WE NEED TO STOP THE GOVERMENT BULLYING THE LITTLE PEOPLE !!!!!!!!!
MM Pet Rescue saved dogs from high kill shelters and found them new homes. For the 5 1/2 months they were opened. they placed about 240 dogs in happy homes. On Dec 7, 2011, Sarasota County ambushed the rescue with 6 different inspections at 10 am. The rescue wanted to work with the county in anyway they could, but all the county wanted to do is to keep them closed. Please help and sign the petition and help them reopen.
Sarasota County has been charging me the highest cost for me to get and records from them. County emails cost me over $200. Getting court transcripts costs most people $3.50 per page. They charge me the maximun allowed by law, $7.00 a page. They are trying to bankrupt me. They also will not release public information to me. This is a case of goverment bullying a person and a rescue.
A Sarasota County employee told after my court date they intended to close me down the day of the ambush and I lost my court case before it even started.
An officer with Sarasota County Animal Control said to me 4 hours into the "ambush," they where not going to take the dogs BUT she has to see what the fire marshall says. The fire marshall made a "mistake" allowing me to move into the building wihtout a fire alarm. Thye building was red flagged as unsafe for humand and animals. I was given no time to correct his "oversight." As soon as they removed the dogs, the building was "safe" again and we were allowed back into the building.
An Officer of Sarasota County Animal Control said to a local reporter on their own that I was a scam and I was making tons of money selling dogs I bought from a shelter. Everyone knows in the rescue world there is no money to be made with all the vet bills and up keep.
They court decision talked about a dog named Radio in the Civil Case. The said I did not take him to the Vet and caused a him to have a score on his eye lid. Since thay would not look at my vet records or the records from Miami they refused to learn that Radio had eye surgery 2 days before the raid, He came from Miami with cherry eye. Sararsota County Animal Control said I NEVER TOOK HIM TO THE VET. They refused to look at my medical records or bills.
I also saved another dog from MDAS that had ricket and mange. MDAS did not tell me about. She was was a bout 8 weeks old. I had her for about 3 week and the day they took her she went to the Vet that morning for another mange treatment. The county vet said I caused the ricket because she was underwieght. In the 3 weeks she gain over 4 lbs. She came to me underwieght and she gained over 4lbs. County vet said I starved her. I supplied the vet records and the judge believed the county vet over written proof for MDAS and county vet she gain weight.
Breezer ( a old dog that the county killed). Breezer was going to be killed the day I saved him from MDAS. He was a mean old senior dog. He became my buddy after sometime. He has a tumor on his backside and he was to old to go through surgery. NO RESCUE WOULD TAKE HIM !!!! I was letting him live out his live here. Everyday I had to clean him because he could not hold it. HE WAS NOT IN ANY PAIN! The county said it burst at the rescue. I have witness to say different, if it ever burst. He was not a adoptable dog and they killed him. What next is the county is going to kill are seniors in nursing homes!!!!!!
Any question you can call me 941-412-4383
