. He is so far up trump’s ass he can see 45’s tonsils.

  6. Isn’t animal abuse against the law there? If it is he should be held accountable!

    • Please read the article by Houston-based journalist Michael Hardy who actually visited the Cruz’s home. He confirmed the security guard said he was taking care of the dog and neighbors told him the power came back on the night the Cruz’s left. Stop focusing on sensationalized headlines.
      This is the first animal cruelty petition I have not signed because it’s nonsense and we should be focusing on the real cases of which there are sadly plenty.

      • HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS IS TRUE? Remember. People are lying to cover Cryzs lying ass.

      • You’re right. I hate animal abuse but the people are sensationalizing everything and don’t care about the truth. There’s enough hate around as it is. I choose to.focus on the real abusers this guy was just getting shit because he’s a Republican. I’m not a Republican but I don’t like liars either and news reporters are nothing but liars lately. Now I’m going to have to check everything this site puts up.

  7. What an asshole!!!!! Stick his fatass in a freezing room!! He sucks. Charge him with animal cruelty and being a dumbass.

  8. Not ONLY he’s a lier! This so called man don’t have a conscience!!! The dog should be taken away and place @ a REPUTABLE rescue so they can find him a real caring loving forever home! Banned this COWARD from ever owning a pet and expulse him from the Senate! Let him lick his cult master’s shoes!!

  9. Other animals aren’t toys, or tools, or ornaments, or accessories. Leave other animals alone. They shouldn’t be dressed up and posed for your amusement, or used however else you please. Having things put on them is uncomfortable, annoying, and they get in their way. They should only wear clothes if it’s for their benefit, such as to keep them warm or dry.

    Good doesn’t excuse evil. Humans have a serious lack of empathy when it comes to other animals. They’re not mindless machines. Their emotions aren’t muted. Human ego is disgusting.

    ‬No one has the right to kidnap, enslave, exploit, rape, torture, or murder anyone, for any reason.

    You wouldn’t do it to humans, and shouldn’t to other animals. It’s that simple.

    Watch Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts. Luna Lovegood and Newt Scamander are perfect examples of how you should view and treat other animals.

    “We must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy.” – Albus Dumbledore

    “Do you know why I admire you, Newt? More, perhaps, than any man I know? You do not seek power, or popularity. You simply ask ‘Is a thing right? In itself?’ If it is you do it, no matter the cost.” – Albus Dumbledore

    Humans are animals, and no more special than any other creature.

  10. Why is he still a fucking senator? Why do we need to put up with assholes like this one, liars, thieves, corrupted idiots?? Because if we were to put one in jail the other morons in power would have to follow suit…oh wait that’s a dream government officials never ever go to jail like regular people…what a pathetic moron with his stupid cry face. He won’t suffer any penalties let’s be honest they do whatever they want!!! Don’t allow this idiot to own a pet again!

  11. Raymond Stevens says:

    cruz is a typical right wing self serving, hypocritical piece of shit

  12. Annette & Jeff Patrone says:

    If this is true, that is utterly shameful no matter ones political views or position. Signed!

    • Why did you sign without fact checking?
      Please read the article by Houston-based journalist Michael Hardy who actually visited the Cruz’s home. He confirmed the security guard said he was taking care of the dog and neighbors told him the power came back on the night the Cruz’s left.

  13. Just like ALL MEN. Useless and dirty pigs

    • Something is clearly wrong with you. I’m married to the kindest man in the world.

  14. Rafael Garay says:

    A fat and ugly fpos he is, lying Cruz. What else can be said about this waste of putrid flesh, hiding behind a title, cowardly enough to blame others but not to defend his family.

  15. I know this giant lying POS insorrectionist had a man at his house to check things, but the dog is a living, feeling creature. Ted left the poor thing in an icy home and planned to be home at least a week in the sun. As is his character and custom, he then lied like hell once he got caught. He is a worthless citizen who is complicit with the traitors – and an animal abuser. Does not speak well for his family who also left the poor little dog to freeze.

  16. Fucking worthless piece of shit Ted Cruz you fucking scumbag you in your family should be left out in the cold

  17. Reading all these comments, I’m amazed at how easily some people will believe anything. You read it, therefore it is? I have a bridge and some swamp land I’d like to sell, any buyers out there? I can’t believe how so many people jumped on this bullshit story & I’m very disappointed in animalpetitions.org for printing this crap! This is nothing more than a political hit job! And please spare me a response that if this had been a liberal….If Senator Cruz were a democrat, there would never have been anything written about this in the first place.

    • Oh look! Trumptard is back. You should go to Newsmax where they are saying Bidens dog Champ is dirty and looks ” unpresidential”.LMAO!!!!! Lying Ted is a vile pos and there was NO HEAT like Cruz said on tv. NO HEAT CAME BACK ON AT NIGHT.

      • Gilda, you are either a Russian bot or just a complete idiot. I’m thinking it’s the latter.

        • Lance Kammerud says:

          Coming from a Trumptard like ol Fedup…u sound like a Piece Of Total Useless Sh*t like Trump, Cruz and the rest of Trumps enabling right wing politicians and supporters

  18. There isn’t one good thing about this man. He was a crazy man during the election of President, still crazy on that. He abandoned the people who voted him in at one of Texas’ worst days. He, and his disgusting family, abandoned their poor dog and left it to freeze to death. So, do any authority people have the guts to prosecute this uncaring goofball?

  19. Jim Takahashi says:

    This scumbag is so very AmeriKKKan, just like Trump.

  20. This did not happen. Ted Cruz left his dog in a security guard’s care at his home while he was out of country. People need to research before they go hog wild with hatred for someone who is wrongfully accused. Get a grip, people.
