Jay Baldwin, animal abuser

Reposting via Rescue Ink

This is urgent - Jay Baldwin, animal abuser - Please cross post!!!!!

Please cross post to all shelters, ACOs and anyone doing adoptions! He will torture and kill any animal he gets his hands on. He sometimes has a woman helping him. It is best to check driver's licenses to verify identity.

Subject: Do Not Adopt!!!!

I work at an animal shelter in northwest CT. Today we had to keep all our doors locked and check people (license, etc) before they entered our shelter and keep the security camera on at all times. There is a man called Jay Baldwin who just got out of jail on Thursday and on Friday he stopped at a local vet and tried to get an animal from them. They recommended our shelter and another local one (not knowing his reputation, he is known for animal abuse). Our director alerted the police who kept an eye on us and will continue to do so. He may even break into a building to get an animal.

Jay Baldwin is in his 50s, tanned and likes to wear hats. He will pay an adoption fee to get the animal and can even get violent and take the animal if thwarted. He may also send friends in to get the animal. He will use other names. So it this makes it hard to tell who he is. Hopefully adoption screening will help keep animals from him.

Please let other shelters you know of know this.

First Names: Jay

This is JAY BALDWIN....someone circulated a different picture of an animal abuser and confused him as Jay Baldwin as listed above..This, according to the West Waldwick shelter, is Jay Baldwin.


  1. Why don't we just shoot him!!

  2. We have to say we agree with Anonymous. If he has already been charged with 10 counts....something more severe needs to be done. It is only a matter of time before he escalates to humans.

  3. The USA as a whole needs stricter laws, penalties & punishment on animal abuse.

    For example, several summers ago up here in WA state a woman left her apartment and was gone for weeks. She said, she went to take care of her mother or something like that. Anyway... she left all her animals behind in her apartment. We were having a heat wave at the time and by the time the authorities arrived... all the animals, dogs and cats were dead! No water, no food, no anything. One parrot was barely alive and shortly died after at the animal hospital. THIS WOMAN GOT A SLAP ON THE WRIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The same summer or a little while after some young men were caught tying up a dog and shooting arrows into it. AGAIN A SLAP ON THE WRIST!!!!!!!!

    We have a problem w/ horses up here. People abuse them or neglect them... we see these cases over and over and over again and pretty it gets ingrained into people that nothing is ever going to be done. Animals mean nothing and are of no value. That is what we are saying as a society when these losers do not get punished.

    Makes me sick! :-(

  4. "and pretty it gets ingrained into people that nothing is ever going to be done." --- I don't know why I wrote pretty.... Im losing it! :-O

  5. Jay Baldwin lives in Meriden now.And he tried to call a women a few weeks ago trying to adopt cats.He told me he was innocent but i know he is lying. He needs mental help.
