Hope, cruelly abused and thrown away, faced the worst of humanity and somehow, miraculously, managed to survive. But her survival was short-lived. Shared just hours ago by those who worked so hard to save her precious life,

Very heartbreaking. She was so loved by many in the last time of her life by all those wonderful people who tried to save her and by all of us on the internet here. Although we never touched her,knew her in way, she touched us all in our hearts.

Very sadly noted. At the very least, as the article stated, she finally found people who appreciated and loved her. RIP Hope.

I signed the petition on July 22...I pray it helps.

I am shedding more than a tear, and I will be lighting a candle.
Hope touched my heart and many others-she knew we loved her.

I saved the photo the other will remind me of Hope and her beautiful soul and spirit.

Rest In Forever Peace Our Beloved Hope.

Isn't there someway we can further pressure Judge Davis into more than a $15,000 bond (only peanut-portion required up front for release) and a "must stay away from animals" charge ,,, like cash fine, community service, addition to or creation of Animal Abuse Registry for public viewing so that all will know Monterion Dionte Davis for what he is. (How is not-near animals to be enforced?)

There can never be true justice for the monster that did this, our twisted society won't allow it. RIP Hope.

It is so heartbreaking that poor Hope could not be saved. Thankfully she was surrounded at the end by unconditional love and will be across the Rainbow Bridge in peace and safe away from her tormentor. May her legacy live on and may the offender who did this terrible crime be punished to the full extent of the law. I will light a candle and say a prayer in memory of Hope.

petition signed for Hope on CARE2 and against the murderer on CHANGE.ORG. It's really heartbreaking. I hope this man will be condemned to death. That's all he deserves and it's even too kind!!
