START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good
Jan 23, 2008

Dear Animal Loving Friends, Many people have been horrified by the recent cruelty case in  Plainville,  CT in which Saverino Cruz took a power drill and brutally drilled several holes  into  a dog's head. Our Companions has received many calls and emails from heart-sick animal lovers asking what they can do to help pursue justice for this unthinkable crime.  We have been in touch with the Plainville Animal Control Department and have been advised that there are ways that you can make a difference.  1) Attend the Hearing that is  scheduled  for Thursday, February 14th at 9AM at Bristol Superior Court. (131 North   Main Street, Bristol, CT  06010 ). A large show of public support to prosecute Mr. Cruz  to  the fullest extent of the law would help make an important statement about the serious nature of this crime. 2) Write to the Prosecutor Steven Preleski (same address as the Superior Court) and encourage him to seek the maximum punishment for this crime. 3) Consider adopting a pitbull. The Plainville Shelter has several loving pitbulls that are in desperate need of a home. You can help this very misunderstood and needy breed by opening your heart and home to a homeless dog.  Check out Lucky, just one of the many sweet and loving  pitbulls that desperately needs a good home.  4) Please forward this email to your animal loving friends and encourage them to also take action! Thank you for caring and I hope you can attend the hearing on 2-14-08

Are there other ways to help the pit bull cause? im am a Pit co/owner and a rottie owner and am finding that these poor breeds are just getting so downtrodden that I am having difficulties in my apartment building with another tennant who is spreading negative gossip. What can I do to get the massage out there!
