    Organization: Puppy Passions Rescue and Transport
    Start Date: 03/20/06
    Stop Date: Ongoing
    Country (if petition applies to a single country): USA
    Signature Goal (number): 500
    URL for more information: (WARNING - GRAPHIC PICS)

    Summary of Petition:


    According to the veterinarian who euthanized Mooie, she was burned over nearly 98% of her body possibly using muriatic acid, an acid used to clean concrete, and used for meth-amphetamine production. The puppy was even forced to drink the acid, burning the inside of her mouth.

    Text of Petition:


    We are writing on behalf of Mooie, the four-month-old Federal Way, WA puppy that was so badly burned by acid that she had to be humanly euthanized by the Veterinarians of Valley Animal Hospital in Auburn, WA.


    Although intentional animal cruelty is a Felony in Washington State, according to Pasado Safe Haven's sources (a Monroe, Washington-based animal welfare agency), King County Animal Control and the Federal Way Police Department cremated the body of the tortured puppy before a necropsy (animal autopsy) or toxicology tests could be conducted. Why did the law enforcement responsible for investigating such a horrible crime threw away the evidence? Surely you know full-well that information gleaned from necropsy and toxicology reports are the corner-stone of any prosecutorís case against a perpetrator? When a Vet Clinic regrets ever having turned over an animal's body to the "proper authorities", is it time to question the authorities' ability to do its job?


    In the past three years there have been three animal cruelty laws passed in Washington State. What good are the laws if the investigators, paid to do their job, choose not to use them?


    Why shouldn't we expect a professional and appropriate protocol for handling physical evidence in animal cruelty cases? Would authorities discard such evidence in a human-related case?


    Does King County Animal Control and the Federal Way Police Department want the person capable of such a hideous act of cruelty freely roaming the streets of our cities and towns among our pets and children?


    The authorities of our court systems have taken an oath of "protecting all God's creatures" and we have the greatest confidence that the law will be set straight for this sweet little dog who suffered so much.

    • New Mooie blog developed to provide forum to seek justice


    Pasado's Safe Haven's sources tell us that Larry Phillips, Chair of the Metropolitan King County Council has called for a full and complete inquiry into the tragic death of Mooie. Writing to King County Executive Ron Sims, Phillips states, "After being contacted by a great number of citizens concerned about King County Animal Control's handling of the recent animal cruelty case...the Council urges prompt and thorough investigation of this tragic and shocking case...These are serious crimes that warrants our government's full attention and careful investigation..."


    Pasado's Safe Haven gratefully acknowledges this effort on the part of the King County Council and hopes that this inquiry exposes the lack of procedures used in animal cruelty investigations. It is our hope that a set standard of protocols, not dissimilar to those used in any violent crime investigation, be identified and implemented. Violence against animals portends violence against humans.


    Police Take Over Case from Animal Control
    According to Pasado sources, your efforts to get this case attention are working. We are told that the Federal Way Police Department is now resuming responsibility for the case. Originally the case fell in their hands (as a felony case should) but they turned it over to King County Animal Control (which cremated the body, destroying critical evidence).


    This Thursday night (3/23/06), The Federal Way Police Department will host their bi-monthly Community Forum. YOU, WE, ALL of us need to be there! It would be so disrespectful to Mooie to have ten or twenty people there. We need EVERYONE who feels passionate about this case be present


    Please join us at 5:00pm for a (peaceful) demonstration outside the Federal Way City Hall Council Chambers. We hope you will consider voicing your opinion in a respectful manner. Remember, YOU are speaking for little Mooie - you are her voice. And we need to represent her well.

    do not adopt to rebecca or tony williams 8:27 AM
    This is not the first time this persons name has come around ... do not adopt/sell/place to/with them... PLEASE CROSSPOST


    Tony & Rebecca Williams (e-mail: ) claim to have a rescue
    in Rocky Mount, NC and are trying to get dogs from all over the Eastern
    Seaboard. (She offered to take 14 dogs since Monday) She continues to take dogs,
    most are pit bulls, with some offers to adopt Presa Canarios, Rottwiellers,
    Dobermans, and Wolf hybrids.
    In addition, she had previously posted that her roommate was looking for a
    Great Dane or Great Dane mix.
    She also posted that she was "desperate" for a Chihuahua and she
    really wanted a Mini Pin and a Jack Russell.

    She claims her rescue is a pit bull rescue, but another pit rescuer
    called the local Animal Control. Animal Control's comments:
    "She's been barred from taking any dogs from the shelters in her area. He
    also said she has a long criminal history, has been selling Pit Bulls on
    street corners for 15 or 20 dollars and has been under investigation for dog

    Atlantic Rescue has now banned her, after finding out this information.
    These are the breeds she has asked for:
    a.. Pit Bulls
    b.. Rottwiellers
    c.. Dobermans
    d.. Presa Canarios
    e.. Tea Cup Chihuahuas
    f.. Jack Russell Terriers
    g.. Shar Peis
    h.. Min Pin
    i.. Great Dane (Pure Breed or Mix)

    She uses the little dogs as bait! Please cross post
    Please check for your breed above and notify all rescues.
    They are going out of their area looking for dogs to adopt.
