My Story

My name is Simon. I am a mixed breed dog who was rescued by my family in 2011 after being abandoned during Hurricane Irene. Now I’m on death row.  Read more here.

Why should I care?

Simon was…in his own yard…taken from his own yard…defending his own family.  This is a civil rights issue and it could happen to you and your pet.

How can I help?

The more people that speak up to the Selectmen of Guilford, your local state representatives, and the Commissioner of Agriculture, the more likely Simon is to be saved.  You can help here.
