Justice for Leo

On May 1, 2020, our family returned home and noticed our 3 year old German Shepard, Leo was missing. We frantically began searching the area. When we left, he was in the fenced in yard.

We then found a note from Environmental Services stating they had picked him up and we had 15 days to get him. We immediately called the number but it was after 5p on Friday and no one was answering. We contacted the shelter via FB and asked if we could pick him up over the weekend. They said no. We arrived on Monday to pick him up and they said he had been deemed dangerous and that they would not be releasing him. A neighbor was reportedly scared of him.

In our county, a dog does not have to show aggression or attack anyone to be deemed dangerous. Someone just has to think he is. The court date we were given is a month after he was seized despite the law stating it should be within 5 days.

He is scared. He is lonely. He is confined to a cell. He has never bit anyone. He is around kids and people all the time. We are concerned for his mental well-being. He is starting to go kennel crazy. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!
