Michelle DiGennaro of Mohegan Lake, New York, is facing an animal cruelty charge for starving a senior dog named Boomer. Please sign the petition to hold DiGennaro accountable for the severe neglect that Boomer endured!
SPCA of Westchester Humane Law Enforcement Unit found Boomer in dismal condition - the old dog was allegedly being kept in an outdoor enclosure, deprived of food, water and veterinary care. By the time that Boomer was rescued, he weighed just 24 pounds - half of what a dog his size should weigh. Aside from being skeletal, Boomer had severe ear infections, horribly overgrown nails and untreated luxating patella’s and arthritis.
Shannon Laukhuf, SPCA Executive Director, said, "We are extremely grateful that someone called to report about Boomer, who must have been suffering for months. Thanks to the SPCA’s team, Boomer is now receiving the love and medical care he was so cruelly denied.”
Please sign this petition asking for officials to hold DiGennaro accountable for her actions! Boomer suffered a sad existence for far too long.
