Middletown woman starved her dog when she bought new furniture

In Middletown, Ohio, the owner of an emaciated dog has been charged with first-degree misdemeanor animal cruelty to a companion animal after she turned in the dog to an animal rescue. The dog had been locked in a cage in the basement of her home after the owner purchased new furniture.

According to the Butler County Sheriff’s Office, the dog turned into Joseph’s Legacy, was so severely emaciated, an investigation was initiated. Ashley Kubilus, 27, told the dog warden she had the dog for about two years and had not been able to care for the dog appropriately.

“This is not rocket science, you get a pet, you feed and take care of the pet or you give it to someone who will,” stated Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones. “This dog had been starved so badly. I’m not sure how it is still alive now. She claimed she ran out of room because of buying new furniture so she kept in in a cage in the basement. The treatment of this animal is disgusting.”

The dog, dubbed ‘Starvin’ Marvin will receive medical treatment and be in the care of Josephs Legacy located in the Middletown area. Joseph’s Legacy President Meg Melampy says  Marvin is sweet and friendly.

    So, her furniture is so precious to her that she kept her dog in the basement and nearly starved her to death? People make me sick! If she could be locked up in a roach infested room with nothing but a cot and a broken chair for the next 2 years, that would be justice.

    I don’t understand why they ask for donations when clearly the SOB owner should fit the whole vet bill, what she’s only going to get a slap on the wrist, if she can afford new furniture then she can afford the vet bills, and if not then she should sell or take back the furniture and use that money. I just don’t get it. I don’t care if she surrendered the dog she’s still the cause of the dogs condition.

    Put this vile monster “owner” in a cage in the room where she has her new furniture and let her look at it every day and no food or water for her for at least 2 weeks.

    Ok so she thinks it’s ok to lock a dog up and throw away the key then she’s needs to learn what that feels like. She needs to be lock in a cage in a basement for however long that poor baby had to. I guarantee she’ll change her mind!
