One person who can hardly seem to catch a break from the parenting police is none other than Bravolebrity Kim Zolciak — though this time, it's the dog parenting police who came after her and even called Lifeline Animal Project at Fulton County Animal Services.
The mother-of-six is understandably fuming after an anonymous person called Animal Control on the Real Housewives of Atlanta and Don't Be Tardy star — and took to Snapchat to express her disgust and explain that she will no longer post about her furry friends on social media.
This is my family. Minus a few kids. This is not only my TV family but it is a family that has welcomed me into their hearts. They give me tons of stuff. They take me on family vacations and gift me with things so great I can't even emotionally handle it. They don't post pictures of cute puppies for likes they have plenty of cute kids for that. For years I've watched people make nasty comments about their children that are too young to defend themselves. And we've all grown tough skin because that's just one of the negatives that comes with being in the spotlight and sharing your life on television. Today was especially upsetting because a stranger, a lurker a hater a judger and perhaps even a "fan" thought they should call animal services on my family because they felt that by viewing a post on snapchat that their animals were being mistreated. Animal services was not there long after seeing the impeccable conditions that the dogs were in. Kim has become an advocate for #animalrescue and #adoptdontshop she has brought awareness to millions of people. I witness their pure true hearts on a daily basis. After their son was bitten by a dog and almost lost his sight they immediately called on experts to re introduce animals into his life. He loves dogs. They were not left scorned by what an animal did. They continued with their rescue efforts. Even while on vacation they made 2 stray sick dogs part of their family and making sure they were cared for long after we left. They have not instagramed their balance sheet of good deeds bc they don't need to. But I'm glad to air that laundry. Personally they've donated dozens of crates hundreds of pounds of dog food and thousands of dollars to dogs they've never even met. Recently 3 very sick dogs needed a foster and they stepped up even creating an IG page just for them. Those 3 pups have experienced more love and attention that most of us will get in a lifetime. It's shameful that someone who thinks they know something or maybe someone just wants to throw hate. I hope you realize that you have a great impact on furthering animal rescue. After all that's what you wanted right? I don't know what Kim will do with her social
“Apparently somebody thought it would be really cute to call the animal control center on my dogs today and say that they were not being taken care of. I am utterly f--king disgusted and appalled by the person that did this,” Kim explained.
She also took to Instagram to share comments some were making in the Facebook group Bravo Juice, where someone accused her of keeping her dogs locked up in her garage. Of course, the Dancing With the Stars alum had choice words about the allegation.
"Well here is one of the jealous idiots!! Her account needs to be reported please help!! Wait til you see my next post! #ItsRescuesSweetheart #BoredMuch #NeedsAJob," she captioned the screenshot, before sharing the below post, where she wrote, "Another gem!! She needs to be reported as well!! These people are sick."
Kim previously revealed that she was hoping to get her children used to animals again after her four-year-old son, Kash, was hospitalized earlier this year after being attacked by a dog.
😍 Kroy and I felt it was super important to continue to encourage Kash to be around animals. Kash is an absolute animal lover and I didnt/don't want him to fear animals after all he has been through. (The 2nd day he was in the hospital their was a service dog visiting all the children and I asked Kash if he wanted to see the dog, "He screeched Yes" and was all snuggled up to the dog in less than a minute as if nothing ever happened!) Anyhow I wanted to thank @bosleys.place for bringing all your precious sweet (adoptable) puppies over and sharing them with us. 😍😍
