Who really needs facts anyway?

Posted by P4PO on January 30, 2020 at 9:05 PM

Those of us at P4PO keep a “watchlist” of people in authority of whom we should be keeping track, just in case they decide to be the letter of the law rather than follow it. Well, one of those authorities recently decided she didn’t need no stinkin’ badges. And she is one of those figures who needs a nice ego stroke when laying down the law against “evil breeders.”

This lawless law figure is town ACO in Bloomfield Connecticut, Christine “Chris” Sparks. 

https://www.courant.com/community/bloomfield/hc-xpm-2013-04-29-hc-bloomfield-animal-control-author-0501-20130429-story.html" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://https://www.courant.com/community/bloomfield/hc-xpm-2013-04-29-hc-bloomfield-animal-control-author-0501-20130429-story.html

 

“Sparks, got into the animal control business after starting out in animal rescue. Her first save was a malnourished and neglected cat that lived in the same Southern California apartment complex as Sparks.

Sparks started her career as a volunteer at the ASPCA, working her way up from kennel cleaning to cruelty investigations. She took courses at a community college and eventually became an animal control officer, working in Portland and Cromwell for four years before joining Bloomfield.

"I needed to affect punishment on the abusers," Sparks said.



 

She is important you know! She wrote two books! We won’t link so we don’t give her more traffic but here are the book covers.


 

 

 

So why is she suddenly in our direct line of sights? Well, it seems we had a message in our inbox telling us that she has executed a raid and seized animals of a prominent breeder. ILLEGALLY!!! (No! We know it doesn’t happen!)

It looks like the call was for a noise complaint of outdoor dogs. She went to investigate the noise complaint and asked to go into the buildings at the breeder’s home. The breeder declined the inspection, demanding that the authorities get a search warrant. The breeder is not a commercial kennel and is not subject to random kennel inspections. Well, Sparky was all buzzed out about this recalcitrance from the breeder and promised she would file a warrant.

 

According to the warrant the complaint was PHONED IN by a Lindsey Bellanger. Public access records do not show any neighbors directly or in the corresponding neighborhood with anything resembling that name. Hmmm…. (More on Lindsey later ��;)

 

 

Sparky is a "renowned" ANIMAL RIGHTS AUTHOR… hmmm interesting indeed.

 

And just at the beginning of January, one of the biggest animal rights cells [based out of Bloomfield] had an advocacy for animals conference. This same conference that Sparky has been a guest speaker at in the past. She is an obvious animal rights supporter.

And this group publicly supports that they are in the pockets of some of Connecticut’s legislators to push for “puppy mill bans, ” which will be voted on in the next two weeks.

So yeah maybe just a hot-headed ACO. Or Not.

 

 

 

 

Animal Activist - Killing Zoos

Posted by P4PO on August 20, 2019 at 10:00 AM

A new Guest Blogger (NGB for short). NGB was nice enough to agree to help while or regular blogger is on a much-needed sabbatical.

In a stunning move, Virginia's top animal rights extremist, Michelle Welch, who moves and shakes with convicted felons, personally led an illegal raid on a beloved second-generation exotic animal zoo in Winchester, Virginia. Welch is a good example of too much power being bestowed on one person. She acts as a 'special prosecutor', overriding locals who know their community, to go after and shut down businesses throughout the state that she is ideologically opposed to. Her most recent target is a 40 year old family owned small exotic animal zoo. Wilson's Wild Animal Park, now in its second-generation of family ownership is a well-loved local institution. Every year, owner Keith Wilson hosts a charity drive called "Boo in the Zoo" to raise money for children with autism and rents his animals out for many local live nativity shows through the holiday season. Keith is so well respected in the exotic animal business that his camels have been exhibited on "Fox and Friends" in New York and showcased on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC and stood on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court as part of Faith in Action's annual Christmas demonstration. Just two weeks ago, Keith Wilson, showcased his animals at the local Frederick County Fair. Now Wilson's zoo sits empty. No children are happily feeding the goats or the unique wooly Hungarian Mangalica pigs. No awed adults are gazing at the tigers or looking curiously at the two majestic lions who doze in the sun. No families are happily browsing in the pumpkin patch. Just two weeks after the county fair, Michelle Welch led an out of state coalition of animal rights activists to seize and steal all of Wilson's animals. The animals are all gone. A courthouse worker with loose lips states they were shipped to Colorado in violation of USDA interstate shipping regulations. Probably to one of the many 'sanctuaries' that house animals in captivity that have been saved from being held in captivity. Yes, you read that right. If an animal rights activist holds an animal in captivity in a non-profit 'sanctuary' where they personally pocket all the tax-free donations it is perfectly acceptable. However, in America today if you are a small business owner who owns animals and people pay you to see them and you pay taxes on your business, that's not acceptable. Welch likes to brag in her bios that she's the President of the Virginia Animal Fighting Taskforce. It's a high-sounding name for an animal rights front group founded by five time convicted felon John "JP" Goodwin. Goodwin, a former Animal Liberation Front (ALF) terrorist, was outed in court years ago as a con artist.


He sells himself as an animal fighting expert but court testimony in Wisconsin revealed that he's never seen a dog fight in his life. Welch is no better. She's made her career out of destroying animal owners but she herself has no education in animal care. In 2015, with just nine years of experience, she was named to head the nation’s first Attorney General's Animal Law Unit giving her unlimited power to destroy anyone in the state. Meanwhile, Wilson's Wild Animal Park has spent years fighting off the animal killers of PETA who have attacked Keith several times.

PETA is notorious for being caught running mobile death vans in 2005. They famously stood trial for the "Piggly Wiggly Dumpster" incidents after dozens of dead dogs and cats were found to have been killed by PETA operatives. More recently PETA settled a lawsuit in 2017 when they were caught stealing and killing a little girls Chihuahua. The extremists behind PETA make no secret of the fact that they are completely opposed to human ownership of animals all the way down to the dog at your feet or the cat on your window sill. The fight has now been moved to the courtroom where Keith Wilson has to defend himself against a government determined to outlaw America's zoos, farms and pet owners.





Sweet Lies!

Posted by P4PO on May 10, 2019 at 7:50 PM

No matter how normal people like to make themselves seem to the public sooner or later their true selves tend to come out. I recently introduced you to Cynthia Sweet owner of Sweet Paws rescue in Massachusetts. Looking through her media appearances and Facebook page was a trip down the proverbial rabbit hole. The very first thing that jumped out at me though was the above post. She is admitting that the reason she wanted these dogs away from the breeder is because she loathes breeders. Well, now that we have that out of the way let’s take a closer look at Ms. Cynthia.


The most important thing to know about Cynthia is that she doesn’t seem to have much fondness for the truth. She emphatically states that none of the dogs that were turned over to her rescue had ever been to the vet. That lie managed to get people up in arms fast and the donations, of course started pouring in.

 


Apparently it never occurred to the unthinking masses that there are ways to find out if that was true or not. It took about 5 minutes before people started messaging P4 with links to the dogs health clearances. It has been quite a mystery how this magical breeder could get OFAs on her dogs without going to a vet.

Newsflash: You can’t.




If you follow the P4PO Facebook page you will have seen several postings about this already, so there’s no need to add more here.


So, now that we know Cynthia may not always tell the truth everything she has said suddenly becomes suspicious.

Let’s look at the entire post that I shared screenshots from above. It’s full of deceptive statements with one goal in mind, raising more and more money.




Because I know how to use the Google machine and apparently Cyndy Lou Liar can’t I decided to look at the pedigrees of the breeders dogs. Anyone can do this, so I am not going to take up time and space here posting more than one. Here is the pedigree for Mia,one of the bitches seized.



The pretty purple colors mean I clicked on each of those links and checked health testing. Guess what? They are all health tested, so Cyndy Lou Liar is being true to form and making up a false narrative probably in hope of raising more money for her “rescue”. Clearly the breeder was doing the exact opposite of what Cynthia claims because her pedigrees show generation after generation of health-tested dogs. Mia not only has OFA Good hips and Normal elbows, her Golden Retriever form Ichthyosis status is clear. What this means is Mia has been cleared through DNA. Ichthyosis is a skin disorder that may appear in some lines of the breed. A breeder who tests for it obviously cares about the health of her dogs.


Apparently Cynthia doesn’t know enough about dogs to know that papilloma just means warts. This screenshot is from another heartbreaking case we blogged about and is shared with permission.



Of course, Cyndy Lou Liar Knows she will make even more money from the dogs if she lies about the severity of the virus.


Cynthia sure does love her buzzwords though, especially when referring to the dogs as “aggressive, skittish, unsocialized and the big one medically compromised”. Brace yourself for the following pictures taken the day CLL got the dogs.

Anyone working with aggressive dogs knows that the way to handle them is not to pack them into a van and then bring them to an unknown destination and have strangers take them out of crates. That is a recipe for disaster, and you can see Cyndy did the right thing knowing these dogs were aggressive and made sure only experienced people were handling these dogs with catchpoles and appropriate clothing.

Just kidding. You can see in the following pictures how concerned she truly was about these dogs being aggressive.



This volunteer is obviously terrified and the dog is totally skittish.


These two are totally freaking out, between the strangers and the camera they can’t decide if they should maul the cameraman of flee in a panic.

 

 

I think the one on the right is going for the jugular and the one on the left is frantically trying to hide from the volunteer.


I commend all the volunteers especially this jolly fellow for putting their lives and limbs in danger handling the skittish aggressive dogs.


I think the one on the right is going for the jugular and the one on the left is frantically trying to hide from the volunteer.

CLL loves her little rants and is easily triggered especially about money and we are definitely not the first ones to question the fact that the rescue that she owns, runs and is the employed by has close to $250,000 in assets.


Well this is been fun, and I can’t wait for you all to see what’s coming up next!


(Shout out to RM for helping me with this, who would have ever thought this day would come xoxo)

 



Question Everything

Posted by P4PO on May 8, 2019 at 9:15 PM

This is a quick little blog just ask a question.

There was a raid recently in Massachusetts of Linder Pernice, who is a golden retriever breeder. Our earlier blog covered a little bit of the rescue that now has her dogs. One of the biggest claims the rescue has been making is that the sweetest dogs never saw a vet. Further proof that people who run rescues have most of the general public and the media completely fooled. Since I have seen nothing yet that leads me to believe this breeder has broken any laws I haven’t done much digging on her yet as the people behind the scenes are the ones that matter in these instances. In talking about this raid with a friend she mentioned to me that she had been looking at some of the breeders dogs and was wondering how dogs with OFA numbers managed to get those numbers without ever seeing a vet. So for everyone who is believing what the media is saying that these dogs have never been vetted here is my question;

HOW DO YOU GET OFA NUMBERS WITHOUT GOING TO A VET?

Because I need to know, I’ve been wasting a lot of money over the years going to a vet for OFA numbers if there’s a magical way to get them without seeing a vet.




Please, if anyone knows the answer to that question message the page and give us that magical information. I mean here’s Brenda Hamelin the animal control officer who took the dogs and has been helping write the narrative. Does this look like a face that would lie?



The Mass Goldens

Posted by P4PO on May 8, 2019 at 10:55 AM

So, unless you live under a rock you have seen the recent raid in Massachusetts that happened to a Golden retriever breeder.

The quick version is that after 17 years the ACO In Millis Massachusetts finally fulfilled her vendetta against Linda Pernice and managed to get her dogs removed.

As this case is unfolding pretty much as I type there is not a lot of information out yet. Thankfully we have been contacted by someone who claims to have first hand knowledge of what a farce this seizure truly appears to be. (Yeah, we have verified the anonymous informants information and claims so don’t bore us by going there.)


Once more details officially come out we will share more in depth about this breeder and her journey. For now just know her biggest crime seems to be that she is a breeder and what makes this situation worse is people in the show community are (as usual) refusing to support this breeder because she has committed the worst sin in dogdom… Wait for it…..

SHE DOES NOT SHOW HER DOGS!

Thankfully most of the people reading this blog are capable of critical thinking and understand that people, yes, even the great unwashed general public deserve to be able to purchase purebred dogs and that we NEED pet breeders.


All that is for another day though. Today I want to introduce you all to the “rescue” that now has the dogs.


Sweet Paws Rescue is, according to them “A registered non profit animal rescue based in Massachusetts.we are a grassroots, boots-on-the-ground, Shelter list, foster based and volunteer powered organization. We can really work with in two of the poorest counties in Mississippi and Alabama and since 2011 we have rescued over 7000 puppies, dogs and cats that would not have a chance at life otherwise. We are also a local resource for the abandoned and displaced, and animals seized in cruelty cases.” (There is more but I’m not skilled enough to copy and paste it and got tired of typing.)


So noble, it almost sounds like it is being run by a White Knight from the days of yore.

Well, I know it has been a long time since I have blogged, but when I started researching what this rescue is really about I got so upset I knew I had to share. I can assure you that they are the furthest thing from the image they attempt to foster as is possible.


As you can see here from their financials they have a net assets of $247,977. That is after their revenue of $537,493 and their expenses of $428,482. They don’t do too bad, and I will include the link at the end of this blog for everyone to follow if they want to see all of the information.





Interesting, that with that money coming in and with $240,977 in the bank by their own admission where the dogs are kept is in constant need of repair and the people in charge of repairing it have to beg for help with free tools to make repairs. Why can’t this rescue be bothered to spend a few hundred dollars and purchase proper tools?




With $240,000+ in assets they seriously can’t buy a few tools? Where is the money going? Why isn’t it important that they maintain their facility appropriately? I would think that would be one of the main concerns and that they would not be miserly in that situation.


That’s just a matter of me being curious to be honest. I really would love to know the answer though, maybe the people in charge will message the page and let me know. I do know that the owner of the rescue Cynthia Sweet has her rent, cell phone and gas paid for by the rescue, other than that though she claims to pay her own bills. But more on that next blog.


My real interest came when I read the information in the following two screenshots

First, this one…



It seems to me this rescue knew they would be getting a windfall of purebred dogs in the near future and didn’t want to bother with their usual product of southern dogs. (I will go into those details in a future blog.) As we all know, as much money as there is to be made with miscellaneous rescues, purebreds are where the money is at.

I also question the statement that they are not a shelter. They are apparently an official not-for-profit and have a building that is in constant disrepair yet they are not a shelter? So curious. If they are not shelter and they are foster based what building needs to be repaired? (No worries, I know the answer to that and you all will too next blog.)


This next screenshot is a simple comment for people to come and volunteer. But I found it interesting that they seem to always have puppies. Of course that’s where the moneys at because people do want puppies and breeders don’t produce enough for a pet markets so this awfu this next screenshot is a simple comment for people to come and volunteer. But I found it interesting that they seem to always have puppies. Of course that’s where the money’s at because people do want puppies and breeders don’t produce enough for pet markets so there’s Often a need for people to go to these retail rescue locations. Cynthia definitely knows where the money is at.



You know what they say...Follow the money!


Behind 13

Posted by P4PO on October 14, 2018 at 10:45 PM


Who is behind the campaigns for Amendment 13?

All roads lead back to H$U$





Although there was never really much of a question, it should be clear who’s behind this. H$U$ is the master of deception, so how are they using this money to deceive the public?

TV…..



Speaking of that road to H$U$...




Bigger $ = Bigger signs

The Positive Economic Impact of Racing Greyhounds

Posted by P4PO on September 4, 2018 at 1:05 PM

POSITIVE ECONOMIC IMPACT ON FLORIDA

 

Since 2007, the racing greyhound community has contributed almost 10 million dollars to the Florida school systems. If Amendment 13 passes, that is just one of the major losses for the state.

Let’s look at the impact in Palm Beach alone. Remember to multiply that amount by every track in the state—the effects would be terribly devastating.


Here are the PBKC’s economic impact and community contributions (2017)

- 539 employees with payroll of $16.8 million

- 12 kennels with 48 employees, earning $4.2 million in purses

- $4.8 million State of Florida & PB County taxes paid

- $10.4 million spent locally on goods and services

- $484,623 donated to local charities

- $86,316 contributed to Greyhound adoption programs


Now that we know the financial loss in JUST Palm Beach alone, let’s think about the rest of the state.


http://floridapolitics.com/archives/259104-jeff-kottkamp-paul-hawkes-ending-greyhound-racing-cost-state-500m


Let’s consider the 3,000 humans that will be out of work. Many of these people have worked in this industry their entire adult lives. They may be second, or even third generation “dog people”

Grey2K and H$U$ employees do not need to worry about their next paycheck—the millions of dollars in donations, generated by misleading propaganda will keep them going forever.




NYC and Why We Can Never Stop

Posted by P4PO on September 2, 2018 at 8:25 PM


http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/ny-edit-horses-20180831-story.html?outputType=amp


New guest blogger here with a very old fight that seems to refuse to die, and trust me, as a former NYC resident, it NEEDS to die. 


When we were in  the midst of the first battle with the Mayor and the nefarious NYClass, I saw with my own eyes the amazing iconic industry that makes Central Park one of the most visited areas in the state.


Every day on my walk from my apartment in Hell's kitchen, I would pass the hackline and stop and chat with the fabulous drivers as the horses waited to go to work. I ws able to witness the hellacious behaviors the anti-carriage horse zealots displayed and got involved with the fight to save the industry. We won. Or did we?


This past week we learned that DeBlasio has once again bowed to the pressures of a misinformed group of protein starved individuals and now wants to move the carriages to inside the park only.


While this is not an actual "ban" this is the beginning of slowly phasing out a much beloved part of the city. 


Our friend and champion of the industry Christina Hansen weighs in with what will happen if this goes through: 

"NYCLASS is making it seem like this is good for the horses. It’s not.

It would destroy the business at night, and/or would more or less force drivers to work the streets after 9 PM, as they are allowed to do, but most night drivers prefer to wait on 59th St where everyone knows where they are, and then do a quiet ride in the park. Put the carriages in the dark in the park with no foot traffic, and drivers will obviously go out on the streets then to look for rides after 9 PM (or all day on Sunday).

The proposed locations in the park include 2 spots on steep hills, which means the horses have to work just to keep the carriage from rolling backwards. Drivers would then need to use chocks or the brake constantly, but when the carriage moving up spots continuously, stop and start, one spot at a time, it’s more work.

Another proposed stand at Tavern On the Green is in full sun all day, while all of our current stands on 59th St are in partial shade most of the day year round.

4 of the 5 proposed locations are in spots that do not have an adjacent sidewalk. That means that potential customers must walk in the street, with bicycles and pedicabs and emergency vehicles, and are not protected by a safe curb when approaching the horses, which we all know little kids like to do. This is punishing the carriages, making the horses and their drivers inaccessible to their friends, admirers and potential customers.

(I am always more comfortable with people approaching my horse on the sidewalk than on the street, where there is no obvious safety boundary to a lay person to prevent getting stepped on or inadvertently kicked during fly swatting). The proposal is clearly designed to remove the horses and drivers from easy, safe access/approachability."



The Last Great Dane

Posted by P4PO on September 1, 2018 at 7:20 PM


The other day, Tina Fay contacted me.

She told me that HSUS plans to euthanize yet another Great Dane (HSUS assigned number and name has been redacted). This male Great Dane (#7) had begun acting out in a fearful/aggressive manner as early as September 2017, just 3 months after the raid in Wolfeboro.

~~~


Subject: RE: Follow up on #7 Great Dane

Date: August 30, 2018 9:58:43 AM

The prosecutor emailed me right after I sent you the below email. The prosecutor has been going back and forth with HSUS since yesterday morning.

They would agree to you being present at the facility per the following plan:

· You don’t object to the euthanasia request (which is obvious since we are talking about you being present for #7 Great Dane's final moments);

· The Prosecutor would be present;

· One of the defense team attorneys would be present with you;

· We are not allowed to enter the warehouse building until pre-sedative drugs are administered so that #7 Great Dane will be relaxed when we enter;

· No photos or videos will be allowed.

Essentially, what Prosecutor got the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to agree to is the same procedure that the Prosecutor, the Superior Court Judge, and I were discussing when we met at Court for the last euthanasia request (#6 - Bam Bam,, A1-02).


Sent: Thursday, August 30, 2018 9:48 AM

Subject: Follow up #7 Great Dane

Just wanted to follow up from yesterday morning.

I spoke with the Prosecutor at Court and I think he’d push for you to be present at the facility when #7 Great Dane is euthanized. He agreed with me that the argument the Judge gave the most weight to was your presence at the facility would upset the other dogs. That is no longer an argument the State can present because by the time they could foreseeably be allowed to go forward with euthanasia, #7 Great Dane would be the only dog in the warehouse building.

I know you are weighing it over, but from the photos that were attached to the motion and the fact that Nancy (3rd party) unequivocally said she would not be able to rehome him, I don’t think an objection would get anywhere with the Court.

But, the Court really struggled with the decision not to allow you at the facility last time, and I think we have a better chance of persuading the Court, or getting the State/HSUS to just agree to it, this time around.

~~~

Tina also told me that a representative from a local news outlet contacted her to ask for her response as to what was said at the "Humane Legislator of the Year Award" Ceremony held at the Conway Area Humane Society on August 30, 2018, awarded to Senator Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro), and hosted by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) of New Hampshire.

The local news outlet also asked Tina if she was aware of what was said to the attendees at this gathering by NH State Director Lindsay Hamrick and NH State Senator Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro) because what was spoken was not told in a positive light about Tina Fay.

The first thing that came into my mind when Tina told me all of this was: "Why does HSUS continue to HAMMER Tina Fay? "

Superior Court Judge Amy L. Ignatius gave permanent custody of the remaining 78 Great Danes to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) in mid-June 2018.

Why does HSUS feel compelled to contact Tina regarding this male Great Dane (#7) slated to be euthanized (killed) as soon as the judge throws down the gavel?

Is it because HSUS just feels the need to dig the knife in a bit deeper into Tina's broken heart? Perhaps HSUS "gets off" on tormenting the 'real' victims (Tina Fay and her beloved Great Danes) at every turn.

It's been nearly 15 months since the raid, and HSUS and the press continue to PUMMEL Tina Fay.

The last Great Dane euthanized by HSUS on or about July 3rd, 2018 was A1-02 fondly called Bam Bam by Tina. Bam Bam 'flipped' in early April 2018 when he attacked an HSUS contractor after TEN MONTHS of being locked up in a cage inside a warehouse.

HSUS was quick to have Bam Bam (A1-02) killed - without conducting any health testing to discount a medical issue which might have contributed to his aberrant behavior.

In the case of this male Great Dane (#7), health testing had purportedly been conducted. But of course, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has had no intention of sharing those test results with Tina's defense team.

I guess we are supposed to take HSUS' word on blind faith that the Humane Society of the United States is being honest in its intentions and by its actions. I think NOT.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is not who it 'pretends' to be. HSUS truly is a Wolf in sheep's clothing. HSUS is an extremist organization whose aim is for complete and total animal "liberation" -- no zoos, no pet ownership, no breeding, no eating or wearing of animals.

HSUS' fanatical agenda is the ultimate goal: the END (extinction) of animals through their massive spay/neuter (sterilization) campaigns and ending all breeding of animals (domestic, wild and farm).

Back to this male Great Dane (#7) who is slated to be killed by the Humane Society of the United States.

When the barrage of 80 plus people came barging into Tina's home on the day of the raid, on that fateful day -- Friday, June 16, 2017, at 8:00 o'clock in the morning, the last meal the Great Danes had had was the day before on Thursday, June 15th.

Not only to add insult to injury , but also to intensify the dramatic by making the situation more traumatic for the Great Danes, HSUS kept the Great Danes locked up inside the mansion for hours and hours (from 8:00 am to 11:00 pm'ish), renamed all of the dogs (for what reason I don't know) immediately, hauled all 75 dogs off in trailers, pulled nine (6 day old) puppies from Tina's veterinarian's office, shoved each and every Great Dane into a cage inside a warehouse with no windows (no natural light and no fresh air), and withheld food and water (per HSUS' policy no food/water for travel and new placement) until Saturday, June 17th.

Now think about that for a moment. Would you consider that 'humane' treatment? I think NOT!

On the day of the raid, the Humane Society of the United States not only renamed all of Tina's Great Danes, but they also assigned a number to each of the Great Danes, e.g. A1-02 (called Remus by HSUS) whose real name was Bam Bam.

Now here's another kicker to digest ...

When the police raid an individual, it is standard protocol to inventory and catalog all items removed.

Apparently, and for reasons I do not understand, HSUS and the prosecution NEVER gave Tina's attorneys an Inventory List of Great Danes showing the real name, the HSUS name, the HSUS assigned number and microchip of each dog.

Apparently, Wolfeboro Police, the Carroll County NH Prosecution, and the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) are not required to follow standard protocols. After all, all of them are "above the law" and can do whatever they please with no oversight.


Back to the 7th Great Dane who is slated to be killed by HSUS, Tina does not know the identity of this male Great Dane because the Wolfeboro Police, the prosecution and the Humane Society of the United States have made certain from the start to keep Tina and her attorneys in the DARK in every aspect - with regard to her beloved Great Danes.

Returning back to the gathering at the festive gala at the Conway Humane Society on August 30, 2018 attended by HSUS New Hampshire followers ...

It is clear to me that whatever was said by both Senator Jeb Bradley and New Hampshire State Director Lindsay Hamrick about Tina Fay was spoken with utter contempt and hatred.

Senator Jeb Bradley boarded the HSUS 'gravy' train for the kudos, the accolades and the campaign contributions.

Did I forget to mention that that is how the Humane Society of the United States works? HSUS is really a Washington DC based political lobbyist that takes people's donations to pay executives' fat cat salaries and pay off (political contributions) politicians, like Senator Jeb Bradley of New Hampshire, to introduce new legislation against animal owners.

And as for New Hampshire HSUS State Director Lindsay Hamrick. Lindsay has been clawing her way up the Animal Rights ranks for years now. Just like the non-profit HSUS, which really operates as a for profit corporation, whom she works for ... this is NOT about animal welfare.

For Lindsay Hamrick and for the Humane Society of the United States, this is about MAKING MONEY (through cost of care legislation and retail rescue reselling animals) and TAKING AWAY (through legislation) 'human' rights to own, breed and use animals in animal enterprise businesses.

The Humane Society of the United States operates each and every animal raid and the aftermath with the same modus operandi -- 'manipulate' and 'control' - and seemingly the prosecutors and the judges buy into the lie and give HSUS carte blanche to behave in any way it pleases.


The victims in this tragedy are Tina Fay and her beloved Great Danes.


Why Isn't It Abuse When The H$U$ does it?

Posted by P4PO on June 24, 2018 at 10:30 AM


 



The media has been against Tina from the very beginning, ever since the H$US released pictures and their narrative, the media has fallen for everything they have been told. Most people reading about Tina blindly accepted that the media and H$U$ were telling the truth because in this day and age if it’s on the Google or FaceSpace it’s true! Today we are going to look at how easily the H$U$ deceives people.



It's been awfully hot and humid out the last few days so I've been spending my time inside, under the AC. I’ve been going picture by picture through every picture the Humane Society of the United States took at Tina's house the day of her raid. I have seen them before but it's been a while, so I really wanted to refresh my memory after the final sentencing. The first picture I came across shows how deeply the H$U$ loves dogs.



 

It's interesting to really look at the photos because there's so many details that I noticed as a dog person. Toys everywhere, dogs hanging out, and muddy kennels. It could have been anyone of my breeder friend’s homes on a rainy summer morning. The mud was simply because it was raining the day of the raid and the dogs that were out in it were out voluntarily. They did have places to go inside to get out of the rain if they chose. The inside kennels, some obviously in the middle of being cleaned, some with fresh shavings, were available to the dogs. There were plenty of clean, unopened shavings there as well. Now, I have no intention of lying or writing any half-truths. There are some pictures that really don't look good, which I expected. I mean, it’s really looking like Marilyn Kelly was definitely a plant and Annie Rose Newell, the teen who “worked” for one day was a naive pawn. I don’t blame Annie Newell at all for being easily led by others. From what I am told she is a very nice, shy young woman, and like any other older teen she wanted to be a part of something and was easily manipulated. Tina had very little help for the month leading up to the raid, even though she thought she did. Someone close to Tina messaged the FB page recently and told us they thought that with Tina being in as much pain as she was with her knee, that Tina couldn’t get around well enough to check everything on a daily basis. I have run businesses my entire life and sometimes when I am sick, I must trust that the people who work for me are actually doing their job. Tina had an injury and had to trust that Marilyn was doing her job, which she obviously wasn’t. Why didn’t Marilyn ask for help from people volunteering at Conway Area Humane Society? If she cared about the dogs, she would have sought legitimate help. Of course she wasn’t there to help and really doesn’t care about the dogs at all.


The blame isn’t all on one person though. I know there were people who call themselves Tina’s friends who were in and out of Tina’s house in May, yet did nothing to help, but that’s a blog for a different day.


You know who had enough volunteers and staff to make sure all the dogs were taken care of 100% every day? The H$U$, that’s who, but as you will see in the following photos (The H$U$’s own) that they didn’t bother to hold themselves to the same standard they were trying to hold Tina to. Because when a breeder does something it is abuse, yet when the H$U$ does worse it's because they care. 




Obviously the Humane Society of the United States does not follow that tenet in the slightest. As you will see here there are dogs that looked in much healthier condition before the H$U$ got their hands on them. I picked the easiest pictures to see injuries etc that happened in the “care” of the H$U$ employees even under the watchful eye of 2 vets, Dr. Sarah Proctor and Dr. Monique Kramer.


In this picture you can see clearly that the dogs “Happy Tail” was healing. There’s no open wound and hair is starting to come back.

 



In this picture, after being in the care of the H$U$ for two days the end of the tail is split open, bleeding and the hair is starting to fall out.



 

 


In this picture you can see blood on the wall from the dog’s tail, just like they said happened at Tina’s home. The incredible hypocrisy exhibited here is nothing short of spectacular. It’s a fact that as Tina was taken away she was still trying to get the H$U$ people to listen to here about medicine for the dogs. Did the H$U$ wait to give medicine until after they took pictures in the warehouse? Did they even bother to listen? Note the date is 6/18/17 two days after the raid. 

 





This is a dog who’s pictures really got me. While taking pictures at Tina’s you can see no blood on the dog. Once in the crate, well… See for yourselves.



 

I can’t write about this much more, my blood pressure is beyond sky high but here’s one more comparison. The puppy’s eyes are fine in this picture, probably because either it was totally healthy, or the infection was being treated.


 


Two days later we have runny clearly infected eyes. 



 

 

Then there was this gem of an evidence photo taken on 6/18/17. Yes, it’s a tick. Oh no, not a tick, in New England in the late spring!!! It’s not only a tick, it’s a tick that has NOT been attached for two days feeding on blood. It’s probably something brought in by a volunteer or staff member. Yet H$U$ used it as evidence of neglect. W.T.F?




 


This really, really bothers me. Like beyond all reason. What pictures was the jury shown of these three dogs? How about the media? I am willing to bet they were not allowed to see that these dogs and others deteriorated after being with the H$U$ for just a day or two.
