Zoo Wars-Focus on Sanctuary SCAMMER Turpentine Creek Wildlife Rescue

•October 26, 2016 • Leave a Comment


This will be a focus on Serenity Springs Wildlife Center owners-Julie Walker and Nick Sculac v Turpentine Creek Wildlife Rescue (TCWR) Tonya Smith-ceo/owner.



It was NOT a rescue as implied by Tonya Smith -ceo for TCWR but instead a ‘contract for deed’ where Smith made a down payment for the property and committed to make future payments-She is NOT the owner until she satisfies the contract.


And this is not the only evidence of TCWR notification but there is also a personal note from Smith (TCWR) to Walker (Serenity Springs)


Both Have IRS Not for Profit status allowing them to operate Tax free but entitles them to nothing else-and does NOT allow for SCAMS!!! Otherwise, it’s business as usual.

Both are licensed and permitted by USDA/APHIS a government agency required to exhibit animals-Neither of these companies are closed to the public with both allowing visitors for exhibition purposes just as ALL animal enterprise facilities.

But Smith did not keep her promise and commitment with Julie and Nick-Their peace of mind destroyed when Smith began calling it a rescue although she became the sole care-giver but NOT owner of the property as Smith only made a down payment and therefore did not become an owner of anything and assumed that she would honor the only commitment that she did make with the ‘contract for deed’ to BECOME the future owner.

Now who put the idea in her head that she could have her vets from LA to preform surgeries and assess the animals in CO…move the animals and the equipment off the property…Stupid is as stupid does and likely believed because she did it before could do it again and again and again…including having the public supply funds for this illegal operation!



On viewing the announcement was question about WHAT RESCUE? Here’s Smith’s reply:


What a shock seeing their facility and animals being called a rescue (4 tigers going to the scummiest facility in the country-my opinion and the opinion of others) when it was no such thing! Smith’s SCAM grows so another NFP will get involved and cost her nothing as she decided to remove property either to TCWR or other facilities including BCR who also made a fundraiser out of it. Now we have 3+ SCAMS from facilities calling themselves rescue operations…Just how far and widespread this has grown is yet to be determined…


Big Cat Rescue 2015 IRS 990 tax filing-MILLIONS-follow the money before donating http://www.bcrwatch.com/big-cat-rescue-990.html

Buying a facility and now calling it a rescue is no simple matter -TCWR decides to increase it’s fundraising while STRIPPING the property, also demonstrates the out of state vet from AR illegally preforming surgery on a tiger in CO utilizing the veterinary hospital on Serenity Springs property


Here’s an accounting of what was witnessed and prepared to testify should it come to that but Nick and Julie have already been contacted by TCWR lawyer so I would assume things have escalated and please remember, Nick is fighting for his life and not needing the stress that has developed-My heart goes out to him…

From our keepers before they were fired!

“Hey Nick and Julie, this is Eastin and Hollie. We worked for y’all before turpentine took over, I just had a few questions to ask you in regards to the contract between you and turpentine. Since they have taken over, they guaranteed us all a place here taking care of the animals and told us they were working on our paper work, so we continued working for them without knowing they were not going to pay us.

They have cut the eyes out of the two blind cats by Huggy and said their reasoning was “if we don’t take their eyes they will die in a month”, they are also stripping down the photo trailer and putting the rolling cages into it to transport and rehome (sell) Mona, ALL of the Bears including Huggy, all of the mountain lions and Cougars and they are also separating all of the yearlings from each other and sending them to separate “zoos”.

If that were not enough for us to have to deal with, yesterday will, tori, joe, Eastin and myself asked to sit down with them privately to discuss why we haven’t been paid, and also why they allowed us to work minimum of 73 hours on park without them giving us our paperwork, especially since tori and I over heard two different comments from their “head” board member that 1. ” we don’t know what the fuck were doing” and 2. “We just need to keep their backs and keep them distracted for another week until the rest of our crew gets here” when we brought this to their attention they promised to compensate us for the work we did for you (not them) and told us to give them some time to figure out the funds, and then they called us back one by one and fired us all and told us to get off the property within the next 5 hours.

I also feel I should inform you on a personal conversation Tanya had with me (Hollie) about how horrible of shape the park is in and how she can’t believe you could treat the animals this way for so long, she also had “Lisa” record Peyton and black fire saying the condition they are in is horrific and they were not taken care of by the previous owner so they need donations to “fix them.”

So my question to you is, is there ANY type of loophole we could use to get them away from this park so Eastins dad can buy into it. Oh, also they allowed Shakira to keep her cubs and this morning she killed and ate one of them.”


That is a letter received by Julie and Nick alerting them that there is a serious problem brewing and an accounting of the tigers surgery and the death of a cub not removed from it’s mother as advised by Julie, Nick and the CO vet of record.


They would rather a tiger cub be killed by it’s mother -GFAS & TCWR
But this is abuse?

[bloggers note: TCWR recently announced the completion of their veterinary hospital in Arkansas-blogger suspects that property was removed from Serenity Springs and taken to TCWR]

In the news: http://fox21news.com/2016/10/24/arkansas-based-big-cat-sanctuary-takes-over-serenity-springs-but-not-without-controversy/

Arkansas-based big cat sanctuary takes over Serenity Springs, but not without controversy

As previously posted:
“I can hardly believe that a facility buys another facility and calls it a rescue. Considering the claim of rescue began after providing Serenity Springs with a down payment for the property, signing a contract and took ownership of the animals although the proper paperwork to transfer ownership had not been completed. Tonya Smith assumed ownership and subjected the animals to acts of deliberate animal abuse and cruelty of her newly owned animals. [Bloggers note: Smith assumed beyond her ‘contract for deed’ and assumed ownership. Instead she became care giver and required owners permission for surgeries or to remove any animals from the property, including but not limited to the animals but ALL property-You don’t buy a car, remove the engine and the leave the bank holding the bag for a car with no engine-duh] I assume she is referring to rescuing her own animals in her posts where she slandered the previous owner but now screaming about the animals that she agreed to provide continued care for yet it was her inexperienced vet who cut the eyes of 2 aging tigers
*Accounting was witnessed and posted below.

“After being diagnosed with cancer, Nick Sculac, made the heartbreaking decision to sell the facility in order to give the cats a forever home in the case of his death should he die from his fight with cancer. Nick has dedicated his life to these animals and wanted nothing but the best for them. He promised to give them a home to live out their lives and in selling the facility he had hoped that his promise would live on.”

“Shortly after signing over the facility his promise and dreams for the cats was destroyed. Now he is fighting to keep his promise to those animals and needs all the help he can get in this fight. He is up against legal fees to do so and outstanding veterinarian bills.”

TCWR is a MEMEBER of GFAS-It is assumed that 50+ animals…according to the news accounting…were removed and taken to other GFAS to profit from their SCAMS. So far only and several GFAS sanctuaries have received STOLEN property. What TCWR is doing is referred to as stripping the property and the courts frown in this type of theft…They managed to get a restraining order on the owners of the property however what Smith forgets is that 1) Smith has a history of property theft 2) all the animals and other property is documented and photographed…She will have an option of paying in full or held in breach and guess she bought an awful lot of animals to give away to all her GFAS friends 3) Not all the animals at Serenity Springs belonged to Serenity Springs and in fact on breeding loan from independent presidential candidate Joe Maldonado.



This is only part 1 of what this blogger has learned-More will be forthcoming as investigations and supply of evidence comes in to inform the pubic that they are being SCAMMED by GFAS facilities and who knows how many others are involved-Too bad there is already a SCAM called Fast and Furious…cause now learning some of GW Interactive Exotic Zoo animals are also involved…another cancer victim.

All posts on TCWR were screen saved as this investigative accounting of GFAS facility SCAMs to bilk the public for funding-We have been collecting where those animals are now and the SCAMS produced and NOT limited to those mentioned in this post-Far beyond any corruption previous mentioned in this blog!

Maybe our FBI agent will be interested in this-I do believe I will forward this to him…GFAS is HSUS!!!

UPDATE/ALERT-Zoo Wars-The Biggest Sanctuary SCAMMERS in History (part 2)

•October 23, 2016 • 11 Comments

Non-Profit Fraud21

Since my last post exposing the fraudulent sanctuary SCAMS-‘Zoo Wars-The Biggest Sanctuary SCAMMERS in History” (link provided below), I have received comments that I wouldn’t publish and threats calling me a liar (see the comments at the link below) however, everything posted on this blog is based on my opinion and the opinions of others.  I promised that I will be posting their actual SCAMs under the ‘color of rescue’ and to update…This is an extension of the post and an update to the previous post.

Fake claims of exotic animal rescues are generated by sanctuaries for emotionally generated support and funds. They have manipulated emotionally generated laws in this country in numerous states so that private exotic animal ownership will be banned or with near impossible conditions to create unlawful and un-constitutional laws against your God-given rights and your Civil Liberties granted to you by state and the US Constitutions. Carole Baskin, ceo-Big Cat Rescue (BCR) has been engaged for a number of years to have federal laws change using money donated for animal care to lobby and advertise the bills under the ‘guise of a public safety issue’ however the Big Cat Safety Act is a misnomer and has nothing to do with public safety issues. There is currently another attempt to change USDA/APHIS regulations that would essentially do the same thing although outside it’s duty for Animal Welfare as no animal or human is endangered by allowing the general public to come in contact with young animals which is already regulated that it must be done in a safe manner for both the animals safety and the safety of the general public; the current regulations have proven itself sufficient.

Most sanctuaries were created for the general public to support their private exotic animal ownership collections/hoarding thru donations rather than going to work to support their animals and the needs of their facility that they claim is for the care of rescued animals (animals they receive for FREE). Several examples are Big Cat Rescue (BCR)-Carole Baskin-ceo, Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue (WBCR)-convicted felon, Jeff Kozlowski-ceo living off the proceeds obtained thru donations, In-Sync Wildlife Rescue, Lions, Tigers and Bears-Bobbi Brinks-ceo, Black Beauty Ranch associated directly with HSUS/GFAS, Forever Wild- Joel and Chemain Almquist-ceos, The Wild Animal Sanctuary-Pat Craig, ceo, Black Pines-Laurie Gagens-ceo and of course, Turpentine Creek Wildlife (TCW)-Tonya Smith-ceo, just to name a few of the massive number of sanctuaries in this country claiming to have rescued animals.

These very same sanctuaries (and others) who will paint horrible descriptions of private exotic animal owners although most private owners offer better conditions than these sanctuaries. All sanctuaries claim to be providing a superior life for the animals. All but three of the above named sanctuaries are in association with HSUS/GFAS. All pleas for donations for one reason or another and using their ‘so-called-rescues’ to paint horrible pictures of OTHER exotic animal owners. ALL exotic animal owners are considered private owners no matter who owns them; including these sanctuaries as well as all zoos.

ALL of the sanctuaries named above and numerous others, are considered a BUSINESS; licensed as any exhibitor by the USDA/APHIS for the purpose of collecting a fee to be open to the public; just as they and any roadside zoo are required to meet the same conditions as ALL zoos including AZA and AAZ zoos.

Most sanctuaries (including those named) are keeping animals in sub-standard conditions and getting a free pass from the licensing regulations of the their USDA/APHIS permit although not revealed in the USDA/APHIS inspection, compliance reports; giving reason to question the integrity of the inspectors and the especially the licensing government agency. ALL the named sanctuaries have been previously mentioned in this blog for one reason or another making them and others the subject of the topic of the Biggest Sanctuary SCAMMERS in History updates. 

Link of interest: https://topcatsroar.wordpress.com/2016/10/19/zoo-wars-biggest-sanctuary-scammers-of-all-time/#comment-9171

ALL the sanctuaries named and those un-named are considered ‘professional beggars’ with pleas for donations ‘under the guise of rescue’ and rather than tell the truth about the animals and/or their previous owners, perpetrate lies to SCAM the general public for donations. Most have plenty of money in reserve yet continue to SCAM the public for more funding. Please note: Big Cat Rescue has over 4 Million dollars in reserve-Carole Baskin and all family member receive above average salaries; receive free food and vet care for the animals. Carole Baskin’s daughter, Jamie, is the manager of the facility and her husband is the vet of record-How convenient…

Just because a business has obtained an IRS Not-for-Profit (NFP) status which means they are NOT paying any tax does not make them any different than a business that is not NFP and who are willing to pay tax. Some (likely ALL) NFP sanctuaries are neglecting to pay state sales tax on fees collected to enter their facilities and/or items they sell in their gift shops and Internet sales and therefore contributing no funds to their home states.


The ethics of some of the above named sanctuaries have some of the most sickening pleas for donations which came from Pat Craig stating he will put down all the animals at his facility if he does not receive more donations. Carole Baskin has the highest death rate of any of the facilities with several dying the last couple of months leaving cages empty and lusting for more rescued animals to fill the space.

Running short on time; not all the above facilities ethics will be contained in this post but will be in future posts along with some the other un-named facilities. Anything new from the facilities mentioned will also be updated to fully expose the SCAMS perpetrated on the general public.

To find a list of GFAS associates go here: http://www.sanctuaryfederation.org/gfas/about-gfas/gfas-sanctuaries/#usa

Sanctuaries lack ETHICS in what they say and do for the purpose of collecting animals for their facility for the soul purpose of obtaining donations. Animals being necessary to promote their facility. Let’s take a closer look:

Forever Wild refuses to return 3 monkeys taken from a disable woman who needed her monkeys as service animals and companionship and the legal and rightful owner of the monkeys. Joel Almquest attacked her with pepper spray in her face  during a squabble about the animals.

She not only was arrested but ended up with a broken arm from the incident over her concern for how her animals were being cared for. Of course she was arrested as the Almquist’s are associated with local law enforcement officers in the area even though her never laid a hand on her attacker.

By law, ADA law in this instance, for persons with disabilities, are not required to obtain a permit for small primates used as service animals and/or companions although the reason law enforcement officers of the state seized her animals.

Of course Almquist was delighted to receive these monkeys; FREE of charge, of course and placed them in a sub-standard cage (information that was provided to me and it’s been a number of years since I was at this facility. No pictures have ever been provided to debunk the claim) the seized animas are on display.

There is a case still pending against the state of California although it has been well over a year since the animals were seized. Joel Almquist does not have a required license to have the monkeys nor the required knowledge and education to be permitted by the state of CA, yet was allowed and continues to house those monkeys at his facility. This is rather hypocritical for California Wildlife Enforcement to not admit their error and has never ordered the return of these animals to their owner. Almquist stated that he would rather kill the animals than to return them to their owner.

Forever Wild is a sanctuary in California who was a private exotic animal collector/owner before deciding to obtain NFP status to have his collection supported by the general public.


Black Pine Sanctuary-Laurie Gagen, ceo is another NFP sanctuary who happily excepted a coadimundi and a monkey earlier this year that were seized due to an extenuating circumstance and seized by animal control in Michigan.

There was never a hearing concerning ownership of the animals seized. Michigan cruelty law is set up so that if an animal owner is accused, then he is considered guilty, no matter the type of animal. The judge in this particular case stated that he did not believe the legal and rightful owners had been intentionally cruel to the animals.

The animal control officer placed ownership of the animals at various facilities including taking the fresh water fish from there tank to a retail pet store that sells fish. Even the pet shop slandered the conditions for which the were taken although he never saw the animals until they were delivered to his shop to know the conditions from which the fish (FISH!!!) were taken or the removal of the fish from the tank that they were in.

An animal control officer, by sate and US Constitution, is not allowed to seize and freely give away private property and must be a decision in a civil court of law. Laurie Gagen produces a FB page for Black Pine and proceeded to slander the owners of the animals to justify becoming their new owner and to collect donations.

This is a case of civil asset forfeiture that never went to a proper court of law to determine ownership. US citizens are protected from civil liberty abuse however not in Michigan and certainly not respected by Laurie Gagen of Black Pines who happily accepted these very valuable animals for FREE and were taken out of Michigan across state lines to Indiana.

The sugar gliders were given to a sugar glider breeder and the wallabies including albino were given to Brookline Zoo. An inexperienced zoo vet at Brookline disputed the owners experienced private exotic vet obtained by the owner. The owners of the animals were forced to plea guilty and put on probation yet guilty of no crime beyond being the owners of the animals.


Carole Baskin owner and ceo of Big Cat Rescue (BCR) is maybe the most hated private owner in the United States. She, the facility, as well as the situation concerning Baskin’s missing husband who was declared dead although no body has ever been produced; doesn’t seem to know the truth from the lies she has perpetuated on the public on just about anything related to the facility, animals, and regulations.

People magazine referred to her as a ‘Black Widow’ inheriting a small fortune, home and the facility and the animal where she and her husband, Don Lewis, had been collecting a large collection of animals, breeding and selling or hoarding animals, and buying and selling animals. Carole Baskin’s personal goal was to have the largest collection of all species of exotic cats was changed to control all exotic cat ownership. with the creation of illegal and unconstitutional laws; Carole Baskin had a 20 year plan.

Baskin has the market covered from events to collect donations to the lies she tells to collect funds. I can only imagine Baskin collecting money from the tills, riding her bike up to her home where she sits counting and playing with the money she collects.

Tiger scam

This blog has discussed Carole Baskin and Big Cat Rescue extensively. Presidential Candidate, Joe Exotic, is at odds with Carole Baskin. 911animalabuse.org exposes Carole Baskin. A rather new on the scene blogger dedicated to exposing Carole Baskin is BCR Watch which is a website and FB group. For more information on BCR go to those sites and/or search the archives of this blog.

bcr-gets-serenity-springs-tigersNever ending story -BCR with an excess of 4 MILLION dollars in reserve claims to be in need of your donations.

from BCR Watch:

“It turns out that Big Cat Rescue will be getting four tigers from Serenity Springs Wildlife Center. https://bigcatrescue.org/oct-18-2016/

Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge purchased Serenity Springs making them the new owners and in charge of the facility. So could it be said that Big Cat Rescue will be “rescuing” the tigers from the owners of Turpentine Creek?”

Blogger’s note: Let the cat fight begin over the claim of who is rescuing the Serenity Springs tigers now owned by TCW therefore, BCR is rescuing TCW cats because they are no longer owned by Nick Sculac due to the sale of Serenity Springs and TCW is now the new owner.

TCW vs BCR over the claim of ‘rescue’ Ding-Ding-Ding I can hardly wait to see them scraping it out on their FB walls and already I imagine Smith is fuming over that shot for donations as the new owner of Serenity Springs.

See link of Interest (above) for more on the closing of Serenity Springs and what has become of the animals as the Internet has blown up with all sorts of stories…Created by Tonya Smith of TCW.


Relatively new to me amongst exotic animal rescue scene is Tigers, Lions and Bears-Bobbi Brinks-ceo who is in collusion with the Governor John Kasich and the Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA). Thousands of taxpayer dollars have been wasted paying Bobbi Brinks for transporting animals out of Ohio following animal seizure by armed robbers of the state or forcing private owners to surrender their animals due to the creation of new regulations promoted by the governor, Jack Hanna, Carole Baskin, Tippi Hedrin and many others all seeking more animals to hoard and use for the collection of donations with millions already in reserve.

from Presidential Candidate Joe Exotic of The Gerald Wayne Interactive Exotic Zoological Park; whose slogan is “Let’s Make America Exotic Again”:

The Nonprofit Animal scams are one of the worst out there, with the 1/4 million dollar contract from Ohio, billing to go pick up animals, driving a 200 thousand dollar rig and they need help paying for a bobcat surgery? Lions Tigers and Bears at it again.
Fucking Crazy how our government lets this continue.
If this was this park raising money we would be accused of not being able to provide adequate care for the animals $$$$$”


Note: Most vets charge a $100 for tooth extraction.


Incidentally, Serenity Springs came complete with it’s own sterile fully equipped veterinary hospital. TCW brought their vets from Louisiana even though not licensed in the state of Colorado, to do veterinary procedures.


All the above sanctuaries and others are known for bilking the general public for donations based on lies and/or a stretch of the truth. Many of these places work along with vegan based Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists (F.A.R.T.) Organizations, HSUS/GFAS/PETA and others, and pay to play to become associates so they appear as an ‘accredited facility’ for pleas for funds found directly on their sites and/or Ads placed on FB, on their social media walls, their websites, and possibly signage at the facilities and flyers that are given out at the facility or at tourist information guides.

Neither HSUS/GFAS/PETA or any other private organization are a government accrediting agency qualified to provide accreditation, frankly, there is no agency qualified to accredit any facility, yet facilities associated with GFAS are exempt from many state laws in several states and all claim to be accredited.

No law can be created requiring a membership with private associations. GFAS has members and verified member associates. No law states ‘verified’ member or ‘accredited associates’. Anyone wishing to join GFAS and meets their bare minimum requirements and willing to pay a rather large fee to join, can become an associate. No facility should be considered exempt from the law, such as the newly created Ohio regulations. This demonstrates violations with state and federal laws in place to prevent corruption and a violation with the Animal Enterprise Terrorist Act (AETA).

Take the poll:

That’s all for this update but more to come to explain and expose instances of UN-ETHICAL practices of FRAUD that exists on the rescue world of exotic animals for money.

ZOO WARS-Biggest Sanctuary SCAMMERS of All Time!!!

•October 19, 2016 • 6 Comments

Biggest Sanctuary Scam in history -Numerous Scammers Stealing property or taking property under false pretense -ALL in the name of Animal Rescue Destroying the lives of longstanding and legal owners as well as the lives of animals-At taxpayer expense and at the expense of money scammed from financial contributions based on false pretense.


These are Homegrown TERRORISTs utilizing their emotionally generated pleas of lies of GIGANTUAN Proportions perpetuated under the guise of rescue for the collection of donations by duping the general public and politicians in this country the likes of which has never been seen before.

Animals are personal property and no one has any right to tell anyone what they can and can not do with private property-The creation of the Animal Welfare Act is nothing new and goes back to it’s creator-Adolph Hitler. People in this country enjoy American Animal Culture with their inherit right to feed themselves and their families as they see fit, own (and sometimes have) the very same type of animal as a pet. We partner with animals for both our enjoyment and the animals enjoyment.

The United States was created as a democracy protecting it’s citizens to God given rights to have domain over animals, State and US Constitutions and Civil Liberty rights for personal protection-ANY law created is to protect PEOPLE -there is nothing giving animals rights or that would insinuate that the government has any right of domain over animal owners or for the Welfare of Animals. Owners have the right to decide what they do for animals and in this country we have some of the finest animal owners, veterinarians and access to products for animal care than any other country. The creation of the Animal Welfare Act just might be the biggest lie and government scam ever to have been created and totally (100%) ILLEGAL  and All at TAXPAYER EXPENSE!!!

Turpentine Creek Wildlife Rescue (TCW) committed fraud perpetrated on a cancer stricken founder of a zoo, Serenity Springs of CO. and PROMISED to keep the facility open. They inspected the facility and the animals before creating a contract and going into agree with a man who is fighting cancer and trying to do the right thing. Instead, the small community zoo has been closed since TCW took over the zoo. Animals are improperly being cared for and the real animals cruelty began.

This is heinous fraud that our society has no business tolerating. Serenity Springs  zoo was sold to TCW under the conditions it would remain open for the community. There was a contract, a down payment and conditions intended for the animals, the zoo, the community and MOST important to the owner of the zoo who is stricken and fighting cancer. Those conditions equivalent to his last will and testament to his community, his beloved animals and most important conditional to his peace of mind that he was doing the very best thing and led to believe that his wishes were understood and would be carried out.

Instead, Turpentine sold off the animals at a profit, conducts an unnecessary surgery in an unsterile environment although there is a sterile animal hospital on site that was used by TCW on other animals, calls it a ‘rescue’ and to top it off begins calling it a rescue to take money from unsuspecting donors. They made a purchase of a zoo with a down payment and iron clad contract -this is NOT a rescue!!! And what they have done to those animals is committed Animal Abuse and inflicted unnecessary pain to the animals of that zoo.  This time the shoe is on the other foot because TCW hadn’t planned on being caught-

How is it that this happens and these so called animal sanctuaries commit  such heinous crimes against animals and get away with it?!? They think themselves so above the law that no one will pay attention with their IRS Not for Profit status-Well we are paying attention and my heart goes out to the previous zoo owners as this story began to grow as the truth surfaced with what is really going on. TCW claimed cubs still with their mother of having a bone density problem -That’s  a made up lie and impossible. From a top zoo veterinarian who stated “This is nothing but scripted animal abuse to make money to line their pockets….anyone with half a brain knows that a mother nursing cubs should be separated from the cubs before any possibility of moving her and her cubs together. TCW has no experience with cubs-They re not breeders. of big cats and therefore not experts with a mother tiger nursing her cubs. Those cubs didn’t have a chance in Hell of surviving the TCW take over as TCW was doing as they pleased and never mind the solid advice of the previous zoo owner or their state and experienced veterinarian. They were never taken from their mom as they had been instructed -The mother tiger could and did spook and then proceeded to eat her cubs-  But it doesn’t end there-not by any means I am sorry to say and the entire story of this outrageous scam is just the beginning-There will be more reported as it is brought to my attention but plenty more I am reporting today including an incomplete list as it is only being developed as I write this, of numerous 0ther sanctuaries are involved throughout the country and once again, crooked Bobbi Brinks name surfaces.

More of the reported Animal Cruelty and abuse of animals but TWC which is so shocking I am placing towards the end of this post and I will continue to write updated reports as the information is flying in from all over the country.

Two older tigers had their eyes cut out by an out of state vet from Louisiana (Inexperience Unlicensed CO vet); cutting out the eyes of tigers with corneal opacities which is not only not a proper procedure for corneal problems and doing so blinded both tigers who were still able to see shadows and get along on their own with proper human assistance-No one seems to know what has become of those tigers. These surgeries did NOT take place at the zoo’s sterile hospital but instead, were knocked down and done in their outdoor enclosures. There is no question that this is intentional animal abuse and the inexperienced vet to be reported for the crime.

The truth be known, allowing Cubs to get eaten instead of saving their lives by taking them from their mother is neglect. Zoo officials stated that the tiger demonstrated that she was agitated and becoming aggressive. TWC was advised and well aware that she would reject them. All three cubs were killed and eaten folks…I hope you think on this for sometime to come and realize that TWC has committed these heinous crimes that led to their demise.

The zoo owners are horrified, the animals now suffering and sadly I have to report that 4 of the tigers will be going (or already arrived at Big Cat Rescue (BCR).


Spirit of the Hills had a recent incident and found it necessary to shoot an escaped tiger-Now under seize…Several of Hetricks animals were at Spirit of the Hills who was hired by Ohio Governor Kasich’s Ohio Department of Agriculture. Hetrick’s animals have been relocated and the public was told animals were starving and that the facility was in poor condition (guess some are receiving payback already for their deeds) yet, all pictures reviewed so far appears animal of normal weight for their size and likely far from the truth. Hetrick’s animals are now in CO at Pat Craig’s Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keensburg, CO, well known to exotic animal owners, whose facility is less than satisfactory and has threaten to slaughter all the animals in his facility on numerous occasions if people didn’t contribute.

Bobbi Brinks has been doing all the transporting, over-paid for her services and taking animals from their rightful legal owners to whom ever she can find who will take them (and/or sell them?)

It is unknown but doubtful that any proper paperwork REQUIRED by the USDA/APHIS/USDI was ever done for the proper transfer of any animals to be transported across interstate lines and ALL of this appears to be in violation of the AETA laws governing owners rights to their animals.

Seems some of Serenity Springs animals are now at In-Sync Exotics in Texas as well. All these sanctuaries are busy slandering the zoo owner suffering with cancer who thought he was doing the right thing. I hope he and his wife sue TWC for breach of contract and the slander used for the purpose of emotionally generated donations to all these sanctuaries: places with MILLIONS in reserve-Before donating ask for a full view of their IRS NFP 990 report or do not donate. There are only a few sanctuaries that exist that are legit but they are out there so unless they produce their 990-Do NOT donate and become part of the SCAM.

“This is Julie from Serenity Springs. Please correct your story.” https://www.facebook.com/insyncexotics/posts/1323924667620417?pnref=story

“First of all Turpentine Creek bought our facility with the intention of another location. We did not have to sell. Yes, Nick was looking for someone to take his place but all animals were cared for and doing well. We had three prominent veterinarians available and animals were under excellent care. I don’t know when you received him but Turpentine Creek was running facility from Sept 18tb. If he wasn’t eating they should have called our vet of record which they never had! In that picture he also has green water which never happened when our keepers were there but they were all fired. I believe they made conditions bad to get more donations. Our facility was beautiful. Yes our cages not a million dollars but they were clean and safe and larger than most. Jamma was over 20yrs old. Kidney failure was not reversible. You don’t have to make it sound like Serenity Sprimgs neglected him as that is not true! Please update your post and don’t help them try to smear a mans reputation who has dedicated his life to saving animals just to raise money.”


There exists a history of these violations by Not for Profit organizations breaking this law for years due to the emotionally generated plea for funds…Most of these places already have money in reserve; BCR is valued at over 4 million dollars and files frivolous law suits against exotic animal owners, slanders every legal and rightful exotic animal owners due to her I want to be a hero psychosis and accumulate millions as she continues to attempt to control all exotic cats in the world -Carole Baskin and her husband Howard remind me of Anamaniac’s ‘Pinky and the Brain’ to rule the world…or is that Bill and Hillary Clinton?!?

Documentation-Marion County inmates sue jail, sheriff

•October 16, 2016 • Leave a Comment


WOW!!! 2 judges recluse themselves from this case and likely have experienced issues from black mold in the building as anyone exposed in that jail could be experiencing respiratory problems from exposure.

Those buildings are old and the jail sealed from allowing in fresh air. The women’s cells are upstairs and in the oldest section of the jail that fail to provide proper heat and A/C and remarkably freezing in the winter as they close off access to heat in the winter and the ventilation system antiquated and inefficient. Inmates are denied their medications and access to medical care frequently. Mind you, I am speaking first hand…This is a known FACT!!! Written of my experience in Marion County, Texas.

People accused of a crime are innocent unless proven guilty…just not Marion County, Texas

The sign in the jail read: “This is what you get for what you did”

Not in America anymore

The Welcome Wagon on arrival to Marion County, Texas will take you off to their jail for a free week in their “Bed and Breakfast” with 3 square meals a day at Tax Payer Expense…following 3 days of warrantless searches and inviting other agencies to participate in a mobbing of your property UNINVITED mind you…Just nosing around your property and likely expecting refreshments (cookies and doughnuts) which you do not supply; apparently, the Welcome Wagon forgot their basket of goodies to help with hurricane relief…Preparing to take your most valued possessions with a warrant that lacked probable cause and failed to list what they were to take (might as well take it if not nailed down, will break you with the taking and end your life as you knew it, wanted it and entitled to because you had done absolutely nothing wrong.

They will invite the press onto your property whether you want them…invited or not…so they can take pictures and gather a community story that will make International news while providing an aerial view of your newly purchased property yet all you wanted was to get settled and now giving that a second thought!!!

To further welcome you to their community they will loot you and dispose of your most valued property and ‘poof’ there won’t be any criminal charges. The judges in Marion County are NOT smart enough to recluse themselves as they hear your cases which by the way, ahem…are outside their jurisdiction yet award your valuable property to someone else.

NOTE-JP Judge and County Judge are elected officials in Marion County, Texas without training in law and bared by the state to hear cases concerning your property.

Kangaroo CourtGo ahead and try to prove you’re not guilty -doesn’t matter you won’t win the case and your appeal is going to cost you big bucks even though you are filed indigent and they gave you attorneys at Tax Payer expense-Kangaroo Court!!!

They will provide you with an attorney who was a previous DA and County attorney who is at odds with the current DA who controls what happens in Marion County and even freely invites himself onto your property and invites people from neighboring counties, bring inmates from the jail onto your property for the mobbing and looting of your property.11146595_10153555299235250_9093706723838195595_n

District Attorney Bill Gleason-Was this at Tax Payer expense or did he volunteer for his life long dream of caring for big cats?

All done at Tax Payer expense and no Justice was ever obtained for the protection of your God-given rights and Civil Liberties granted to you by the state and US Constitution.

They are all in collusion with each other, neighboring counties and even the federal court in Marshall Texas (New appointment of Federal Judge was Harrison County Judge…All members of the only local golf course I’m sure.) No Justice will ever be served and the corruption and criminal offenses will continue. FBI won’t be bothered looking into the corruption and criminal offenses in one of the smallest and distant counties in Texas so, I guess it’s rather insignificant to expect them to investigate the numerous complaints from residents in Marion County.

These folks don’t have a chance in Hell of this case making the light of day and being properly heard.

The Black Mold and HORRID conditions in the Marion County jail will continue; as will the corruption-mark my words!!!

Marion County inmates sue jail, sheriff

By Robin Y. Richardson

Inmates in the Marion County Jail have filed a $12 million lawsuit against the Marion County Sheriff’s Department and Sheriff David McKnight, claiming that the jail facility is infested with black mold that’s making them ill.

“There’s a black mold contamination,” Derrick Hunt, the first plaintiff listed on the lawsuit, told the News Messenger in a telephone interview. “It’s all over the jail.

“It’s everywhere – in our HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) vents that provides our fresh air, in our showers where we bathe,” the 41-year-old said.

“There’s people in here that’s got very bad health and they’re going down,” said Hunt, who is one of five plaintiffs in the suit.

His co-plaintiffs are: Jeffrey Harper, 56; Reynaldo Campos Jr., 39; William Loflin, 55; and Preston Thompson, 20. According to the petition, the plaintiffs are seeking relief of pain and suffering and mental anguish. They are accusing the defendants of being negligent by failing to assess, remediate and/or perform an abatement of a black mold infestation or contamination in the jail, located in Jefferson.

Sheriff McKnight told the News Messenger in a phone interview on Friday that his office is aware of the lawsuit and categorically denies all the allegations made in the suit.

“It’s in litigation and will be turned over to our attorneys,” McKnight said, advising that they are represented by Flowers and Davis, out of Tyler, in the case.

“We definitely deny that is an issue,” McKnight said of the mold infestation claims.

Despite the denial, the plaintiffs in the case assert that the sheriff and his staff have known about the alleged infestation for more than two years.

“We have a jailer up here that’s been working here several years. He’s told us this black mold has been here for years and sheriff knows about it and he just paints over it,” said Hunt, accusing them of also just wiping the “hot spots.”

“I filed a suit for negligence. I’m not saying it because I’m in jail but if they are going to put us in jail, they need to keep us somewhere safe,” said Hunt. “It’s not a safe environment, not a healthy environment, not conducive to a healthy lifestyle.”

The plaintiffs additionally claim in the lawsuit that they have been denied proper medical attention. Investigating Harper’s complaint, Anthony Mikesh, a program specialist for the Texas Commission on Jail Standards, noted that the jail is in compliance with jail standards.

“After reviewing the allegations with the staff of the Marion County Jail, it was determined that no violation of jail standards has occurred,” Mikesh wrote to Harper.

DO I believe that there is black mold in the Marion County jail, actually, yes I do. Are the conditions horrid-Yes they were…I too was denied my medication…begged to see a doctor and sent several complaints t the captain…Needless to say, I know he was glad to see me go!!!

They had no TTY for the deaf, There wasn’t a single fire alarm system for the deaf, and no interpreter was provided for arrest, meetings with court appointed attorneys or the hearing where one f the accused was denied because the DA said he didn’t have to and would cost too much…He has been corrected although I wonder if anyone at the jail knows the needs and duty he is required to protect civil liberties to inmates and to people in the court room…in general and I have a complete understanding of those men feeling that they need to be protected after speaking up! Bet that restraint chair is still in place and they don’t think twice about using it and tazing someone while being restrained…I wish I had better things to say about a place I thought was going to be my home and home for my retiring animals but no, it was my Hell on earth that I wasn’t well informed about this place!!!

On the outside appears as a quaint old town but hiding in those woods is some of the most evil people I have ever encountered anywhere in my travels with nice members of the community hiding behind closed gates with no trespassing signs and know better than to talk about it or they to just might end up getting three squares at the town’s free Bed and Breakfast at Tax Payer expense.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS/HSLF) is a vegan based Fanatical Animal Rights Extremist/Terrorists organization that is a threat to human relationships with animals. HSUS donates LESS than 1% to helping any animals-They do not operate a single animal shelter. HSLF is the Humane Society Legislative Fund-money donated for the intent of helping animals supplies HSLF with funds. HSUS/HSLF is in association with PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) and ALF (Animal Liberation Front) all vegan based Animal Rights Extremists/Terrorists located within our borders that seek to end all human relationships with animals.

“One generation and out” Wayne Pacelle-ceo HSUS.

HSUS/HSLF stands a huge financial loss if Trump takes office-Don’t befooled There is a real difference between Animal Welfare and vegan based Fanatical Animal Rights Extremist/Terrorists.

Surely I am not the only Animal Welfare blog that you follow or read!!! If Hillary Clinton is elected president there will be little reason to follow this blog as Animal Owners and Animal Lovers will suffer even more losses; many as sever as the loss I encountered in Marion County, Texas when my presence was a threat to the local humane society that sells animals for big bucks and raping more animal owners of their animals.

Not all local humane societies and rescues are interested in your God-given rights and your civil liberties and not all communities obey the law or have law enforcement doing a good job protecting their community from REAL crimes because they are poorly trained, if trained at all, and lack the ability to fight real crime.

Not all judges are trained in law and many have minimal training at best. The JP judge and county judge are forbidden to hear civil cases valued at over $100,000.00 in Marion County, Texas and not all judges respect the laws that bar them from hearing cases where they lack subject matter jurisdiction. NOTE-If you find yourself fighting a case where you find yourself fighting for your God-given rights and civil liberties 1) Seek immediate representation 2) Motion for a jury and 3) Demand a Court of Constitutional Law!!!-CRUCIAL!

Animal Rights1

The truth is Trump is pro-animal usage-ALL usage…Pets, Zoos, Circus, Elephant Rides, hunting, rodeos, performing animals, breeding and will protect your right to eat meat rather than the vegan based Fanatical Animal Rights HSUS Extremist/Terrorist group who want to control what’s on the dinner table tonight.

Before you vote remember, Rover and Fido are hoping that they are your best friend and a major issue in their life so you will take them into consideration in your decision to vote TRUMP!!! This is not new news but instead a reminder. If you love animals DO NOT VOTE FOR HILLARY CLINTON!!! Politics has become intertwined with animals and when you read an endorsement for one of the candidates, liberal Hillary Rodam Clinton and that HSUS considers Republican Donald Trump a threat; there’s a major reason to be concerned for the power and value of your vote!!!

DO NOT VOTE FOR HILLARY (who is in bed with HSUS/HSLF) and here’s why: NOTE-Even the following publication report is HSUS -Fanatical Animal Rights Extremists/Terrorists slanted report…as most media reports are (liberal media reports)…


Humane Society launches ad: Trump presidency a ‘threat to animals everywhere’

The political arm of The Humane Society is mobilizing against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump with a new ad campaign warning that a “Trump presidency would be a threat to animals everywhere.”

The Humane Society Legislative Fund (HSLF) announced its endorsement of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and the launch of a new attack ad against Trump on Wednesday.

“One ticket has a clear, compelling record of support for animal protection, while the other has assembled a team of advisors and financial supporters tied in with trophy hunting, puppy mills, factory farming, horse slaughter, and other abusive industries,” HSLF President Michael Markarian wrote in a blog post.

“The names that Trump’s campaign has floated for engagement on Interior and Agriculture department issues are a ‘who’s who’ of zealous anti-animal welfare activists.”

The ad takes aim at the Republican nominee’s sons for big-game hunting and notes that Donald Trump Jr. has publicly expressed interest in serving as Interior secretary in his father’s administration.

The 30-second video also notes that oil tycoon Forrest Lucas, an adviser to Trump who is also reportedly a candidate for Interior, supports puppy mills, dog-breeding operations that The Humane Society denounces as cruel for the conditions that they impose on the animals.

The HSLF was established in 2004 to lobby on behalf of The Humane Society of the United States and the Fund for Animals. Since then, it has actively sought to sway lawmakers to support legislation that would protect animals, wild and domesticated.

Joe Maxwell, senior political director at the HSLF, said that while the group endorses House and Senate candidates from both parties, this is the first time it has endorsed a presidential candidate.

“We know this is a big step, but one that we felt we needed to make on behalf of our constituency and on behalf of our membership to encourage a vote for Hillary Clinton,” Maxwell said.

Maxwell noted that Clinton’s voting record in the Senate largely aligned with the HSLF’s stances on various animal protection issues.

After every session of Congress, the group puts out a legislative scorecard that grades each lawmaker’s voting record on these issues. Clinton scored a 100 in the 108th and 109th Congresses, and an 83 in the 110th Congress.

In his blog post, Markarian pointed out that Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, had “more of a mixed record on animal protection.”

The Indiana governor, who served in the House for 10 years, had scores ranging from 0 to 53 and opposed a variety of wildlife conservation measures.

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond when asked for comment.

Trump’s policy agenda is not the only thing that worries the animal rights group. Markarian noted that, if elected, Trump would be the first president since Harry Truman not to have a pet in the White House.


Trumps take on animal usage…no need to hold your breath because it is totally pro animal ownership/usage!!!

ZOO WARS-Update/ALERT-Tiger Ridge

•October 7, 2016 • Leave a Comment

“I’m literally sick over this. Physically sick.
So few concrete answers, no update on the conditions of the animals but let me say this, the Ohio dept of agriculture is responsible or this travesty.
They were to ensure the safety and care of the animals until the final outcome of this case. Now the animals have been suffering for who knows how long, Unknown and untreated medical conditions, been tranquilized, dragged to another unfamiliar facility.
Nobody will ever love nor care for those animals like my dad did and would…this is just surreal and absurd to think of how these beloved animals have been treated since being ripped out of their safe, secure, healthy home on a cold 13 degree day almost 2 years ago. Oda you have failed, you failed the animals, the community, and you have tarnished the department of agriculture. We hold you 100% responsible and you will answer for your total lack of regard to not only civil rights violations but to your community as to what you have cost the tax payers of Ohio for paying a man who was letting animals suffer horribly on your watch. You will answer for what you did to Leo…you will be held accountable!!!” -Corrinna  Hetrick-Dankert


Everyone everywhere is exasperated, worried and concerned for The Tiger Ridge animals and the abuse inflicted on those animals by Kasich’s Ohio Department of Agriculture. Easier to have gone ahead and accepted Kenny Hetrick’s application and given him a permit for his animals especially after seeing their community coming together to improve the facility to meet the new standards that were required for permit in the state of Ohio; frankly, no facility can match the upgrade Kenny Hetrick and the community did that exceeds those requirements. Life saving and hearts a flutter would have been what I would have wanted for longstanding animal owners of my community -in my state!!! It has cost Kasich plenty and will ultimately destroy what’s left of his political career. The republican agenda is respect for private property and against civil forfeiture on the most part…Kasich is one of the exceptions and has absolutely nothing to do with public safety or the health and safety of any animal.

Seems government officials are taking themselves too seriously with their new found power, neglects any reasoning to give a member of the community within a state, a chance. While this unemotional stance is the reason they have denied providing Hetrick the necessary permit however, considering the decision was based on laws written due to an emotional stance of one single incident where no one investigated for the truth of what actually happened; it would certainly seem reasonable that any decision to accept or deny a longstanding owner would also be based  on the emotional commitment of an animal owner to his animals.*


Some Tiger Ridge animals moved to new sanctuary

SPEARFISH, S.D. — Some of the exotic animals seized from a Stony Ridge facility in 2015 have been moved again after a tiger got loose and bit a man at the wildlife refuge keeping them in South Dakota.

Three tigers and one bear originally from Tiger Ridge Exotics were among 18 animals removed from Spirit of the Hills Wildlife Sanctuary in Spearfish, S.D., after a tiger there bit the sanctuary director Monday, said Tanya Espinosa, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. The tiger that bit the director was not one of the Tiger Ridge animals.

The Wild Animal Sanctuary of Keenesburg, Colo., has taken in nine tigers, one lion, one wolf, and seven bears this week from the South Dakota facility, Executive Director Pat Craig said.

Nearly all of the animals were underweight and some had medical issues that had been left untreated, he said.

Ohio Department of Agriculture spokesman Mark Bruce told The Blade said federal officials notified Ohio authorities over the weekend about the South Dakota issue. He said he not aware of the medical conditions of the Ohio animals, but he expected to know more after officials in Colorado preformed full medical exams of them.

“The animals are adjusting well to their new environment and feeding schedule,” Mr. Bruce said.

Corrina Hetrick Dankert, daughter of Tiger Ridge owner Kenny Hetrick, said the family blames the Ohio Department of Agriculture for choosing a poor home for the animals.

“We’ve had concerns about this place from day one when they went there. Now we find out this happened, and it’s horrible,” she said. “This is the worst-case scenario. This kind of thing didn’t happen at my dad’s house. To see that they took them from a healthy, happy, secure facility and put them in this guy’s facility … this is as bad as you can get.”

Ms. Dankert said the ODA is directly responsible for what has happened to the Tiger Ridge animals.

“They should have been following up more closely on the care of animals,” she said. “The animals are absolutely suffering at the hands of the ODA. They are making very poor decisions.”

Authorities were alerted late Monday that a tiger was loose. Officials found a staff member bitten several times by the tiger, and a deputy fatally shot the animal to prevent it from escaping, Chief Deputy Paul Hansen of the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office said.

Sanctuary Director Michael Welchynski, who was injured by the tiger, is making a full recovery, according to a Wednesday sanctuary statement. The statement said the tiger, named Boomer, attacked Mr. Welchynski during a regular feeding.

Ms. Espinosa said the Department of Agriculture conducted a routine inspection of the sanctuary Sept. 28. Since then, 18 animals have been transferred from the sanctuary to a Colorado facility, said Ms. Espinosa, who declined to offer many details but said more information will be available in a later inspection report.

The agency was unhappy with some of the animals’ conditions, and the sanctuary thought it was best to relinquish their care to a different facility, sanctuary board president Fred Erdman said.

The state agriculture agency transferred 10 animals removed from Tiger Ridge Exotics to three out-of-state wildlife sanctuaries in September, 2015. The animals were sent to facilities in Arizona and Florida along with the South Dakota sanctuary. Meanwhile, a case in Wood County Common Pleas Court regarding their care remains unresolved.

A liger and a cougar were transferred to Keepers of the Wild in Valentine, Ariz. Three tigers and a leopard went to Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Fla., and three tigers and a Kodiak bear went to Spirit of the Hills.

After initially being seized and before going to the out-of-state facilities, the animals had been in a state facility in Reynoldsburg, near Columbus. Another animal originally taken from Tiger Ridge, a lion, was killed in April, 2015, because of health problems. State agents took the animals Jan. 28, 2015 from the Stony Ridge property because Mr. Hetrick had not obtained a permit to keep the animals as required by state law.

*Note- I was denied the opportunity myself by a local government that lied in order to make any claim against myself and my partner so I know a little about this topic. Hetrick’s animals are accustom to personal contact (as were mine) which has been and will continue to be denied unless those animals are returned to their rightful owner.

Hurricanes Are Life Changing…Please ask for Help /Please Provide to Someone Who Might Need Help

•October 6, 2016 • Leave a Comment

ALERT!-If you wish to donate money to help victims of Hurricane Matthew; do NOT donate to a NFP!!! Anyone needing help can leave a comment to this blog post on how to get in touch with you and I will post your comment in an effort to get help to you…If you don’t need help and wish to get a message out that you’re OK,  feel free to leave a comment to this blog post! Wishing best for whether you remained to ride out the storm or evacuated…

hurricane dolly 002

Born and raised in FL and traveling throughout the United States where Hurricanes make landfall, I have experienced numerous hurricanes and tropical storms…Donna, Camille, Andrew, Katrina and Rita just to name a few and some of the worst and took smaller storms to take me out…I don’t even remember the name of the storm that took the roof off our home…
What was supposed to be a Cat-1 hurricane came in as Cat-2; Hurricane Dolly hit while we were building a new facility, housed in San Bonito, TX…22 miles from the coast (as the crow flies).
I never expected the massive flooding that began after the storm was concluding-Our celebration that the barn we were housed in was still standing, and all the animals were dry and safe from harms way came to an abrupt hault, as it became a nightmare that ultimately led to my demise when seeking ‘hurricane relief’ more than a year after purchasing property and relocated to Marion County, Texas…Instead of taking pride of the animals and new members of the community; they went for our throats and sucked the life from us and literally killed half the animals with the gaul to call it a rescue-Stole my life and my animals NOT because we had done anything wrong other than to trust we would be safe; had the balls to call it a rescue…no one charged of a crime and only did what they did because of the corruption so they could…
Kangaroo Court
A Cat-4 hurricane is approaching FL and looks like the entire state will be effected by Hurricane Matthew…Please be prepared for the worst if u have chosen to remain…Supplies are important because you will only be able to count on yourself during and following the storm…and considering that there is a possibility of a second strike by the same hurricane, you must remain aware that this hurricane experience might become your worse nightmare for months and even years from now…
Important posts about Hurricane Dolly from 2 pages of this blog:

I hope everyone is prepared for what they might be facing-If you have friends and family I beg that you make contact and ask that they stay in-touch with you. Give to individuals and NOT to some NFP that might not pass all the money along to a hurricane victim needing help. HSUS, PETA, RED Cross, ASPCA liars and thieves…to name a few…HSUS provides less than 1% of the money it takes in…

If you are so lucky to not be impacted by this storm please prepare to help someone who might be in need whether they have animals or not. The financial strain and rebuilding is one of the hardest things I have ever faced; with not one relocation but two and both lied about accepting us with open arms and instead led to our demise that cost the lives of many animals.
We were able to ride out natures storm but not the fury of inhumane people looking to gain from our demise. People who should be ashamed of what they did but sadly, these are people  know no shame; such is life in Marion County, Texas!


We have since made a third relocation where life has become easier with everyone we meet welcoming us with open arms and respect one another…Still in the process (years people, YEARS working at it); lacking the help so badly needed…But we’re fine…Concern now for others facing a nightmare of their own…
