These 5 dogs were pulled from Devore in early December & were abandoned at Loma Linda Animal Hospital with a bill in excess of $4000. Karol Neville pulled these dogs for Monica Sarfaty, and went back to Loma Linda on 1/21/15 to get them out after Monica told Loma Linda to send them back to Devore. Dr. Sig at Loma Linda agreed to have Karol sign a promissory note for $2000 and release the dogs to her.

The most worrisome thing is that this person has pulled several dogs from San Bernardino City shelter as well and was accused of killing 10 dogs in Texas. And a well known advocate against the City shelter needs to explain her relationship with this person.

These 5 dogs have been abandoned at Loma Linda by Monica Sarfaty since December 8th! The bill was $4000. Dr. Sig agreed to release them to the puller for $2000 rather then send them back to Devore which is what Monica said to do. She said "maybe they'll get adopted again". She has pulled 19 dogs from SBC and some were left at General, not sure how many though. She said she was getting the rest of them out of General on Thursday and Friday. She is currently DNA from San Bernardino city shelter. I believe some sort of fundraiser will be set up to help Karol recoup the costs she is having to pay for these five dogs a banded at Loma Linda. This is why it is important for us to speak out if we know something like this is happening.

MORE PULLED DEVORE DOGS ABANDONED BY ACTIVIST/RESCUER
Pledges, donations, are collected while an animal is still in the shelter. Maybe a 'puller' will come along and take the pet out when these pledges are waved in front of them. And if one does, oh how they celebrate "RESCUED". But what is the reality behind it? This is but one, there are others, and it is happening all too often.

FORMER DEVORE DOGS IN NEED OF RE-RESCUE reads the facebook posting. You can't even count the responses in the comments and cross posts. And those pledges came too. Then the announcement that 'Hancock' had been rescued or rather pulled from Devore. Great news you think. Not the end of story.

Hancock was abandoned at Loma Linda Veterinary Clinic by the puller/rescuer/activist with a $4000 vet bill and four other dogs also abandoned there. They were abandoned December 8th and as of yesterday, they are still there. But the begging for pledges, once again, has already started.

The clinic agreed to release the dogs to the 'puller' for $2000 but the 'rescuer' said to send them back to Devore stating "maybe they'll get adopted again". Does this sound a little scammie to you? Revolving dogs, get money, pull, abandon, get money again. Not the first time and this blog has written about this

 Monica is being investigated by the local sheriff in Comal County, Bulverde, TX. near San Antonio.  She has pulled dogs from many different kill shelters or has had dogs pulled for her.  Some of the shelters include ACS in San Antonio, Brownsville, Longview and others.  While in her care she has taken healthy dogs to her original vet "Country Hills Vet Clinic."  Soon after her brother brings in the dogs already deceased explaining a different excuse every time.  Necropsy results show horrific abuse in many different ways I don't even want to mention here.  In total up to June 2012 Country Hills Vet took 8 deceased dogs from the brother within 14 months.  An investigation was started either at that time or well before, I have heard as far back as 4 years ago. 

Monica has had a career as a regional retail manager for awhile most recently with Victoria Secret and was traveling a lot for work.  She has the means to vet her own dogs and has also donated to many different rescues and shelters.  Her Facebook page when it was up was always posted with "Causes" for animal abuse petitions and other posts advocating to help shelter animals etc.  She has managed to somewhat cover up a dark side to her family situation and if not committing these crimes herself is just as guilty for bringing the animals into her home knowing they are in danger from her brother who I hear is mentally challenged.  Monica is 50 years old from Lima, Peru, lives in Bulverde, TX. not far from San Antonio.  Do not adopt, let transport, let pull, let anything. 

PLEASE share with your local shelters, rescues, pet stores and the many small shelters across Texas and nearby states if you can.  I cannot express enough, the type of abuse these dogs are said to have gone through is horrific.  Please be sure to check all transport volunteers, pull volunteers if you are not familiar with their past or who they have worked with.  Monica has a liking for Bassets, Basset mixes, Border Collies but has pulled others as well that turned up killed.  Attached are a news story recently reported along with a post from a Yahoo group dated back to June 2012 warning of her and dogs.  Contact the Detective Doug Phillips, Comal County Sheriff if you have any information to offer on this investigation, 830-620-3417
