This petition had 10,831 supporters

Kingston was a gorgeous American Eskimo that was tortured and killed in a Welland hotel by the dogs owners. Someone at the hotel called the police about an injured dog and police came and located the dead dog. 22 year old Krystina Paonessa who is registered on the site pawsitter to watch your pets for a fee and boyfriend 31 year old Jeffery Carlos Tisi who is well known to police and was charged with assault just 10 months ago were arrested in the death and torture of Kingston. The body of the dog was sent to the University of Guelph for Post-Mordem and the dog was found to be mutilated. 

Tisi has been charged with causing unnecessary suffering to an animal, Failure to comply with undertaking and Failing to comply with a probation order.

Poanessa has been charged with causing unnecessary suffering to an animal..

The pair could face up to 5 years behind bars..

We, the undersigned, respectfully request that the Crown Attorney proceed with the case against the accused as an indictable offence and, IF they are convicted, advocate for the maximum sentence possible, including a ban from owning, having the custody or control of, or residing in the same premises as an animal or a bird for the rest of his and her lives. We make this request recognizing that animals are sentient and vulnerable beings who rely upon the courts to ensure sentences reflect appropriate deterrence and denunciation of people who are convicted of harming them (as well as people who would consider harming them). Further, it has been well-demonstrated in research that people who harm animals have the potential to also harm humans, so our communities will be safer if the courts take animal cruelty seriously and impose meaningful sentences in such cases.
