We are happy to report that Daman Holmes has been in arrested in Las Vegas. We want to thank everyone that contacted Las Vegas Metro and the FBI, letting them know about this monster.
IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT THE CASE
BEATEN DOG UPDATE. The Misinformation Must STOP! We need to set the record straight about Athena, the dog being beaten in the horrific viral video we made public a few weeks ago while fighting to bring Daman Holmes to justice. There are news stories and petitions floating around with IRRESPONSIBLE MISINFORMATION that have us deeply concerned.
Here are some Facts you should know:
FACT: Nevada Voters For Animals is the only animal welfare group working with the family being threatened, aware of facts of the case, and leading the fight for justice.
FACT: The ONLY petitions we endorse that contain correct information & facts is the Change.org
petition and we support the Care2 (the Petition Site) petition. But, it was created before we were contacted and needed some correction but it got the point across and had nearly 140k signatures at last count .
FACT: Athena had a loving owner who was NOT aware she was being beaten by Holmes, a friend/roommate, until shown the video by FBI at which time Holmes was kicked out.
FACT: Athena is now with a local rescue because she was VOLUNTARILY surrendered by her loving owner and had NOT been in danger since the videos were filmed and Holmes was kicked out.
FACT: Daman Holmes was NOT the owner of Athena and she did NOT need to be rescued from Daman Holmes despite what a recent petition led people to believe.
FACT: We do not support and will not tolerate exploitation of Athena. She has been through enough! We have fought very hard FOR MONTHS to bring Daman Holmes to justice for beating Athena AND for terrorizing his ex and her family. We hope ANYONE involved with Athena doesn’t take advantage of the worldwide concern for her welfare and allows her to QUIETLY live her life at the rescue at which she was relinquished in Good Faith.
FACT: We do NOT support vigilante behavior. We do NOT support posting addresses or taking matters into their own hands. We must ensure & allow law enforcement to handle this case.
FACT: We are focused on the arrest of Daman Holmes.
