Local doctor accused of creepy dog love: Used fake names, committed perjury to get more and more collies

She was involved in a lawsuit with Kara Kauffman who had sold three collies to her in 2013. Court documents show that Kmiec used a false name — “Shiela Kopman” — to enter into the contract with Kauffman for the dogs she received. Kmiec employed the fake name to hide the fact that she was the subject of an ongoing animal cruelty investigation.
