The reason the issues of fraud, embezzlement, lack of travel documents, cruelty to animals, etc in the three separate cases came to light that are illustrated at the links above and below (a mere three examples of many more occurring with all different species of animals) is because people that actually care about animals
* became suspicious of the double-dealing and double-talk,
*suspicious of the distraction and deflection tactics used by deceptive “rescues”,
*suspicious of obvious bait and switch,
*suspicious of the obvious playing of “the shell game” with animals,
*suspicious of the lack of transparency regarding player rescues refusal to post fundraising and financial accounts,
*travel and health documents,
*suspicious of the lack of transparency and accountability regarding publicly posting vet reports for all of the animals that are being examined by the rescues vet according to the faux rescues,
*euthanasia reports that are tracking info on how many animals are being euthanized and the occurrence date,
etc, etc, etc.
These good and caring people that made those calls and sent those emails didn’t just play around and involve themselves in drama, rumors, gossip, and innuendo without facts on Facebook.
They instead picked up this device known as a telephone, and also used email instead of Twitter, Facebook, etc that most law enforcement agencies are too busy to look at, and they got in touch with law enforcement in large numbers.
They called and emailed with concerns, questions the rescues refused to answer when asked by nobodies in the public that they can ignore, figures that kept changing (called “fluid” or sometimes “eleventh hour saves” by the rescues that are running cons, which is actually fundraising fraud when running designated fundraisers for specific things), that didn’t make sense.
Too bad that SO MANY people want to have other people do the heavy lifting because they’re too damn lazy and apathetic to do it themselves.
They’re also fully involved in the drama just as much as the “rescues” they’re suspicious of, so they’re too busy with that excitement and entertainment to step away from social media and actually do something constructive regarding the scammers using animals to make a fortune that often ends with the hustlers in animal “rescue” (they’re animal dealers and not rescues at all), performing their disgusting habit of killing and disappearing animals after the animal/s isn’t/aren’t a cash cow for donation collection anymore.
Social media is good for some things such as socializing, making friends, joining groups regarding hobbies, advocacy, activities, or professions or work other people are also interested in.
It is also sometimes good for the collection of evidence, documentation, and proof and facts related to fraud, racketeering, extortion, money laundering, animal cruelty, etc.
But at some point, the time for social media needs to be put on the back burner and law enforcement is necessary, with them putting their professional investigators on the case, with the help of proof via emails, screenshots, PM’s, texts, etc sent by the concerned party/s that went the extra mile to contact law enforcement agencies.
Facebook and other social media platforms are like “palace politics” on steroids, so continue to play your cloak and dagger games if it turns you on, but at some point, IF you really care about the animals that are being USED to make a fortune by cruddy, low-end swindlers posing as animal rescues that dispose of innocent animals once their use and purpose is finished, you will make the calls, send the emails and speak to local, regional, state, and federal agencies. They can, and will with enough pressure from multiple people and/or organizations, do something if enough people apprise them of critical situations that in the end really is a matter of life, but more often death for animals at the blood-stained hands of the betrayers that ‘say’ they are rescuers.
Their actions speak much louder than the lying words their ignorant, true believer followers eat up like the dumb sheeple they are, but with enough concern and caring from real animal lovers, the sheeple have a way of disappearing because they don’t have a factual leg to stand on.
