You could only wish you had stalkers. That would mean that someone had an interest in YOU. The only interest this large group (growing every day) has is shutting down a con-artist who collects money from the public, spends it on herself and her friends for nice dinners and drinks, some good lunches, buys fun things on EBAY and Big Lots and allows animals to die of neglect on the floors. All in the name of a NO KILL shelter. You can convince the slow, drug addicts and homeless group that follow you that you are doing a good job. Anyone with half a brain has left your group and told anyone that will listen what is going on there.
Perhaps we could ask how many cats DIE in your shelter each month, due to neglect and lack of veterinary care? How many per year? In the short time I was there, the records showed 210 in less than a year. The descriptions read, "found dead in cage," found dead on floor". If these animals were sick, why were they not getting help from a veterinarian? Instead, there was a lazy-ass, drugged up, broken down, ex-vet tech who was always just too tired to give the cats medicine. That is - if you even had medicine from a veterinarian. Not the compounding voodoo you did with other people's medication.
I have read some of your claims of complete innocence at the raid, but if you did nothing wrong, why did you have to pay a very high profile criminal attorney thousands of dollars to get you off? There are six of us that were there at that time and KNOW you conned a disabled volunteer out of that money.

In the name of the many good groups that care for animals, PLEASE GO AWAY!! Find yourself another scam to make money and leave the animals alone. They are better off on the streets than in your care.

Beware of Fraud in Non-Profit Organizations
There are some very important facts to know about non-profit organizations before donating to them or making the commitment to sit on the Board of Directors for one. Although there are many amazing chartities that do great work, an estimated $40-50 billion per year is lost to fraud in non-profits and scandal is found in nearly 20% of philanthropic organizations, according to the New York Times. Charities need to tighten controls against theft, especially in a tough economy. It is wise to be skeptical and first do your due diligence before involving yourself or your financial support.
•Nonprofit organizations and faith-based houses of worship make the headlines almost weekly about theft of funds, embezzlement, corruption, fraud, health/safety violations and misconduct.
••Many non-profit groups use grant funding for inappropriate activities.
•Losses caused by founders/managers are four times those caused by employees.
•The embezzler is typically always the person the organization would least expect to be a thief. The most typical theft in charities is committed by a female employee with no criminal record who earns less than $50,000 a year and has worked for the charity for at least three years.
•Non-profits should be suspicious of people in positions of authority and trust who are operating on the edge of financial ruin and those who refuse to share duties. They may behave in a desperate manner and steal donations.
•Fraud is usually committed by someone in the financial area -- the founder, the treasurer, the bookkeeper, the signer of checks -- who knows how to avoid getting caught. Many times they will create fraudulent financial documents and evade sharing bank statements with the other board members.
Different people should be assigned separate functions of managing the finances -- writing checks, signing checks, reconciling bank accounts and checking the cancelled checks that are returned from the bank. •No founder may be treated as if he/she 'owns' the organization.
All board members will be held accountable for the governance of the organization.
•An internal audit should be performed at least annually.
•A board of directors has the fiduciary responsibility for ensuring that the funds are properly spent and to make sure that set standards are adhered to.
•Each board member is responsible for reviewing the organization's budget and staying informed of the financial situation. They must insist on good reporting -- financial reports should be kept up to date and distributed at each board meeting for review (at least quarterly).
•If a founder or other paid staff member serves on the board, he/she should not be elected President because it tends ot keep all responsibility for vision and leadership in a single person's hand.
•Non-profit organizations are expected to spend cautiously and honor the trust placed in them by their donors.
