20 Dogs Die at Green Acres Boarding Kennel

Love At Its Best!

On June 20th, 2014, 23 families lost their loved ones to a major tragedy! Green Acres Boarding Kennel, under the control of Austin Flake (AZ-Senator Jeff Flake's son) and his wife stated that all 23 victims were healthy at 11 pm on Thursday and at 5:30 am on Friday were deceased.

It's been reported that on Saturday, Green Acres owners (Todd and MaLeisa Hughes) informed pet owners that the dogs had escaped (when they were already deceased) deliberately lying to the pet owners.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County Sheriff Office (MCSO) has opened an investigation into the deaths, and had doubts on the statements provided to what led up to the tragedy. We are confident that with 28 dogs stuffed into a small room with one vent (even with a working air conditioner) is enough evidence to prove "Animal Cruelty" and all parties should be charged as such.

Contact Links & Petitions

While ExploringArizona.org does not usually promote legal situations, this was such a tragedy that we ask that all pet owners and Arizona Residents to get involved. Please contact:

  • Maricopa County Sheriff Office (MCSO) - let them know you believe that criminal charges should be filed against all parties involved;
  • Arizona Senator Jeff Flake - to produce his son Austin to cooperate in the investigation of the 23 deaths;
  • Child Protection Agency - to the safety of all children that the Hughes family foster. We question the safety of the children if the organization treats other peoples pets (who paid for the care of their loved ones).
