Zoning board taking therapy pets from 7-year old with Anxiety DisorderSubmitted by Rusty Shackleford on Wed, 08/20/2014 - 08:28
This is why zero-tolerance policies are ridiculous.
Town zoning board taking (stealing) healthy therapy pets from 7-year-old Jaxon Torres, who suffers from Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Lawrence has a 4 pet only rule. Although the animals are healthy and well-cared for, animal control has given them until Friday to get rid of four of the dogs, or they will be forcibly removed from the property.
“In regards to dog nuisance, i.e.: odor, condition of property, noise (I found) Ms. Diaz’s property to be without those concerns and to be in impeccable condition"....
As somebody who grew up in a house with seven German Shorthaired Pointers, and would not be alive today if it wasn't for a very special pooch, this story rips at my heart. If anyone tries taking my dogs there will be a stand off.
Please try to get these control freaks to change their minds.
