Our veterans deserve to be honored and respected. They willingly place their lives on the line to protect ours. Jim Bandy is one such person. He recently moved into an apartment complex with his certified service dog Zeus, after being homeless for sometime. Mr. Bandy and Zues finally had hope that their lives had turned around for the better. Zeus has been Jim's certified companion and service dog since April of 2012. He was certified a companion/service dog in 2013. Zeus was recertified by the VA health care provider last month at the VA clinic in Caldwell Idaho. Mr. Bandy moved into Hillcrest Apartments at 154 Sunset Drive, Ontario Or 97914 on November 8, 2017. After signing the lease and doing the walk through Jim presented the onsite Manager with a letter from his attorney and a stack of legal documentation proving Zeus is a certified service dog. The documents also demanded modifications of the lease to allow Zeus a certified service animal to reside with Mr. Bandy in the apartment as allowed under Federal Fair Housing laws. The documents stipulated the owner and staff of the apartment complex had 15 days to comply. Zeus is forced to spend his time alone in Mr. Bandy's van, unable to assist Mr. Bandy with his needs. Mr. Bandy is being bullied and treated as if he is the problem. Zeus gives Mr. Bandy the ability to live a normal life. Without Zeus, Mr. Bandy will be forced to live as a recluse. Please sign the petition giving Zeus and Mr. Bandy the justice and respect they deserve.
