Beware of this guy he abuses animals ONGOING Please crosspost this everywhere. If you have media contacts, use them to get this story
out! Please take the time to read this and forward it to everyone you know. This needs to go out to ALL RESCUE & ANIMAL RELATED people andall animal related groups:
Shon Rahrig this man is adopting and torturing animals across our country...has been
convicted, now on the loose and still adopting
...last known to be in Florida
Case Report: Shon adopted a cat from Citizens for Humane Action (C.H.A.) on January 26, 1999. In the early morning hours of February
6, Shon beat the cat, poked out its eye, broke its jaw legs, and left it bloody and in agony in a laundry basket in his apartment. He asked
Melissa to come over and get it and take it to Delaware County Humane Society and tell them she found it along the road. She instead took it
to Columbus Veterinary Emergency Service (CVE who humanely euthanized it due to the extensive nature of its injuries. Shon Rahrig, about 30 years old, of Sandbury Blvd, allegedly adopted 6 or 7 cats and a puppy from various local shelters and allegedly abused them horribly, broke their limbs, put their eyes out, etc. The alleged abuse became known when his girlfriend took one of the victims to a vet to be euthanized.
In court he "copped a plea" to avoid the nasty publicity of a jury trial, and confessed to torturing one black and white cat, Misty,
adopted from Citizens for Humane Action.
Under the current statutes the most severe penalty for this man, if convicted, would be 90 days in jail and/or a fine of $750. Melissa contacted C.H.A. and advised them what had happened. C.H.A. transported the body from CVES to Capital Area Humane Society and filed an abuse report.
Shon was subsequently arraigned and charged with one count of animal abuse. Shon at first plead not guilty, but changed his plea to guilty. On September 29,1999, Judge Pfeiffer sentenced Shon to 90 days in jail
(of which 45 were suspended), 5 years probation, mandatory counseling and he was forbidden from owning any living thing during the 5 year probation period. He began serving his sentence on November 1.
BEWARE OF WHO YOU ARE DOING BUSINESS WITH ESPECIALLY IF IT IS A PRIVATE ADOPTION.
Rahrig has now moved to the Fort Myers Area! Please beware of this Man!
On 4/29 /2002: He was reported to have moved to Long Beach, CA area where he was spotted at an adoption event.

This disgusting piece of you-know-what placed an ad on Craigslist today looking for more
animals to abuse!
His name is Shon Rahrig. If you go to PetAbuse.com, you can read his history and even see his mug shot. He's been arrested
before. I can't believe he is still trying to get ahold of pets to torture!
Those postings from the man looking for a cute lit'l puppy for his angel of a daughter ......... I'd steer clear of those ads.
There is a man on the run now, Shon Rahrig, that is around the Florida/Georgia area. He purposely answers/posts ads looking for free/cheap animals to abuse/mutilate.
Thanks for reading
