Eve's Story

Eve's story is a sad so many others that we encounter. What we see and what others see are clearly different. In this case Eve’s owner did not think anything was wrong and therefore decided not to take any action. A person who fails to provide proper care or seek professional assistance is just as guilty as a person who perpetrates an act of animal cruelty.

Unfortunately, being ignorant is not considered a crime.

Eve weighed only 37 pounds when we took her in, less than half of what she should have weighed. Due to severe malnutrition and organ failure, Eve was humanely put to rest.
The RISPCA feels strongly that ignorance should not be a defense of the law and we will continue to work toward that goal in helping those who can not speak for themselves.
