Why this is important

WYTHE COUNTY, VA: DOGS IN THE BOX SUFFERING FOR 5 YEARS. THESE DOGS HAVE NEVER HAD HUMAN CONTACT, FETCHED A BALL, GONE ON A WALK, RAN ON THE GRASS, BEEN SOCIALIZED OR HAVE BEEN PROPERLY LOVED AND ATTENDED TO. THEY HAVE BEEN SILENCED IN A BOX AND FORCED TO LIVE IN ABSOLUTE HELL.

For 5 years, EVERYONE has turned a blind eye to this. These dogs are living in a makeshift dungeon, held up by wooden planks, rusted metal and tarps. There are no windows, no light, no fresh air. They are living in their own feces and urine, covered in fleas, in very tight quarters. One, if not more, has already died from anemia due to the abundance of fleas. Could you even begin to imagine how painful his or her suffering and death was? Would you let your animals live in such conditions? Raid is used to "clean." That is extremely dangerous for the dogs to inhale and be around. There is no proper shelter, food, water (there is no running water on the property, nor electricity) and exercise, ALL necessities a dog needs. They are being held captive, IN A BOX, for what purpose? This is NOT a life, and this is NOT LEGAL. This is ANIMAL CRUELTY and according to VA's law, he is breaking it. Why are you allowing this disgusting abuse to continue? Why haven't you stepped in as Governor of Virginia and put an end to this inhumane treatment? HE IS BREAKING THE LAW, and you are letting it happen. We beg you to enforce Virginia's Animal Cruelty Law and have your citizens abide by it. If they don't, then they need to be charged with ANIMAL CRUELTY, and shall no longer be able to ever own an animal companion again. This is disgraceful. FREE THESE DOGS IMMEDIATELY.

IN GENERAL, no breathing, living soul in this world should ever endure such abuse, neglect and torture at the hands of a human being, whether it be leaving an animal tethered its whole life, physically abused, intentionally neglected, not given ADEQUATE shelter, food and water, or being left outside in harsh elements (freezing temperatures/extreme heat). This is ABUSE, this needs to be ILLEGAL. We demand a law be put in place, and be properly enforced and carried out.
