This is the Statement that Texas Tails of Hope Pet Rescue put on their Facebook page.
Letter from the TOH Board of Directors
by Tails of Hope Pet Rescue on Saturday, September 10, 2011 at 11:09pmTo All of our Supporters:
On behalf of the TOH Board, we would like to apologize for the inappropriate comments that were posted on our site and sent to many of our Facebook friends. Tails of Hope has worked hard to build a solid reputation as a rescue that strives to go above and beyond all ethical, legal, and professional standards. We are saddened by the recent attack on our character and reputation.
Earlier this year, Ashely Nicole Miller of Killeen was arrested twice for animal abuse (more details: http://www.pet-abuse.com/profiles/18230/) During her time in jail on these charges, she lost legal custody of her 12 cats and 10 dogs to the local Animal Shelter. Several weeks later, one of these dogs was taken in by Tails of Hope. Since that time, Ms. Miller and several of her friends (including Cat Lovesalot) have started a facebook campaign against all the rescues that took in her former dogs. The Rescues have been called "thiefs," "corrupt," and messages were sent to TOH fosters and adopters suggesting that our dogs are stolen. To be clear - ALL of our animals are legally received from area shelters (which are often overflowing.) We have absolutely no need to ever "steal" a dog.
We have been more than courteous in responding to Ms. Miller's inquiries. We do not intend to pass judgement on her in her pending abuse case, however, we can not knowingly allow any TOH dog to go to a home where there are questionable circumstances. We have blocked these individuals from our page and have been in contact with our attorney to pursue legal action against Ms. Miller and her friends. If you have received any of these messages or posts - we ask that you please forward a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any more questions, please feel free to email us.
Thank you for your ongoing support,
Tails of Hope Board of Directors
I want to say thank you to all the rescues that took in Scooby, Phantom, Koda, Cowboy and Apollo. For treating their wounds, both physical and emotional.... and for finding them good, loving homes. You will always have our support for that.
The followers of Ashley Nicole are so vile and irresponsible with their words and their actions. And Ashley has no idea the amount of evidence that is stacked against her. She continues to deny everything and sick people on others. And those others go blindly into the night, not knowing that their very actions are well documented and will only prove to discredit Ashley when all is said and done
. Stop the threats Ashley and her followers. And if you send anyone to my house, let this be a warning to you and your cult.... you come to my house to do harm to me, my family, property, my animals... I'm a gun toting Patriot that is not afraid to exercise my 2nd amendment right and Texas backs me up with that right to protect myself, my family, my property, my life.
