Sign the Petition to

Mayor David Gillock

I urge you to immediately fire and prosecute North Ridgeville Humane Officer Barry Accorti for shooting and killing a litter of kittens instead of trapping them and taking them to a shelter or cat rescue for possible adoption. The officer had no right to draw his weapon in front of the homeowner and her children and then kill this litter of kittens. He must pay the consequences of his irresponsible actions. Thank you for taking swift action on this tragic event. 

Signed,

Ohio SPCA

OHIO - On June 10, 2013, North Ridgeville Humane Officer Barry Accorti shot and killed a litter of kittens in front of a distraught homeowner and her children inside the home. He told the homeowner that "the shelters were full and that these cats would be going to kitty heaven." Accorti then retrieved his gun from his truck and shot and killed five 8 to 10 week-old kittens within feet of the home. The Ohio SPCA is demanding that Officer Accorti be fired and prosecuted for animal cruelty. There is no reason for this violence against kittens, and in front of children no less! Let's make Mayor David Gillock know that he needs to take immediate action and fire Officer Accorti.
