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”.

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.
