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:

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.

Where’s All the Help for These Horses NOW?!?

https://rtfitchauthor.com/2016/11/25/slaughter-auction-looms-for-former-wild-horses-as-sanctuary-leader-struggles-with-deadlines/

So where’s the help for these horses at the story at the link above by “outraged rescuers” on social media that are such ardent keyboard warriors BUT NOW, when these horses lives are on the line, they’re no where to be seen?

This is the reality folks: “someone” ramps up an attack on someone with animals that often is real sketchy and thin on facts, the attackers (because these people rarely work alone and there is something in it for them like building a following, a position working for someone, making money off the attack, etc) look like the “hero” for “exposing something” that the social media public doesn’t get the full story on.
Then the person that started the whole thing is no where to be found, or reappears later as “such a great person” even though animals die because of them.

Where are ALL the outraged people with opinions NOW opening your wallets and working EVERYDAY to guarantee that none of these horses go to an auction and on to slaughter?

That’s right, MOST of you went back to your own lives as people like you always do, but only after taking pot shots at the sanctuary’s operator and writing some really nasty, ignorant things.
Thats because its EASY to write shit on the Internet, but beyond your capabilites or inclination to really DO anything to actually HELP the situation instead of making it worse for the horses.

As it turns out, ignorant people like you are so small-minded that you really couldn’t care less what happens to the innocent horses.
Many of you will actually say really dismissive, de-valuating things like “the horses are in a better place” when the FACT is they are DEAD and that is not “a better place” when the horse (or any animal or person) REALLY WANTED TO LIVE.
YOU say things like that out of guilt for jumping in the fray in a situation you probably didn’t know much about, and now horses shipped to slaughter,

or were killed because people don’t want to deal with wild and/or un-useable horses (or dogs, or many other species of animals).

YOU decided to join the fray ON THE INTERNET WITHOUT KNOWING THE FACTS and now innocent horses may, and probably WILL, DIE by one means or another.

These horses should be roaming with their family and friends even when the view isn’t absolutely picture perfect and “nice enough” to please your ideals of what rescue should be always be.

That however is no longer an option unless you big mouths that went on the attack instead start raising some money to really save ALL the horses and allow them to stay at their home where most of them have resided for years.

MONEY will also allow more time to find adoptable horses an appropriate home instead of shuttling horses off with who knows who that may just want to USE the horses to raise donations, and will then dispose of the un-useable ones when the donation money peters out to nothing.

Sad is the fact that YOU will one day probably have “issues” that render you a “burden”, not useful, maybe not looking so swell.
By your current reasoning on attacking people that care for old animals, animals with issues, etc, your family members that are doing the best they can taking care of you could find themselves under scrutiny for “elder or disabled person” abuse if someone targets you for “exposure” for whatever reasons they have.
YOU, most likely against your will, will then be stuffed away into a crappy county home with a “guardian” assigned to your case and in charge of your life, away from your family.
YOU will now be with people that will keep you alive long enough to steal any assets you have, and once the assets are gone, then they’ll just want you to hurry up and die so more displaced “people with issues” can be brought in, and so the big disposal machine grinds on and on.

It may not be too late to actually help, so if YOU really want to HELP, here’s what you can and SHOULD do:

*instead of Christmas shopping for material things your family or friends probably won’t use at all, donate that money for these horses upkeep.

*Then tell your family and friends that you don’t want Christmas gifts and instead collect the money and send it for the good of these horses.

You see, YOU can still do something to help, IF YOU really want to help that is.

This wreck can still be stopped if YOU will simply DO SOMETHING other than jumping on the MOB BANDWAGON that is often operated by jealous people wanting to see others fail, while not really caring even a little bit about the animals trapped in the middle of warring human nature that is often ugly to behold.

A bunch of do-nothing hypocrites is what many people are, and the blood from these horses will be on their hands for having big mouths, mean-spirits, and no intentions regarding helping these horses at all.

That is, UNTIL you do something to really HELP these horses — the choice is still yours.

Drama-junkies Supporting Donation-Funded “Rescues-Kill Shelters” Are Guilty Of HEARTLESS Executions of Innocent”Rescued Animals”

 

All Life Matters

When to Euthanize — YesBiscuit Blog

In reading at the link above how making the decision to euthanize beloved animals is often the most difficult decision a loving animal owner will ever have to make, this is why it’s so disturbing that more and more for-profit animal “rescues”/”shelters” that are primarily, or entirely donation-fueled (that’s why they so disingenously pander to the naive, gullible, foolish people on social media with their OFTEN fictional-fantasy, lying stories of their “heroics” because if the public stopped sending them free money, their animal dealerships would fold) kill MANY healthy animals that are supposed to be safe-in-rescue just because:

1. They can’t sell/adopt the animal out for enough money to make it worth their time and money to warrent letting the animal live peacefully in rescue/sanctuary,

2. The rescued animal won’t sell quickly enough so that they can make room for more animals they can beg for “emergency donations” to ‘rescue’;

3. The animal may have mild NON-life threatening physical and/or behavioral issues that will hinder adopting them out with, or without a fee.

 

The current world of social media “retail rescue” functions off of the high volume, high turnover of animals going in and out of the “rescue-kill shelters”, and “crisis rescuing” which bring in the most money in donations from the naive, easily manipulated, donating public.

Mob Mentality

Drama-junkie, entertainment-addicted faux animal lovers in the rescue world tune-in to online social media “rescue” to be entertained, and an “emergency rescue” is orchastrated by the master manipulators at primarily, or entirely donation-fueled and funded “rescues” to play on the social-media-rescue-following publics heartstrings, and loosen their purse strings again, and again, and again like the mundane, daily, and ordinary tasks of everyday rescuing and daily care of animals never can.

 

The problem with this model of “rescuing” is that there MUST be crisis and a sense of immediacy of “we NEED YOUR MONEY NOW so we can rescue these poor animals” in order for the FREE donation money to keep flowing in to the for-profit retail rescues coffers.

In fact, this accounts for a huge portion of their income stream and monthly nut.

However, what’s a retail rescue to do with the reality of them accumulating more, and more, and more animals that they can’t sell quickly, or can’t sell at all, can’t find foster homes for to get the animals off their feed and maintenance bills that designated donations are raised to cover, can’t get rid of animals that don’t want to die, but badly want to live?

BINGO!

You kill healthy animals, and then convince the foolish, entertainment-addicted public that you had “no other choice” because the animal “had issues”, all while NOT SHOWING VET REPORTS AND EUTHANASIA REPORTS that show WHY and HOW the animal was euthanized/KILLED/EXECUTED.

It’s an interesting and tragic phenomenon when so many in the public are so quick to follow blindly along when a donation-fueled “rescue” kills animals “they say” ‘needed to die’ in a supposed mercy-killing, but when asked for documentation that illustrates the WHY’S and HOW’S of the killing, they:

*refuse to answer,

*or they are evasive in their answers,

*or they are aggressive and combative in their answers,

*or they sic their thug keyboard-bully followers on anyone that dares to care enough about animals to ask questions

of WHY animals that had thousands of dollars sent in by generous people in the public to rescue them end up being DEAD by:

*chemical euthanasia,

*shooting,

*gassing,

*or disappeared into the black hole of “de-valued animals” that exhausted their “donation-value” have a way of doing.

 

The trend of people going along with the killings of rescued animals that had donation-money sent in through various unregulated, unaccountable means of payment appears to be hitting it’s peak as more people become suspicious of “rescue-kill shelters” who beg and plead for donation money as new “crisis rescues” appear constantly……….

…..but there are still people that follow the for-profit retail rescues for the entertainment-value that think anything the “rescue sez” is just dandy, which effectively makes the often phony ‘rescues’ asshole enabler followers JUST AS RESPONSIBLE for the KILLING of animals that are supposed to be “rescued and safe”.

These shallow, stupid supporters may have just as well killed the innocent animals themselves, with the poisoned syringe and needle in their grubby hands, or a smoking gun and blood explosions as yet another healthy animal that wants to live, dies instead.

Pathological Liar8

For those idiotic, heartless, cruel people that go along with the de-valuing of the lives of animals just like your favorite rescues tell you you should:

*you are traitors and betrayors,

*and your shit attitudes in the de-valuing of lives just because you’re too drama-addicted and stupid to realize that YOU, just like the so-called ‘rescued animals’, are props, and pawns, and cogs in a wheel that are being USED to power the enabling of a for-profit animal dealership posing as a “rescue” to buy, sell, barter, trade, and KILL animals when their usefulness is OVER.

YOUR willfully clueless behavior is not going un-noticed by those who are determined to put a stop to the wholesale killing of animals by the money-grubbing serial killers of animals.

Innocent, gentle animals are supposed to be rescued with thousands of dollars of donation money sent in for that purpose.

Instead, MANY are being callously and cruelly killed after their value in bringing in FREE MONEY for the narcissists and sociopaths in social media crisis-rescuing is over.

Crisis-rescue-junkies — keep up your mindless, moronic, junkie-behavior and it will be too late to disassociate yourself from your favorite scammy donation-fueled “rescue-kill shelter” that kills animals and that will be exposed, it’s just a matter of time.

They wouldn’t get away with their despicable killing behavior if YOU weren’t enabling them by being:

*a dumb groupie and cheerleader,

*a donor,

*an excuse-maker,

*and a keyboard-bully attacking people that ask reasonable questions,

for the primary reasons that YOU want to be entertained (to relieve the boredom of your purposeless life?)

*you live vicariously through other people and their manic, mentally unbalanced behavior

and you for some sad reason also pathetically have the NEED to belong.

Animal Rights1

You can still redeem yourself and help stop the killing of innocent animals that are supposed to be “safe in rescue”…..really, you can.

All you have to do is:

*admit that talented scam – artists operating on social media managed to fool you with their puffery, misrepresentation, embellishments, and blatant, pathological LYING,

*think for yourself,

*don’t be afraid of not belonging to a killing team, a murderous village, a heathen tribe,

*and care enough about animals to ask questions,

*and if/WHEN  logical, concise answers are NOT forth-coming,

*you will file complaints with organizations and agencies that will get answers one way or another in order to,

*protect “rescued animals” from being USED, BETRAYED, and KILLED by those running con-games posing as rescuers in DONATION-FUELED rescue.

Truth7

It IS that easy to become a hero for animals,

to be their voice,

EXPOSING those that will never stop exploiting them,

until YOU,

and YOU,

and thousands of YOU’s,

come together in harmony and love

to STOP the greedy, self-absorbed conscience-LESS traitors,

from hurting and killing animals,

with no questions asked and answered,

UNLESS and UNTIL they are persistently demanded.

sheeple people2

Oh, and by-the-way, those people that are on the Board of Directors or are Officers in these “rescues” that wantonly and callously KILL healthy, innocent animals that are supposed to be “safe in rescue” that were “rescued” USING DONATED FUNDS?

You may think you can plead ignorance and innocence regarding the misuse of donated funds AND the KILLING of healthy, innocent rescued animals.

However, YOU are supposed to be the “checks and balances” that help keep people HONEST and doing the unselfish work of NONPROFIT animal rescue.

Unfortunately, narcissistic, manipulative, sociopathic people are OFTEN only “into” animal rescue for the free money flowing in, the free animals they attain USING other peoples money that they can sell, and the accolades whereby animals in need are mere props, pawns, and a vehicle to celebrity and attention.

When you do suspect shady and/or illegal activities, or are suspicious of WHY so many animals are being killed, or are simply disappearing at an alarming rate and your questions go unanswered, or if you are the Treasurer in charge of the finances for the nonprofit and you’re unable to balance the books and/or are having difficulty figuring out what donation money is being spent on, IF you possess a conscience, or IF you have a sense of self-preservation, you would be well advised to distance yourself from questionable dealings and a rescue that is not as it appears.

Taking it an ethical step farther, whistle blowing may be in order to protect animals, and protect yourself, for the simple reason that when the domino’s begin to topple, even “if” you are an honest, ethical person, YOU will be painted with the same broad, tainted brush as the crooks and criminals because you didn’t say a word about the bad things that were happening at the “rescue” you were involved with.

 

 

 

“It’s a lot easier to fool people than it is to convince them they’ve been fooled” ~Mark Twain

In the instance of donation-funded animal rescues fleecing the foolish public however, it’s too often the ‘rescued animals’ that are often killed, or disappear, because no one cares enough to follow-up on precisely what happened to the animals that donated funds actually paid to rescue.

 

There are several horse rescues in California that use the threat of horses going to slaughter in Canada or Mexico if a kill buyer buys them at the sales, so every week and every month they beg for donations to “save them”.

Most of the rescues that attend the sales know exactly who the kill buyers are, some interact with kill buyers in social ways, and some do deal with them behind-the-scenes where their gullible and downright dopey followers will never know the dirty dealings that go down, see the money changing hands, see where some of the horses they sent in money to “rescue” are bartered, traded, and sold like feeling-less used cars.

The problem with this however is that horse slaughter dealings have been banned entirely in California since November 1998.

The kill buyers know it, the sale yards know it, the people that haul horses out of the state and the US for slaughter know it, and ALL of the donation-funded horse rescues know it too.

 

The primary reason the rescues won’t launch a campaign to get horse slaughter dealings in California shut down entirely as per the law is that a huge portion of many of the DONATION-FUNDED horse rescues monthly income stream relies to a high percentage on using the “kill buyer threat” to get people on social media to send them “emergency, crisis or sympathy donations” so they can “save horses” USING other people’s money.

They can also look like the big hero’s and continue with the lifestyle they have grown extremely accustomed to that foolish people in the public facilitate for them.

But a crucial and critical problem with this is that after they collect the donations numbering in the thousands of dollars for each horse rescued so they can supposedly cover transport, veterinarian fees, maintenance costs, training, and other things, many of the horses disappear to places where no one can see them because they are most likely dead.

For many horses, this happens because they can’t be sold-adopted for high $$$ and the dealers in rescue don’t want to spend money on horses they can’t get rid of easily and quickly.

Some horses also might have some issues that limit them being adopted with or without money changing hands, but the issues are not life threntening and the horse doesn’t want to be killed.

 

A few rescues admit they kill a lot of rescued horses.

This is so they can make room to bring in more horses under the guise of yet another emergency or crisis rescue (that really gets their followers adrenelin pumping and loosens the purse strings) to keep the horse or horses from getting into the hands of the evil kill buyer that is not supposed to be operating in California at all for the past 19 years.

These are often healthy horses that are shot because they have no more donation value and they are pretty much a black hole money pit for ‘rescues’ that don’t want to spend money on them because there’s nothing in it for them at that point.

One of the rescue-dealers also does their own chemical euthanasia.

Word on the street is that some veterinarians fearing they were going to be investigated for euthanizing so many healthy horses have refused to keep up the production-line cruel killing of horses that are being misrepresented as having been “rescued”.

Some horses are taken to big cat and wolf sanctuaries where they are shot and fed to the sanctuary animals.

That in itself is cruelty to healthy horses that are supposed to be safely in rescue.

However, it’s also cruelty to the big cats and wolves who are being fed what is often drug tainted horse meat (deworming chemicals, vaccinations, insecticids, bute, banamine, and other commonly used products and drugs that stay in the horses system long after they were given or applied) that the operators of those sanctuaries would only know the horses have in their systems if they did blood draws to test for drugs, something it is doubtful they do.

Some horses are allegedly being back-doored to the very kill buyers the horses were supposed to be rescued from and the horses go to slaughter.

Mind you, many of these horses are healthy, but might not be adoptable for a big enough price, so the rescues don’t want to have them hanging around using up the crisis donation money they brought in that the rescues refuse to account for every penny of donations that come in and also what it’s spent on.

They also never show veterinarian reports (well, to be fair, some rescues occassionally show a token vet report to settle down the restless natives in their villages) of the horses being evaluated and treated by their vet as they said they were going to use some of the donated funds for.

They also won’t show euthanasia reports and body disposal bills so the donating public can see why they kill horses, how many horses they kill (that don’t appear on their “Rainbow Bridge” pages on their websites) and how they kill horses.

 

This cycle of begging for emergency donations repeats over and over again, sometimes on a daily basis.

These rescues use paypal, go fund me, and other unregulated means of collecting thousands upon thousands of dollars for what are usually “emergencies” or “crisis” because those are the “flash-bang” things that naive people in the public donate to the most.

It caters to people that want to be entertained, that like reality show shenanigans, that have short attention spans, that like to “play” at rescue, that like to tune in and tune out of rescuing when they want to.

They can do all of their rescuing from the comfort and convenience of their home computer, their laptop, their tablet, their smart phone, and liven up what must be boring lives through watching the clownish, narcissistic antics of actors in rescue whose income depends on their ability to provide entertainment that brings money in via their social media presence.

But no one seems to care all that much what happened to the horses (or dogs, or goats, or rabbits, or cats) after the emergency or crisis is done with and the mundane task of caring for rescued animals begins.

 

The only cure for the horrible apathy of people not caring about animals after they are rescued is for people that do care enough being willing to go the extra mile and turn in complaints when the rescues refuse to respond to their questions regarding specifics, have these rescues audited and investigated, and hold them to account for where the animals they’ve rescued are and also where is the donated money.

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)

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:

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.
