PETITION TARGET: Delaware County Sheriff’s Office

A kitten and seven dogs were found tragically dead at a property in Iowa — among 43 surviving neglected animals. The defenseless dogs and cats were found suffering horrible conditions, including a grotesque amount of animal waste and lack of fresh air, according to local news.

Photos of the rescued dogs show that their fur was so severely matted their faces were largely obscured. They appear to have suffered from long-term neglect. The surviving animals were all also found to be experiencing health issues, according to the Dubuque Regional Humane Society in a Facebook post. While the surviving animals are being cared for, none of the dogs or cats found at the property should have ever been subjected to such horrific living conditions or lack of care.

The innocent animals are suspected by authorities to have been suffering in an illegal dog breeding operation, according to KCRG

No animal deserves to be forced to live among their waste, suffer from lack of vet care, or be denied basic love and attention. 

Sign our petition calling on the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office to fully investigate this case and to apprehend the person(s) responsible to spare other animals from suffering a similar fate.
