In a news release, Nicole Wilson, Director of Humane Law Enforcement at the PSPCA, said:
“This case of animal cruelty was particularly jarring. To find a dog at death’s door and subsequently brought back to life shows the dedication of our staff. We are grateful to take this step in bringing the abuser to justice in an effort to ensure no other animals ever meet the same fate. The next step is through the courts to ensure that he is never allowed to own another animal.”
Humane investigators not only found animals living in squalor, including injured dogs with terrible, untreated wounds, they also discovered the remains of three dogs, two of which died from severe bite wounds that were left untreated.
Steven M. Alston must pay for what he put these animals through. Your support is needed to ensure that court officials know that we care about this cruelty case and that we want the maximum punishment and an order prohibiting Alston from ever owning animals again! Please add your name (and comments) today!
Individuals are presumed innocent until being found guilty in a court of law.
