I have seen far too many dogs discribed as "rescues" for sale...when clearly all rescues and shelters make you sign a form that says you will bring it back and not rehome a pet gotten from them..I think that is the basis for the word ADOPTION...which means your not able to place it any where you think...it must go back to where you got it..for what its worth..I think the call was placed for the animals welfare...and many have had animal control called on them from things they say on these forums..and in all fairness if we saw a post of child abuse it is our duty to call the proper authorities on that too..just my opinion mind you
jawlawww, why would anyone think you are me? I post at the * as Skellington (or I guess its F*e now). I just saw this post about Katz and felt the need to comment. I've always enjoyed Kats posts and thought it was wrong to see her being bashed here.
Please refrain from mentioing other forums. Thank you

jaw, think again. She posted that list on a thread here at terrificpets. How else would I know that? Straight from the horses mouth, that's how.
I don't have "days" to find that stuff. But I do have the time to take in order to do something good for an animal...if not several. Is it my fault I have a good memory? I always thought that was a more desirable feature of mine....
The proper way to handle this would be to call the shelter if you had concerns. Let the shelter handle it from there. Posting it on a board in an effort to humiliate her is just wrong. It was no one else's business. Notifying the shelter would have been enough. You don't gain anything by posting it here except to humiliate her.
katz posted on several forums, about harley. how she fostered him because he was about to be put down and they called her and "begged " her to take him. all lies. i am the one that discovered the lie. my reason for calling was not originally about katz. i was inquiring about another dog and was told that they do not foster. when asked why katz was allowed to foster harley, i was told that he wasnt fostered, but adopted by her. all that was said. i asked her in a private place what was up and she continued to lie saying they must have made a mistake and she was calling to find out what was up. another person called , but just to see if he was available and were also told that he had been adopted. when confronted, she admitted that she lied. no one was "out to get her" they just wanted the truth. plain and simple. no one brought it here in public to tp. katz did that HERSELF. now she is the poor thing and we are the bad guys. go figure...
when you post your entire life on a forum, at least be truthful. no one likes to be duped 24-7. when the lies go on and on, eventually someones gonna call it. just how many animals has she rescued from that shelter ? shes rehomed at least what ? 15 ? 20 ? more ? in a few years time. thats alot of discarded pets. its not a tired of the old, so bring in the new thing. these are living breathing beings. taking an animal from a shelter to satisfy the urge for a new pet, keeping it a few months , then rehoming the old one, because the newness wore off, is not in the best interest of the animal, but rather a need for self satisfaction. the worst of it all is that the dog needs surgery, badly. she admits she can not afford it, so why take the dog in the first place ? call some rescues. get the dog the help you cant give it. sell, hock , or do whatever it takes to raise the money for surgery. once she ADOPTED him , he became her responsiblity. no one elses. hindsights 20/20, but taking care of the animals that you OWN is a nescessity. period.
and fyi, no one posted it here on tp. it was all in private until KATZ HERSELF brought it here.
Oops. Back again. IamsPurdy is so right. Maybe everyone agrees that she is not doing what we would do, but to humiliate her on a forum like this is just awful. This just happens over and over again. No one has the right to do that....
IAMSpurdy & Jawlaw, since I have deleted some posts at Kat's requests, perhaps you have missed the point that SHE is the one who brought it up on the forum. No one else. This thread was in response to posts Katz made. I find it admirable to stand by a friend, however, this is not an instance of someone else bringing something private out publicly. It was done by Katz.

I read every post on this thread, however I don't visit here often because the first time I tried to sign up it said they weren't accepting new registrations. I thought that was crappy so I went to *. I come hre about once every other week to read a few posts and when I saw this I HAD to respond. I don't care how you sugar coat it, it's just wrong to do what you did. What do you mean she posted it at both places? What does that have to do with anything?
Once again, PLEASE refrain from mentioning another forum by name.

Why would you delete her posts (even at her request) and then leave this thread? It doesn't make sense. Its like one side of the story is being told.
Even if Katz brought it here, she at least admitted she had a problem by doing so. That IS the first step, you know? Its like as soon as she takes the first step she is knocked back down 3 steps by people on this thread.
This is nothing more than humiliation and no one on this board would like it done to them.
