My friend Gabriela was out of town for the holidays, while friends and family took care of her son's precious dog, Lola. When the family returned the first week of January, they found that their dog, a Yorkie, was gone. Lola got out and a neighbor that didn't know the family, took Lola to animal control. So Lola was at Mckinney animal control from Dec. 26th to Jan. 2nd. At this time, she was given to MOKA animal rescue - 214-233-6652, she has been texting with a man, a volunteer, named Jimmy there who has not helped her at all. Her family in the meantime, had posted flyers throughout the neighborhood, but no luck. When Gabriela returned from out of town, on January 4th, she knocked on doors all throughout the neighborhood, trying to find Lola - still no luck. Finally, she found the neighbor that had brought Lola to animal control. Animal control denied that there was a Yorkie at their facility then, but after many attempts, they gave her MOKA animal rescue as where Lola was. When she got in touch with MOKA, they told her that Lola was given up for adoption. Her son, Diego just turned 7 yesterday and is heartbroken about his dog and doesn't understand. MOKA refuses to give Gabriela any information about the family that adopted Lola or where Lola is. This just isn't right. No family would wan't to keep a dog, knowing that it is a family pet.
It's really a theft of her dog. It's like losing your child at Walmart, having someone turn her in to the front desk, who sends the child to child protective services and your child is adopted out within days. UNIVISION TV is coming to her home on Monday, January 21st at 10am to interview her about this sad situation. Gabriela's primary language is Spanish, and I feel that she is not getting appropriate attention about this because her grammar is not as good in English. This is why I am writing the email on her behalf.
Attached is a photo of her son and Lola and a link to the McKinney town buzz where she posted. We would like to get an English news channel to cover this because we don't know if the dog's new owner etc… speaks Spanish and Univision is only in spanish. We also like to put pressure on MOKA to make right this terrible injustice.
Gabriela's direct cell phone number is: 469-219-9375. Her email is: Gaby Hernandez - email@example.com.Also, feel free to contact me on my cell: 214-537-1917 so I can help her and you with the process.
With appreciation and looking forward to hearing from you soon, hopefully!

Letter to the Editor: How Can We Get Our Dog Back?
TSB Community ContributorJanuary 13, 2013 4:01 pm
Submitted by Gabriela HernandezMy family and I were on vacation during the holidays and my mom stayed with our dog Lola, a Yorkie, at our house. When we returned home, Lola was gone.
The story that we have pieced together is that somehow, our dog got out and one of our neighbors called the City of McKinney Animal Control, which took her to the Collin County Shelter on Dec. 26. The people at animal control gave her up for adoption to Moka Dog Rescue on the 2nd of January. We got home January 3rd at night. On the fourth we went looking door to door looking for her because she's part of our family.
We called animal control since we found out she was there Saturday through Monday. They claimed they didn't have a Yorkie even though our neighbor took her there. On Tuesday, I went to the Collin County Animal Shelter and they told me they did not have her. Finally a volunteer said she remembered our dog and that it had already been given up for adoption, even though Lola did have tags, but they had our former address and phone number on them. They would not give us the information of the people who adopted her.
They told us inhumanely that we could adopt another one. Even though I explained to them that my younger son has been crying, missing her, because we raised her since she was a puppy. No one has helped me, not even the court and we are suffering a lot because we know someone has her and they won't give her back.
Someone from the police department commented that you guys could help me! I'm desperate and feel it's not fair that they allowed Lola to be adopted, especially during the holidays when so many people travel.
I hope you can help me pursue my case to find the person that has my dog. I hope the people who adopted our dog might read this and understand and be willing to contact me.
