SARASOTA COUNTY FLORIDA HATES ALL ANIMAL RESCUE GROUPS !!!!  THE COUNTY WENT AFTER THE CAT RESCUE AND THE WILD LIFE RESCUE.  JUST LOOK HOW MANY ANIMAL RESCUES ARE IN THE COUNTY COMPARED TO OTHER COUNTIES.   IT IS ALL ABOUT MONEY TO THEM.

SARASOTA COUNTY HATES ANYTHING GOOD THAT PEOPLE DO.  A woman  teaches yoga at the beach FOR FREE to anyone.   Now SARASOTA COUNTY wants to charge her $13 hour to have this class.  It is all about MONEY to them.

WE NEED TO STOP THE GOVERMENT BULLYING THE LITTLE PEOPLE !!!!!!!!!

 

 

 

MM Pet Rescue saved dogs from high kill shelters and found them new homes. For the 5 1/2 months they were opened. they placed about 240 dogs in happy homes. On Dec 7, 2011,  Sarasota County ambushed the rescue with 6 different inspections at 10 am. The rescue wanted to work with the county in anyway they could, but all the county wanted to do is to keep them closed. Please help and sign the petition and help them reopen.

Sarasota County has been charging me the highest cost for me to get and records from them. County emails cost me over $200.  Getting court transcripts costs most people $3.50 per page.  They charge me the maximun allowed by law,  $7.00 a page.  They are trying to bankrupt me.  They also will not release public information to me.  This is a case of goverment bullying a person and a rescue.

A Sarasota County employee told after my court date they intended to close me down the day of the ambush and I lost my court case before it even started.

An officer with Sarasota County Animal Control said to me 4 hours into the "ambush," they where not going to take the dogs BUT she has to see what the fire marshall says.  The fire marshall made a "mistake" allowing me to move into the building wihtout a fire alarm.  Thye building was red flagged as unsafe for humand and animals.  I was given no time to correct his "oversight."  As soon as they removed the dogs, the building was "safe" again and we were allowed back into the building.

An Officer of  Sarasota County Animal Control said to a local reporter on their own that I was a scam and I was making tons of money selling dogs I bought from a shelter.  Everyone knows in the rescue world there is no money to be made with all the vet bills and up keep.

They court decision talked about  a dog named  Radio in the Civil Case.  The said I did not take him to the Vet and caused a him to have a score on his eye lid.  Since thay would not look at my vet records or the records from Miami they refused to learn that Radio had eye surgery 2 days before the raid,  He came from Miami with cherry eye.   Sararsota County Animal Control said I NEVER TOOK HIM TO THE VET.  They refused to look at my medical records or bills.

I also saved another dog from MDAS that had ricket and mange.  MDAS did not tell me about.  She was was a bout 8 weeks old.  I had her for about 3 week and the day they took her she went to the Vet that morning for another mange treatment.  The county vet said I caused the ricket because she was underwieght.  In the 3 weeks she gain over 4 lbs.  She came to me underwieght and she gained over 4lbs.  County vet said I starved her.  I supplied the vet records and the judge believed the county vet over written proof for MDAS and county vet she gain weight.

Breezer ( a old dog that the county killed).  Breezer was going to be killed the day I saved him from MDAS.  He was a mean old senior dog.  He became my buddy after sometime.  He has a tumor on his backside and he was to old to go through surgery.  NO RESCUE WOULD TAKE HIM !!!!  I was letting him live out his live here.  Everyday I had to clean him because he could not hold it.  HE WAS NOT IN ANY PAIN!   The county said it burst at the rescue.  I have witness to say different, if it ever burst.  He was not a adoptable dog and they killed him.  What next is the county is going to kill are seniors in nursing homes!!!!!! 

 

Thanks

      Remember the blk dog Troy? He was at Sarasota County Animal Control with a non working back leg. He was hit by a car. Sarasota County Animal Control did not have the money to get his leg fixed. I took Troy and raised money and I had to get his leg removed. I found him a loving home. They say I abuse dogs. IF that was anyone else they would be taken to jail. The county can spend about $100,000 to keep me closed but not about $500 to get a leg removed. This is a CRIME!!!!!

We move a small dog to a clean small cage to clean there cage and Animal Control told me that I could not bo that for any amont of time. Why can they do this for hours????????????????

      Please share this to everyone. Sarasota County is still not giving me information that anyone can request. Emails and the cost. So far I can figure out the county spent over $25,000 and it is climbing.
      A waste of $$$$. Thanks for your support. Marc

    19. Vet Records

      Marc Marois
      Petition Organizer

      I am going to post responses to various dogs that Sarasota County Animal Control said I never took to the VET. I will add more dogs all the time until I get all of them on this page. The Judge and the County did not consider this evidence in the verdict. I have all these vet records. I will show anyone anytime. Just Ask. 941-412-4383.

    20. About my own dogs (kids).

      Marc Marois
      Petition Organizer

      My dogs never were on trail. The Sarasota County Civil Court ruled because of this I had to place my own dogs with some one else. I can not even enjoy walking with my dogs (kids), taking my dogs to the beach or to the dog park anymore. If a dog is walking down the street, I can not help that dog or give it water because I could go to JAIL.

    21. The County is sending out people to spy

      Marc Marois
      Petition Organizer

      They are sending sending people out to see if I dogs and to try to pull my 501c3 status. A lady came in the other dog and told me where her husband works and wanted to sign probation hours for her husband who has not done community service for the thrift store. She offered me $500. I told her no and she kept calling. Her husband does not work where she told me he did. I called. Probation did not have anyone by that name. Everytime she came to the thrift store, she sat in her car for about 20 minutes and spent about the same amount of time before she left. I think she was taking pictures. I also suspect someone else. They drilled me for a long time in the store about dogs and where am I keeping them. He kept circling around asking the same questions. Marc

      For some idiotic bureaucratic reason, Sarasota County officials are going after rescue groups. MM Pet Rescue is one of those who has been forced to close. Lots of testimonials tell of this place doing good work & saving lives. It should be allowed to re-open along with any other honest shelter/rescue that's been targeted by closed-minded insanity.

      Why would anyone want to harm people that are trying to HELP and do something positive ??????? That is just plain STUPID. Think about the animals and not YOURSELF and let these people help them you creeps. Be thankful the animals are not suffering and being taken care of !!!! Do not be foolish AND greedy losers
