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.
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.
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.
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.
