11. and no intelligent person believes them when they “SAY” the animal is in “foster care”, “a sanctuary”, “went to another rescue”, or was “adopted” without seeing factual PROOF, DOCUMENTATION, photos, and videos of the animal wherever they were supposedly moved and shuttled off too.
And in the case of horses, documentation attained shows that some “retail rescues” “back-door” horses through other horse traders, through out-of-area “kill sales”, through kill buyers, and through feedlots horses INTO “the slaughter pipeline”, and the useless horses are commercially slaughtered, sent there by the very people that were supposed to have “rescued them”. Some horse rescues also “continue the circle of life”, so these cheap-skate, greedy posers say, by taking live horses to carnivore sanctuaries where the horse is shot, and then the quite possibly TAINTED meat is fed to the carnivores –
THAT is actually considered by many people to be abuse and/or cruelty to carnivores in ‘sanctuaries’ that are fed horse meat that quite possibly contains toxic chemicals and drugs.
So PLEASE kind-hearted people in the public sector that ARE truly trying to HELP animals in need of helping, and NEVER just take “the word” of a rescue that an animal owner was neglectful, cruel, abusive, that they weren’t feeding and taking care of their animals the best they could, etc.
*Maybe* they did need some “help” to get back on track on various things to make the animals lives better a bit sooner, and they were trusting enough to believe that a rescue was truly going to help them keep their family-member animals at home where they belong until the animal owner got back on their feet.
However, in many cases, the animal owners that end up under attack by these “retail rescues” did NOT NEED help, so they refused the rescue access to their property and their animals, but the “retail rescue” saw an opportunity to make free money through donations, get free animals they can sell and/or get thousands upon thousands of dollars of “sympathy/pity” donations for, a way in which the “rescue” receives attention, accolades, praise, and several other things, so they ramp-up a MOB and go on the attack – all of this occurs even though the ‘retail rescues’ are often committing non-profit fraud, income tax fraud, and other crimes,
The phenomenon of what is called “retail rescue” (animal traders/dealers/brokers/’flippers’) is operating in epidemic proportions ALL OVER the United States, and also around the world, and it IS just plain NASTY, unethical, dishonest, dishonorable, and often does NOT really help the animals at all.
It basically brings out the very worst of human nature in far too many people that join a “social media madness mob” and attack people they don’t even know based on “the word” of a so-called “rescue” they don’t even know, that OFTEN REFUSE to SHOW FACTUAL INFORMATION such as vet reports, vet bills, receipts for EVERYTHING, photos of ALL of the animals, videos of ALL of the animals, etc.
And because animal owners are trusting that if a “rescue” is offering to “help” them, they really:
1. believe, at first anyway, that it means the rescue will “help” them with their animals right there at/in their own homes;
In order to separate the real rescues from the “retail rescues“, anyone that really wants to KNOW for themselves the TRUTH and the FACTS instead of “taking a rescues word for it”:1.
when any PUBLICLY-operated, PUBLICLY-marketed, PUBLICLY-donation-funded animal rescue POSTS that they HAVE to ‘rescue’ some animals;
