Justice for Skeletal Puppy Starved Nearly to Death

This petition had 67,430 supporters

When police found this abused beagle puppy, skeletal from starvation, the poor dog was in such bad shape that vets thought they'd have to euthanize.

This emaciated puppy was just one of five dogs seized from a Leitchfield, Kentucky home. All of them were severely neglected and living among dead animals including several dead chickens. Although the puppy managed to survive with round-the-clock veterinary care, the dog would likely have died too had police not intervened.

Suspect Greg Rigdon was charged on some counts, but the investigation is still ongoing. It is imperative that local law enforcement treat this animal cruelty case with the seriousness it deserves. 

Sign this petition to urge the Grayson County Sheriff's Office to investigate this disturbing case thoroughly, and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law -- including enacting a lifetime ban on this man ever owning an animal again.
