Who is this person? I live in Flat Rock and more than a certain number of dogs per household is not allowed. How does someone get and retain this many animals without the Town of Flat Rock getting involved and doing something about it prior to it's becoming such a problem?

That's way too many pets for one farm.

That is no farm. It is a house that was willed to All Creatures. Kappler still lives in it. Very small piece of property and very small house.

awwww hell, can't you take a joke?

Anyhow, why would the paper keep her name a secret? AC-T is so pitiful. At least these animals weren't put down. Perhaps she was still trying to find homes for them....but that is still an awful lot of pets for such a small farm.

She is a hoarder and does little to try to find homes for the animals. There were over 800 animals at All Creatures when the state became involved. Yet just a few weeks later there were only 158 with less that a dozen adoption records provided to them. These were some of the animals moved from there. It is said She has many others at many sites in the area, living in horrible conditions. The house is on a roadside that is just a few feet from a main highway. Neighbors state these animals were all inside the house(1,1050 square feet).

born here, Are you advocating criminal acts? Killing animals with anti-freeze is a crime so we know the content of your character. In fact, it is a felony.

Kappler has now sentenced 44 animals currently at the Henderson County Shelter to death. Was advised that they must put down animals currently there that could be adopted to make room for the 44 seized from Kappler. I don't blame her for evading the cameras from the news. If I were her, I would hide to. I hope they sentence her and the Dunns to jail. Mary is some friend. She sat silently yesterday across the road and watched while they took the animals away. Never once offering her "friend" a helping hand. Everyone needs friends like that. Way to go Kim and Mary, you have been successful in killing even more animals.

Someone ones need to feed you some antifreeze, not enought to kill you, just enough so it will burn your throat and then you can feel their pain.

It is urgent that anyone that can properly care for an animal visit the Henderson County Shelter and adopt today if possible. They have already euthanized some animals to make room for Kapplers. They will begin euthanizing again today. They have no choice as there is now no room. There is a sheep dog that needs to go now and it is so beautiful and good natured as well as several others. PLEASE!!!!! call everyone and ask them to help adopt those animals immediately. It is such a shame that really adoptable animals already there had to be destroyed to make room for the others.
