Peck a victim or a nutcase? You decide? Read some of the quotes to media outlets over the years made by Kimi Peck regarding the people out to ‘get’ her: ***September 2003, LETTER TO BURBANK OFFICIALS: Burbank County convicted Peck of operating illegal kennels and unsanitary conditions, among many other convictions. Instead of cleaning up, Peck had her then attorney demand with threats that Kern County stop harassing Kimi Peck. Here’s a quote from the letter (though Burbank, as everybody knows, legally forced Peck out in 2005 and Peck is now on Los Angeles Do Not Adopt to list): March 2003: "I am demanding that this harassment end and that the City work with us to make Chihuahua Rescue the best facility possible for the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs." Shannon Keith in 2003 (TWO YEARS LATER – PECK WAS LEGALLY FORCED OUT OF BURBANK DUE TO HER OWN NEGLIGENCE) ***May 2005, LA TIMES: Peck claims she’s the victim of a smear campaign launched by a homeless former volunteer who’s angry that Peck wouldn’t let her sleep at the shelter. She said she’s going to relocate the shelter — possibly to Northern California or Arizona, and file a lawsuit. January 2007: Burbank Leader – two articles – first one called in by Kimi Peck herself bragging about a lawsuit she filed against ten former volunteers – a lawsuit that was dismissed before all defendants were even served – why was it dismissed? Kimi Peck’s own attorney investigated Peck’s hoarding history and realized she’s dealing with a nutcase: ‘Shelter files suit against volunteers Director of Chihuahua Rescue opens an action claiming slander and defamation against 10 former unpaid workers. February 21, 2007|By Chris Wiebe BURBANK — The director of a Chihuahua rescue shelter, which operated out of Burbank for more than four years, has filed a 10-party lawsuit against some of her former volunteers, accusing them of a smear campaign that tarnished her business reputation. Kimi Peck, director of Chihuahua Rescue — which relocated to Tehachapi after a court order forced the shelter out of Burbank — contends in her lawsuit that former volunteers committed slander and defamation against her when they told police in 2005 that Peck kept Chihuahuas in unsafe and squalid conditions. The volunteers also alleged that Peck was hoarding dogs rather than finding them new homes. After Burbank Police and animal control officials investigated, Peck was charged with having insufficient food and water for her animals, failing to maintain sanitary and safe conditions and keeping insufficient records for her animals. She pleaded no contest to the latter charge in June 2005 and the other two were set aside. B y October 2005, she had cleared out of her Burbank facility, moving to Tehachapi, where she says her rescue operation has suffered as a result of the complaints of the volunteers. "It’s been very painful, very hard," she said "And I can handle everything, but it has affected the dogs, and that hurts me." But attorney Larry Rudd, who represents the 10 defendants named in the suit, said that Peck has no evidence of defamation and slander and that the law protects the rights of people to make critical statements to authorities about bad business practices. "This is an attempt to harass people who only sought the best interest of the animals," he said. "These are people who left because of despicable conditions." Volunteers reported seeing dogs that were seldom released from their cages, living in their own feces, he said. A veterinarian who leased a space next door to Chihuahua Rescue on Moss Street terminated his portion of the lease, saying he could no longer carry on his practice so near to the shelter’s conditions, Rudd added. "Kimi Peck, in keeping with her prior actions, files suits against anyone who disagrees with her, anyone who comments about her poor care and treatment of animals," he said. Rudd is filing a motion disputing Peck’s complaint as a Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation suit, which is a litigation strategy intended to stifle or intimidate the critics of the plaintiff. He will also pursue Peck for his attorney’s fees and may pursue her attorney on grounds of malicious prosecution. "This is just an absurd suit and it should never have been brought," he said. Peck grabbed headlines in 2003, when she saved 170 Chihuahuas from being euthanized after Los Angeles County animal control officials confiscated the dogs from breeder Emma Harter. Harter was subsequently convicted of animal abuse for housing 235 Chihuahuas in fetid, unsanitary conditions. But two years later, Peck found herself the target of accusations from volunteers at her own shelter, which ultimately drove her from Burbank. ****NEXT ARTICLE IN SAME PAPER WHEN HER ATTORNEY DISMISSES CASE…CHECK OUT DATE: Briefly In The News February 24, 2007 Activist dismisses defamation suit The attorney representing an animal-rights activist who once ran a rescue shelter in Burbank dropped her 10-party defamation lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday. The lawsuit brought by Kimi Peck, director of Chihuahua Rescue — which she relocated to Tehachapi after a court order forced her to close the Burbank shelter — alleged that some of her former volunteers had launched a smear campaign that has damaged her business reputation. Attorney Larry Rudd, who represented the 10 defendants named in the suit, said that he turned away attempts from Peck’s attorney, Theresa Macellaro, to negotiate a settlement and then learned shortly thereafter that the case had been dropped. "This was just another attempt to harass people by Kimi Peck," Rudd said. "I don’t know what her next step will be, but my guess is that she will be trying to find another way to file a suit or do something — because this is just a person who does not take no for an answer and just tries to abuse the system." Peck grabbed headlines in 2003 when she saved 170 Chihuahuas from being euthanized after Los Angeles County animal control officials confiscated the dogs from breeder Emma Harter. Harter was subsequently convicted of animal abuse for housing 235 Chihuahuas in unsanitary conditions.
