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:
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.
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:
and also National Animal Interest Alliance at:
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.
