Shelby, OH – Aurora is a beautiful 3 yr-old dog with a terribly sad and traumatizing past.
The young dog lost her home when her owner, Peter Bower of Shelby, was found guilty of a misdemeanor charge of “injuring” an animal.
The injuries were to Aurora – the manner in which she was abused is deplorable.
Aurora was sexually abused by Bower.
The heinous crime was discovered this past June. Tragically, Aurora, until just recently, was held at a pound as part of “court evidence”.
Thankfully, she has been released from the pound and is now residing in a foster home through the Open Arms Rescue of WNY in Akron, NY.
According to the rescue organization – everyone who meets Aurora absolutely adores her.
She is currently being fostered in a home which includes other dogs, cats and teenagers.
The rescue intends to fully evaluate Aurora in order to learn about any special needs which she may have after her traumatic past.
They intend to do what is best for Aurora and to ensure that she never suffers from abuse again.
As for Bowers, he will never spend time behind bars for his crime. Unfortunately, in Ohio, bestiality is not a crime.
Instead, he has been sentenced to 80 days of community services, two years of probation and he must undergo a sexual evaluation and attend sex addiction classes.
Bowers must pay a $500 fine and he has been ordered to not own animals.
