Dandy's Vet Fund

$2,520 of $2,520 goal

Raised by 43 people in 35 months
On January 9, 2016; in Monroe County, Indiana, our twenty-seven year old miniature horse was brutally attacked by three pit bulls which jumped over the fence into the pasture. Dandy Do Right is a National Grand Champion Youth Driving Horse. This is a miniature horse who loves children and they love him. Someone's careless behavior by letting their dogs run may have cost us the joy in our live's which Dandy brings as well as the joy in others' lives. Dandy was taken to the vet clinic for intensive care. The pit bulls caused horrific damage that the Vet believes can be healed. He will forever be changed but may live to encourage children and others with disabilities to stay strong and live well no matter the disability. We do not know who their owners are or where they are located. They may never be held accountable for their crimes or made to pay the large vet bills we are incurring on a daily basis. We are asking for help with Dandy's vet bills.  We think the amount we are asking is on the low side. Whatever is left over will be used to help other owners who are unable to pay their full vet bills in Dandy's name, Pets Alive, & The Monroe County Animal Shelter. Please consider some amount. Each dollar adds up.
Thank you!

Dear friends;
I am so pleased to tell you that Captain Ryan Davis informed me this afternoon that they have found the owners of the dogs that attacked Dandy. They will receive fines for ordnance violations. I will be able to access the report on Tuesday and speak with someone in Court Services for a subpoena to access the whole file on the investigation. After which we can try to access some of the rest of the $8,000. But most importantly;
We have:

I called the Huntington County Sheriff about the dogs; and that Captain Davis from the Monroe County Sheriff's Department had not received a call back from Huntington County Animal Control. Within only three hours a detective from Huntington County called. YAY!! I have his info and called and emailed it to Captain Davis. Captain Davis received my email and was planning on calling him late this afternoon.

The Detective is an animal lover and wants to help in any way he can!!

Pray for fruit!!

One of the dogs had a tag from Huntington County.

Take them to court and make them pay! It is unfair to the owners. The pit bulls should be put down NOW.
