  • Thank God I got my god damn cats outta there before that happened!! Anyway, all the dogs and cats were fed, watered, and cared for every day!! The neighbors were just pricks that didn’t like the barking spooking the livestock! No animals were mistreated!! Our cats were safe there, too! She even said to me and my mother, that if they take the dogs she’d shoot herself! She cared for the homeless’ dogs, military family’s dogs, too! She was a rescue, not a

  • Really people it doesn’t matter if she is a hoarder or not. She was taking good care of those dogs that could have been running lose on the streets fending for themselves being abused or worse hit by cars. God bless her for doing the best she could for the dogs. At least she cared enough to take them all in.

  • Fox news, channel 13 also did a story on this. Animal Control said that the dogs and cats were being fed and watered properly. And that they were basically in good shape. The problem lies with the housing. Not enough money or staff to properly cage these animals. This lady just needed more help taking care of them. I don’t believe in any way that she meant any harm to come to these animals, but it’s probably a good thing that they are being taken care of somewhere else now. So sad, because people are trying to do good things, but don’t always have the resources or funding to do them.

  • I have personally volunteered out there many times and if you look up her website you will see her dogs (as mentioned) were all fat,healthy and happy.Everyday each dog was let out to run and play and was fed two bowls of food with 2 cookies on top,their water buckets were taken out and wiped clean each day and filled with fresh water and poop removed from kennel.They were taken to the vet when needed,they were all on flea meds and vaccinated.She took them to adoption events….You would see a chair in random kennels and that’s where she would sit and visit.Shes not a hoarder,she just got in over her head.All those dogs out there (except 2) are very friendly and highly adoptable.You can ask her about each and every one and she will tell ya all about them.In her mind she was helping homeless people,homeless dogs and military fosters.She wanted to help anyone in need.She dedicated her life to those dogs,she loves them all.None of those dogs are FIGHTING METERIAL.

  • Can you imagine what it would cost to care for that many dogs?? After picking up nearly 100 animals on Kildeer where are all those animals going to be housed. How sad.

  • The country posted a video of a few. Mostly mixed breeds that look to be in decent shape, so not a hoarder. Classic dog fighting material.
