    This is something Carina whipped up. Kim won't be signing anything like that.

    Carina is off her rocker, trying to prevent someone from speaking about their problems? That definatly can't be legal!

    If it isn't a gag order signed by a judge, tough shit for Carina.
    However, if the Fishburns willingly sign something saying they won't speak about it in an open forum, it IS a legal and binding contract and they could end up seriously screwing themselves.

    My suggestion is now do what you have to do to disengage from this fight that you have given up on.

    It's ok to sign the gag order , because I will talk more 'Ish on your behalf about how crabbish Carinna & AFF is , they will be begging you to take back the podium.:D

    Thanks everyone! No worries cause we're not signing anything. Did you note that Carina?? Don't you just hate it when you can't control and manipulate everyone!!! And when you mentioned that I couldn't run the AFF, what really is the case is that I simply WOULD NOT run it the way you do.

    Hondo is now in the possession of Animals First Foundation (AFF). I relinquished my possession of Hondo because he legally belongs to AFF and because I know the foundation will manage his care and adoption in a manner that is in Hondo’s best interests.
    <o:p> </o:p>
    It was my understanding that Carina Borja set up the rescue of the dog that attacked my dog and nearly killed him earlier this year. I was mistaken – Perrin Kaplan and Robin Booth actually set up the rescue – Ms. Borja was never involved in the rescue of that particular dog. The incident was dreadful and stressful but none of the rescue coordinators were at fault.
    <o:p> </o:p>
    I was also mistaken in my understanding that Ms Borja had never met Hondo. She became acquainted with Hondo on an occasion when I was not present. Furthermore, Ms. Borja provided financial support for Hondo when she paid for Hondo’s transportation from Eastern Washington and when she offered food and supplies for Hondo when he was in my foster care.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Animals First Foundation and Carina Borja should not be faulted for their concern for Hondo’s welfare and for trying to make sure Hondo’s best interests are served. While I may have a personal disagreement with Ms. Borja, that disagreement is between her and me and in no way should affect AFF’s reputation or serve to cast any doubt on AFF’s stated goals and aspirations.<o:p></o:p>

    Respectfully, <o:p></o:p>

    Does AFF really know whats best for Hondo? If they did they wouldn't want to take him from the only home that he feels comfortable in. If they really think that they are thay bad then why allow him to go there to start off with. Any rescue that I have heard from does a pretty good background check AND A HOME VISIT of the potiental foster home before allowing them to foster any animal. Isnt there a way that they can persue it ( if they still want too) and leave Hondo where hes at. If they are willing to fight wether its good or bad to keep him then they must love and care for him. Why take that from an innocent dog that really doesn't understand it. all he will know is that the people he loves are gone and he is put somewhere else away from them. Its not fair to him! Its like hes being punished for something he didnt do. (JMO) Just dont let them foster from AFF again. Why all the names and bad posts? Aren't we all adults here? If AFF isnt willing to post than how can anyone be certian that they are right? In my personal experinces when one party doesn't speak up its because they normally have something to hide or knows their wrong. There are 2 sides to every story but when only one is speaking and the other refuses then there really is just one side then.

    I can't really answer that because I dont know, I just know that they relinquished him over to AFF under threat of legal action.

    I actually believe he has been adopted by a family. But I'm not positive on this.
