Dear Hand4Paws,

I’m writing to you in regards to a sad case involving a young German Shepherd (named Bridges) who’d been rescued from a High Kill shelter in Georgia after he’d been dumped there when the young man that owned him died of cancer. After surviving at this shelter for some time, Bridges was finally rescued and was sent to a boarding facility in Butts County before being transported to his new home. During his stay at this boarding facility, Bridges was shot and killed by the owner Jose Ortiz (who was later found to be operating this boarding facility illegally). Bridges survived a high kill shelter but didn’t survive this boarding facility and Bridges never made it to his new home.

Even though no charges have yet been brought against Jose Ortiz, the Georgia Humane Society is now involved and are pursuing criminal charges of animal cruelty against Mr. Ortiz.I’m writing to your organization to ask whether you and your members would like to sign a Petition at the Care2 Petition Site (sponsored by Lauren Bjorklund) which is seeking Justice for Bridges: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/627/019/957/justice-for-bridges-the-sad-and-neglected-german-shepherd-shot-by-boarding-owner/?cid=FB_Share
We’d also really appreciate it if you would check out the “Honor for Bridges” Facebook page and share it with friends since the more people that know about this case, the less likely that other animals will share the same fate as Bridges:http://www.facebook.com/HonorForBridges
This is the new poster by the Georgia Humane Society on Bridge’s story (which shows a photo of Jose Ortiz one day after he shot and killed Bridges):http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=388172201254640&set=a.344832305588630.79675.344519782286549&type=1&theater
