on behalf of Anthony Wang
In the early morning hours of August 9, 2018, a beloved family pet was 'mistakenly' euthanized by a careless individual that 'didn't wait to verify' he was euthanizing the correct dog. Moses was a freckle nosed, scarf wearing, good boy  and very loved by his family. Nothing will bring their baby dog back, but they can fight for justice to ensure this horrific thing will never happen again.  The Wang family will be contacting lawyers to help their case. Please, if you are able, donate to help them cover any legal fees they may incur. Thank you.  "> ">

We are still working with our attorney. Further investigation is in progress. I'm not sure how much I can share on here, but I will check with my attorney and as soon as he gives me the OK, I will update everybody. The county denied any allegation and refused to take any responsibility. In fact, they praised the director for doing a good job. We were extremely offended when they finally responded to our letters. Even though we presented them the actual fact and evidence, but they were extremely arrogant. They wanted to settle out side the court wit minimal media attention. If they were not guilty, then why would they offer to settle outside the court?

Life without Moses hasn’t been easy for my family, especially me. It has been over six months since his death, I’m still bothered by it. Everyday, I think about him. I miss him dearly. There are many nights that I find myself weeping while everybody is in bed. He was my friend, my pal, my best buddy.

November 17, 2012, just 3 months after my beloved Hutch passed away I met Moses in Cincinnati, Ohio Petsmart. About 2-3 weeks prior, I was browsing through Petfinder and came across a white puppy dog sitting in front of a fireplace, all smile and happy. I couldn’t help myself and decided to contact his foster family and the adoption agency. After exchanging several e-mails with them, I learned that, Shane (Moses’ name at the time, it was given by foster family), was a lab/Sheppard mix and was rescued from a kill shelter when the rescue agency found out that he was on the kill list. His foster mom told me that “Shane” (Moses) was a model citizen and she only had him for a couple months, but he helped her guide and introduce new foster dogs into the family. Moses was extremely friendly to all dogs and people. Without any hesitant, I told her that I would like to meet him. She told me that they had an open adoption event on November 17, 2012 at the Petsmart in Cincinnati, so that day, I drove 2 hours down to Cincinnati to meet them. I told my wife I just wanted to go check it out. At that point, we had no intention to get another dog because Hutch had just passed away 3 months ago. My first meeting with Moses was pleasant. I saw him in his little kennel with a tennis ball. He was very chill. His foster mom told me to wait for him on the other side of the store. She brought him to me. Moses was very tiny when I first met him. I’m pretty sure he wasn’t even a year old at the time, later was confirmed by the vet that he was probably born just a couple months after our son, Kellan. Moses was very friendly to me, he tried to jump on me a few times, but was very good overall. I spent about 20 minutes walking him on leash. He was very cute and beautiful. After I returned him back to his foster mom, I decided to put down $150 deposit, eventually his adoption fee. I took several photos of him and showed them to my wife when I got home. I didn’t tell her that I had already paid the deposit. I told her how good he was and he would be perfect for our family and if we didn’t adopt him now, someone else would in heartbeat. I finally convinced my wife to let me bring Moses home (in reality I was bringing him regardless because I had already signed the paper work, so thank goodness Jenn went along with it otherwise, I would be in deep trouble). I believe it was either Wednesday, 11/21 or Thursday 11/22, I went pick Moses up after work. Because I took him to our Vet for new puppy check up on 11/23. He slept in the backseat during the entire trip back to Columbus. Moses was very scared when I first brought him home. I had to slowly guide him into the home. When I first brought him to the front door, he walked in and then immediately stopped and would not move. I had to talk to him and assured him that it’s ok, then he walked with me to the living room and then stopped again. I had to repeat that process with him in each room. I think at that moment, I had earned his trust. Finally, he hopped on the couch and fall asleep. The next day, Moses had one of his 3 accidents in his life time in the house. He peed in front of the front door. Even though he has only been to our house for less than a day, he knew he had to go to the door if he had to pee, but at the time we’re still getting to know him, so we didn’t know he had to go pee. We guided him to our patio sliding door and that was it. He never peed in the house again until several years later, when my in law was in our house watching our son while jenn and I were away, she slept in and didn’t let Moses out, so he couldn’t hold his pee.

Moses was such a special family member and a great buddy to me. He was extremely gentle to our son, Kellan. He immediately bonded with Kellan. Kellan wasn’t even a year old when I brought Moses home. At the time Moses wasn’t a year old either. We have so many photos on those two together. Kellan laying on Moses’ bed while Moses eating his treats or playing with his toys. Everytime Kellan put his hand on Moses’ treat or toy, Moses would stop and waited for Kellan to be done. Moses never once barked or growled at Kellan. However, he would make some noise when He saw or heard Jenn and I arguing. He would immediately get in between us and put his front paws on me or Jenn. Sometime I was embarrassed because Moses had to be the mediator for us. Moses was extremely polite as well. If you leave your plate full of food unattended, Moses would not even try to eat it. However, he would sit next to it and stared at it. He would not eat anything on our plates unless we gave him the ok. There was one accident though. I think it was either his first or second thanksgiving in our house, Jenn baked pumpkin pies and left it on the kitchen counter. When we came home, Moses had eaten both of them, I think. I guess he couldn’t resist Jenn’s baking.

Between 2012-2015, our family was happy with Moses. He brought us joy. He was our son. He enjoyed being with his family and attending doggie daycare. Moses loved playing with his friends at Dogs Rule doggie day care. When I took up a higher position with my company, we had to sell our house and move to Illinois. Moses moved to Illinois with me first while Jenn stayed in Ohio with Kellan, waiting for Kellan to finish school. Moses got depressed because Jenn and Kellan weren’t here during the first two months, but when they finally came, he was very happy. After living in a tiny apartment for about 7 months, we decided to rent a house and at that time we found Moses a doggie day care in East Peoria. Moses loved going to Play All Day and we enjoyed watching Play All Day posting Moses’ photos and video clips. Moses went there twice a week, Monday and Thursday and when we went away for the weekend, Moses would spend the weekend there. He truly loved Play All Day, he loved playing with his friends and all the staff members.

Sometime I blame myself for Moses’ death. If I didn’t take the promotion, then we wouldn’t have to move to Illinois. If I didn’t move everybody to Illinois, then Moses would still be here with us. Moses trusted me with his life. He was loyal to me and my family, but I’ve failed him. I’ve failed to take care of him. He was so wonderful to us. I miss him so much. I miss seeing him wagging his tail and greet me when I come home from work. I miss picking him up at the doggie day care. Everytime I went pick him up, he would run so fast to me and the staff had to get a hold of him on leash. He looked like a horse with his two front paws kicking up high. I miss his company at night. He is always there with me when I stay up late working. I liked to watch some chick flick movies. Many times I felt embarrassed for watching it so I would dive my head toward Moses and snuggled with him. I can’t do that anymore. I wish that I didn’t apply for the promotion. I wish that I didn’t move to Illinois. I just want my Moses back. I’m so hurt inside and I don’t know what to do to ease my pain.
