If we cannot pay $2,200 by the 11th of EVERY month, our 'family' of Old English Mastiffs and Breeders Trust Paint Horses are at risk of being hurt or killed by Greenfield-Hancock Animal Management
See confirmation of this on the video of us paying monthly ransom. GHAM’s Management confirms at about minute 4 in the video on Save CMA's Family ! Link.
Greenfield-Hancock Animal Management (GHAM), located in Greenfield, Hancock County, Indiana received an anonymous call with accusations and a request for a ‘welfare check’ regarding our animals.
They came to our home on July 11, 2017 and illegally seized all of our animals in violation of my United States and Indiana Constitutional Rights.
We had not given them consent and refused them entry to our property or structures. GHAM officers then illegally confined us in our house while they went to get a search warrant which was based on the anonymous caller. Then they searched our house, barn and land.
None of the following regarding the complaint or search warrant was ever disclosed to us: The caller's name, the date and time of the call, or exactly what was said.
The Hancock County Prosecutor took three weeks to finally charge us with seven (7) counts of 'Animal Cruelty', even though GHAM'S own veterinarian, along with the Indiana State Board of Health, inspected our animals and concluded that they were in good shape and had not been abused. The Hancock County Prosecutor, is well aware of the veterinarian's and Board of Health's findings and conclusions but refuses to dismiss the charges.
They use the pending charges as a way of making us pay the $2,200.00 monthly bond. The longer it takes to get to court, the more money they can extort from us.
One of the deputy prosecutors told our attorney and us, "I will never agree to the release of the animals to you". This deputy prosecutor had not been the deputy assigned to handle the case.
A few days prior to the hearing, our attorney had reached an agreement with another deputy prosecutor that would have allowed for my animals to be immediately released to me. However, the women deputy prosecutor stepped in, took over the case, while the other deputy was on vacation and made a unilateral decision that she was not going to agree to the animals "ever" being released to us.
It seems that for some unknown reason, this deputy, who does not know us from Adam, has a personal vendetta against us, instead of being an objective public servant which is a duty she swore to uphold. She told our attorney and us that 'she would deal with deputy prosecutor Craig when he returned from his vacation'.
Just to be clear, she is not the elected Hancock County Prosecutor and we do not understand how one deputy prosecutor offered to release the animals and then another from the same office, can ignore the agreement that had already been reached.
GHAM will not allow us to even visit our 'family' or allow our vet to inspect their condition Not to mention two unaccounted for litters of newborn puppies, which they claim don’t exist. The animals, we are sure, have been traumatized by this illegal activity.
Among the animals confiscated were four therapy horses. These gentle giants are pedigreed with potential to win competitions.
These are irreplaceable horses, with rare bloodlines throwing gorgeous Breeder’s Trust Paint, offspring; specially trained or in training and proven to be good therapy horses, as are all the animals GHAM has in custody. Equine Therapy holds title as the most effective form of therapy and our Horses have been doing private therapy work while continuing to train in multiple disciplines since 1998.
In addition to our equine family, we also have English Mastiffs. These dogs have carefully planned and executed blood lines, with rare colors and exceptional characteristics which we breed and sell. They are also irreplaceable. They are used as therapy dogs for children with special needs. Earnings from sales are donated back to help more kids and critters.
Each and every animal has special training and abilities to help those in need of physical, mental, or emotional healing.
Due to being incarcerated in the so-called “rescue facilities” the careers of these beautiful healers has potentially ended. They are unable to continue training for competitions which raise money for those in need, training of youths, and physical therapy work for all therapeutic healing.
However, we pray we can regain possession of these animals soon enough. In that way, with much dedicated rehabilitation and healing from this trauma they may still have the ability to provide therapy for the physically, mentally, and emotionally challenged, as well as those challenged by economic situations, at risk youth, and veterans in need of an outlet.
These dogs and horses are treated as our family members. They lived in climate control carpeted home and barn. But now they have now been taken from us and placed in less than complimentary housing.
Authorities came on land that is owned free and clear with property taxes paid current, and took our personal property in violation of the 4th Amendment (Illegal seizure) as well as the 5th and 14th (both of which address due process).
Our long standing business reputation has been greatly damaged and we are suffering extreme financial loss because of these illegal activities by the county & city.
If you don’t believe that kind of thing happens, It is occurs all over the country. For instance, look at the local case of Upton vs Indianapolis, found with Google search, settled not that long ago. Authorities did the same thing to them, just a year and half ago.
Upton finally won his case and recovered his dogs, as well as some of the puppies that had been born while in captivity. Sadly, five (5) puppies and one dog died while in the “expert authority’s” care.
We now have retained the same attorney used by Upton, I. Marshal Pinkus, who specializes in cases like this. Pleadings have been filed for the animals’ release. Those pleadings can be seen on our web site page Save CMA's Family !
Please help us raise money to keep our animals alive. Save these amazing and beautiful friends of man. Any money raised/donated will go towards attorney fees to fight this injustice, monthly bond and board fees for GHAM, vet fees, as well as the care, maintenance & transport of the animals upon release. All of bond, board and veterinarian’s fees must be paid in full prior to bringing our family back together.
As of Feb 20th 2018 we have had to sell our home of 25 years (at half the appraised value) in order to pay $15,400.00 in Ransom Payments, $15,700.00 in Attorney Fees. We have spent $120,000.00 in last 9 months & done everything we can to save our family and now those resources are reaching their end.
As of Feb 25 2018 We have been Blessed to regain possession of our Family. All Alleged Charges Dismissed! See live video/ pics of their recovery and a month post recovery. on our Face Book page CMA's English Mastiffs
All our suspicions and concerns about their care now a reality. Post Animal Recovery Checks verify the need for special expensive feed, special expensive hoof care, supplements, x rays, mri's needed as well as further vet care needed to hope for a full recovery in 8 month to a Year for some, others are not as fortunate.
We need your help! All donations are appreciated. No amount is too little. If everyone who loves animals just gave one dollar we could cover the medical expenses stacking up from the abuse and neglect the animals received while unlawfully incarcerated at Hoosier Hooves & Hounds Rescue & Greenfield Hancock Animal Management. (Animal Control)
However powerfully this tragedy moves you, your donation would help the now released animals in need of expensive recovery., as well as continue to fight for everyone's constitutional right to own a pet. Hopefully to set a precedence for hundreds of cases across the U.S. So . . . PLEASE, PLEASE, HELP!!
