JoJo was a good family dog - living with small children and playing with other neighborhood children until he was taunted and teased. In addition to hurling pieces of concrete at him and spraying him with a hose, they would coax him into coming in contact with his electric fence. They would laugh at him when he cried out in pain. Two of his tormentors were eventually bitten,due to these antics and Los Angeles County Animal Services was called out. They presided as judge, jury and executioner in what can only be described as a biased hearing. JoJo doesn't deserve to die. JoJo has a family with children who love him and tried to fight for him, but, all of their evidence of the torment was ignored. Kind attorneys are helping the family pro bono to fight for their rights. Despite their generosity, expenses for JoJo's case are climbing. Los Angeles County demanded a bond of over $5,000. There are a multitude of court filing costs and expenses. Rock and Rescue and S.T.A.R.T. are assisting with those costs but need assistance from donors to keep up this fight.

Please also sign this petition demanding JUSTICE FOR JOJO and seeking the exercise of discretion under the law to place JoJo with any appropriate restrictions, rather than kill him for defending himself.
