Please read GoFundMe campaign, SIGN PETITION, see more detailed updates, as the case unfolds, see legal documents, photos and videos here on this page. We are trying to load, as approved, share the GoFundMe page and contribute if you can.

Dear Valued Viewer; Please first let us extend our sincerest apologies for dropping off the face of the planet. We did so, per our attorney’s advice, in an effort to preserve our lives, as well as our animal’s lives. We had to take drastic measures, after multiple death threats, months of constant recovery, from vandalism and thousands of dollars in property damages, from haters and their vandalism, we were forced to drop off grid, to run for our lives, hide from vandalism & the bullies, until things proceeded in the court of law. We were advised by attorneys; no contact what so ever, with anyone until now. You are getting the news as soon as I am getting permission to post it.

WHAT HAPPENED? 3 days after the last litter of puppies were vet checked & flown to their new owners; on 7-11-17 Authorities unlawfully seized, all our animals. The (referred to in photo albums) temporarily fostered females, back on site, for whelping, breeding or training for 7 to 10 days, put us over our supposed, county ordinances allowable numbers. This is exactly what we were trying to avoid, and the reason we spent months looking for land without restrictions in 2016, Scene in our 4 Albums labeled Journey of Faith on fb (Links to them, are pictures below).

NOW PROVEN IN COURT OF LAW! NO SUCH ORDINANCE EXISTS WITH IN THE COUNTY, WE LIVED IN FOR 25 YEARS , WE FORCED OUT OF THE STATE TO GET OUR ANIMALS BACK BY HANCOCK COUNTY PROSECUTORS, WHO LIED & BACKED OUT ON PROMISE TO RELEASE THE ANIMALS IF WE LEFT THE STATE! WE DID NOT LIVE WITH IN THE CITY LIMITS & THEY HAD NO LAWFUL RIGHT TO DO WHAT THEY DID!

Greenfield Hancock Animal Management LIED & HASSLED US SINCE THE YEAR 2000 OVER NON EXISTENT ORDINANCES. WE HAVE WORKED OFF SITE, SEASONALLY, SINCE THE YEAR 2000

BASED ON THE OVER REACH & LIES OF PEOPLE, WORKING FOR/AS GREENFIELD HANCOCK ANIMAL MANAGEMENT (GHAM)!

Please know that I will contact each of you, whom have so patiently, or not so patiently, waited for a response, or news, AFTER the first of the year, AFTER hearings, when I can better legally answer your questions and resolve any unresolved matters or issues.

Please understand we can only post what is approved for now, to keep our case safe for the animals sake.

Please know all hateful & slanderous comments will be reported & prosecuted to the letter of the law. So if you don’t support us move on! If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all. This is an informative post only

March 2016

The beginning of our efforts to save our family .....after being told by GHAM our animals would be taken by Greenfield Hancock Animal Management, if still on site in 48 hours, when they promised to return. We grabbed all we could fit in 2 rigs and left to travel across the country, looking in every state to find restriction free land,  to live on with our family hassle free.

After the county lured us back to town with promises of heavy fines over grass too long, USPS refusal to deliver our mail but no problem serving us with a county notice, BMV refusal to forward plates for our vehicles & Wells FArgo refusal to replace stolen Credit & Debt cards unless we came in to the branch for which the accounts were open. Forced to return to handle our affairs GHAM (Greenfield Hancock Animal Management) knocked on the door, to follow up on an anonymous call and let me know, I would be sited for animals running at large, due to cats outside, on my porch. Ferrel cats for which had been running the vacant property and fed by all the neighbors. Hancock County does not allow cats outside and if your feeding them, they are considered yours, as well as you will be sited for Animal Running at Large. GHAM Wanted to enter the home. I refused entry, as most of you know, Crystal was in labor, due to deliver any minute, and having complications. Princess was due in a week and having braxton hicks contractions. More details to follow, coming soon

28 days later with no idea what, why, and still haven't any straight answers, I Find a warrant for my arrest was rubber banded to my mail box (show photos) If I do not go to jail I do not get a day in court to try and get animals back. I have to go to jail to get a hearing. They did not want to give me a bond and when they did finally, it was twice any other alleged criminal sitting next to me.

I was forced to turn myself in to an over crowded jail. A jail with 27 inmates in an area, the same dimensions, approx. 15' by 30', that I had 6 of our dogs in and they claim I was negligent? While visiting our local hotel, I was Deprived of medications or care for my multiple sclerosis and other health issues. Fed food I am allergic to and then released on a bond twice as much as the alleged thieves, child molesters and drug dealers next to me were able to bond out on.

Disposition of Animals. hearing. Court grants GHAM the power to determine the disposition of the animals. They wanted $8600.00 a month and our attorney got them to compromise with $2200.00 a month bond/ransom. No visitation and no updates on condition. This amount is $1200.00 a month more than actual expenses, to care for the animals. The courts determined we must pay $2200.00 a month to keep animals alive and incarcerated until case could be heard.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsSj-XSuZBg&t=8s? GHAM banished us from the property a second time, because we were causing a rucus, you can see in video, the rucus I made, by asking direct questions in an attempt to get direct answers, and then clarifying I understood correctly. Police were called on us, while waiting on a receipt after paying the bond, by GHAM, we were never addressed by the police, since we were already in the vehicle when they arrived, but were followed/stalked us and kept us under surveillance thereafter, until we left the county, after closing on sale of our home Sept 30th. Our neighbor brought to our attention that he had not seen such a police presents in the area, in the 15 years he had lived next door. He said they followed me every time I left the house.

October 2nd, 2017 Marshal Pinkus @ Pinkus & Pinkus Attorneys retained & Discovery granted (Documents pertaining to case released) was given to us for the first time since seizure 2 months prior. The papers 3 Months after Seizure, that finally said what I allegedly did wrong.
