IMMEDIATELY RETURN ASHLEY MILLER'S DOGS TO HER FROM KILLEEN ANIMAL CONTROL

    2. Petition by

      ASHLEY MILLER

      San Diego, United States

WE THE PEOPLE DEMAND AN IMMEDIATE RETURN OF ASHLEY NICOLE MILLER'S DOGS "KODA", "PHANTOM", "APOLLO", "SCOOBY" AND "COWBOY" TO HER AS THEY WERE WRONGFULLY AND UNLAWFULLY STOLEN FROM HER BY CITY AUTHORITIES AND 4 TEXAS RESCUES.

This petition is important because the human rights of the owner of these dogs (who was NEVER CONVICTED of any crime) were completely violated.

The 5th and the 14th amendments protect us from having our property taken away unlawfully through the rights to "due process" of the law. That did not happen in Ashley Nicole Miller's case. Her dogs were illegally confiscated from her with no warrant and sent to rescues without ever going to a hearing or a trial. This is a violation of both State and Federal Laws. 

The following rescue groups, Texas Husky Rescue, Heart of Texas Lab Rescue, Tails of Hope Pet Rescue, and Forever Homes Rescue in Texas illegally obtained her dogs and were given demand letters from an attorney ordering their return.  They instead participated in the illegal trafficking of stolen property by adopting Ashley's dogs into homes.  They have also resorted to attacking Ashley online, threatening her with smear campaigns, and they have publically humiliated her. 

The 6th amendment authorizes the accused in a crime to examine any and all evidence against them in a court of law.  Ashley's dogs were dispersed, therefore destroying the evidence and any possibility for expert veterinarians of the defense to examine said evidence. 

Apparently, the Animal Control within the city of Killeen, Texas also has a history of doing this to other people. Ashley's dogs were held over her head for a very large price tag of over $2,400. She was allowed to get them back, provided she pay that fee which also increased at a daily rate.  It is illegal through both State and Federal Laws to impose a fine on a person's property without them ever being found guilty of a crime.  It is also illegal to disperse of their property without being found guilty of a crime.

This is a huge injustice and a violation of both Human Rights, Civil Rights and Property Rights as defined under both the State and Federal Constitutions that govern Texas Law. Please help Ashley's dogs to come home by sharing this petition or following this on facebook.  The dogs were sent to the following rescues who have refused to return her dogs and have threatened her and caused her emotional pain and heartache:

Apollo (Heart of Texas Lab Rescue, TX)

Cowboy (Texas Tails of Hope Pet Rescue, TX)

Scooby (Forever Homes Rescue, TX)

Koda and Phantom (Texas Husky Rescue, TX)

Although Ashley was ACCUSED (please educate yourself on the definition of this word before you go running around saying she is guilty as an accusation is not a fact)  of animal cruelty, she has never had a chance to present her side to a court, and was stripped of her property (the dogs) without being allowed to do so.  This is an outrage.  Please get these dogs home where they belong!  On behalf of Ashley and all who support her, thank you for signing.
