Help Get My Dog Back
Organized by: Jonathan Barragan
Hello everyone. Recently we had a very troubling thing occur in my household. My grandma decided that it would be a good idea to take the family dog to the pound. When me and the rest of my family heard about this we were devastated. He's been a great dog for the past 6 years and we love him dearly. Today, I decided I would go to the OC animal shelter to get my dog back. When i walked in, we explained the situation and since I am 18 they put me as the rightful owner to my dog. Right when we thought things were heading in the right direction, the man told us that we would have to owe 400+ dollars in order to get my dog back due to them not knowing if he is licensed or had his rabies shot. I didn't think that they would bill me for all of this and I was only trying to do the right thing. But the man said since I am the considered as the rightful owner, I am the one that is charged with all of this and may even be taken to court if I cannot pay it. This broke my heart and made me feel very upset since I just wanted to get my dog back and do the right thing. I don't have a job right now but have been applying to a few. So please please please donate any money that you can to help me afford to get my dog out of the pound, and help me not be fined and possibly even go to court. I had no idea this would be a huge issue. But I am just doing my best to get my dog and bring him back home. Thank you so much to everyone that finds it in their heart to donate.
