State Police Arrest Report For Eugene M. McQuade Who Faces 23 Charges of Animal Abuse Against 11 Pit Bulls.
Below is the PDF file attachment which includes the State Police arrest report and charges of animal cruelty filed against Eugene M. McQuade: 50 Downing St East Greenwich & 525 Hill Farm Rd Coventry, RI.
The 11 pit bulls were found spread out across three different properties.
The 525 Hill Farm Rd property in Coventry, is on the tax rolls as an LLC owned by Owner: 4400 POST LLC
Address: 50 DOWNING ST EAST GREENWICH.
Here is the 50 Downing St East Greenwich address.
Other dogs were found at a newly purchased property also owned as an LLC under 4400 POST LLC/ 50 Downing Street located at 350 Stony Ln, Exeter..
How does unemployed, 35 year old and single Eugene M. McQuade Jr. afford all of these properties? Who else owns all of these properties? Who else is LIABLE for those poor dogs?
Hmmmmmm....... another game of connect the dots . . . .

As previously posted, Eugene M. McQuade, long time friend and associate of pit bull breeder Clifford Dennis of 66 Potowomut Ave Warwick/ 409 Toll Gate Rd, assisted Dennis with obtaining and purchasing various items for Clifford Dennis's dogs via donations received from the public. After Dennis and McQuade purchased and took all of the items for the dogs, they then claimed they wanted no further assistance from the public. At the time, McQuade had shared with the animal volunteer attempting to assist, that 2 additional younger sibling pit bulls were having issues because 1 of the sibling pups wasn't eating due to being "food bullied" by the other sibling, and it was malnourished and needed veterinarian care.
The outstanding question remains: how many of those 11 pit bulls left out in the cold once again on McQuade's properties belonged to Clifford Dennis?
As of the first week of January 2018, Dennis had shared with the Warwick Police, Warwick Animal Control and the Warwick Animal Shelter that he had relocated 3 adult pit bulls somewhere in Coventry, while the Warwick Animal Shelter took care of another 3 of Dennis's pit bulls. The Warwick Animal Shelter eventually released the 3 pit bulls back to Dennis.
Dennis later claimed he gave all 6 pit bulls away and sold all of the puppies.
No one ever verified where all of the pit bulls went.
A records request was submitted to the city of Warwick in December requesting the : Total number of police/fire/rescue calls that have responded to any Warwick school in regards to issues with students involved with any of the following:
Total number of times the Warwick police responded: 139.
(This number also includes incidents reported to the onsite School Resource Officers.)
Total number of times Warwick fire responded for this time period: 30.
A high percentage of Warwick City DPW workers have criminal records.

When any city worker jokes about Warwick taxpayers being "target practice"--- THE GLOVES COME OFF ON THIS PAGE.
Tallying up personal property damage made by a plow truck? Is that right? Another free pass Mayor?
EVERY GOOD CITIZEN IN THIS CITY HAS THE RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT YOUR TAX DOLLARS ARE FUNDING-- AND IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE EXPOSED.
Flamand was hired December 2006- in May 2007 he distributed cocaine to a Warwick undercover police officer. In 2013- Flamand committed another crime with drugs- possession w delivery intent while working for the City. The City needs to have a better hiring screening process, and any City employees who are arrested and convicted for committing crimes --should BE FIRED.
How many of the loyalist city employee cronies would like this page to keep going with all the history?
THE MAKE UP OF ANY BODY --ITS INTEGRITY IS ONLY JUDGED BY THE INDIVIDUALS THAT MAKE UP THAT BODY.
These people come on to our property, are responsible for managing our resources and our assets. --- some have been charged with B & E's DUI's- domestic violence-- theft of vehicle parts, theft of City materials, drug dealing and possession---whether you like it or not-- THIS IS THE OPINION OF WARWICK WATCH- take it or leave but one thing will continue to be exposed--- the complete lack of accountability in this city.
ONCE SOMEONE IS HIRED BY THE CITY-- WHAT'S THE LEVEL OF TOLERANCE FOR HOW MANY TIMES A CITY WORKER CAN BE ARRESTED AND STILL BE ABLE TO KEEP THEIR JOB? Once? Twice? Three times?
Why isn't the video footage from the City DPW yard being LIVE STREAMED 24/7?
If you have nothing to hide-- be completely transparent.
If City workers have nothing to hide, they will have no issues with GPS being installed in all City vehicles. If any City employee has a problem with that-- they should be fired.
The City admin needs to conduct a full scale forensic audit starting with the city DPW department.
Everything will be questioned, exposed and published to the public.
Professionalism in the City of Warwick...
Below is the screen shot of a post made by a Warwick DPW worker -Brian Butler- who brags about target practice with a City plow truck of people outside in the freezing cold snow blowing their driveways. He also brags about (with pleasure) the destruction of taxpayer property as he's out plowing the streets of Warwick.
This is what happens to a City that hasn't had the proper leadership for years...
We have a Mayor that could care less and he's never around.
This is why city vehicles need a GPS system installed in them...so it's documented as to where a city worker is, and which vehicle that city worker is operating.
Getting Back that Toll Gate Road Situation...The State vs The City of Warwick When It Comes To Dog Breeding Licensing
Pit bull breeder Clifford Dennis over on Toll Gate road never had a breeder's license filed with the State of RI/DEM.
Everything that has, or is occurring on Toll Gate as far as breeding goes, is because the City of Warwick Animal Shelter has authorized it via breeding permits. Breeding permits were found to be expired on more than one occasion when police responded to complaints that were made regarding this breeder/property.
The state has its own laws regarding breeding licensing, yet the state law allows cities and towns or town councils to: "make any ordinances concerning dogs in their cities or towns as they deem expedient."
THE CITY OF WARWICK CAME UP WITH ITS OWN ORDINANCE THAT DIRECTLY ADDRESSES THE OVER BREEDING OF AMERICAN PIT BULL/STAFFODSHIRE TERRIERS -EUTHANASIA WAS NOT ACCEPTABLE OR ETHICAL DUE TO THE LARGE POPULATION OF THESE DOGS.
THE CITY OF WARWICK DEVELOPED A LICENSED SYSTEM FOR BREEDING AND SPAYING-NEUTERING OF THE PITBULL/STAFFODSHIRE TERRIERS.
ON AT LEAST TWO OCCASIONS, PIT BULL BREEDER CLIFFORD DENNIS WAS BREEDING PIT BULLS WITH EXPIRED BREEDING PERMITS , HOWEVER THE CITY NEVER REVOKED HIS PERMITS/LICENSE FOR BEING IN VIOLATION OF SECTION 4-128.
CITY OF WARWICK CODE OF ORDINANCES REGARDING THE BREEDING OF AMERICAN PIT BULL & STAFFODSHIRE TERRIERS.
THESE ORDINANCES ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE WARWICK ANIMAL SHELTER DIRECTOR W/THE ASSISTANCE OF ANIMAL CONTROL:
CITY OF WARWICK HAS ITS OWN SHELTERING/TETHERING OF DOGS ORDINANCE:
Sec. 4-20. - Sheltering, tethering and nourishment of dogs.
(a) No person shall allow a dog to be kept outside tethered, penned, caged, fenced, or otherwise confined for more than 30 minutes without access to adequate shelter or adequate water or food for use by such dog.
(b) No person shall allow a dog to be kept outside tethered, penned, caged, fenced, or otherwise confined for more than 30 minutes when the ambient temperature is beyond the industry standard for the weather safety scale as set forth in the most recently adopted version of the Tufts Animal Care and Conditions Scale (TACC).

UPDATE on Toll Gate Property- How In The World Could The City of Warwick Allow This To Carry On For So Long?
Warwick Watch submitted a records request to the City of Warwick on December 18th requesting all police and animal control reports that have responded to the Toll Gate property since the 2010 incidence when 15 pit bulls were taken from the breeder. That 2010 incident report is below. At that time, the outdoor temperature was noted to be 26 degrees Fahrenheit with wind speeds of 20.7 mph. All 15 pit bulls were secured by heavy tow chains, in front of dog houses, with some hay in them. It was noted at that time that it was not adequate enough shelter for the dogs due to the weather conditions and because of their breed. Dennis' logic to justify the situation was that basically no dog has ever died.
Since 2010, there have been numerous police reports filed by concerned citizens calling in with complaints regarding the conditions of pit bulls on this very same property. Some of those most notable complaints are posted below.
What is most important to note is that since the incident occurred on 2010, the breeder, Clifford Dennis had expired breeder's permits not one, but TWICE--- that we know of, that's been documented, only because it just so happened that someone complained and police had to respond.
As you all recall , Warwick Watch recently posted copies of the breeder's permits for the 6 pit bulls that were all just filed on December 9, 2017. It's because Dennis's breeder's permits were expired! That's the only reason why the dogs were all permitted on the same day, because they were expired and he had to get it done! Instead of the City taking the dogs away for Clifford Dennis being in violation for expired breeder's permits yet again, the City let it slide. Dennis also states as indicated in the report that the 7 puppies (that were on the property as of 12/9/2017) will be moving to their BUYERS' homes in the next couple of weeks. As you recall he has repeatedly stated he "gives the dogs away."
Two weeks later, when more complaints were coming in that the dogs were chained up and continuously exposed to harsh weather conditions, only 2 puppies out of the 7 were remaining on the property, along with 6 adult pit bulls when the property was inspected yet again.
If the dogs did not even have up to date breeder's permits on them - as of December 8th 2017, and there was never any breeder's license filed by Dennis with the State of RI/DEM-- how in the hell are these dogs "hunting dogs?"
OH, and there's more...
In addition-- as you will see below--- the property itself-- 409 Toll Gate Rd has been found to be violating City code 26-553 by the City Division of Property Maintenance for failing to register this property with a "Vacant Property Registration" that ..... wait for it..... has been expired since November 25, 2015!!!
Warwick Watch is absolutely disgusted, appalled and utterly heartbroken that this disgusting existence of a dog breeding operation has been going on in our City for this long on this disgusting, condemned, eye sore of a property..
The MAYOR should be EMBARRASSED!!!
SHAME ON YOU SCOTT AVEDISIAN!
It is unacceptable!
Everyone, if you don't ask questions, if you don't dig, if you don't act on your concerns, if you don't back down-- the horrors and injustices that exist in our community will never be uncovered! I am truly heartbroken and upset and appalled that this is the type of City we live in. There is no accountability no matter which way Warwick Watch turns. It's terrible.
I wonder where those little puppies went, I think about those dogs being chained like that for so long, my heart breaks.
How could the City allow this to happen?
It MUST END!!! Make it happen people!!!! Warwick Watch can't do it alone!
Keep checking in on those dogs!!!! Keep fighting for what's right...please.
Response from RIDEM today: "At this point the Department of Environmental Management does not have sufficient evidence to believe that he has sold a sufficient number of dogs to require that he obtains a breeder license."
If he is just giving dogs away that he breeds, does that mean anyone can just breed dogs in RI, give them away anywhere in the country, and not be a licensed breeder? "Someone who gives dogs away is exempt from the requirement of licensure as a breeder. The provisions of 4-19, as stated in 4-19-1 which states the purpose of this chapter, focuses on dogs and cats that are in commerce or in licensed facilities. If a person doesn’t meet the threshold of animals that requires licensure, we can’t force that person to be licensed. To my knowledge, no state requires licensure of breeders if that breeder doesn’t sell their dogs."
How often are inspections of breeding "facilities" required on an annual basis? "As mentioned earlier, the breeder license requirement is new. We do not currently have any licensed breeders, but we have at least one in the process of seeking a license. We will conduct an inspection of any facility seeking a license prior to the first license being issued for any facility. We have authority to conduct random unannounced inspections of any licensed facility during stated business hours. We conduct inspections of licensed facilities whenever we receive a credible complaint and we stop in for random inspections as scheduling allows. The standards for licensed facilities can be found at http://sos.ri.gov/documents/archives/regdocs/released/pdf/DEM/9070.pdf . I want to reiterate that these regulations only apply to licensed facilities. They are not applicable to Mr. Dennis unless it is determined that he is required to be licensed as a breeder. "
Currently, pit bull breeder Clifford Dennis has a breeders permit for SIX pit bulls that are registered with the City of Warwick.
According to state law Title 4 Chapter 4-19 "Animal Care," a Breeder is defined as: 10) "Breeder" means a person engaged in the propagation of purebred or crossbred dogs and/r cats for the purpose of improving and enhancing a breed recognized and registered by the American Kennel Club, American Field Stud Book, a registered cat breed association, or for sale at wholesale or retail, unless otherwise exempted as a hobby breeder as defined below.
A "Hobby Breeder" is defined as: "Hobby breeder" means those persons whose regular occupation is not the breeding and raising of dogs and cats and whosemethod of sale is at retail only. A hobby breeder shall not exceed the limits set forth in § 4-25-1(4). Any person who sells at retail a number in excess of the limits in the aforementioned section shall be considered a breeder.
Per DEM: If Dennis is in fact breeding dogs, he would be required to be licensed pursuant to a new law, passed this fall, that requires breeders to be licensed as a “breeder” if they sell in excess of three litters per calendar year, or twenty puppies per calendar year.
Dennis has a breeder's permit for all six pit bulls. The next question becomes-- how has the City of Warwick been tracking the SALE of pit bulls as a result of the 6 pit bulls being used for breeding purposes? In order to be a licensed "breeder" Dennis would have to be selling more than 3 litters per calendar year or 20 puppies per calendar year. How is the City tracking the sale of pit bull puppies from this breeder or any other breeder in the City???
Mr. Dennis has claimed (what he said to SPCA) is he only uses 2 of the six pit bulls for breeding purposes... that means just 2 pit bulls would have to have at least 20 pit bull puppies per year in order to satisfy the breeding permit provisions. How is the City tracking the puppies that are being sold from this breeder in order to qualify as a registered breeder??
