A Washington CH man has been sentenced for kicking a dog. 21-year-old Perry Elzey Jr. of Washington C.H. pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge during his pretrial hearing in municipal court. Elzey received a $150 fine, 30-days suspended jail, and was ordered not to own any dog for a period of five years.
A Fayette Regional Humane Society agent and officers with the Washington C.H. Police Department responded to 421 Rawlings St. in July where a man was shown kicking a dog in video recorded by a witness. According to the press release, Elzey was attempting to punish the dog because it didn’t listen.
Humane Agent Nick Marando removed a brown and white pit bull mix that was shown being kicked along with two other dogs found at the residence. Marando transported all three dogs to a veterinary clinic for examination, treatment and boarding.“I am glad to see that Elzey isn’t allowed to own any dogs for a period of time.” said Nick Marando, humane agent.
According to Humane Agent Brad Adams, two of the three dogs that were removed found a new home.
Kalvin, a one-year-old brown and white pit bull mix is still available for adoption at the Ross County Humane Society. He has been neutered, received his DHPP vaccination, rabies vaccination, dewormed, heartworm tested, and flea treated.
