{bo & luke} – the trial is here!

by

Remember Bo & Luke?

Our sweet, sweet rescue pups from Mobile, AL?

When they first came joined us in rescue they looked like this:

These boys had been left behind when their old owner moved out of his rental home.

Bo was left in a crate too small for him, Luke left tied to a tree.

Both left without food and water.

For 4+ weeks.

 They were left to die.

*     *     *     *     *

On Monday, December 12th the gentlemen whose name is engraved on the collars these pups are wearing {see above photos} will be in court.

He is being charged with second degree animal cruelty, a misdemeanor charge in the state of Alabama.

At his last court appearance in May he pled “not guilty”.

Somehow, we seem to think otherwise.

*     *     *     *     *

We are pushing to get his charged upped to a felony charged based on Gucci’s Law (The Alabama Pet Protection Act) which passed in Alabama in 2000. This law allows for animal cruelty in the first degree to be  a Class C felony “if he or she intentionally tortures any dog or cat” (Code of Alabama 13A-11-241(a)). Currently, his charges consist of a Class A misdemeanor for cruelty to a dog or cat in the second degree.

*     *     *     *     *

If you’re in the Mobile/Saraland, AL area on MONDAY, DECEMBER 12th – will you join us?

We will have signs to support sweet Bo & Luke and would love to fill the courtroom in a show of support for these sweet pups. But we need help holding signs and handing out fliers!

If you can’t join us in Alabama on Monday, can you join us in sending positive thoughts and prayers our way?

Please email us at bonniebluerescue@gmail.com for more information on the upcoming court date and how you can help!

    I hope it doesn’t take more than looking at those pitiful pictures to convict him. Too bad our system is way to easy on animal abuse victims. May these babies know a happy life and may the man never!

  4. Paula Feldmeier Says:

    I cannot be there in person but will be there in spirit. Do we have the prosecuting attorney’s info — can we write them on Bo and Luke’s behalf asking for this creep to be charged with a felony?

    Would love to come over and be there for Bo and Luke. Our laws are not strong enough to prevent this from happening. People know they will just get a slap on the wrist.

  11. Pat henry Says:

    I can’t there in body but will be in spirit. God gave man charge over the animals to lead them, protect, love, train NOT injure in body or mind. God be with you on 25th and every day.

    Thank you for your support of these animals. Do you have any new pictures to share? We are in Oxford, Alabama and a little far but I will call the office of the Judge and leave a message.

    Need to get the laws changed so these so called citizens will learn they cannot get away with this, dang, at least let them run free to find food and water…and a rescuer!!!! Wow, this makes me sick!!!

  14. sally fairchild Says:

    If i did’nt live in Kentucky i would be there with bells on. This kind of crulety is unexceptable and uncalled for. I say put him in a cage that is to small for him and leave him there. Wish i could be there to support Bo and Luke.

  15. LoriLove Says:

    I live in Alabama, very close to Saraland were these dogs were found……I am amazed every day at the ignorance of people about animals. There is never enough done to people like this. Just look at the millionaire football players that their injustices are just swept under the rug. Well, they will get their day if its not by a judge in a court, believe me they will have to answer in a higher court!!!
    For GOD created the animals on earth!!!!
