Yet again, prior offences for animal cruelty…FFS…WHEN WILL THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM REALISE THAT IF YOU COMMIT ANIMAL ABUSE ONCE, YOUR GOING TO DO IT AGAIN…& IT WILL GET WORSE AS THE PSYCHE OF THESE BASTARDS THINK THEY ARE DOING NOTHING WRONG…THEY ENJOY SEEING ANOTHER PET OR PERSON, CONSIDERED LOWER THAN THEMSELVES…IN PAIN!!!” (I can’t find an update of the preliminary hearing, sorry)

UPPER DARBY — The owner of a small black poodle is facing charges after the dog had to be euthanized because of its poor physical condition, police said.

The dog’s owner, Melissa Lewis, 21, of the 500 block of Timberlake Road, Upper Darby, was arrested and charged with cruelty to animals and related offences for allegedly starving the canine.

“Initially, she said the dog was a stray and followed her home,” police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said. “In reality, the animal warden had been to her home for prior cruelty investigations involving dogs. One of the dogs was a small black poodle so she was not truthful. She abused the dog and caused the dog’s death. It was severely malnourished and underweight with feces-matted fur.

Obviously, this woman should not have control of any animal. This time the dog was having seizures.”

Animal Warden Fred Eckman was called and transported the dog to the Keystone Veterinary Emergency Hospital in Havertown, where the dog suffered additional seizures.

The treating veterinarian recommended the dog be euthanized due to its very poor condition,” Chitwood said.

Eckman transported the poodle to the Delaware County SPCA for a necropsy.

“The veterinarian related that the dog was severely malnourished, underweight and obviously neglected,” Chitwood said. “The veterinarian added that the dog’s seizures could have been triggered by starvation.”

Lewis surrendered to police on Thursday and was arraigned on charges of cruelty to animals, false reports to law enforcement, theft by deception and failure to obtain registration for the dog.

She was released on $20,000 unsecured bail pending a preliminary hearing March 12 in district court.

Delaware SPCA Unable to Take in Cats

Comments Off on Delaware SPCA Unable to Take in Cats

FELTON, Del.- When Kristen Giles found two abused kittens in the middle of Route 113 in Milford, she knew she had to take them home. 

“When I found them, it looked like someone took a lighter to their eyes, they didn’t have any fur around their eyes.

Their eyes wouldn’t open. They were in pretty bad condition. Their spines were showing, they were really skinny,” she said. “We couldn’t get them to eat or drink.

After bringing them to her house she believed the next step for the kittens would be a trip to the Delaware SPCA.

“I just took them and I thought the SPCA would take them the next day and I went there and they wouldn’t take them,” she said.

Kevin Uliston with the Kent County SPCA said Giles should not have been turned away since her kittens were hurt.

“It could have been some miscommunication,” Uliston said. “But if the animal is injured then we do take the cat in, but there is a high risk that the cat will have to be euthanized because there is no cage available this time for any cats.”

Recent high-profile animal abuse cases have flooded the SPCA with cats but the organization does not have the money to take in and care for more animals.

“We could take the cat in but we’d have to euthanize it,” Uliston said. “We’re not in the business to just euthanize animals. We’re trying to find animals homes.”

DOVER, Del. — Authorities in Delaware are searching for a Florida woman accused of crushing three kittens to death with her hands.

The Delaware Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is trying to track down 21-year-old Ashley Barnes, who is charged with three counts of animal cruelty.

Barnes was arrested on April 17 and released on unsecured bond. A warrant was issued for her after she failed to appear for a preliminary hearing on April 25.

SPCA investigator Amy Nicholson says the incident happened on April 6 while Barnes was staying with friends in Millsboro, and that Barnes may have been under the influence of drugs at the time.

Nicholson says Barnes had been staying in Delaware for only about five weeks, and that she may have returned to Florida.
