Everyone involved in dog rescue knows of Cynthia....Kim Maggio has healthy dogs and cats spends more money on vet care and has saved and placed thousands of unwanted dogs and cats. She normally kept 10-12 small dogs...chihuahuas and chihuahua mixes and maybe 10 cats. Her volunteers stopped helping clean when gas prices skyrocketed thus making a trip to Frazier Park too expensive for her regular crew. She has been trying to place all her animals and move as she has no residence to take her animals too. She was staying in her reposessed home until the last minute to try and rehome her animals.Kim's rescue was a lagitemate county regulated and supervised dog and cat rescue. Her paperwork kept routinely up to date and was inspected by Animal Control several times a year. I have volunteered, transported dogs and cats to adoption events, some in San Diego,donated equiptment such as dog and cat crates, food bowls and transported over 5,000 pounds of dog and cat food to her home....there has never been a shortage of dog and cat food, vet care,or water in the 5 years I have known her. I also groomed her little fluffy dogs so I know they were kept in excellent condition. I also groom for other Rescues so know lots of dog people from all over CA. NO WAY does Kim Maggio deserve ANY criminal action against her.Shame on You Animal Control!!

Shame on Animal control for not getting a hold of Kim Maggio sooner. I hope that Kern County puts her away for awhile.

Her history of animal neglect/ abuse is evident. She was run out of Los Angelos County.... she lied in court, attempting to gain Possession of seized animals during a case involving another animal abuser. A number of animal abusers/hoarders in Southern California are linked - intertwined.... and they all cry the same thing when they are caught.... it is never their fault, no one will help and the ever popular... someone is out to get them. Please.
There is a special place in Hell for people like these.
