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.
The story at the link below demonstrates ALL of the elements of an ILLEGAL seizure scam or rescue raid.
We have “the neighbor” whose been complaining about this veterinarians horses for years according to the “reporter” on the scene and they are USING TAX PAYER-FUNDED government agencies to go after people they have some kind of “problem” with.
Then there is the “rescue” that appears to be behaving just like a “retail rescue” and is NOT really there to “help” the owner of the horses and the horses but we can bet a million dollars NO ONE has checked THEM out and run background checks on them – not even the District Attorney!
We have a tax payer-funded government agency (the DA’s office) appearing to be in on the scam that MOST LIKELY doesn’t even have ANY, or much of any, information on this handy-dandy animal rescue loading up and literally STEALING someone’s horses because all that the so-called rescue has to say to anyone is “we’re a rescue” and everyone “call’s it good”.
And finally, no seizure scam is complete without bringing in the MEDIA to sensationalize the whole event so the donation-dollars come pouring into the “rescues” coffers because they USUALLY DO NOT have money of their OWN to take care of animals because most, if not all, of the primary players at the “rescue” don’t have JOBS outside of rescue because “rescue is their job” (must be nice to collect free money using the media and the District Attorney’s office to do it!):
Is there some kind of law in Texas that makes it a crime if animal owners own and care for acute or chronically ill animals, old animals, injured animals, etc?
If yes, than that “rescue” and that DA that got the search warrant are going to be kept very, very busy going after any and all people that have animals that are not in prime condition at all times.
If there is not a law that says animal owners cannot own and take care of various types of animals in various phase of their lives, than why the heck were ALL of these animals seized, without at the very least, another vet first being hired to come to the property, run blood panels, examine horses hands-on, etc?
Furthermore, why is the media in there on this at all?
Oh, that’s right, because its NOT a successful what the FBI calls an Animal Enterprise Terrorism (AET) attack aka “seizure scam” or “rescue raid” without the media blasting the story sensationally all over the airwaves.
The newscaster comes right out and say’s on the video the horses are being starved.
How does she know that?
How does anyone know that?
How does anyone know why some of the horses may be thin, or even skinny?
Are people really so like sheep being led and manipulated by others as to think that horses don’t get sick, whether acutely or chronically, they don’t get old and have old age conditions, or perhaps have their up’s and downs in weight for a multitude of reasons – JUST LIKE PEOPLE HAVE sometimes/often because of various conditions, the phase of life they’re in, or sometimes people are skinny/thin for no known reason whatsoever.
And just because many of the women involved in animal rescue tend to be on the stocky, chunky, or sometimes obese side (not politically correct to write that, but it is something that is true and has to be pointed out) does not mean that its healthy for horses, or other animals, to be fat – it is NOT.
The horse owner should sue in a civil suit the you-know-what out of the county, the “rescue”, and the news station for them saying the horses are being starved when they couldn’t know that for sure unless evaluations, blood tests like CBC’s, and other diagnostics are done.
Without knowing that information on the horses, these horses may end up being fed and taken care of improperly by the rescue (MANY horses end up with acute laminitis episodes that are life threatening and often lead to chronic founder/sore-footedness issues, they have severe colic caused by gas (considered a “moving impaction”), obstructions, the cecum is over-loaded and endo-toxins are released, aggressive deworming leads to a major die-off of parasites that cause blockages, enteritis, horses going off feed and water that leads to electrolyte imbalances which is also life-threatening, animals can have severe reactions to being loaded up on 3, 4, and 5-way vaccines, etc) that no one probably has any background information that can be FACT-CHECKED on, as very few in the media, even though they’re supposed to be “reporters”, do, or the government agencies do either, because it appears to be “good enough” to just say “we’re a rescue”.
People that are suspicious of donation-funded animal rescues, that thus far have no oversight of being required to answer questions, will send them the questionnaire contained in the blog at this link, and also at the bottom of this blog post:
Interested parties should also read the statement issued by Dr. Don Henneke, the inventor of the body condition scoring system (BCS) for horses, before he passed away in 2012. He notes these seizures are occurring in epidemic numbers and the rescues are vastly mis-using his body condition scale:
And finally, for a run-down of how these “rescue raids” work, visit this link:
People should be ashamed of themselves for enabling disgruntled neighbors, “retail rescues”, and other individuals and entities to literally USE tax payer funded government agencies for their own gain and fulfill whatever warped agenda they have, whether just because they are angry at someone, someone is competitive with them in whatever area (donation-funded animal rescues ARE HIGHLY competitive with one another for FREE MONEY donations and a following and “Likes” on FB, so they are often at each other throats trying to “take out” their competition – MONEY CORRUPTS!), etc.
These seizure scams and rescue raids, where ALL of the animals are seized instead of “rescues” only taking the ones in debilitated, ill, or injured condition (and why are ALL of the animals taken on these seizures? The answer is in this blog post, and also in other of the blog posts written by the same author), are life-ruining, not just for the animals owner, but also for many of the animals after they’ve supposedly been “rescued”, but are then found to have physical and/or behavioral “issues” whereby they cannot be adopted out and these rescues get rid of them, or kill them in various ways and NO ONE CARES because they ONLY LOVE the drama and excitement of a “crisis rescue” and being able to ATTACK people over the Internet (where they are “safe”) that they DON’T even know.
And since no one in the public that attacked the animal owners bothers to check up on the animals after the so-called “rescue” has them, the ones that are killed or disappeared to “wherever” are NOT given a second thought and its like they never existed at all.
On the off-chance someone asks a few little questions, the “rescue” ALWAYS has a sob-story waiting in the wings to roll out of “why” they “had” to kill an animal they “rescued” but they NEVER show vet reports and euthanasia reports for ALL of the animals they “rescued” in a seizure and/or other type of “crisis rescue” – WHAT’S UP WITH THAT?
The Red Cross is even now being forced to show their financials and other pertinent information regarding their “rescue efforts” in Haiti:
It is long PAST DUE to hold primarily or wholly donation-funded animal rescues to account for A LOT of things, and there are questions contained in the questionnaire below at the link and also displayed that HONEST (not 1 donation-funded animal rescue has thus far filled out and returned the questionnaire to the sender, so its looking grim regarding honesty, accountability, and transparency in donation-funded animal rescue) donation-funded rescues WILL answer any and all questions regarding their financials, photos and vet reports on all animals “rescued” using donated funds, WHERE do ALL of the rescued animals END UP, display photos of WHERE they all ended up (and all of these rescues have very stringent adoption contracts and agreements and also contracts for foster homes too), are the animals dead or alive, if dead, how did their lives end, etc.
And with MANY of these “retail rescues” charging vastly INFLATED impound fee’s, MANY of the owners of animals that were seized that are not charged with ANYTHING and/or are only charged with a misdemeanor (so they DA can ACT like they’re “doing something” when NOTHING NEEDED to be done) CANNOT afford to get their animals used as pawns by so-called “rescues” out-of-hock, so they never get their animals back again.
A case in point is with the Joshua Rockwood case after he had horses and a pony unjustly seized by a “rescue”:
These shenanigans are exactly why its called “THE RESCUE RACKET”, because for MANY publicly-donation-funded “rescues” that have NO OVERSIGHT, it IS a money-making racket – THIS NEEDS TO STOP before more lives are ruined and/or lost.
People that don’t even know the animal owner, the “rescue”, or the animals, act like uncivilized heathens on a witch hunt.
However, as more people that have been victims of these attacks file civil lawsuits and smack the attackers in their wallets for defaming them, harassing them, stalking them, and threatening them without cause, hopefully these attacks, and people behaving like ignorant, uneducated idiots, will finally stop, and the real rescues will emerge that actually HELP animal owners (if they in fact need “help”) and their animals, they will fill out the questionnaire posted at the end of this blog with ALL of their information and will return it to the sender, and also will answer simple questions that “retail rescues” WON’T.
This would be a welcome and refreshing change from the current climate and agenda of “rescues” literally stealing peoples animals with the help of government agencies, that are USUALLY CLUELESS regarding the “rescues” credentials, and the ramping-up of “social media madness mobs” running amok.
And when “the swarm” and initial attack is over, the MOB then return to their trite little lives after they’ve ruined someone else’s and helped a “rescue” collect thousands of dollars in FREE money donations they don’t have to account for, NOR do they have to account for WHERE ALL of the so-called “rescued animals” end up after they are supposed to be “rescued”.
Too bad for the “rescued” animals that most peoples attention-spans DO NOT last long enough to follow-up for several months, or a few years AFTER the so-called “rescue” regarding WHAT the “rescue” did with ALL of the animals they seized/stole from their owners to make sure ALL of the animals really were rescued and this wasn’t simply the theft of someone’s horses, they attained thousands of dollars in free money donations that were begged for and were collected, horses the rescue got for free were SOLD (calling it adoption) and the problem horses with issues were killed or disappeared because no one wants to deal with taking care of useless horses, or other species of animals for that matter, for months or YEARS that can’t or won’t “DO” anything for people.
Below is the questionnaire for donation-funded rescues that participate in seizures, and that also organize “crisis rescues”, that are real money-makers in terms of bringing in thousands of dollars in free donation-money, they don’t have to account for, from the animal loving public that happen to be gullible and naïve regarding asking questions of rescues.
Please, if you really care about all animals and where they end up, you owe it to the animals supposedly being “rescued” to make sure they really are being rescued and are not simply and callously being used as PAWNS in the very NASTY “retail rescue” arena that is very competitive.
Its evident that when people that are suspicious of activities at an animal control/animal shelter go forward with a FOIA request, some truly heartless acts are being uncovered and EXPOSED as what was reported on at this link:
Because animal controls and animal shelters are tax-payer funded government agencies, FOIA requests can be submitted, and even if the “powers that be” are dragging-their-feet on sending the requested documents and are giving those requesting the information the typical run-around, diversion tactics and evasiveness that goes hand-in-glove with people that are doing things wrong, the information is finally forthcoming.
Unfortunately, this is NOT TRUE for the publicly donation-funded animal rescues, that are not at this point held to comply with FOIA requests, and they disrespectfully:
1. ignore requests for information on
2. how many animals they have at their facility
3. how many are in foster care
4. how many are at sanctuaries for “animals with issues”
5. and also where are all of these facilities where the animals that donation-money “rescued” located?
In other words, THE PUBLIC is USEFUL to squeeze money out of with the “rescues” sob stories of “animals NEED rescuing NOW, and only YOU can help us do our good work” (which basically means they’re running low on money for taking care of animals since MANY of these grifters don’t have jobs – they LIVE OFF donation-money -, and they also need money to buy their personal items that have nothing to do with animal rescue in the least – one woman even bought herself a nose job, and another one that was finally caught and prosecuted by the Attorney General’s office was vacationing all over the world while leaving her “rescue” in the “care” of her volunteer-“slaves”!), but when it comes to answering questions posed by THE PUBLIC, forget-about-it because they are “dissed” by the “rescues” all the time.
MOST of these publicly donation-funded-in-order-to-even-be-able-to-operate animal “rescues” also completely IGNORE and/or become combative and aggressive when anyone asks, and KEEPS ASKING, the pertinent questions of will they please:
1. publicly post all of the veterinarian reports and bills for every animal evaluated and/or treated by their veterinarian
2. publicly post all of the euthanasia reports and bills for every animal that is euthanized for whatever reasons
3. publicly post photos of all of the animals they have rescued using donated funds:
a. at the time and place they are rescued from
b. when they arrive at the rescue or foster facility
c. 1 week after rescue
d. 2 weeks after rescue
e. 1 month after “rescue”
f. 3 months after “rescue”
g. 6 months after “rescue”
h. 1 year after “rescue
I. up to 2 years after “rescue”
“The public” has come to expect the wholesale killing of animals to happen at facilities like animal controls and shelters because they attract people to work at them that are able to “disassociate” themselves from killing innocent animals
They are also “habituated” to killing animals, even the animals that don’t have issues, and many fall back on the worn-out dialogue of “I was just doing as I was told” – blah, blah, blah say the passive ones that don’t possess any courage, compassion, or a conscience and that’s why they continue to “do their job” behaving as if there were no other jobs available on the whole planet they can do that doesn’t include killing animals..
However, many of the kind-hearted, animal-loving folks in the donating public would be shocked, saddened, outraged, and have feelings of guilt that they supported a donation-funded “rescue” that actually KILLS and “disappears” animals on a regular basis that are supposed to be “rescuing”, even though those supposedly “rescued” animals don’t wish to be DEAD.
Convenience killing at animal shelters occurs all the time.
But for some/many(?) donation-funded animal rescues that currently do not have to account for the whereabouts and condition of “rescued animals” that were “rescued” using donated-funds, and they also do not have to account for where and on what that free money is spent, they are literally getting away with the murder of animals they had assured the supportive, donating public they are “saving”.
If people would simply take some time out of their busy lives and schedules, ask questions and expect answers BEFORE they support or donate to a primarily, or wholly, donation-funded animal rescue that can only operate because they get in free money donations (and has this ever caused donation-funded “rescues” to get VERY competitive with one another, to the extent they regularly attack, smear, and trash one another by name in public and in social and mainstream media in order to receive the most money from donors), and also decide the lives of “rescued animals” are worth spending some time investigating what happens to them “after the rescue”, far fewer animals would be KILLED or “disappeared” at the hands of their “rescuers”, the animal dealers and traders posing as animal rescues and rescuers would go away and find other money-making opportunities, and the honest, compassionate “real rescues” could emerge with no fear of being attacked by the liars and nasty ones that operate “retail rescues”..
The “retail rescues” despise the real rescues that are completely willing to answer questions from the supportive, donating public because when the manipulators in retail rescue won’t answer any and all questions posed to them, and when their stories keep changing depending on which way the wind is blowing that day(?!?) or other nonsensical and preposterous “reasons”, that evasiveness and LYING makes them look like the scam-artists they are.
There are ways to trap those who are doing wrong and killing animals and lying about it at animal controls and animal shelters by filing FOIA requests.
However, unless and until “the kind-hearted animal-loving public” ASKS QUESTIONS and EXPECTS ANSWERS, MANY animals will continue to DIE at the hands of fake rescuers, that are OFTEN narcissists that crave the praise and of course the money too, and emotional manipulators (please read this previous blog post for more on what “emotional manipulators are: https://4graceandtruth.wordpress.com/2015/07/06/the-emotional-manipulators-in-publicly-donation-funded-animal-retail-rescue/) that were supposed to be “rescuing them” (using money that was donated to them for ONLY that purpose), NO ONE will even remember that those animals ever existed at all.
A heartbreakingly sad TRAGEDY, but one that can be prevented if only people will care enough to ASK QUESTIONS and EXPECT ANSWERS of donation-funded animal rescues operating in record numbers all over the world that have NO OVERSIGHT regarding REPORTING, or even being REQUIRED to answer questions posed to them by the kind-hearted, compassionate, animal loving public, the whereabouts of ALL animals they have “rescued”, and also if they are in fact alive after being “rescued” or are they DEAD AFTER they were supposed to be “rescued”?
Below is a questionnaire for donation-funded animal rescues to give people ideas for pertinent questions to ask.
