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.
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?
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:
*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.
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,
*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.
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.
It IS that easy to become a hero for animals,
to be their voice,
EXPOSING those that will never stop exploiting them,
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
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”?
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:
- don’t understand or know that horse slaughter dealings are illegal in states like California, and have been for nearly 20 years.
- they want so badly to be a part of the excitment, hype, and glitz that these types of horse rescues offer them.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
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:
- contact the California Department of Food and Agriculture via phone at and via email at:
916-654-0466 (Sacramento) General Information
916-654-0462 (Sacramento) Public Affairs
If you are using a TTY/TDD (Text Telephone) dial 1-800-735-2929
If you are using a TRS (Telephone Relay Service) dial 1-800-735-2922
FAX: 916-657-4240 (Sacramento)
Address: California Department of Food and Agriculture
1220 N Street
Sacramento, California, U.S.A. 95814
Hours: Office Hours: 8:00am – 5:00pm | Voice Mail Hours: 5:00pm – 8:00am
and report that “such-and-such horse rescue” (provide their name) is at “such-and such sale” (provide the address and phone # of the sale by Googling that information and also send the Dept. of Ag screenshots of the horse rescue attending the sale publicly identifying kill buyers as being at the sale) and you want a Dept. of Ag officer to go to that sale immediatly, make contact with the horse rescue that has identified the kill buyer/s at that sale, and have them point out the kill buyer/s that are at the sale and have the officer/s make contact with that kill buyer and speak with them regarding their intentions.
2. contact local law enforcement (usually the Sheriff’s office for whatever county the sale operates in – Google that information for the NON-EMERGENCY line.
Here is a link that lists the law enforcement agencies in California:
http://www.usacops.com/ca/) and report the same (also send them screenshots of the rescue publicly identifying kill buyers at the sale they are currently attending) as what you’ve reported to the California Department of Food and Agriculture, and demand that the Sheriff’s office send deputies or other law enforcement officers to that sale immediatly, make contact with whatever horse rescue has reported kill buyers at the sale, and have the rescue identify the kill buyers so that law enforcement can make contact with those kill buyers and determine their intentions and perhaps open an investigation into illegal activities.
3. Contact the California Attorney Generals office and the Secretary of States office that are in charge of over-seeing non-profit rescues and charities operating in their state) via phone at and via email at Report Crime:
https://oag.ca.gov/report-crime and report that a horse rescue is at such-and-such sale yard (give the contact information for the sale yard and make sure you send the AG’s office and the Secretary of Staes office and also law enforcement screenshots of the horse rescue identifying publicly that kill buyers are at the sale) and demand they investigate the sale yard where kill buyers have been identified by the horse rescue as being in attndence buying horses they then are being reported by the horse rescue that they are exporting them for slaughter out of the country (a felony).
4. If horses are on the sale grounds that have been consigned to the sale, or are at the sale yard being bought in the parking lot are identified as being in a neglected and/or abused state, the animal control for that county where the sale yard is being operated NEED to be called and emailed (Google the contact information for whatever animal control is located in the county where the sale is being operated) and demand that animal control goes to the sale, makes contact with the horse rescue that is identifying horses in neglected or abused condition, and have animal control get the horse rescue to identify those horses to them. Animal control also needs to insist that the sale yard explain WHY they have not turned in complaints and reported owners that bring horses to their sale that are in neglected and/or abused condition that either were consigned to the sale, or had them on the sale yard grounds even if not consigned to the sale.
5. Contact the sale yard management that you already have the contact information for and apprise them of the fact that a horse rescue attending their sale has publicly identified kill buyers operating illegally at their sale yard and that law enforcement has been notified , including screenshots of the public announcement by the rescue that kill buyers are at the sale yard, and are hopefully on their way to take a report from the horse rescue, and also from sale yard management regarding alleged illegal activities occurring at the sale yard at the sale/auction.
The same agencies can be contacted, including screen shots, whenever a horse rescue reports that they were at the kill buyers feedlot, that they “work with kill buyers”, or anytime they mention kill buyers operating in Caifornia that they are aware of.
Horse rescues that aren’t striving for enforcement of laws on the books banning and outlawing horse slaughter dealings in that state are suspect as to their motives from not reporting illegal activities and need to be questioned and possibly investigated regarding why they aren’t seeking to have the laws enforced, and instead appear to be actually dealing with kill buyers that are breaking the law.
It 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.
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:
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?
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.
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.
In the new world order in animal-rescue-land of busy-bodies, meddlers, animal rights whack-jobs, informants and DONATION-FUNDED “retail (for profit) rescues” over-seeing and “policing” animal owners, NO ANIMAL OWNERS ARE SAFE FROM ILLEGAL SEIZURE OF THEIR ANIMALS.
Their judgement of and their dislike, hatred, and pettiness toward others, especially those they are jealous of, and also some/many animal rescues greediness regarding receiving free money unaccounted for donations that MANY donation-funded (retail) rescue players literally live off of, knows no bounds, so they will “false report” (which is illegal by-the-way) to TAXPAYER-FUNDED government agencies in order to have their own way, “win”, feel self-righteous” even though they are usually the most INSECURE and COWARDLY people you’ll ever meet.
They will also ramp-up MOBS on social media to back-them-up because dontcha know they NEVER do anything solo because they are COWARDS.
Ask them reasonable questions and what the questioner will usually get is nonsensical drival, lies, embellishment, angry rants, and nearly ALWAYS, NO ANSWERS WITH A BASIS IN FACT FOR THE POSITION THEY HAVE.
These small-minded people, (and its a joke to call them “adults”), that are stuck in the mentality of junior-high school “mean kids” DELIGHT IN RUINING PEOPLES LIVES, AND WHEN ITS AN ANIMAL OWNER THEY’RE GOING AFTER, THEY COULDN’T CARE LESS THAT THEIR BULLSHIT CAUSES NOT ONLY THE ANIMAL OWNERS LIVES TO BE DESTROYED, IT OFTEN CAUSES ANIMALS TO BE KILLED TOO.
At the link below is one of the most recent attacks on innocent animal owners:
The first clue to something wrong with this picture is this quote:
“This is a call we had never received before, so it started off as kind of a joke,” Musser said. “But basically, our investigation led us to a very serious situation.”
Hmm, so we read “This is a call we had never received before, so it started off as kind of a joke,” Musser said
which tells anyone with an IQ above 80 that this guy has absolutely no training, education, or experience with exotic animals.
And not only that, he’s already geared-up to treat this like “it started off as kind of a joke”.
Our 2nd clue to the lunacy of having people with NO EXPERIENCE with exotic animals being in a position to make life-and-death decisions is his brilliant (NOT!) quote of:
“But basically, our investigation led us to a very serious situation.”
So pray tell, how in the world is someone who is geared-up to treat this as a joke, and who also has NO EXPERIENCE with exotic animals, prepared to judge what is a “very serious situation”?!?!
The other absolutely idiotic issue are all the folks in the peanut gallery of non-Einsteins ranting and raving about “the smell”…….really?
What, do they really believe that all animals are like Unicorns that fart rainbows and flowers?
Do these morons actually think that when people have numerous animals, especially exotics, horses, goats, and even ferrets that have not had their scent glands removed (ferrets are very stinky when they have those glands, even if they are bathed often), that there aren’t going to be smells that to the average pet owner are offensive and “unbearable” for the simple reason they’ve never been exposed to what may very well be a natural smell for that species?
If people are having animals seized and being arrested because of the smell of the animals, there are A LOT of zoos that are in BIG TROUBLE (especially in the monkey houses).
People that are put-off because there are odors usually don’t have large numbers of animals inside or outside their house, and often only have a few dogs, a cat, and other domestic critters that are easy enough to manage, bathe everyday if thats what the people that have OCD and are “neat and clean” freaks do (driving their poor ANIMALS crazy and into developing weird behavioral issues- that are NOT little children disguised and dressed in animal costumes – that some of these people actually dress in baby/kids clothes and drive them around in strollers, making normal people KNOW they are imbeciles).
But what they end up doing, proving once again how ignorant they are, is speak utterly moronic, non-factual, lacking-in-experience garbage and incorrect things like they are some kind of experts in species-specific animal husbandry when its as obvious as the nose on ones face that they are NOT..
The actual facts 9 times out of 10 are that some of these jackasses have NO ANIMALS AT ALL, some of them *may* have a few domestic animals (that they probably drive into having vices and behavioral problems because of all the nagging and harping they assault their animals with on a daily basis), and the very closest most of them have ever gotton to exotic animals is at a zoo, or have only seen cows, horses, llamas, etc from afar in a pasture, with some having only been close to any of the aforementioned animals by seeing them on TV.
Then we have the statement:
“The good news is that authorities say it appears that most of the animals are in okay shape”
So since when are animals (supposedly) living in what are to be judged “filthy conditions” by some people making those statements, and that actually appear and sound too inexperienced and unbiasd to be making those kind of judgement calls, grounds for seizing animals and not instead issuing the owners a warning that they have “x number of days” to rectify and correct the situation when MOST OF THE ANIMALS ARE SAID TO BE IN “OKAY SHAPE” as per quotes from “the authorities”?
From this blogger having researched and observed MANY, MANY of these questionable seizures of animals, this whole thing stinks to high Heaven of a set-up designed to defame the owners, steal rare and valuable animals, further the animal rights cause of no one owning animals eventually using TAXPAYER-FUNDED GOVERNMENT AGENCIES TO CARRY OUT THEIR WARPED AGENDA, and also some of the participants that are calling themselves rescues utilizing the situation in order to collect thousands of dollars in donations from gullible people in the public and also attain FREE ANIMALS they can sell.
What would be great is if all of the people attacking this family would PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE, publicly post your addresses and then everyone can come and take a look at your property and your animals.
If you don’t think this very same thing can happen to you as an ANIMAL OWNER, and that animal control, law enforcement, animal rights whack-jobs, and also “for-profit retail rescues” that make a lot of money in donations (off of your misery when you’re attacked) and also by selling free animals they obtain when they do seizure scams and “rescue raids”, won’t come a-callin’ at your house, guess again.
When these control freaks, power-mongers, shysters and grifters see an opportunity to collect thousands of dollars in donations when they ramp-up “social media maddness mobs” to attack you on Facebook, message boards, twitter, instagram and other social media platforms, and when they are getting free animals they sell after dragging you through the mud, you, like MANY OTHERS, can and will find out the hard way it can happen to ANY ANIMAL OWNER, WITH ANY TYPES OF ANIMALS.
Additionally, last time most people looked, we still live in the democratic United States of America and NOT Nazi Germany where people were arrested and disappeared never to be seen or heard from again.
This begs the question of WHY ARE THESE PEOPLES ANIMALS BEING GIVEN AWAY/SOLD AND/OR KILLED BEFORE THESE ANIMAL OWNERS HAVE HAD THEIR DAY/S IN COURT AND BEFORE THEY HAVE EVEN BEEN INVESTIGATED (unless this was a set-up or plot and an “investigation” of sorts has been on-goin – it certainly wouldn’t be the first time that law enforcement teaming up with faux rescues” has done these nasty, low-down, unethical, dirty things)?
So where is the JUSTICE in what is being done to these people?
That’s right, there isn’t ANY!
Most despicable of all is that some of the stolen animals are also being killed because the law breakers that are trampling these peoples rights cannot handle those animals, so they make up stories that the animal is “dangerous”, is “ill”, “can carry diseases”, etc – however, WHERE EXACTLY ARE ALL OF THE VET REPORTS FROM A LICENSED VETERINARIAN ATTESTING TO THESE STATEMENTS (EXCUSES) FOR THE KILLING OF INNOCENT ANIMALS THAT IN FACT WERE MEMBERS OF A FAMILY AND BEING TAKEN CARE OF?!?!
Its not the animals that were seized/stolen and/or the property they were living peacefully at that STINKS!
What STINKS IS THE GESTAPO-LIKE BEHAVIOR OF THE INEXPERIENCED CONTROL FREAKS ABUSING AND OVER-STEPPING THEIR AUTHORITY THAT RAIDED THIS HOUSE, CONFISCATED (STOLE) ANIMALS FROM THEIR HOME, AND ARRESTED THE ANIMAL OWNERS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.
In closing, pertaining to ALL the people in the mob that are attacking these people;
THOSE OF US WITH INTELLIENCE, COMPASSION, EMPATHY AND COMMON SENSE WILL BE WAITING IMPATIENTLY FOR EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU TO PUBLICLY POST YOUR ADDDRESS SO WE CAN COME OVER AND ASSESS EXACTLY HOW YOU KEEP ALL OF YOUR ANIMALS AND ALSO WHAT YOUR PROPERTY LOOKS LIKE.
Going further, ALL OF YOUR DOGS BETTER BE LICENSED, OTHERWISE, THEY SHOULD BE SEIZED AND YOU SHOULD BE ARRESTED FOR NOT ABIDING BY THE LAWS AND RULES OF WHERE YOU LIVE.
“SELECTIVE ENFORCEMENT” should NEVER BE TOLERATED because it is unfair and illegal. If you aren’t abiding by all of the rules, regs, and laws, prepare for complaints going to your local authorities to be coming in by the hundreds regarding you and your law-breaking.
Is that a threat?
Nope, its a promise to make sure “selective enforcement” doesn’t happen just because YOU think you’re squeaky clean and above the law.
We’ll probably be waiting a really long time for the posting of these ignorant peoples addresses (although, its probably easy enough for people to look them up under their names and publicly post them using websites like Instant Checkmate at https://www.instantcheckmate.com/ ) to happen because your ilk are PURE COWARDS and are only “brave” (NOT!) big mouths from the safety of your own homes, which are OFTEN hundreds, if not thousands of miles away from where innocent peoples lives are being wrecked, ruined, and destroyed, and their beloved animals are being SOLD AND ALSO KILLED (LIKE BROKEN MERCHANDISE).
Coming soon is the means for innocent animal owners who have been attacked on seizures of their animals and their illegal arrests, and also who are being libeled and slandered, to affordably file civil lawsuits and sue all parties that participated in the seizure, and also those cowards in the mindless mob on the Internet that think they are untouchable whom are libeling and slandering them.
Stay tuned for that annoiuncement that WILL make “the noise in numbers” of the mindless mobs that are attacking, threatening, stalking and defaming STOP IT, or else they WILL be smacked in the wallet.
In the meantime, anyone that wants to find out exactly WHO the participants in this raid are should send them some of the questions contained on the 1 page information sheet and questionnaire at the link below.
Their failure to answer any questions is indicative of the BS and cruel manipulations being perpetrated on the gullible, trusting public and leads those “in the know” to believe that not all is at it seems regarding this seizure of animals and the arrest of their owners.
The woman discussed in the lengthy article at the link below is a sociopath/psychopath, a very accomplished liar and a con artist that ran frauds in 3 countries and wasted alot of law enforcement and other government agencies money trying to “help” her regarding the fictional scenarios she is running.
Not to mention the many gullible, trusting people she USED AND LIED TO that were also trying to help her after she spoke her tales of woe and abuse.
An excerpt from the article:
On the afternoon of October 10, 2013, an unusually cold day, the streets of downtown Dublin were filled with tourists and people leaving work early. In their midst, one young woman stood out. She seemed dazed and distressed as she wandered down O’Connell Street, looking around timidly, a helpless-seeming terror in her eyes. She stopped in front of the post office, or, as locals would have it, the G.P.O. Standing between the thick columns, she looked even more forlorn. She was dressed in a purple hoodie under a gray wool sweater; tight, darkly colored jeans; and flat, black shoes. Her face was ashen. She was shivering. A passerby, stunned by her appearance, asked if she needed help. She looked at him mutely, as if not quite grasping the essence of the question. Somebody called the police. An officer from the Store Street garda station answered the call. He took her to a hospital. It seemed the best thing to do.
She was a teen-ager—fourteen or fifteen, at most. At five feet six, she weighed just more than eighty-eight pounds. Her long, blond hair covered a spiny, battered back. Once she did talk, some days later, it became clear that she had only the most rudimentary grasp of English—not enough to say who she was or why she’d appeared as she had. But the girl could draw. And what she drew made her new guardians catch their breaths. One stifled a gasp. One burst out crying. There she was, a small stick-like figure, being flown to Ireland on a plane. And there she was again, lying on a bed, surrounded by multiple men. She seemed to be a victim of human trafficking—one of the lucky ones who had somehow managed to escape.
Stories bring us together. We can talk about them and bond over them. They are shared knowledge, shared legend, and shared history; often, they shape our shared future. Stories are so natural that we don’t notice how much they permeate our lives. And stories are on our side: they are meant to delight us, not deceive us—an ever-present form of entertainment.
That’s precisely why they can be such a powerful tool of deception. When we’re immersed in a story, we let down our guard. We focus in a way we wouldn’t if someone were just trying to catch us with a random phrase or picture or interaction. (“He has a secret” makes for a far more intriguing proposition than “He has a bicycle.”) In those moments of fully immersed attention, we may absorb things, under the radar, that would normally pass us by or put us on high alert. Later, we may find ourselves thinking that some idea or concept is coming from our own brilliant, fertile minds, when, in reality, it was planted there by the story we just heard or read.
The article at the link above is a long read, but well worth the time because of the insight it gives into how con-artists minds work.
Kind compassionate people cannot even imagine that someone would weave such a deceptive web of lies in order for that person to profit and gain, but people like the woman in this story in fact do it over, and over, and over again – even after they are caught doing it, investigated, prosecuted, fined, and sometimes even jailed.
What they leave in their wake are destroyed and ruined lives, people have lost any sense of trust, and people feel foolish they didn’t know they were being conned.
Because there are currently so many pathological liars and sociopaths operating donation-funded adoption-based animal (retail) rescues that spin their tall tales of mostly fiction with a tiny bit of fact mixed in to add legitiamacy to the “rescue” of animals in order to get donation money from their gullible “marks” and “useful idiots” in the public sector, approx. 30 animal rescues have been sent the `1 page questionnaire at the link below, which contains mostly “yes” or “no” answers the rescues can choose from, and NONE of them have filled out the pertinent information that any legitimate rescue should not have a problem disclosing, and NONE of them will answer any questions.
It begs the question – “exactly what is the problem with answering questions that go to the accountability and transparency of an animal rescue (that MOST brag that they are)”?
What exactly IS THE PROBLEM regarding providing current photo and video documentation of “rescued animals”?
You know, the innocent animals that hundreds of thousands of donation dollars paid for the animals “rescue”.
It should be easy to provide CURRENT PHOTOS AND VIDEOS of each and every animal rescued in the past year taken at the main rescue facility, at their “satellite facilities”, “at the trainers”, in foster homes, etc?
Since many of these rescues won’t and can’t tell the truth, even if the lives of their kids depended on it because the TRUTH would expose them as swindlers, it’s just not good enough regarding what “they say”.
Providing PROOF that rescued animals are alive and well should be EASY since responsible rescues have stringent adoption and foster contracts.
If rescued animals really are “at the trainers” (one rescue has said they have over 70 horses “at the trainers”, which is absurd and obviously a bald-faced lie because of the monthly cost alone), assuredly most trainers would love the free advertising the rescue would be providing for them by posting the trainers location and contact information and some photos and videos of the horses being trained.
Pray tell, why do so many of these donation-funded rescues REFUSE to SIMPLY provide details of rescued animals whereabouts besides the FACT that they CAN’T because the innocent, “rescued” animal is MOST LIKELY dead and GONE?
When primarily or entirely donation-funded animal rescues refuse to answer simple questions such as posting vet reports the “rescue” ‘says’ they have, and verifying WHERE ALL OF THE RESCUED ANIMALS ARE, and other simple things, THAT IS A RED FLAG, HOLY SHIT INDICATOR THAT NO ONE SHOULD SUPPORT THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE MOST LIKELY RUNNING A CON ON PEOPLE USING INNOCENT ANIMALS AS PAWNS TO HAVE GULLIBLE DONORS SEND MORE, AND MORE FREE MONEY THAT THESE SCAMMERS LIVE OFF OF BECAUSE MOST OF THE FOUNDERS AND PRIMARY PLAYERS AT RETAIL RESCUES DO NOT HAVE JOBS BESIDES “RESCUE” AND HAVE MADE “RESCUE” THEIR CAREER.
Asking questions of these liars and psychopaths is like kryptonite is to superman, or water is to the wicked witch of the west:
IT DESTROYS THEM BECAUSE PEOPLE CAN FACT CHECK, VERIFY ANY ANSWERS THEY GIVE, COMPARE ANSWERS WITH ANSWERS GIVEN TO OTHER PEOPLE AND FIND OUT WHO THE SCAM ARTISTS, GRIFTERS AND CONS ARE THAT ARE SIMPLY OPPORTUNISTS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF AN OPPORTUNITY IN THE ANIMAL RESCUE INDUSTRY TO CONVINCE AND CONNIVE MONEY OUT OF TRUSTING AND GULLIBLE PEOPLE IN THE PUBLIC THAT WILL NEVER ASK THESE GRIFTERS QUESTIONS BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO TIMID and/or DUMB.
Because of these scammers operating in reality-show-antics, circus sideshow donation-funded animal rescue, a certain amount of cynacism must be brought to the table in order so that innocent animals aren’t first used to get in donations for yet another unbelievable, “dramatic” ‘rescue’ and then are killed or disappeared by the “rescue” after “sorting” when it is discovered the animal is UNADOPTABLE WITH OR WITHOUT A FEE AND THE “RESCUE” IS NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF FEEDING ANIMALS they can’t get rid of quickly in order to bring in more animals USING DONATION MONEY, sometimes through multiple, questionable online accounts that are difficult to trace except through forensic accounting.
Real animal lovers that aren’t SIMPLETONS and IMBECILES literally addicted to tuning-in for the reality-show bullshit that is often as fake as a $3 bill, do their RESEARCH, AND IF A RESCUE CAN’T BE BOTHERED TO FILL OUT A SIMPLE QUESTIONNAIRE WITH INFORMATION ABOUT THEIR RESCUE, BACKGROUND INFO ON THEIR PRIMARY PARTICIPANTS AT THE RESCUE (WHETHER THEY ARE PAID OR ARE VOLUNTEERS), THEIR EXPERIENCE WITH ANIMALS, THEIR FINANCIALS REGARDING “DESIGNATED FUNDRAISERS” THAT SO MANY RESCUES ARE ALWAYS RUNNING, WHERE DO ALL OF THE ANIMALS THEY RESCUE END UP, AND OTHER NON-COMPLICATED QUESTIONS, THEY DON’T SUPPORT THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE MOST LIKELY TELLING TALL TALES, SPEWING LIES, EMBELLISHMENTS AND BULLSH*T, AND YOU ARE SIMPLY A “MARK” AND “USEFUL IDIOT” THAT IS SUPPORTING THEIR SCAM.
When do animal loving and animal owner tax paying citizens finally DEMAND accountability by TAX PAYER FUNDED GOVERNMENT AGENCIES SUCH AS ANIMAL CONTROLS AND THE DEPARTMENT OF AG?
And when do the aforementioned TAXPAYER-FUNDED government agencies investigate, cite, and maybe even prosecute the people that are habitual “false reporters” that are constantly USING these TAXPAYER-FUNDED GOVERNMENT AGENCIES SUCH AS ANIMAL CONTROLS, THE DEPARTMENT OF AG AND OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES to attack their neighbors, people they don’t like, people they may be having an issue with, etc and have these agencies running around investigating things over, and over, and over again with animal owners animals that aren’t based in FACT, and in the case of people that have kids and/or take care of elderly family members, they USE Child Protective Services and Elder Abuse Services to get at them?
False reporting is AGAINST THE LAW, so why don’t the DA’s in counties, cities, and towns slap these habitual complainers with a warning if they continue to false report if the agency has followed through on a first complaint and told them everything is fine and no laws are being broken, or they are going to perhaps monitor a situation, cite them if they keep doing it after they’ve been told it is being handled, and smack them in the wallet to teach them a lesson about being nasty, petty, and lying if they keep doing it?
What we’re talking about here is when animal controls and the Dept. of AG “partner” and even collude with animal rescues, sanctuaries, and animal advocates when they perform seizures and “rescue raids” on animal owners.
Currently, these TAX PAYER-FUNDED GOVERNMENT AGENCIES rarely, if ever, “vet” these privatized rescues, sanctuaries, and advocates when they “team up” to do seizures and raids on often innocent animal owners not guilty of doing anything wrong.
These agencies do these “partnerships” without performing any due diligence on rescues, rescuers, sanctuaries, or advocates regarding doing anything in the way of background checks, criminal record history checking, finding out if they are registered as a non-profit in good standing, checking their financials and their ability to rescue using their own funds and not those of tax paying citizens and donors they fool into sending them money in order to sometime/often literally steal animal owners personal property animals, what happens to ALL OF THE ANIMAL AFTER THEY ARE SUPPOSEDLY “RESCUED” FROM BAD HOMES, how many animals they adopt out, how many are euthanized, where are ALL of the “rescued animals” months after they were rescued, where is every penny of “designated donation money” and tax payer funds spent, and a myriad of other questions the regular people in the public have but rarely if ever get answers too when they ask the question of the government agencies whose salaries they pay with their tax dollars, and also the “rescues” these agencies have elected to “partner” and often collude with.
These are all SIMPLE QUESTIONS THAT SHOULD BE SIMPLE TO ANSWER, BUT IN THE COLLUSION AND “PARTNERING” THAT EXISTS between these agencies and the “rescues”, answers of any kind are rarely forthcoming.
This VAST LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY, FACT CHECKING, BACKGROUND CHECKING, ETC, leads many people to believe there are a bunch of “sweetheart deals” being worked out that part animal owners from their animals in the most horrible kinds of ways, people are pocketing taxpayer and donation money by the thousands of dollars, animals are disappearing and dying all over the place, and there is a bunch of backdoor dealing going on, and also oodles of “selective enforcement”of rules that should apply to everyone, and not just when those in positions of power decide to enforce them.
The next time people in the public hear about yet another confiscation of someones animals that are often beloved family members, remember, YOU COULD BE NEXT IN THIS GESTAPO-LIKE CLIMATE of government agency over-reach, and with animal rescues that so far don’t have to answer questions from those in the public because of a vast lack of oversight and enforcement of laws, rules, and regulations that are on the books with government agencies VESTED WITH REGULATING NONPROFIT DONATION-FUNDED (FREE MONEY) ANIMAL RESCUES.
For some reason – “kickbacks” and “greased palms” perhaps? – taxpayer funded government agencies perform NO DUE DILIGENCE, THEY DON’T THOROUGHLY CRIMINALLY AND FINANCIALLY BACKGROUND CHECK THE RESCUES AND ADVOCATES THEY “PARTNER” WITH AND COLLUDE WITH, AND A LOT OF PALMS ARE BEING GREASED AND PEOPLE ARE HAVING BIG PAYDAYS IT IS GUARANTEED when these crooks get together to make money and be the big shots.
When government agencies and donation-funded animal rescues don’t answer questions asked in good faith by the public that pay their salaries, and that goes to accountability, their motivation for doing what they’re doing, and transparency, something is dreadfully wrong.
No one should support these agencies or rescues unless questions are answered in an honest and timely manner – there should be no unanswered questions regarding the credentials of those at the taxpayer funded agencies, the rescues, the sanctuaries, and the credentials that can be verified for the advocates.
There also shouldn’t be any problem when inquiring minds want to know and want to scrutinize taxpayer-funded agencies, and also primarily, or entirely donation-funded rescues financials, who is getting taxpayers money, who is getting donation money, exactly what the money is being used for, WHERE ARE ALL OF THE ANIMALS LANDING, publicly post ALL VET REPORTS and EUTHANASIA REPORTS written by licensed veterinarians that aren’t afraid to hang their ass in the wind and state facts and not fiction.
To that end, please people, have the courage, resolve and tenacity to send the 1 page short form information sheet and questionnaire at the link below to all government agencies and/or rescues involved in doing seizures of animals BEFORE you support them in any way.
Make sure you get answers, don’t allow them to side-step you, don’t allow them to bully you, don’t prove them right regarding YOU have a short attention span and no follow through, and make sure you get answers that protect animals and people from scam-artists raping the system over and over again.
If they refuse to answer the SIMPLE QUESTIONS on the questionnaire, they DO NOT DESERVE YOUR SUPPORT, they DO NOT DESERVE YOUR MONEY AND THEY IN FACT DESERVE TO HAVE COMPLAINTS FILED AGAINST THEM FOR REFUSING TO ANSWER SIMPLE QUESTIONS from taxpayers and donors that keep their agencies and organizations operating.
Many of the primary players at the animal rescues and sanctuaries DO NOT have jobs outside of rescue and advocacy, SO EXACTLY HOW DO THEY PAY THEIR BILLS, TAKE VACATIONS, FEED THEIR FAMILY’S, BUY PERSONAL ITEMS NOT RELATED TO ANIMAL RESCUE, ETC?
And never forget, you could be taking great care of your animals, but cross the wrong person, piss someone off, have animals that are valuable enough for resale BY ANIMAL DEALERS POSING AS RESCUES CALLING IT “ADOPTION-FOR-A-FEE”, and YOU in fact could be the next animal owner to be on the receiving end of a seizure scam or rescue raid, with hoards of “useful idiot” people on social media being incited and ramped-up into hateful, violent, vicious, attacking, stalking, smearing, trashing mobs, whose only goal they have have been pointed toward by their “handlers” at the DONATION-FUNDED “rescues”and TAXPAYER-FUNDED GOVERNMENT AGENCIES is ruining YOU.
They have no consciences and all they care about is making money, receiving praise and accolades, and having power over others to feed their enormous egos because most of them are insecure, pompous narcissists that have never achieved anything worthwhile in their lives that demands hard work, integrity, honesty, honor, and compassion for animals and people alike.
These are basically lazy people that use everyone around them, ESPECIALLY THE DRAMA-PROVOKED USEFUL IDIOT PEOPLE IN THE MOBS THEY RAMP-UP ON SOCIAL MEDIA THAT DO THEIR DIRTY WORK FOR THEM FREE-OF-CHARGE JUST SO THEY CAN GET THEIR “CRISIS RESCUE FIX”, to get what they want and then throw the “useful idiots” in the mob away if any questions are asked, or if they are at all challenged with questions, and they also kill animals that have exhausted their “donation-value” and have physical and/or behavioral issues that render them un-adoptable.
Here’s that simple questionnaire below.
For the “useful idiots” out in rescue-land, you don’t need to do a thing because you people don’t want to know the truth about the animal rescue you are supporting and those animal dealers posing as “rescues” that you support are laughing their way to the bank after each successful rescue raid and the committing of FRAUD that they COULD NOT ACCOMPLISH without your “noise and numbers” (numbers of people making a lot of noise with phone calls, emails, comments, etc to harass the smiley-face, glad-handing politicians in cities, counties, and states into “doing something” even though “something” doesn’t necessarily need to be done).
For the small-minded, mean-spirited people that USE TAXPAYER FUNDED GOVERNMENT AGENCIES TO FILE FALSE REPORTS ON OTHER PEOPLE, be aware that false reporting is a CRIME and you may/will be held accountable criminally by the government agency you false reported too, and also perhaps in a civil lawsuit brought against you by the victims of your false reporting, your stalking behavior and your defamation – some people don’t just cringe in fear from your evil manipulations and waste of other taxpayers money and your unacceptable behavior may very well come back and bite you in the ass.
For the smart, concerned people in the public sector that pay taxes, send the questionnaire to government agencies to find out if they will answer the questions – seriously, don’t fair-minded people want to KNOW THE FACTS BEFORE they join up and support issues, movements, and activities?
It should also be REQUIRED as part of the “vetting” process that any and all animal rescues, sanctuaries, and advocates complete it BEFORE “partnering” with taxpayer-funded government agencies, and also BEFORE they receive even one thin dime from anyone.
