Apr 2, 2013 Full story: Examiner.com 24

Animal rescue isn't as simple as some may believe, and a lot of inexperienced, albeit well-meaning, rescuers find themselves overwhelmed within a short time.

This women is not a rescuer. Many of her cats were bought off the internet from breeders. SHE abused her creditionals as a veterinarian to obtain animals sometimes from clients at the practices she worked. She worked at North Shore Animal League as the VP of the medical center and as staff veterinsrian. She adopted numerous cats from Nortshore and even though they knew of the living conditions they let her keep taking home more. She would bring in sick emaciated cats and then euthanize them. NSALwas ince questioned by the crematory about this. As for the eldery woman it is not her mother. She has a history of befriending elderly and sick people taking care of their animals and then becoming their guardians and taking control of their estates. She is a mean selfish person and the poor animals paid the price. There are probably hundreds of dead animals buried on her property. SHAME ON NSAL FOR ALLOWING THIS

I agree completely with Annie. I know from personal experience that the woman in question is not to be trusted. She preys on lonely, sick, and elderly women. Unfortunately the animals under her care suffer from hoarding sickness.

As someone who worked at Nortshore Animal League when this person was the VP of the Alex Lewytt Medical center I can tell you they knew all about her hoarding They let her adopt over 20 cats and they knew she had many more at home some she bought on line. She brought in a kitten that needed a leg amputated because it was hanging from a curtain and she didn't know how long it had been she brought in another frozen because it got stuck in her freezer the list goes on and on and NSAL ignored this abuse

She has been taking advantage of sick and elderly women for years everyone who knows her knows about this. She loved to brag about it and people she worked with and for saw what she did. One woman was a vet she worked with at North shore who had cancer and passed away and left her everything including her pets snd what she did with those animals was disgusting so she finally got hers

Annie, are you referring to Dr. Kathleen Dunn, VMD? I heard she also worked at a few places on Long Island after leaving NSAL. What a shame for all those animals, as well as the people she took advantage of. I sure hope she seeks and receives treatment so that history doesn't repeat itself.

I annie. Do you know where Dr.Dunn is now? Take a look at this website - http://www.zoominfo.com/p/Kathleen-Dunn/30176...
She now claims to be a Board Member of the National Association of Catholic Chaplains. I think she's trying to scam older, wealthy Catholic women.

Dr. Saver knew all about this and gave Dr.Dunn some cats from her practice, Catnip and Carrots, only to later learn they died in Dr. Dunn's basement.

Dr. Saver did not know that Kathy Dunn was a hoarder. She was appalled when she learned of Dr. Dunn's hoarding activities. You might be interested to know that Dr. Dunn is now living in CT with her hoarding partner.
