Woman Charged With Child Abuse Now Faces Lawsuit

A local animal rescue worker has filed a lawsuit against a woman charged with child abuse.

Courtney Kendzierski, who operates Noah's Ark K9 Rescue, is suing Rachel Ceaser for breach of contract. She claims Ceaser allowed three foster puppies to die of heat exhaustion last month.

Ceaser was charged July First by the Onslow County Sheriff's Office with misdemeanor child abuse for "allowing seven dogs to live in the same area as two children," according to warrants. That area was strewn with garbage and animal feces.

Ceasar's bond was set at $4,000.

Kendzierski said when she went to Ceaser's house she discovered two small children who were naked with animal feces smeared on their bodies.

    I have Adult ADHD, 3 kids (7 year old and twins that are 3), a dog and I am in Graduate school full time and manage to keep my home hygenic. I married my Marine husband at 18 and started having babies at 20 so I can understand how overwhelming it can be with your husband gone and babies to raise. Obviously this woman needs help in some form. I hope she gets the help she needs and she and her family can be reunited under better conditions! Hopefully she never has pets again bc obviously it is too much for her to handle. Not sure if suing her is going to help matters. My prayers are with this family.

    This thing should go jump off of a tall bridge.
