Help an abused service dog

    1. Petition by

      Concerned Citizen

      Willow Springs, MO

No animal should ever be subjected to cruel behavior, but there is a service animal that has been abused numerous times in plain view of the citizens in this town. The dog has been muzzeled in the 100+ degree weather, therefore not allowing it to drink or pant to cool itself. It's been beaten, choked, dragged and more. It's an outrage that nothing is being done to protect this beautiful animal. One person has reported that the police report they filed about the abuse has been lost. Please take a moment to sign, letting the Mountainview Missouri police dept know that we need their help. Thank you.

      If there are witnesses to the abuse of the dog, the owner needs to be arrested and charged with animal abuse.

      because of an animal is a crime and abuse of a service animal is intolerable!

      If this animal is still suffering because no-one has bothered to help, then shame on everyone who ignores abuse. Please show the world that you care and do something immediately to help this abused animal, and any other animal which needs help. Thank you

      any abuse is wrong but this is a 'Service' dog, I'd of thought that they will be wanting to know their dog is being treated so appallingly, and likely they'll remove the dog.. It's worth trying to contact them. The bottom line is this poor dog needs rescuing. The more peopl that watch and do nothing are as guilty as the person abusing him.

      It is extremely imperative that this situation be rectified ASAP! There is NO reason why a service dog should be muzzled! They need to be able to open their mouth and let the tongue release the heat that builds up inside their bodies. They have no sweat glands, except on their paws. There is no reason why a person should look the other way when he/she sees a harmless dog being beaten, choked, dragged and more, according to what it states here. This is not to be tolerated at all! Why on earth would anyone want to do this to a defenseless lovable being, and a service dog no less! Please, I am begging the Mountainview, Missouri police department to step in and save this poor dog, because if a person does this to an animal, they will also be doing this to a human!
