Back to what I posted for originally though ... The animals need to be taken care of because obviously they weren't being taken care of properly ... At least there are people out there who are willing to speak for animals who cant. May god look over this case against Vicki and hopefully the corrective actions will be taken on this case.

Seen pics of your place on Lincoln County GIS...don't think I'd want to live there, much less my dog. It's not your families fault this happened. Don't know why you feel you have to point fingers, you have no body to blame but yourself. DSS don't just pull kids for the heck of it, they usually have a reason. You have no body to blame but yourself for your son's situation (God help him). If you had be the responsible parent, you wouldn't have let it get this far and let your kids think this kind of life was ok. Truth hurts sometimes, but sometimes it takes the truth to get a reality slap on what's going on.
Walk Outside, take a look, if God showed up now, would you have been proud for him to see "your work", to eat at your table? If breeding was your only income there is NO WAY in Gods Green Earth you could afford upkeep for that many animals. My family makes a pretty good living and with the 15 animals we have (dogs, cats, horses and goats) it cost a pretty penny for vet and feed. NOT to mention if they were rescues and needed more it would cost more.
Really... look around and think. You've told yourself so many lies you're starting to believe them.
RESCUES DO NOT BREED!!!!!!!!!!

I don't know how you can hide behind GOD on this one, You and you alone created this mess Don't go blaming your step-Daughter for telling the truth about you. I have been knowing for a lot of years what those two girls went through living with you and their so called FATHER. May the good lord keep your other kids away from you and never let them back with the likes of you.I can't believe that you call yourself a rescuer, You are nothing but a greedy hoarder.Rescues Do Not Breed They Spay and Neuter.These poor animals never had a chance with you and I thank God that you were finally busted and these poor animals now have a Chance to become someones pet that will take the proper care of them and love them like God intended for them. YOU should be totally ashamed of yourself, please put the blame where it is due and that would be you,Vicki you are a poor excuse for a human being in my book and why are you hiding showing that you are in Florida when in truth you are in Denver NC. Please quit with blaming Amy Selby and their mom they didn't have anything to do with the MESS that you created. They are great people and you should be ashamed of yourself for even putting anything on this board about them you should keep that part private. Like myself I'm sure that they are others reading this and know the true story on how you treated these girls. I pray the good Lord takes pity on you and doesn't strike you down.

i think you are RIDICLOUS. like seriously if you were an "anmial rescue" please explain why your anmials water bowls were filled with green algi and mud?? and why they are so skinney and mal nurished?? and i quote"Bringing wet animals from outside onto my new Hardwood floor, water ruins this kind of flooring!" you ovously dont care about your home too much when you have 30-35 dogs inside a small doubble wide and 45 birds just flying aroud in your home, dog and bird crap everywhere and the smell was enough to make you gag. the people who came and took these anmials away from you did the best thing ever for those poor anmials. thes anmials have been mistreated for years and its about time the true "rescures" steped in. and as for your kids i hope you never get them back they deserve better than to live in a "home" filled with birds ,rats, dogs,cats running all over the place. none of your kids have been to school they were "home schooled" and they deserve to have a true education and put you and your mess in their past and never look back. you truly are a shame and a sore to our society. and should be behind bars.

I've been here since 1993 and this is the first time someone in the pooring rain saw this place un-imaculate.I have the Animal Controll Records to proove it .ask Mrs Cook what she saw I told people my place was imaculate at an early a,m, inspection last Dec. Olin erickson from lincoln times could tell you the same. He saw my place on a Good Day and He saw the worst day of my career because I invited him onto my property. I have hever had any thing to hide.
No animals or humans should be exposed to this type of abuse and cruelty. Vicki, if you truly believed GOD intended for you to be a rescue, you WOULD have ashed for help and not posted no tresspassing signs to hide the conditions of these animals. You would have instead invited anyone in to help with the feeding and rehabilitation of these animals. As for your nosey neighbors I commend them all for staying with this situation until help arrived. It has taken county and state officials and MANY volenteers days of feeding and bathing and essasing the health of these almost 400 animals, you Vicki and your son, since your husband is on disability, HA, to properly take on this task. I pray to GOD that NO judge would condem this animals and children to such a life under your supposed care. Your idea of care falls under the heading of neglect. Please DO NOT add to injury your husbands children anymore. This only makes you look more heartless. Let them all off the hook or chain which ever fits. Your responsible for your own sins and GOD found the right people to help. Have a heart and let them go. God Bless Heart Broken

Shelbie, to you and your sister GOD Bless. Vicki is her own worst enemy. God loves you both and he knows the truth. It is not enough to profess to be a child of God. God knows. He knows the pain and suffering you both indured. He loves you. Pray for Vicki, that she recieves the help she needs. Forgiveness is what God would ask you to do to set your hearts free. We don't have to like Vicki, but, forgiveness is mine sayeth the Lord and you won't be able to get past this until you understand Vicki needs Gods help and forgiveness. Big hugs to you and your family. Leave Vicki to God. My heart is with you. God Bless Heart Broken

Vicki Rauch, please do not include me in your fiasco. I am over all of this with you and Mike. My girls are upset. I am upset. But I choose to not be a part of all this. You can't be serious about missing all of us. You made me laugh. The last time my girls attempted to talk to their dad alone, you wouldn't shut up. For 45 minutes you and Mike bashed me without knowing I could hear it all. Then I spoke up and you all didn't have anything to say and we left. I LEFT. I don't like you and I don't like what you do to people and animals. You people victimized my family, myself, Tim, Amy, Shelbie, and Ryan. Now stop it. My daughter wants Mike to sign his paternity rights over, she has a real dad and it's not Mike. The day she turns 18 it will be done and you know why. Because I don't think you people are worth me spending more thousands of dollars for what it's worth. Good bye, good luck, and god bless the animals.
Jill, Shelbie, Amy and family, She doesn't get it. You do. Pray for her chilren and any animals she may have under her care in the future. Thank God for giving you the care for your children. You mayhave had to pay for it with money you didn't have, but , you knowing thier destiny if you couldn't save them risk it all. You are to be commened as a mother and caretaker, something Vicki will never know. Evident in how she cares for her own children and all the animals. God Bless, Big Hugs Heart Broken

I have been driving down petite lane for many years to visit friends and family so I know all about mrs. vicki.
There were way too many times to count when I would be driving down the road and before I even got out of my car I would have to hold my breath to keep from gagging as I would go into the house. And don't even get me started on the days when I would have liked to go have a cup of coffee outside but decided against it because of the overwhelming noise that echoed around the entire neighborhood coming from the hundreds of dogs.
There were cages on top of cages with 3-5 dogs in each one. Horses in a tiny corner of the property with no grass or anything...no room to run. I don't think I could describe properly how disgusting it actually was even if I said the worst things I could think of.
It has been like this for way too many years and I could not have been more excited to hear that it was finally being taken care of.
I feel so sorry for all the animals (17 different species) that had to live in that mess for so long. I feel even more sorry for the ones that had to die in it. I'm grateful that the county finally got involved in this matter and were able to save the ones that were still alive. I just want to say thank you to the county and all the volunteers that have reached out.

Vicki- I think you should look at this as a blessing from God and take the new message of DON'T get anymore animals to "rescue" and try to take care of yourself and your kids. Maybe now you can start cleaning up your yard and your act. You and your family will be in my prayers.

My heart hurts for these poor animals but I am totally amazed at the fact nobody is screaming about these poor children. Is it true the 10 year old CAN NOT READ? Is it true the 3 year old CAN NOT TALK?? IS IT TRUE SHE IS SUPPOSEDLY HOME SCHOOLING? By the looks of things she doesn't have enough sense to school a 3 year old. Where do these children play? The pictures show NO yard at all. The pictures of the house show NO room for a child. She lumps her children into the same category as her animals???? "all her babies" - WHAT KIND OF MOTHER IS THIS? If she and her husband decide to live in such a nasty mess hole, WHY DOESN'T SHE GIVE HER CHILDREN A CHANCE AT LIFE AND GIVE THEM TO SOMEONE THAT WILL TAKE THE TIME TO LOVE AND EDUCATE THEM!
It seems apparent by the other post here that she has already tried to ruin the lives of two little girls. Thank God their REAL mother found them and kept them away from such filth.
To Shelbie and Amy - say what you need to say and start running past this. You don't have to say you are her step daughter and your "bio" father. Hold fast to your real mother and dad and don't let these people upset you or give them another thought, THEY ARE NOT WORTH IT.
This Vicki keeps preaching about God giving her this job. I do believe if God gave you this job, he would have given you the tools by which to do it correctly. Do you really believe you are fooling anyone by saying God told you to do this or that you are helping the county because of over crowding?? The majority of people are not as dumb as you are - WE ARE NOT FALLING FOR THAT!
PLAIN AND SIMPLE - THIS IS A PUPPY MILL!!!! YOU BREED AND SELL DOGS BY YOUR OWN ADMISSION! YOU CAN'T BE A BREEDER ONE DAY AND A RESCUE THE NEXT!

Oh I so agree with you. I hope and Pray she never gets these CHILDREN back. She is not fit to raise them, A 10 year old that can't read and a 3 year old tht can't talk is discusting. And as for Selbie an Amy Thank God their MOM got them out of a horrible situation living with Vicki was a nightmare for these girls. They are 2 great girls and I want to personally Thank Jill for not giving up until her girls were safe.

She keeps claiming that all the animals are well cared for. Simple to prove: show us all the receipts for purchases of food and supplies.

Also I note she keeps saying some of the animals belonged to her son who was opening a pet shop. Got news for you and your son: a pet shop requires licensing by the state with strict recordkeeping and strict animal care provisions.

I think it is time for rescues to be strictly controlled. We are seeing way too many situations where this is happening. It isn't fair to the animals and it isn't fair to the counties that have to pick up the costs of cleaning up messes like this.

Rescues need to be licensed, approved and inspected.

If she wasn't registered as a non-profit rescue then any adoption fees she took in should have been reported as business income. You cannot be "somewhere in between". Either you are a non-profit or you are a business. Which was it Vicki? I don't see you registered as a non-profit with the NC Secretary of State so it must have been a business.

I do rescue so I can tell you people will try and dump any animals on anyone they can, heck they will dump them on the side of the road! Saying that I understand how overwhelmed you can become with animals and fast. Rescuers have to set limits!! Responsible rescues only take what they can care for and what they can handle.

Listening to Vicki talk on here is like watching the Jerry Springer show. The finger pointing and accusations really shed some light on the kind of people are involved. Jerry?? Where are you ?? Your missing some good drama here.

I can barely afford to provide vet care and all the needs for my one large dog. ANY respectable rescue would never bring dogs into the world when they cant adopt the ones they have. You know the saying for every dog you breed one dog at the pound dies. Think of all the dogs that died due to her breeding practices. She put her needs in front of the animals in that case.

Hoarding is a mental illness and I feel sorry for Vicki. I hope they force her to seek the medical attention I think she needs.

I have been volunteering with these animals every day now for 7 days. I can't tell you how heart breaking it is to see these innocent helpless eyes looking up as I go by running from errand to errand. I really want to stop, kneal down, open that door pick up that puppy, pet it and let it know, it will be okay, life is better than this, just wait little one, some day you will have a wonderful home of your own. Unfortunately, there is too much work to be done.

The sad thing is here is that, she does not think there is anything wrong with this situation, the kids, the animals, etc. So no matter what anybody says or advice they try to give, she wants to continuously defend this. There is no remorse, no apologies, which means there is obviously no real love loss with the kids or animals. The only loss in her mind is money (who is going to get the animals, how much will they sell them for and I deserve a cut of the money made). And I only say that because of conversations that have been had by her and other people. Her mind always seems to go to the money when you discuss the animals with her. Even after the animals were taken away because financially she could not care for them, automatically "her livelihood is now gone" "thatÂ’s her only source of income". It is a bunch of nonsense and lies. There has been other income. Like she stated previously to her step daughter, Amy's dada was injured working. The lies are all catching up now and the truth is out. As horrible as it sounds, I hope the children don't go back home and they get to grow up with a normal life now with people who will love and care for them the way God intended. And if by some strange reason she does not do any time for this, her day will come. It will be the final judgment and God will ask what did you do with the responsibilities I gave you and she will say I lost it all because of greed and selfishness..... God have mercy on her soul.
