A woman in Minnesota had founded an organization that was apparently supposed to be an animal rescue shelter. Instead, her "For Furever"
facilities lead to the deaths of multiple dogs - and now she's facing 22 counts of animal cruelty for her deadly neglect.Sign the petition to demand justice!
When investigators arrived, they discovered eight dead dogs on the premises.
Multiple other dogs were still alive - but that was more through luck than anything else, because apparently they were living in squalid, filthy conditions. Feces and urine had contaminated the area, leaving animals to run around on floors that were "covered in excrement." At the same time, she had kept the dogs confined in areas that did not have any water or food.
Additionally, some of the animals had contracted serious viruses that become deadly when left untreated - but are, in fact, highly treatable. The organization's owner admitted to authorities that she did not take them to a licensed veterinarian for medical help, leaving them to suffer painfully and slowly before they ultimately died.
Authorities seized 22 living dogs, none of which were considered sufficiently healthy to adopt out just yet. Every single last dog required serious behavioral interventions or medical treatment, but luckily they are receiving that now.
It's wonderful that authorities intervened and ultimately rescued these 22 dogs before they succumbed to death, too. But now we must make sure that this negligent business owner is never allowed near pets again, in order to keep them safe and alive.Sign the petition to demand that Minnesota authorities protect other animals from death by banning the owner of "For Furever" from working, living with, or owning pets again in the future!
