Dec 7, 2017 — Dear Friends of Lamby the Dog,
As we cross the 100,000 signature threshold, we want to say THANK YOU for taking time to sign the petition asking the courts to reconsider the order to have her destroyed. Destroyed. That’s the legal term for putting a dog to death and it makes your blood run cold.
At any moment, the Municipal Court judge in Dallas is going to announce a new date/time for a hearing on Lamby which will decide whether she dies or can have a second chance at life with a rescue group or in a sanctuary. The attorneys – who are working pro bono — have said they expect a bond to be required by the court in the amount of $2,000 to $5,000 in addition to court filing fees.
Please help with this next stage of this challenge by contributing to Lamby’s 2nd Chance Fund at https://www.gofundme.com/lamb-of-gods-2nd-chance-fund.
If only 8% of your donated a single $1, we could ensure the funds are available to help Lamby at this critical time!
Once this case is over, any monies not applied to expenses and Lamby’s welfare will be contributed to worthwhile rescue groups and charities that are helping dogs recover from abuse.
BACKGROUND: Lamb of God (Lamby) is a mixed-breed female dog that has been used as a prop by an aggressive panhandler in the Dallas entertainment districts. Lamby was forced to wear comical hats and glasses that cut deep into her fur by rubber bands while she was restrained within a little milk crate that was strapped to a bicycle’s handlebars and forced to pose for photos in exchange for money that went into the pockets of the panhandler. Witnesses have seen the panhandler feed Lamby candy instead of a proper diet and he had an astounding 16 warrants for his arrest. For months, citizens in these entertainment districts have called law enforcement and Dallas Animal Rescue to help get the dog out of her abusive situation.
106,884 have signed. Let’s get to 150,000.
