Punish Alleged Fake Veterinarian Charged With Cruelty

Target: Glenn R. Funk, District Attorney General of Nashville, TN

Goal: Seek maximum penalty in case of woman who allegedly unlawfully practiced veterinary medicine and harmed animals.

A woman named Kelley Gambill has been arrested on animal cruelty charges in Tennessee. While few details have been released, the available information indicates that multiple troubling incidents may have occurred in relation to Gambill’s treatment of animals. She faces charges of aggravated animal cruelty, practicing medicine without a license, and possession of a controlled substance.

Tennessee’s related animal cruelty statute states no individual shall “kill, maim, torture, crush, burn, drown, suffocate, mutilate, starve, or otherwise cause serious physical injury, a substantial risk of death, or death to a companion animal.” Gambill is accused of violating this statute at least once. More troubling still, she is also charged with acting as a veterinarian even though she is unlicensed. If this allegation is true, the woman’s capacity to harm animals may have been immeasurable.

Sign the petition below to demand she face full consequences for these reported crimes if she is found guilty.


Dear District Attorney General Funk,

If a person attempted to perform medical procedures on unsuspecting patients without obtaining the necessary credentials, that person would likely be facing unrelenting legal action. The harm done in such a scenario would be irreparable for many victims. A Nashville woman is accused of just this nightmare crime. Although she is charged with posing as a veterinarian and her alleged victims are animals, the gravity of these accused offenses should be no less.

At least one of Kelley Gambill’s actions have reportedly led to aggravated animal cruelty charges, indicating that she may have done the worst kind of harm. Please send a clear message that such egregious behavior will not be tolerated. Prosecute this woman to the fullest extent of the law.

  1. Dear District Attorney General Funk,
    Ten years in prison and a 10,000 fine is what she deserves!
    Let’s hope that someone in prison, an animal lover, makes her pay for that!
    Please, prosecute this ‘monster’ to the fullest extent of the law.
    Thank you!

    • When you add up all the charges it should be at least 20, and if there were any injuries or murders then it is life w/o parole. The fine needs to be at minimum $100,000 and again if there are any injuries or deaths, $500,000.

    Dear District Attorney General Funk,

    Isn’t The Veterinary Medical Board, responsible for checking on all Veterinarian Clinics to ascertain that those clinics have valid license permits, and the veterinarian’s a valid title?
    That woman deserves jail time and a fine fur impersonating a vet and the harm done to all animals under her fake titlw.

    Wouldn’t you say so?

    To the District Attorney General Funk,

    Apparently, the institutions in charge of animal clinics do not do their work seriously — if the person in charge of that hospital would had done his/hr job conscientiously, he would have realized that the ‘doctor’ in charge was an impostor From the very beginning.
