In my opinion this is a long time coming. I have reported her several times to no avail. Thank you Dr Magyar for standing up for those without a voice!

I have known Debi Smith for years in conjunction with Dalmatian Rescue. She is a fine person, full of compassion, that has dedicated many years to saving the discards of our breed. In particular, I have worked hand in hand with her over the Dals that NO 0NE would help - no rescue groups, no shelters, etc. I have one of Debi Smith's dogs here - one that we got out of Hell. If I had an emergency situation, Debi Smith would be one of the first people I would call. I truely feel sorry for the one and only post above that again seeks to harm a rescuer. This is not a surprise to me, because it has been my experience that people that are not willing to post their name/identity often try to discredit others.If this person truely believes her allegations are true, then she should have the guts to take the heat or "the glory" for her opinion. Speaking "for standing up for those without a voice", I think the dogs that Debi has gotten adopted into wonderful homes also have a voice. They say BRAVO TO DEBI SMITH!
