Help Crowd Fund The Jacksonville Book Here

A long time ago I had a mate at work that we all called Curly, I can’t even remember his real name. We called him Curly, not because had had curly hair, but because he had none, in fact he was a skinhead. It was the same logic we use when we call someone Shorty who is clearly someone who is so tall they duck when going through doorways.

I wonder if this is the same logic that Simone Dines used when she called her dog rescue enterprise “Off The Chain Rescue”.

Before I delve into Simone Dines and her activities, here’s some background on how she came to my attention.

A few weeks ago in a little place called Blind Bight near Cranbourne in Victoria residents bunkered down in fear as a madman let loose with a shotgunThe madman was screaming abuse at neighbours and firing at their houses with a shotgun, one woman with a young child was reportedly deeply traumatised.

In the end helicopters were called in, streets were cordoned off, residents were advised to stay indoors and eventually the madman was arrested. How nobody was injured or even killed was nothing short of a miracle.

The madman, whose name is Troy Scoble was arrested on site and released later after reportedly cooperating with police, although investigations are continuing.

Why Troy was released back into the community he shot up is rather bewildering and I wonder if his name had been Mohammed or Abdul if he would have beeen released so soon after going mad with firearms in a community?

So what was the cause of this madness?

Troy had a few dogs on the property he lived on with his parents, well quite a few in fact. Troy has had issues with several councils over the years regarding his tendency to procure and hold large numbers of unregistered dogs. These dogs were all dogs of breeds used for hunting, Staffie crosses, American Bull Dogs and Staghounds. Of these dogs it is unclear how many were Troy’s as many were unregistered and had no micro-chips, but there were approximately 40 dogs on the property.

These dogs were held next to the house and several in a clearing in bushland several hundred metres from the house.

On the 15th of May the property was raided by the RSPCA, Police and Council. When first questioned by the RSPCA Troy denied knowledge of the dogs in the bushland, despite being shown photographs of several dogs, however after the raid his memory appeared to have been jolted suddenly. This sudden jolt came about however after authorities had left the house and the realisation that someone had been taking photographs of the dogs under his care. Blaming the neighbours out came the shotgun and the aforementioned siege ensued.

However, unfortunately for Troy it was not his neighbours that had been providing RSPCA with photographs it was animal advocates organisation Oscars Law.

Acting on a tip off Oscars Law activists investigated a report of dogs that were chained up in bushland. What they found left them stunned.

Satellite images of the site clearly showed evidence of animals that had been chained up in a bushland clearing for a number of months as images were available  from October last year. All these images showed clearly the circular markings made by dogs on short leashes who can only walk in small circles. Activists went to the site and confirmed that approximately 15 dogs were chained up in a bushland clearing, and many more were chained up outside the house which is located about 500m from the bushland clearing.

Footage from hidden camera’s Oscars Law activists installed show the dogs are fed once a day by Troy who rocks up with food and dumps it in front of them, he does not pat them or show them any affection at all in the short time it takes to give them food. It is unclear how often their water is changed, but given the distance from a tap, and given that it would be a major hassle to transport water to the location I would assume that it is not often, the size of the water buckets and the putrid colour of the water in them indicate that a change of water is a rarity.

To indicate Troy’s disregard and contempt for both the law and the dogs, even after he had been raided by the authorities for his mistreatment and neglect of these dogs, the below picture shows the condition of the drinking water of the dogs when Oscars Law activists went to check on them over the weekend.

Troy however is not just an animal-abuser, he is the on-again off-again partner/estranged lover of Simone Dines.

Many of the dogs chained up on the property are micro-chipped under the name “American Bulldog Rescue & Referral Australia”, a rescue group which Dines previously ran. American Bulldog Rescue closed down not long after a huge backlash against the group when it was discovered that someone from the group had shot one of the dogs in the head.

Now Dines runs the rescue group “Off The Chain Rescue – Bull Breeds” while the dogs she claims to have rescued previously live 24 hours a day on chains. Dines also labels herself as a dog trainer, although her label and high hopes don’t count as qualifications which are something she appears to lack.

Dines even has a donation tab on her unregistered “Off The Chain Rescue” group Facebook page where you can donate funds via PayPal into her own personal bank account. These donated funds Dines claims go towards looking after the dogs, and who knows, may have even paid for the chains her estranged lover keeps the dogs permanently chained with.

Not only that Dines, is also a registered breeder with Dogs Victoria, something which is surely another proud feather in the cap of the industry body which appears to be boosting its membership with puppy factories. Dines runs Simmicor Kennels and I wonder if donations to “Off The Chain Rescue” help her out to run that business, when not funding chains for Troy. Simone also runs another breeding business called Rain Storm Cane Corso’s.

Dines was notified by Oscar’s Law of her dogs being chained up in the bush weeks ago, and several attempts have been made by Oscar’s Law, the RSPCA, and other rescue groups to organise for the surrender of these dogs, however Dines has refused to cooperate. 

I contacted Dines to hear her side of the story, and was greeted with threats of legal action and abuse. Dines spoke furiously of how nobody had offered to help poor Troy with the dogs. When I suggested that perhaps the way to seek assistance from neighbours was not to shoot at their houses with a shotgun, her response was

“That’s how we do it on a farm”

Not once did she display any concern or sympathy for the dogs during our discussion. In fact it is safe to say she was wearing her “Troy Rescue” hat rather than any “Dog Rescue” hat when I spoke with her.

Despite her recent attempts to do something or say anything constructive, Dines once offered this sound advice to her followers on Facebook.

Troy Scoble has been charged by Casey Shire Council with numerous offences and I understand police investigation into his shotgun rampage are ongoing.

Meanwhile Simone Dines continues to take donations on her woefully misnamed “Off The Chain Rescue” Facebook page. Simone Dines also continues to run her Simmicor Kennels breeding business, and she also goes to KCC Park at the State Dog Centre to act as a steward for Dogs Victoria.

I hope that the Tax Department and Consumer Affairs look into the public donations being made to an unregistered rescue group with a personal bank account. I hope that Bass Coast Council take a closer look at the conditions dogs on Dine’s property are living in. I hope that police and Casey Council leave no stone unturned when investigating and prosecuting Troy Scoble.

Simone’s Facebook page before she closed it down had references to he receiving Centrelink payments. I hope that someone takes a look at any welfare she receives, as someone who runs two breeding businesses, accepts donations, and I’m told also earns money as a trainer probably needs to be looked into.

Not only that, I hope Dogs Victoria come to their senses and deregister Dines as a breeder and I would implore them to also not allow her to steward on their behalf or have any connection to Dogs Victoria or the Kennel Club whatsoever. 

Most of all though, given Simone and Troy refuse to do the right thing and have thus far failed to comply with directives such as clean water supply, I hope the RSPCA can seize these dogs which are at present still chained up in the bush.

This would be a good start.

  1. OH FFS Wixxy,there sure are some kuntz here on this Earth
    Thanks for exposing some of them,you have the knackers

  2. These two obviously deserve each other both nutters. They should NEVER be allowed to have any animals in their care. Wake up authorities both Legal and animal and give these scumbags the full force of the law, coming from a Tax payer, something she is clearly avoiding!!!

  3. Troy, Simone… See you real soon.

    Kind regards,

  4. So VICPOL just going on a rampage with a shotgun is ok is it? I’m sure if he was a Muslim he’d be locked up for life without a trial. What ONGOING investigations are they exactly?

  5. Karma those poor dogs pls lets get them out of there please

  6. If the RSPCA have confirmed that the dogs have and are being abused and not recieving even the basic Veterinary Care , then why cant they be seized right now.
    Those poor dogs have been through hell and taken out of thete ASAP…And as for those POS they should be chained up in there spot.

  7. Oh are you kidding. These dogs are still there. Sometimes it needs someone brave enough to break the law and get dogs to rescue. Do it in night with claw cutters and get them out somehow…please!!!

  8. I,m discusted to see how this pair are treating these poor dogs .surely the law can step in and sieze these grossly neglected animals ,jail terms should be an outcome .

  9. Breeder?Somethings wrong with the law when they continue to gain breeding licenses.I have met people done for animal cruelty and then they go get a different pet and all is good.No,Once an offender and proven you should be banned from pet ownership altogether .Steward? Omg.How does someone get into such a trusted position with a background in abuse.

  10. I can’t get past WTF !
    I’ve been following this story on Oscars Law page, so much sadness and wrongness amongst it all, but for the life of me I can not understand why those dogs are still there !!! All with authority have been notified, yet those dogs are still there .. WHY !

    PS: Thanks for another brilliant article.

  11. hope they trip in front of a fast moving train. gutter scum! how this Simone skank is a steward or a registered breeder is beyond me… is there no screening process? as for her mistreatment of animals and her lies she portrays I hope she has a meeting with karma soon…and that karma doesn’t go easy on her. that’s not what I really wanted to write but death threats are unacceptable on a social media site.

  12. Disgusting behavior.. They aren’t a rescue , don’t insult us that really do help animals . These people need to be fucking shot .

  13. if you want to pop in for a cuppa and tell Simone & Troy what you really think – their address is xxxxxxxxxxxx – and yes she has trained her dogs to attack – filthy

  14. I want to say well done Annie Lomax, you saw this wasn’t right before anyone else did and exposed this woman for the cruel con merchant that she is. I’m very proud of you.

  15. Sorry, I had to edit out the address for obvious reasons

  16. it was a tea and bikkies invite! Why not? Somehow i think they are not Tea and bikkie people considering they are soooooo desperate for illegal $$$$ thanks Peter for the story

  17. Never trusted that rescue group. ALWAYS pushing for donations while bad mouthing people who were encouraging direct fosters. Thanks for the great article and exposing the lies.

  18. Why aren’t these people being charged with ANIMAL CRUELTY, DEFRAUDING THE PUBLIC & OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE. Not to mention endangering the lives of the Community with a SHOTGUN RAMPAGE. What are the Police doing about enforcing the LAW here. These pair should be charged and sentenced to a term in Prison and have the DOGS protected and confiscated by RSPCA. Too many people get away with ABUSE to animals. Thank you to the people who have brought this to the attention of the Public. Hope the authorities arrest these people soon.

  19. I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s selling them to dog fighting rings…’s the right breed. Scumbags!!!

  20. Why not put them on a chain for months and months and see whether they think it’s humane… I just hope that the right thing is done for these poor poor pups. They deserve to be loved!

  21. only recently this person was bagging out other breeders of cane corso’s saying they were only in it for the money! …while behind closed doors taking money and donations for a bogus rescue for pound dogs. She was alway claiming to be the victim which is why (so she says) the Amercian bulldog rescue was shut down….all the dots are starting to form a picture now simone, see you around!!!

  22. You fucking low scum life both of u riot in hell ???I donated my own money to help these pound dogs not only to find out like this that actually u are thievs now get to jail and b bum fucked

  23. I thought the dogs weren’t registered with the council, isn’t that a reason for the dogs to be taken away and I would have thought that walking around shooting at your neighbours was against the law, so why is he not behind bars. The whole affair is ridiculous, someone needs to make a decision and act on it without anymore stuffing around.

  24. Dead set flogs the both of them. Insane hillbillies!

    Do a little net snooping and you can find their filthy lair for some old fashioned IRL trolling.

    I’d share the location but don’t want to be involved in damaging any of the good work the rspca and Oscar’s law are doing.

  25. Off the Chain K9 Rescue Qld is a Toowoomba based animal rescue. Off the Chain K9 Rescue Qld is registered as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission ABN 93919758477. It has been registered as a charity since 01 June 2015.

    Off the Chain K9 Rescue Qld has no association with the Victorian based Off The Chain Bull Breed Rescue ABN 15 340 865 200. These are two separate entities.

  26. I sincerely hope these beautiful dogs have a chance at being loved and cared for. As for Troy and simone, may you get the most crippling cancer in your genitals and suffer everyday until it spreads to every organ in a protracted and painful death. Miserable fucks, you will get what you deserve.

  27. These ARE rescue dogs, these people took them off death row and are trying to care for them ’cause nobody wants them (except for fighting and they are hiding them away from that). Yes, they are chained up but what would you do with so many dogs that no one else wants or helps them care for? They’ve taken on more than they can handle. Each has its own shelter, food and water. Yes, they have fleas but maybe they can’t afford to de-flea them all. What about all you ‘caring’ people pay for a pack of Advance de-flea + wormer and send it to them? What about you volunteer to walk, feed and water these dogs or even pay for a bore to be dug so they can get fresh water??? Lastly don’t believe everything you read, remember to research and look into the hidden agenda.

  28. Why haven’t the dogs been rescued, wasn’t that the purpose of the investigations?

    That women needs to be investigated and her businesses closed down. Isn’t there enough breeders for God sake

  29. so many activities people would like them to participate in!!! are you sure you don’t want to share their address?? 🙂
    Seriously they are criminal and dangerous to both humans and animals – something needs to be done

  30. Thanks Simone, yes you guys really are the victims on this eh?

    Why take on dogs if you can’t handle them, why take money from people and claim it’s for the dogs when it isn’t, why refuse to surrender the dogs when there were a queue of people looking to care for them, why lie to people and say the dogs have been rehomed when they have just been dumped in the bush on a chain.

    I don’t use this word often, but what kind of cunt after being exposed posts a comment under a false name seeking more handouts?

  31. Lorella, nice alias by the way… Simone Dines.

    Many of these dogs are stolen, not rescue. You’re an idiot.

  32. Simone / Lorella if you can’t cope – then what is the problem with you handing them over now to the authorities so that they can be vet checked and rehabilitated and just loved – Solution – problem solved

  33. She has other rescue groups of the same ilk as hers she is hoping to pass them over to… No doubt there will be another ask for money

  34. What a load of shit ! Simone didn’t write that screen shot about shooting horses and dogs ! Simone is NOT a dog abuser !!! FFS Everyone is so focused on the CHAINS because this is what Oscars wants you to do, to help pass a no chaining law!
    Were is the neglect pics? I dont see any skin and bone or hair missing!!
    I see dogs with ! These dog’s look to be in pretty good shape with good muscle tone which indicates they are getting good food and regular exercise!
    There are 2 sides to every story so far we have seen 1 !

  35. I find it outrageous that Troy Scoble can go on a gun rampage and be free to terrorise people again. I find it outrageous that those dogs are still in his possession living out in the freezing cold. I find it uncomprehendable that Simone Dine is running a Rescue Group and a Dog Training business. Dogs Vic have absolutely no credibility for allowing Simone Dines to act as a Steward for them. Centrelink and the ATO must look into both these people as they are clearly earning money and receiving donations. In the case of Simone Dines feeling like a victim she is delusional. You DO NOT rescue dogs and put them in a situation where you can not care for them. Same deal with whining Puppy Farmers that get caught, they say they couldn’t afford to look after all their dogs. This excuse is used to gain sympathy and a get out of jail free card. If you can’t afford to care for animals, you don’t deserve them.

  36. I guess you think being tied up all day every day isn’t abuse.

    Many of the dogs have wounds, all of them have severe flea issues and all of them are drinking from buckets of filth as their only means to hydrate.

    I attempted to get the other side, I guess we’ll have to wait for court

  37. Also, I quite confident didn’t name Simone’s group “Off The Chain”

    She put the focus on the chains

  38. You can see by those dogs demeaner they are very unhappy. They are sitting hunched over, heads down. They look like they have lost hope. Tonight the temperature in that area will be around 2 degrees and those poor dogs will be so cold out in the bush. Some have a wooden ‘kennel’ but that won’t stop them freezing. The photos clearly show dirty drinking water. I’m not focusing on the chains, but that is cruel to have those dogs chained up in the bush with nothing to do day after day endlessly. These dogs are NOT rescued. They’ve gone to hell.

  39. DOGS Victoria
    18 hrs · · Animals & Pets
    It has come to the attention of DOGS Victoria that the RSPCA, Victorian Police and Local Council have received reports regarding the welfare of dogs on a property within the Casey Council area.
    The DOGS Victoria member mentioned in the information provided is not an active member of the Association.
    DOGS Victoria contacted Casey Council and has been advised of the following – the DOGS Victoria member mentioned has no case to answer and is not a person of interest in the matter. The second person involved in this matter is not a member of DOGS Victoria and therefore outside of the jurisdiction of the Association.

    Simone Dines is a willing participant of the abuse of these animals – sociopath that she is

  40. Mixy, aka Simone Dines again… stop being a dumbarse bogan whore animal abuser and GTFO.

    We know where they live.

    See you real soon!

    ok it is great they have taken on her dogs which is wonderful news and great work to the rescue – but to stroke her ego publically in this post is RIDICULOUS – i know they had to stroke her ego in getting to negotiate with her which is ok and is what rescues have to do to get a positive result – but to put up this ridiculous post about the violins and poor simone???SHE KNEW WHERE THESE DOGS WERE _ SHE KNEW THEIR STATE – IN FACT SHE RETURNED ONE THERE IN APRIL AFTER SOMEONE APPARENTLY STOLE HER – to be returned to that hell hole – she is in contact with Troy – he is a regular visitor to her trashy excuse of a home – which home the dogs above who have now been surrendered lived – hopefully they can be rehabilitated to not be the aggressive guard dogs she has trained them to be – so really no danger of them being stolen unless you want to get your arm ripped off – look at the training techniques she encourages on her dog training FB page – yes these dogs are in physically good condition but I can’t even imagine the behavioural issues and how broken they are in spirit . I Also love the way Simone the Sociopath gets off on replying to that above post using her FB alias – a very very dangerous evil manipulative and cunning human –

  42. What kind of a person could treat a dog like this? I’m sickened by such abusive actions, but what’s the bet, all they’II get is a ‘slap on the wrist’ & be told ‘don’t to it again’. Something is so, so wrong!

  43. In Toowoomba on Wed June 8, I was driving behind a black ute with ACT plates and a large decal on its rear window, with two chains encircling the name Off The Chain Enterprises – just what is this significance? Can anyone elucidate? Who’d want to be seen as associated with the obvious Victorian enterprises??
