My brother-in-law was involved in the two car accident on Perryville and Route Road yesterday. When he got into the accident he had his dog Marcy with him she fled from the scene and we are worried about her. She is a pitbull which makes it the scariest because somebody will probably take her to fight her or turn her into the shelter which we have already contacted. She is a very sweet dog but she may be a little skittish. Could you please post something on your page to help us find her? Below is what I have been posting anywhere I can on Facebook. The owners are Will and Amanda kempke And Amanda’s phone number is attached in the comments.
