WE NEED YOU TO BE KILO's VOICE....On April 5th, in Lyons Illinois police were called for a possible animal neglect situation. Kilo, a mastiff mix appeared, to our volunteer, that he was in serious distress. Kilo died within minutes of our volunteer arriving.The Police Chief in Lyons, Illinois is refusing to find out the cause of death (which we suspect is starvation). Therefore, he refusing to charge the owner with any crime. Instead Chief James Keating wants to issue a citation.

THIS IS WHERE WE NEED YOU……We demand that the police have a necropsy (animal autopsy) conducted on Kilo to know what caused Kilo's death and file criminal charges, if warranted.

The police wrote the owner a municipal ticket and the court date is set for April 25, 2017 at 3pm at the Village hearing room, 4200 S. Lawndale in Lyons, IL. WE NEED PEOPLE to attend that hearing and DEMAND JUSTICE FOR KILO, MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD! .

Here's the facts:

On Wednesday, April 5, a concerned citizen called police to an address on Rose Avenue in Lyons, IL and put a post on FB requesting help for a dog (looked like a mastiff mix) that was in the yard looking to be in very bad condition.

Our volunteer, Chris Cozzi, once arrived and seeing the dog, called Lyons police back to an address on Rose Avenue, Lyons Illinois. A Lyons police officer responded and Chris Cozzi voiced serious concern that the dog was looking to be in very serious distress. The officer said that our volunteer, Chris Cozzi could take the dog to the vet. Chris immediately took Kilo to Countryside Animal Hospital, where it was confirmed Kilo was dead. The vet told Chris from a visual observation that it appeared the dog was starved to death. A necropsy MUST be performed so we can have a conclusive cause of death, in order to bring criminal charges to the owner. dogaHOWLicks Rescue has offered to cover the expense of having the necropsy done. Therefore, there is no logical reason for Lyons Police Chief Keating not to do so.
