Besides the deaths & tortures of ANY dog they City of Everett Shelter perceives to be a Bully breed or mix, there was what they did to my animals. I don't know if anyone reading this knows what it is like to love someone with every cell of your being & have them ripped from their arms & to KNOW they were going to be tortured but my worst fears came true the day I got the vet reports.
Soffia who left my car @ 11;00am, safe, warm, dry, & with all of her beautiful teeth showed up 6 1/2 later, soaked in urine, wet hypothermic, bloody & missing teeth
Hoki arrived having seizures, Misty was terrified beyond belief & Taz managed to get giardia 20 days after they took them from me. They have my 7yr old (now 10) cat listed as a year & a half, my 7 yr old Kelpie is now 3 & a 1/2 years old & Misty is really 7 yrs old as well is also now 3 1/2 yrs old.
My precious George arrived at the shelter 6 1/2 hours later, bleeding from his rectum & unable to walk: Whether he was beaten, sodomized or both I will never know. He was 14 yrs old & a puppy mill survivor, he had an appt to be put to sleep on Friday, March 7th (He was taken March 6th & kept alive on 1/10 of the painkillers he was supposed to have even though I gave them to them, they "disappeared" till he was slaughtered & mutilated 6 days later)which is why we were living in my car, I couldn't bear to miss one single moment with him because I knew he was going to die from Lymphoma. Just to show you how stupid these people are take a look at his photoshopped dew claw, which was ALSO a picture they used for another dog.
No my animals had well over 7 yrs worth of vet records, they had all the proper medications & were all safe warm & dry.
So what do you do when you can't find anything wrong but you want to teach someone a lesson for telling on YOU for abusing animals? You "invent" a charge. You heard me right, I was charged with failure to provide humane care because I did not have water out 24 hours a day.
Which if it was law could only be considered a 500.00 citation. Drew Neilson (God rest his soul) who was a City of Everett Councilman told me I was never going to win, because the orders were "to shut me down no matter what" They even got the city attorney James Iles to fill out the court documents instead of the Elmer Fudd of a prosecutor Michael "Mike" Fisher.
Please join me for my new Radio Show on Blog Talk Radio, where I will be discussing my case as well as others in the Washington State area. Mine is not the only case in this state, there are many more, unfortunately.
