Attention Animal Owners: The Time Is Now to Educate Yourself Regarding Retail Rescues, Rescue Raids and Kill-Shelter “Rescues”

This is a “buffet-blog-post”; read small portions and come back for more……or don’t……… your choice.

Step 1 has already been covered in this blog in previous blog posts.

Step 1 is asking non-accusatory questions of the primarily, or entirely donation-funded animal rescue organizations and expecting answers that should be easy for the primary participants at the rescue to answer if they are legitimate.

The blog post at the link below covers Step 2 if and when answers to simple questions are not forthcoming from the actual animal rescue organization that *may* actually be a “retail rescue”/animal dealers posing as an animal rescue.

Animal Rights1

Remember: Questions, even ones that are not accusatory, asked of “retail rescues” are what kryptonite is to Superman or water is to the Wicked Witch of the West: it exposes and destroys them.

Refusing to answer simple, non-accusatory questions does make them suspect because answering simple questions should be easy:

https://4graceandtruth.wordpress.com/2015/08/10/step-2-bring-the-fight-for-animals-lives-to-the-rescues-by-questioning-their-enabler-groupies/

Examples of some questions that should be asked are on the questionnaire posted at the end of this blog post and on several other blog posts written on this topic.

One of many sure signs of suspicious donation-funded animal rescues is their evasiveness in answering simple, non-accusatory questions.

Because of so much evasive, suspicious behavior of refusing to answer simple, legitimate questions that go-to their “transparency”, animal owners must wake-up and realize an Animal Enterprise Terrorism (AET) attack aka “seizure scam” perpetrated on them by a donation-funded animal rescue could happen to them, and they will be tried in the court of “public-social media opinion” without the facts!

The organizers of these type of attacks, always a donation-funded animal “rescue”, humane society, or spca that very well may be in collusion with your own handy-dandy local animal control/shelter, are neither operated by animal welfare nor animal rights people – they are “opportunists”, with a “pinch” of “caring about animals” in their own ($$$$) way (they must sprinkle in at least a few good acts because the most gullible people would eventually catch on to the fraud), taking advantage of an opportunity they’ve created, like the Wizard of Oz behind-the-curtain pulling the levers, manipulating and sensationalizing events for a bored public.

However, they do inflame “do-gooders” in the public on social media forums and message boards that often are animal rights and animal welfare people that don’t check facts but can be counted on to “make noise in numbers” that every opportunist needs in order to pull-off a “crisis rescue” and a “seizure scam”.

They get the “social media madness mob” to do their dirty work for them, add in mainstream media that rarely fact-check anymore and take the bait of a sensationalized story to run on their local “news”, and all they have to do to keep the “enabler-groupies/cheerleaders” inflamed is “stir-that-pot” with more inflammatory rhetoric as part of their carefully planned domestic terrorism attack on an animal owner.

Check out this blog post on YesBiscuit regarding a non-profit “animal coalition” (“rescue”) vested with the operation of animal controls/shelters and their horribly cruel treatment of animals there (its a disturbing read; sensitive people may not want to read the YesBiscuits blog posts describing it), manipulating the numbers of animals “adopted” and killing them instead – same thing far too many donation-funded adoption-based “rescues” do and that is a primary reason they won’t reveal concise counts of animals they have “rescued” and what’s become of them:

https://yesbiscuit.wordpress.com/2015/08/20/more-on-united-animal-coalition-allegations/

Quote from the blog at the link above:

“A Guilford Co pound volunteer told the Rhino that Davidson Co, the more recent contract awarded to UAC, was under greater scrutiny than Guilford Co.  In an effort to make Davidson’s numbers look good quickly, UAC set up a racket whereby dogs from the Davidson pound were sent to Guilford for killing and counted as adoptions on their way out of Davidson.  Hey, they went out the front door, technically.  I guess they were “adopted” by Fatal Plus at Guilford.”

Steps 3 and 4 of how to identify and ‘out’ “retail rescues” to follow shortly because that’s the direction many primarily, or entirely donation-funded rescues are forcing it to go.

This is an International problem and all animal owners are at risk of having an Animal Enterprise Terrorism (AET) attack aka “rescue raids” or “seizure scams” perpetrated on them by a donation-funded and often adoption-based animal “rescue” aka “retail rescue” that are believed to be animal dealers, traders, brokers, or “flippers” posing as animal rescues.

 

These “opportunists” and scammers are aggressively operating in the “animal rescue industry” (as many of them call it) because of the vast lack of oversight.

This is especially true if an animal owner has elderly, frail, acutely or chronically ill animals, or even animals with a moderate amount of arthritis and/or other age, use, or old-injury related issues, co-existing with “the good and healthy animals” because it makes the owner a target for abuse, neglect, and cruelty accusations from those who are “up to no good” and are certainly not wanting to “help the animals in place” where they live as honest rescues do.

Having “good condition” animals co-mingling with the “not-so-good” animals opens the door for a “retail rescue” to “cherry-pick” someone’s good animals they can sell, and also take (under the guise of “helping”) animals that are great for getting in “sympathy/pity donations” that brings in ALOT of $$$$ and then those animals are often killed or “vanished” when they have exhausted their “donation-value” because they can’t be “adopted”/sold because of their “physical issues”.

In the topsy-turvy ass-backwards “down the rabbit hole” unreality in “rescue-land”, its as if no one thinks it through and acknowledges that just like with humans, animals can and do have physical and/or health issues related to a multitude of conditions, age, illness, etc. Illogical/ignorant people think that all animals are always going to look just dandy. But when the people acting aggressive and making a bunch of noise about the way some animals look is combined with an agenda that most people don’t yet understand, it creates the “perfect storm” for a “crisis rescue”, with donation-money flooding into “the retail rescues” coffers that “the rescue” currently doesn’t have to account for.

Often heard from the peanut-gallery-mob are the words “why didn’t those people (the animal owners) ask for help?” or “they should have asked for help!” – that is like inviting the fox into the henhouse if “the wrong rescue” that specializes in “seizures” and “crisis rescues” (that bring in a lot of donations) are asked for help.

Retail rescues are not in the least interested in doing “behind-the-scenes” “no-fanfare” rescuing because that kind of real rescuing of helping the animals and animal owner right where they live doesn’t have a big pay day. In fact, they usually have to spend money they don’t want to spend in order to really help without trashing the animal owner, involving the media, ramping up ignorant “noise and numbers” mobs, etc.

Some animal owners have seen what happens when some of these “rescues” are asked for “help”, so if an animal owner needs help, a “rescue” is often the last people they’d ask for help because of the fear of being attacked, dragged through the mud, having animals seized, being arrested once the sensationalized story, photos, posts, comments, etc are plastered all over the Internet, mainstream media, etc.

So its basically “too bad, so sad” if an animal owner is taking care of an ill, old, or less than optimum condition animal that isn’t suffering and wants to live because:

  1. if and when your nasty neighbor that doesn’t like you sees them and they use tax-payer-funded animal control as a weapon against you to call in a “false report”,
  2. and/or someone that’s “with” a retail rescue trolls by your place and observes an unhealthy-looking animal, or maybe more than one, but certainly not all the animals you own (and you’re not trying to “hide animals” from anyone because you’re not doing anything wrong and are taking good care of all of your animals), mixed in with “sellable” animals and that self-same “rescue” let’s animal control know they’re “there to help with a seizure or animal surrender”,
  3. the next thing the animal owner knows, they could have tax-payer-funded animal control combined and in collusion with a publicly-donation-funded “retail rescue” harassing them and trying to get them to surrender animals.
  4. Or, they may just seize all the animals and then charge the owner exorbitant “impound fees”,
  5. And a million counts of “whatever” the weasels can think up that will cause the most harm financially and emotionally to the animal owner
  6. so they are confused, scared, and too broke to be able to hire a decent attorney to defend them against the seizure scam attack.

One more huge problem; most defense and civil lawsuit attorney’s, DA’s, Judges, and law enforcement agencies don’t even know or understand what these attacks are all about.

This is why it’s up to animal owners to be pro-active and educate the legal system and law enforcement on what retail rescues and AET attacks aka “seizure scams” and “rescue raids” are before it happens to the animal owner because then it is mostly too late to educate anyone.

In other words, if an animal owner has acutely and/or chronically ill animals, older more frail animals, “special needs” animals with defects, deformities, conditions, animals that have picked up diseases or conditions the animal owner is addressing, etc, inform your local animal control and other branches of city, town, county government agencies so there is no appearance of “trying to hide” anything.

More up-coming in future blog posts regarding the steps animal owners can take in order to be pro-active, be prepared, and also defend ones-self and go on the offense if they are targeted by a donation-funded animal rescue as the next victim of a “crisis rescue” and “seizure scam”.

It’s high-time scammer rescues are not only run out of the animal rescue ranks, but also investigated, prosecuted, fined, and even jailed.

The only way this will happen is if the public stays focused, stays on-point, and is relentless in asking primarily, or entirely donation-funded “rescues” questions and expecting answers.

Too many animals that are supposed to be “rescued” by these people are instead used for their “donation-value” and when that is exhausted, they are “de-valued” and convenience-killed rather than take care of them, maintain them, and let them live peacefully.

And do not be surprised in your pursuit of truth that some of these scam-artists you’re asking questions of may try to befriend you (kiss-ass, brown-nosing) in order to make you stop – don’t buy it, for it is the classic survival-behavior of narcissists/sociopaths trying to save themselves – alas, as soon as they feel safe from you and you’ve fallen for their creepy “friendship”, they will revert back to their in-grained behavior of “working it” and using people and animals.

Similar to these lines in the movie Terminator describing cyborgs:

“It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.”

Nearly a spot-on accurate description of some “people” involved in privatized (it’s all about the $$$$ – the celebrity – the control – the praise – the publicity – the power) donation-funded animal rescue.

“Retail rescues” modus operandi (MO) is to identify an animal owner target first (good-looking animals mixed in with animals with physical issues i.e. old age, fragility, acute illness, chronic illness/conditions, etc), researching them to an extent and trying to be as sure as they can be that the target will probably NOT be able to afford legal representation on the defense and/or the offense.

In other words, they wouldn’t attack Donald Trump or Oprah because “the rescue” would be mashed in a heartbeat into the legal-ground-zero-zone and would be destroyed.

Once they have identified their target, “the rescue” will often attempt extortion first by “telling” their target “we want to help” (yeah right) and they “won’t go public” if the animal owner gives up animals of the “rescues” choosing (cherry picking”).

But whether the victim complies with their demands, or refuses to be extorted and tells them to “take a hike”, or deals with “the rescue” in other more intelligent ways, the results are the same.

NOTE: since MOST animal owners have never experienced the domestic terrorism phenomenon called “seizure scams” or “rescue raids” that privatized donation-funded animal rescues have a lot of motivation – $$$$$ – to perpetrate on animal owners, most animal owners have no idea how fast this can turn into a mob-attack, swarm and witch-hunt on social media, with posts, comments, emails, phone calls, PM’s being fired off to government agencies and the media “telling” them they need to “do something now”. Reasonable people do not immediately take it seriously because it seems so unreasonable and ignorant. They usually find out very quickly how “down the rabbit hole” and whacked-out these attacks ARE, and how terrorizing and potentially life-ruining it is.

At the helm of many donation-funded rescues and “retail rescues” are individuals that may well be narcissists, and also sociopaths, that literally “believe their own press”, and are “addicted” to being the center of attention and will seek that attention, and also money and control over others, via many avenues which include embellishing, lying, playing the victim, back-stabbing former friends and associates, using other people and animals as props and pawns, and even breaking the law.

So in order to move the scam forward, “the “rescue” “goes public”, gets media involved (a primary element of this scam), they ramp-up “social media madness mobs” (another primary component of the scam) to cyber-attack the victims and bombard local, regional, and state government to “do something”, and since law enforcement, DA’s, AG’s, and other government agencies want to appease the frenzied, ignorant hoards, and they also aren’t usually up-to-speed regarding what these “rescue raids” and “seizure scams” really are, they often go after their own tax-paying citizens, and arrest, investigate and often prosecute them.

Even without the prosecution aspect when investigation proves there were no illegalities present, the “retail rescue” has reaped the benefits, gotten thousands of dollars in free money donations, gotten free material goods and supplies, gotten free animals they collect donations on and then sell or kill the “useless animals with issues”, and they got “the Big P” – free publicity.

Precluding prosecution, the innocent victim that was not breaking the laws for the county, city, or state, either owes thousands of dollars of vastly inflated impound fee’s to “the rescue” and/or their animals have been sold, or they were “euthanized” and/or “vanished” by “the rescue”.

The animals they kill or “vanish” couldn’t be sold or given away because of physical and/or behavioral issues they had. The rescue however refuses to let the animal/s live because they don’t want to spend money on “broken merchandise” animals and/or because the animal will always look bad because of physical and/or medical issues they have and these “rescues” boast a high rehabilitation rate, so no cruddy looking animals that can’t be rehabilitated are allowed to live that might sully their sterling reputation.

Case in point of an unjustified attack on an animal owner and the exposure of “the rescue” charging vastly inflated impound fee’s:

http://www.bedlamfarm.com/2015/05/07/the-joshua-rockwood-files-the-cruelest-animal-of-all/

Quoted from the blog at the link:

 “His horses were taken to a nearby horse rescue farm, the same farm that was present during the police raid. To even consider getting his horses back, the rescue farm is asking for $7,500 in boarding and administrative and medical costs for the first 30 days alone. Since they have been on the rescue farm for nearly three months, it may cost him more than $22,000 to get his three horses returned, even if he is found innocent of all of the charges.”

The animal “rescue” makes out like a bandit and has thousands upon thousands of donation-dollars they don’t have to account for pouring into their rescue accounts because of the massive social- and mainstream-media coverage they whipped-up in mere hours.

Then its “on to the next” attack, or the next fictional-fantasy sob-story “rescue” where the whole story is never told told.

This kind of stuff happens when there is a lack of meaningful oversight of primarily, or entirely donation-funded animal rescues that collect free money donations, free material items, and free animals they either “adopt”/sell or euthanize if the animal is “useless with issues”.

These types of “animal rescues” are not rescues at all. They are simply your garden-variety “opportunists” taking advantage of an “opportunity” in an unregulated industry called “donation-funded animal rescue” that has little-to-no-oversight.

There is no scrutiny of their financials, and just as important, there is no scrutiny regarding what happens to all of the animals they “rescued”.

They are similar, if not the same, as generational welfare recipients/families running long- and short-cons that “work the system” for years and years, obtain free money, free material goods, other free items (animals in the case of “retail rescues”, calling the other free stuff “donations”), and then they can sell those free items and/or spend their free money any way they choose that they received under the guise of “we are poor”, “we have children to feed” (“the hook”), “we’re disabled and can’t work”, etc.

“Retail-welfare rescues” do the same thing using animals as “the hook” to “sell” people on “helping” them.

And the primary reason they get away with their schemes and scams is because of the vast lack of oversight by those vested with over-seeing registered non-profit donation-funded animal rescues at government agencies.

The fact is that most people lose interest in pursuing filing complaints because they feel they are wasting their time and/or they don’t want to become a target themselves of these ruthless opportunists, that frequently are narcissists/sociopaths too, that wreak havoc with peoples and animals lives without a second thought regarding the emotional and financial destruction and ruin.

These types of “animal rescues” may as well be high kill rate animal controls/shelters considering how many innocent animals they collect “sympathy/pity” donations on and then kill or “vanish” to only-they-know-where.

Calling themselves “a rescue” allows them to wheel-and-deal to their hearts content because they do not (currently) have to answers from the supportive donating public if they don’t feel like it.

Additionally, the government agencies vested with over-seeing them are out-of-touch with the various scams and schemes they are running that are targeting the donating public and animal owners and using animals as props and pawns.

Many “rescues” also have unlicensed, unregulated transporters hauling animals hither-and-yon that may, or may not have the correct commercial insurance to cover accidents such as this one at the link:

Please Share this blog post if after reading this post, and others dealing with this tragic problem in animal rescue, you agree that legitimate animal rescues that will answer questions, animal owners, Attorney General’s, District Attorney’s, and other government agencies and law enforcement need to unite and put a stop to “retail rescues” “workin’-it” in the unregulated animal rescue “industry”.

Remember, this is all about the donation-funded rescues “showing and not just telling” people what they feel like telling, and also about the supportive public being bamboozled by scam-artists diversion tactics too.

Accountability and “transparency” are key in separating the legitimate, honest rescues from the “opportunists” and scammers operating in animal rescue for their own gain and profit and killing and “vanishing” animals after they’ve callously used-them-up.

The questionnaire below gives some ideas of what questions to ask your favorite rescue, a rescue you are contemplating supporting, or perhaps a donation-funded animal rescue you are suspicious of because of their evasiveness in answering simple questions, or because their true believer enabler-followers attack anyone that does ask polite, non-confrontational, non-accusatory, legitimate questions publicly, or people that ask questions become a target for harassment, bullying, threats, false reporting, etc:

​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.

INTERVENTION — Reality Show Rescue Addicts – How YOU Are Killing the Animals

conartists9
This is an Intervention.
It probably won’t work, but for the sake of innocent animals, we must at least try.
Unfortunately, social media has made fundraising, marketing, and PR free and easy for donation-funded “welfare animal rescues”.
We are not speaking of the welfare of animals, oh no, far from it. Instead, these “rescues” are exactly like welfare recipients that supposedly “can’t find a job” and/or like scammers that say they can’t work but they are not disabled. Since they are often really good actors, they have fake accidents with them playing the part of the victim – i.e. the “slip and fall accident” is the classic “accident” and one that most everyone has heard of. The scam-artists “work the system” committing fraud and collecting as much free money as they can before starting in with other scams.
Some, perhaps many of the operators of animal rescues are the garden-variety con-artists that have come out of their holes because there are literally MILLIONS of “marks” and “addicts” on social media they can con money out of using animals as “the hook” and “donation-bait”.
conartists7
They use and exploit animals AND gullible people who literally become addicted to reality-show-fakery as their primary source of entertainment (these people must live pathetically sad, miserable, boring little lives to be sucked-in by the players that run these scams).
People that follow these “rescues” that assuredly aren’t animal rights or animal welfare rescues unless “rescuing” animals includes conning money out of people and then disposing of animals “wherever”, are NOT animal lovers even though they may actually believe they are.
conartists14
Why are they not really animal lovers? For the fundamental reason that they really don’t care to know where EVERY ANIMAL the reality-show-rescue that USES other peoples money to operate (the primary players at the pretend-rescue don’t have jobs, so they can’t operate their “rescue” unless fools send them money they don’t have to account for) they follow “rescues” ends up weeks, months, or a year after “rescue”.
The so-called “animal lovers” also don’t care to know if the animal is dead or alive once its been swallowed up by the “rescue”.
And most astonishing is the fact that all a person needs are two eyes and a normally functioning brain in order to determine that these “rescues” aren’t presenting the non-glamorous “reality” of rescue much of the time.
They are presenting entertainment, pretend, fantasy-fiction for the viewers enjoyment, and more importantly for people who have made their “careers rescuing, they provide fast-paced, ever-changing drama, emergencies, sympathy-eliciting stories for the primary purpose of loosening their followers purse strings.
The honest facts related to real rescuing are that its often intensive, hard work taking care of multiple animals, there isn’t usually drama and excitement every day, and real rescuers OFTEN work at non-rescue-related jobs in order to be the primary financial provider for the animals they have taken responsibility for so in the event that no donations or outside financial help came in at all, the animals would still have their critical needs met and the rescuers just wouldn’t be able to drive nicer vehicles (what are those?), get cosmetic surgery (for what reason? The animals don’t care what a person looks like), take vacations to exotic locales (vacations are so few and far between for real rescuers, they can’t remember the last time they “went someplace” on vacation), buy the trendy, expensive handbag or sunglasses (some really nice things can be found at thrift stores), etc.
Sure, the “addicted-ones” will tell people they “asked questions” of the “rescue”, however, their questions are OFTEN answered with vagueness by the animal dealers posing as a rescue with pretend answers such as “they were adopted”, “they’re in a foster home”, or “they’re at the trainers”, and golly-gosh, that’s good enough for the naive, ignorant, addicted chumps.
Flattery3
Far be it for them to ask for current photos and/or videos. And of course they never ask to see vet reports their reality-show-rescue should have because “every animal is examined by the vet upon intake”. So when a “bone is thrown” to these dumb, addicted people and the “rescue” periodically posts a vet report, or shows photos or videos of animals in their new home, well hot damn, they’ve been shown things and in their non-animal loving addicts minds, that’s good enough for them. Its good enough for these dumb people to the extent that even when a “rescue” has “rescued” hundreds of animals in a year that donation money paid for securing the animal and to pay for their on-going care, throwing the addicted morons a bone and showing a couple of photos, a video here and there, or a vet report is still good enough for them to not question where in the hell are ALL of the several hundred other animals?
These addicted buffoons, like addicts everywhere, aren’t going to rock that boat by pushing for answers to questions regarding hundreds of animals their favorite rescue “rescued” in a years time.
The reason they don’t ask in-depth questions they expect answers for?  Because addicts can’t take the chance their “supplier” the reality-show-rescue that keeps them entertained cuts them off from that entertainment, drama and camaraderie  they are addicted to. They sure as hell don’t want to be shunned, blocked, or even bullied and threatened by other addicted-follower-chumps.
conartists12
Normally it wouldn’t be a big deal if people were/are addicted to a reality show because the players in the show are there of their own free will to make money, to get attention because many of them are narcissists, etc.
However, in the case of donation-funded reality-show-animal-rescue, the primary players, innocent animals USED as “donation-bait”, are being used and exploited in order for the scam-artists in animal rescue to earn obscene amounts of money they don’t have to account for because they always have multiple accounts people send money to, they love the accolades, and they love having brain-washed addicts to sic on anyone that is “giving them trouble” – you know, like the real animal lovers that keep pressing for answers regarding where rescued animals are, are they alive or dead, and if dead, where are the vet and euthanasia reports relating why the rescued animal that donations attained and are supposed to be used for their on-going care were killed?
'Why should I go out in the real world when I have so much reality TV?'
None of this will probably have an impact, or will change the behavior of the non-animal-loving addicts because they are lost to their addiction and most of them don’t think they need help.
This information is for the real animal lovers who are perhaps uncertain of what’s going on and are kind of sitting the fence on this issue.
Please do ALL of the “rescued animals” what could be a life-saving favor and have the courage to ask in-depth questions of “rescues” that say they are “transparent” and “an open book”. When they write stuff like that, a registered nonprofit MUST answer questions. It is unlawful for them not to.
Please be brave enough to pursue answers. Don’t let the bullies at the “rescue” and their addicted followers shout you down. Like bullies and mobs everywhere, they count on the fact that “you don’t want trouble” or “its not my problem” and you’ll leave them alone.
Its understandable to be afraid of being bullied, harassed, stalked, and maybe even threatened by mobs of addicted-followers.
Seriously, the fake rescues getting away with scamming isn’t totally their fault. After all, con-artists are the same everywhere and they’ve been around since humans have walked the Earth.
conartists5
The people that are to blame for why these scams work are the naive, gullible, and yes, addicted people that so badly want to be a part of the “team”, and they have a need to be entertained at the expense of innocent animals because they are lacking something in their own lives and they live vicariously through the excitement the scammer’s provide them with every time they “tune-in” online.
All that being said however, the true victims are the animals that are being used for criminal and personal profit and gain by people portraying themselves as animal lovers and rescuers.
The innocent animals can’t defend themselves, they don’t have a voice, and its a horrible tragedy AND betrayal of the worst kind when they are used to gain money and then killed and disappeared like broken merchandise when the con-artists in rescue are done using them and need “fresh merchandise” (to sell while calling it “adoption”) and ‘donation-bait’ animals (you know, the ones that are paraded around as “donation-bait” even if they’re in pain)  to create drama out of so their addict-followers can get their “fix”.
Animal Rights1
If you really love animals, please don’t turn your back on them. Please don’t let the “bad actors” get away with playing the role of the victim that have so many “haters” out “to get them”. These women (few men) can turn on the waterworks any time, any place they need to in order to get sympathy from their addict-followers when all they really need to do is ANSWER QUESTIONS REGARDING WHERE ALL OF THE ANIMALS THEY RESCUED IN THE PAST YEAR USING DONATION MONEY ARE, AND ARE THEY ALIVE OR DEAD. Yes, it IS that simple. People that are organized enough to have multiple admin’s, many volunteers, they submit grant applications, they do photo ops and live video feeds, they have “teams” for everything you can think of, they enter contests, they have merchandise to buy of all different types, and on and on, are CERTAINLY organized enough to KNOW where every, single animal they “rescued” in the past year are, and are they alive or dead.
So don’t let them get away with any more fakery of them playing the victim/s because they are NOT. They use the pathetic victim role in order to distract people from pursuing answers, and the only victims when they are allowed to get away with their BS are the animals that are supposed to be safe in rescue, and often are not.
Instead of letting them “work you”, ask questions regarding where ALL of the animals a donation-funded rescue has “rescued” currently are weeks, months, and a year after the animal was rescued. Responsible rescues have that information and will also be happy to provide current date-stamped photos and/or videos of every single animal they rescued using donor money.
And if the animal is dead, responsible rescues will provide vet and euthanasia reports that relate why it was the option chosen.

Please be a Champion for rescued animals, don’t turn your back on them because some freak con-artists threaten you.
The so-called “rescued animals” are counting on real and true animal lovers to be their voice – especially if they have fallen into the hands of the new breed and trend in rescue of reality-show-rescues that have addicted followers that really don’t care what ultimately happens to the animals and are only interested in getting their excitement and entertainment “fix” in order to deal with their often mundane, boring lives.
Do Something1
One last thing if you decide to be a Champion for animals: start creating a paper trail of screengrabs and correspondence of you politely asking a donation-funded rescue questions regarding the animals they’ve “rescued” using donation money.
Their dodging, evasion to answering your questions, and lying will leave no doubt in the minds of investigators that somethings “hinkey” as you begin at the local level where the rescue is located and keep walking up the ladder to the regional, state, and federal complaint level if necessary.
Many people hit a brick wall at the local level when filing complaints because of “one hand washing the other”, incentives, friendships in law enforcement, etc.
So document everything, keep files so that when it is time to complain on behalf of the animals being used and disposed of, you can go beyond the local level, get beyond that corruption, and show investigators that you really did try to stay local with your concerns, but the almost incestuous local corruption was impossible to get past.
Truth7
Do it for the animals because with reality-show-social-media-rescuing as the money-making trend the past several years using animals as “donation-bait”, there are thousands upon thousands of animals every year that are being USED and then eliminated like they never existed at all.
With true animal lovers help, the scammer-rescues can be exposed and eliminated, allowing the rescues that love animals to flourish…….but that won’t happen until real and true animal lovers unite, take a stand, and take action on behalf of all of the animals that need your help.

Lyin’, Lying, Pathological Liars Operating in Donation-Funded FOR-PROFIT Animal Rescue – Kill Shelters

AKA – They kill and disappear innocent animals, don’t they?

 

Everyone watches the vile pattern of behavior unfold, as many primarily, or entirely donation-funded animal rescues-kill shelters, that are no better than generational welfare (FREE money) recipients workin’-it in the unregulated free-for-all that is the social media arena, attain more, and more, and more animals using donation money, and then refuse to tell the public WHERE IN THE HELL ARE ALL OF THE ANIMALS DISAPPEARING TOO and/or WHY ARE YOU KILLING RESCUED ANIMALS WITHOUT SHOWING VET REPORTS DETAILING WHY THE ANIMAL MUST BE PUT-DOWN?!?!?

It begs the question “why isn’t the concerned animal loving public doing more to get answers regarding the WHEREABOUTS of animals that are supposed to be safe at rescues that attained the animals through the USE of donation money?”

 

Here’s why, and if you don’t believe this is a primary reason people don’t pursue answers, go ahead and ask questions of your favorite donation-funded rescue that attains a lot of animals whose whereabouts are unknown mere days or months from when they were rescued:

ALL of the donation-funded “rescues” that tend to attain a lot of animals, but then won’t account for EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM after being attained with donated funds, have “enablers” and cult-members ready and willing to go on the attack on behalf of their gurus at the rescue – kill shelter they are ignorant followers of.

These nasty, vicious, chump followers can be counted on to go on the attack on people that ask simple, concise, straight-forward questions that honest rescues using donated funds to rescue and take care of animals will happily answer.

It’s quite easy to separate the real and good donation-funded animal rescues from the shady ones, that often are lowlife animal dealers posing as “rescues”;

all one needs to do is ask straight-forward, targeted questions and see if they readily answer, or instead they go into evasion-mode, they sic their brainwashed, idiotic, but vicious like a rabid dog cult followers on you, you have bogus false reports filed against you by “anonymous complainants, and other equally nasty things occur suddenly.

These sub-humans can be counted on to bully, threaten, belittle, defame, threaten, stalk, and even call in “false reports” (which is ILLEGAL by the way) to taxpayer-funded government agencies.

This is a quote from an expert on stalking:

“Organized Gang Stalking is a form of terrorism used against an individual in a malicious attempt to reduce the quality of a person’s life so they will:

have a nervous break-down, become incarcerated, institutionalized, experience constant mental, emotional, or physical pain, become homeless, and/or commit suicide.

This is done using well-orchestrated accusations, lies, rumors, bogus investigations, setups, framings, intimidation, overt or covert threats, vandalism, thefts, sabotage, torture, humiliation, emotional terror and general harassment.

It is a “ganging up” by members of the community, and via the Internet, who follow an organizer and participate in a systematic “terrorizing” of an individual.

Organized gang stalking can involve a group in the hundreds to thousands harassing a single person or family 24/7. The victim is stalked en masse by car, foot, bike, air and Internet in order alienate and isolate the victim. 

The goals of gang stalking are to:

Provoke the victim to assault someone and get arrested; 

Make the victim seem delusional/ mentally ill (see “gaslighting”);

Make the victim so depressed they become suicidal. 

Tactics used are relentless color harassment, noise harassment, air harassment, hand signals, electronic monitoring inside the home and car (complete invasion of privacy; 

redirecting of phone calls, emails, postal mail),

via social media, workplace mobbing, “directed conversation” and innuendo,

erratic/ aggressive driving, bizarre/rude/bullying behavior in the community, and much more.

This is extreme criminal activity that is becoming more common and needs to be outlawed.”

As more and more animal lovers donate and support rescues from afar (they follow the rescue via social media because they live hundreds, if not thousands of miles away – and if not for social media they do their carnie-fund-raising on to finagle money out of naive “marks”, MOST of these “retail rescues” wouldn’t even be in business – whereby they are not at the rescue facility to keep track of where the rescued animals are, more and more of these people are asking targeted questions regarding the “rescued animals” whereabouts and wellbeing.

Additionally, people are asking for documentation such as:

*vet reports that fundraisers were run to pay for veterinary services for the rescued animals,

*vet reports and euthanasia reports describing WHY an animal HAD to be put down,

*itemized vet bills for each particular horse the “rescue says” their vet is looking at, examining, and evaluating,

*number of animals rescued in the past year and current, date – stamped photos of the animals showing their condition,

*numbers of adoptions in the previous month featuring current photos of the animals in their new home,

*receipts for vet care,

*feed for animals,

*body disposal bills.

Very telling is when a primarily, or entirely donation-funded (as opposed to a primarily, or entirely self-funded animal rescue whose operators pay for everything, or most everything pertaining to the rescue with their own money) animal rescue becomes evasive, refuses to answer simple questions and provide documentation they should have.

A huge red flag is when the rescues true believer cult followers begin assaulting people asking questions by bullying, belittling, threatening, stalking, using foul, inappropriate language, name calling, and also calling in false reports to taxpayer-funded government agencies (illegal, but this happens A LOT).

If, or when this happens, the person being assaulted should start collecting screenshots of the lack of answers to their questions posed to the rescue, and also of the assaults by thug-followers of the “rescue” ‘gang bullying”, which will be sent to various law enforcement and other government agencies such as the Attorney Generals and Secretary of States offices that are in charge of investigating nonprofit animal rescues, along with detailed written complaints.

If more animal lovers would follow-through regarding asking questions that are supposed to be rescued, and also file complaints to the appropriate government agencies regarding animals that are supposed to be “rescued and safe” uthrough the use of asked for, and received “designated donations”, there would/will be far fewer “bad apple opportunist rescues” out for personal profit and gain USING animals as “props” and “bait”, and the rescues doing real rescue that they are not profiting and gaining from would get more much needed support.

Be sure to also include the entire Board of Directors for the rescue because even if unaware of wrongdoing, they are just as culpable as the people doing the shady and/or illegal activities at the rescue.

The Board of Directors are supposed to act as “checks and balances” for the rescue, so even if they aren’t “hands on” at the rescue, they are still supposed to be aware of the operations at the rescue.

Animal lovers in the public:

Don’t be sucked in, and become addicted to the entertain, excitment, and drama  that is spoon-fed to you by showboating, reality show-type animal rescues that are often operated by extreme narcissists, “puffers”, pathological liars, and even sociopaths that mostly care about themselves and not anything, or anyone else.

Real and honest animal rescue is not fireworks and drama – instead, the real, everyday rescuing and caring for rescued animals are labors of love, and is often about as exciting and entertaining as watching grass grow or paint dry.

In other words, don’t be the fool that’s born everyday and fall for what the opportunists and connivers in donation-funded rescue are trying to sell you in the form of drama and entertainment that you can live vicariously through them to rev-up the somewhat mundane daily life you lead.

True animal lovers couldn’t care less about being entertained, or living vicariously through the “actors” in donation-funded animal rescue because their primary concern and bottom-line is ALWAYS for the animals that are rescued, and also WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM AFTER THEY ARE RESCUED, so the manic antics of the “rescuers” at a reality-show-type “rescue” is mere distraction and smoke-and-mirrors designed to distract and deceive.

Why the SAFE ACT Will Never Pass (if things don’t change……)

the safe act1

 

Its really very simple: the SAFE ACT will never pass as long as certain factors don’t change.

Why you sincerely, albeit naively, may ask?

Because if laws that are already in place that outlaw and ban any type of horse slaughter dealings are NOT being enforced even when they have been in place for several years in only a few states (much easier to enforce), why would anyone think that laws in place Nationwide banning slaughter in the United States, and that also ban the export of American horses out of the country for slaughter, will have any chance of being enforced countrywide?

As it stands now, there appear to be far too many horse rescues in the United States that have a business model that utilizes the threat of horses going to slaughter in order to collect free donation money, they constantly USE that threat, they NEED that threat, of horses being purchased by kill buyers at livestock “kill sales” and horse sales to coax, wring and wrangle “emergency” or “crisis” donation money out of kind-hearted albeit naive peoples pockets to “rescue” horses and keep them out of the kill buyers evil clutches.

In other words, they have a vested interest in laws already on the books, sometimes for many years, NOT being enforced because of a business model that heavily relies on receiving thousands of dollars in donation money annually as the only way to continue to run their operation.

They benefit from that lack of enforcement because people send them free money to keep horses out of the hands of kill buyers.
Some rescues also outbid private buyers that are not kill buyers for horses they can potentially sell/adopt for a higher profit margin, but they usually “explain” to their often naive followers that they didn’t think the buyer bidding was an “appropriate home” for the horse.
When out-bidding private buyers happens, and prices go well above “kill price”, even the most gullible and naive people should question the ethics and legitimacy of a rescue that is spending donation money on horses that are not being bought by kill buyers and thus, horses that truly need rescuing may not be rescued/bought.

Horses at Auctions3

This is a reality at livestock ‘kill sales’ (‘food chain animals’ such as cattle, sheep, goats) and sales that are targeted horse sales across the country that operate weekly, the first or second Saturday of the month, special sales every 3 months, or whatever.

Week after week, month after month, the sing-song prattle and chant of the auctioneer can be heard selling horses by-the-head or by-the-pound, cajoling anyone present to bid, bid, all in, all out.

The horses sometimes gracefully walk into the usually tiny sale ring (or “cage’ as is the set-up at some sale yards), being led by a handler, or ridden through to show they are ‘broke to ride’.

Potential buyers may have had a chance to look at the horses before they go through the auction ring if the horses are in a corral, tied to the fence, in a corral or stall at the sale yard, being ridden by riders paid to ride them through the ring and show what they can do.

Buyers can sometimes have a horse ‘trotted out’ on a lead line to look for soundness, they may be able to get a look at the horses teeth for age and condition, talk to the owner that has sadly had to make the decision to sell their horse through a sale as a last resort.

But more often than not at most of the down and dirty, low level sales, the horses slip, slide, and skitter through the gate into the sale ring, often called ‘the cage’, as ‘loose horses’, whether trained or not, wild or domestic, smacked on the ass with a plastic paddle, only to be deflected from the other side of the ring with the paddle to their face to turn them back, by handlers that are jaded, dispassionate, and disassociated to their plight, their fright, their nightmare.

Ban Horse Slaughter8

Their faces are a study in terror and horror, their mouths gape open with shrill screams, the whites of their eyes show, and their eyes roll in fear and terror, as they ftantically careen around the ring, looking for help, looking for compassion, empathy, a lifeline, somebody to save them.

In states where the commercial horse slaughter trade and dealings have not been banned, horses are bartered, traded, thrown-away into the commercial horse slaughter pipeline, where they are forgotten by most, but not by all.

Rescuing, pulling, buying, bailing, or whatever one wants to call it does save horses lives in regard to them being spared the one way trip to Mexico or Canada for commercial slaughter, at least for a little while.

It’s “a good thing” when rescues snatch horses from the jaws of death, outbid the kill buyers, and pull them out of the slauhter pipeline with the help of donors providing the money to purchase them, transport them, care for them, rehabilitate them, adopt them out with or without a fee in states where the horse slaughter trade and dealings are still perfectly legal and horse rescues and rescuers at sales featurin horses eally does save horses, buros, and mules the one way trip to hell at commercial slaughter.

And yes, sometimes rescues even have to euthanize horses if it has been determined by experienced horse people in partnership and agreement with their veterinarians with nothing to gain or lose that their quality of life is not good no matter how much in the way of food, supplements, support, medication, and care isn’t enough and the horse has lost the will to live.
They have saved the horse from the one-way nightmare trip to slaughter, and are succeeding in giving at least some horses a reprieve in going to a horrifying death at slaughter.

So yes, it is “a good thing” when people put themselves out there and brave the realIty of going to a sale where kill buyers operate freely and legally dealing horses by the pound or by the head.

They know they can never buy all the horses in jeopardy of making the one-way terror-trip to slaughter in foreign countries, but try anyway to give at least a few precious and innocent souls a chance at a new life, or a dignified death through humane euthanasia surrounded by those that loved them enough to rescue them, and also cared enough to let them go.

These people are the true, honest, and humble angels that often operate behind the scenes with no fanfare, accolades, or praise; and they should be saluted for their selflessness saving lives because it is the compassionate and human thing to do.

the safe act4

All that being said however, a few states have banned and outlawed any horse slaughter dealings at all, including buying horses at sales or from the public with the intention of shipping them out of the state for commercial slaughter for human consumption.

One such state that has this law is California.

The verbiage is at the link below for those that do not know of this law so that they may understand what the law means:

https://ballotpedia.org/California_Proposition_6,_Prohibition_on_Slaughter_of_Horses_for_Human_Consumption_(1998)

As explained above, some/many of the horse rescues that attend sales regularly, or even deal with the kill buyers at their feedlot, can’t afford for horse slaughter laws being enforced.

They could be called “enablers”, but the most appropriate title is probably capitalists and/or “opportunists” taking advantage of an opportunity to collect tax free money from nice people that are too gullible to realize they are “marks”, they attain free horses using that free money, ask for even more free money for the horses care, maintenance, vet bills (and there are reports of some horse “rescues” ‘saying’ their vet is looking at and examining horses but since vet reports are rarely, if ever, shown upon request by the public, it is questionable if horses are being looked out or if donations sent for that purpose are being used in the way they were donated to be used), farrier bills (at least until they can determine when they “sort” the horses which ones they will sell/adopt, and which ones they will kill/euthanize because their physical and/or behavioral issues will make them difficult to adopt with or without a fee and then just keep repeating the pattern of behavior until enough people get wise and begin to ask questions regarding “where are all of those horses you’ve already ‘rescued’ and are they alive or dead”?

sheeple people2

People that are blind followers of rescues that never ask questions and take everything a rescue say’s at face value are usually people that:

  1. don’t understand or know that horse slaughter dealings are illegal in states like California, and have been for nearly 20 years.
  2. they want so badly to be a part of the excitment, hype, and glitz that these types of horse rescues offer them.
  3. they truly think they are helping horses when the reality is that if the laws already in place were being enforced with the help of horse rescues that have a large following, kill buyers would go to ground and they’d have to get into another line of work or risk being arrested on felony charges and going to prison.
  4. some people want so badly to “belong” to “a club”, “a movement”, “a group”, or “a team” that they will stifle any doubts they may have, they will stop listening to that inner voice or intuition that say’s “somethings not right”, they will “kill the messenger” if anyone tries to point out some problems and things that don’t add up or make sense.
  5. are not really anti-commercial horse slaughter and are “into” rescue primarily to be a part of a “rescue club” or “be on a team” as an enabler and “cheerleader” for a “rescue” that quite frankly isn’t really anti-horse slaughter.
    If the horse rescue really were anti-horse slaughter they’d be helping with the enforcement of LAWS and not using the threat of horse slaughter to gain thousands of dollars in free money donations and acquiring entirely FREE horses they then sell/adopt-for-a-fee, when kill buyers operating illegally are in evidence and have been identified (by the “rescue”) as operating at sales and also at illegal horse feedlots.

For these poor souls, they often are a lost cause because they don’t want to have their impression and image of their favorite rescue shattered by admitting that they are merely being used for their money, their support, their enabling, their “cheerleading”, and their good nature.

SheepleWolf

 

However, for the people that really ARE anti-commercial horse slaughter and seek to have laws already on the books enforced, read on and you will be given a simple way to do your part, even from afar, regarding keeping horses out of the slaughter pipeline.

You will also be impacting having those dealing directly, or even indirectly in horse slaughter dealings held accountable.

 

Here’s what you do:

The next time you are on a California horse rescues Facebook page where they are reporting in “real time” from a horse or livestock sale, at the first mention of “the kill buyers here” or “we’re going to be bidding agasinst the kill buyer”, get on the phone and also on your computer/smartphone and do the following:

  1. contact the California Department of Food and Agriculture via phone at and via email at:

916-654-0466 (Sacramento) General Information

916-654-0462 (Sacramento) Public Affairs

If you are using a TTY/TDD (Text Telephone) dial 1-800-735-2929

If you are using a TRS (Telephone Relay Service) dial 1-800-735-2922

FAX: 916-657-4240 (Sacramento)

Address: California Department of Food and Agriculture
1220 N Street
Sacramento, California, U.S.A. 95814

Hours: Office Hours: 8:00am – 5:00pm | Voice Mail Hours: 5:00pm – 8:00am

and report that “such-and-such horse rescue” (provide their name) is at “such-and such sale” (provide the address and phone # of the sale by Googling that information and also send the Dept. of Ag screenshots of the horse rescue attending the sale publicly identifying kill buyers as being at the sale) and you want a Dept. of Ag officer to go to that sale immediatly, make contact with the horse rescue that has identified the kill buyer/s at that sale, and have them point out the kill buyer/s that are at the sale and have the officer/s make contact with that kill buyer and speak with them regarding their intentions.

2. contact local law enforcement (usually the Sheriff’s office for whatever county the sale operates in – Google that information for the NON-EMERGENCY line.

Here is a link that lists the law enforcement agencies in California:
http://www.usacops.com/ca/) and report the same (also send them screenshots of the rescue publicly identifying kill buyers at the sale they are currently attending) as what you’ve reported to the California Department of Food and Agriculture, and demand that the Sheriff’s office send deputies or other law enforcement officers to that sale immediatly, make contact with whatever horse rescue has reported kill buyers at the sale, and have the rescue identify the kill buyers so that law enforcement can make contact with those kill buyers and determine their intentions and perhaps open an investigation into illegal activities.

3. Contact the California Attorney Generals office and the Secretary of States office that are in charge of over-seeing non-profit rescues and charities operating in their state) via phone at and via email at Report Crime:
https://oag.ca.gov/report-crime and report that a horse rescue is at such-and-such sale yard (give the contact information for the sale yard and make sure you send the AG’s office and the Secretary of Staes office and also law enforcement screenshots of the horse rescue identifying publicly that kill buyers are at the sale) and demand they investigate the sale yard where kill buyers have been identified by the horse rescue as being in attndence buying horses they then are being reported by the horse rescue that they are exporting them for slaughter out of the country (a felony).

4. If horses are on the sale grounds that have been consigned to the sale, or are at the sale yard being bought in the parking lot are identified as being in a neglected and/or abused state, the animal control for that county where the sale yard is being operated NEED to be called and emailed (Google the contact information for whatever animal control is located in the county where the sale is being operated) and demand that animal control goes to the sale, makes contact with the horse rescue that is identifying horses in neglected or abused condition, and have animal control get the horse rescue to identify those horses to them. Animal control also needs to insist that the sale yard explain WHY they have not turned in complaints and reported owners that bring horses to their sale that are in neglected and/or abused condition that either were consigned to the sale, or had them on the sale yard grounds even if not consigned to the sale.

5. Contact the sale yard management that you already have the contact information for and apprise them of the fact that a horse rescue attending their sale has publicly identified kill buyers operating illegally at their sale yard and that law enforcement has been notified , including screenshots of the public announcement by the rescue that kill buyers are at the sale yard, and are hopefully on their way to take a report from the horse rescue, and also from sale yard management regarding alleged illegal activities occurring at the sale yard at the sale/auction.

The same agencies can be contacted, including screen shots, whenever a horse rescue reports that they were at the kill buyers feedlot, that they “work with kill buyers”, or anytime they mention kill buyers operating in Caifornia that they are aware of.

Horse rescues that aren’t striving for enforcement of laws on the books banning and outlawing horse slaughter dealings in that state are suspect as to their motives from not reporting illegal activities and need to be questioned and possibly investigated regarding why they aren’t seeking to have the laws enforced, and instead appear to be actually dealing with kill buyers that are breaking the law.

It takes a village4

 

It really does take a village of people that truly are anti-horse slaughter UNITING WITH OTHER LIKE MINDED INDEPENDENT THINKING PEOPLE to make sure laws are enforced, and if the horse rescues that use the threat of horses going to slaughter in states where the horse slaughter trade and dealings are illegal won’t do it, it is up to courageous, caring, compassionate,  independent thinking horse lovers that are anti-horse slaughter to do it on behalf of ALL of the horses that have no voice and can’t protect themselves from evil and being subjected to the horror that is the horse slaughter pipeline.

asking questions5

It is also high time that horse rescues that appear to be capitilizing on the threat of kill buyers dealing in illegal horse slaughter buying horses they then ship to slaughter outside the US to collect donations and also free horses are questioned regarding their practices and why they don’t instead do all of the above listed pro-active things themselves in order to expose the illegal horse slaughter trade and dealings in their state where it is illegal.

They also should be investigated and forced to identify exactly where the many, many horses they have “rescued” using donation money are at this very moment and why more and more and more horses go into their facilty, but the numbers leaving their facility that are being reported by them clearly don’t match up to the greater numbers they have acquired with donation money.

At the link below is the 1-page short form information page and questionnaire that can be sent to animal rescues that potential donors and supporters want answers from BEFORE they become donors and supporters in order to make sure that the animal rescue shares their ethics, ideals, and principles:

Short Form Information Page and Questionnaire For Animal Rescues

Sheeple people3

 

 

People that are enablers that in fact appear to be more interested in being a part of the “rescue club” and less interested in the enforcement of laws that PROTECT horses from inhumane commercial horse slaughter (that many people fought long and hard to get passed into law) need to understand that horse slaughter is nasty and horrific, and this issue is NOT ABOUT THEM, ITS ABOUT THE HORSES, WHATS BEST FOR THE HORSES AND THAT ENFORCEMENT OF LAWS IS WHAT IS BEST FOR ALL HORSES, NOT JUST THE ONES “RESCUED”  FROM INHUMANE SLAUGHTER BY HORSE RESCUES USING DONATION MONEY.

Everyone needs to make a choice;

is it more important for you to belong to a “rescue club”, “a team”, a “party-barn-rescue” that appears to be capitilizing on the threat of horse slaughter in states where horse slaughter dealings are illegal, and also being a follower that asks no questions so you don’t get ostracized, bullied, false reported on to government agencies in order to shut you up and attacked by the rescue and their enabler-followers?

Sheeple2

Or are you the person whose bottom-line position is the well-being of ALL horses, even if it means going against the grain, even if it means not “belonging”, and even if it means taking a stance that isn’t popular and could lead to you being bullied and attacked because you’re taking the road less traveled?

Are you also willing to do what it takes to have laws be enforced that many people fought long and hard at their own expense of time, money, losing friends, rocking the boat to get on the books in the first place??

Only you can make that decision if you are REALLY anti-horse slaughter, so think long and hard about what kind of person you are, choose wisely, and BE THE VOICE FOR INNOCENT HORSES THAT CANNOT PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM THE EVIL THAT EXISTS that allows for laws to be broken over and over again, even by those that profess to be anti-horse slaughter but whose actions appear to speak more loudly than their words.

Solutions2

 

 

 

Only when like-minded people are committed to STOPPING commercial horse slaughter will there be a good fighting chance that laws like the SAFE Act have a chance of being made LAW in order to protect the innocent souls of ALL horses being subjected to the terror and cruelty that IS commercial horse slaughter.

People need to decide if they are going to be a part of the problem, or a major influence of being a part of the SOLUTION because when those whom deal in horse slaughter and/or are enablers of illegal horse slaughter dealings in states where it is illegal realize they are being scrutinized by those that are 100% AGAINST HORSE SLAUGHTER, there will be a far greater chance of laws being enforced, people not participating either directly or indirectly in the horse slaughter trade, and many more horses will be saved that horrendous and cruel end – and perhaps then the SAFE ACT truly will have a chance of becoming the law of the land.

WHAT KIND OF PERSON ARE YOU – an enabler or a advocate for ending horse slaughter? – only YOU can decide.

Is It Still the Democratic United States of America, Or Is It Now Nazi Germany?

In the new world order in animal-rescue-land of busy-bodies, meddlers, animal rights whack-jobs, informants and DONATION-FUNDED “retail (for profit) rescues” over-seeing and “policing” animal owners, NO ANIMAL OWNERS ARE SAFE FROM ILLEGAL SEIZURE OF THEIR ANIMALS.

Their judgement of and their dislike, hatred, and pettiness toward others, especially those they are jealous of, and also some/many animal rescues greediness regarding receiving free money unaccounted for donations that MANY donation-funded (retail) rescue players literally live off of, knows no bounds, so they will “false report” (which is illegal by-the-way) to TAXPAYER-FUNDED government agencies in order to have their own way, “win”, feel self-righteous” even though they are usually the most INSECURE and COWARDLY  people you’ll ever meet.

They will also ramp-up MOBS on social media to back-them-up because dontcha know they NEVER do anything solo because they are COWARDS.
Ask them reasonable questions and what the questioner will usually get is nonsensical drival, lies, embellishment, angry rants, and nearly ALWAYS, NO ANSWERS WITH A BASIS IN FACT FOR THE POSITION THEY HAVE.

These small-minded people, (and its a joke to call them “adults”), that are stuck in the mentality of junior-high school “mean kids” DELIGHT IN RUINING PEOPLES LIVES, AND WHEN ITS AN ANIMAL OWNER THEY’RE GOING AFTER, THEY COULDN’T CARE LESS THAT THEIR BULLSHIT CAUSES NOT ONLY THE ANIMAL OWNERS LIVES TO BE DESTROYED, IT OFTEN CAUSES ANIMALS TO BE KILLED TOO.

At the link below is one of the most recent attacks on innocent animal owners:

http://www.wsbt.com/news/local/breaking-exotic-animals-found-in-white-pigeon-home-tenants-arrested/37691420

The first clue to something wrong with this picture is this quote:

“This is a call we had never received before, so it started off as kind of a joke,” Musser said. “But basically, our investigation led us to a very serious situation.”

Hmm, so we read “This is a call we had never received before, so it started off as kind of a joke,” Musser said

which tells anyone with an IQ above 80 that this guy has absolutely no training, education, or experience with exotic animals.
And not only that, he’s already geared-up to treat this like “it started off as kind of a joke”.

Our 2nd clue to the lunacy of having people with NO EXPERIENCE with exotic animals being in a position to make life-and-death decisions is his brilliant (NOT!) quote of:

“But basically, our investigation led us to a very serious situation.”

So pray tell, how in the world is someone who is geared-up to treat this as a joke, and who also has NO EXPERIENCE with exotic animals, prepared to judge what is a “very serious situation”?!?!

Animals that smell4

 

The other absolutely idiotic issue are all the folks in the peanut gallery of non-Einsteins ranting and raving about “the smell”…….really?

What, do they really believe that all animals are like Unicorns that fart rainbows and flowers?

Do these morons actually think that when people have numerous animals, especially exotics, horses, goats, and even ferrets that have not had their scent glands removed (ferrets are very stinky when they have those glands, even if they are bathed often), that there aren’t going to be smells that to the average pet owner are offensive and “unbearable” for the simple reason they’ve never been exposed to what may very well be a natural smell for that species?

If people are having animals seized and being arrested because of the smell of the animals, there are A LOT of zoos that are in BIG TROUBLE (especially in the monkey houses).

Animals that smell5

People that are put-off because there are odors usually don’t have large numbers of animals inside or outside their house, and often only have a few dogs, a cat, and other domestic critters that are easy enough to manage, bathe everyday if thats what the people that have OCD and are “neat and clean” freaks do (driving their poor ANIMALS  crazy and into developing weird behavioral issues- that are NOT little children  disguised and dressed in animal costumes – that some of these people actually dress in baby/kids clothes and drive them around in strollers, making normal people KNOW they are imbeciles).

But what they end up doing, proving once again how ignorant they are, is speak utterly moronic, non-factual, lacking-in-experience garbage and incorrect things like they are some kind of experts in species-specific animal husbandry when its as obvious as the nose on ones face that they are NOT..

The actual facts 9 times out of 10 are that some of these jackasses have NO ANIMALS AT ALL, some of them *may* have a few domestic animals (that they probably drive into having vices and behavioral problems because of all the nagging and harping they assault their animals with on a daily basis), and the very closest most of them have ever gotton to exotic animals is at a zoo, or have only seen cows, horses, llamas, etc from afar in a pasture, with some having only been close to any of the aforementioned animals by seeing them on TV.

Then we have the statement:

“The good news is that authorities say it appears that most of the animals are in okay shape”

So since when are animals (supposedly) living in what are to be judged “filthy conditions” by some people making those statements, and that actually appear and sound too inexperienced and unbiasd to be making those kind of judgement calls, grounds for seizing animals and not instead issuing the owners a warning that they have “x number of days” to rectify and correct the situation when MOST OF THE ANIMALS ARE SAID TO BE IN “OKAY SHAPE” as per quotes from “the authorities”?

From this blogger having researched and observed MANY, MANY of these questionable seizures of animals, this whole thing stinks to high Heaven of a set-up designed to defame the owners, steal rare and valuable animals, further the animal rights cause of no one owning animals eventually using TAXPAYER-FUNDED GOVERNMENT AGENCIES TO CARRY OUT THEIR WARPED AGENDA, and also some of the participants that are calling themselves rescues utilizing the situation in order to collect thousands of dollars in donations from gullible people in the public and also attain FREE ANIMALS they can sell.

What would be great is if all of the people attacking this family would PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE, publicly post your addresses and then everyone can come and take a look at your property and your animals.

If you don’t think this very same thing can happen to you as an ANIMAL OWNER, and that animal control, law enforcement, animal rights whack-jobs, and also “for-profit retail rescues” that make a lot of money in donations (off of your misery when you’re attacked) and also by selling free animals they obtain when they do seizure scams and “rescue raids”, won’t come a-callin’ at your house, guess again.

When these control freaks, power-mongers, shysters and grifters see an opportunity to collect thousands of dollars in donations when they ramp-up “social media maddness mobs” to attack you on Facebook, message boards, twitter, instagram and other social media platforms, and when they are getting free animals they sell after dragging you through the mud, you, like MANY OTHERS,  can and will find out the hard way it can happen to ANY ANIMAL OWNER, WITH ANY TYPES OF ANIMALS.

 

Gestapo5

 

Gestapo6

Additionally, last time most people looked, we still live in the democratic United States of America and NOT Nazi Germany where people were arrested and disappeared never to be seen or heard from again.

This begs the question of WHY ARE THESE PEOPLES ANIMALS BEING GIVEN AWAY/SOLD AND/OR KILLED BEFORE THESE ANIMAL OWNERS HAVE HAD THEIR DAY/S IN COURT AND BEFORE THEY HAVE EVEN BEEN INVESTIGATED (unless this was a set-up or plot and an “investigation” of sorts has been on-goin – it certainly wouldn’t be the first time that law enforcement teaming up with faux rescues” has done these nasty, low-down, unethical, dirty things)?

So where is the JUSTICE in what is being done to these people?

That’s right, there isn’t ANY!

Corruption in rescue2

Most despicable of all is that some of the stolen animals are also being killed because the law breakers that are trampling these peoples rights cannot handle those animals, so they make up stories that the animal is “dangerous”, is “ill”, “can carry diseases”, etc – however, WHERE EXACTLY ARE ALL OF THE VET REPORTS FROM A LICENSED VETERINARIAN ATTESTING TO THESE STATEMENTS (EXCUSES) FOR THE KILLING OF INNOCENT ANIMALS THAT IN FACT WERE MEMBERS OF A FAMILY AND BEING TAKEN CARE OF?!?!

 

Gestapo5

Its not the animals that were seized/stolen and/or the property they were living peacefully at that STINKS!

What STINKS IS THE GESTAPO-LIKE BEHAVIOR OF THE INEXPERIENCED CONTROL FREAKS ABUSING AND OVER-STEPPING THEIR AUTHORITY THAT RAIDED THIS HOUSE, CONFISCATED (STOLE) ANIMALS FROM THEIR HOME, AND ARRESTED THE ANIMAL OWNERS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.

In closing, pertaining to ALL the people in the mob that are attacking these people;

THOSE OF US WITH INTELLIENCE, COMPASSION, EMPATHY AND COMMON SENSE WILL BE WAITING IMPATIENTLY FOR EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU TO PUBLICLY POST YOUR ADDDRESS SO WE CAN COME OVER AND ASSESS EXACTLY HOW YOU KEEP ALL OF YOUR ANIMALS AND ALSO WHAT YOUR PROPERTY LOOKS LIKE.

Going further, ALL OF YOUR DOGS BETTER BE LICENSED, OTHERWISE, THEY SHOULD BE SEIZED AND YOU SHOULD BE ARRESTED FOR NOT ABIDING BY THE LAWS AND RULES OF WHERE YOU LIVE.

“SELECTIVE ENFORCEMENT” should NEVER BE TOLERATED because it is unfair and illegal. If you aren’t abiding by all of the rules, regs, and laws, prepare for complaints going to your local authorities to be coming in by the hundreds regarding you and your law-breaking.

Is that a threat?

Nope, its a promise to make sure “selective enforcement” doesn’t happen just because YOU think you’re squeaky clean and above the law.

We’ll probably be waiting a really long time for the posting of these ignorant peoples addresses (although, its probably easy enough for people to look them up under their names and publicly post them using websites like Instant Checkmate at https://www.instantcheckmate.com/  ) to happen because your ilk are PURE COWARDS and are only “brave” (NOT!) big mouths from the safety of your own homes, which are OFTEN hundreds, if not thousands of miles away from where innocent peoples lives are being wrecked, ruined, and destroyed, and their beloved animals are being SOLD AND ALSO KILLED (LIKE BROKEN MERCHANDISE).

Coming soon is the means for innocent animal owners who have been attacked on seizures of their animals and their illegal arrests, and also who are being libeled and slandered, to affordably file civil lawsuits and sue all parties that participated in the seizure, and also those cowards in the mindless mob on the Internet that think they are untouchable whom are libeling and slandering them.

Stay Tuned3

Stay tuned for that annoiuncement that WILL make “the noise in numbers” of the mindless mobs that are attacking, threatening, stalking and defaming STOP IT, or else they WILL be smacked in the wallet.

asking questions4

In the meantime, anyone that wants to find out exactly WHO the participants in this raid are should send them some of the questions contained on the 1 page information sheet and questionnaire at the link below.

Their failure to answer any questions is indicative of the BS and cruel manipulations being perpetrated on the gullible, trusting public and leads those “in the know” to believe that not all is at it seems regarding this seizure of animals and the arrest of their owners.

Short Form Information Page and Questionnaire For Animal Rescues

 

Animals Going M.I.A. At Rescues – Like Socks In A Dryer

No Spin4

Lets cut to the chase and quit tip-toeing around the issue and question –

No sugar-coating, no political correctness, no BS.

What exactly do “donation-funded – adoption-based” animal rescues do with un-adoptable animals that have physical and/or behavioral issues that are not severe enough to cause the animal to have a poor quality of life (the animal wants to live) but the animal is not adoptable with or without a fee because of those issues?

You know, the animals these “rescues” acquire through seizures and raids against animal owners (when they “partner”/are in collusion with animal control) that “they say” are neglecting and starving them (but that they don’t produce factual proof, bloodwork, vet reports to substantiate what they are saying is true)?

Or the ones they acquire at auctions using donor money to buy them that they are unable to handle or interact much with the animal at the auction house and are only able to do all but a superficial evaluation?

In the instances above, evaluations of animals physical and/or behavioral health cannot be evaluated thoroughly during the feeding frenzy of a raid on an animal owners property (as the often innocent animal owners are being terrorized, held hostage on their own property, and can only watch as their beloved animals are being subjected to stress and terror, their place is being ransacked, and their personal property inanimate objects in addition to the animals they own, are being loaded up and taken).

Animals cannot usually be thoroughly evaluated during the “excitment”, drama and competitiveness between bidders at an auction/sale (horse and dog auctions usually, where so-called “rescues” OFTEN outbid private buyers for the more desirable animals they can flip/SELL at a very tidy profit).

So when the rescuers get the animals they have attained with DESIGNATED (other peoples) DONATION MONEY back to the “rescue facility”, they evaluate and “sort” animals, like “sorting” merchandise at a thrift store for instance (used items).

Then, based on color, breeding, disposition, “desirability” for adoption (selling) and other factors, decisions are made regarding:

*which animals can be sold (“adopted for a fee”),

*which animals still have “donation-value” whereby their age or condition, with the right story and “spin”/”puffing” assigned to them, tugs on the heartstrings of animal lovers because they have disabilities, deformaties, or are “special needs” and these particular animals are “cash cows” that can and do bring in thousands of dollars in absolutely free donation money,

*which animals are worthless on the open adoption/retail market, and although not in acute or chronic pain that can’t be monitored and controlled in relatively simple and inexpensive ways, they are not candidates for EASY re-homing,

*or perhaps they are older animals that have behavioral issues that render them un-rehomable because successful training and / or rehabilitation into adoptability is probably not going to happen,

are then they are KILLED or “disappeared” because they’re a ball-n-chain, a money-pit, and an “incovenience” to the rescue that is “not in the business” of caring for animals that don’t carry their own weight with no return on the time and (other peoples) money spent on them.

In what world is it a-O.K. to beg and plead for donations to “rescue” animals, take them back to the “rescue” facility, “sort” them like feelingless merchandise, seperate the sellable ones from the reject merchandise (not the right color, ugly, broken), and then kill or “disappear” (to death) the animals that didn’t make the cut?

Bingo! You win the prize if you guessed the unregulated, no rules and no holds barred world of donation-funded animal (trafficking) “rescue”.

Lives Matter1

 

 

 

 

 

All animals lives matter, – – yes, they do -even. the. animals. that. can’t. or. won’t. “do”. anything. for. anyone.

And this is especially true when donation-funded animal rescues ask for and receive free money donations from compassionate people and are supposed to be RESCUING ANIMALS ON THEIR BEHALF SINCE THOSE DONORS CAN’T RESCUE “HANDS-ON” IN-PERSON THEMSELVES.

So just because some low-life animal traders at a retail rescue justify killing animals to their brainless sheeple-followers saying the animal is supposedly “in pain” (why won’t they publicly post vet reports where their vet states their opinions and findings for EVERY animal they attain USING donation money?), “they are wild and can’t be trained, they are dangerous” (why don’t they post videos for the public to see of the animals dangerous behavior?) doesn’t mean its really true at all.

The tragic truth is that if the hustlers and animal dealers at some/many donation-funded rescues mouths are moving and their fingers are typing, they are probably LYING because, NO SURPRISE HERE, they are pathological liars.

Raining Money1

The FACTS are that donation-funded, adoption-based animal (retail) rescue business models (“rescue is their job” and a fine one it is when you’re a talented and convincing con-artist working your “marks”) are based on creating a cash flow of free money (think being on welfare with other people supporting your lifestyle of being “a rescuer” and playing with animals all the live long day).

 

Tall Tales1

However, the stark reality is that these people are your garden-variety hucksters and hustlers (many of whom know how to work the government aid system and collect SSI, food stamps, disability payments, unemployment, put in phony insurance claims, and other things only real players know how to do effectively) dealing in “used and refurbished animals”, with a social club-type atmoshere where people can feel like they are a part of “a team”, “a village”, they “belong”, they are “helping”, “we’re all in this together” and bunches of other syrupy “feel good” things designed to rope in the gullible volunteers and followers that will never be a part of the inner-circle that are privvy to the workings of the “rescue” and are pulling the strings.

Journalist1

They even have their “pet journalists” that can be counted on to write “fluff pieces” about how “wonderful the rescue is”, and these hacks NEVER FACT-CHECK OR VERIFY ANY OF THE INFORMATION THAT IS SPOON-FED TO THEM BY THE SCAMMERS at the rescue.

People that are local to the rescue can volunteer (after they sign their whistleblowing rights away with the handy-dandy confidentiality agreement modern day rescues require they sign so people don’t go all Edward Snowden on them) and can get their “we’re rescuers fix” even though everyone knows that they are free labor just one negative comment, observation, or question away from being booted-off the rescue property if they get too curious or suspicious regarding where are all the animals disappearing to, or why healthy, or reasonably healthy animals are being CRUELLY killed.

Most people however live vicariously and “rescue from afar” over the Internet on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, InstaGram, etc, participating with their favorite rescue (that they really don’t know much about other than what “the rescue tells them”), sending them money, cheerleading for them, acting as attack dogs when anyone dares to ask questions they’re too brainwashed to ask themselves.

These drones are also the good little soldiers that can be counted on to call in (illegal) false reports to TAX-PAYER FUNDED GOVERNMENT AGENCIES SUCH AS ANIMAL CONTROL, LAW ENFORCEMENT, THE DEPARTMENT OF AG, AND OTHERS whenever their handlers at the rescue want to destroy ANYONE that is asking the rescue too many questions, or are putting out FACTUAL INFORMATION on a (retail) rescue that could and would get them in DEEP TROUBLE with local, regional, and even federal law enforcement agencies, DA’s, AG’s offices, the taxation board, the IRS and others if the facts grew legs and run and run and run (to the media too).

Hucksters1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The “marketing staff” (carnies and barkers) at the rescue give the “useful idiots” (their enabler followers in other words) in the public what they want and are brilliant at staging “rescues”, portraying animal owners and even other rescues (that don’t rely on hand-out panhandling donations from other people in order to operate) as the cruel villians and the (retail) rescue as the champions for animals (even though they kill and dispose of so many animals they can’t USE in stealth and secrecy and pocket the free designated donation money to use as they wish).

 

Everything looks peachey-keen on the surface of what is presented to the public by these animal traders and dealers posing as “rescues” because we do give credit where credit is due and they are brilliant at providing entertainment to the excitment and drama addicted public that literally get HIGH from the fare they are served day-after-day, and week-after-week and probably get their morning coffee and immediately tune-up for more entertainment, drama, excitment, and ability to liven up their boring, mundane lives by living vicariously through the rescue-hustlers.

But anyone that keeps a close eye on shady rescues can easily see that a notable imbalance exists of animals that enter the “rescue” and those that are actually spoken about leaving through adoption (sold without having to deal with sales tax charged to the buyer as retail businesses that are operating LEGALLY must charge), are in foster care”, are sent “out for training”, are “in a sanctuary” (where. current. photos. of. the. animal.  are. not. available. ever), etc, DON’T MATCH UP IN THE LEAST with the numbers leaving the (black hole) rescue alive, AND MANY ANIMALS THAT WERE “RESCUED” USING DONATED FUNDS HAVE GONE M.I.A. POOF. VANISHED.

Consider this too: TAXPAYER-FUNDED animal controls and shelters are required to account for the animals that come through their doors (even though some of these facilities are caught red-handed lying about killing alot more animals unethically, inhumanely, llegally, and without remorse or guilt than they are reporting:

https://yesbiscuit.wordpress.com/2016/01/21/some-ny-shelters-hiding-their-killed-animals-at-veterinary-offices/

Here’s an ecerpt from the link above:

Some of the shelters take their animals to private veterinary offices for killing.  Vets fall under different reporting requirements than shelters and when they dispose of dead animals, they don’t have to specify whether the pet belonged to a client or came from a shelter.  Five of the seven shelters contract with a crematory in Hartsdale, which estimates it cremates 30,000 pets a year with 1450 of those coming from area shelters.

The Yonkers Animal Shelter did have records on file with the state but the documents, which indicate only 5 dogs and zero cats were killed during a one year period, are clearly useless:

In 2015, [director of the Yonkers shelter Almira] Simpson said, 71 cats and 11 dogs from the shelter, including the five Yonkers reported to the state, were put down.

With this requirement, *some* taxpayers may have a problem (and will vocalize their opposition of their tax dollars being used to kill innocent animals) with their tax dollars supporting a high kill rate animal shelter that regularly kills healthy animals rather than at least trying to run a successful adoption program with good marketing to find as many animals homes as possible rather than killing them.

Fox Henhouse3

However, with the vast lack of oversight in donation-funded and adoption-based animal rescue, there are NO REQUIREMENTS THAT THESE “RESCUES” MUST REPORT TO ANYONE, NOT EVEN THE DONORS THAT SUPPORT THEIR RESCUE OPERATION IN MANY CASES, WHERE ALL OF THE ANIMALS THAT THEY ASK FOR AND RECEIVE DONATIONS TO RESCUE ARE DAYS OR MONTHS AFTER THEY ARE “RESCUED”, LET ALONE WHERE ALL THESE ANIMALS ARE (and whether they are alive or dead, and if dead, EXACTLY HOW WERE THEY KILLED?) 2-3 years later.

SOME DONORS WOULD ALSO NOT DONATE AND SUPPORT SOME OF THESE RESCUES THAT HAVE A HIGH KILL RATE ON HEALTHY, OR RELATIVELY HEALTHY ANIMALS THAT DON’T WISH TO DIE.

If these donors knew precisely how many animals that were supposed to be, and are being portrayed as “rescued and safe”, were actually killed instead (after all of their sympathy “donation-value” has been wrung out of them that is) to make way for “new/fresh merchandise” animals, some/many of these “rescues that aren’t” would LOSE A LARGE PORTION OF THEIR DONOR BASE BECAUSE MOST ANIMAL LOVERS REFUSE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE KILLING OR DISAPPEARING OF ANIMALS NOT WISHING TO DIE JUST BECAUSE THEY MAY HAVE ISSUES THAT RENDER THEM UNADOPTABLE AND/OR THEY HAVE BEEN UP FOR ADOPTION FOR TOO LONG.

THE BOTTOM-LINE IS THAT THE DONATION-FUNDED ADOPTION BASED (RETAIL) “RESCUE” DOESN’T WANT TO SPEND ANY MORE OF THAT FREE DONATION THEY ASK FOR AND RECEIVE ON ANIMALS THAT DON’T MAKE MONEY, OR IN FACT MAKE THE “RESCUE” LOOK BAD IF THEY HAVE OLD AGE AND/OR CHRONIC ISSUES THAT CAUSES THEM TO NOT LOOK SO RED HOT (opening them up to attack by competing donation-funded (retail) rescues FOR THE VERY SAME REASONS THEY ATTACK OTHER ANIMAL OWNERS AND RESCUES CARING FOR OLD, ILL, DEBILITATED ANIMALS).

Passive and gullible people just “assume” that when the animals are rescued by a “bonafide rescue” they are “safe”.

But instead, many animals that these traders, flippers and dealers posing as rescues attain USING DONATED FUNDS sent to them by clueless people that never ask questions pretty much vanish in the “don’t ask, don’t tell” environment at these cloak and dagger “rescues” that are smart enough to throw their groupie followers a bone from time to time and publicly state that they “had to put an animal down”.

So even when they don’t provide publicly posted vet reports or euthanasia reports stating “why” and “how” the animal was euthanized/killed, them speaking for their vet (because most vets, even the Dr. Death ones that kill healthy animals at the “rescues” bidding and are paid with donated funds to do so – make no mistake however, animals are disposed of in a myriad of ways that are far from pleasant by these betrayers of animals-, draw the line at writing false vet reports stating a phony reason why an animal was killed because they don’t want to lose their license under intense scrutiny) is still enough to fool passive head-in-the-sand folks that crow “see, they are so transparent” and no one thinks to ask about where the other 10, 20, 50, 75, or 100+ animals that were “rescued” in 1 year using donated funds are.

So this now begs the question of if the rescue is supposedly “rescuing” animals they are constantly begging the public to send them money to rescue, when they keep all that donated money but kill or “disappear” healthy/relatively healthy animals that WANT TO LIVE and don’t say anything at all, or even flat-out lie about where those “rescued” animals are at, wouldn’t that be considered:

* cruelty and abuse to rescued animals,

*misrepresentation,

*misappropriation of funds (when they use donated funds sent to rescue animals and instead use the funds to kill or disappear the animals),

*and fraud?

 

Nonprofit2

The other question is: “designated funds” are legally supposed to be used for designated purposes.

But because pocketing the money to use on “whatever” that was/is supposed to be used to rescue and maintain animals would go over like a lead balloon with even the most gullible of donors, exactly WHAT IS THAT MONEY BEING USED FOR (besides mani’s, pedi’s, feeding and maintaining their own personal animals, paying non-rescue related bills, spending it on their kids,  vacations, luxury items, cosmetic surgery, etc)?

So many questions, so few answers, so little, if any, oversight, and the callous, gutter-slime scam artists at some of these donation-funded adoption-based animal (retail)rescues are laughing their way to the bank and riding their own personal gravy train, just as innocent animals that were supposed to be rescued on behalf of kind donors are disposed of by these evil magicians, often in the most betraying, cruel, and terrifying of ways.

And as for the rescues that don’t have the really vile habit of “freshening the merchandise” by killing and disappearing animals that may not be adoptable for various reasons but still want and DESERVE TO LIVE, and that were rescued using donated funds?They are the rescues that are generally filled to capacity, their operators usually have jobs outside of rescue to support their rescue efforts, their donations are scarce, small and often few and far between, and they have a waiting list for the very reason that they don’t callously and cavalierly kill animals UNLESS the animal has a condition that cannot be treated and the pain controlled for the animal to have a decent quality of life.

They deserve the support from the public, but alas, they generally don’t lie, embellish, create crisises and “emergencies” every week, and fabricate sappy stories that are designed to tug on peoples heartstrings.

Most people also don’t understand that even the daily day-to-day taking care of rescued animals, that might be a bit boring, is just as important, and maybe even more so, if there are animals at the rescue that may never find an adoptive home because they can’t be “used” for anything, just as the animals that are being “rescued” with a lot of hoople, drama, embellishments, lies, made-up stories designed to open donors wallets, and fanfare by showboating donation-funded (retail) rescues kill and “disappear” these useless animals all the time.

For any animal lovers that don’t just participate in rescuing for the social aspects and camaradiere of interacting with other rescuers and actually do care about what happens to ALL of the animals that a rescue is rescuing, do yourselves and the animals in need a favor and send the animal rescue/s your are considering supporting and donating to the simple 1 page questionnaire at the link below BEFORE YOU DONATE OR ARE SUPPORTIVE of any animal rescue and find out how transparent and accountable the rescue really is regarding what they do with un-sellable/un-adoptable/useless animals.

As it is now, there are no government agencies or organizations that monitor the safety and longevity of animals AFTER THEY ARE RESCUED (kind of sad that innocent animals that are supposed to be rescued and safe with rescues that USE GENEROUS DONATIONS TO RESCUE ON BEHALF OF ANIMAL LOVERS have to rely on the public to make sure that hustlers and con-artists DON’T CALLOUSLY AND CAVILIERLY KILL AND DISAPPEAR THEM IN STEALTH AND SECRECY in sometimes/often cruel ways), so it falls to the animal loving public that find the killing of healthy/reasonably healthy animals by rescues to be repugnant, disappointing, cruel and disgusting to monitor and scrutinize animal rescues to make sure they aren’t clearing-house, “sorting”, and killing facilities.

Here’s that 1 page questionnaire that honest, accountable and transparent rescues will have no problem filling out and returning to the sender – by taking the time to ask questions, you may well save an animals life that doesn’t wish to be dead at the hands of animal traffickers and dealers posing as a rescue:
