Great RI animal welfare laws ! NOT!
Nationwide media attention on this Amelia Ferreira dog killing case and all this does is teach animal abusers that they can kill a dog, put it outside to decompose in a plastic bag and not be charged with animal abuse. Amelia Ferreira of Cranston, RI has dogs of her own and she's not even going to be punished appropriately by having her own dogs removed and/or losing her job ???
Ferreira works for Off Leash K9 Training LLC...
#OffLeashK9TrainingLLC Dog Obedience Training
Off Leash K9 Training ⚠️🔴"is known for the high level of obedience in real world environments; however, we also specialize in behavioral modification, nosework/detection, protection, service and therapy dog certifications, and K9 tracking training! Give your dog the professional dog training he/she needs to be a happy member of your household. Create a more comfortable environment for your family with an obedient dog." ⚠️🔴
How does this training facility screen the "high level" trainers? Why are they using SHOCK COLLARS TO TRAIN DOGS? An "E-COLLAR' is just a nice term for what they really are, SHOCK COLLARS. Did the dog drop dead of a heart attack from the collar? The shock collar was found outside on an open trail with no signs of it being forcibly removed. So who took it off --and why? Did the dog die right there on the trail because of that shock collar? Does anyone know if this company's Providence office location is also behind the cover-up???
Scientific Evidence Outlining the Concerns with the Use of Electric Shock
Amelia Ferreira and the owners of Off Leash K9 Training LLC should be put on trial in front of a jury to get the truth out regarding exactly what happened to KNOX! How many other dogs has Ferreira and other Off Leash Trainers tortured and abused?
A much closer look needs to be taken of the dog training facility and how they do their trainer hiring. What background checks did they run on Ferreira? Did Off Leash K9 management ever visit Ferreira's home and do wellness checks? Did Off Leash K9 ever visit Ferreira's home to see how she cares for dogs? What were Ferreira's professional dog training qualifications? What does her resume look like? When the RISPCA went to Ferreira's home they: "seized five Maltese dogs from Ferreira's home. The dogs were living in the basement, matted and dirty, according to the agency."
