OTF is honored to recognize the valiant service of the Arlington, TX Police Department in their incredible response to an August 10, 2020 stolen vehicle report. The vehicle was stolen along with Charlotte, a 10-year-old emotional support and service dog with OTF. Charlotte's owner, Taija Horne, is a social worker with the organization.
Arlington PD combed the streets, posted announcements about the missing emotional support animal on its Facebook page, and utilized location tracking technology to quickly find the stolen vehicle and reunite Taija and Charlotte.
Taija Horne described the emotional reunion, "I was crying, screaming, thanking God and telling the police I loved them. I am so very thankful for their dedication in finding Charlotte."
OTF CEO Jacob Schick commented, "This is community-building at its best and really exemplifies full-circle why OTF exists and why we do what we do. These officers respond daily to crisis calls and face life threatening dangerous situations."
One Tribe Foundation Services include one-on-one traditional clinical counseling with a trauma-informed and culturally competent licensed clinicians, peer support groups, and resource navigation. Appointments and requests for information can be made online at www.22kill.com, phone 682-990-6242, or email: email@example.com.
