Devastated Family Needs your Help in finding River & Libby
their beloved pets. River is pictured Left & Libby on Right.
Can you imagine going on a family vacation to find out that your dogs escaped from the family member’s home caring for them; and that would take you on a heart wrenching journey to get them back?
Setting up a website to spread the word, having local TV Channel 9 KCAL News do a story on you, not once but three times! Take frustrating phone calls from people claiming to have your dog, or claiming someone tried to sell them your lost dog for $100.
Well, this is exactly the experience of Natalie Tomlinson and her family, who after close to two months are still no closer to recovering their precious family pets, their little boy & girl furbabies -River & Libby.
And finally, most discouraging of all, arranging to meet a person who said they would bring your dog back..who never shows up at designated meeting place – but some time later phones to say “their child had become so attached” they wouldn’t be returning dog. Grrrrrrrrrrr
We here at AMTCTD blog cannot even imagine what this poor family has had to go through? When approached last Friday night at the Eagle Rock Farmer’s Market, and upon hearing this terrible story we agreed to do what we could to spread the word.
