She shouldn't be allowed any type of animal at all. Someone should do the same thing to her

I'm the person that turned her into the SPCA. She is gutter trash & an animal abuser & killer. She should never be allowed to own an animal again. Anyone that has ever been in her home & allowed this abuse to continue should be prosecuted as well.

Barb Hofmeister complained repeatedly to PSPCA as she tried to get AKC registration papers for her dog.She is a spiteful, vindictive nasty old woman.Don't you think it odd that most charges were dismissed and NOT GUILTY!!!!
Dogs were ordered returned FOR A REASON

Iluvmydog - Slander much? I think it's odd that you are defending a person found guilty on 22 counts of animal cruelty and that was ordered to not own more than 3 animals for the next 5 years, regardless of how many charges were dropped she was still found guilty.

I find it odd that you are slandering innocent people all over the internet to defend a person found guilty on 22 counts of animal cruelty. Just for your information...it is very, very easy to track a person through the IP address so you might want to be a little more careful about the accusations you are throwing out when people have vet records to support the choices they made. Not very smart, are you?

I will follow this family all my life. I have asked the PSPCA not to release any animals until the fine is paid in full.

There were 22 dogs & 4 birds involved. Jean Knapp was found GUILTY of 1 count of cruelty on each dog involved. If I didn't purchase my dog the day I did she would have died also. Many, many animals have died at the hands of Jeanne Knapp.

After meeting this family of racialy inferior Romas (gypsies) I understand the policies of the Nazi SS and why they killed tens of thousands of Asocials in Eastern Europe like the Knapps & Albanese. It was a start.

This woman was recently found guilty and the Judge Kenneth Seaman has ordered the return of all the dogs to her daughter. I have two of them and must return them by court order today. I am livid. The judge needs to be strung up by bad publicity and removed from office. Can anyone help?

I am Jeanne's sister. you want to talk slander, barb hofmeister turned jeanne in because she wanted AKC papers on a dog that SHE INSISTED on buying at a reduced price.
We were willing to work with some of the foster homes, you can thank Annette Hoffman PSPCA and the other liars at the PSPCA for why you cannot keep your "fostered",not BELONGING TO YOU DOGS!!!!
poor little Annie, a tiny yorkie, that weighed 10lbs that the PSPCA claimed was emaciated, DID NOT RECEIVE TREATMENT in the care of the PSPCA, DIED for lack of medical care.
And Barb hofmeister, stalk away, when I catch you at my house, or near it, YOU WILL GET WHAT YOU ARE BEGGING FOR!!!!NO THREAT----Just a PROMISE

I am over-joyed that ALL animals in the hands of the PSPCA that BELONG TO MY FAMILY will be returned.

DID YOU KNOW, some dogs were left at the Montrose SPCA in dark cages and HAD NOT SEEN THE LIGHT OF DAY FOR OVER A YEAR???Isn't that a wonderful way to RESCUE an animal.
Oh, that's right, at a recent hearing where the PSPCA was found GUILTY of WILLFUL CONTEMPT, the Assistant DA Susquehanna Count stated, Well, THEY ARE JUST ANIMALS!!!!!!!!
And Yes, A LAWSUIT on the PSPCA is imminent.THEY ARE NOT WHAT THE TV SHOW depicts them as. Ain't it also ODD, Not one rescued dog had so much as a flea, worms, nothing.ALL OVERWEIGHT

I am a dog lover and think this entire scenario is sad. Nobody should treat these innocent animals this way, no matter who they are. Animals should be free and people need to get past their prejudices and self-esteem issues on their own instead of taking it out on the animals. Anyone who thinks this type of activity is okay is wrong and slandering the hands that help is not the correct approach either. Organizations like the ASPCA are always on the lookout for animal cruelty. If you know of any innocent animals in the same scenario as those discussed here, visit their website at http://www.aspca.org/fight-animal-cruelty/

It's my understanding Jean Knapp is dying from cancer. Hope she suffers as bad as the poor animals suffered. Once she's dead & gone I will be happy.

Your statement above shows just what kind of a nasty woman you are Barb Hoffmeister.

Yeah, she layed on a cold concrete slab for over a year, suffering, BECAUSE YOU CAME TO THE RESCUE!!!!
Several other dogs also remained in the PSPCA in philly, on cold hard concrete, over a year...THANKS AGAIN TO YOU!!!!
You are a spiteful, nasty old witch, and I hope Karma comes back and kicks you right in your fat ass you ols SEA HAG!!!! joni
