Call to Action: Your Voice is Important

When I think back to the times when I’ve been strongly motivated to advocate for animals, I find that they coincide with particular stories of animal abuse in the news. Stories that hit me in the gut. My current project is no different. For it to be successful, I need to make a lot of noise and to reach a lot of people. To do this, I need your help: the help of other advocates, animal rescues, and animal lovers. Today I am going to give you the opportunity and a clear path to help me and make a difference.

Jeffrey-Nally-Jr-mugshot-35765165.400x800 (1)In 2011, I covered a story out of West Virginia for Pet Pardons News. It was about a young man, Jeffrey A. Nally, who’d been arrested for obtaining animals from “Free to Good Home” ads and then torturing the animals to death. Many of the victims were puppies. Police found the remains of 29 dogs and a cat on his property. If you want to read more about the details of the case, you can do so HERE. (Be warned, it’s gruesome). The case had a prosecutor who really cared. He worked hard to be the voice for Nally’s helpless and innocent victims, and was able to have the man sentenced to 10-45 years in prison. That’s almost unheard of.

Nally comes up for parole in April of 2021. You may not know this, but psychiatric and humane professionals agree: animal abusers are five times more likely to move on to commit other violent crimes like assault and murder. In Jeff Nally’s case, he already has other violent crimes on his record, and given the fact that he’s been quoted as saying, “Killing dogs makes me feel good,” I think you’ll agree with me that the world is a safer place if he remains behind bars and serves his entire sentence.

That’s why I’m putting out this CALL TO ACTION.

1. Sign the petition I’ve started on and then share it via your social media.

2. Write a letter to the WV  Division of Corrections parole board asking them to deny Jeffrey Nally early parole.

You should address your letter to “Honorable Members of the Parole Board“. Tell them you’d like for them to deny parole for Jeffrey A. Nally, Offender #3507601.

Ask that Nally  be given a “set-off” and be required to serve his full sentence. Tell the parole board why you think Nally is a danger to society, and how you feel about his cruel crimes. Sign your letter and mail it to:

Parole Board
WV Division of Corrections
1356 Hansford St. Suite B
Charleston, WV 25301

Neither the offender nor his attorney will see your letter — only the parole board. Personal letters carry the most weight with the parole board, but if you need help, send me an email and I will provide you with a letter you can sign and mail.

* Alternately, please click HERE for three sample letters targeting the parole board, which need to be  modified/personalized for greatest impact.

3. Make a donation to the GoFundMe that I’ve set up for this project. Donations will be used to purchase pre-printed postcards to the parole board. The postcards will be provided to individuals and groups to share with others to sign and mail in. If there is enough in the GoFundMe, the remainder will be used for postage to mail the postcards.

4. If you are an individual or a member of a group who wants postcards to pass out, please send me an email with your mailing address and the number of postcards you think you’d be able to get others to sign and mail.

5. If you are an official of a rescue or humane group who updates your members with emails or a newsletter, I will provide you with an article upon request.

6. If you are a teacher who would like me to speak to your class about this campaign and advocating for animals, contact me.

7. Share this blog post with others via your social media.

My partner and I have been involved in companion animal rescue since 1986, sometimes sheltering as many as sixteen animals at a time in our home. Currently, we share our lives with five misfit dogs.

I used to say, ‘Somebody should do something about that.’
Then I realized I am somebody.

This thing has forfeited his right to
Be a member of the human race,
He needs a barren prison asteroid
Of his own,
Alone in space.

    Absolutely disgusting! Such criminals, people like Jeffrey A. Nally deserve life imprisonment or euthanasia they do not deserve to be alive… Signed (with text) and shared on FB

      I agree. I’m sorry, but people like this are just twisted and evil, you know he is counting the days until he can continue his killing career. He’s a serial killer, plain and simple, torturing and killing done so with intent and deception.

      People like to say that killing animals is a ‘red flag’. No, it’s not a RED flag, it is THE flag, he’s already there, just taking advantage of animals’ inferior social status. There is no chance of rehabilitation, he’s not just going to wake up one morning and decide to play for Team Good.

      I like to see the good in people, but with a “person” like this, that’s just a waste of vision.

      Thank you so much, beautiful Claudine.
