    I haven’t been involved with Love To Live/Gard/, Joy Bohannon or Kim Janel for years now but they haven’t changed their spots. I use to think that Kim Janel was just sucked in and unaware but now I’m not so sure. When she saw that I liked a “Gard Defense Exposed” page on facebook she began posting multiple lies on facebook. The one that cracked me up the most was in 2018 a friend of mine had a local dog surrendered to her. The poor thing was on deaths bed. She needed to go out of town on a family emergency and asked Kim Janel for help, which she did. She was able to get the dog to a vet and even pay for some of the costs. My friend felt blessed that Kim was their to help. We decided to start a GoFundMe page to raise money to reimburse Kim Janel. Which we did. She has now posted lies on facebook that a sick dog was dropped off on her doorstep by a rescue that wouldn’t take responsibility, that she was there to do what the rescue wouldn’t and she raised money…blah blah blah!!! She is bad mouthing a REPUTABLE RESCUE, it’s CEO and me with nothing more than LIES!!!. She likes to tell everyone what a hero she is. Constantly patting herself on the back while she is doing illegal dog adoption events on her front lawn. Her standard response is that she helps poor dogs no matter how they come into this world. Its one thing to help dogs, it’s another to support the person that is abusing them, breeding them and finance the conditions that live in. SHAME ON YOU KIM JANEL.
