Please help get the maximum sentence for the woman who starved a 2 year old Great Dane Zack.In late November, 2010 police investigated the house of Farmingdale NY woman Rose Neira,30, due to numerous calls from neighbors on animal cruelty. Upon arrival, police noticed a severely emaciated great dane named Zack. The dog had protruding bones and his spine was sticking out of his back. The dog was brought to Oyster Bay Animal Hospital and despite round the clock surgery and treatments, the dog died 10 days later. This woman said she kept him in the kitchen and only let him out once per night.

I'm not surprised by the PTSD...The apathy shown by the dog-sled company would upset anyone with a heart...and soul...and conscience. There are far too many people in this world who regard animals as nothing more than property...and expendable property at that.
You know, the fact these guys actually videotaped themselves committing this crime...and it should be viewed as a crime by any rational, civilised society....is truly disturbing. The extreme apathy shown to a defenseless animal should be a serious indication to your department that these "officers" would display just as little empathy for another human being.

Hi Val, oh all of these petitions were unbelievably bad but, there were two that really made me so darn mad, I had to go get a glass of wine. The first one was of that darling angel with her legs tied together waiting to be skinned alive. I would LOVE to have found the individual who did that. I would tie them to a tree and set them on fire but, then again, I would not want to hurt THE TREE!!!!!!!!!!!! The second one was the darn pit bulls. I LOVE that breed. My darn county banned them and I never forgave them for it. Oh I know, they could care less about me but, it stil burns my a$$. Sorry guys, I have been doing nothing but, fighting for Waldo to live for ALMOST two weeks and these blank blanks do this to anmals on purpose. They have no right to live if you ask me. They deerve the worst kind of death there is. Maybe just tie all their liimbs together and skin them alive. Well my friends, on that note, I bid you all thank you and good night and sweet dreams. Thanks to you all, I am that much closer to savng Waldo's life. IF ANY of you have a facebook account, I am Dawn Chapdelaine there and would LOVE to have you join my group. Love, Dawn
