Hi Everyone Please help me try to save dog Brindi. I have been working on this cause since August 2008. It will soon be one year, since she has been held at the Halifax shelter. Her owner, Francesca has been fighting a legal battle to get her out since she was seized. They were going to euthanize Brindi in August 2008. The case went to the Supreme court and in January, 2009 the judge quashed the euthanization order. However, Francesca's ex-lawyer failed to submit a request to the court for her release. So the shelter would not let Brindi go home and charged Francesca with 3 by-law violations one hour before the expiration of the statute of limitations. She has to go back to court, but the court cases are backlogged and now Francesca's case may only come up in 2010. Francesca doesn't even have a lawyer yet, as her former lawyer withdrew from the case, without any recommendation to other legal counsel. In addition to that, he has sued Francesca for approximately $51,000. for fees. During the time he acted as Francesca's counsel, he never once submitted an invoice. In fact, he told her when she hired him, that his professional fees would be pro-bono for part or all, above his estimate of $12,000. I know this to be a fact, as I controlled the bookkeeping for donations and expenses. As well, I was an administrator on the Facebook group "Save Brindi" and I had set the fundraising goal for $12,000. Francesca is almost bankrupt at this point. Meanwhile poor Brindi will continue to be locked up in a shelter, that is only meant for short-stay periods. Only recently did the shelter give Francesca permission to visit Brindi 1/2 hour a week with over 10 restrictions. She is not even allowed to bring Brindi her beef bones, which she so loves. The bones are considered to be of "high value". Is that ridiculous or what!!! For your information, Brindi did not do anything to warrant a death sentence. She broke away from Francesca one day and ran to the edge of her property where a man & his dog were passing. They had a scuffle and Brindi left a small puncture mark on the other dog that didn't even pierce the skin. Since she has been in the shelter she was evaluated by a dog specialist and she was deemed NOT dangerous! She just needs a little training. Francesca had adopted Brindi from a shelter in 2007, after Brindi had been there for 2 years. We all know that locking an animal up for so long affects the animal in some way. But this can be fixed ! . So please, if you have not already done so, help Brindi by signing her petition, and view the video below, that my American friend, Gisele Veilleux made for me yesterday.
