DO NOT USE THIS DOG BOARDER! Aside from my own personal experience with her, (she stole my precious dog who is part of a bonded pair of love birds) she admitted to the Norwalk Sheriff that not only does she have no business licence to operate this dog boarding "business" from her home, but they DON'T EVEN HAVE A KENNEL LICENCE! AND in her area people are legally allowed to own 2 dogs, but you can see in her" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">, and other places she solicites her illegal boarding operation that she already owns at least 2 dogs (plus lots of cats) so she's already legally maxed out.

Okay, this is my experience with her: We used her as a paid boarder for two different rescue dogs (we do rescue) and although they got worms, it wasn't a bad experience. But then I had a situation where I needed a foster for our bonded pair of poodle mixes, she offered to foster them on what she said had to be a very temporary because she needs the space for paid boarders she said. After one week there her senior female attacked my male poodle (her dog was the agressor and did not get hurt but my dog had deep puncture wounds from a bit on his neck that needed stitches but he aslo had a huge suspicious bump on his head that according to the vet who had to xray it because it was so bad, did not appear to be an injury typical of a dog fight, and asked us if we knew how the fight was broken up.

He suspected, therefore so do we, that Joni hit him in the head to stop the fight. Guess what else - I asked her if because of this expense and having to separate the bonded pair and having to come with another place for him to go cuz she said he couldn't come back there, when I aske dher if she would waive the $45.00 that I still owed her for boarding she flipped her lid. She even threatened me when I said if she didn't give me back the dog when we showed up that she would sick some "punks" that she knows on us who jump and rob people. That was a nice touch, so I had all this in black and white to show the police when they got there so they knew what kind of person we are all dealing with.

That threat was the reason we called the police to meet us there while we tried to get the dog back, just to keep the peace and possibly make a report if we couldn't get the dog back. Joni Walker and her mother both told police a crazy story that Lady got lost while was on vacation. In Hunington Beach. I hope for Lady's sake she is lying. Anyway, that's what my experience was with them. This illegal operation needs to be shut down. They stole my dog because even though they had her for only 3 weeks and she's part of a bonded pair, Joni said her mother was getting attached to her, so they asked to adopt her.

I couldn't approve them because when we were there to pick up our injured male after the dog fight she spanked her senior female right in front of us. I wish I would have taken Lady too that day, but I had no other place for her to go, and unlike these people we play by the rules, I don't run a business out of my home. All I do is volunteer and I have a network of fosters I use, but we didn't have a foster and we're only allowed to own 3 dogs in our area, that's why we needed a foster for these two dogs. Three weeks later I had a home for Lady and Lucky (the bonded pair) that's why I wanted to pick her up, and that's when they ruined their chances of having a wonderful home together, by stealing my her.

There is nothing I can do because they claimed to have lost her and since posting this on Facebook have been contacted by a few other people who said she's done the same thing to them.  They were already over their legal limit before stealing my dog so I don't know whey they go around stealing dogs when people don't want to adopt to them, unless they are selling them.  Whatever they're doing, whatever the reason, beware of this illegal dog boarding operation, they might steal your dog too.

That rebuttle was ALL lies written by Joni, the very person who STOLE OUR DOG!

AUTHOR: Kimberly - ()

I’m sad to say Joni is lying and her dog is the one that was aggressive and I have pictures to prove it, and video of Lucky’s injuries sustained in her care, by her aggressive senior female (that rebuttal from her is nothing but lies, just ALL lies) again, trying (poorly) to cover her butt after being caught red handed trying to do continue doing business under another name (Mac’s Dog House Boarding – see pix below) which of course, like Walker Dog Hotel, has no business license or kennel license, and even after being told by authorities to cease and desist, is still trying to get her hands on more dogs, even going under fake Facebook profiles trying to get more dogs (as well as using those profiles to pretend they are supporters of hers, lol)   

Please see our Facebook past about this containing pictures of both the missing dog and of Joni Walker. A reward is offered for the safe return of Lady, which is all we care about, the safe return of the dog. We are very worried about her, please contact us if you’ve seen Lady. What Joni is trying to do here with these crazy lies about one of the dogs being aggressive (the Facebook post also contains pix of our injured dog who was bitten by her dog, who by the way sustained NO injuries) even lies about me being a mental case, and the whopper of a lie that anyone threatened her mom, but it surprising to me at all. In fact every time I’ve exposed a bad foster or rescuer they throw out lies about me in an effort to discredit me, but that’s okay, because they get caught up in their lies so it never works. Joni’s lies are also an effort to prove she was justified in stealing our dog, but really, even if any of it were true, which it isn’t’, but even if it were, how the heck would that justify stealing the dog she was supposed to be boarding for us? Yes exactly, IT DOESN’T. No matter what she says, what she did was not only wrong, it’s illegal, and so is her “boarding business”. She states on her Facebook she’s going back to school now, that she’s closing the doors to the dog boarding business, but it’s another lie. She’s still doing it, see proof in the photos below. I have proof that everything I’m saying is true. Where is her proof? She doesn’t have any, because it’s all lies. Like we’d really threaten anyone, we don’t need threats, we had the police officer standing right there, and he was totally on our side and launched an investigation into her fraudulent business which is why she’s not able to continue doing business, but she’s been caught trying do business under another name, she plays by no rules except her own, doing nothing the legal way. I on the other hand am doing everything the legal way, and it’s working great, because I’m the one telling the truth, she’s the one lying and has been caught publicly in many, many lies so far.


Again the response you see from Joni up there is just a poor effort on her part to discredit me. She is upset, and desperately trying to make it look like I’m in the wrong somehow, and that she might actually be justified in stealing a dog from me. After all, I’m sure Joni’s thinking she’s never gotten in this much trouble over stealing a dog from someone (and YES she’s done it before, again see the Facebook post, where others say she stole their dog too) and is clearly upset because even though she’s been working hard lying her a*s off about everything, none of it is working. She’s still in trouble and I’m still going after her for my dog. Nothing Joni can make up about me could even come close to justifying what she’s done to our dog, but that doesn’t stop her from trying. By the way, she’s really I hot water now, now I’m going back to authorities to report her fake cop profile for posing as an officer of the law, and instructing me to back off, speaking as an officer of Tustin PD. This is serious trouble she’s in now. I’ll let you all know how it works out. Don’t be surprised to hear she’s in jail, where she belongs. The way she’s going it won’t be long, she’s not very smart about any of this and her tracks and her lies and fake profiles are easy to trace. All these lies and illegal behavior is only getting her in more hot water but I think she can't help herself, she's on drugs and we all know how drugs cloud a person judgement. I hope she get's help for her problem after all this, I really do, and that she'll stop trying to "board" dogs so she can claim she's lost them, then sell them, which is exactly what she's doing. Stealing and "flipping" dogs. Stop trying to make a living doing this Joni, go get a job crack head.

Sad person with some mental issues

AUTHOR: Joni - ()

Nothing of what has been stated by Kimberly Glasnapp is true. She brought an aggressive dog to my house begging me to let it stay with me for a few days because her Dad had threatened to call the animall control to pick it up along with a few others that are not suppose to be there. I told her that I could tell right away that it would not work out because her dog "Lucky" was too aggressive and kept growling at theother dogs and even nipped at her with me sitting there. She begged me to find a home for the other dog" lady" she even said if I wanted to adopt her it woud just take me signing the adoption papers and she would be mine. I did not want to keep "Lady" but I did agree to put the word out that Lady was available for adoption. While my mother had Lady out with her the dog got out of the car and ran , we searched every where and put up flyers in hopes of finding her. We never heard anything until about 2 weeks afterwards when I got word that Bambi's Hope Rescue (Kimberly Glasnapp) had been contacted and had gotten "Lady" back. Yet she still continues to harrass me and my family she has even gone so far as to threaten my 75 year old mother with "an butt kicking she would never forget". These are very unstable people and should be steared clear of at all cost. I currently have a restraining order against her and her daughter. The officer that is in charge of this case got the cost for the restraining order waived because in his opinion Kimberly Glasnapp is a mentally unstable person with issues and coud be a danger to me and my mother.
