Ashley Crawford  TAYLOR, MI
Flash got loose this morning and was shot in the face. Many of you have been asking me to make a way to send donations for him. I appreciate all the care and support we have been getting from everyone. He is such a sweet dog and we are so sad that this happened to him. Any money you wish to send will go to his medial care and hospital stay and is greatly appreciated.

I am going to close this account and just pay anything extra left on my own. I want to pay the hospital bills off as soon as possible. I wish I could thank each one of you more personally but there are so many of you. You guys are the best!

Flash is doing better than I could have expected, he is not his normal self but for his situation is doing awesome! He is so precious :) I got him a soft cone to wear while I can supervise him.

I found out the new hospital he is at is accepting donations towards his bill, if it so happens more money is raised than needed to cover his medical bill. I want to donate any extra money to the PAWS Clinic nearby. I really appreciate all this help and did not expect it.

There was a time when being a good neighbor meant looking out for each other. We kept an eye on each other’s kids who played in the street. We helped elderly with heavy lifting. We watched over someone’s house if they were away, and we would gather someone’s lost pet until they were found. I personally find it heart breaking how gun culture has warped the minds of Americans. The man who did this had many options to choose from, including retreat. Though some think he was within his rights, I find this man to be morally wrong, weak minded, and cowardly. The fact that American culture condones gun use in this manner, people need to realize that the fear this produces is the true source of terror. Americans are the number one killer of Americans because of repugnant people like this man who make poor decisions with a gun. Please be diligent with your pets. Your neighborhood is a dangerous and toxic space.

For those of you who chosen to accuse Flash of being aggressive, criticize his owner, make remarks about Flash being loose, question this fundraiser, etc. - if you have nothing nice to say and have no love and compassion in your heart for Flash and this family, maybe it would just be better to say nothing , to not post on this or any other fundraiser, and perhaps take a look in the mirror. Dogs do escape from their yards, people do make mistakes, and shooting a dog who has not attacked you is uncalled for. All the perpetrator had to do was go inside his home and call Animal Control. This fundraiser is to save a dog's life, not be a sounding board for people who have nothing better to do than to post negative comments and make false accusations. This is a single woman with 2 children to support and a dog who is an important part of their family and he needed urgent medical care. If you have nothing good to say, please say nothing at all. This is an important fundraiser to help an innocent, loving dog. Please respect it as such.

I truly hope this man is charged with a weapons felony. I'ts obvious he was not fearing for his life when he opened fire in a neighborhood and he's fortunate no one else was injured. The fact is that dogs can get loose and they shouldn't be gunned down if it happens. Prayers for a speedy recovery.

My friend lives 5 houses down from where these dogs reside. They have been loose NUMEROUS times. The guy who shot the dog DID NOT enter his house and retrieve his handgun. It was on him and he's licensed to carry it. It's not illegal to discharge a firearm within city limits when the reason for discharge is self protection/preservation. All you idiots arguing about some damn "fur baby" and its rights are exactly that - idiots. And to the guy saying "you should call the prosecutor and hope an emotional plea can help" - get a fucking clue. Charges aren't brought or dropped on emotional pleas. You're a fucking disgrace. These dogs should be put down because the owners can't keep them in the house period. This isn't the first or second or third or even FOURTH time these dogs have gotten loose. No animal is worth a human life and you better believe if you live on my block and your dog aggressively comes on my property, it won't live to make it to the vet.

So many negative comments on here, if you think this is a scam then get the hell off the page! Not everyone in the world are scammers and trying to pocket other people's money just for the hell of it! Situations come up where some people really can't afford another bill! Vet bills are expensive (my pit was shot by my neighbor last year and i had to ask for help as well) get over yourselves and stop trying to be so negative like y'all don't have anything better to do! Maybe you people bashing this campaign know the douchbag who did this and are trying to turn the tables on the owner... animals get out of fences sometimes, it happens! Get over yourself and keep scrolling till you find someone else to call a fraud,,Praying for flash! ❤️

I am looking forward to the owners to be ticketed for animal abuse or better yet arrested for animal abuse. Shame on you too the owners, you shouldn’t even be allowed to own any animals.
