STOP EXPLOITING ANIMALS FOR MONEY + FILM PRODUCTION/INFAMY VIA FUNDRAISING PLATFORMS
STOP ATTEMPTING TO EXTORT MAYORS AND PRESIDENTS OF COUNTRIES WITH YOUR FAKE, OBNOXIOUS PETITIONS!!!!
Who can forget or minimize the blatantly dishonest, lie-ridden, petitions and subsequent GoFundMe fundraiser for the supposedly “starving sun bears of Bandung Zoo” plus the GoFundMe fundraiser for supposedly Mikey the Orangutan in Sumatra who needed a new enclosure (plus multiple other “beneficiaries”) – promised by none other than tried and test con-artist Rebecca A. Rodriguez and her multiple accomplices – Poo Holmes, Alycia Barlow and Tracey Kleber.
Months ago, Rodriguez, yet again, decided to try and insert herself into another “international/foreign” “animal situation” – this time the 150 dogs supposedly “held hostage” by the Mayor of a small town in Italy called Fasano.
Yet again, we found the bullying, terroristic-like measures to try and force a Mayor to kowtow to Rodriguez’s involvement and demands. Another lie-ridden, bullying petition was created stating the Mayor of Fasano – Francesco Zaccaria – was holding these dogs hostage.
Once again, highly manipulative and emotive pictures and phraseology were used. Exactly the same pattern as what occurred with the “starving sun bears of Bandung Zoo”!
And in the Fasano dog situation, Rodriguez even wrote she was looking for ways to FORCE THE MAYOR TO WORK WITH HER! What kind of supposed “animal advocate” is extorting and blackmailing a Mayor? Any Mayor?
Except with the sun bears, Rodriguez raised $65 000, utilized approximately $10 000 on staff salaries plus an additional approximately $4000 on alleged “Indonesia-animal-based” issues!
That’s a miraculous $65 000 – $10 000 = $55 000 – $4 000 =
$51 000 MISSING FROM WWW.GOFUNDME.COM/SUNBEARSINDONESIA!
How is it that $51 000 is UNACCOUNTED FOR? Missing! Gone! And NONE OF THE ANIMAL BENEFICIARIES got even 1 dime! NOT 1 CENT!
Surprise surprise, using the exact same modus operandi and methodology, what do we find? Another GoFundMe fundraiser, this time supposedly to help the 150 dogs of Fasano Italy with which Rodriguez and her accomplices have ZERO INVOLVEMENT!
Rodriguez, when she created her petition to “free the 150 dogs held hostage at Fasano”, LIED ABOUT HER INVOLVEMENT WITH THE MAYOR. The Mayor has NEVER heard of Rodriguez. Rodriguez and her co-conspirators are not officially involved in ANY CAPACITY with the 150 dogs of Fasano although they would dearly like to be!
Again we advise you to READ the GoFundMe very, very carefully! Absolutely NOWHERE is there ANY COMMITMENT to any SPECIFIC DOLLAR AMOUNT “for” the DOGS! The fundraiser goal is $10 000 and all it says is this :
“Many of these are dogs are ill and will need treatment so they can be adopted. And these treatments are expensive. They will also need resources for paperwork and transport so that they can go to homes in other parts of the country and the world“!
Supposedly, thanks to our expose, Tracey Kleber has been forced to fork over $500 (from the $10,000 goal) to the Trustees. We wonder how much of that $10000 will be given to the Trustees? And how much will be used on international travel expenses? This is a bribe to get a foot in. Be fully aware and awake when making a deal with the Devil!
Herein lies the KEY.
The $10 000 will actually be used to transport Rebecca Rodriguez and Alycia Barlow to Fasano Italy from the Pacific Northwest plus their accommodation. Then they will turn the entire event into another video for the “TV” channel on YouTube which they own and operate : Animal Time TV – and they will use whatever small contacts they have left in the Pacific Northwest to try and relocate the dogs for adoption!
THIS IS ABOUT FILM PRODUCTION. THE MAJORITY OF THE FUNDS WILL BE UTILIZED ON COSTS NOT ASSOCIATED WITH DOGS’ TREATMENT OR VETERINARY CARE! That you can take to the Bank!
The trustees who are operating the shelter also, NEVER heard of Rodriguez!
Furthermore, what is even more alarming is Rodriguez’s attempt to DEFRAUD THE PUBLIC once again! Via her website, www.oneanimalworld.com she is asking you to donate to a GoFundMe fundraiser with a goal of $10 000 and insidiously and supposedly innocuously also puts the link to the official trustee’s fundraiser on Facebook ensuring the public are fooled once again!
And wouldn’t you know it, the $10 000 is payable directly to Rodriguez’s partner Tracey Kleber and once again, alleging they are going to be helping with veterinary bills and rehoming! Proven to be complete lies and utter nonsense!!!!
The official shelter trustees who care for the 150 dogs – Quattrozampe Nel Cuore – Fasano already has a fundraiser on Facebook trying to raise 5 000 Euros for veterinary and other costs associated with the dogs –
and they are the ones updating on the situation of the 150 dogs – NOT Rodriguez – who is getting all her “information” directly from their Facebook page!
Rodriguez, with her fraudulent fundraiser for $10 000 US is stealing money away from the legitimate carers of the dogs on the ground in Fasano! Plus, glaringly, once again THERE IS NO COMMITMENT OR EVEN ANY MENTION WHATSOEVER TO PAY THE FULL $10 000 OR $X AMOUNT TO THE OFFICIAL TRUSTEES WHO ARE CARING FOR THE DOGS for anything related to medical/veterinary costs!
What then is Rodriguez and her co-conspirators fundraising for?
We can answer :
Rodriguez is fundraising to cover the costs of INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS for herself and her best friend, Alycia Barlow. Plus FILM PRODUCTION COSTS. For another episode for Animal Time TV on YouTube – owned and operated by Rebecca Rodriguez. We can guarantee a paltry amount of the total $10 000 will ever reach any dog!
Once again, an attempt to leverage a Mayor with bullying tactics, financially profit from an animals’ dire predicament in another country – this time Italy – making it difficult for the public to understand exactly what is going on – EXACTLY the same thing happened with the sun bears in Indonesia!
DO NOT SUPPORT FRAUDULENT FUNDRAISERS THAT ARE CAREFULLY CRAFTED AND DISGUISED TO FOOL YOU! UNLESS THERE IS A COMMITMENT OF A DOLLAR AMOUNT IN WRITING, YOU CAN BET ON YOUR LAST DOLLAR A PALTRY, IF ANY, SMALL AMOUNT WILL BE SPENT ON HELPING ANY ANIMAL!
