In February 2011, the Foster for our two rescue dogs, Dante (renamed to Carmello by the Foster) and Gordie ( renamed by the Foster to Lucky ) were unlawfully retained by the Foster and have therefore been stolen from our organization.
The Foster, Josephine Viscito (AKA Tanya Baxtel, Tanya Collins, Tanya Vazquez, Tanya Viscito) originally from Rosdale, NY, currently residing at 171 South Bayberry Court in Anaheim, CA runs an in-home boarding and training business out of her rental home under the current name Puppy Is Good and previously Jo’s Dog Training and is now involved with running a home-based business called Makemeskinnywrap.myitworks.com. She claims to have 35 years of training but is not accredited. After being taken to court in a civil proceeding Ms. Viscito claims the one dog ran away when in New York with her daughter, known as Jet Alton, whose legal name is Darlene Alton, and that Gordie died, whereas her son, either Michael Viscito or David Collins dropped his body off at the shelter. No paperwork was able to be produced to back up any of the claims made in court.
If you see either Dante and/or Gordie, please help them come back to the safety of the rescue, where they will receive much needed medical attention and nutrition. Josephne Viscito commented that the dogs were thin (even though their food was consistently delivered and other needs covered by PetCo gift cards ) and not to be shocked when initial arrangements were made by our rescue for the dogs to have some routine veterinary care. Obviously, she felt that their condition may get her in to trouble and has decided not to return the dogs. We just want Dante and Gordie returned. If you know anything of our dogs, please either contact us or our Attorney Robert Newman at (714) 542-7600
