I can remember watching television with my parents as a child, TV westerns were a favorite of my Father’s. It didn’t matter to me how many cowboys got shot during the course of a movie, but I would burst into tears at the death of any animal. I suppose I should of known then that I would end up working with animals in one capacity or another.
Now here we are almost forty years later and my life revolves around my dogs. I still can’t watch any movie or television show in which a animal is killed without covering my head and bursting into tears. It is not the same reaction I had as a child, as a child I was reacting to the mere thought of an animal being hurt or killed, these days my reaction stems from the fact that I now KNOW how cruel mankind can be to their furry counterparts. I have seen the results of man’s cruelty on a daily basis for the past twenty years. In that time many dogs have come through my home, and all had one thing in common, they were victims of the cruelty of humans.
Is it any wonder that I have become jaded? Does it surprise you that I have all but given up on the human race? It shouldn’t, I know that many of you are feeling the same way.
Imagine my surprise when I discovered that an organization I had once been an integral part of, one that claimed to be helping animals was in fact responsible for the suffering and death of many of those animals in the name of making money. Imagine my disbelief when I discovered that their only driving force was lining their own pockets with thousands of dollars donated by people who thought they were helping these animals to have a second chance at a good life. Wouldn’t you become jaded? Wouldn’t you feel angry? Wouldn’t you want to stop them? Wouldn’t you expose their deception to the world? Of course you would.
Those of you who know me are well aware that I can not stand by while animals are used and abused. You know that I am driven to expose the truth of the matter. It’s just who I am. You also know that I am talking about Let’s Adopt Global, and a crook who calls himself Viktor Larkhill.
Exposing this groups activities has put me directly in their line of sight. They have attempted to hack my email accounts and hijack a chipin I have set up for one of our rescues. Friends who support me in my efforts to stop them have been harassed and their personal information deliberately leaked on facebook. The group will of course deny this, even in the face of irrefutable evidence.
This group is used to silencing those who speak out against them by personally attacking them in public. They flag comments on Facebook as abusive until that person’s access to their Facebook profile is suspended. They will attack your sexuality, your parenting, your professional life, anything they can to silence you and make you go away. This usually works for them, but not THIS time. This time people are fighting back. I know this because I am one of them, and I have much company.
Those of us in legitimate rescue work are not afraid to answer the questions of our followers. We operate with total transparency especially when there is donation money involved. For example, I currently have a chipin running (the one LAG tried to hijack) for our latest rescue, an emaciated Chihuahua named Peanut. Peanut also has a facebook page so that her supporters can keep track of her progress. On that page I have posted any vet invoices (one to date) for her care. Total transparency! The way it should be. People can see where their money is going. Everything is above board, no deception here! If you ask me a question about Peanut’s care I will gladly answer it. If you would rather send your donation directly to Peanut’s vet I will see that you have the information to do so. Why? Because anyone donating to her care deserves proof that their money is being used for what it was intended. I have nothing to hide, I am an open book.
This is not the case with LAG. Innocent questions are met with vehemence and bullying. There is no transparency there whatsoever. LAG collected over $40,000.00 on one dog, and no one knows where the money went, but it is clear it didn’t go into care for the dog, as he did not survive LAG’s attempts to “save” him. His name was Tidus and LAG put him through much suffering before he died.
As usual I do not expect you to take my word for it. There are many people working to bring this group to justice for what they have done. They have collected much information on this group in order to make it available to you so you can draw your own conclusions. I have provided links here below. Check it out for yourself!
