Lowestoft, Suffolk: Shaun Garrett and Kirsty Emma Spalding

#TheList Shaun Garrett, born c. 1967, and Kirsty Emma Spalding, born 02/07/1987, of Flat 44 Harry Chamberlain Court, Hollingsworth Road, Lowestoft NR32 4UG – left a cat and dog to suffer a variety of ailments including a broken leg

Convicted animal abusers Kirsty Spalding and step-dad Shaun Garrett plus the cat and dog they refused to take to the vet.
Irresponsible pet owners Kirsty Spalding and Shaun Garrett are now banned from keeping animals for 10 years after refusing to take their suffering pets to the vet.

Shaun Garrett and step-daughter Kirsty Emma Spalding failed to provide veterinary care for their cat’s broken leg, the cause of which wasn’t given, and their dog’s painful skin condition.

The court heard that the pair, then of Florence Terrace, Lowestoft, caused unnecessary suffering to the animals by not providing treatment between July and September 2017.

Gizzy, a white male tabby, was found to have a fracture of his hind left leg and a subsequent bone infection.

Gizzy and their elderly labrador had a flea infestation and an associated chronic skin disease.

The pair signed over the animals to the RSPCA and they have since made a reasonable recovery.

Neither Garrett or Spalding appeared for sentencing in Great Yarmouth Magistrates today, but both previously said they could not afford veterinary fees.

Sentencing: two-year conditional discharge; total of £95 costs and charges. Ten-year ban on keeping animals (expires June 2028).
