The public is constantly subjected to the musings and ramblings of Rebecca A.Rodriguez and her co-conspirator Poo Holmes, about their alleged “world-wide animal work” and all their supposed accomplishments for animals.
ALL EVIDENCE CONSISTENTLY POINTS TO ENDLESS FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGNS VIA GOFUNDME, PATREON AND INDIEGOGO ASKING FOR “DONATIONS” FOR SOME ANIMALS SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD BUT IT’S ALL A RUSE TO COVER TRAVEL, ACCOMMODATION AND FILM PRODUCTION COSTS THAT NEVER BENEFIT ANY ANIMAL! THE ONLY ONE BENEFITING IS REBECCA A. RODRIGUEZ!
On any one of several web sites, Facebook pages (secret and public), Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter and not to mention the Change.org petition and Care2.org petitions, we are constantly barraged with on-going outrageous claims about their world-wide animal work that constitute absolute drivel. So of course, we starting digging around. This is what these 2 alleged “animal advocates fighting for animals” have ACTUALLY achieved. In 30 years!!!
ISLAND OF GUAM : 30 years ago in 1989 while Rodriguez was living on a military base with her military husband, she barreled her way into forming an “animal welfare organization” on the island of Guam because nobody wanted her around and she had no friends. The other army wives froze Rodriguez out so she had to find something else to occupy her time. Since the “formation” of the organization, the good people on the island of Guam confirm they haven’t heard a word from Rodriguez since 1989. Fantastic, blady fantastic! But she WAS in the press! Wonderful!
ADAMS COUNTY PET RESCUE : In 2014 Rodriguez talked her way into being able to turn the rebuilding of an animal shelter into a film production! Something she could profit from. Something which benefitted her and got her into the newspapers. For her “animal work” you see. Adams County Pet Rescue had raised all the donations ($250 000), had already secured a piece of land for the construction and had done all the hard work by the time Rodriguez and her film production crew landed. Rodriguez then told everyone including the Press that she was operating “Animal House” a registered Charity, thus all their donations received from the public were safe and legally accounted for. Over $100000 missing and unaccounted for. Also, nope, no registered Charity. The “Charity” “Animal House” registered by Rodriguez 3 years later in 2017!!! That is FRAUD!All funds funneled via Rodriguez’s company RebRod LLC. Then there was the issue of a $25000 grant. In order for Rebecca Rodriguez, “animal activist” to get her grubby little hands on that $25000 grant she had to force Adams County Pet Rescue to perform spay/neuters on elderly pets, operations they had all previously voted against doing due to the high risk of fatalities. In other words, ACPR would be FORCED to spay/neuter older animals even with all the associated risks so Rodriguez could get the $25000 grant! Money over animals, that’s what Rodriguez chose. Wonderful world-wide animal work “accomplishment”. Oh yes! Not!
The entire “production” was complete and utter chaos. Many ACPR staff and management resigned in disgust after being subjected to Rodriguez’s underhanded, duplicitous and dishonest manipulation and constant bullying. The other people involved managed to pull the entire rebuild off but Rodriguez and her film production crew took all the glory. And the animals that Rodriguez “helped”? Please explain HOW IT WAS REBECCA RODRIGUEZ WHO HELPED THESE ANIMALS??? She did not raise the donations, she did not find the land, she did not organize sponsorship, she did not fulfill her legally mandated agreement and she put animals’ lives at risk!
BANDUNG ZOO : In very early 2017, Rebecca Rodriguez and her various accomplices : Poo Holmes, Alycia Barlow, Tracey Kleber and Marison Guciano decided they had cottoned on to an idea to make a whole boatload of money and get to be in the newspapers again! Despite all of them reaching out to multiple, independent wildlife authorities regarding the “starving sun bears of Bandung Zoo” and being specifically told that the sun bears are NOT STARVING
and that Bandung Zoo is being helped since early May 2016 by PKBSI and Taman Safari Bogor joined by Cee4Life in 2017. They were repeatedly informed Bandung Zoo was being consistently upgraded over time with multiple enclosure upgrades etc. There were no starving animals. If there are no starving animals what is the fundraiser really for? Answer that!
Thus, KNOWING THE SUN BEARS AND OTHER ANIMALS ARE NOT STARVING, ARE NOT SUFFERING, DO NOT HAVE TB etc. etc. what do they decide to do? Why they start a freaking fundraiser for the “starving sun bears of Bandung Zoo”!!!!!! Yes, on GoFundMe, Rodriguez and Poo tell the world the sun bears ARE starving. They are so hungry they eat their own feces to survive!!! They also update the GoFundMe and Care2 and Change petitions with a constant stream of utter bs. All a gigantic ploy to pocket some serious money. And that is EXACTLY what they did. They raised $65000 and then vanished with the majority of the funds after paying out around $4000 to organizations/people/animals who weren’t even named/identified beneficiaries! Remember the supposed starving sun bears they were fundraising for and so concerned about? Didn’t get a dime! Oh yes, wonderful world-wide accomplishments for animals! These people deserve medals! For being pathological liars and con-artists!
150 DOGS OF FASANO, ITALY : Rebecca Rodriguez tries to bully and force the Mayor of Fasano Italy, Francesco Zaccaria, (with whom she has had zero dealings despite repeatedly writing that she is working directly with him), to work specifically with Rodriguez and her “expert team” by trying to insert herself into the issue of 150 dogs who have been sequestered per government instructions in a small town in Italy, the town of Fasano. So how does Rodriguez help the animals of Fasano? She and her co-conspirator Poo Holmes, utilize their tried and tested method : 1st Create a harassing, bullying, slanderous petition and rile the public up. 2nd Conjoin another GoFundMe fundraiser, supposedly for the 150 dogs. Rodriguez suddenly has her co-conspirator Tracey Kleber living in Puglia Italy to host the GoFundMe.
The goal is to raise $10000 “for the 150 dogs of Fasano”. Thanks to the discovery of this fraudulent fundraiser the Trustees overseeing the 150 dogs are alerted and suddenly Tracey Kleber was forced to hand over the $500 already raised of the $10000.
It remains to be seen exactly how much of that $10000 is going to actually benefit the dogs moving forward! We surmise, thanks to our pressure campaign, Kleber and Rodriguez may just be forced to turn over the full $10000 to Quattrozampe Nel Cuore Fasano, if they manage to fundraise that amount, putting a spanner in the works because Rodriguez intended on using the majority of these funds to cover international flights and accommodation from the Pacific Northwest to Italy for herself and co-conspirator Alycia Barlow for what?
For film production, friends!!!! It will become an episode for their YouTube Channel! Time will tell how the remaining $9500 will be spent. Watch this space! Fame and money are the root of all evil! Benefit/accomplishments to/for the animals? Absolutely nothing! Just another scam they’ve been called out on!
BARKS OF HOPE : Rebecca Rodriguez has a convoluted and complicated history with Barks of Hope in Puerto Rico. She even registered http://www.barksofhope.us which is highly suspicious since she is not a legal representative or legal affiliate of Barks of Hope in any way.
Rodriguez ran another GoFundMe fundraiser supposedly for the “pets left behind after Hurricane Maria” but instead of donating directly to Barks of Hope, she set it up so donations are paid to her. Her goal was $20000. She publically raised $6000 but how much was paid in direct contributions? (Just like sun bears’ fundraiser). Where is proof she transferred those funds to Barks of Hope? How does Barks of Hope even know how much Rodriguez took in unless they have access to her bank account and clearly, they don’t. How does IRS keep track of all these “donations”?
LIGHTS, CAMERA, ANIMALS! : What did we find in May 2018? Why yet another fundraiser this time hosted by Tracey Kleber, another “expert team member” of Rebecca Rodriguez this time using Indiegogo supposedly to showcase “animal heroes” around the world.
Guess what? Rebecca Rodriguez accompanied by surprise, surprise her best friend and flying monkey partner Alycia Barlow during the months November 2017 to January 2018 managed to finance several international holidays which coincided nicely with the missing donations from the Sun Bears campaign. They traveled to Germany, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Bali,Puerto Rico and Indonesia visiting animal shelters and capturing raw footage for their new idea on “animal heroes” who operate on the “fringes of society”. Now they’ve just spent the money that legally belonged to the sun bears of Bandung Zoo on financing THEMSELVES. Ask Rodriguez or Barlow if they are trust fund babies. Neither of them work! How exactly did they put together $40000 for all these holidays? Like I said, amazingly, it all coincided with the missing funds from http://www.gofundme.com/sunbearsindonesia
When we exposed their ridiculous quest to yes, you got it, request ADDITIONAL FUNDS for their project “Lights, Camera, Animals!” to cover film production costs they quickly suspended the project. Not only did these scammers rip off the sun bears of Bandung Zoo and disappear with $65000, after they used those funds to travel world-wide, they had the cheek to then ask for MORE DONATIONS to finalize the production of “Lights, Camera, Animals!” because they had already spent all the sun bears money! Absolutely disgustingly dishonest. These people have no shame!
So since 1989, precisely what has Rebecca Rodriguez and all her accomplices actually accomplished for a single animal? Everything they do is done in duality – there is always a reason behind supposedly helping an animal and it always involves money, attention and fame. Rodriguez claims everyone is jealous of her accomplishments and is intent on making an entire documentary on……….. herself of course! All about how as an “animal advocate” she is bullied because people are jealous, envious and greedy!! We can’t find any accomplishments. All we have found is constant exploitation of animals for money, attention and press coverage.
There is no jealousy because there is nothing to be jealous of! Nobody envies a crooked, warped, dangerous, sociopathic, pathological liar who consistently exploits animals for money and fame, lies to the public to raise funds “for animals” and cannot own her dishonest behavior! Nobody else stole from the animals and lined their pockets. The proof is in the pudding. There are NO accomplishments for animals at your hands therefore how can someone be jealous of nothing?
