Rescue blacklisted from pulling dogs

Rescuers blacklisted from shelters after dogs found dumped in another county

Two animal shelters in Arizona have blacklisted “rescuers” from pulling dogs from their facilities after it was revealed that dogs pulled from one animal control agency had been dumped months later at a different shelter in another county. On Wednesday, ABC 15 News reported about a couple associated with Kim’s Caring Hearts Rescue and accusations that they are responsible for the failed rescues.

Kimberly Kulpa is one of the alleged “fake” rescuers who has been red-flagged from the Pinal County Animal Shelter and Maricopa County Animal Care facility. This week, social media has been circulating a warning about the “rescue” agency tied to the alleged dog dumping – the warning reads:

911 SPECIAL NETWORKING!!…..PLEASE HELP AND PLEASE SHARE!!…..From November 2016 to January 2017 Kim’s Caring Heart Rescue (belonging to Kim Kulpa) Director Michalel Polnoff dumped at Pinal County Animal Shelter (6) dogs …..THESE TWO STILL ALIVE AND STILL THERE! …..PLEASE OPEN YOUR HEART & YOUR HOME ……ADOPT >>> RESCUE >>>> FOSTER…..SHARE SHARE SHARE!!!

PLEASE if you have any idea where any of the other dogs are that this rescue disposed of please let the public know so that we can help. They could be at any animal shelter across the united states. PLEASE If you can have your local animal shelters check their records for the above mentioned names. PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION

God Bless Pinal County Animal Care Director, Staff and Volunteers!!

Reporters with ABC 15 News attempted to reach the rescue group operators at the agency’s address, but discovered that the house had recently been vacated. According to the news agency, the driveway was littered with trash and a padlock is on the door.

A Google search reveals that the Facebook page for Kim’s Caring Hearts Rescue has been deleted.

    All rescue organizations should be registered with paper work to prove they are legit!!!!! Shame on the shelters for not having them show proper documentations. How sad these dogs have suffered without their whereabouts. Shelters do your homework!!!!

    Some people are just too weak in their characters and/or personas to fulfill the challenges Life has given them. Maybe because of very low self-esteem or other personal problems.

    There is a list of FAKE rescue groups and Kim’s is listed on it – it would be a great help if ALL shelters obtained a copy of the list and posted it predominantly so these fakes are not allowed to take any animal. Documents can always be faked – these people need to be stopped – the animals suffer and they have NO VOICE.

    Another 911 Animal Amber Alert with FAKE animal advocates posing as legitimate 501 4 c advocates for homeless or indigent pet owners. A few weeks ago my families Jack Russell Terrier got oyt of my Dads fenceline. My dad is 82.
    Months back my sister and I were tild about a woman named Cheryl Wade and she iffered as part of het 504 c 1 non profit to elp eirh shots fees neutering and parvo dt shits. She toik pucs of my dogs our dog Jimi The MISSING Jack Russell Terrier and three others we know who have had cheryl wade of helping Hands for hounds provided vet services ec. She placed a collar on our dogs with red bone tags saying helping hands With the phone number and a hhfhh id #number and arranged within the week o have us picked uptaken to vets for chips and other free services. When I got there Cheryl Wade had over 15 other very nice predominently pedigree dogs already there having procedures done. I felt ok about the vet it was a legit vet office located in West Phoenix ( details i will provide to reporters and County Atty General office.)
    Moving on, after numrtous calks and facebook posts and notes sent both cslks to the woman Miss Wade and the vet. None of us were given our registration of iur pes procedures including ud nymbers and chip registration papwrwork.
    Fast forward ti one month ago…
    Our Jimi escapes from my dads and calks o Cheryl start trips to her afdress in Laveen ni answer. No call backs no sympathy or empathy fir our list dog no answer to ss why se has been getting caklks for my dog on his collar phone and chip id info. Dhr had now turned off her business phone so if
    Jimis finders did call she is not available to answer the phone ti help him get to us. The first thing anyone finding an animal would fo is to call numbers on tag or scan for chips right?
    Well it gets better come to find out her 504 c1 for Helping Hands For Hounds is not in good standing wirh the AZ Corp Comm. It never existed .She is However VERY CONNECTED TO CARING HEARTS !for Homeless Pet Owners.with a completely business conflict bof interest mission statement not at all rescue rehoming or emetgency pet pick up
    Having an estalished shelter with accomodations. Oh no its assignmentis financially helping indigent pets owners only with support of provision of protective clothing and gear for dogs blankets umbrellas education (most likely because she is recieving ASPCA $$$ and federal grants $$$$ and did you all catch the “CARING HEARTS ” prefix to her hidden 501 4c non profit ties, IMAGINE THAT! Se claims she gets sponser private financial support obviousky from uninformed philanthropic individuals and companies.

    My Jack Russell is still missing and the legitimate Shelters the Humane Society #1,and their 6 others they partner with using Pet Harbor web as tools partnered with Maricopa County Animal facilities to actually provide search tools for owners with lost pets. Not forgetting the many other fostering helpers and advocates dotted across this large state.
    What I have found in the last 4 weeks would sicken the stomachs of those of us whether professionally or just animal owners who are legitamately involved and naturally empathetic to the growing animal control process and issue in this county would be mortified. Itis stained with fraudulent people at the grass roots level and I have proof of this.
    Please contact me through my ads on Craigslist Pets and Lost and Found Community posts to begin a legal movement and comprehensibly gut out the perpetraitors if the really backward system which is being pkayed and taken advantaged of daily fueling the illegal underground pet theft to rehome and relocate exploiting the animals the owners ,the local state and federal government and those private contributors of both money and volunteer efforts all now at risk of allowing grifters cons and personal property theives to infiltrate and destroy any capabilities of simpkyfinding who and whete these hopeless animals belong. I am trying to begin a criminal widespread investigation of the process I have discovered and found which is in place currently at the grassroots level and is costing the taxpayers millions of dollars in the long run and hiding ehind the non profit no taxes paid blanket as we speak.

      Your rambling makes no sense. I am sorry for your frustration, but in needing someone to blame, you’re blasting someone who does a ton of good for homeless and their pets through the valley. And sadly, not everyone checks for chips, just rehomed. If you’re on CL you’ll notice a ton of found dog, can’t keep, if owner doesn’t answer need gone tonight posts. Once again, very sorry for your loss, but driving out one of the hardest working advocates we have here, and one of very few who advocates for homeless, is not going t o accomplish anything but putting hundreds more in your position than otherwise would be.

        that is Bullshit she is great at what? dogs At the pound the sheters the fosters should be checking forchips . Why she from the get go plotted to steal my dog or she would have immediately given us all the animals info she still has as we speak on all of these animals and she and i see many
        Others need to get your heads out of your ssses and stop judging and playing god Look you are all taking precious pets away from the owners because these pets be real here are supporting the exploitation of all animals ownets have paid to have properly identified after looking at what is left at the shelter is all pitt bull terriers !what is the deal you all cant rehome or make money on those animals si you and their owners and the system allow them slaugtered like pigs . Perhaps if you ( whomever is participating in this hideous holier than thou practice of genecide of the lost dogs in our system) think that your theft or pick and choose practice of rehoming only the most expensive most desirable animals and leave the other breeds there to be gassed are no better than the owner who sentences their own pet to death. YOU NOW BECOME MURDERERS AND THIEVES. How can you say SHE is a hard worker. SMART ILL GIVE YOU SMART TO Figure out a way to maximize on an already broken system by chipping folks animals and keeping her nane on everybodies animals she wants. Remember she aporoached me sister and she effectively stole my jack russell terrier. Made a mockery of the chip process and im certain as been slick many more times. Yeah shes special so are the rest of you who think her work is grand.
        Listen to me now. THIS INFOI MEAN ALL OF IT GOES TODAY TO THE DISTRICT ATTY OFFICE. I WANT MYJACK RUSSELL RETURNED IMMEDIATELY. OTHERWISE HE WILL BE THE POSTER CHILD USED TO STOP THIS INSANE HITLER LIKE GENECIDE OF THE PIT BULL TERRIER ALL OF WHICH YOU ALL DO NOT REHOMEDO NOT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT
        DO NIT THROW STONES SINCE YOU ALL LIVE IN GLASS HOUSES. REHOMING A FRENCH POODLE IS NOT A TOUGH JOB PEOPLE WORKING WITH THE HOMELESS UNWANTED PETS IS THE REAL TEST OF HARD WORK IN THIS ALREADY SICKENING DISPLAY AND DUSGUSTINGLY ABUSED ANIMAL SHELTER SYSTEM.
        BE A REAL HERO AND HELP REALLY FIX IT
        ABD I WANT MY DIG RETURNED ABD IF SOMEINE DIDNIT PLAY GOD WITH ME WELL MY JIMI WOULD BE WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

        I just learned of this woman and all these dumped animals. We are sharing and posting her trying to get the word out. Being a voice for animals . I added your comment to the post in comments . I’m sorry all this happened fo you. ????????????????????????????????????

    • George Smith says:

      ATTENTION ALL:

      “Tam” and her partner Rhonna (who also posts this type of incoherent nonsense about this dog all over the internet), are not of sound mind. Several of us looked up court records for Rhonna, and guess what we found? Arrests for meth, violation of her probation with an arrest last month, etc. We are reading the ramblings of a tweaker here. That should explain the incoherent / borderline-insane ramblings. If you think Tam’s posts are incoherent, be glad you haven’t read those of Rhonna….she sounds like she is hooked to a meth IV bag. Her posts make one of Tam’s posts look intelligent.

    Unfortunately this happens, some scumbags think this is a fast and easy way to make money! They present themselves as animal rescue agents, run ads, actually go and get dogs! What happens at this point they either dump the dogs at other shelters or leave them to die somewhere else! You need to becareful who you support and give money to! As with all things having to do with humans just use a little common sense!

      yes Joanne but this ime in the wake if all the fuss over this article the probkem is s criminal exploitation of animsls ownets snd our extremely corrupt county pound . In looking over the webpages of lost abimals posted by MCACC the info of ehere the dog is oicked up or any pictures of the top ten dog breeds that sell are consistantly not published. Tey refuse to tell you where or when any dog was shipped out or to whom. Its rigged abd the special inetest is in the dogs which almost all of the rescyes bbank on to sell. That keaves no room fir the dogs which need advocacy. Especially if the high dollar pedigrees are pocked and chosen set aside for their future final owners which is an atrosity and kraves thr truly dumped unwsnted abd unloved animals at the poubd when if the schemes to steal owned pedigrees would stop there would be plenty of room fir the larger Less “scottsdale” type dogs to be saved and rehomed. I am frantic my hack russelkhas cancer is 12 and has been in my family forever. How dare they besmearch me by saying there is no time to calk on tags and no time to check chips. This is a frigging joke and a bad dream. Like I said earlier to the smart ass who told me they are too busy to check the chip . Its a felony in Maricopa county to take property which does not belong to you. And it is even uglier when you hide under some far left or far right nazi like genecidal notion that you are this God judge and jury and will provide your top choice or stolen dog du jour up for adoption for 250$ to a Final Family home not pay earned income tax stating you are some exempt angel to be saving all the animals in your world and you know it as well as I do if the call comes in stating Fido french poodle shows up again then its show time once again .God will tell you to steal rehome foster and adopt out that animal and for the best interests of the county pound public profile and the voting public buying into the vicious circle of bull shit youll charge 250$ again and again and again as long as it keeps running away searching for the real owners.
