According to data obtained by, Lace Walker has been charged with a misdemeanor due to her alleged neglect and torture of a dog named Cookie.

Cookie was a rescue dog that was adopted by Lace Walker and her husband at the St. George Animal Shelter. Walker is accused of failing to feed a mixed-breed poodle named "Cookie". She pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of intentional or knowing cruelty to an animal in Judge Douglas Whitlock's court.

Cookie was rescued on May 16 after a friend visited the Walker residence. Cookie succumbed to her illness and was humanely euthanized during the month of June. Her rescuers tried by all means to save her and provided her with a loving foster home till the end of her days. Rest in peace Cookie.


Please read the following information about how there is a connection between animal cruelty and human violence. This needs to be taken in consideration at the time of reviewing Lace Walker's case and hopefully lead to a fair sentencing.
