Please stop trying to defend these idiots. Three sides is Barb's daughter. She loves to abuse people and probably animals too. She thinks she's the queen bee just like her Mother and nothing ever going to change. Scummers who think their poop doesn't stink but we all know better. So, go hitch your azz to your daily booze and cocaine and stop trying to convince people you're all humane!

Yes I have looked at those photos. I see 2 dogs that are bad,....not 12! And I see them in small cages, whereas they had room to run before. These dogs were being treated by the Herkimer Vets and the humane society doesn't want to hear any of it. Perhaps someone should call WKTV and have their reporters do some "real investigative reporting" and find the truth from the Vet themselves instead of taking reports only from the humane society. Of course that won't happen because WKTV is worthless.
Then tell my why their nails were growing back into their paws if they were taken such good care of.

I would love to see you physically do something to Barb or Lonnie. Who are you anyway? Do you know the family?

Don't judge her lawyer by his looks. He is excellent and very smart when it comes to law.

Actually,....the humane society has only been showing pictures of 4 dogs,....not all 12, and only 4 dogs had mange. The humane society will do whatever it can to bring attention to themselves. Just look at how much money and donations they received over this story. This investigation will include the vets at Herkimer Veterinary Assoc and the truth will come out. Why is it that the Vet denies ever treating or seeing these dogs, however there are records, receipts, and prescriptions from this office to start treating these dogs weeks ago!?
You know what, Gary? Four dogs is too much. ONE dog in that condition is too much. A picture is worth a thousand words. Peddle your sh*t somewhere else.

Amanda, your comments are indicative of a real lack of maturity. The children (or grandchildren) of the dog owner are not the issue here. I know them all and have for years. Not on a personal basis - more on a "hi, how are you" basis. Tesla is a sweet girl who has had the same boyfriend for YEARS. You're being unnecessarily mean. And showing your crudeness. Believe me, if I were a friend I would have turned the owner in myself. But please refrain from comments about their personal life. That's not fair, and just because YOU say it doesn't make it fact. This is about the animals. I believe the owner should be named and CHARGED, because I believe those dogs suffered. End of my rant. Just try to grow up a little.

http://www.2ndchance.info/mange.htm - Here's a little info on mange in dogs. Can be easily spread from one dog to another unlike what Dr. Mondi said. This is a lot like lice in kids and we all know not every kid with lice is a scumbag who is neglected. Check out the news reports out of Syracuse (cnycentral) where those reporters actually get information, such as the Vet bill and showing all of the products this dog owner has been using to try to fix this.
Please answer this one question, Is it neglect if you bring your dog to the Vet for evaluation and treatment and buy the recommended products?? I believe it's neglect if you ignore the situation and do not provide treatment. Am I right???

Three sides...I can see that you are very passionate about this...maybe that clouds your vision? It just seems to me that you are not hearing what the rest of us hear.
It doesn't matter that the dogs were elderly...there is no excuse for their toe nails to grow into their pads..can you even imagine how painful that is?
It doesn't matter that (you say) 8 dogs are not losing their fur..4 did..badly...and all 12 have mange...clearly not a manageable situation for anyone...she had more than she could handle.
Lyme disease in all 12...they were bitten by ticks...never would have happened if she had put the drops on them to prevent flea and tick bites..12 dogs do not get Lyme disease when they are getting their preventative drops.
I could see with my own eyes how thin they were...did you see their ribs? I did. Again..no excuse for that.
I hear from your posts that you are very angry with the humane society. Even if everything you said was true and correct..it doesn't change the way those dogs were living.
It's easy to lash out when things go wrong, but in this case, I have to say, those dogs did need to be taken out of there.
I'm just saying...please take a step back and look at what the rest of us see. I know it's hard to hear all of these nasty things being said about someone you obviously care for, but on here, it's just words...those dogs had a lot more than words to deal with. They were suffering.
I've said it before, but it bears repeating...that woman has a sickness, she needs help..instead of defending her on here, realize that she has a lawyer and will have her day in court, and put your energy into finding her a good psychologist so no dog, or no family member has to ever go through this again.
Smartest comment I have seen in all of the posts on here.

Thank you. That was a little to far on her part.

Gary, ONE dog is too many, let alone 12. Their nails were growing into their paw pads. There is no way they could have run around. If they had really been to the vet, that would have been corrected. Also, the photos are showing their skin improving and that they're gaining weight after three weeks at the Humane Society. Why wasn't that happening under Barb Smith's care? She should be charged with neglect ASAP.

Not sure how many times I can say it. They were brought to the vet and being treated. copy and paste this link for the proof the lawyer has for those who are more visual learners and cannot read.

It's takes a news agency out of Syracuse to show both sides

I wasn't just referring to the mange. Explain the nails growing into the beds of their paws. Explain the broken leg. The ribs showing. They were not cared for the way they deserved to be.

I read the article. Her side still looks pretty bad. I think she needs help. If you think she is right, then perhaps you do, too.

Animal hoarding is keeping a higher-than-usual number of animals as domestic pets without having the ability to properly house or care for them, while at the same time denying this inability. Compulsive hoarding can be characterized as a symptom of mental disorder rather than deliberate cruelty towards animals. Hoarders are deeply attached to their pets and find it extremely difficult to let the pets go. They typically cannot comprehend that they are harming their pets by failing to provide them with proper care. Hoarders tend to believe that they provide the right amount of care for their pets.

You are 100% correct!!! There too many things wrong with these poor animals other than mange.

I know for a fact that the dog with the broken leg along with another one was abandoned by another person who did not want to take care of the dogs, so Barb took them in. The leg was already broken.
