Sign the Petition to

Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan

We the undersigned demand that you prosecute - Shane Santiago and Laura Acampora - for running a DOG FIGHTING RING from their home in which they shared with their 5 young children.
The house has been dubbed a “House of Horrors” after what was found at the scene. “This was a full-scale operation of not only dog fighting, but dog training, dog breeding and dog killing.”
Santiago has confessed to killing at least 10 of his dogs, including one dog that he hanged after it bit his daughter. Santiago and Acampora are charged with more than 30 counts of animal cruelty, endangering the welfare of a child, and conspiracy to commit animal cruelty.
We the undersigned are calling on law enforcement, legislators, and the citizens of both Pennsylvania and the United States to stamp out this barbaric sport. Please ensure that Shane Santiago and Laura Acampora are held accountable for their violent acts of cruelty and prosecuted to the FULL extent of the Law so that it might serve as a warning to other Dog Fighting rings.
Sincerely..

Signed,

Jayne Cvetanoski

You can help the 6 dogs seized from this dog fighting crime scene.
