Clean Bread and Cheese Creek - The devotion and commitment from this group is unbelievable. After seeing the devotion and effort made by this group made me get involved. I now volunteer at all of their clean ups and help make a difference.

I do not know their ages, Often times a rescue only has a guess of age. So I will only state the number of dogs. If you read up on my first and second post you will find the number of dogs. I do agree with responsible ownership. I encourage it on my Pit Bull website. I am very sorry your son was attacked. However don't hold all owners responsible for an irresponsible owner. That owner should have been held accountable. Not the law abiding tax paying citizens.
Let me be very clear there was no dogs in a shed. The dogs were hiding behind the shed scared from the fire.

@ Tony I gave up trying to explain it to you. I posted the numbers above and you still go and change them to your own made up numbers. I already see no matter what I say you will not be happy. You will try and twist my words. I thought your name was familiar. I was also a part of the group that stood to fight against the BSL case here in Baltimore. I feel better talking to my wall. No response is better then a twisted response. Your out for vengeance its ok I understand. However do believe I will be there fighting against the ridiculous laws I seen you stand behind when it comes to how I can and can't own a animal.

After more looking into laws in Baltimore county there is no limit on the amount of cats you can have as long as it is not a public nuisance. On the kennel license, "If a private kennel license is permitted, the owner might keep as many as 10 dogs, not counting puppies younger than 4 months, according to zoning regulations." She did have a few puppies. So she was with in the law just as I said.
Thanks for the information in quotes from Councilman Sam Moxley

What you are missing Tom is people are making accusations that she is a hoarder. It just so happens that I can read between the branches when someone is beating around the bush. When people start making comments about the amount of animals she had in her residents. When they have the law as it states on the county website and you are still not happy with the answers, I know what you are getting at.
To be honest the amount of animals she has is none of any bodys business except Mary and the county. Unless you want to adopt one what is the point of asking over and over. It was on the news, animal control was on the scene, Tons of inspectors was there. If she was in the wrong she would of been fined and that would also be on the news for you to make comments about.

@Tom I do not want to make a false claim on the amount of animals she is allowed to have on her property. As I stated I did not see her paperwork. The only people that can state the exact of animals she can have is Mary her self and Baltimore County code enforcement. That is why I said I could not comment on the amount of animals she can have. I do know she was with in the law. I know Mary as I spoke with her a few times, I do not know her personally. She is neighbors of very good friends of mine.
@ Tony You can call but I do not know if they will give you a answer unless you have the size of the property. Let me know what you find out as I do not know everything. I only stated what I knew as facts. As for Channel 13 yes they came out and was questioning about animal hoarding. They set it strait that she was a rescue and linked to her website on petfinder.com
Here is the WJZ video: http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2011/03/28/house-fire-kills-dozens-of-animals/
Their first questions on the scene today was we are investigating a case of animal hoarding.

To be honest I have no idea the amount of animals she is allowed to keep. I did not see her paperwork. But as she deals with BARCS , the ASPCA, and I believe the Baltimore County Animal Control she was well with in her means as they do check up on people who they release animals to. On a second thought The fire dept. removed the animals so she would have been fined if she was over the limit. Channel 13 came out today to investigate a case of animal hoarding today but they quickly turned their story around on the 6 O' clock news. They told the truth on their story today. Most people have no idea that she is a legitimate animal rescue. She operated by the law. No Neighbor ever complained about her. We all love Mary and what she does.
I can tell you that her yard was always clean and there was no oder, so she kept up very with the animals. She also had volunteers that came by to help as well. The reason that no attempt was made to save the animals on her behalf is she was not home.

There are no sprinkler requirements that go along with any kennel license. By law with out a kennel license you are allowed up to three dogs in Baltimore County. With a kennel license the amount of dogs you can have is regulated by the amount of land you have. There is no set amount with a kennel license. They have to inspect your land as well. Also when you agree to a kennel license you agree to them coming out to check your property at anytime they wish.
To be completely honest, I did not even see the firemen make a effort to go around to the back of the house to save any animals. However I understand first priority of the fire dept. is to save human lives and gain control of the fire.

On a side note this News Article should be renamed, as it was not at least a dozen dogs killed. It was 9 dogs and 13 cats that did not make it out.

If you have a kennel licence you are ok. It depends on the amount of property as to how many dogs you can keep in one residence. All of the animals was well taken care of. Mary is a very nice woman. She does a good job at saving animals.
To try and start calling her names like animal hoarder at a time when she needs the most help is very heartless. Get the facts before you start pointing fingers. As running a Ferret and Reptile Rescue my self. it is not the easiest job in the world.
If people wasn't so irresponsible with their animals, people like Mary would not have to save so many animals. I think she was well with in her means to keep the amount of animals she had. There was 14 total cats and 13 total dogs. There is places with ten times more animals then that and they plan to keep them all. If you call Mary a hoarder you also call the ASPCA and Barks hoarders as well.
Thank you Mary for the great job you do. This world needs more people like you.
