Sign the Petition to

Memphis - City Prosecutors Office, Memphis Animal Services

We the undersigned demand that Marcus Curry is charged with Animal cruelty after causing the death of his little German Shepherd/ mix puppy.

Marcus Curry is currently being held on $40,000 bond after having been charged with aggravated animal cruelty after leaving his tiny German Shepherd in the dishwasher 'too long' before dumping its dead body in a trash can on Wednesday June 26th.

Marcus Curry poses a risk to other innocent animals, and he needs to be dealt with in Court and face the harshest sentence possible which is -  a Class E felony which is punishable with a fine up to $3,000 and/or imprisonment up to 6 years.

Sincerely...

Signed,

Orange for Animal Cruelty Awareness
