In Cobb County, Georgia, warrants were issued on Thursday to arrest the woman who abandoned two dogs at a home and left them to starve to death. In a heartbreaking animal cruelty case dating back to December 2016, Ashley Davis is alleged to have left the dogs for 16 days with no food or water. She faces multiple charges of aggravated animal cruelty and abandonment of animals. According to Fox5Atlanta, a blind bulldog dog named Simpson and Lucky, a deaf pitbull mix were originally “rescued” by Davis who stated she wanted to help dogs with disabilities:
“They were tortured by lack of feeding,” stated Detective Steve Hammond. “She moved out of her residence and left the two dogs behind.”
When the dogs were discovered, Lucky weighed only 31 pounds, and veterinarians were not even sure the dog would survive. The dog has since recovered and is in the care of Bosley’s Place Rescue. Lucky has been in a foster home and is currently available for adoption. Simpson suffered from glaucoma, and recently underwent surgery to remove his eyes. He has been at Cobb County Animal Control, along with two other dogs removed from Davis’ home. Before the dogs can be placed up for adoption, court proceedings will be needed to remove Davis’ legal custody.
Davis is not believed to be living in the Atlanta area, and details are in progress to find out where she is currently residing.
