    JUSTICE FOR KODA AND MYA: Almost a year after Koda and Mya came into RSPCA South Australia’s care, they’re finally seeing justice.

    Koda weighed just 13.8kg and Mya a mere 7.2kg when they came into our care. A man and a woman were charged under the Animal Welfare Act 1985 for failing to provide appropriate and adequate food for the dogs. As the wheels of justice were turning, the two dogs were receiving plenty of TLC and rehabilitation at our Lonsdale shelter.

    A man was sentenced in Christies Beach Magistrates Court yesterday after pleading guilty to two charges relating to Koda and Mya’s ill-treatment. He was sentenced to three weeks in jail however this term was wholly suspended as the defendant agreed to enter into an 18 month good behaviour bond.

    "The extended period of neglect makes it a very serious offence. This is serious and will be treated as such,” said Magistrate Fahey.

    “I do not know how you could not have noticed the dogs … it would have been very distressing for them and they had no way of helping themselves.”

    The defendant was also banned from owning an animal for two years. His co-accused has had her hearing adjourned until late February.

    RSPCA South Australia executive manager of animal operations Kerriann Campbell remembers when both Koda and Mya arrived at Lonsdale.

    “Initially, they came to us separately. Mya was picked up as a stray. To start with, we didn’t know her and Koda were a bonded pair,” she said.

    “But once they were both in our care, they started to communicate with each other across the shelter. Our staff recognised what they were doing.

    “When we reunited them, they were just so happy. I’ve never seen companionship like that in a pair of dogs. It was almost human the way they behaved.”

    Once they were together again, Koda and Mya would spend their days playing in the paddocks and yards as they recovered at the Lonsdale shelter.

    “It took us more than four months of work and rehabilitation to get them to a healthy weight,” Ms Campbell said.

    “They were put through a number of nutrition, exercise and training regimes. Keeping them mentally stimulated was important too.”

    Despite many offers to adopt them individually, our staff didn’t think that would be in Koda and Mya’s best interest.

    The wonderful Clifford family adopted the pair in July last year and have given them the truly loving family they deserved. We’re thrilled we were able to meet the beautiful dogs, secure justice for them, and see them loved every day with their beautiful new family.
