SENTENCING SEPTEMBER 4 at the Middletown City Courthouse.
Make your voices heard! 

We are urging the Township of Middletown to serve JUSTICE FOR THE WALLKILL ROTTWEILERS . Sylvia Panetta  of New York had a total of 76 Rottweiler's and counting as some were pregnant. An investigation into Karousel Kennels revealed dogs living in horrific conditions with barely any shelter, insect infected water, fed for the most part a diet of moldy bread and conditions were described by Authorities in New York as one of the most disturbing cases of animal abuse they have ever seen. Approximately a quarter of the dogs were removed immediately to be given medical attention, one of which had a leg amputation, another having an eye removed, one euthanized due to kidney failure and most dogs underweight due to malnutition,  many sick needing medical care, toe amputations and it has been reported that  many of the dogs have deformaties due to the lack of care and conditions they were living in. This is not taking into account the emotional and psychological damage that these poor dogs have endured. .

A little background about this picture. This is Blossom, she is one of the 76 dogs found at the Puppy Mill raided in Middletown, NY. She had to be carried out because she was completely closed down while being lead out of her cage. The only home she has ever known was awash in a putrid slime of mud and who knows what else. "Pets Alive" and Rottweiler rescue groups "Mountain Rottie Rescue", "Rottie Empire Rescue" and "Hudson Valley Rottie Rescue" lead the way and were given only 10 days by the court  to get the dogs out and we applaud the above rescues and the good citizens for accomplishing this in getting every dog out and to safety. 

Please sign and share this petition as justice needs to be served and in your part you are saying enough is enough.

Sylvia Panetta's sentencing is set for SEPTEMBER 4 at the Middletown City Courthouse.and we need to get as many signatures as possible


Special Thanks to all of those rescue's above and the following for their part in the amazing  team work for the welfare of these animals. Warwick HS, Paws Unlimited, Middletown HS, Goshen HS, Franklin Shelter NJ, Oneonta Vet, For The Love Of Dog and to  the many good citizens. We Thank You
