Duke and Max have been with us since they were puppies. These dogs are apart of our family and we want them home. On November 17th 2018 our dogs were taken from us for a investigation against a Larimer Humane Society officer. We have fought the initial charges and as of December 28th those charges were dismissed. Unfortunately the DA was not happy with that result and now is trying to charge us under county statue. This has become a drawn out process to keep fighting for our dogs to come home. Both Duke and Max have protected my family from country living. We have had a variety of wild animals come onto our property. My dogs were raised to be a family companion. They have been shown love and plenty of attention, my children actively play and against my wishes let them climb into bed at night with them. These dogs are both very dear to our hearts and are deeply missed. We have fought are way through the first set of charges with the hope that we would see are dogs and have them home December 28th. We are now asking at this time to help us continue the fight. This has been a extreme financial hardship to our family during this time of year and with the courts want to continue fighting this case. We just want our dogs home with their family.
