The TRUTH About "Help BRING Cassie HOME"

The Facebook page called Help BRING Cassie HOME claims that Cassie was stolen.  Truth of the matter is, she was adopted out with the help of Jennifer Weibring.  

This is a complicated mess that has taken over a week to piece together.  As long as this report is, this is the condensed version.

Let's start from the beginning....  

It's important to point out that Jami was fired from law enforcement for being not being truthful.  

Jami Bock Dabernig was a foster for Renee Smith.  Renee admits her mistake in not doing a home check first, but instead, took the word of "rescuer's" that Jami was fine.

Come to find out, Jami had animals seized by the Humane Society prior to fostering for Renee.  She had a medical condition that required emergency services to respond to her home.  The EMS contacted the HS after they saw the conditions in the home and the animals.  HS came and removed the animals due to poor health and neglect. 

After Jami was released from the hospital, instead of going to court and fighting for her dogs back, she signed the animals over.  

Jami blamed her family.  

My question is..... if she had Nadia since she was a pup, why did she crop the ears?  Who in rescue does that?  

Statement from Renee:
Jami Bock Daberning started fostering for me and she was interested in 2 dogs where I was pulling dogs from. So we pulled them and the understanding was we would sign paperwork etc because at that point I thought all was kosher
Jami Bock Daberning started carting in mulitple loads of animals from Boone County West Virginia
We started getting concerned for the animals so I pushed to bring the dog food to her home instead of meeting her somewhere to get it like normally was expected.
After multiple excuses I finally was able to.
The first time I was there I realized just how much I failed the dogs by not doing a homecheck.
She wanted me to take back one of the dogs she was fostering for me that day, I made up and excuse so I could come back the next day with my husband to get ALL my dogs then we were going to call HS once we knew our dogs were safely out.
Jami Bock Dabering the next day refused to let me take all my dogs she told me to call the cops etc.. She DID NOT have the dogs licensed to her to show ownership etc until that very day while I was at HS then she scooted to get them their licenses because she knew the laws being a fired ex cop.
The HS did go out to her property and called in specialists and there was a seize warrant on the animals but she cleaned the house all the aimals were gone and vacated the property. 
She ran to another county to live in a tent in her sisters yard where they could not go after her then. 

Renee was finally able to go to Jami's home.  What she saw shocked her.  She was unable to take her dogs home with her that day and was planning to come get them the next day. She regrets her decision of leaving them there for one more night. The very next day she went to the Humane Society to file a report.  An investigation was started immediately.   

Now comes the interesting part.  Jami must of known she was in trouble because the very next day when Renee went to file the complaint, it appears that Jami went to the feed store, licensing dogs that belonged to Renee in her own name.  If you look at the date at THE BOTTOM of the complaint above with the signatures and then compare it to the email below, you will see they were both at the HS the same day..... THE DAY AFTER RENEE SAW THE CONDITIONS OF THE HOME.  

These two have a history of stealing dogs.......
There were three dogs stolen.  All were originally stolen from a residence in Minerva, Ohio (Prince, Rosebud and Baby Girl)  that ended up at Jami's.  It was this conversation that was sent to the sheriff dept that led to the recovery of the dogs.  

 Crystal Miller of Pet Lovers Dog Rescue was charged for the theft.  I still don't understand why Jami was never arrested and charged for conspiracy to commit theft and conspiracy to traffic stolen property.  All the dogs were recovered.  

Crystal made a post about these dogs being neglected for months.  The truth of the matter, two of these dogs were dumped and the family cared for them for three weeks (not months), prior to them being stolen.  The third dog was a family pet of 14 yrs.  The humane officer was in contact with the family.  The man of the family was out feeding the dogs when she arrived and he provided proof of care, i.e. de-wormer and items needed to care for the dogs, while rescue was being arranged.   

After they were recovered, the family signed over Prince.  Prince was then stolen again from Renee's house after Jami found out he was with Renee.  Prince mysteriously reappeared (dumped out of a car up the road from Renee's) after pictures were taken by a witness and alerted Renee to his whereabouts.  

Crystal took a plea agreement to lesser charges. 

Let's move on to Jami.  What is going on this her?  

Jami had so many dogs, she couldn't control them.  Last year, there was a dog fight between Crystal (white dog pictured below) and several other dogs.  By Jami's own admission, she kicked on of the dogs (Crystal) so hard, she defecated.  

Jami asked Crystal Miller to help her place some dogs. Said she was going to have her killed if a home wasn't found.  Crystal wasn't the only dog to suffer the abuse of being kicked.  

This first screenshot is an incident that happened prior to Cassie arriving at Jami's.  I am just showing this so that people understand why so many others were concerned about the dogs in Jami's care and why Jennifer went to such lengths to get Cassie safe. 

Jennifer then works to get Cassie and two others away from Jami.  One of them has a cherry eye that was left untreated and the other had recurring mange (both still believed to be with Jami).  Renee agrees to take Cassie.  Jennifer then lies to Jami, using someone else's information as the "adopter" for Cassie, knowing that if Jami knew Renee was taking her, she wouldn't of agreed. 

This is where it gets really confusing.  Marta then pretends she knew nothing about her information being used.  Why? 

Next is a screenshot about Masa/Mason.  On the ss below, Marta's info was used to rescue a dog/human aggressive and leash reactive dog from Posh Pets out of NY to prevent Crystal Miller from getting the dog (which I agree with).  Posh Pets was given the info and did the home check at Marta's for her "sister", Monica.  Monica then brought the dog to an adopter in Ohio.  Masa only spent one night with the adopter and then decided they didn't want the dog.  Monica didn't want the dog back, so Jennifer contacted Renee to take the dog, instead of contacting Posh Pets.  Marta nor Renee were told about the dogs human aggression issues before agreeing to take him.  In fact, Marta claims the dog showed no signs of human aggression while with her. 

This is just a small part of that story, which we won't go into at this time.  This is being included to show a history between those mentioned in this article.  

Renee's second statement describing the events you just read about:
Cassie was a dog of Jami's. When Jennifer befriended Jami & Crystal when they stole those dogs, Jami asked Jennifer to help her place some dogs..( I think you can see this in one of the screenshots) and Jennifer said she would try... Jennifer came to me and asked if I Could help with some of the dogs because by that time she got a bad read from Jami. I at that time told her heck NO. I told her we were full and could not she said she would ask some of her rescue connections to help out I said good. She said can you quietly get the word out we need to move some dogs and they have some medical issues that need addressed as well. I said I could but noone would want to help being it was Jami and she brings trouble.. a few weeks had passed and she messaged me and said that she needed to move Cassie and 2 others one had cherry eye and was left untreated for several months and another had mange and it was reoccurring. I said again I really can't help. In the meantime she was telling me and showing me where Crystal was saying Cassie was getting abused by Jami and by the other dogs attacking her.. I said to her tell Crystal to go to HS within 72 hrs of seeing something like that first hand of course Crystal did not .. Jennifer's excuse Crystal is to scared of Jami. Like 2 or 3 days later I am getting ready for bed and Jennifer messages me and says Crystal said Jami is going to kill Cassie we have to move her now. I said why, her reply oh Cassie is fighting with other dogs., she asked if I Could hold her for a few weeks.. I called my husband at work around midnight explained what was going on and if we could hold her for Jennifer for a couple weeks why she looks for placement.  He said I guess only for a couple weeks and if Jami is willing giving her to Jennifer to place. Our name does not come into because we don't need the drama and crap Jami brings. I told Jennifer if Jami willingly gives her to you to place we can hold her for a short period but she must  be moved.She said okay I will just tell her I found someone for Cassie.. I said okay you guys will have to set up transport etc... Crystal was the transporter and my husband and I met Crystal to pick up Cassie. (Crystal has yet to find out that I was working with the cops on the stolen dogs and she would be getting a hearing notice in the mail) and she repeatedly told my husband and I how grateful she was that we was holding Cassie until Jennifer could find a placement for her that Cassie was miss treated and she could see what others were saying about Jami seeing it first hand.I did not know that Jennifer used a friend of her's information to get Cassie out and when I did me and Jennifer were no longer talking. The friend she used Marta messaged me to give me a heads up that Jami knew Cassie was here and wanted her back... I told Marta I had no clue that she was used and she said she knew but did not want to throw Jennifer under the bus. I told her to tell Jennifer to unblock me so we could figure out what to do to protect Cassie.So Jennifer had me fill out an adoption application through PTTR and a contract(post dated when she was not even on the board) she said lets first play it off and see if Jami leaves it alone so I went along with (first mistake) and then when Jami started threatening and had people at my house it was over, I told her to take me to court because she gave the dog to Jennifer and just because she had personal issues with me did not mean that Cassie was going back. Well shortly after that I had messaged PTTRS Chairperson (anonymous) about the funds owed because I was getting no where with Jennifer she wanted me to agree with everything she said about the old BOD members and I did not see it the way she did and it had nothing to do with funds owed.As you can see (anonymous) invited Jen in and that is when Jennifer got pissy and started using Crystal and Jami against me and that is the moment that Jennifer went to Jami stating that I stole Cassie. 
After Jennifer got caught by Jami for lying to her and faking an adoption contract and adopter because Renee posted a picture of Cassie on her timeline,  she turned around and tries to cover her ass. Jennifer was still working with Renee to get information from Jami up until this point.

Jennifer wasn't the only one lying, but Jennifer was undercover to get information on Jami.  Jami, on the other hand, seems to be a professional at it, too bad she can't keep her lies straight.  Yes, Jami was lied to by Jennifer in order to get Cassie out of Jami's home.  That doesn't excuse Jami's lies and misdirection.  She couldn't even keep her own lies straight on the Help BRING Cassie HOME page.  

Jami claims all of Renee's dogs are kept in small crates.  But then she publishes some of Renee's own pictures that show spacious, well kept, outdoor kennels and now claims "she hopes they're not left outside all the time"..... So which is it Jami?  Are they kept in small crates inside or are they left outside all the time with nothing to keep them warm?    

On a final note.... Cassie is safe, happy and well adjusted.  You can quit looking for her, Jami.  You obviously didn't care enough about her to do a thorough check on the "adopter" before you let her go.  

Thank you Jennifer for getting her out of a bad situation.  I do believe your heart is in the right place and you it's obvious you did what you did to help the dogs.  I do hope you learned something from all of this.  

Jami, you are  damn lucky you didn't get arrested for conspiracy and theft.

I think this thread touches up on the recent Florida debacle and another one. Anyway I copied as I received it. Rescue sure has become a greedy, and very, very seedy world.





This is happening with our California Pit Bulls, too. Some of the names and states are familiar.... and are on our face book pages. We can tighten up our pages, but it's the shelter system that is not paying attention to these complaints...and don't have a clue on what is happening to their dogs after the leave the shelter. Worst is all adoptions are just filling out the forms and hand over the money.

One ACO told me that he didn't care what happened to the dogs after leaving his shelter......and he was not even shocked at these "transporters" ..................

We had a very recent incident of transport going from CA to FL...................No health certificates, cages stacked to the ceiling, Piss and shit all over the dogs and they were not taken out of their cages once, in the 22 hour transport.

Dogs are being drugged to keep them quiet.......... No food or water. .dogs arriving sick, one pup dead, others may have been exposed to viruses............Pulled and put on a vetting and no quarantine.

Transporter was pulled over by a cop....Transporter has a long rap sitting in jail, all dogs and puppies have been seized. This happened in Fl. Local rescues are trying to help, but as long as the dogs/puppies are being held as Evidence, they are stuck in Dog Jail....I just hope they are providing medical care. One is at a dog hospitable, Parvo.....If you are not aware of what happens to dogs being held as evidence..........let me know and I'll tell you. I don't want to start a riot

One person wanted to trade her dog out and get a Pit Bull. One last thing, there are aprox. 30 Pit Bulls that have been pulled and put into boarding in CA, to wait on transport to KY...None have seen a vet. KY is in the center of dog fighting country. And "rescues" pocketed the money.

Pray for change, Please!!!!

I have no first hand knowledge of this, simply passing along information. Please do your due diligence when investigating any rescue or rescuer, as well as any fosters, transporters, etc. You are their voice!

Subject: FYI
I just wanted to let you know that the foster (Jami Bock Daberning) is now teaming up with a rescue Called Pet Lovers Dog Rescue out of Carrollton Ohio run by Crystal Dawn Miller of 4331 Milo Road Carrollton Ohio 44625 she has a facebook page here :
Crystal removed a dog from Jami's house last year (2013) because of it getting attacked by multiple pits and Jami abusing it but now she is letting Jami foster dogs for her. Crystal has been pulling dogs from Gray County GA and other counties. Paw and a Prayer and Dogs Deserve Better were told by the Cruelty Agent not to send dogs to Crystal and both groups responded with oh we don't care its just drama anyway. She is now looking to expend getting dogs in GA in other counties and is pulling numerous dogs very quickly. I was asked by the cruelty agent to spread it to people I know. I do have screen shot proof of Crystal stating about Jami being a hoarder, abusing Cassie and numerous pits fighting... Please be aware of either person.

Sincerely Yours, President & Founder of Pulled From The Pits Rescue & Sanctuary
Renee' Smith

Tabitha and 14 others were packed into a van that does NOT bother to feed, water or walk during transport.  These animals were drugged for the long, stressful ride to unchecked places.  The police asked how Thornhill could drive with the stench coming from the van.  It turned out, the stench was from feces and death.  

3 puppies didn't make it out alive.  Tabitha's reward, for making it to Florida under these horrible conditions, was to be dumped and brought into the nearest kill shelter in Florida (where she is sitting now).  Read the thread- Tabitha  

This is Nixon-  He too was "rescued" and on the transport from hell.  He was also dumped in a kill shelter.

Meet Bruno:

A beautiful pit that was " rescued " from Cleveland County animal control October 15th by Feaganes ClawsnPaws rescue. Friendly, lovable, good with other dogs and cats. He had been thoroughly checked out with other animals and had passed with flying colors. Bruno was one of Cleveland counties rescue coordinators favorite dogs. Little was she to know what would happen to him....

According to Feaganes, Bruno had attacked one of their personal dogs and killed a cat.

Instead of taking Bruno back to Cleveland County to explain what happened, Feaganes drove 10 minutes to their local animal control and dumped him like a piece of trash. They told Caldwell county that Bruno was showing signs of aggression.

All rescuers know what happens to aggressive owner surrenders at most shelters. They are immediately put down. This was Brunos lucky day. There was something fishy about the paperwork, so Cleveland counties rescue coordinator was contacted.

Feaganes had kept Bruno approximately one week at their rescue. It was stated that the same day Bruno was dropped off at Caldwell county animal control, Feaganes drove over an hour to Cleveland county to pull more animals. The same shelter they had gotten Bruno from!

So what happened at Feaganes rescue that turned Bruno so " aggressive " ??? He seemed to be fine at the shelter and with Treva.

Feaganes stated that Bruno had torn out of a kennel, mauled one of their personal dogs and killed a cat. No mention of this on the paperwork when they dumped him.

Treva, who picked Bruno up from Caldwell county stated:

 " The day I picked him up I threw everything I could think of at him and he passed with flying colors "
She had the paperwork and nothing was written about Bruno tearing out of a kennel or mauling/killing any animals.

When questioned about Brunos whereabouts, Feaganes lied. They stated that Bruno had been transferred to Merit Pit Bull Foundation.

Mrs. Coalson is a remarkable woman and has done wonders at Cleveland county. She would of taken Bruno back in a heartbeat.

Although it is frowned upon for a rescue to return a dog they have committed to, taking Bruno back to the originating shelter would of been the responsible thing to do. Instead, another shelter had to do Feaganes dirty work. It was an unforgivable, cowardly act by Feaganes. They lied, connived, tried to be sneaky and got caught. Yet still tried to sound like they were the savior of cats/kittens at Cleveland county
Feaganes tries to shift the blame by accusing Jennifer of killing animals. Obviously they don't know much about Jennifer or the changes she has helped to bring to Cleveland County
So not only did they almost have a dog killed, they lied about his whereabouts, they then tried to shift the blame for killing animals to the one person who busts her ass everyday trying to find sanctuary for the many lives that are thrown away like garbage by irresponsible owners and Feaganes rescue. 

Feaganes has stated that when their rescue makes a commitment to an animal, they stick with it. Good or bad. Obviously this is not true and it makes me question: How many others have met the same fate?

I would also like to point out that rescues are supposed to make sure that ALL animals that they adopt/foster out are spay/neutered. Unfortunately this is not true for the Feaganes. While they require that their foster parents have sterilized animals ( per their contract )

Feaganes question another about not neutering a dog

They ended up taking him into their rescue, his whereabouts are in question and whether he has been neutered yet or not since Feaganes website lists him as up for adoption, but not neutered.

At the time of this writing, there is at least one unaltered dog

 and several cats that have yet to be altered in their care.

Adoption fee for cats and kittens that are not yet spay/neutered is $25.00.
 " Most " cats are up to date on shots.....

Feaganes stated that they have a lady that sponsors 90% of their vetting. Considering that Feaganes stated that they took in 100 cats in a three month time period I have to ask:

How many of those 100 cats were properly vetted? 
Were they all spay/neutered? 
How many are still in Feaganes rescue?
As for the others, where are they now? 

Others are wondering/worrying about the cats status:

An example of how some of the cats/kittens are kept:

Some cages have more than 4 cats in them

The definition of rescue is to free from confinement

From the looks of this, they are taken from one cage, only to be put in another. Stuck in a bedroom, out of sight. Some cages contain more than four cats. Hardly any room there, nevermind the filth in litterboxes.

If it were not under the guise of a rescue, to me it would be considered a hoarding situation.

In my opinion, this is not a healthy situation for multiple animals to be kept in.

Feaganes rescue is now on the National DNA, DNR, DNT list. 

Feaganes is now trying to raise funds to get their 501 status. A 501 wannabe that is on a National DNA, DNR, DNT list. A rescue that dumps problem animals at kill shelters. A rescue that keeps animals in crappy conditions. 

Please, check out all rescues before sending animals. Do not give them warning that you are coming. This gives them time to clean everything. In order to see the real rescue, you have to just show up. This will give you some idea of how the rescue really keeps their animals.

You are the keepers of these unfortunates lives. They were thrown out by the ones they trusted.

It is up to you to make sure that they get the proper care that they truly deserve.
