Expedite a hearing date or put a hold on the daily holding fee of 25$

“Katie” is a loving and obedeiant 3 year old Retriever mix dog who is being held for allegedly biting a person after getting out from her home with another dog a few weeks ago.  

With no direct evidence (blood, dna, bite impressions?) this dog is being detained and held from her owner with a holding charge of 25$ per day before the hearing.  With no date even set in sight, how can ANY owner even begin to prepare for this financial burden?

These fees amount to over $700 dollars currently for the owner and could easily be into the thousands by the time the case is heard with the County’s lack of cooperation and explanation so far. Also, if not paidin FULL at the time of this unknown hearing date, the dog will be KILLED.

The county “prides themselves in being Dog Friendly, User Friendly, and of course People Friendly” but myself and many others feel that greater support and contact with the owner and family of this dog is needed. This case should be expedited to ensure no more financial hardship to the family and to prevent this dog from wrongfully being killed.  This can be a learning lesson to improve the hearing process for pets in the future as well. A dogs life can be saved and a family can go home happy, all with a little bit of cooperation.

 

 

Please call the dog warden and make a complaint, leave a voicemail or anything you can to let people know about this. The dog wardens name is John and the number to call is 740-368-1915, repost and send to everyone you know to save this dog. Be sure to let them know the dog you are calling about is a female named katie. Thanks!
