Bad guy???? Nancy Felter isnt even fit to be called a human being! I live outside of Greensboro, NC and placed an ad in the paper for free to good home. This abuser called the night the ad placed and seemed very nice. She asked me to hold the dog until she could come to get him which was fine with me. After she arrived with a GOAT in her trunk (she said she was on her way to sell the goat to a friend), in the heat, with the car turned off I knew something was wrong. Anyway she went on her way with my family pet that I THOUGHT was going to a good home, I went right to my computer and googled her name, to my HORROR I found all this information. I called her several times and spoke to another lady in the home and BEGGED for my dog back, even offered her 150.00 which considering she got the dog for nothing was a pretty good deal. She wouldnt return my calls. Poor puppy and STUPID ME for not going with my instinct and I can only say I hope this woman rots in hell for the way she is treating these animals and I pray every night that for the sake of this pup she sold him to someone else! YOUR A MONSTER NANCY FELTER, karma can be a horrible thing!

I know that this is an old post, but it gets me fired up every time I re-read this one, and others. I went to Felter's property in 2008. Nancy Felter is one of the worst animal abusers I've ever encountered, and that's saying a lot! She is clearly mentally ill, but it's hard to give a ___(you fill in that blank yourself) when you actually see the nearly ONE HUNDRED VICTIMS OF HER CRUELTY THAT I OBSERVED ON HER PROPERTY.

Anyone who supports her has either: not been there lately, is a relative or cohort, a breeder colleague who (like Felter) cares nothing about animals with the exception of the profit they make from selling them, or is one of the MANY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS IN THE COUNTY OVER WHOM SHE CLEARLY HAS POWER!!

There is no way that any animal one who loves animals, or who can simply be considered SANE, could read her VERY INCOMPLETE charges and convictions and not be infuriated that justice has not been served. THE COUNTY LAW AGENCIES SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEIR COWARDICE!

Ma'am, you need a "re-visit" WHILE WEARING A NEW PAIR OF GLASSES RATHER THAN BLINDERS. I hope your animals receive better care, but your support of this "Dahmer clone" gives me serious doubt that they do. I pity them.

No one needs to write back and tell me that I
don't know what I'm talking about. I do. I've been there - and vomited much more due to the atrocities I observed than the stench of her rotten soul!

She lives in Ferrum, VA. I got a dog from her and have spent about $600 trying to get him well. I even contacted humane society in that area and they really don't seem to care.

I adopted a 16 mo.female rottweiller 11/09 from a gentleman in Roanoke who informed me that her prior owner was NANCY FELTER. When he got the dog she was skinny, frightened and timid. Nancy used the name Dixie for this dog. She was renamed Bella by her next owner. I was told that Bella had been abused under the care of Nancy Felter. I don't know if this abuse was physical hitting or if she received inadequate vet care or was under fed and isolated or all the above.I've been around dogs most of my life and this sweet dog has clearly been abused. She was happy around her owner when I first saw her but clearly afraid of me. She is small for her breed. I called the clinic on her rabies tag and all they could tell me is that a woman brought the dog in and insisted that the dog only receive a rabies vaccine. She refused all other vet care including an exam of the dog. If any one has had experience with Nancy and knows ANYTHING about Bella (aka Dixie), please let me know so I can share it with my vet. Thanks so much. My email is natura33@cox.net

I am thankful that Bella (16 month old rottweiler) has been out of harms way since i brought her in 10\09 from Nacey Felter. She however was very scared and timid,skinny,underweight and clearly something was wrong i was told that she had a liter of puppy after i had brought her. Which i clearly do not beleive after a couple of weeks i notice Bella was putting on weight which was a sign that she probally had not been feed for who know how long.I am glad that she is now with a loving lady known as lin (Hi Lin) and is doing well and happy able to enjoy her life instead of bein outside hit abuse etc. PLEASE DO RESEARCH ON NACEY FELTER BEFORE BUYING,ADOPTING,OR GIVING A DOG,PUPPY TO HER SHE MAY SEEM LIKE A NICE HUMAN BUT REALLY DEEP DOWN INSIDE OF COMPUTER NETWORKING THE RIGHT INFORMATION IS HERE TO HELP ALL OF US ON THE LADY. PEOPLE LIKE HER ARE THE REASON THE MANY BREED OF DOGS ARE NOT ABLE TO ENJOY LIFE WITHOUT PAIN. AND WITH ME SAYING THAT I WILL NEVER WASTE MY TIME POSTING ON HERE AGAIN IN REFENCE TO THE NAME NACEY FELTER BECAUSE SHE IS NOT WORTH THE TIME SHE IS NOT FIT TO BE A DOG HANDLER AND SHOULD BE OUTSIDE IN A CAGE
GOD BLESS THE ONES THAT HAVE GROWN TO LOVE THIER PET AND THAN FIND THIS SHOCKING IMFORMATION OUT LIKE I DID

This is likely correct. This board reads the IP address and places the location of the ISP under the person's name. Wirtz is close to Ferrum and is the location of the internet provider. It was obviously written by someone without basic language skills.

I also have gotten a dog from her that needed immediate medical care. Please if anyone has had any dealings with this woman or knows someone who has please post an e-mail here and I will get in touch with you immediately as I check this every day. She is still answering ads for purebred pets to give away and then breeding them to death. People are finally speaking up about her trying to get something done. Maybe together we can all get it done. This woman needs to be stopped for good. There is someone who says she can get it done but she needs everyone who has dealt with her in any way to come forward. Please help!

I think I got two dogs from her. We picked up two shelties. A black and white male, and a tri color female. They were both adult dogs. Probably around Dec or Jan of2010. Does she have dogs tied outside of her front yard? She wouldnt let us in the house or even look in. Thankfully the dogs were ok but I did have to bring them to the vets that night because they were lifeless. But nothing major. Does anyone who has been in remember seeing these shelties?

I saw the shelties. I went to look at them but most of the dogs in her house had mange and I was terrified to take them. My cousin went to her home a month later and bought a chihuahua mix puppy and it had parvo, coccidia, worms and covered in fleas. She is selling dogs on craigslist.com , hoobly.com , and kijiji.com . maltese and other poodle crosses. She now lives in Wytheville,Va. We need to warn Wythe County officials about her.

Are you sure you aren't Nancy Felter herself? The wording and poor grammar from this comment are the exact same as from Nancy Felter's craigslist postings. You have no credibility.
