I have a feeling thaty the person who is the subject of this article probably did no wrong. They are probably one of the many people on LI who acts as an impromtu shelter- taking in strays and lost dogs and trying to find their owners oir getting them adopted. Some of these people even pay to adopt animals from the "kill" "Shelters" and adopt them out. Government does not like it when individuals compete in areas in which the fovernment is in business...so the town in this case, probably merely found out that this person had alot of dogs and may've been operating an impromptu shelter...so they manufactured a case against them so they could close it down.
Yet another case of the government NOT going after real crime, but rather, practicing crime itself in order to further it's own interests.
Town operated doggie death camps, euphemistically known as "shelters" get rewarded with more of our tax money for the more dogs they put to death. They don't want competition; they don't want the number of dogs they can kill to diminish, so they go after people who compete with them...unless those people are "licensed"[read: "Have agreed to practice their service in such a way so as to not compete with the town"]
Another conspiracy theory!!! Animal shelters do enjoy working with legitimate rescues. These people are thieves and scam artists and nothing more. They ruin the good name and cast doubt on animal welfare groups eveywhere.

Bull! I was interested, both on LI as well as here in KY. in working with the shelters to relieve the overcrowding and prevent as many dogs as possible from being euthanized, and helping to find them homes...all at my own expense....and could get absolutely NO co-operation from these town-run "shelters". They were not willing to participate in anjy ay, shape or form; they could care less about the animals, anmd just told me that the only option was to pay their fees and adopt the animals myself. You, my friend, are very naive. Just like how they don't make iot clear to people who drop off stray animals that the animals will almost definitely be euthanized. Youi should know that where money and politicians are involved, there is corruption and greed...these municpal "shelters" are BUSINRSSES that profit from putting animals to sleep. I should know...I was recently asked to participate on the board of a group that was pushing to establish a shelter in my county here...I refused when I heard the details of how the shelter would operate (if it were private industry instead of municipally funded, those details would have been called a "business plan")
It sounds like you just want to stay on the outside and criticize. I do work with the town shelters and believe it or not the people that work at these shelters do care and get attached to the animals and try to do the best they can for them. Your better then everybody else attitude probably just turned them off and they didn't want you around.
It turns me off.

You are right. I know of people who work at the Brooklyn shelter on Linden who actually call people up to ask if they want a dog. I called there once because they had a Yorkie there and my Yorkie group was asking around to see if a person in the metro area was interested. I called there and of course by that time more then a few people were asking for that dog and he had been adopted. The person on the phone had taken a few dogs home that were not doing well in the pound and asked if I would be interested in a Bichon Frise! She was also voluntering for the Bichon Rescue. And I said sure Since I had already adopted two dogs I gave them for a reference so I did not have to go through the background check. And I went to pick him up the next day. He is a great dog with the best disposition. His owner had gotten too sick and had to move in with her daughter and the place did not allow pets. She was just working at the shelter and she brought dogs home to her apartment that needed extra care because of seperation anxiety. She told me most of the employees do the same thing. I get upset just think whould of happened to Snuggles if she wasn't so caring about animals and took the time to help him. I guess it is the shelter and who is running that dictates how caring the employees are, but I know the one in Brooklyn they do care. I am shure it is a kill shelter but that is not a policy made by the employees. But they try their best to make sure they can adopt the dogs out. When I was there people were lined up to adopt dogs and cats. These people who works at these pounds or shelters are heros. Just like with any job you get riff raff who have no business working in certain jobs, but on the whole these people are good people.

What a shocking news about Karen Schleich s the ugly wicked to charge with one count of possession of stolen propertly. My son talked to the website about the adoption to get information. so we got the puppy named Mimi(the pit bull) last Oct 2006.But I dont know the birthdate of her. He paid $250.00 to Karen. I feel funny that she changed the story about our puppy,the pit-bull. How lucky is Mimi as goood dog as behavior normal.. Karen must give us the money back. She is liar , I never thought she d do that .. How come she dares to have animal cruetly.. SHe deserves to be in jail .
Truly yours

What about humans - that is an idiotic statement. What does the animal cruelty situation have to do with human abuse situations as far as one taking precedence over the other? People like you need to roll up your sleeves and DO something instead of criticizing those who already DO roll up their sleeves and help whatever animal or human is in need. Frankly, I am very sick of people like you who are big on talk and short on action. Joan Harlin
p.s. When was the last time you volunteered at a homeless shelter or nursing home?

We're glad you left too. Amazing how so many former LIers are soooo happy they left yet they keep coming back to read the local news! Why is that?
A) Many of us - myself included - still have family on LI. So we ckeck in from time to time to see what's going on

B) Many of the "crazy LawnGuyLand" stories actually make the national news scene (not this one, but Buttuafuoco getting back with Amy did, for example)and that's how ex-LIers find out

C) Some of the not so fun LI stories / facts come out in general news / web articles like "20 highest tax rates in America" (congrats, Nass / Suff is #3); "Most overpriced Real Estate in America (N / S was # 6 or 7); "Most likely to not bounce back from a Housing Bubble" (in top 10, don't remember the #) etc

So, go have fun paying more property taxes in a month than I pay yearly; getting an anal from LIPA and SCWA monthly, overpriced, overtaxed everything - ranging from the $6.50 packs of cigarettes to $12 movie theater tickets; filling your home heating oil tank at what, now -$500 a pop? and putting up with crime-infested suburban ghettoes 2 miles from your "nice" (read "white") neighborhoods - all shrinking fast, BTW - and thinking that everyone who left "must be a loser"...

Almost everyone I know who has adopted from North Shore Animal League has gotten a violently ill dog/puppie. A few even died within days of their adoption. North Shore Animal League is not properly caring for their animals and they are dying from diseases or being left to suffer sick unless adopted out. Please be careful we have seen a lot of families go through heartache after adopting pets from NS only to watch them die within a week of bringing them home, and then having to pay $$$$$ in vet bills and fighting with North Shore Animal League over it.
That happened to one of my neighbors. The poor dog died within a month after they got it from North Shore. After a while those people got a nice little healthy dog from Herding Dog Rescue. He plays with my Bideawee mutt:
You're BOTH full of it, or, more than likely, you're talking to yourself.

You are kidding right? So many people have adopted from NSAL only to bring their pet home and spend $1000 on vet bills and more than likely to watch it die. I am not joking and have quite a few friends that have been through this. Shelters are NOT ALL THEY SAY THEY ARE!!!

They're just jealous because they don't have the guts to stand up to their wives, quit the job they hate, and move to where the people are sane, and where they could once again live like white people. Heh...when I was a kid, all my neighbnors on LI were refugees from the City....escaping the crime of the nigs and ricans; Now we're the ones escaping LI for the same reasons and more.
So now you live in a cave in Kentucky. Just where you belong. And to think we thought the Neanderthals became in extinct 24,000 years ago.

People like these are the worst of the worst. Thank God the dogs were rescued. I would like to see all three of them placed in a 6 x 9 foot cell to live in their own feces and urine. They are worse than "hoarders" who truly believe they are helping the dogs. These people are thieves and charlatans and need to rot in jail for a very long time.

Hey Newslady38, I hope your friend Dave rots in hell for eternity. He's no "good ol' boy". He's a thief and a scammer. People who have no regard for helpless animals also have no regard for people.

I personally know Kristen and I know she would NEVER STEAL A DOG ! This article is full of B.S. I have two dogs rescued by Kris, and I have been to her home and have seen what she goes through to keep the dogs alive and to find them homes. Most of the dogs are pit bulls or pit mixes or dogs that are disabled that would be put to sleep. She is dedicated to the animals and never asked for a dime when I adopted my dogs. The work she does is heartbreaking and exhausting and she does not deserve this pathetic excuse for an article in Newsday.
Full of BS is exactly what you are. Your friend is a low life scank. I hope her behind lands in jail for one hell of a long time. These poor dogs deserve better. As for the ones she stole, did she ever once think that their owners were grieving for them, wondering what happened to them? No, I doubt it. All the bitch saw was $$$ to be made. Does she also hook on the side?

I personally knew Karen, and I never saw this coming, I would never think in millions of years that she would ever do something like this. I am honestly in shock. Altough I have learned that you don't always know what people are "really" doing, I knew her as a caring animal-lover. I'm not really sure what I think about this..

Can you not read or what??? Not once did I say "he was a good boy". All I was saying if you happened to read the rest of my post was that David and his family were animal lovers. I haven't seen them for years but I do realize that some people change over the years. I'm an animal lover and have nothing but disgust for people who mistreat animals. I'm sorry to say that I feel this way about David. In the meantime, maybe you should take a reading comprehension course or don't comment unless you know what you're commenting about.

Hey Cheyenne - talk to Observer - you seem to have the same amount of brain cells - never once did I say he was a good boy and I also have no regard for people who mistreat animals. By the way, I also have no regard for people who don't know how to read or who can't formulate their own thoughts.
