The Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County, which seized 203 total animals from the Kinsman property, can be found at

"The following day, Amy from PAWS and Kris and Deb from Marilyn's Voice came in and offered their help - and were they a BIG help, and so was Marilyn," said Barbara Busko, the president of the AWLTC. "Subsequently Shana and Tisha from For the Love of Pits, came in and began the process of evaluating, taking photos and took dogs into their rescue and found other rescues to help.

"Through the collective efforts of so many people, including you, that we were able to accomplish so much."

I got a dog from Humane Sanctuary in Kinsman in February, 2009. It was a bitter, bitter cold day and those poor dogs had no real shelter. They were chained even inside the tiny enclosures in which they were held. It was clear that they never had a chance to run or get had adequate exercise, much less food or medical attention. My dog had heart worm, hook worm, tape worm, pin worms and ear infections. It cost me a lot just to get him to average health. He is a dear, however, my Larry. I love him and while not a perfect gentleman (last week he ate 14 corn muffins off a counter and hid eight more all over the house), he is a good dog and (I think) a grateful one. Thanks to all who sheltered or gave homes to these poor pups. They had a very difficult life before you came along
