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.
Interesting blog post at the link below that speaks to animals being given away for free by rescues, animal controls, humane societies, or animal owners.
And while this can be a double-edged sword, there are some good arguments for giving animals for free to good homes, especially if the home is checked out at least a little bit, while not being as intrusive as some of the rescues adoption applications are, and also with the rescues right to take animals back for no good reason whatsoever.
More importantly, this blog post also speaks of the value of all life and “where there is life, there is hope” aspect too:
Quoted from the blog at the link:
“Dismissing a group as a whole because of misconceptions about who wants free pets is keeping shelter animals out of homes. And that means resources are tied up, pets are kept in cages or taking up valuable space in foster homes, and tragically for millions of shelter pets every year, it means they end up in the kill room.
This is usually where the folks who like to say “There are fates worse than death” chime in. Let me be clear: There are no fates worse than death. Where there is life, there is hope. While I am in no way denying that animal abusers exist, I know that they represent a tiny minority of pet owners and that at least some of them are willing to pay for the pets they abuse. (Does the name Michael Vick ring any bells?) Most people try to do right by their pets and love them as family members. Most adoption applicants will fall into this category, regardless of the fee being charged for the animal.
While Nathan Winograd advocates for reasonable adoption screening, a practice I too support, he makes clear that even without screening, adopted is better than dead:
[I]n shelters where animals are being killed by the thousands, and where they are horrifically neglected and abused in the process, I’d rather they do “open adoptions” if it means getting more animals out of there and doing so quicker because in truth, there is no greater threat to companion animals in this country than the so-called “shelter” in the community where those animals reside. Shelter killing is the leading cause of death for healthy companion animals in the U.S.
[I]f the worst thing that could happen to them if we gave them away is the very thing that will happen to […] them if they stay at the shelter, is the cost-benefit analysis even close?”
With all that being said regarding animals being given away for free, an exception perhaps could and should be made in the case of horses wherever livestock auctions, sales, horse traders/dealers, and “kill buyer’s” exist.
In the case of horses (considered non-food chain animals in many areas of the world) being given away for free that kill buyers and/or horse traders troll the CL, bulletin boards and other ad’s for, here is what often happens:
The opportunists that are horse traders/dealers and/or kill buyers secure an entirely free horse from someone that either wants out from under the feed and maintenance costs of the horse, the horses owner died and the family that inherited the horse is “getting rid of them” as family’s have a tendency to do, or the horses owner actually “trusts” the trader or kill buyer because most of these folks are fine actors when it suits them to be and can spin very nice stories to soothe peoples fears. They also sometimes bring their kids with them to act as “props” to convince the horse owner “we’ll take really good care of your horse” or “the kids have been wanting a horse for the longest time”.
They then *may* take the free horse home and see if the horse has any value for “flipping” for a profit or not.
If the horse has no value for any “use or purposes” for anyone because of physical issues, or its apparent they are wild/not-worth-training or have other issues that will keep them from being sold for decent money, a horse trader will take them straight to the local livestock kill sale that many areas of the country have running every week where a kill buyer usually buys them and they ship to inhumane and cruel commercial slaughter (and commercial horse slaughter is NEVER humane, and anyone who say’s it is has some type of involvement in the commercial horse slaughter industry, or they are ignorant of the facts).
In the case of a kill buyer getting a free horse, the result is the same if the horse has no value to be sold to a private party, but the horse is not run through a sale and is shipped to slaughter from the feedlot.
So while it is true “where there is life, there is hope” as mentioned in the blog at the link above, tell that to the horses that are given away for free and are subjected to inhumane commercial horse slaughter if, and in some areas, when they are given to the wrong people.
Also tell that to those that DO value life and are subjected to being attacked by busy-bodies-trolling neighborhoods, a la Nazi Germany where nasty people turned-in their neighbors for a multitude of so-called “infractions”.
People that take in unwanted horses with various physical and/or behavioral issues are also targets for donation-funded “retail rescues” running their “crisis rescues” that are guaranteed to bring in thousands upon thousands of dollars in free donation money (if “crisis rescues” didn’t have the monetary desired affect of FREE donation money coming in, these horse traders and dealers posing as “rescues” wouldn’t do them).
They USE these types of horses/animals with issues, that fewer and fewer people are taking care of because of more and more “seizure scam” and “rescue raid” attacks occurring in epidemic proportions all over the country (mostly because social media like Facebook is real time and makes it VERY EASY to ramp-up attacking MOBS within hours and a few days), to make themselves look good, to attain free donation money in order to “rescue” horses, and also to attain FREE horses they can SELL.
One would think these people are valued in the scheme of things for taking care of animals no one else wants because of how they look, handling issues they have, illness, acute and chronic conditions, etc.
However, they are instead OFTEN and REGULARLY TARGETS for ATTACK by ignorant people cruising neighborhoods and false reporting to tax-payer-funded government agencies.
Or they are stalked and attacked by donation-funded retail rescues with their own agenda such as “putting their name on the map” in the rescue world by ramping up mobs and media to swarm animal owners under the guise of “rescue” so that they receive thousands upon thousands of dollars in donations from naïve and gullible people, and also have horses they get entirely for FREE that they then SELL under the labeling of “adoption”.
These people, that are regularly targets for attack by the aforementioned culprits, take in unwanted horses (and often other animals as well) that have physical issues whereby they will never look O.K., no matter how well taken care of they are, and just as with people, animals can have issues that prevent them from fattening up, or even being in “normal weight”, or they may have acute and chronic illnesses and conditions (such as the “popped knees” in the photo above) that keep them from being useable for anything, looking decent by any stretch of the imagination, they are old and arthritic, etc.
The common theme that is NOT in doubt for compassionate people that really KNOW animals is that they still want to LIVE, and NOT be KILLED, AFTER their “sympathy/pity donation-value” is exhausted and the “rescue” kills or “disappears” them to parts unknown to MOST people, but NOT ALL people that KNOW exactly where they end up and have documented proof of it occurring.
Even with “issues”, the fact remains that the horses/animals still want to live even if they don’t look so good, even when they have psychological issues, and even when they have trouble moving around.
The horse in the photo above has a condition known as lipoma’s – more information regarding lipoma’s on horses, dogs, and cats at this link: http://www.earthclinic.com/cures/lipoma.html) – and their expression and posture are good – THAT is NOT a horse that wants to be KILLED just because they are unable to be used for anything other than a pasture pet.
Make no mistake however; if that horse is given away for free, there is a good possibility they will go to commercial horse slaughter.
They would also most probably be KILLED by a retail rescue AFTER all of the donations that could be collected on them were collected during a seizure scam or rescue raid “crisis rescue”
Because most people don’t want a horse with issues such as that, and the retail rescues are NOT “in the business” of caring for and maintaining for months and years those horses (and other animals depending on what type of retail rescue they are) that can’t or won’t “do” anything for anyone.
Donation-funded retail rescues KILL unwanted horses in various ways such as chemical euthanasia, shooting (which done correctly is considered humane), hauling them to carnivore sanctuaries where they are shot and fed to the meat-eaters, using middlemen and funneling them into the commercial horse slaughter pipeline, etc, because rarely does anyone ever ask to see ALL vet reports and ALL euthanasia reports on horses “rescued” using free donation money the rescues don’t have to account for to anyone if they don’t want to.
With the horses that have behavioral issues or are totally untrained at an age beyond where they will ever be trained to be easily handled, they too want to LIVE, and people that take in these unwanted horses provide them with a home to do just that – LIVE – but in the current climate of “witch hunts” using social media, they are OFTEN TARGETS FOR ATTACK by master manipulators posing as “rescues” and “rescuers”.
The HUGE issue for people that take in these types of horses are that in the climate and environment of the emergence of social media being “real time” and people often never being face-to-face with those they are accusing and attacking (unless they have a gang or posse with them as “protection” against one-on-one discussion), it is easy for manipulators to “get the word out” through “Sharing” on Facebook and message boards, people that don’t even know what’s going on Share “the story” again and again, mainstream media is often called and they get involved in what *may* be a dramatic, exciting, and sensationalized story that they are ALWAYS looking for, and the attack just takes off and goes viral, with kind-hearted, compassionate animal owners that take in the throw-away animals, that often have animals they have had for many years that are not rescues and they look and at fine (very good animals the retail rescues LOVE to get their hands on for FREE), being viciously ATTACKED.
Then the politicians in the county, town, or city, in order to cover their own asses, attack their own tax-paying citizens without speaking to those animal owners that are being targeted for attack and WITHOUT EVER CHECKING the credentials, the background, the references, or delving into the accusers HISTORY of stalking and rallying mobs on social media to attack animal owners.
This is because they are too busy TRYING to please the ridiculous and absurd “social media madness mobs” so they look like they’re “doing something for the supposed abused and neglected animals” instead of them performing their DUE DILIGENCE as responsible TAX-PAYER FUNDED government agencies would do if they weren’t responding to, and being dominated and steered by a retail rescue and the MOBS they ramp-up instead.
THEN, and as nonsensical and absurd as this all sounds like “there is NO WAY this could ever happen in this day-and-age, it then frequently enters the realm of conspiracy and collusion with a “rescue” or individuals in the commission of fraud and cyber terrorism and the local government literally HELPING them HASN’T EVEN CHECKED THEM OUT! – MORE on this later.
Can we say the same climate of distrust, stalking, “spying” on other people, brown-nosing, and wanting to garner favor with influential people and/or those with money as in Nazi Germany in the late-’30’s and during WWII?
People wanting to be idolized as “saving animals from horrible owners” and they turn into busy-bodies attacking people with animals and/or “RETAIL RESCUES” dominating the social media scene (they are master manipulators, they embellish and lie with abandon, they are constantly asking, pleading, and begging for donations, and they will NOT answer simple questions they don’t want to answer because it could expose their shady dealings), marketing themselves there, ramping-up mobs on the Internet to attack animal owners, collecting donations from all over the world when they run yet another “crisis rescue”, people that already have and/or still take in the USELESS and WORTHLESS horses (and other animals with issues) are regularly TARGETS of ATTACK and are assaulted under the guise of “rescue” by scam-artists posing as rescues and they are subjected to “rescue raids” and “seizure scams”, sometimes with “help” being offered, which is actually an extortion attempt that in a nutshell is “give us what we want or we will “go public” and will trash you, drag your name through the mud, make so much noise with our mobs we rally within hours that will get you arrested, and we WILL destroy you”.
This “help” involves the “rescue” “cherry picking” the horses worth the most for sympathy/pity donation money (that are often killed or “disappeared” after their ‘donation-value’ is exhausted and they can’t be sold because they have physical and/or behavioral issues) and also highly adoptable (SELLABLE) horses they can first pull-in donations on, and then SELL.
In order for people that take in horses with physical and/or behavioral/training issues to be PROTECTED from assaults by “retail rescues”, before jumping into the seizure scam fray, intelligent people need to ASK QUESTIONS of the rescue that is involved in the seizure.
This questionnaire below illustrates some pertinent questions that can and should be posed to ANYONE that portrays themselves as “concerned about someone’s animals”, and also to donation-funded-rescues that engage in “rescuing” horses, using donation money, from auctions and sales, or through seizures of horses “partnering” with tax-payer-funded animal controls and other government agencies.
To the caring, animal-loving people in “the public” and also the politicians in the counties, cities, or towns that are in “the public eye” and are being harassed into “doing something” where “something” perhaps doesn’t NEED to be done, PLEASE be willing to ASK QUESTIONS, CHECK CREDENTIALS, CHECK BACKGROUNDS, and CHECK PEOPLES and RESCUES HISTORY’S BEFORE going along with their DEMANDS for “something” to be done.
What you all may find out is that the individuals and/or rescues involved in “turning people in” have a pattern-of-deception, they will not answer questions posed to them (thus the easy to send, easy to fill out, and easy to return questionnaire above that makes it simple and easy for people to ask questions), they *sometimes* have documented criminal history’s of VARIOUS types of fraud, “check kiting”, theft, money laundering, etc, and they quite often ONLY go after people they have a dispute with, a whistleblower that is “outing” them, someone they don’t like for some reason, or someone that has, and takes care of, “animals with issues” that the individual or “rescue” can make money off of and/or that make them look like “heroes” and “real rescuers”, when they often are not.
It NEVER hurts to ASK QUESTIONS if individuals and/or “rescues” are rallying “the public” to support them, donate to them, supposedly “be their voice for the animals”, be their MOB to attack, etc.
And before you think you couldn’t be the victim of a scam regarding helping a donation-funded retail rescue supposedly “save animals”, and that triggers your emotions, observe this gentleman on the Dr. Phil Show episode on YouTube from February 2015 that is so wrapped-up in the excitement and drama (sound familiar similar to “crisis rescues” the retail rescues are constantly running where they are always begging for donations?) of “saving” the “love of his life” that is “stranded” in Nigeria, he had thus far invested well over $100,000 trying to “help her” and it is exposed as being a scam:
When people not “in the know” don’t ask questions and become a “sheeple” following blindly and stupidly along, those naïve and foolish people, after they have gone back to their “regular lives” and have forgotten about “helping”/attacking, may well find themselves on the receiving end of a civil lawsuit if they wrongly and unjustly attacked people they didn’t even know, lives were shattered, and some of those peoples family of animals were ultimately KILLED before their time.
The killing of animals BEFORE their time by individuals and/or donation-funded “rescues” that portray themselves as “helping” is entirely UNFORGIVEABLE, so please ASK QUESTIONS first, and expect ANSWERS, otherwise people that don’t ask questions may have their lives disrupted because victims are seeking JUSTICE so their animals didn’t die in vain.
