Roxy was locked up in a kitchen and abandoned by her owner - trainee lawyer Katy Gammon. Roxy spent six days clawing at the kitchen door until finally she went blind, slipped into a coma and died. The five-year-old boxer was eventually found, maggot-infested, 10 weeks later. The traumatised RSPCA inspector was forced to scrape this tragic creature off the floor with a shovel.

We want as many signatures as possible to ensure that she goes to prison and that poor Roxy gets justice. Thank you!
