An animal rescue organization is running a letter-writing campaign regarding a Lexington woman accused of abusing her dog last October.
The Davidson County Animal Alliance posted information on its Facebook page on Thursday about the dog named Nina and her accused abuser, Isabel Perez Salgado.
The organization urged people to write letters about the case to Davidson County District Attorney Garry Frank.
Frank said Friday his office received 20 to 30 letters regarding the case. Frank declined to comment further on this.
Salgado, 27, was arrested on Oct. 27, 2021, and charged with animal cruelty, according to an arrest warrant.
Salgado is charged with failing to take her dog, Nina, to a veterinarian after a Davidson County animal control officer told her to, according to the warrant. The dog had been hit by a car a week earlier, which left Nina with a broken back.
Salgado is also accused of locking her dog in the crawl space of a home without food or water, according to the warrant.
Salgado was released Oct. 27 after posting $1,000 bond, court records show.
