Here are two e-mails written by former animal control head, Lt. Speirs, back in 2005, in regards to Kimi Peck’s closure. As you can see, her closure was due to her own negligence. We removed the e-mail addresses because the people fear retribution by animal hoarder Kimi Peck. Lt. Speirs admitted animal hoarder Kimi Peck was not only negligent – she also had over 350 animals when they raided her facility. KIMI PECK IS NOT AND HAS NOT BEEN IN BURBANK SINCE 2005!

Permit me to provide you the facts as they pertain to your questions: 1. The Burbank Animal Shelter submitted 11 criminal violations for filing consideration in May of 2005 – three months ago. A plea agreement (which we are not part of) was reached and she plead out, agreed to cease her operations, and reduce the numbers of animals she had until they were all gone. She was held accountable in a court of law. 2. We can not deny her right to own an animal and I don’t think any court in the land can take that right away from her. 3. Yes I am aware that Ms. Peck was not in court as I was there. Ms. Peck was represented by her attorney which is her constitutional right. 4. She is down to 98 animals from the high of 350 that she had on the facility in May. They were adopted out or given to other rescues. 5. The Burbank Animal Shelter is the agency that took the action – we care. 6. I estimate that within 3 weeks she will be totally out of business and all the animals gone.
