Please help if you can, find Koda a beloved emotional support animal (ESA) that went missing on Thursday and is still missing today.  My friend and founder of Rescue the Animals Paul Washburn reached out to me and asked if we could help get the word out.

Furthermore, Paul says that they are offering an additional $300 no questions asked reward for Koda's safe return.  Coda belongs to Taylor Lopez who has been hospitalized in Dallas being treated for kidney transplant failure.

Paul said "Upon hearing Taylor's pleas to the public for help in finding her beloved dog" Washburn wants to get the entire community together to search for Koda. Along with Rescue the Animals offering $300, a separate reward from the Lopez family is also being offered for an additional $1,000.

If you know of or have seen this adorable fur baby please reach out and contact  Rescue the Animals at (325) 698-7722, or email Rescue the Animals at contact@rescuetheanimals.org. Paul Washburn and the Lopez family both say there will be no questions asked For the safe return of Koda.

An emotional support animal (ESA) is a companion animal that provides emotional support and comfort to an individual who has a mental, physical, or emotional disability. Please know that emotional support animals are not the same as service animals, which are trained to perform specific tasks to assist individuals and alert others if there is a problem. Source: U.S. Service animals 

Additionally, I believe that the person that steps forward to return Koda will be labeled as a local hero.
