Read the letter in the attached photo...

My dog was illegally taken from me and I have been fighting for years to get him back from the rescue that illegally stole him with assistance from the Animal Shelter in Killeen AND managed to get his microchip ILLEGALLY changed...

You think your pets are safe with a home again chip implanted in them??? They are NOT!!! Home Again claims it is not an owner identification service and they will change a chip and take the word of a rescue or shelter over that of an owner... This is a FACT... They did it with my dog Apollo pictured here...

He was never seized but he was illegally taken... The shelter tried to extort money out of me for his return and they illegally sent him and my other dogs to rescues when I did not have the $2400 to get them out... Mind you they did this without authority from a judge! When they gave my dog away to HOTLR I begged them to return him and they threatened to do a smear campaign on me and refused... They also provided falsified documentation to Home Again stating he was seized when he was not... Documentation they obtained from Stacie Sherva who has since been FIRED.... [continued below]....


I need my dog... I love him... I need him home with me... So... What have you? Someone in that city KNOWS who has my dog. $5000 cash reward. Please bring Apollo home!

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AT: http://www.petition2congress.com/4953



Margaret Huston,

May I please see an updated photograph of my dog? I have no idea if he is even ok. No idea how he looks now. He was my very first dog. He carries my soul with him. He was the first dog I ever loved. I cry every night in hopes he will one day be returned to me. I hurt so badly at what happened and none of you will ever believe anything I say, but I am wanting him back. I will not move forward and cannot move forward as he is the beat to my heart that has never gone away. You probably don't care... most people don't. Have a heart and send me a photograph. He is still my dog. Legally. He's my dogchild so please... do the right thing. There ARE 2 sides to every story... you never allowed me to express mine... nor did you even care. Bring my Apollo HOME. That's my only wish.

the above person does not work with HOTLR


Deborah Jean Peck of Lakeside, CA wrote the above statement and this is what I can tell you...

1. she doesn't know HOTLR and doesn't work with them so her rebuttel SHOULD be removed as she's not a part of their org...

2. her statements are WRONG!!! When we took Pudding and Taco over there, we did not know Pudding had people issues... she was pulled from the shelter with Taco and we knew that she had issues with small dogs and him as well of which I informed them of and they were perfectly ok with proceeding with a meet and greet... I explained to them the cost of our adoption fees and stated that we had HOPED they could remain together but that more than likely I would separate them unless it was an experienced bully breed owner... 

Deborah told me her dad breeds pits... she also asked if her boys could be allowed to hang out with them while she went somewhere with her friend and to pick up the fund for their adoption fee for 2 fully vetted, micro-chipped and fixed dogs... again we had seen no issues with Taco or Pudding towards people...

Due to Deborah's runaround bs, I pulled the dogs out the house and chose not to follow through with the adoption after they kept giving excuses on fees etc... they also were acting weird and had left kids ALONE while they went out... found out from their neighbors they were running dope and so I immediately halted ANY further adoption proceedings with them...

Found out they adopted another dog and flipped him to CL shortly after because their landlord said no dogs... so either way it goes, she's a lying pos. 

3. As soon as Pudding started hurting people, she was scheduled to be euthanized at the Humane Society because we do not adopt out people aggressive dogs.  She also had already been in a shelter FOR aggression towards animals so that was her last strike for the ACO's so to speak.

4. I was asked to do a plea agreement in regards to my Texas case and took it because I HAVE NO MORE MONEY TO FIGHT IT ANYMORE... I didn't want to do a plea bargain AT ALL... and the facts to my case are explained in my petition... yes I was ACCUSED by someone for cruelty... key word is ACCUSED... I WAS NEVER CONVICTED.  

5. The person who ACCUSED me, illegally took and dispersed of my animals oh and KILLED My rescue animals was investigated... I was one of the people who reported her for investigation... finally she was fired... yes I did partake in a portion of this process... and thank GOD someone finally took action.

6. I have never extorted money from my fosters... I had a foster family who is a neighbor to this crazy Deborah chick who was supposed to be FOSTERING a dog... mind you I have a contract, and texts, voicemails, you name it... PROOF that she was a foster... who GAVE THE DOG AWAY... SO... anyone that knows how fostering works KNOWS this is not the right way to do things... she was told to return the dog MANY times and refused.  Got that in writing also... the fosters were considering adopting Izzy and YES THERE IS AN ADOPTION FEE NO THAT IS NOT EXTORTION DUMBA**!

7. JUST BECAUSE I MAY HAVE LOST A PLACE TO STAY DOESN'T MEAN MY DOGS DON'T HAVE ONE!!! I fortunately have enough friends in rescue to assist me with my animals if need be.  So your living in the car statement with 10 dogs is FALSE!!! sorry hun, but you really need to learn more about rescue before opening your mouth... if I am scheduled to have an adoption event, or am doing home checks for more than one dog or transports from a shelter, yes I may have several dogs in a vehicle.  It is NOT illegal and all of my rescues are HEALTHY!!! Veterinary approved certs on them ALL.

Please Beware! Ashley Nicole Miller is a fraud! Go to You Tube, actual case file, pictures of dead animals laying next to live one's, Apollo, Cowboy, Koda, Phantom, s****.>

She's even lying about her military service, she was kicked out! But begs & scams veterans for money on her websites. She extorts $ from "fosters" microchips all dogs to herself so she can take them, steal them back, call the Police, say the dogs are missing/stolen then SELL THEM AGAIN! She'll place a killer dog in your home w/kids!!! She tried to force us to last month, that same dog "Pudding" Ashley killed for being animal & HUMAN AGGRESSIVE. She has no remorse for trying to harm us, has even came to our home  on Valentines Day. She terrorized my boys, screaming, did property damage @ my neighbors house. Look up my complaint against Ashley Nicole Miller.

Google & You Tube her!! Go on Facebook. People everywhere are protesting & signing Petition To Stop Ashley! You Tube Petition. All factual documents even Plea agreement is there in video. Website under Megan Edwards on Facebook, she started Sn Diego County Stop Ashley Nicole Miller! The out pour of victim's is unbelievable! Do not let her stalk, threaten, harass, intimidate you or your family. Call 911!! If you don't help stop her there WILL be more dead/abused animals & our community will have a predator in it! Stay off Craigs list, that's how she finds unsuspecting victims. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE HER, SHE HAS NO CONSCIOUS! Get Police involved, she's currently on Probation from plea agreement in Texas Animal Cruelty Case.

Anything on Facebook, You tube that says ANM is also info or websites against her, names been abbreviated because she threatens everyone. Blames all her fosters for everything, never pays $ to any fosters, steals the dog donations, SHE'S LIVING IN HER CAR & been homeless 4 months w/ 10+ dogs trapped in her black Saturn. Oh on "fundrazor" website she's begging for $$ for a new car! Why? So she can beat/steal/transport more screwed up abused animals!, She's so sick & twisted I no longer wish to post anymore. It makes us all physically I'll and it's very disturbing. For a woman to be sadistic, manipulating, with no fear or remorse for any of us victims is disturbing. Can't imagine what kind of family this monster came from or if they're victims of her also.
