The horrors of loosing a pet in a fire.... but not by the fire itself...

I am writting this article today to comment on the mix-ups and the consequences of people that have no right to interfere taking matters into their own hands.

Has anyone reading this ever had a bad day, and made a decision based on what the person in front of them said or represented as facts.. And in the end find out that the person did this to deceive and was actually already planning with ulterior motives..

Well pet owners beware, in Miami Shores, miami there is a place where this happens and here is one such case.. A case where a great injustice is being committed and a loving pet owner is in danger of loosing his most prized possession, not only his beloved pet but his best friend..This comes after a house fire almost destroyed his home and the pet was taken away by animal rescue and delivered to this so called animal clinic in Miami...

And all because of a lying, worker at Miami Shores Animal Clinic, who made false statements and promises to a concerned and loving owner...

Please read below and if any of you find this as bad as I do, please write the clinic on their google local page and tell them... if you can show support and that would be greatly appreciated...

Here is a link to the Animal Clinics website: miamishoresanimalclinic.com

Happier Times in Antonios life: Still a puppy and with his loving owner



Still more pictures of this wonderful dog growing up... 




From the pet owners own mouth: 

I will never understand how and why the entire team at this clinic would set out to make sure I lost the only thing left after the fire at my house, my dog Antonio. The Miami Shores Animal Clinic (MSAC) received Antonio by way of Animal control. I called their establishment and spoke with one of the staff who told me I had ONLY TWO OPTIONS with regards to Antonio. I could receive Antonio by paying what was sure to be a bill they had taken liberty of assuming I could not afford only to have the police come fine me and remove the dog days later. My other option was to sign a release of ownership over to the clinic so he could then be transferred out of Miami-Dade County and to the Broward Humane Society where I could then readopt him. I couldn’t understand why a release was necessary, but I was absolutely assured by their staff member Jennifer that I would have the chance to get my dog back as I would be included on knowing when the exact moment Antonio would be transported to the Broward facility. I visited him over the next couple days and the clinic saw firsthand the special relationship I had with this animal. I met the veterinarian caring for him and asked him what was next for his recovery. I was saddened to hear that it could possibly be weeks before he would get released. Strangely, hours after I left the clinic that same very day as the news from the vet, I received “the warning call” that Antonio was being release to Broward the very next day given his progress. I did not get that call the next day so I called and strangely Jennifer was off. I was devastated when Jennifer called me upon returning to the office where she said he had been transported to Broward already and that’s all they could say since I signed the release! I spent the next 7 days scouring Broward shelters for my dog. NEVER did ANY shelter receive Antonio, especially the one in which I was assured he went to. I was back at Miami Shores Animal clinic meeting one of the managers name
