Get Amber the Service Dog home for Christmas!
This petition had 810 supporters
Amber the Service Dog is famous around the USA for performing and training other K9's.
I first got Amber when I got major complications with my double mastectomy from my breast cancer, which not only made me deaf, but I have SCREAMING in my ears 24/7 which is horrendously painful.
I had to return urgently to Australia for my father's funeral, but now Amber is stuck back in the USA! I have filled ALL the vet requirements, all the medical requirements for my disability, all her wait periods for vaccines....EVERYTHING is completed...yet one little person in the Department of Agriculture in Australia has decided she's not a service dog - the reason - because she wasn't trained in Australia!
ARE YOU KIDDING?
Amber is one of the most famous service dogs in the world. She has trained other dogs and handlers, and last year alone did 80,000 miles donating presentations, lectures, demos and clinics to therapy centers, disabled programs, Wounded Warriors and Riding for Disabled.
As you know I have presented and lectured at the highest level for animal training, and many of my riders have been to the Paralympics...and I've received awards and references from many Police and K9 Units around the world - including the London Metropolitan Police, the Queen of England's Mounted Guards.
THE ONLY REASON....she wasn't trained in Australia!
Please sign this petition! It's crazy she's not being let in. They said she could come in as a pet, but the cheapest quote then is $8,000. So, it's $8,000 worth of discrimination.
Everyone knows I've now retired from teaching due to my health. I have given up my amazing career, and all my students around the world know that have followed me on my health crisis over the years.
Please sign. And, please pray!
