Save Cooper! A dog who is facing euthanization for protecting his family on his property.

Cooper, a five-year-old hound mix bit a person while on his property. As a result, the City of Palm Coast detained Cooper and set him on the immediate track for euthanization because the City of Palm Coast has a strict policy to euthanize any animal that bites any individual. The absurd law does not take into account the context in which the situation occurred, and historically and currently ignores independent animal behaviorist that are qualified to determine if an animal is dangerous or not. As a result, Mrs. Benton spent nearly $10,000 of her personal money in attorney fees fighting for Coopers life. 

Additionally, Mrs. Benton approached Palm Coast City Mayer Milissa Holland with a resolution and plea to release Cooper to the rescue ranch, an organization devoted to helping animals. This organization has the resources, and wants to take Cooper into their custody for the remainder of his life. Additionally, the rescue ranch carries multi-million dollar indemnity policy and will release the City of Palm Coast of any responsibility of Cooper once in their custody.

We at Saving Cooper are urging the City of Palm Coast to please Save Cooper, a five-year-old hound mix. He is young, and not out of control. There is an organization dedicated to animals with resources and personnel who wish to take him in for the remainder of his life. We beg you please! Enough time and money has been spent on both sides. Please let Cooper live the remainder of his life at the rescue ranch.
