The Stolen Pet Awareness Fund

My best friend, Ralphie, was stolen by a coward who saw him as nothing more than easy money. I thought he had just escaped for the first two days. But the sneaking suspicion that he may have been stolen slowly crept into my head because of all the stories I had heard while looking for him, and then I checked my cameras. This lowlife pulled up and, depending on my little guy's kind nature, yanked him out of my yard and drove away. I'll have the video up and linked shortly. 

I heard countless stories of dogs being stolen when I was out looking for him. I want to make it clear in my neighborhood (and in all city neighborhoods if this approach works) that it is not just a brush-it-off-and-get-on-with-your-life moment when your family member is stolen. I want to make a lot of noise about how evil it is to steal a pet, and how horrible it feels to not be able to trust your neighbors. 

I'm an activist by nature, as it turns out. And I'm new to this, feel free to correct me if I have made any mistakes or ask questions if you have them. I'm open to criticism. 

First, I want to plaster this guy all over the place, show my neighborhood what they may not have known, and try to make sure that people see the pain that it causes. 

I will be keeping track of receipts and making sure that you feel that you can trust me with your hard earned money (which I hate asking for, but there are a lot of good people out here who want to help and I am new to believing in people again).

Literally anything you can give is taken with the Utmost Seriousness and Gratitude. You people are the reason I don't just scream at the world and give up again.
I've had a hard enough time creating this, never mind asking you to hurry. 

Thank you in advance, I'll also thank you after.
