We are a watchdog group, mostly exposing animal exploitation ie illegal fundraisers, fake fundraisers, abuse of animals etc. but our narrative has expanded to also expose evil narcissists who are oftentimes the minds behind all of the deception and manipulation they perpetrate behind the scenes.
We have mainly focused on, and include, thoroughly investigating and where necessary, exposing animal cruelty, fake organizations utilizing misleading fundraisers to garner funds for their own hidden agendas (own financial gain, international travel, expensive equipment, video production costs etc.)
In 2016 we started to focus on a particular American individual
REBECCA A. RODRIGUEZ
due to her unwillingness to answer reasonable questions regarding her fundraising activities together with her outright refusal to co-operate with legitimate animal welfare groups. Her pattern of blocking and deleting members of the public who supported these fundraising campaigns was grounds for a full investigation.
We uncovered an alarming pattern of behavior. We revealed multiple breaches of GoFundMe, the platform she utilized in her most successful caper. We uncovered at least 10 fundraisers spanning a small period of time utilizing GoFundMe, Patreon, Indiegogo and others. Worryingly, it appeared that the animals whose imagery she utilized in these fundraisers all got the short end of the stick, ie they got $0 of the donations and the donations miraculously disappeared with no accountability whatsoever.
For further verification we ask that you directly contact the organizations and people who have been used by Rebecca A. Rodriguez to further her own dishonest agenda :
Bandung Zoo : https://www.facebook.com/officialbandungzoo/ who has reported Rodriguez to the authorities and she has an active arrest warrant out for her in Indonesia
Kandi Zoo : email@example.com
Scorpion Wildlife Trading Group who publically ousted Rodriguez themselves : https://www.facebook.com/scorpionmonitor/
Adams County Pet Rescue : https://www.facebook.com/Adams-County-Pet-Rescue-150515418349631/
We have analyzed her distinct pattern of behavior, which has been exceedingly laborious, along with her co-conspirators Alycia Barlow, Pohyee Ooi Holmes or P Ooi Holmes, Tracey Kleber and Marison Guciano.
Most recently Rebecca A. Rodriguez raised $65000 for the supposed “starving Sun Bears of Bandung Zoo”. We have confirmation that Rodriguez knew prior to the fundraiser that the sun bears were not starving and had never been starving! She still went ahead with the fundraiser. The donations are still missing 3 years later and counting.
Rodriguez then opened another GoFundMe Campaign in 2017 to raise funds for an Orangutan named Mikey living in a cage in at Kandi Zoo in Sumatra. Again the donations are missing. To this day that same Orangutan that Rodriguez professed to care about is STILL confined to a substandard cage!
In 2014 Rodriguez became involved in “rebuilding an animal shelter” at Adams County Pet Rescue in Othello, Washington. $125,000 unaccounted for and left behind an entanglement of problems with no accountability or resolution.
Approximately 6 years ago she tried to raise funds via Patreon as “Animal Centric” and wanted you to pay her $1500 per month because she “loved animals”.
She then had a fundraiser for “Barks of Hope” for the pets left behind after Hurricane Katrina in Puerto Rico. Alarmingly in her fundraiser she asked that donations be paid directly into her own business account “RebRod LLC”. Highly irregular and suspicious as she is not a board member or officially associated with Barks of Hope whatsoever!
She then had a fundraiser ostensibly for some dogs in a shelter in Fasano Italy. We exposed that because once again, there was absolutely no clarity as to what proportion of donations would actually be spent on helping the dogs and what proportion was going for “film production costs” and traveling expenses.
She then, with her galpal Alycia Barlow, traveled to Mexico, Bali, Puerto Rico, Germany, Italy and Greece which coincided nicely with the missing donations given for the Sun Bears of Bandung Zoo. $52,000 missing from that campaign. All mysteriously disappeared. And what did they do then?
Created another fundraiser to produce a series on “animal heroes across the world” titled “Lights, Camera, Animals”. The footage of which was captured on their extensive holidays across the world funded by Bandung Zoo’s donations. We exposed that too and it was quickly shut down.
Next, she has evolved into a vegan cooking show guru. Having a very tarnished reputation in the animal welfare arena, Rodriguez and her partner Tracey Kleber have created a pilot episode on “cooking vegan in full-meat restaurants”. It’s called “Cook Vegan For Me” and once again, they are hoping to sell it onto a major television network. Rodriguez has no gainful employment and no income.
Earlier in 2020 we discovered that Tracey Kleber had partnered with Rebecca A. Rodriguez once again and “Cook Vegan for Me” morphed into Toward a Vegan World and yes, you guessed it, they are again fundraising. We do not know what they are fundraising for. Running social media accounts such as Twitter and Instagram, don’t cost a whole lot of money! Keep following the yellow brick road!
Late 2020 up pops her new “business venture” as Paws and Claws Political Action Committee aka Paws and Claws PAC and a YouTube Channel is created and surprise, surprise, asking for “donations” to take on the Federal Government!
