Bella, a beautiful 4 year old white boxer mix, is being confined at Animal Control in Morganton, NC. It's a long story how she illegally ended up there by a lady that got her on a trial basis and sent her to her death in less than 10 hours. The lady is lying saying her son was bitten, but the only thing to show for it is the adult son who has a black eye. She has been caught in numerous lies over this dog and the events leading up to her sending the dog to animal control and requesting she be euthanized. Bella has been through so much already, being a puppy mill survivor, and this woman promised to take her on a trial basis only - but instead of getting back to the rescue, she took her to animal control, insisting to have Bella put to sleep. Animal Control will not listen or read the owner's proof that Bella does not legally belong to this lady.
Put to sleep. Euthanasia. That is the politically correct way to say it. The truth is, the date has been set to have Bella KILLED. She has through Tuesday, January 19th, 2016.
Wondering why? So are we! Bella does not deserve to die for something she didn't do!
There is a multitude of people outraged over this. We ask Animal Control and the Burke County Sheriff's office to stay the execution and immediately release Bella to her rightful owner, Candy Bowman.
