Kimi Peck and Susan Marlowe work very hard in making the public believe they are reputable rescuers operating a legitimate ‘sanctuary’. They do this because they count on donations and grants to pay all bills, according to their tax returns, relating to Ms. Peck’s expenses in Kern County (including her personal mortgage). They refer to themselves as ‘The Dog Angels Sanctuary’ aka ‘The Dog Angels’ aka ‘Chihuahua Rescue’ aka ‘Chihuahua Rescue LA’ aka ‘’…and the list goes on and on and on…

THESE ARE ALL THE SAME PLACE JUST USING DIFFERENT NAMES . These people are continuing to "morph" their rescue name in an apparent attempt to distance themselves from their documented past charges and convictions in Los Angeles’ criminal courts under Kimi Peck and Kimi Peck’s "Chihuahua Rescue". (see citations in citation section of this website) Before donating to any rescue please do your homework. 1. Please visit before donating. We cannot stress this enough. Disreputable rescues will invite you to their facility to make you believe that they have nothing to hide but in truth trying to get in would be very difficult. Often these places only invite people in when they have a scheduled inspection that they spend many days, even weeks, preparing for, including moving animals from site. A compelling website does not insure a healthy facility. It is only a website. If the website has no documentation to back up their words, that’s a red flag. This website, for example, has documentation obtained from the Courts, pictures and official documentation to back up our FACTS. 2. Be sure that the 501c3 also has the necessary license to operate . NO EXCUSES 3. Please visit to see if the operators are listed. It’s very easy to check this. 4. Please search the internet for information regarding the rescue you are considering donating to. Often "animal hoarders" pose as rescuers.Having a 501c3 does not rule this possibility out. It’s very easy to obtain a 501(c)3 non-profit status (just ask Susan Marlowe, CPA, she was able to obtain one for a fugitive) 5. Beware of "rescuers" that complain that they are victims and they don’t know why people are trying to destroy them. This is a huge red flag. Neighbors, former volunteers and city officials that address the animals poor living conditions are harrassed in an attempt to shift the focus from the horrible conditions the animals are forced to live in. 6. Research how often the rescue you are considering donating to has relocated and why they have relocated. This is often a sign of a problem. 7. Find out how many addresses and rescue names a group operates under. If it looks like a shell game it probably is. Donating to a rescue that does not properly care for their animals only continues the suffering of animals in their care.
