On Thursday, KC Pet Project made a joyful announcement to Facebook followers about an abused dog named “Roadrunner.” The organization stated, “Justice for Roadrunner! The former owner of the little dog, Roadrunner, who came to KC Pet Project in November 2014, plead guilty to felony and misdemeanor charges of animal abuse and abandonment today.”
Roadrunner was severely injured after being hurled from a third floor balcony and strangled with his leash – his injuries included eyes so badly wounded that they had to be removed and a fractured pelvis that required months of physical therapy.
According to Fox 4 News, his former owner, 38-year-old Kimberly Anderson, entered her guilty plea on Thursday. Anderson will be entering the Jackson County Mental Health Court and she is prohibited from possession of animals. She is also mandated to pay $200 in restitution to KC Pet Project and serve 120 days of shock time.
