Thank you so much for signing our petition and reading our story. We greatly appreciate it. We are approaching our pre trial conference on the criminal matters. My family will go into court and speak the truth just the same as we have for nearly 7 months. We want our pets home, we want our shelter back open, we want to continue helping cats and cat families. We are a family that believes in helping people and unfortunately that is what got us here, but I am a caring person, and I...

Thank you so much for signing our petition and reading our story. We greatly appreciate it. We are approaching our pre trial conference on the criminal matters. My family will go into court and speak the truth just the same as we have for nearly 7 months. We want our pets home, we want our shelter back open, we want to continue helping cats and cat families. We are a family that believes in helping people and unfortunately that is what got us here, but I am a caring person, and I instill that into my kids. We truly appreciate the kind comments and prayers, prayers can sometimes move mountains, and that is what we need right now. I worry about my kids everyday, they would do so much better if they had their pets to cry with. We did get a new baby because aco left one cat behind, she is distraught, they have her brother, these cats are 8 years old. Tinkerbelle still yells but not as bad as she used to. She has a hard time if we leave the house, she has a hard time if no one is talking, she starts yelling, we have to tell her we are here and she calms down. This is so sad to see, so we got her a little baby, Tink is doing alot better, but you can see the hurt in her by her actions, she is not my cat, she is my husbands but she won't leave my side. So sad, I feel for her. Thank you from each of us.

Samantha, I think what our like-minds here should do,
is "invade" that repressive town, in a large
rebellious protest march, demanding all the
officials involved to step down and face justice in a court of law
on charges of violating your civil and constitutional rights,
corruption by abuse of office for their own political purposes,
intimidation, animal cruelty, false prosecution and perjury,
conspiracy to commit acts of oppression, and high treason!

#2 sounds like a constitutional issue. Fourth Amendment (Amendment IV) to the United States Constitution. I would definitely have that before a federal court.

I will most likely take this case to federal court, I am sick of it, too many cats have died for no reason.

have you thought of contacting your local television station? more if they become involved you might get more action, especially if the policians in your community are called out on the carpet to intervene...worth a try if you haven't already!

I have many times thought about having a press conference because of my proof I can't tell it all like it needs to be told. So all I can do right now is bite my tongue and speak here of what I can. I don't want questions asked that I so want to give answers to but I have to save it for the hearing against them. I have so much information that will I believe, make people angry. Only 1 news channel found out about the truth and ran that without my knowledge, I was glad they did. Because,...

I have many times thought about having a press conference because of my proof I can't tell it all like it needs to be told. So all I can do right now is bite my tongue and speak here of what I can. I don't want questions asked that I so want to give answers to but I have to save it for the hearing against them. I have so much information that will I believe, make people angry. Only 1 news channel found out about the truth and ran that without my knowledge, I was glad they did. Because, as I have said, the story the aco told was exaggerated and he made a mountain out of a mole hill. Yes, my house was a mess, again, something I have never denied, but the condition he stated was not so, the house became worse because we were staked out for 5 hours and I could not tend to my daily chores because of such, but he never told anyone that. It has never been stated that when they showed up I was actually doing my chores cleaning litter boxes, etc. I have pix of my house with many cats in it clean and I have 2 cats now and my house is clean, we just had a bad 10 days due to everything that happened. I find it hard to believe that we are the only people that have had a bad time from several things coming up at once pretty much. I mean shoot there are commercials of moms getting sick and their house goes to pot, but because I got sick and we got behind on chores, now I am facing these charges. It's just retaliation, nothing more nothing less, but it is wrong. Thank you for your support, my kids deserve it and so do our furbabies. :(

I only mentioned it because here in Hartford, CT we have a couple tv stations that do viewer advocacy, ie: 3 on your side....it's really quite amazing what "the man" will accomplish when it's all over TV that they're not doing the right thing!

Good Luck, I'll be thinking of you and your kids!

Thank you. Honestly I want to so bad, but until I have all their so called evidence in my hand I can't tell it all as I feel that he will change his evidence to cover his lies. Thank you.

I have discussed this with my attorney and he said do not go to press until later, we do not want all of our documentation out there and do not speak of the good stuff to prove the case.....

Similar happened to me. Through prayer and high praises, I was led to The Lexus Group; and they were able to work to get Lady Marie Bear Friend one of our three companion missionary service dogs freed from death row and into the hands of a "rescue mommy" for a season until our beloved fur baby is back home! Hallelujah! Just google and ask for help!

Hi Glenna,
I know of your story. Lexus has talked to me and want me to send my info but can only help with the dogs, not the cats or chickens :( But hopefully with someone else on board these crooked politicians will understand, we have had enough! I vow to make this stop all across America, I will continue to support each and everyone that supports me and my family. We are a village of animal lovers and it is going to take just that to protect all animals and get laws changed. Sending prayers to Lady Bear and you also. Much love.

To the people who hate animals. I have a wonderful idea for you. Give generous donations monthly for the spay and nutering of anmials so we can eliminate population of so many of these pets you don't approve of, even though thier not yours. And stop supporting the kill shelters who take pets that already have nice loving owners, because all they do is take thousands of tax$$ and say OH! this is how much it costs to get rid of them.. News flash It Doesn't. So don't forget your monthly...

These so-called animal control officials should be fired.
and prosecuted and convicted to the fullest extent of the law on charges.
of official misconduct, perjury, and animal abuse!

And not only these crooked animal control officials
who should have their piddly @$$es tossed in the pokey,
but also the politicians pandering to the special interest lobbyists
trying score points on this travesty and miscarriage of justice!!!
These bureaucratic birdbrains are the ones who should
be locked up and the key thrown away!!!

I'm confused. Are you saying 21 of your cats were emaciated, and 9 others ranged from thin to very thin?

Samantha Lee

They are saying that. I had cats weighing 10-12, some smaller but no cat was emaciated. You can see the pix of some of the cats, some of the pix are the aco's own "evidence" to prove to the courts that my cats were between emaciated and underweight.
