WELD COUNTY, Colo. - An accused animal hoarder from California was arrested in Colorado Monday on animal cruelty charges.
Someone reported seeing two dogs running loose, one of which appeared very emaciated, near Kimi Peck's home, according to the Weld County Sheriff's Office.
Peck has been investigated for similar charges in several other jurisdictions, including California and Wyoming.
Peck was booked into the Weld County North Jail complex and currently has a $3,000 bond.
Last week, animal control officers found Peck had 57 dogs in a house trailer she was pulling with a truck, according to Bob Fecht, CEO of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter in Wyoming.
The shelter had received a call from someone who recognized Peck's vehicle from the "Where on earth is animal hoarder Kimi Peck" Facebook page.
Peck agreed to surrender 53 dogs to authorities, shelter officials said. She kept four dogs with her.
Animal control officers cited Peck for not having proof of rabies vaccinations for her dogs when she surrendered her dogs, Fecht said.
Animal activists from California began calling 7NEWS in April, warning that Peck had left the West Coast because "she had nowhere else to go" and that they believed she had moved to Weld County in Colorado.
Peck was evicted from at least two different homes in California. Neighbors complained about multiple dead dogs found in a pool on a property owned and abandoned by Peck.
