#TheList Tamsyn Lauren Beck, born 14/06/1991, of Dunchurch Road, Rugby CV22 – left her pet Staffordshire bull terrier locked alone in a room in her flat for at least five days
Beck pleaded guilty to two animal welfare offences following her abandonment of the Staffy, known as Kaiser.
Members of the public who had become worried for the welfare of Kaiser called the RSPCA – and Inspector Helen Smith was sent to investigate on January 28, 2019.
Inspector Smith said: “We know Beck left Kaiser for at least five days but it could have been longer which is obviously very concerning.
“Dogs need to be cared for properly and as well as being fed and watered and exercised, they are social creatures so need company, affection and interaction.
“Poor Kaiser was left for a number of days with no such attention and must have felt frightened and lonely.”
Kaiser is now doing well in the care of the RSPCA and he will be up for re-homing soon.
Sentencing: 12-month community order including 100 hours of unpaid work and a 15-day Rehabilitation Activity Requirement. Ordered to pay £135 costs and an £85 victim surcharge. Banned from owing animals for 10 years.
