Now that COSR/Sanderbeck have stated in open court that their goal is to make sure ALL animals that are obtained by ALL rescues from the moment they get possession, the real agenda is in the open. The attorney wants severance of all rights of the owner no matter the circumstances thatbrought that dog into a rescue situation.
This is a real threat to every dog owner, every pet owner, should this case fail. We simply cannot allow it to fail due to lack of funds to pay the lawyer.

Background:
While Veronica Covatch was at Sheltie Nationals in April 2014, her Ch Sheltie, Piper, got out of a friend's yard in Ohio and was picked up by Franklin County Animal Control, and she was scanned in the field for a microchip. Finding one, she was brought in to the FCAC facility as an ID Trace. The implanting vet was contacted on Good Friday, and advised he had to do a manual look up of the records. However, as the Easter Holiday weekend passed, by Monday her ID Trace had been changed, and her paperwork then said "No response - can't do anymore - SG" and Piper (along with her microchip number and the name of the implanting vet) was turned over to Central Ohio Sheltie Rescue, run by Penny Sanderbeck. Penny Sanderbeck refused to return Piper to her legal owner, Veronica Covatch, who contacted her within hours of her acquiring Piper from FCAC. A legal battle for Piper ensued, with Penny Sanderbeck hiding Piper from Veronica for 15 months before the court ordered Penny Sanderbeck to return Piper by the end of the day, or forfeit her bond and go to jail. Currently Piper is residing with her legal owner, Veronica Covatch, while the case is in the Court of Appeals. The legal bills continue to escalate, and will continue to climb when the trial begins. With all their counterclaims and appeals, it looks as though COSR/Sanderbeck are trying to draw this out as long as possible and attempting to bankrupt Veronica so they can win by default if she becomes unable to pay her legal fees. We CANNOT let this happen. This case will set precedent against rogue rescues and those who aim to steal people's dogs. This can happen to YOU. Please help us support Veronica and ease her burden for these legal fees. They are already IN EXCESS OF $150,000!!!! Your entire donation goes directly to the lawyer to help offset the staggering legal fees.

We appreciate everyone who supports Piper and are grateful for you. Thank you.

Research has shown that Veronica and Michelle are the FIFTH owners this "Rescue" has done this to - and some of them didn't get their dogs back!

Its funny how the rescue knows they are wrong so this is their only option they have. The lawyer is a pos just like Sanderbeck. Why even have a rescue org if youre just going to do more harm than good?

Pet owners have got to stand against this attempt to legitimize theft by rescue.

Wow. What really is the true agenda of these shelter people etc. ? They can't possibly hope to gain any leaverage. Taking Veronica back to court only shows that the original shelter woman just wants to make noise and really needs to find other things to occupy her time. It is obvious to the rest of the fancy she and they are not really in the business to shelter dogs but are after some gain they hope to achieve. Sickening.
