Today is an extremely impawtant day for the good folks of Legacy Boxer Rescue. I've told you the story before of the people who are suing LBR and one of our adopters for a dog they claim is theirs, even after it went through the full shelter hold and several months of waiting before being adopted out. The ramifications of this case could have a horrible effect on shelters and rescues across the state, as shelters would be told basically they could euthanize dogs with no legal issues but could be sued if they adopt one out! Many fine supporters have been helping LBR through this process, including our top dog pro bono legal team. Today is the day!! The hearing is being held this morning in Fort Worth, and we are all crossing our paws and hoping for the best.
Boxer Strong! Legacy Strong! Rescue Strong!
Edit: OMD! And did you know that today is National Rescue Dog Day?? Surely that's a sign we'll win!!!
Pupdate: The hearing is finished. LBR supporters packed the house! The judge will issue a ruling within two weeks. Keep those paws crossed!!
