Are most people in the SUPPORTIVE DONATING PUBLIC REALLY “O.K.” with donation-funded “rescues” KILLING INNOCENT ANIMALS AFTER THEY’VE “RESCUED THEM” WITH THE PUBLICS HELP and DONATION-MONEY?
NO, they aren’t!
Some/many donation-funded rescues have a HIGH KILL RATE, but no one knows JUST HOW MANY INNOCENT ANIMALS, that are supposed to be “rescued”, that they KILL USING THE PUBLICS DONATION-MONEY because they won’t HONESTLY and CONCISELY ANSWER QUESTIONS FROM THE PUBLIC THAT SENDS THEM MONEY, BE TRANSPARENT and PUBLICLY POST EXACTLY HOW MANY ANIMALS THEY’RE KILLING.
WHY IS THAT?
BECAUSE THEY KNOW THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THEY REAP FROM THE PUBLIC IN DONATIONS WOULD DROP RADICALLY IF PEOPLE KNEW HOW BLOODTHIRSTY AND GREEDY SOME OF THESE “RESCUES” REALLY ARE, THAT’S WHY!
Its disheartening, disgusting, and despicable that trusting, innocent animals that should be SAFE at a “rescue” are instead KILLED or “disappeared” because the “rescue” doesn’t want to care for and maintain animals that they can’t bring any more donations in on and/or that they can’t sell.
Where do all those designated fundraiser donations go that were sent to the rescue for specific and designated purposes (not for people buy personal items, paying personal bills, having cosmetic surgery, taking vacations, etc)?
Who the heck knows because without OVERSIGHT that requires that predominately or wholly donation-funded animal rescues SHOW the PUBLIC their financials, the rescues that will publicly post things they shouldn’t have a problem with being accountable to the public on are few and FAR BETWEEN.
The animal loving public has a MORAL OBLIGATION to safeguard animals AFTER a donation-funded rescue seizes them, buys them, finds them, or acquires them in some fashion USING THE TAXPAYING and/or THE DONATING PUBLICS MONEY.
The PRIMARY WAY at the GRASSROOTS LEVEL to FORCE OVERSIGHT on donation-funded animal rescues is for the PUBLIC to perform OVERSIGHT themselves, ASK these “rescues” QUESTIONS and EXPECT ANSWERS.
NO ANSWERS and/or EVASIVE DOUBLE-TALK ANSWERS from the DONATION-FUNDED “RESCUE” EQUALS
NO DONATIONS FROM THE PUBLIC
THEIR DAYS OF ANIMAL TRAFFICKING WILL BE OVER
DO NOT COLLECT MONEY and PASS “GO”!
Additionally, the PUBLIC should SHARE this INFORMATION with their FAMILY, THEIR FRIENDS, and with OTHER PEOPLE in the PUBLIC in order to make the “rescues” that are USING the PUBLICS MONEY to OPERATE and KILL INNOCENT ANIMALS GO “OUT OF BUSINESS” so they can’t KEEP KILLING ANIMALS WITH IMPUNITY.
As strange as this may sound, MANY of the legitimate donation-funded rescues that:
~ don’t rip-off the public
~ that don’t LIE and MANIPULATE
~ that don’t kill innocent animals all the time
~ that don’t “disappear” animals into the black void of nothingness
~that often HAVE primary participants that work fulltime jobs to support their rescue-efforts
are AFRAID of the players that run RETAIL RESCUES!
YES, THEY ARE!
The current-day animal-rescue-arena is COMPETITIVE EVEN THOUGH IT SHOULDN’T BE!
and with MONEY, PUBLICITY, a “FOLLOWING” and other “goodies” as the PRIZES, things get UGLY, UNETHICAL,
and even downright FRIGHTENING really fast.
WHAT ARE THE ETHICAL RESCUES AFRAID OF?
Lets see, they’re afraid of:
1. being attacked in regard to the chronically and/or acutely ill, the terminally ill, or the old animals they rescue and take care of that might not look so swell or healthy but they don’t kill them just because the animal can’t be “USED” for anything.
2. they’re afraid of being trashed, the victim of a smear campaign, stalked, harassed, threatened.
3. they’re afraid of having “false reports”, which are ILLEGAL but it happens anyway, sent in anonymously, or often not anonymously, to tax-payer-funded government entities that usually have to respond to complaints that are filed.
Note: with legislation in the works to hold people that “false report” accountable through fines and/or prosecution for illegally using government entities to go after other people, this activity may fall by the wayside to a great extent SOON because these people USING TAX-PAYER FUNDED AGENCIES to further their own nasty agenda, (and they often KNOW there is nothing wrong regarding whatever they are “reporting” on), is OUT OF CONTROL!
3. they’re afraid because they’ve seen these “retail rescues” in action RAMPING-UP MOBS of people on social media (that they manipulate and LIE to) to swarm and attack animal owners, other rescues, anyone that has animals basically, and these clueless wonders in the MINDLESS MOB “reaches-out” based on lies to anyone and everyone they can think of including local and regional government, state government, the FBI, the large ANIMAL RIGHTS orgs that embellish and lie a lot themselves in order to pull in donations and get publicity, etc, etc, etc.
5. and they’re VERY AFRAID because it is NOT cheap and easy for hard-working people that support a rescue with their OWN MONEY primarily to hire an attorney to defend them and/or file a civil lawsuit. – if they are swarmed and attacked, it could, and very well might, be life-destroying.
These “RETAIL RESCUES” KNOW this is the case and they are NOT WORRIED (although, they should be because MORE PEOPLE are fighting back, and government agencies are getting wise to them and/or are being sued because of them) that no matter how much they manipulate and “work” the clueless in the public, no matter how many animals they KILL, no matter “WHAT”, other rescues near and far “keep their heads down” and don’t say word-one about the unethical, immoral, and often illegal activities they do CONSTANTLY.
Its up to the PUBLIC to JOIN in the GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT of “ASK QUESTIONS and EXPECT ANSWERS” from donation-funded animal rescues!
Now if you don’t want to read this whole blog post, but DO WANT TO JOIN THE “ASK QUESTIONS and EXPECT ANSWERS” MOVEMENT to HELP INNOCENT TRUSTING ANIMALS, please scroll to the end of this post for some great ideas of QUESTIONS to ASK AND EXPECT ANSWERS to YOUR QUESTIONS from DONATION-FUNDED ANIMAL RESCUES that very well could be animal traders and dealers posing as “rescues” that are low-down “RETAIL RESCUES” running their BUSINESS at the expense of trusting people and innocent animals.
These predominately, or wholly donation-funded “rescues” ask for money from the public to “rescue” animals, then ask for and receive more money from the public AFTER the “rescue” in order to care for and maintain them (or so they say) because they don’t have money of their own with which to operate.
BUT THEN they “sort” the animals, keep the ones they will, or “might” be able to sell, and KILL the ones that aren’t USEFUL to anyone and in their morally bankrupt minds, are nothing more than “MONEY-PITS”.
That sounds just like what an animal control, or a kill buyer at a feedlot for horses DOES !
In other words, THIS BEHAVIOR is NOT WHAT A REAL RESCUE WOULD EVER DO!
CON-ARTISTS that have INFILTRATED ANIMAL RESCUE and are known as “RETAIL RESCUES” ALWAYS KNOW HOW TO “WORK THE SYSTEM” and THE PUBLIC and relatively little OVERSIGHT by government agencies makes their SCAMS against the PUBLIC even easier to perpetrate!
Because of the LACK OF OVERSIGHT, the public MUST, MUST, MUST scrutinize the donation-funded rescues in order to expose their greed and treating animals like “merchandise” because of the FACT that MANY of the predominately, or wholly, donation-funded “rescues” ARE MORAL FAILURES as evidenced by the stories at the links on today’s blog post.
The OTHER QUESTION that is like the “elephant in the room” is “oh my”, what’s a donation-funded animal “rescue” that is adoption-based supposed to do with the many animals they seize, buy/receive from “wherever”, acquire, etc using other peoples money when it is found out the animal has physical and/or behavioral/training issues that renders them UNADOPTABLE with, or without a fee, and they also cannot be rehabbed into looking good, being useable for anything, etc (just like human beings as INDIVIDUALS)?
These “rescues” “tell” people “we’re adoption-based” and their True Believer Kool-Aid drinking followers think its just dandy and believe every word they slurp-up that these “rescues” “say” when yet another animal “HAS” to be “put down”.
OR, as is OFTEN the case when people have their heads stuck deep in the sand, everyone just STOPS talking about some of the animals because they really DON’T WANT TO KNOW what happened to them.
That’s why people like this are called “enablers” because without these True Believers that come-and-go constantly through the social media revolving door, these “rescues” would collapse and go under.
The other way to EXPOSE these hustlers is to ASK THEM ALOT OF QUESTIONS and EXPECT ANSWERS.
Too bad, so-NOT-sad for these donation-funded adoption based “rescues” is the fact that once people are educated in “the rescue racket” being run because there is relatively little-to-no OVERSIGHT for these donation-funded rescues that are OFTEN animal traders, dealers, and flippers posing as “rescues”, fewer and fewer people actually believe their asinine nonsense that even a reasonably intelligent 3rd grader could see right through their fictional fantasy stories (according to the “rescue”) of:
* “why” they “had” to kill animals (and the public only ever sees a small number of animals being killed and are not privy to the numerous animals being killed secretly because the “rescue” won’t give even a monthly head-count so interested parties can keep track of innocent animals that are supposed to be “rescued”);
TRANSLATION: they won’t usually show any, (but sometimes “they throw their trusting followers a bone” and show them a token vet report or euthanasia report), vet and euthanasia reports for ALL of the rescued animals they “say” their vet is looking at and “have” to be “put down” because their vet doesn’t want to jeopardize their licensing by writing fabricated reports that wouldn’t pass muster under scrutiny.
*why some of the animals that they seized months earlier for *supposedly* being “starved”, “neglected”, etc aren’t ever seen again and/or are euthanized, “put down”, KILLED;
TRANSLATION: because what happens frequently is that the “rescuers” in their ignorance actually mishandle and/or mismanage animals and they cause accidents, illness, and conditions that lead to their demise OR many of the seized animals don’t improve all but a little bit, if at all, so the accusations of “starving” and “neglect” leveled at animal owners that were their victims of attack on a “seizure scam” obviously WERE NOT TRUE – so in order to HIDE the lack of improvement that wrecks the “rescues” rehab rate and/or shows them as vile liars, they KILL THE ANIMALS that will expose the “rescue” for the nasty people they all are.
*“we sent them to a sanctuary” or “they’re at a foster-home” or “they’re out on a ‘trial adoption”;
TRANSLATION: the locations of all of these types of places remains a mystery that never gets solved because most people are too trusting to follow up on if its true, or NOT, and many of their followers have their heads buried deep in the sand and don’t appear to CARE WHERE the animals are currently;
*”we’re raising funds to buy property for a sanctuary”;
TRANSLATION: for retail rescues this actually means “we’ll be able to take the useless animals to another location away from our public rescue facilities property where we can dispose of the worthless animals without anyone the wiser to just how many we kill, or how many we dump through various outlets”.
*”they’re still at our facility and are doing great”;
TRANSLATION: they may or may not still be at their facility, but they won’t show current photos if the animal is still there but has been there a long time because at some point, these “rescues” “clear the shelves” of “old merchandise” animals to make room for “fresh merchandise”, so they don’t want people to start keeping tabs on those animals which they want people to NOT ask about, and forget about them instead.
They also rarely if ever show the care and maintenance reports and bills that donors are always being asked to pay for because some of these animals they’re fixing to get rid of are nothing more than “money pits” that they don’t want to spend any more of that free donation money on them than they have to.
The story at this link is very sad, but it is the reality for many old, useless, ill, chronic health issue animals; they are KILLED and NOT RESCUED.
Here’s an excerpt from the story at the link above and what the PUBLICS donation-money is PAYING FOR – the MURDER of animals AFTER they are literally STOLEN under color-of-law by “rescues” (makes intelligent people wonder what else they’re STEALING):
“Why would a so-called association for the ‘protection of animals’ kill a healthy dog? What other motives are at work here? There is something very dark and sinister afoot in Moulton and advocates are fearing the worst. “Grandpa was dragged by an ASPCA worker named ‘John’ out the door with rope around his neck.” Grandpa knew something bad was happening and most likely sensed he was doomed. Grandpa was right. ASPCA killed Grandpa.”
The primary reason this crap happens is because there is NO REAL OVERSIGHT to speak of for donation-funded animal rescues.
This pertains to their FINANCIALS on FREE donation-money coming in, what its being used on, where are the receipts and bills, the veterinary reports and euthanasia reports, and WHERE in the HELL are ALL of the animals these so-called “rescues” are rescuing weeks and months AFTER they’ve “rescued” them?
And now that fewer and fewer people are actually trusting and/or dumb enough to believe the silly rhetoric spewing forth from these faux “rescuers” mouths and from their typing fingers with their eloquent, but patently false stories, regarding animals and how they should always look and behave well, there is no excuse for animals NOT looking and behaving good and well, and if they can’t be made to “look good” and/or “behave well”, surely they must die or be “disappeared”.
The problem for the scam-artists at these opportunistic retail rescues is that intelligent people who think about things KNOW that animals get acutely ill, they get chronically diseased, they get old, they sometimes look “iffy”, or even downright bad because they have non-correctable issues.
However, just because they may be unadoptable, or they’ve been hanging around eating for too long, it certainly doesn’t mean they WANT to DIE or be KILLED!
ADDITIONALLY, THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE THAT DONATE THAT WOULDN’T IF THEY KNEW THEIR MONEY WAS CONTRIBUTING TO THE KILLING OF SO MANY ANIMALS!
The “retail rescues” operating all over the world COUNT ON THE FACT that there is relatively little OVERSIGHT for animal rescues, and the public up until recently DON’T ASK QUESTIONS AND EXPECT ANSWERS!
THE PUBLIC IS BEING USED, THE ANIMALS ARE BEING USED, and the only ones benefitting are the animal traders and dealers that POSE AS “RESCUES”!
Animals want to LIVE, they want to be with other compatible animals, they want to enjoy whatever phase of life they’re in.
And when an animal doesn’t want to live any longer, wise animal owners know when it is time to help them pass because the animal tells them its time.
But what do the donation-funded retail rescues that are “into” production-line/repetitive “rescue” do?
They “convenience KILL” or “disappear” animals like this, that’s what!
And to “cover” their abhorrent and despicable killings, they “tell” their trusting followers all kinds of things that can often be shown are lies, and they refuse to publicly SHOW the numbers of animals they have every month, how many are in “foster care”, how many are on “trial adoptions”, how many were adopted, and how many were euthanized/”put down”/killed.
“Rescues” can “tell” the public whatever they want – but the PUBLIC WANTS TO SEE THE INFORMATION WITH THEIR OWN EYES!
Since a lot more people are becoming WISE to their con-game, that is a FACT!
However, these hustlers in retail rescue are doing the mad shuffle trying to figure out new ways to kill or “disappear” animals that the now-more-alert public is becoming educated in the ploys and manipulations, they are ASKING QUESTIONS and EXPECTING ANSWERS BEFORE they’ll donate.
In other words, the PUBLIC is performing OVERSIGHT free of charge since government agencies aren’t doing it in any meaningful kind of way, and clueless “reporter”-hacks weave fantasy fairy tales about “animal whispers” that anyone that knows the people being written about are guffawing about and thinking it MUST be a joke.
Donation-money and animals are disappearing by the thousands at retail rescues in every civilized country that has them operating within their borders, but this is going to STOP because ASKING QUESTIONS and EXPECTING ANSWERS will EXPOSE these “opportunists” EVERY TIME!
A good guide located at the link below speaks to the issue of donation-funded adoption-based animal rescues and how to get a “read” on the ethical ones, and the “not so much” ones.
They are addressing donation-funded adoption-based and not sanctuaries/hospices that often don’t deal in the adoptions of animals and are not adoption-based except for infrequently:
Below is the questionnaire that can be sent to any donation-funded retail rescue.
Or the public can ask questions and expect answers.
And if they don’t get answers to ALL of their questions, its quite simple what the course of action, or inaction should be: Don’t support them, and don’t waste your money donating to them because they don’t deserve your time nor your money when they disrespectfully won’t concisely answer all of the questions posed to them.
