The family of a young puppy, who has been in doggy “jail” for months, has announced that they will be faced with having to make some “difficult and costly decisions,” about their pet. Luna, a rescued pup, was seized by animal control from her family back in June.
The crazy reason? A bat, which may or may not have been rabid, was in the same house where Luna was – even crazier, Luna, who was just eight weeks of age at the time (too young for her rabies shot), was in her crate, in another room, behind a closed door at the time.
Even though Luna was cordoned off in another area of the home, local officials have decided that she should be quarantined at a veterinary hospital until December…”just in case” she was exposed.
A few days ago, after a court date, Luna’s family updated the fundraiser which was created to help cover legal fees and boarding costs:
Luna isn’t coming home today. But, starting tomorrow, we’ll be able to physically touch her again during our visits to the clinic. I can’t elaborate further at this time, but Tim and I will have to make some difficult and costly decisions. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
Luna’s owners are fighting the ruling because, according to state law, animals who are suspected of being rabid are held for just 10 days. Original article about Luna at this link.
