Animal advocates are in an uproar over allegations that they have recently found out about regarding Ashley Nicole Miller of Pitties and Kitties rescue in California.
Before moving to California, Miller lived in Killeen, Texas where she was arrested twice for animal cruelty in May 2011. While she was in jail, she lost legal custody of her 12 cats and 10 dogs to the local animal shelter. Miller also had to sign a non-possession agreement which states that she cannot own animals again in Killeen, Texas. In 2013, Miller plead no contest to the charges against her.
According to the report taken from Miller’s home, one dog appeared to have its ears glued to its head and there was duct tape and Popsicle sticks used for the dog’s broken leg. Officers also stated they say two dogs with injuries from rubber bands on their testicles in an attempt to home neuter. The officers also witnessed 25-30 cats in the bedroom with urine and feces everywhere. The cat boxes were filthy and overflowing with feces and urine. The dead puppy that Miller claimed died from parvo was in the back of a truck in the driveway. Officers took it with them and that is when the necropsy showed what the puppy really died from and that it was not parvo. In the slideshow, there is also a police report and a post mortem exam from a puppy that Miller claims died from parvo; however, the post mortem report clearly states otherwise. In fact, it says the puppy died from a lacerated liver from blunt force trauma to the puppy’s chest and cranial abdomen and that the puppy did not have parvo. Please see the slideshow to see the photos of this and other evidence.
There is also a YouTube video that is 2.5 hours in length that shows Miller hitting/abusing dogs during one of her training sessions and a YouTube video of a phone call recorded between Miller and another rescuer. There is a report by Cole where she claims that Miller’s training methods are abusive. There is a photo of a dead kitten. There is also a photo of the worms, bloody diarrhea, and Giardia the puppies had that she referred to as the San Francisco Seven. An animal advocate claims that Miller refused to pay the $300 to treat them and instead let them suffer for five long weeks until someone else paid for the medications to treat them.
One animal rescuer who spoke to Miller personally about this before states, “Miller doesn’t just advertise her rescue animals on Craigslist, but she shops for dogs off San Diego Craigslist: She asks people on Facebook to help her flag the ads. She calls backyard breeders selling puppies and tries to get them for less money so she can flip them to make a profit”.
All of these things have gotten Ashley Nicole Miller of Pitties and Kitties to be on many rescues' and shelters' do not rescue or do not adopt to lists.
