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.
Are most people in the SUPPORTIVE DONATING PUBLIC REALLY “O.K.” with donation-funded “rescues” KILLING INNOCENT ANIMALS AFTER THEY’VE “RESCUED THEM” WITH THE PUBLICS HELP and DONATION-MONEY?
NO, they aren’t!
Some/many donation-funded rescues have a HIGH KILL RATE, but no one knows JUST HOW MANY INNOCENT ANIMALS, that are supposed to be “rescued”, that they KILL USING THE PUBLICS DONATION-MONEY because they won’t HONESTLY and CONCISELY ANSWER QUESTIONS FROM THE PUBLIC THAT SENDS THEM MONEY, BE TRANSPARENT and PUBLICLY POST EXACTLY HOW MANY ANIMALS THEY’RE KILLING.
WHY IS THAT?
BECAUSE THEY KNOW THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THEY REAP FROM THE PUBLIC IN DONATIONS WOULD DROP RADICALLY IF PEOPLE KNEW HOW BLOODTHIRSTY AND GREEDY SOME OF THESE “RESCUES” REALLY ARE, THAT’S WHY!
Its disheartening, disgusting, and despicable that trusting, innocent animals that should be SAFE at a “rescue” are instead KILLED or “disappeared” because the “rescue” doesn’t want to care for and maintain animals that they can’t bring any more donations in on and/or that they can’t sell.
Where do all those designated fundraiser donations go that were sent to the rescue for specific and designated purposes (not for people buy personal items, paying personal bills, having cosmetic surgery, taking vacations, etc)?
Who the heck knows because without OVERSIGHT that requires that predominately or wholly donation-funded animal rescues SHOW the PUBLIC their financials, the rescues that will publicly post things they shouldn’t have a problem with being accountable to the public on are few and FAR BETWEEN.
The animal loving public has a MORAL OBLIGATION to safeguard animals AFTER a donation-funded rescue seizes them, buys them, finds them, or acquires them in some fashion USING THE TAXPAYING and/or THE DONATING PUBLICS MONEY.
The PRIMARY WAY at the GRASSROOTS LEVEL to FORCE OVERSIGHT on donation-funded animal rescues is for the PUBLIC to perform OVERSIGHT themselves, ASK these “rescues” QUESTIONS and EXPECT ANSWERS.
NO ANSWERS and/or EVASIVE DOUBLE-TALK ANSWERS from the DONATION-FUNDED “RESCUE” EQUALS
NO DONATIONS FROM THE PUBLIC
THEIR DAYS OF ANIMAL TRAFFICKING WILL BE OVER
DO NOT COLLECT MONEY and PASS “GO”!
Additionally, the PUBLIC should SHARE this INFORMATION with their FAMILY, THEIR FRIENDS, and with OTHER PEOPLE in the PUBLIC in order to make the “rescues” that are USING the PUBLICS MONEY to OPERATE and KILL INNOCENT ANIMALS GO “OUT OF BUSINESS” so they can’t KEEP KILLING ANIMALS WITH IMPUNITY.
As strange as this may sound, MANY of the legitimate donation-funded rescues that:
~ don’t rip-off the public
~ that don’t LIE and MANIPULATE
~ that don’t kill innocent animals all the time
~ that don’t “disappear” animals into the black void of nothingness
~that often HAVE primary participants that work fulltime jobs to support their rescue-efforts
are AFRAID of the players that run RETAIL RESCUES!
YES, THEY ARE!
The current-day animal-rescue-arena is COMPETITIVE EVEN THOUGH IT SHOULDN’T BE!
and with MONEY, PUBLICITY, a “FOLLOWING” and other “goodies” as the PRIZES, things get UGLY, UNETHICAL,
and even downright FRIGHTENING really fast.
WHAT ARE THE ETHICAL RESCUES AFRAID OF?
Lets see, they’re afraid of:
1. being attacked in regard to the chronically and/or acutely ill, the terminally ill, or the old animals they rescue and take care of that might not look so swell or healthy but they don’t kill them just because the animal can’t be “USED” for anything.
2. they’re afraid of being trashed, the victim of a smear campaign, stalked, harassed, threatened.
3. they’re afraid of having “false reports”, which are ILLEGAL but it happens anyway, sent in anonymously, or often not anonymously, to tax-payer-funded government entities that usually have to respond to complaints that are filed.
Note: with legislation in the works to hold people that “false report” accountable through fines and/or prosecution for illegally using government entities to go after other people, this activity may fall by the wayside to a great extent SOON because these people USING TAX-PAYER FUNDED AGENCIES to further their own nasty agenda, (and they often KNOW there is nothing wrong regarding whatever they are “reporting” on), is OUT OF CONTROL!
3. they’re afraid because they’ve seen these “retail rescues” in action RAMPING-UP MOBS of people on social media (that they manipulate and LIE to) to swarm and attack animal owners, other rescues, anyone that has animals basically, and these clueless wonders in the MINDLESS MOB “reaches-out” based on lies to anyone and everyone they can think of including local and regional government, state government, the FBI, the large ANIMAL RIGHTS orgs that embellish and lie a lot themselves in order to pull in donations and get publicity, etc, etc, etc.
5. and they’re VERY AFRAID because it is NOT cheap and easy for hard-working people that support a rescue with their OWN MONEY primarily to hire an attorney to defend them and/or file a civil lawsuit. – if they are swarmed and attacked, it could, and very well might, be life-destroying.
These “RETAIL RESCUES” KNOW this is the case and they are NOT WORRIED (although, they should be because MORE PEOPLE are fighting back, and government agencies are getting wise to them and/or are being sued because of them) that no matter how much they manipulate and “work” the clueless in the public, no matter how many animals they KILL, no matter “WHAT”, other rescues near and far “keep their heads down” and don’t say word-one about the unethical, immoral, and often illegal activities they do CONSTANTLY.
Its up to the PUBLIC to JOIN in the GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT of “ASK QUESTIONS and EXPECT ANSWERS” from donation-funded animal rescues!
Now if you don’t want to read this whole blog post, but DO WANT TO JOIN THE “ASK QUESTIONS and EXPECT ANSWERS” MOVEMENT to HELP INNOCENT TRUSTING ANIMALS, please scroll to the end of this post for some great ideas of QUESTIONS to ASK AND EXPECT ANSWERS to YOUR QUESTIONS from DONATION-FUNDED ANIMAL RESCUES that very well could be animal traders and dealers posing as “rescues” that are low-down “RETAIL RESCUES” running their BUSINESS at the expense of trusting people and innocent animals.
These predominately, or wholly donation-funded “rescues” ask for money from the public to “rescue” animals, then ask for and receive more money from the public AFTER the “rescue” in order to care for and maintain them (or so they say) because they don’t have money of their own with which to operate.
BUT THEN they “sort” the animals, keep the ones they will, or “might” be able to sell, and KILL the ones that aren’t USEFUL to anyone and in their morally bankrupt minds, are nothing more than “MONEY-PITS”.
That sounds just like what an animal control, or a kill buyer at a feedlot for horses DOES !
In other words, THIS BEHAVIOR is NOT WHAT A REAL RESCUE WOULD EVER DO!
CON-ARTISTS that have INFILTRATED ANIMAL RESCUE and are known as “RETAIL RESCUES” ALWAYS KNOW HOW TO “WORK THE SYSTEM” and THE PUBLIC and relatively little OVERSIGHT by government agencies makes their SCAMS against the PUBLIC even easier to perpetrate!
Because of the LACK OF OVERSIGHT, the public MUST, MUST, MUST scrutinize the donation-funded rescues in order to expose their greed and treating animals like “merchandise” because of the FACT that MANY of the predominately, or wholly, donation-funded “rescues” ARE MORAL FAILURES as evidenced by the stories at the links on today’s blog post.
The OTHER QUESTION that is like the “elephant in the room” is “oh my”, what’s a donation-funded animal “rescue” that is adoption-based supposed to do with the many animals they seize, buy/receive from “wherever”, acquire, etc using other peoples money when it is found out the animal has physical and/or behavioral/training issues that renders them UNADOPTABLE with, or without a fee, and they also cannot be rehabbed into looking good, being useable for anything, etc (just like human beings as INDIVIDUALS)?
These “rescues” “tell” people “we’re adoption-based” and their True Believer Kool-Aid drinking followers think its just dandy and believe every word they slurp-up that these “rescues” “say” when yet another animal “HAS” to be “put down”.
OR, as is OFTEN the case when people have their heads stuck deep in the sand, everyone just STOPS talking about some of the animals because they really DON’T WANT TO KNOW what happened to them.
That’s why people like this are called “enablers” because without these True Believers that come-and-go constantly through the social media revolving door, these “rescues” would collapse and go under.
The other way to EXPOSE these hustlers is to ASK THEM ALOT OF QUESTIONS and EXPECT ANSWERS.
Too bad, so-NOT-sad for these donation-funded adoption based “rescues” is the fact that once people are educated in “the rescue racket” being run because there is relatively little-to-no OVERSIGHT for these donation-funded rescues that are OFTEN animal traders, dealers, and flippers posing as “rescues”, fewer and fewer people actually believe their asinine nonsense that even a reasonably intelligent 3rd grader could see right through their fictional fantasy stories (according to the “rescue”) of:
* “why” they “had” to kill animals (and the public only ever sees a small number of animals being killed and are not privy to the numerous animals being killed secretly because the “rescue” won’t give even a monthly head-count so interested parties can keep track of innocent animals that are supposed to be “rescued”);
TRANSLATION: they won’t usually show any, (but sometimes “they throw their trusting followers a bone” and show them a token vet report or euthanasia report), vet and euthanasia reports for ALL of the rescued animals they “say” their vet is looking at and “have” to be “put down” because their vet doesn’t want to jeopardize their licensing by writing fabricated reports that wouldn’t pass muster under scrutiny.
*why some of the animals that they seized months earlier for *supposedly* being “starved”, “neglected”, etc aren’t ever seen again and/or are euthanized, “put down”, KILLED;
TRANSLATION: because what happens frequently is that the “rescuers” in their ignorance actually mishandle and/or mismanage animals and they cause accidents, illness, and conditions that lead to their demise OR many of the seized animals don’t improve all but a little bit, if at all, so the accusations of “starving” and “neglect” leveled at animal owners that were their victims of attack on a “seizure scam” obviously WERE NOT TRUE – so in order to HIDE the lack of improvement that wrecks the “rescues” rehab rate and/or shows them as vile liars, they KILL THE ANIMALS that will expose the “rescue” for the nasty people they all are.
*“we sent them to a sanctuary” or “they’re at a foster-home” or “they’re out on a ‘trial adoption”;
TRANSLATION: the locations of all of these types of places remains a mystery that never gets solved because most people are too trusting to follow up on if its true, or NOT, and many of their followers have their heads buried deep in the sand and don’t appear to CARE WHERE the animals are currently;
*”we’re raising funds to buy property for a sanctuary”;
TRANSLATION: for retail rescues this actually means “we’ll be able to take the useless animals to another location away from our public rescue facilities property where we can dispose of the worthless animals without anyone the wiser to just how many we kill, or how many we dump through various outlets”.
*”they’re still at our facility and are doing great”;
TRANSLATION: they may or may not still be at their facility, but they won’t show current photos if the animal is still there but has been there a long time because at some point, these “rescues” “clear the shelves” of “old merchandise” animals to make room for “fresh merchandise”, so they don’t want people to start keeping tabs on those animals which they want people to NOT ask about, and forget about them instead.
They also rarely if ever show the care and maintenance reports and bills that donors are always being asked to pay for because some of these animals they’re fixing to get rid of are nothing more than “money pits” that they don’t want to spend any more of that free donation money on them than they have to.
The story at this link is very sad, but it is the reality for many old, useless, ill, chronic health issue animals; they are KILLED and NOT RESCUED.
Here’s an excerpt from the story at the link above and what the PUBLICS donation-money is PAYING FOR – the MURDER of animals AFTER they are literally STOLEN under color-of-law by “rescues” (makes intelligent people wonder what else they’re STEALING):
“Why would a so-called association for the ‘protection of animals’ kill a healthy dog? What other motives are at work here? There is something very dark and sinister afoot in Moulton and advocates are fearing the worst. “Grandpa was dragged by an ASPCA worker named ‘John’ out the door with rope around his neck.” Grandpa knew something bad was happening and most likely sensed he was doomed. Grandpa was right. ASPCA killed Grandpa.”
The primary reason this crap happens is because there is NO REAL OVERSIGHT to speak of for donation-funded animal rescues.
This pertains to their FINANCIALS on FREE donation-money coming in, what its being used on, where are the receipts and bills, the veterinary reports and euthanasia reports, and WHERE in the HELL are ALL of the animals these so-called “rescues” are rescuing weeks and months AFTER they’ve “rescued” them?
And now that fewer and fewer people are actually trusting and/or dumb enough to believe the silly rhetoric spewing forth from these faux “rescuers” mouths and from their typing fingers with their eloquent, but patently false stories, regarding animals and how they should always look and behave well, there is no excuse for animals NOT looking and behaving good and well, and if they can’t be made to “look good” and/or “behave well”, surely they must die or be “disappeared”.
The problem for the scam-artists at these opportunistic retail rescues is that intelligent people who think about things KNOW that animals get acutely ill, they get chronically diseased, they get old, they sometimes look “iffy”, or even downright bad because they have non-correctable issues.
However, just because they may be unadoptable, or they’ve been hanging around eating for too long, it certainly doesn’t mean they WANT to DIE or be KILLED!
ADDITIONALLY, THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE THAT DONATE THAT WOULDN’T IF THEY KNEW THEIR MONEY WAS CONTRIBUTING TO THE KILLING OF SO MANY ANIMALS!
The “retail rescues” operating all over the world COUNT ON THE FACT that there is relatively little OVERSIGHT for animal rescues, and the public up until recently DON’T ASK QUESTIONS AND EXPECT ANSWERS!
THE PUBLIC IS BEING USED, THE ANIMALS ARE BEING USED, and the only ones benefitting are the animal traders and dealers that POSE AS “RESCUES”!
Animals want to LIVE, they want to be with other compatible animals, they want to enjoy whatever phase of life they’re in.
And when an animal doesn’t want to live any longer, wise animal owners know when it is time to help them pass because the animal tells them its time.
But what do the donation-funded retail rescues that are “into” production-line/repetitive “rescue” do?
They “convenience KILL” or “disappear” animals like this, that’s what!
And to “cover” their abhorrent and despicable killings, they “tell” their trusting followers all kinds of things that can often be shown are lies, and they refuse to publicly SHOW the numbers of animals they have every month, how many are in “foster care”, how many are on “trial adoptions”, how many were adopted, and how many were euthanized/”put down”/killed.
“Rescues” can “tell” the public whatever they want – but the PUBLIC WANTS TO SEE THE INFORMATION WITH THEIR OWN EYES!
Since a lot more people are becoming WISE to their con-game, that is a FACT!
However, these hustlers in retail rescue are doing the mad shuffle trying to figure out new ways to kill or “disappear” animals that the now-more-alert public is becoming educated in the ploys and manipulations, they are ASKING QUESTIONS and EXPECTING ANSWERS BEFORE they’ll donate.
In other words, the PUBLIC is performing OVERSIGHT free of charge since government agencies aren’t doing it in any meaningful kind of way, and clueless “reporter”-hacks weave fantasy fairy tales about “animal whispers” that anyone that knows the people being written about are guffawing about and thinking it MUST be a joke.
Donation-money and animals are disappearing by the thousands at retail rescues in every civilized country that has them operating within their borders, but this is going to STOP because ASKING QUESTIONS and EXPECTING ANSWERS will EXPOSE these “opportunists” EVERY TIME!
A good guide located at the link below speaks to the issue of donation-funded adoption-based animal rescues and how to get a “read” on the ethical ones, and the “not so much” ones.
They are addressing donation-funded adoption-based and not sanctuaries/hospices that often don’t deal in the adoptions of animals and are not adoption-based except for infrequently:
Below is the questionnaire that can be sent to any donation-funded retail rescue.
Or the public can ask questions and expect answers.
And if they don’t get answers to ALL of their questions, its quite simple what the course of action, or inaction should be: Don’t support them, and don’t waste your money donating to them because they don’t deserve your time nor your money when they disrespectfully won’t concisely answer all of the questions posed to them.
