We are being targeted in a campaign to harass us into giving a dog to an individual who claims it is his dog .
In late march we were contacted by a good Samaritan who had taken in a stray and could not locate its owner . Our volunteers posted the dog on lost and found sites and reached out to followers on Facebook. In accordance with the laws of the State of Missouri , we held the dog for 5 days and a Saturday before considering the dog for adoption.
This young male dog was malnourished , and required treatment for worms and ticks.He received vaccinations for distemper , hepatitis , parvovirus, kennel cough and rabies.He was also neutered and microchipped. He was not familiar with basic commands and showed fear and aggression towards men. We covered the cost of having the dog socialized and trained by a professional . After 6 weeks of care we had 3 qualified families under consideration when we were contacted by the person who saw a Petfinder advertisement for the dog and claimed they were the owner.
This person could not give us a date as to when they lost the dog , presented no proof of ownership, had no records of purchasing or adopting the dog , had no vet bills for the care of the dog , and had no rabies certificate . They stated the dog had been dumped or shot after being stolen . They had not filed any police report about the theft or possible shooting of the dog . They did not post about the dog to any of the many Facebook groups designed to help locate missing dogs..They did not present any social media posts sharing the news of their missing pet .They then demanded we hand over the dog to them and promised they would attack us legally and across the internet if we id not.
As legal guardians of the dog , I m Your Huckleberry Rescue could not in good conscience give a dog to individuals who had no record of owning the dog, vaccinating the dog , no record of ever having taken it to the vet , and who made no attempt to look for their dog when they thought it may have been dumped, and did not report to the police when they thought it may have been shot .
Now , as promised , the individuals who threatened to do so are smearing us across the internet and have recruited the help of many to assist them .THE IRONY is that had these individuals put as much effort into reporting , posting and looking for their dog as they have maligning the reputation of this rescue , they would have likely recovered the dog, or achieved some justice had it actually been shot.
We will not engage in a Facebook battle, but we did want to share our position with you . We assure you that we will always take action that protects the welfare of animals while meeting our obligations under the law. We thank you for your continued support as we work to uphold our standards in the face of this campaign of misinformation .
In your service ,

We got a message yesterday of 2 puppies found in a dumpster, yes you read that correctly, a DUMPSTER! Luckily for these pups someone did something about it. We meet them at Anderson Animal Hospital, where Dr.Wooden gave them a good checking. Other than have massive amounts of parasites , the pups look to be in good shape.
5 week old Heeler pups, little girl (Brooke) weighs 1.96 lbs. and her brother (Benny) weighs 2.98 lbs. We’ve started them on dewormer and have gotten them some very good food.
These pups will have the next 3 weeks to get to full health and then will be ready for adoption.
