Petition to City Of Dunlap TN

Second Chance Animal Shelter Petition

Greetings citizens of Dunlap TN. My name is Krysti Miller. Like you I have been a member of Dunlap for many years now. During these years, I have noticed countless animals being abandoned, mistreated and even dropped off in the middle of the woods to fend for themselves. Nothing seems to be getting done about this. This town treats every member like family, and yet many of us are forgetting about the four legged members of that family. Many people believe that animals do not have feelings; but I beg to differ. I have worked with and along side animals my entire life and have seen these emotions first hand.  I have seen a mother horse go into a fit of depression after loosing her newborn foal. I have witnessed a dog yelping in pain for days after being hit by a car and having several bones broken in the process. I have witnessed the excitement of an animal that has been left alone all day, after its beloved owner returned. I have witnesses animals lashing out, and cowering in a corner of a cage in fear...Against many of your beliefs, animals do have feelings. God did not give us these animals for us to abuse them. We need to put in the time and effort to help our four legged family members who have no one to look out for them. We need to look out for the ones who have been randomly dumped because their family either cant afford to take care of them, or just had a baby and no longer wants them. We need to look after the ones who end up being dumped and get shot for doing nothing but going through someone's garbage trying to find some way to feed themselves when they are used to their family making meals for them. I have seen many new business' and buildings being made in this town, like the small water area now in Harris Park. While I believe it is a great idea to give kids that area to enjoy, I also find myself wondering...is that really nessacary? Why build something that will only be used during the spring and summer months, when we can be using those resources to create something that will help and be used year round during EVERY month and season.I ask you, please help me in making a difference. Please help me make a home for our forgotten family members and give them the same second chance that we all deserve. Thank you.

Petition to The Honorable Governor Andrew Cuomo, Columbia Greene Humane Society, Paul Czajka, District Attorney Columia County, N.Y., Stephen Barry, Assistant District Attorney, The Honorable Letita James, Attorney General New York State, Matthew Bershadker, CEO

STOP the Animal Neglect in Columbia County, N.Y.

This petition " STOP the Animal Neglect in Columbia County, N.Y" is being sent to The Honorable Andrew Cuomo to request the Governor's help to finally end the Animal Neglect in Columbia, County, N.Y.  In Columbia County, Columbia Greene Humane Society "may" investigate reports re: Animal Neglect in Columbia/Greene Counties, and the Police "must" investigate all reports of Animal Neglect. Paul Czajka, District Attorney Columbia County is  "responsible" to investigate alleged crimes in cooperation with law enforcement, and file criminal charges or bringing "all" evidence before the Grand Jury. The overt Animal Neglect in Columbia County at one farm has been ongoing since 2014 despite numerous complaints by the public to the authorities, police intervention and arrest, eye witness testimony, photos, videos, expert testimony, shipping records, sales receipts, and other indisputable evidence. It appears Columbia County is becoming "well known" by the Equine Community and General Public for failing to enforce the New York State Agriculture & Markets Animal Cruelty laws at one very well known "Hoarder" and "Animal Abuser" operating under the guise of a "horse rescue". We the people, respectfully request Columbia Greene Humane Society, New York State Police, and the Columbia County District Attorney's Office investigate, file charges, and prosecute the violator of the NYSAGM Animal Cruelty laws and finally "STOP the Animal Neglect ongoing in Columbia County, N.Y." The children in the community don't understand why the authorities are not helping the suffering, neglected and abused horses, and the Adults have no rationale explanation to give the children. Maybe somebody can explain to the "Public" the reason why the authorities appear to "allowing" the ongoing Animal Neglect of these horses in Columbia County, N.Y. and why they are not stopping it ? Please sign the petition to " STOP the Animal Neglect in Columbia County, N.Y." and restore the Public's trust in the authorities and the judicial system, and more importantly finally "help" the suffering horses. Perhaps the "Public" should withhold  "supporting" any Animal Welfare Group in the "area" where the ongoing Animal Cruelty violations are occurring until it finally ends.  Hopefully, the Honorable Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York State and his staff will "remind" the local authorities of their responsibility to enforce the New York State Agriculture and Markets laws prohibiting Animal Cruelty. Thank you for signing this petition to help the horses at one well known, disgraceful horse farm located in Columbia County, N.Y. where the horses are intentionally being "starved" and they are "not" recent rescues as portrayed. If you see something, say something, or the painful suffering of these horses will continue forever.  Thank you in advance for your anticipated support.
