#FreeRose incarcerated at Waterbury, CT Pound

Rose, a little black pit bull, has spent more than four years (over 1,524 days) in solitary imprisonment at Waterbury, CT pound in a concrete cell with no human contact. She is never let out of her cage. Rose’s case has been stuck in the Federal Court in CT (Civil No. 3:15-cv-975(AWT)), as she continues to languish and suffer in the most inhumane of conditions. 

Rose accidentally got loose in April of 2014 and had a “bite” incident. An incident that occurred out of self-defense and fear as people were trying to corral and catch her. Rose is not a vicious dog and is a victim of circumstances. She was scared and did what any other animal would do. A “kill” order was issued.

Rose was once loved as "Rosie". She was once a family dog living with her human and dog companions. Rose will need rehabilitation after four years of solitary confinement. Rose's advocates have found a safe place for her to go and once again be loved. Road to Home Rescue (RTH) in Utica, NY is willing to rehabilitate Rose and will list City of Waterbury as additionally insured so the city has zero liability. The City of Waterbury that had a “destroy” order on Rose seems willing to support our solution to release Rose to RTH for rehabilitation. 

Rose's fate is NOW completely in the hands of the Judge. We need him to be Rose’s champion and make a humane decision to free Rose to RTH, so she can finally have a chance at life!
