    This psychotic nutcase shouldn’t be allowed out of jail,and NEVER ALLOWED to have ANYMORE ANIMAKS,EVER!!!Put her ugly face on posters in all veterinary offices,shelters,etc.!!!She’s only going to keep the other 6dogs in miserable, life threatening situations! BAN HER !JAIL HER!FINE HER!!!Let her know she’ll never be able to do this to another animal again,WTF,is wrong with the ones who let her keep the 6 poor dogs?Are they nuts too???

  2. Why go to all this trouble and let her keep animals? She should be BANNED from ever owning another animal as long as she reathes. Men need to step aside on this issue and put the women in charge. That way it WOULD happen.

    They let her keep dogs? Unbelievable!

  4. Do you think she will treat the 4 animals left in her care humanly?

      Sadly, the remaining four (outside) and two (inside) will most likely continue with the same miserable life. Volunteers have made a huge effort to clean up the place and make the kennels more livable but it will take constant vigilance and that she does not do. The property is a feces drenched garbage dump and just recently did they even make them start bagging it up. Rats everywhere. At no time when the volunteers were there working their hearts out in 95 degree heat did this woman ever lift a finger to do anything. Without volunteers there to continue the cleaning and care, I doubt very much that it gets done. She gets to keep 4 outside dogs, one of which is a 16 y/o Weim. who is mostly blind, deaf, Dry Eye Syndrome, and HW+. He has lived his whole miserable life out in the heat and cold and the judge cannot make her give the dog up even though there is a hospice rescue ready to take him. She should not be able to keep a single animal. She wailed about having to go to jail for 60 days but she doomed all these animals to a living hell every day of their life.

        If she’s in jail, who will take care of the dogs she is (wrongfully) allowed to keep? The should all be removed from her care and she should be made to pay the $4000 regardless of the outcome of the animals.

      • Why can’t she be made to give all of them up, including the 16 y/o Weim?
