Psychiatric & humane professionals agree that in the vast majority of cases, cruelty to animals is just one aspect of a social environment marked by violence. People who abuse animals are five times more likely to commit violent crime. Animal abuse, like many other forms of abuse, is about power and control over a helpless victim.

In 2011, 19-year-old Jeffrey A. Nally Jr. was arrested in New Cumberland West Virginia for torturing and killing 29 dogs -- most of them puppies. He obtained the animals through Free to Good Home ads. The Hancock County Prosecutor, with help from the ALDF charged him with multiple felonies, and he was sentenced to 10-45 years. Nally comes up for parole 04/04/2021.

We, the public, want him to remain behind bars for his full sentence. His crimes far exceed what is typically considered animal abuse. He has a lifetime history of aberrant behavor. He began hurting dogs at the age of 3, choking his grandfather's hunting puppies. He was in juvi for a short time as a teen for domestic violence against his mother. He is quoted as having told his girlfriend's mother that killing dogs made him feel good, and that she should try it. We believe his behavior is psychopathic and that he is a danger to society.
