Help Peppy:

Dunkirk, NY
Sixteen year-old female Husky named Peppy has called her 10.5' length by 3.0' width x 3.5' height outdoor metal cage home for nine years.  Her living situation was noticed three year ago.  Offers were made to buy her, walk her, build a fence in the yard and so on.  The owner has yet to take people up on their offer.  Dunkirk animal control and cruelty investigator were contacted regarding Peppy's living conditions, they responded by saying her living conditions were legal.  The entire metal enclosure is off the ground and roughly consists of five feet of metal grate flooring in which Peppy stands on.  The owners states she is a "deer tracking dog" and that he took her out every Saturday to track deer--3 yrs ago.  Her age and arthritis (which she is taking medication for) may be preventing her from doing this anymore.  According to a neighbor Peppy is taken out of the cage only a few times a week.  Continuously walking on a metal grate floor and taking medication for arthritis equals an uncomfortable and excruciating situation for her.  Not to mention the constant exposure to the outdoor elements and lack of socialization.Recently, pictures were taken of her and shared in order to get her help.  The bottom line is to either get media attention for this situation, or a public outcry....this issue is similar in how puppy mill dogs live.  

Kindly contact the following asking for Peppy to be released to a loving rescue or for her conditions to be greatly improved:

We the undersigned respectfully ask you to consider releasing Peppy to a loving rescue or to greatly improve her living conditions.  She is an elder dog with a health problem.  Keeping her outdoors in New York's seasonal elements and forcing her to walk on grated metal flooring in a tiny enclosure is not suitable.
