I pray this woman gets off.
I hope she gets off too!
I have doggie knapped in order to rescue neglected animals and I don't regret it for a moment and I would do it again in a heart beat!
|\t I wanted you to hear it from me before you heard it from anyone else. Today at 5:00 p.m. EST I was convicted of theft and receiving stolen property in a Blair County, PA courtroom.
I'm sure I will have much more to say about this at a future date. For now I need a day or two to mourn and then begin to pick up my pieces and move on.
Please realize this is just a bump in my road, and I will not stop working for chained and penned dogs. I hope those of you who are on this list as supporters will stay with me...but I need you still believe in me and the work I've done to free dogs from lives of hell on the end of chains. To still believe in us and the differences we are beginning to make in the lives of chained dogs.
A very special thank you to the wonderful angels at Best Friends in Utah. They stood behind me, and I know they took flack for it. You are special people, and I am honored and touched to know you.
For all the rest of you who gave your time and energy to help me in my case, my deepest gratitude. You touch my heart.
For you, Doogie. May you rest in peace, knowing you were loved and cared for. Tammy
This is just infuriating. I don't understand why Animal Control didn't do anything in the first place and secondly, I further can't understand why the owners of Doogie aren't themselves being prosecuted for animal cruelty.
I'd like to say a big "YOU GO GIRL!" to her though for standing by what she believes to have been the right decision. I'm willing to bet that all other animal lovers will be thinking precisely the same thing. That is the kind of dedication and strength of mind and character that helps to change the world - even by a little bit - for the better. Hats off to her for realizing that this is "just a bump in the road" and that she's not going to be discouraged by it. We need more people like her around.
