PETITION TARGET: Highlands Police Department
UPDATE 2/18/2019: Aaron Davis has been indicted with attempted animal cruelty and animal cruelty. He faces up to 5 years in prison for the attempted animal cruelty charge, and up to 18 months for the animal cruelty charge.
The terrified dog was discovered on the shoreline in Veterans Memorial Park in Highlands, New Jersey, cowering helplessly inside a cage as water rose around him. The cage was almost completely covered with water by the time Animal Control arrived on the scene. The dog — named ‘River’ by his rescuer – was about to drown in a slow, painful death.
Police are still searching for the person who tortured and tried to kill this innocent dog. It is crucial that they find this sick individual before they hurt any more animals (or humans).
Sign this petition urging the Highlands Police Department to make every effort to find the person who left River to die a horrific death, and prosecute them to the full extent of the law.
Police estimate that River was dumped in the area between 4:00 AM and 6:00 AM on Monday 30th July. Anyone with information, please contact the MCPO Animal Cruelty Hotline at 877-898-7297 or notify the Highlands Police Dept. at (732) 872-1224.
