Amazing Tails LLC, INC. Service Dog Agency Takes money and fails to provide service dog Oxford PA Nationwide
Amazing Tails is a service dog training center located in Oxford PA. What would have been my third service dog (second from Amazing Tails) would have been placed with me sometime in late June or early July. Back in November of 2013 I received 2 phone calls.
The first phone call I received was from the trainer of my dog, Siobhan Cameron. In this phone call I was informed by Ms Cameron that the owner of Amazing Tails, Joanie Bussard could not pay the salary due Ms Cameron because of over ten thousand dollars in outstand debt.
Later that same week I received a simlar call from Joanie Bussard which simply reinforced the training centers outstanding debt.
While all of this is going on I was under contract with Amazing Tails. Under the terms of this contract I agreed to pay a total cost of $7000.00 and this fee is not due until the training of the dog is complete. As an act of good faith I have been making payments via paypal for the past year and a half.
On Thursday April 24, 2014 I received a call from Ms. Cameron stating that the agency was having a problem meeting obligations to its creditors and that a young female client with Agoriphobia had raised more money then I had in less time.
On April 25, 2014 I contacted Ms. Bussard to inform her that it was highly unprofessional to compare the funding efforts of clients based on his or her disability. It was also stated that I was not obligated to pay any fees or engage in fundraising until the training of my dog was complete.
I became very concerned and made a written request for the last three yars of tax returns for this registerd 501(c)3 not for profit agency, As I am entiltied to this information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
The agency responded by terminating my contract and returning a small portion of the funds that they had received both in direct payment and charity donations.
I am currently in the process of seeking legal representation along with media coverage for this issue.
