Sign: Punish Couple Who Neglected Estimated 90 Dogs – Woman Is A Repeat Offender!

Published: February 06, 2020 at 10:03 AM Author: Penny Eims

In August, an estimated 90 dogs were found living in squalor on property in Holmes County, Florida. The sheriff’s office arrested 55-year-old Ferrell D. Godfrey and 60-year-old Marianne L. Godfrey at 1478 Peak Road – Marianne Godfrey is a repeat offender!

In 2011, Marianne Godfrey was arrested after more than 200 animals were discovered in Gordon, Alabama. The animals were part of Dirty Sally’s Pet Pals, which claimed to be a non-profit agency operating to help animals get adopted. Godfrey’s 2011 charge was just a misdemeanor – and here she is again in 2019, arrested for animal cruelty after dozens of dogs were found living in squalor.

The Holmes County Sheriff’s Office stated that dogs were found chained to trees or crammed into an outside pen without access to food or water. Many of the dogs were malnourished and/or seriously injured and plagued with injuries and untreated wounds. The dogs in the Godfreys’ “care” were suffering and this couple must pay for their crime.

Join us in asking Holmes County officials to provide a strong enough sentence that the Godfreys will cease their deplorable behavior.

Please sign the petition – let officials know that this behavior is NOT okay.
