A small dog, found with 19 stab wounds, was found at a church in north St. Louis County on March 13. According to a press release from the Humane Society of Missouri, the 10-year-old poodle mix, dubbed “Frannie,” was suffering from blood loss, shock and trauma from the multiple injuries to her neck, back and chest.

The shelter recounted how Frannie was discovered:

The Humane Society of Missouri ACT received a call Monday from the St. Louis County Police Crisis Intervention Team concerning an injured dog found while the team was responding to a mental illness call at a church in north St. Louis County. Upon arrival at the church, the ACT investigator found the wounded dog, covered in blood but alive. St. Louis County Police requested HSMO take the dog into protective custody for treatment and sheltering. Late afternoon Tuesday, the dog’s owner voluntarily surrendered custody of Frannie to the Humane Society of Missouri.

Kathy Warnick, president of the Humane Society of Missouri, commented on the cruel situation:

This poor dog suffered an unfathomable trauma. Our first priority is for her to make a full recovery. Our expert staff will do everything we can to treat Frannie and give her the love and care she deserves. In addition, our ACT will continue to investigate this case and deliver our report to the St. Louis County Police Department and the Prosecutor’s Office.

    So did the owner do this to this poor dog? If so how about some charges being brought! Prayers for poor Frannie, for a full recovery.

      Yes this article is not telling the full story. Authorities found the dog and the owners surrendered “Frannie”. I wish if they are going to post these articles they should have more viable information before posting!!!!!

    Another sickening case of animal cruelty – I do so hope Frannie recovers and finds the safe loving home she obviously never had – she so well deserves it – and to the so called ‘mental case’ – I have 0 empathy for you and your twisted brain.

    Il est facile de dire qu’on est fou pour ne pas faire de la prison. Ce monstre sait très bien qu’il a torturé se pauvre bébé. Il ne mérite pas de vivre, s’est un danger pour la société, il doit mourrir. Pas d’excuses ni de pitié pour les assassins.

    We all want the perpetrator of this horrific act charged but the sobering sad truth about that is even if someone is charged there won’t be any kind of punishment! Just the usual fine and probation! And then people wonder why the abuse of innocent companion animals is so rampant! If these assholes were appropriately punished they might think twice about doing it again! And you can believe they will do this sort of thing again! It is mind boggling to me that our government and judicial system do not seem to be fazed by these most horrific crimes! The abuse of dogs and cats will never be thwarted when there is no punishment meted out for this horror!! I think Americans in all 50 states need to band together and rise up and demand change!! Good protection laws are denied over and over and over again! WHY??? It seems that laws in this country have to be bought,all these special interest groups with all their millions run the show in this country when it comes to enacting laws! Animal advocates EVERYWHERE have worked tirelessly for years to have these laws enacted and enforced, only to have them denied ALL OF THE TIME! How do our legislators continually vote these laws down and then go home and love and adore their own pets ,which I’m sure many of them own! What is so OFFENSIVE AND WRONG to our lawmakers and the judicial system about protecting companion animals from the abuse,neglect,torture and killing of innocent animals,who only want to love us? Something shadey going on behind the scenes of our legislature and we need to DEMAND CHANGE!! Every lawmaker out there with their indifferent attitudes should be required to stay in a puppy mill for a couple of days and be required to be present first hand when law enforcement go out to animal abuse calls! If they are even a little bit human, they would be DEEPLY affected and outraged by the lack of legal recourse that is available! ITS WRONG,ITS CRUEL AND ITS IMMORAL!!! If everyone would stand united and demand change then maybe we would get these much needed laws!! There is power in large numbers,here in Ohio that is the new game plan,every advocate,rescue and animal lover banding together to fight for these laws! Pretty sad that we have to fight and beg the government to enact good laws for companion animals,ESPECIALLY since the lawmakers that we vote into office are suppose to be our voice and fight for what “WE THE PEOPLE” want!! I’ll never ever understand how this is allowed to go on year after year!! Our lawmakers could care less what the good people of this country wants to see happen because it’s all about what these special interest groups want and what they are willing to do for the lawmakers to get what they want done! ITS CRIMINAL!!!

    I want abusers punished severely, and, as it is, many times they get off with no punishment or punishment so light it is laughable. Please do not vote for lawmakers who do not get this, or lawmakers like the one in Iowa who sees nothing wrong with dog fighting. Make sure the person you are voting for is an animal lover or nothing is ever going to change.

    Lawmakers have to throw these monters in jail!!! The little slap on the wrist punishment does nothing to stop this kind of cruelty and abuse to these innocent precious dogs who can’t defend themselves!!!
