In July 2008, Brindi was seized and put on death row. This was after she had two scuffles with other dogs and got loose accidentally without even touching a dog. She never bit a person. Surely it was a mistake! But when I tried to get her back, the city refused to listen to me, or my neighbors, trainer, vet, groomer, kennel owner, and dozens of neighbors and friends. It's been a long, traumatic, destructive battle and Brindi is still not safe - in fact a judge just washed her hands of the matter and instead of ruling about it, gave her back to the city that wants to kill her! Nearly four years in the pound and it's not over!
BRINDI MEDICAL & LEGAL DEFENSE FUND
Court fees, official transcripts, legal advice, medical costs, and all sorts of other things really add up! If you would like to help out financially with the effort to free Brindi, please go here:
Vegetarian, non-smoker, architect/academic, sought a change of lifestyle on the eastern shore of Nova Scotia. My plan was to renovate a heritage house, get it off the grid, and live quietly in peace and harmony with my dog and two cats.
Halifax had other plans. Will we recover?
PS I'm not really a mom to Brindi - I adopted her when she was a full-grown girl. When they seized her, it felt like they took my partner and best friend.

Note: Myth-blasters say the Animal Rescue Site is legitimate. However it doesn't devote 100% of its revenue to animals, as it claims; it is not a non-profit entity. But it does send a big share of its revenues to towards animal shelters and sanctuaries.
