ALL Animal Rescues and Sanctuaries That “Partner” With Government Agencies Seizing/Stealing Animals Need to Be Investigated – “VETTED” FIRST

Traitor1

Any of the so-called “rescues” or “sanctuaries” that are in “partnering” (collusion in more cases than people might imagine) with TAXPAYER-FUNDED government agencies seizing animals NEED to be investigated top to bottom regarding their finances, their facilities, their licensing, their associations with other animal welfare and animal rights groups, their association, alliance, and interactions with government agencies, their history of animals being killed or “disappeared” into thin air never to be seen or heard from again AFTER the animals were supposed to be RESCUED from their lawful owners, “rescued” from “wherever” (the donating, supportive public always needs to know exactly WHERE animals are being rescued from), etc.

The link to the blog post below relates to the thievery happening in Ohio where exotic animal owners of MANY YEARS are having their rights to own and maintain those animals assaulted and raped by new laws put in place within the past few years.

Many of these owners have tried to comply, only to have their applications held by the Ohio Department of AG for months, and then sent back to them for “correction” while also telling them “too late, you’re past the deadline for submission now and we’re taking your animals” (with help from other so-called “rescues” and “sanctuaries” they “partner” with).

Follow the money trail because it is 99.99999% guaranteed that those “rescues” and “sanctuaries” are “double-dipping” and getting not only tax payers money handed to them by the government agencies they are partnering/in-collusion-with, but also are receiving thousands upon thousands of FREE donation money they plead for on social media from gullible people in the public, and they are not being HELD TO ACCOUNT FOR EXACTLY WHO IS GIVING THEM MONEY AND IN WHAT AMOUNTS and EXACTLY WHAT THE MONEY IS BEING USED FOR REGARDING WHAT ARE CALLED “DESIGNATED FUNDRAISERS” OR “TARGETED FUNDRAISERS” (asking for donations for specific things).

IN ADDITION THOSE “SANCTUARIES” ARE NOT HAVING TO ACCOUNT FOR EVERY SINGLE ANIMAL SEIZED/STOLEN FROM THEIR OWNERS UNDER COLOR OF LAW AND SHOW THE PUBLIC WHETHER THE ANIMALS ARE ALIVE OR DEAD, AND EXACTLY WHERE EVERY PENNY OF DONATION AND TAXPAYER MONEY GIVEN TO THEM IS BEING SPENT.

That money could have been used to actually HELP the rightful and LEGAL animal owners bring their facilities up to federal inspection code under the new laws, take care of the animals every need for months or years, etc.

The way people will know that some, perhaps many seizures have nothing to do with violations, bringing things up to code, and the welfare of the animals is the VAST LACK OF HELP for the actual owners these animals know and love as family FOR MANY, MANY YEARS IN MOST CASES.

It is crystal clear in MANY INSTANCES OF THIS HAPPENING that this is all about GREED, POWER, CONTROL, POLITICS, HATEFULNESS, and is like junior high school kids behavior on steroids IN ALL ITS ABSURDITY, VINDICTIVE BULLYING, PETTINESS, AND VILINESS.

Nice little read at the link below regarding how power-hungry, money hungry, and how over-the-top some of these egomaniacs, narcissists and psychopaths involved in animal “rescue” and advocacy really are:

And to see what many of the callous primary players at “rescues” and animal welfare government agencies really think of the animal lovers and rescuers in the public sector, visit this not-so-nice link to a
Facebook page where these opportunists making money in rescue “vent” and make fun of sappy animal lovers and volunteers and illustrates these opportunists making money in animal rescue complete disdain and disrespect for them:

whose your daddy1

FOR THE SAKE OF TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY, the public absolutely NEEDS TO SEE PUBLICLY POSTED ALL of the affiliations, associations, partnering, etc that is going on (whose in bed with who so-to-speak) between TAXPAYER-FUNDED government agencies and DONATION-FUNDED animal rescues and sanctuaries, and also DONATION-FUNDED animal rights and animal welfare advocacy groups and organizations.

It is said that “money corrupts”, and no area is demonstrating that point more clearly than the DONATION-FUNDED animal rescue world, and in the DONATION-FUNDED animal welfare and animal rights advocacy factions – especially when they “partner” with government agencies and animal rights and advocacy groups with a corrupt agenda.

Some people may have started out with good and true intentions of wanting to help animals, and even the animals owners too.

But with the advent of social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter 10 or so years ago making marketing, PR, and fundraising FREE and EASY for anyone pretty much, but especially so for those people that have brilliant Internet skills who are perfectly willing to LIE, EMBELLISH, TRASH AND RUIN OTHER PEOPLE, along with a host of other equally despicable actions, a tragic majority of people appear to have succumbed to the siren-song of MONEY, POWER OVER OTHERS, CONTROL, and THE CELEBRITY OF ANIMAL RESCUE, and they threw away their ethics, honesty, compassion and empathy a long time ago (if they in fact ever had them in the first place and are people that have been running scams for years wherever the opportunity arises).

If they really are on the up-and-up, send them the information page and questionnaire at the link below, along with other reasonable questions you may have, and see if they fill it out and return it to you with answers to reasonable questions.

Short Form Information Page and Questionnaire For Animal Rescues

If they do complete it and send it back, great, its probably safe to support them.

But if they refuse to fill it out, ignore you, or even go on the attack on you for asking simple questions, its a good bet you should steer clear of them and perhaps even turn in complaints on them because SOMETHING ISN’T RIGHT WHEN PEOPLE WON’T ANSWER SIMPLE QUESTIONS.

Please do your part to keep greedy donation-funded “retail rescues” and power hungry donation-funded “rescuers”, “sanctuaries”, advocates, and advocacy groups on a tight leash.

Their primary players ALWAYS get paid, just as they continue to crack the whip concealed in sappy and insincere praise in order to keep their revolving-door of gullible, sheeple enabler volunteer-slaves that come and go all the time working for them for FREE.

People that do these seizures (often scams) need to be held to account for EVERYTHING THEY ARE DOING WHEN THEY DO A SEIZURE.

So if they refuse to answer simple questions contained on a 1 page information page and questionnaire and/or questions YOU may have, it is with a great degree of confidence that YOU can figure something rotten is going on.

And although YOU as an animal owner perhaps may think that a seizure scam could never happen to you, guess again and visit with people on People For Pet OWNership on Facebook at:

https://www.facebook.com/peopleforpetownership/?fref=nf

and also National Animal Interest Alliance at:

http://www.naiaonline.org/

because there are thousands upon thousands of animal owners around the world that have had their animals seized/stolen from them and they too NEVER thought it could happen to them either.

Even Honest Rescuers Aren’t Clued-In to the Seizure Scams Done By Retail Rescues – THAT NEEDS TO CHANGE!

Truth7

At the link below is a decently written blog post that addresses the “why’s” of why some animal owners get into a situation whereby they are unable to perhaps take care of their animals as well as they would like to:

http://annablakeblog.com/2015/11/06/are-you-an-advocate-for-horses/

An excerpt from the blog post:

“The thing all these scenarios have in common is that no one asked for help. Humans don’t like being seen as weak or failing. Most horse people pride themselves on being independent and resourceful. And then, if asking for help wasn’t hard enough, it can be hard to accept the help offered. Humans are complicated.

Once we ask, things can start to move. Family and neighbors step up. There are community resources like hay banks that offer help. Even deputies will lend a hand. I have such respect for people who humble themselves in deference to their animal’s welfare. It shows character.”

and then there is this excerpt:

“The other common statement that I hear is that someone just can’t be involved in helping because they love horses too much to look at the pictures; that hearing about it would just hurt them too much. Like somehow their love is just too pure to hear this kind of ugliness. Could you possibly think that those of us sitting in court are there because we love horses less than you do?

Do horses a favor; instead of loving them too much, love them just enough. Enough to offer help to a neighbor in need or enough to make the call to the authorities if necessary. Enough to be part of the solution. If you can’t take time off from work, then write letters to the media. Donate money, but if you don’t have a dime to spare, sign petitions, join groups, be informed. Love horses enough to bear witness. Love them enough to make positive change.”

Pathological Liar3

It was a good read until the end where the question is asked and statements are made somewhat chastising animal owners for not “asking for help” from their community, from an animal rescue, from a food bank for animal feed, etc.

While this particular rescuer might not ever in a million years go on the attack on animal owners just to pull in thousands of dollars in donations, acquire free animals she could sell for a profit, make herself look heroic at other peoples expense, there are in fact thousands of so-called rescuers that have literally infiltrated donation-funded animal rescue because of the vast LACK OF OVERSIGHT by agencies vested with regulating nonprofit animal rescues/sanctuaries/hospices that do those things, and even worse than that because they are unethical, narcissistic, sociopathic scammers and pathological liars out to make money and also a name for themselves in animal rescue.

And until honest animal rescuers are aware of what these “retail rescues” are doing operating in the rescue world running their con-games USING lies, innocent animals and gullible followers to do it, they should not be surprised to find out they will be painted with the same broad brush as the scammers in rescue UNLESS they are willing to “police their own” and “out” and “expose” the criminals operating in donation-funded animal rescue.

There is also the attitude in the blog post linked above that people that have no clue what’s going on with someone’s animals, they have no idea if someone’s  animals are just plain old, or they may have chronic or perhaps terminal health issues that renders them less than optimum looking, or any number of other things that are occurring, it doesn’t necessarily mean that someone’s animal/s need to be, or even want to be euthanized (think of your frail or decrepit Granny that still wants to live even if she’s skinny, tottering around, can’t “do” hardly anything at all anymore, etc but your Granny doesn’t want to be dead because of her age or aulments), are supposed to “contact the authorities’ ” and/or “the media” which in the current day rescue world can start a feeding frenzy of attack, bullying, and threats of bodily harm from strangers in the public against often innocent animal owners that are being portrayed as the worst kind of abusers and neglectors even when its not true.

Like many people that have perhaps been rescuing animals for several years who seem to be honest, compassionate rescuers, the reality is that the author of the blog post linked above may truly be the nicest, forthright, honest and giving rescuer someone would ever want to meet.
And they may well be willing to offer monetary help, or volunteer to do manual labor if someone is sick and/or injured and perhaps needs some help with their animals for a period of time.

Oversight6

However, MANY wonderful animal rescuers are completely unaware of how many “retail rescues” are operating in the new age rescue world of the past 10-12 years since the Internet and social media platforms attracted many people that are “opportunists” taking advantage of the free money making opportunities in animal rescue.

Those “opportunists” are not honest, they are not compassionate, and their bottom line is all about achieving money, accolades, praise, power, and control over other peoples lives and those of animals too.

The worst part is that they rally MOBS of people to attack perfect strangers on the Internet and on social media, they incite THEM to make phone calls to government agencies, the media, the humane society, spca’s and anyone else they can get to attack for them – and when a “seizure scam” attack goes down, it ruins innocent peoples lives, has animals being literally stolen from their owners, the animals are then “sorted” like sorting new merchandise, and then some animals that have issues which have brought in as much as possible on “sympathy/pity donations” that cannot be adopted-out (SOLD) are in fact killed or “disappeared” and NONE of them were really “helped” at all, nor were they owners that may have asked for help, but got attacked and destroyed instead.

As for the animals that are seized/stolen that don’t have any issues, they are OFTEN adopted-out (SOLD) within mere days of being seized because they didn’t need “”help” in the first place.

Scammers Get Caught7

What MANY people are unaware of, including long term honest and compassionate rescuers, is that quite often, the form of help being offered by “retail rescues” is for them to come in and do what’s called “cherry picking” whereby they choose the nicer animals without issues they can adopt-out (SELL) fairly quickly for a profit, leaving the animals owners keeping the decrepit “animals with issues” to take care of because those animals are often useless for anything.

Make no mistake, although the “retail rescue” tells people they “offered to help” the animals owners, their type of help is pretty much an extortion attempt of “let us choose the animals we’ll take off your hands, or else we’ll go public with your situation and we’ll take ALL of your animals no matter what condition they’re in. You will probably be arrested by the time we get done smearing and trashing you, and the mobs of complete strangers we incite to attack you on social media and message boards will help us do it after we post photos and videos of only your animals that are old, sick, chronically or terminally ill. So either let us take the ones we want, let us still trash you to an extent, or we will RUIN YOU”.

Don’t think this is how it goes in many of the instances of “retail rescues” offering their brand of help?

Well, it does happen this way, and more and more animal owners that are getting attacked on “seizure scams” are audio and video recording the extortion attempts, and in some cases, they got the extortion attempts in writing too.

When an animal owner is the target of attack, things happen very quickly, most people have no idea what is happening to them, they are being swarmed and assaulted by mobs of people on the Internet, they can’t think straight because they are being terrorized, so they don’t think to get things in writing and/or record things for proof of what was happening.
The whole “seizure scam” or “rescue raid” attack is so unreasonable and crazy, intelligent, honest, trusting people can’t wrap their minds around what is occuring because its so convoluted and out-of-control and there are no right answers when being attacked by complete strangers with no facts and who are attacking others based on what a “rescue” has told them or shown them.

Not even honest, compassionate, ethical rescues and rescuers realize that people that are scam-artists are running cons in animal rescue and making a very nice living from it even though they are often breaking the law and committing fraud, money laundering, misrepresentation, misappropriation of funds, and even racketeering (organized crime).

Unfortunately, with social media making marketing free and easy for anyone, those opportunists that are perfectly willing to lie, cheat, embellish, bully, threaten, and perpetrate Animal Enterprise Terrorism “seizure scams” and “rescue raids” on animal owners and also other rescues that perhaps take in the “animals with physical and/or behavioral/training issues at their rescues/sanctuaries/hospices are taking over the rescue world, and they will stop at nothing, and mow anyone or anything down in order to get the aforementioned rewards for the CAREER they have built for themselves in “animal rescue”.

At the link is a story done by John Stossel regarding “rescue raids” written in 2005 in the first wave of the rescue racket occurring:

http://abcnews.go.com/2020/story?id=817494

People that “ask for help” are very often targeted for attack by scammers in animal rescue, and because there is little-to-no- meaningful oversight in animal rescue that requires donation funded animal rescues to say exactly where all that free money they’re receiving in donations on “crisis rescues” (designated fundraisers wnen they run “seizure scams” or are importing animals they “say” need “rescuing” from other states or countries), or even WHERE exactly do all of the animals they are rescuing using others peoples money are ending up, animal dealers have infiltrated animal rescue and MANY animal owners are TOO AFRAID to ask for help because they may end having their lives destroyed instead.

Many animal owners that have the old granny horse that isn’t ready to be put down even though she may be tottering around, doesn’t have all her teeth, is looking a little “rugged”, but is still schooling the youngsters and she doesn’t want to be dead yet, are scared spitless they’ll be targeted for attack and ALL of their animals get seized, including their horses that are excellent for adopting-out/SELLING for a good PROFIT.
These scammers at “retail rescues” also run an “impound fee” racket where they vastly inflate boarding “management fees” fees”, vet fees, farrier fees, grooming fees, and whatever other made-up fees they come up with, to the point where even when owners that are found innocent of ANY wrongdoing are unable to pay the fees  exorbitant fees to get their horses or other animals back and the rescue than keeps them.

A case-in-point that is just one of MANY happening around the country and the world is the situation with Joshua Rockwood, a small sustainable farmer that had some animals seized last spring.

You can read about his story here:

So although there are still some good rescues out there that can and do help people down on their luck, who are ill, who have lost their job, etc, there are many more “retail rescues” popping up every day that are running scams, and trashing and destroying peoples lives, and also the lives of their un-useable animals that are seized and then killed or “disappeared” after their donation-value is exhausted.

Its basically hard to trust anyone because trusting the wrong people can and does lead to destruction and death for many animal owners and their USELESS animals that can’t be adopted with or without a fee and retail rescues aren’t “in the business” of caring for and maintaining animals they can’t “USE” for anything.

Animal owners that simply needed a little help from what they thought was an animal rescue that turned out to be animal dealers posing as a rescue are ruining peoples and animals lives every, single day.

Because so many animal owners are being attacked all over the world, there are Facebook pages formed to tell the other side of the story of animal rescue:

People For Pet OWNership is one of them at:

https://www.facebook.com/peopleforpetownership/?ref=br_rs

Even Dr. Don Henneke issued a statement before he passed away in 2012 regarding his weight assessment scale being misused by horse rescues seizing owners horses unjustly:

http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/showthread.php?347689-Dr-Henneke-issues-a-new-statement

There is also The Cavalry Group that was formed to provide a defense attorney for their members if they are targeted on a seizure scam attack:

http://thecavalrygroup.com/Who-We-Are

More and more victims of attack are also going on the offense after being attacked and are filing civil lawsuits against their attackers regarding defamation, extortion, threats of bodily harm, cyber bullying, etc.

Traitor2

Most people think that they could never be the victim of an attack by an animal rescue “partnering” with animal control.

But if you as an animal owner ever fall on hard times and are unable to find homes for your beloved animals because some of those animal may have “issues” of one kind or another, be very careful which rescue you ask for help from because you could very well end up being a victim of a seizure scam with all of the essential hoopla, excitement, media attention, and frenzy of what are called “crisis rescue” that bring in thousands upon thousands of FREE donation from the public that thrives on the DRAMA and EXCITMENT provide them with.

Retail rescues are also brilliant at lying and embellishing in order to ramp-up MOBS on the Internet to attack for them because that is a huge component for a successful seizure scam.

In closing, no one should ask for “help” from a rescue or anyone else BEFORE asking them some targeted questions FIRST.

And no one should ever join a mob attacking complete strangers and/or joining in assaults over the Internet until they FIRST ask the rescue, the animal control, the humane society, or an spca some targeted questions FIRST BEFORE you help them, support them, or donate to them.

Scams3

Some targeted questions to ask can be found on this 1 page information page and questionnaire located at the link below.

If the rescue and/or government agency the rescue is “partnering with” refuse to answer simple questions, DO NOT support or help them because you very well could later on find yourself on the receiving end of a civil lawsuit when you join in the attack of people you don’t even know based on information you were fed by a retail rescue up to no good for the animal owners, or the animals they profess to want to help.
