Shocked Jan 27, 2022
I have toured this provider's facility, but have not used its services

When I was asked to meet the provider to take a tour of her home for possible care pf my son she asked me to meet her at this other property she owns. It was located on a very small fenced in MUDDY field next to a road. She said they are at this ground alot and hopes that I don't mind that she brings the kids she watches down here to help with the animal care. I immediately was shocked she would want my son to help with her barn chores plus he is a minor and never been around large horses, donkeys and goats. It was very crowed and small for all those animals and no place for kids to be at or play, especially with the road. We then went to her house and that was another surprise with 6 large dogs and I saw at least 5 cats. One that was sleeping on her kitchen table. The house smelled like cat pee and is over crowded and small. There is no play room or place to play outside that I could see but alot of junk laying around and dog poop. She didn't even ask me if my son had special needs or allergic to pets. She just stated talking about payments and we could work something out if her fees were to high. I didn't feel like this was a safe or clean environment for my child and looking elsewhere for child care.

I have toured this provider's facility, but have not used its services

With not many care providers in the Area I wanted to send my children somewhere I felt was safe and provide the needs for them when I was at work. I was mortified when I 1st arrived! As soon as I walked in through the gate I noticed a dog tie out with poop on the cement. Clutter everywhere and very unkept with high grass. We walked up the steps to knock on the door and there was hardly any rom on the front porch. Inside the house it was just as cluttered with hair balls everywhere. The Dining room table and counters was filled with to the max with all types clutter as well with cats laying on the table and jumping up from time to time when placed back on the ground. The house was not hot or cold in temperature and you could smell cat boxes that probably needed emptied. The one dog was really loud and barking and it was hard to talk over this. The living room was small with a average size TV but I noticed there where no toys to play with and when asked where the play room was I never got a answer. I was allowed to use the restroom to wash my hands after petting all the cats and dogs. This was a very tight space and mold on the ceiling probably from poor ventilation. I was told that if they start to watch my kids to please buy something for them to sit on like a yoga mat for watching the cartoons. She did inform me that from time to time she runs errands and leaves the kids with her older daughter or husband and hoped that would be ok. I also noticed she spent alot of time paying attention to her phone rather than listening to my expectations and what I wanted in a sitter. When it was time to leave I thanked them and tripped on the way to my car from junk laying outside. I wont be back and neither will my kids.

This provider has an overwhelming number of animals indoors which she hides at her relative's property when the state inspectors are around. The home smells of cat urine (10+ cats inside) which she tries to cover up with tart warmers. There is a brown dog (one of 4 inside) in the home that is food aggressive and it jumps all over people. She allows the animals to sit on the furniture but children must sit on a mat on the floor. She often leaves the children with her husband or her children while she leaves to conduct other business. Also, she accepts a parent's EBT card as payment for unpaid subsidy money. This woman should be shut down but she never gets caught because she is friends with child care providers in the area that phone her to tell her when the inspectors are around so she can hide the animals.
