A couple yrs ago that David guy was arrested for animal abuse up near Bowling Green? He was keeping his elderly father and multitudes of animals in an old school building. Sorry I don't remember the name of his "rescue". Well Shannon stood up for, said nothing was wrong and paid the bail to get his sorry butt out of jail. THey found many dead dogs there too.. Birds of a feather........

"Now hear this".. I agree 200% with you on that.. I know that this woman WAS and IS associated with all this. She as well should be held accountable.She was and still is getting dog and cat food brought to her house from a shelter worker that was donated to the humane society and they stock pile it and hand it out to their"selected few".I will agree with you on all accounts with all these involved. Its not just Shannon its ALL who was associated out to make money from all this when money was placed to take care of ANIMALS not their own bank accounts and live off of a Woman who adored animals!They tell people who surrender their animals they will place them in good loving homes but as we all have found out THIS IS NOT THE CASE .. they ALL lied to everyone.I pray they all get their just due and suffer like they have made so many animals and families suffer and families wonder if any they surrendered are in happy safe homes and didn't end up in a puppy mill or a empty dog food bag thrown out to be burnt. I do not even believe mercy should be given to ANY associated in this massive ring of abuse to all these innocent fur babies being dogs or cats.

Audie Craft and Shannon Lacewell are and have been partners for many years. Audie was investigated when she was in LaCenter (for good reason too). Shannon has been neglecting animals for many years. Way more than the 7 months that ARC was investigating her. Too many people know too much....if only the authorities can figure out who to talk to. Unfortunately a legal case can't be based on hear say. They will have to prosecute her on the here and now that they have hard evidence of.

his name is David Howery and he was arrested in Adair county (Columbia), Kentucky. His rescue was ironically called "Clean Slate"!! It was a disgusting nasty hellhole as bad as Lacewell's and yes his elderly father had to live in that mess. They took right around 250 dogs from there, most were very underweight and 90% of them had degrees of mange from slight to severe and wounds from fighting. There were also goats, birds, cats, ducks. Many dead animals found, including a horse. Yep, Lacewell paid his bail and he quickly made his way to her place. He was court ordered to stay away from animals! He didn't show up for his probation hearing and there was a warrant issued for his arrest. The Adair county authorities knew he was there and Graves county knew he was there. The fact that both counties turned a blind eye to Howery being involved with animals at another "rescue" makes me sick and says alot to how Kentucky laws are so lame and authorities and lawmakers just don't care. If they'd have gone in after Howery, they could have shut Lacewell down a long time ago and many animals' lives would have been saved. Welcome to Kentucky.

From May 2009 until Oct 2010 I drove the 4-lane between Union City TN and Fulton KY on a daily basis. I began to see the unbelievable. Full blooded dogs walking down that 4 lane, sometimes 2 or 3 times a week. I saw some horrible after effects of the POS that was dumping them out on the road. In total I saw 4 Great Pyrenees, a bloodhound, a German Shepherd, a Bassett Hound, a Walker Coon Hound, a St. Bernard AND a blond Afghan Hound walking down the road over about 3 mths. during that winter. The Great Pyrnees were killed on the road, as were the Shepherd, the coon dog, and a pickapoo in a pet carrier that looked like it had blown out the back of a pickup and been hit by a diesel. I went back after the St Bernard, the afghan, and the Bassett but was not able to find any of them.

I suspect the blond afghan was your dog. Try posting in the Union City TN forum, maybe someone will give you some info, but this road is a cross-county artery and anybody from anywhere could have picked them up. I posted this a long, long time ago on a thread about that Union City shelter.

They didnt show any pictures of any food or water that was left for the dogs. And was that her house that all those caged animals were in with the paper all over the floor. Just so sad that someone could do that.

If it had not been for ARC that bitch would still be in business. I heard she had been reported about animal abuse for 2 years to the Graves County Sheriff department. As the rescue was going on Feb 14th Sheriff Redmond (whatever his name is)said to the WPSD TV reporter, that Graves county takes animal abuse very seriously. Did I miss something? HELL NO!! Graves county OR the state of Kentucky takes animal abuse seriously!

That's because there was NO food or water for the dogs. They were eating their dead.

CINDY SCHULTZ, DO NOT JUDGE ME OR MY FAMILY when you DO NOT know what we were going through! We did what we felt was best for Marley Grace @ that time in our lives. We believed the info that we were given in regards to Shannon just as you believed the info you were given in regards Audie Craft (that evidently wasn't right)! Our info came from a major animal lover that I trust & love dearly who was evtdently decieved by Shannon just as a bunch of other people were. Have a blessed day!!!

biege afghan hound...Read the story just a few up from this one. About someone driving the 4 lane. They seen a lot of full blooded dogs walking down that 4 lane. One was a blonde afghan. I sure hope this wasn't yours. I think the Attorney General and the IRS needs to check this witches books out, along with some more shelters she and her daughter were involved in. So sorry about your dog, sounds like many people got lied too.

Audie Craft has not been associated with Lacewell since 2009. LBL rescue is also not affiliated with Lacewell. We have learned that they severed relations because of Lacewell's sick dogs.
LBL rescue has clarified that Audie Craft was never on their Board of Directors and that she was only a volunteer at one point. LBL has also stated that they have never had any dealings with Shannon Lacewell.

Snappy, Thanks so much, i did read that post but it says from may 09-oct 10 & that winter which would have been end of 09 to the beginning of 10 we did not get rid of Marley til july 10 so im sure it wasnt her. I feel like Marley either went where i was told or sold to a breeder because they are about $500 dogs. I dont see how Shannon would have benefitted from keeping that expensive of a dog unless Shannon herself was breeding & selling which i haven't heard anywhere of her doing that. thanks again!!!

I also pray the poor babies find a loving and safe haven for them to know what true love for them is.I treat mine as one of my own children. They are spoiled like grandchildren and are a part of my family and I wouldn't have it any other way

It is well documented that she has been involved in several high profile abuse cases in the past. She has always been the one defending the accused abusers. ie Clean Slate, Union City pound. Sheriff Redmon's own statement says he has been recieving complaints re: her and her property for 2 years. Apparently there has been plenty of reporting but not much action on those reports. Who's to blame for that? Many reported but no one acted. Now there is a big shooting case to investigate so I wonder if the animal case will fall to the bottom of the priority list. Maybe calls to the district attorney may be in order to keep this on the forefront.

Audie Craft was with Creatures Great and Small. She and Shannon where like siamese twins attached at the wallet at that time. Suffice it to say, Creatures is much better off without her and so glad she is gone.
Shannon was banned from the Petco in Hartford some time ago.
