In November, a horrible act of cruelty took place in Union County, New Jersey. A couple moved out of state (to Georgia) leaving their young Husky, Carter, tied to the fence in the backyard.
The Union County Prosecutor's Office identifies Curtis Swan, 27, and Aaleyah Clay, 29, as the individuals who moved away, leaving the dog behind.
The dog was rescued on November 20 after an animal control officer visited a home on the 300 block of White Street to investigate an animal welfare check call. The officer found the husky tied to the fence, with a severe, infected open wound around most of his neck.
Carter, now known as Jon Snow, is safe and recuperating from his injuries, and the couple who abandoned him must be punished for abandoning him! According to the prosecutor's office, Swan and Clay are both charged with third-degree causing serious bodily injury to a domesticated animal via neglect, as well as abandonment of a domesticated animal, a disorderly persons offense. Please sign the petition today to let the judge know that Swan and Clay do not deserve a plea deal! They must receive the maximum punishment for abandoning this dog!
If no one had called, he would have suffered tremendously before dying alone in that back yard.
