Release Toby the Westie Back to His Owners' Care

This petition made change with 236 supporters!

Toby is a partially blind 12-year-old Westie. In the middle of his family's move to a new house, he wandered away and was picked up by local police. Toby was deemed to be abused because he has skin allergies which, combined with his age, have caused him to lose hair in places. This a common problem in purebred Westies, called "epidermal dysplasia." Toby is now at the pound without his hypoallergenic food and medication 'Apoquel' and 'Fluconazole,' away from his loving owners. With this petition, we hope to expedite the process to show that Toby is a beloved member of his family, who desperately needs to be returned home before falling ill at the pound. As a senior dog with many health problems, it is imperative that he is returned to his rightful owners as quickly as possible!

Toby is loved and cared for at great expense to his owners! He regularly goes to the vet and his prescriptions are up-to-date. The Garcia's are very anxious to have him home safe and sound!
