My name is Kenya Banks. I'm 17 years old and I live in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania.
I thought your name rang a bell..... I'm assuming Mike is the one holding Nina?

If you have worked with or recognize any of the names listed
below, please send all of the information you have regarding the
animals involved and what transpired to [email protected]
The information is being compiled as part of an investigation
of their activities. You will not be blamed for anything. They have
been acquiring animals of many species and breeds for the last
several years. They do not always claim to be a rescue. These are
not their only "identities" but are ones we can prove.
Please let us know if you have pulled, transported, or
surrendered any animal for or to them, or if you know of anyone else
who has done so, or have any information about animals they have
acquired or tried to acquire.
Please let us know if you believe you have run across any
other identities used by them. They operate in the area in and
around Blair County, PA, and try to get dogs transported to that area
for them. They try to acquire dogs and other animals from PA and
most of the surrounding states, but have even tried to pull from as
far away as Georgia. They surf the shelter sites for out of time
dogs and other message boards for owner surrenders. They have
various stories about who they are and who the dogs are for.
These are the links to 2 dogs she rescued then turned around
and sold. We have no idea what happened to them or where they are.
