After seeing an ad on craigslist for kennel help, I emailed to apply. I was hired the next day. My responsibility was to take care of Rhodesian Ridge back puppies and their mothers and a dozen adult dogs running around the property for Denise Frisco.
Denise is a well traveled horse and dog breeder. Look her up. She gave me a paperwork of my responsibilities and pay. It stated, in a nutshell, that I was to be paid $100 per week for eight weeks and $1000 bonus and the end of the eight weeks per litter if none of the puppies died.
Well, my first day, nine puppies were born. I spent the entire day, actually sixteen hours straight, helping Vasi with her litter in a cramped shed infested with flies and mosquitos. There were dogs everywhere that had been fighting and had open wounds surrounding the area where I was working.
Only being trained for about an hour, I felt that she should've helped more. After I left to go home, I called her to ask about the puppies. I asked her if any of the puppies die while I'm not there, do I get penalized on my bonus. She insured me that I wouldn't. Well, that night one puppy died in her care. The next day, another puppy died while in her care. She insured meagain that it would not affect my bonus.
She often went out of town and it was my job to take care of the dogs. She not only had Vasi bearing pups, but Sami and two more females were pregnant. She was cranking out litter after litter. She told me that she has been doing this for eight years and puppies die all the time. I began to wonder about my pay, and her judgement with the welfare of her dogs. But it was her children that were taking the brunt of it all. They were truly in her way of success.
Often when she went out of town, she would not pay me and made no effort to try. I bank with Wells Fargo, Chase, and I have Pay Pal She not only made no effort, she had no apologies.
Denise is a very angry woman who cussed often right in front of her two little boys. Those poor kids were in her way and she totally neglected them on so many levels leaving her two month old infant crying for hours telling me that he's fine. I offered to stay late if she would just pick him up and comfort him or feed him, but she told me to just keep working. We were removing dew claws, vaccinating/worming, and micro chipping.
I did report her to CPS, by the way. It was easy finding witnesses to back up my story because she was so neglectful in so many situations way before I was hired.
About six weeks into the first two litters, I asked her about the bonus. She said that I will not get a bonus because two dogs died! I reminded her that that was not our agreement. She said that if she does not make money, I do not get a bonus! She said we are in this 'collectively'. I quit right then.
She had no intentions of ever paying me a bonus. The day I quit, and every day I worked for her, she could not tell me enough how much she appreciated what I did and that I was a breath of fresh air compared to her other employees. I even have a several voice mails saying what a great job I've done.
Denise Frisco was paying me under the table. She is a schmuck! I did everything she asked and WAY more. I can only imagine what excuses she will come up with to cover her butt. She is a HUGE liar, a horrible mother, and is committing tax fraud. Luckily, I am able to report her to CPS, BBB, IRS, and here! I have everything I need to back up every word of my story, and paperwork and witnesses to prove whatever she may try to deny. Justice will be served to Denise!
