Interesting how 'Joisy' managed to post not 1 - not 2- but 5!!!! long winded replies and never once mentioned the original topic of this discussion.(that's a lot of time on her hands for someone who claims to be involved in SO MANY charitable endeavors and still finds the time to be a 'wife' and 'mom'.......Yeah. Not so much.)'Joisy' seems more worried about deflecting from the topic and hand and bashing anyone from Pennsylvania -(which, according to Joisy is where he/she currently lives, though I'm not sure why, since we are obviously a state full of 'pastie' making morons - I'm not sure what a pastie is....) than discussing what happened to these poor animals - so let me once again bring it back.(Though I'm sure someone with that much time to kill will try to get in the last word that has nothing to do with the topic once again....) The fact that Almost Heaven was allowed to operate under those conditions for as long as it did is inexcusable. I'm glad the state finally shut down Skip and I hope he is punished to the fullest extent of the law.

People who have kind souls for human beings who are less unfortunate, are to be admired, but not people who are angry and have foam coming out of the mouth. They are in it for themselves "probably". Joisy, I said "probably", not you "are", because your actions are very sad. You make Joisy people look very bad, and I am sure they probably wouldn't like you with all of your pushiness. I wouldn't want you at any of my charities. All people who I know who express great human kindess, are also involved with the welfare of animals. If you truly have a heart (and be honest)lol, then you would feel the same about protecting all living things. Or at least just say one thing and leave all of the other unecessary baggage out of it. It isn't one or the other. This is from readings that I have come across. I am looking forward to reading all of your 5-6 foaming from the mouth comments. But remember...you are always the instigator, no matter where you write in any forum. I have seen you before, a couple of times, and you are not liked....so does that tell you something???

I most certainly did speak of the original topic, go back & read again. As for the amount of my 5 posts & what I do, try paying attention to what time of day they were written. I don't know about your neck of the sticks but most charitiable events don't take place at 3 in the morning.

Do you honestly think it matters to me if I am liked on here or not? This isn't high school, you may be trying for miss popularity, I certainly am not. Really, you overestimate me.

It is unbelievable and it is a disgrace that these kennel owners have abused animals and are still "allowed" to keep 25 of them! Punishment of 10 years in prison without the possibility of early release is the only answer, thus sending a serious message to others who abuse animals. Our laws and our court system are a digrace.
