Default The Lucky Dog Scam

Has anyone else seen this??



http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/story/19...kRosY.facebook

I'm not super emotional or someone who cries easy but I did watching that. I hope that the lady running that is fired and some sort of charges are brought against her.

Long story short for anyone who can't watch the video. The Humane Society was charging $100 to get a dog labelled as a 'Lucky Dog'. That was suppose to mean the dogs would not be put down and the adoption fee was paid so it was easier to rehome them. They were taking the money and then putting the dogs down. Then when then put the dogs down they sent letters to people who had given up their dogs and had them listed as lucky dogs and people who sponsored the dogs saying the dogs were adopted.

I'm not in that area but is there anything someone can do to make sure something is done?

I also hope they gave the reporter his money back since they didn't even wait until they were out of the parking lot to put the dogs down.

Wow, what a horrible story. It's really unfortunate that things like that can happen.

It's called obtaining money under false pretenses and it is a crime.
