woman gathers donations to reunite dog with owner. sued for "keeping" leftovers.

Unbelievable twist as man reunited with dog turns on woman who made it happen - National Dogs |

the shelter had a $400 fee to release the dog; the owner couldn't afford it; the woman gathered $800+ in donations and used it to pay for the fees and living expenses of the dog.

he's saying he's suing because she's not giving him the leftovers. she finally decided to refund the leftovers to the donators.

I just got a phone call from KTLA channel 5. Apparently, Dave has called to inform them that I am keeping the money raised for his dog. I have transferred $842.07 into my bank to reimburse myself for the shelter fees, vet and PetSmart shopping spree that I put onto my personal credit card. I had a discussion regarding the remainder of the donations and how he would like to spend them. I said it would be a good idea to pay off any outstanding tickets so that he will not be taken to jail in the future for having a warrant for unpaid traffic tickets. I asked if he had any bills that were due at the time. I told him that every dime that was donated would go to him and Buzz, but that I would not be giving him the cash. I explained to him that the money that was donated was a blessing for him, I wanted to be sure that we respected that and used the donations responsibly. He sat next to me and nodded his head, Not one response, question or concern.

After I hung up with KTLA channel 5, I tried to call Dave. His wife would not let me speak to him. She screamed at me that I was stealing their dog's money. She said they have called the news stations and that if I did not give them their money, they were going to call the police.

I am exhausted from this entire experience. This is the last thing I needed or expected. I will not be giving Dave or his wife one single penny, what I will do is refund the money that was donated to Dave. I have had my life and the lives of my children devastated by drug addiction. I will play no part in supporting anyone's habit. I just can't.

That being said, if you would like me to refund your donation that was made for Dave, please email me at and put REFUND as the subject. I will send the refund tonight. If you would like to transfer your donation that was for Dave to another urgent animal in this album, please email and put DONATE TO URGENT SBC DOG. I will put your donation towards a homeless animal that will live or die depending on whether or not a rescue has the funds to help them. If I do not get a response within 1 week of this posting, I will refund the amount donated with an explanation of why it is being refunded. I know not all who have donated will see this post.

So to sum this up, I have been reimbursed for all expense to rescue Buzz from the high kill San Bernardino City Shelter and reunite him with his owner Dave Thomas. There are donations leftover. The donations will NOT go to Dave after the stunt he has pulled. If you still want Dave to have your donation, I will have to ask you to send it to him personally. I do not have an email for him, maybe he will post it.

No good deed goes unpunished, right?

Thank you for understanding why I cannot proceed with this as planned. For those who disagree with my decision, please keep your thoughts to yourself. I don't think I can take another hit right now.

Wow seriously?!?

Man if I was the dog I'd be ashamed of the guy and just run away to have the lady as a new owner

Glad she took a better route in giving the people a refund or choice to carry it over to another rescue in need

If it were me....
I would've just bought a crap load of dog food, chews, toys, snack/treats, other dog stuff

boxed it all, gift wrapped, and dropped it off with a 'Dont open till Christmas' on it
and 'For Buzz'

Why wasn't his wife watching the dog while he was in jail

She screamed at me that I was stealing their dog’s money.
I didn't realize pets could maintain an estate.
