PLEASE PASS ON AND CROSSPOST WIDELY

Lots of good news!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

JUNE 8th
Case AS2006-012 (this was the case number for Messina’s court)

Today’s hearing was “administrative”.

All our information was submitted. ACO’s were present and submitted their reports – apparently they’d been to Mr. Davis’ house 3 times, one time was to get the second dog we had found (white / brindle patches w/ the doubled chain) and euthanize him at Mr. Davis’ request, as he was “too aggressive for the owner to handle”.

Judge Messina reviewed evidence, looked at the pics and alond with the Parish Attorney, informed Mr. Davis that he was sending the case to the DA for criminal prosecution. The DA will decide, based on evidence, as to whether to prosecute or not. The dogs will not be released until this is resolved.

Mr. Davis will be charged on 3 counts of cruelty under state law, not just Parish Ordinance if the DA decides to move forward. If not, the case will return to Judge Messina for decision.

Elena has agreed with getting Phoenix to SAF for treatment!

JUNE 10

I spoke w/ Anne at SAF and, per Anne’s typical wonderful response…”Of COURSE we’ll take him”. I love Anne Bell. Anyway, going to find out if Phoenix has had any shots at all, and if not, whether JPAS can give him some before we move him to SAF. There, they’ll get him healthy and begin HW treatment.

Check the Blog for updates on when we get him to SAF!!!!!!
