Justice For Desmond 
New Haven Superior Court 
121 Elm Street


Protesters will gather peacefully on the court steps today, asking the maximum sentence be given to 22 year old Alex Wullaert, for the charge of felony animal cruelty (). Desmond was surrendered by his owner to the New Haven Animal Shelter in January 2011, and immediately became a volunteer favorite. When Desmond was adopted a few months later, we were ecstatic. We didn't know that the young man who adopted Desmond was the original owner's ex-boyfriend with a history of violence, Alex Wullaert. Alex admits to beating Desmond so he didn't bark, locking him in the bathroom for twelve hours a day, and only feeding him a cup of rice a day. After a year of being beaten, and starved, Alex hanged six year old Desmond to death, threw his body in a trash bag, and dumped his body. Alex was charged with felony animal cruelty and littering. The community is stepping up to be the voice of a shelter dog who was loved, and mattered. Alex withdrew his application for Accelerated Rehabilitation, and is expected to refile. 

Alex returns to court Thursday, September 13th. Justice For Desmond asks you to join us peacefully at New Haven Superior Court located at 121 Elm Street at 8:00AM.  Please visit our facebook page www.facebook.com/JusticeForDesmond Inquiries can be directed to Micah Rapini via our facebook page.

NOT GUILTY???? He admitted doing this! Another way for the lawyers to make a ton. I hope he has to pay his attorney for the rest of his life AND goes to jail as well. Civil society should have no use for this kind of scum!

I'm curious if all the protesters are Vegans.

And your point is..........?????????????

I wonder if people feel it's ok for someone else to kill the animal and eat it. Animals ARE a lower form of life and equal to a human life.

I will stand up for animals and be their voice until the laws are changed. This is not some third world country that lets dogs roam the streets and bet on their fighting skills (well, maybe some areas of Connecticut are...re: the dog fighting). We are supposed to be compassionate people, yet so many abuse and kill innocent animals. As for the child who was abused...I believe so many people are very sad this happened to this poor little girl. I hope the justice system will give the animal step-father the maximum sentence. And if the State's Attorney is on the ball...they will give him the max. But you see, the court room will be packed with people who will testify against this beastly man. Child Advocates, Attorney's and family members will speak up for this unfortunate child. Who is going to do the same for the abused animals? You??? Feel free to join us on the 30th of October.
