Taking a critical look at the duplicitous and evil behavior of Rebecca A. Rodriguez, who she is, what she does and how she operates. It all pertains to animals and fundraising. The fundraising never benefits the animals. The fundraising is often (mostly) 100% dishonest and utilizing blatant lies, serves only to line Rodriguez’s bank account and quest for fame. (Don’t believe us? Keep reading and see the proof for yourself!)
Rodriguez loves to tell a story. The story looks and sounds legitimate and professional but if you scratch the gold off, the rust shows.
Rebecca Rodriguez is also known as Rebecca A. Rodriguez or Beccy Rodriguez.
The company or operating names she uses include : Animal Time TV, Lucky Head Films, Animal Centric, One Animal World, One Animal World Foundation, Animal Time LLC, Animal Time, Pacific Animal Society, Indonesia Animal Welfare Society, Flight Foundation and Lights, Camera, Animals!
The trick to understanding all these fundraisers is to read every single line very carefully. Take the story apart. That is where you will find the truth. There is never, ever any commitment in any of these fundraisers that commit a specific Dollar amount to any specific animal / animal mission. Therein lies the key.
There is so much evidence, so much fraud, so much duplicity, even trying to summarize it succinctly is very difficult. So I apologize for the length of this post. But I’m providing you with a pattern of behavior that proves Rodriguez exploits animals for money and fame. It’s very sad indeed because funds are being diverted from legitimate organizations and animal missions.
ADAMS COUNTY PET RESCUE FUNDRAISER + MISSION :
In 2014 Rodriguez talked her way into being able to turn the rebuilding of an animal shelter into a film production! Something she would produce with her “expert team” and something she could profit from and something which benefitted her and her usual accomplices and got her into the press. For her “animal work” you see.
She took in $100000 under the guise of operating a “Charity” which she told to the Mayor of Othello, Sean Logan, Management and team of Adams County Pet Rescue, volunteers and the Press! She alleged she was operating “Animal House Charity” which did not exist at the time. “Animal House” was only registered as a Charity 3 years after the completion of this project. That $100000 is still unaccounted for.
I’m not sure why Rodriguez considers this project a success and publishes all over the web about this “accomplishment” because Rodriguez actually did absolutely nothing but cause discord, chaos and used bullying and underhanded tactics within this project. Rodriguez also clearly did none of the hard work. Adams County Pet Rescue had themselves raised all the donations ($250 000), had already secured a piece of land for the construction and had done all the slog by the time Rodriguez and her film production crew landed.
Then there was the issue of a $25000 grant. In order for Rebecca Rodriguez, “animal activist” and supposed “animal lover” 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 dealings. 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 STARVING SUN BEARS MISSION :
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” prior to their fundraiser they were specifically told that the sun bears were not starving and had never been starving. If that was the case the fundraiser and mission are defunct/void/have no merit, right?
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 Holmes tell the world the sun bears ARE starving. They are so hungry they eat their own feces to survive!!!
They also update the GoFundMe.com and Care2.org and Change.org petitions with a constant stream of utter fabrication. 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!
At this juncture we discover yet another fundraiser!
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 fundraiser, supposedly trying to raise $32600 to showcase “animal heroes” around the world.
And what might you ask is $32600 for? Why of course, it’s all expenses related to film production! Gee, what a surprise! All nicely packaged into fooling you into believing you are actually helping animals somewhere in the world! And let’s not forget Rodriguez has her own equipment, her own film-editing software, her own film production company so exactly what ARE all these costs? Remember, read every single line. There you will find the truth! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/animal-house-around-the-world#/
Guess what? Rebecca A.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 : http://www.gofundme.com/sunbearsindonesia
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” “Lights, Camera, Animals” about individuals who operate on the “fringes of society” while trying to help animals. Sounds good, right? Nope!
Now they’ve just spent the money that legally belonged to the sun bears of Bandung Zoo on financing their travels, accommodation, food and innoculations etc! Ask Rodriguez or Barlow if they are trust fund babies? Neither of them work! How exactly did they put together thousands of Dollars for all these holidays?
Like I said, amazingly, it all coincided with the missing funds from http://www.gofundme.com/sunbearsindonesia
Proof of Rodriguez and Barlow’s travels, see above.
150 DOGS OF FASANO, ITALY :
In and around April we see Rebecca Rodriguez trying 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”. Now of course, the 1st question must be, what is that $10000 for specifically?
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 directly to the Trustees! 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, 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 affiliate of Barks of Hope. The main operating website for Barks of Hope is this : http://www.barksofhope.org
Rodriguez ran another GoFundMe fundraiser supposedly for the “pets left behind after Hurricane Maria” for Barks of Hope but instead of donating directly to Barks of Hope, she set it up so donations are paid directly to her. Her goal was $20000. She publically raised $6000 but how much was paid in direct contributions to Rodriguez’s Paypal account Rebrod LLC? (Just like sun bears’ fundraiser). Where is proof she transferred these 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”?
And while all these fundraisers and missions are operating, Rebecca Rodriguez is still conning the public via her website http://www.oneanimalworld.com What do we mean?
ONE ANIMAL WORLD MISSION :
One Animal World continues to be a source of money for Rodriguez. She funnels donations into her for-profit corporation RebRod LLC. She asks for donations for animal-related situations she has no involvement with. She asks for donations for completed projects! Yes really! Here are a selection of all the One Animal World push for donations, supposedly helping some animals somewhere in the world…….. Just take your pick and use your imagination!
