Family and friends, Blue and Blood, I am in need of assistance. As most of you know, for the past two and a half years, I was employed with the Damascus Police Department. For the majority of that time I was a canine handler. My canine, Emmy, has stayed at my house for that duration. I have fed her, housed her, took her to the vet, and she has become part of my family.
In July 2014, I resigned from the Damascus Police Department thinking that Emmy belonged to me. However, due to a misunderstanding with my contract, the Town has informed me that she is still Town property and they will be auctioning her off to the highest bidder.
Not only that, but Mayor Jack McCrady has said publicly that they may not accept my bid even if I raise the money to bid on her. My fellow canine handlers know the strength of the bond built between a canine and it's handler, and tearing that bond apart is damaging, both to the dog, and the handler. Help me keep Emmy at home with her family, where she belongs. I need a minimum bid of 3,000 dollars to have a chance to keep Emmy. Thanks to help from my sister, Jennifer Dawn Reedy and close friend Paula Shupe, we have set up a youcaring account to accept donations. I am also starting this petition to urge the Town Council and Mayor Jack McCrady to accept the bid on my partner Emmy and not give her to someone else. Please donate to my cause if you can. Emmy and I appreciate your support.
This petition is to urge the council to accept my bid on my partner, Emmy, to prevent losing a member of my family. I would gladly die for her, and she would do the same for me. Sign this petition, post this, share this, talk about this and help spread the word. I know you all will because I have honorable friends who do the right thing. Thank you in advance for your support, and God bless you. Justin Miller
