From Petition Creator Ed Derosier: Everybody, I just wanted to say thank you very much for all your support. This evening June Mills returned my dog to me. I'm in a state of disbelief but so grateful that you all were supportive of my efforts to reclaim him from his captors and elated that he is back home where he belongs. I can't say this enough..THANK YOU. Seeing your signatures supporting me was instrumental in pushing me to take all the action I did and was inspiring me to further that action to as far as litigation. I believe that it was this amount of action from me along with an incredibly helpful call this morning from Caitlin Richters to June that resulted in her relinquishing her detention of my dog. Thank you thank you thank you folks....I sincerely appreciate it. I can't even stop writing this thank you note becAUe he's laying across my feet and I can't stop thinking about this nightmare of a weekend. Thank you for bringing me back to the real world.

University of North Carolina at Pembroke; Pembroke NC -

On Tuesday June 12, 2012 my dog, Kobe, got loose. Thursday during the same week Kobe was picked up by June Mills, a University library technician. Mills took Kobe to her home in Lumberton, then notified the Robeson County Humane Society and in an attempt to find the dog's owner. On Friday June 15 Mills made contact with me but decided that she would not return Kobe because she felt I was an "unfit" owner. It is not her dog, and by not returning the dog she is undermining the legal system and the humane society's 'pet finder' system.
Now the UNCP campus police, who have jurisdiction over the situation and also are friends with Mills, will not help because Mills claims "to not have Kobe anymore because he ran away." As the finder of the pet Mills is responsible for the dog's well-being; which she has obviously failed to be responsible. If she has not lost him then she is lying and has him placed with someone she knows. Either way June Mills' actions have exacerbated the situation immensely and caused great emotional anguish. Robeson County Humane Society, Lumberton police, Pembroke police, and UNCP Campus police have only added to the corruption of this situation.

Asking that if you have seen Ed Derosier on UNCP campus with Kobe, or if you know Derosier and Kobe personally - please help in letting the Robeson County Humane Society and June Mills know that morally Kobe should be returned to his rightful owner. RCHS can be reached at 910-738-8282; call them to let them know that you are unhappy with June Mills and their response to this situation. Help a fellow UNCP student by signing this petition (which will help with legal action if needed) and spread the word...



Everyone thank you so very much, please see the updates tab, HE"S BACK :)

      Thank you everybody. Your support has helped immensely and I'm sincerely grateful that you would take the time to read about my situation and sign your names in support of my claim. This evening June Mills decided to relinquish her detainment of my dog and return him to me. And I'm sure that without the support of you all I would not have been able to think as clearly and relax in order to make the correct decisions. Your support for me helped to relieve the doubt and despair and that is something I was in desperate need of. Thank you everyone,

      I have been with Kobe and his owner many times and Kobe has always been a well-behaved, happy dog. He gets plenty of exercise, food, freedom, and love! Ed Derosier is a wonder owner and I can't imagine anyone wanting to keep Kobe away from him.
