Urge Authorities in Guyana to Rescue Chronically Abused Dog

We’ve been alerted to a viral video reportedly captured on July 7, in Georgetown, Guyana, depicting an adult male beating a small dog viciously and repeatedly with an object (possibly a shoe) using great force as the animal screams in agony and neighbors helplessly yell for the abuser to stop. The abuser also picks up the dog by the collar and violently swings the small animal around like a ragdoll. Neighbors claim that this type of abuse is typical at the residence, allegedly occurring daily, and that the canine victim displayed swelling of the face after this particular attack. The Guyana Animal Welfare Act of 2018 states, “No person shall subject any animal to unnecessary pain or intentionally expose an animal to a condition that causes or is likely to cause pain, suffering, fear, or injury.”

Despite all this, PETA caseworkers who have repeatedly implored authorities to rescue this vulnerable dog are being ignored, so now it’s your turn!

This disturbing video was reportedly captured on July 7.

Please politely urge the following Guyana authorities to seize the dog immediately and to take any other action deemed appropriate. Then share this alert with everyone you know!

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
