Washoe County, Nevada has a STUPID (Decades Old Rule On The Books) that will KILL Koda – A U.S. Army Veteran’s Service Dog.


My name is Tim Kooy from Reno, NV, an Army Veteran and Koda is my side kick.  We have an extraordinary bond and basically we are inseparable except when I’m at work.   Koda helps me when the wave of anxiety rushes in and he is a part of me which keeps me O.K.

We need to hire an attorney for My 3 yr old husky Koda because he was declared dangerous yesterday and he’s NOT.  If I cannot meet minimum requirements (dont think I can meet kennel size minimums) to keep him or win an appeal, he is scheduled to be euthanized at the end of the 30 days.

If I end up having to surrender Koda to animal control to be killed I want the biggest group of people there I can get in protest, I want the news, I want everybody to know what they’re doing to him.  Who’s down for showing up when/if I have to hand him over to be euthanized? All this because he got into a doggie fist fight?

I really need the support and he loves people and other dogs so it’ll be good way to say bye.  He wont be able to play and will be muzzled but he might like it.  I’m not sure how I’m going to be able to do it alone.

So who’s willing to help me make a fuss that they can’t ignore?  So the code gets changed. And this never happens again.  Watch our video to see how this happened.  Everything will be transparent.  We will answer your questions.

Thank you
Tim & Verna Kooy
