Just updating to let everyone know that Keystone will be going to a rescue on Saturday.

FureverHomez ( http://www.facebook.com/FurEverHomeZ  )  rescue has stepped up and offered to take Keystone in, provide all the care he needs, and find him his furever home when he is ready.


I would like to take this time to thank the people who are responsible for aiding in saving this boy and starting him on the right path...

Alyssa Taylor - The original owner of the dog. She has taken him in and cared for him until the rescue can pick him up. Kudos to Alyssa for doing her best to make sure Keystone has a long, happy life free from abuse. She withstood a lot of hard questions and battering, but she took it and hung in there until a rescue stepped up. Thank you Alyssa.

Ronda Hawk Balonis  for helping to uncover the truth about Keystone and the situation he was in.

Erika Noll for being the first one to realize something was fishy about the story posted on FaceBook and therefore drawing attention to it.

Amy Santelli-Ramp  for alerting me to inconsistencies in the story and helping sort it out.

Joan Jeffery Ryan and Michelle Pauzer for offering food donations to the rescue.

News-Item reporter Mark Gilger for the articles he wrote on Keystone.

And of course  Khonalea Lundy of FureverHomez for taking Keystone in.

Also a big thank you to every single person who posted on the different groups about this situation and all who signed the petition.
Every one of you are Keystone's heroes! Without you, Keystone wouldn't have this new chance at life.

If you'd like to continue helping Keystone or other dogs like him, please consider a donation to FureverHomez!

END UPDATE

 

 

This weekend there was a story in our local paper. A loose pitbull killed a cat. It was shot in the head (grazed) OR a wound from an ax, (there are conflicting stories on that) and was severely emaciated.
Over the weekend the owner (who claims she found the dog) posted on facebook asking for help.
Dozens of us stepped up offering to help her get the dog into a rescue.
She refused all help and eventually came up with a story claiming she found the original owner of the dog. This supposed owner claims to have had the dog when it was a just a newborn pup. This supposed owner also turned out to be a close friend of the woman who currently had the dog in her possession.

According to the article the dog was to be kept on the woman's property until Monday (in a cage), when the dog warden would come get it. Against orders this woman turned to dog over to the supposed original owner.

All efforts to help this woman were turned down. Now the fate of this dog is unknown. Half starved and wounded, it doesn't stand a chance unless a rescue intervenes and the police/warden charge this owner with neglect and ignoring the orders to keep the dog on property.
