Justice for 17 Neglected Pit Bulls in Orlando, Florida

An Orlando man was arrested this week on 8 counts of animal cruelty. His crime cost 16 dogs their lives and now we are seeking justice on their behalf.

Sidney Garrett, Jr., was arrested Tuesday, January 31, 2012, on 8 counts of animal cruelty. Orange County Sheriff officers found 17 dogs, four of which were puppies, in deplorable conditions: thick chains confined them to wooden kennels that contained no food and very little water. The dogs were a medical nightmare: they had fresh bite wounds, fractures, infections, mites, heartworms, anemia, and were malnourished and emaciated. Furthermore, the bite wounds and the fact the dogs’ teeth were filed point to dog fighting. The neglect was so severe that all but one of the 17 dogs, a puppy that suffered from mange and dehydration, had to be euthanized.

While that puppy is now safe with a rescue group, Garrett is still awaiting his fate. Please help ensure he never does this to another animal by signing this petition.

      Make sure "it" does a long time with animal lovers. "It" should never be allowed to have anything to do with animals again.

      I hope he serves time and that he is never allowed around animals as part of any plea bargains. Hopefully, felony charges will stay on his record forever. If cruel people did not enjoy dogfighting, then he would be out of business.

      The measure of a man can be judged by how he treats those in his care. He has no regard for innocence and no compassion for those he feels are less than he.

      We have the technology and money to put an end to this kind of cruelty. THIS is how I want MY tax dollars spent. Prosecute this POS to the fullest extent of the law!
