For those of you who have been following the plight of poor starved Roxy, who was EU'd by Miami Dade AS even tho there were rescues & individuals willing to step forward and save her - please consider signing this petition !!

Thank you,
Mike

Roxy's thread here:
http://www.germanshepherds.com/foru...mi-fl-6y-o-f-roxie-starved-rip-poor-girl.html

The petition (over 2000 sigs already !).

Here is a petition on behalf of Roxy, a severely emaciated GSD, owner-turn-in to Miami Dade, who paid for the crimes committed against her with her life. She stood proud and alert, her ears up, for the camera after her owner signed her death warrant. She was killed immediately after turn-in.

The crimes committed against her created an intense outcry from animal lovers and advocates across the country.

A tripple header:

1. Her owner's abuse/neglect for her health and quality of life cost Roxy her life.

2. Why were charges not levied against the owner, or an investigation held? Regardless of cause or health issues, it is reprehensible beyond words to allow a life to suffer and waste to the extreme state of emaciation found with Roxy.

3. The unwillingness of the shelter to allow rescue and rehabilitation for Roxy. Many rescues and individuals stepped forward to help. Roxy had a local rescue ready to take her in. Policy should dictate that an animal brought in for euthanasia be signed over to the shelter for disposition.

Here is the petition:

I don't comment alot but this is heartbreaking...I think that the petition is needed AND the TV Stations, newspapers and more need to be told what happened here.

Reading the line and she stood tall with her ears for her picture...did me in...

This can't ever happen again...and the sad thing is, it happens more than we know. Sadly, Judy

I will pass this on to my rescue friends.

Animal Planet. I think they should dump Miami- Dade and stop making them look like heroes. From what I have been able to determine, this business of euth'ing animals even when a rescue has committed to them is not unusual in this shelter. I'm sure Roxy is NOT an isolated example of what can happen here. (It's an awful place by the way - HUGE, with hundreds of dogs, cats, and who knows what else at all times. The numbers aren't their fault - their policies are.)

I signed too. Is the Miami-Dade Animal Cops still on? I don't watch Animal Planet too much any more. If it is, we should complain to Animal Planet.

i havent seen any recent episodes of animal cops from miami -dade in a while. They're usually doing reruns and new episodes of arizona, new york or michigan. Animal planet doesnt usually endorse things once they find out what they're endorsing is not doing their job.

I believe AP is owned by the Discovery Network. There is nothing on their website which gives you a link to connecting with the powers that be. I'm going to see if Google has any info.......

Please post that here if you find it, I would like to "share" the petition and our disgust with them.

I did send a note today to all the powers at the shelter + the mayor, the commissioners & their public relations office stating that the GSD community was not going to just go away quietly on this & that we wanted an explaination and proof that there would be policys put in place to prevent this from occuring.

No answer so far, but my next step will be to contact the media (local & national) and any candidates running for MD office in Nov. & maybe that will get their attention.

If any of them respond to my note, I will post in this thread.
