Awsom Animals is asking concerned people to draft correspondence to The Honorable John Whitesell urging him to bestow the maximum sentence upon a resident who starved three of his German Shepherds to death.
“I have very seldom in my life experienced true blue hate,” states Rodica Prusan Angel, who is behind the movement. “But this is one of the rare instances.”
Letters are to be sent to Judge Whitesell, P.O. Box 213, Mountain Home, PA 18342. The defendant’s name is Peter Zervas and he is the owner of the Blue Comet Diner in Hazelton.
Zervas is scheduled to stand trial March 30.
There were six remaining German Shepherds who were left in emaciated condition that rescuers from Awsom Animals took in and donations are being accepted at awsomanimals.org. Volunteers named the canines Hope, Faith Van, Falco, Foxxy, Hero, and Braveheart.
In other pet news, an email alert has been issued by Eyes of an Angel Pet Rescue and Word Press that animal rescue groups should not work with Spotted Dog Rescue a.k.a. Kelsey Marie Wiese to obtain more dogs.
“It is after some thought that we have decided that we must share this note and warning with all of you,” the email from Eyes of an Angel states. “We are one of the groups in South Florida that helped clean up her mess when she was Spotted Dog Rescue and finally lost it and said she was having the dogs euthanized if no one took them.”
