Death Row Dog Rescue - SCAMMING AGAIN

This past week has brought to light the disturbing 

low Diana Peters stooped to so she will get 

donations. She pulls at the kind peoples heart strings, 

and pocketbooks while she deceives them.  

PLEASE, do not stop donating to rescues if you read 

this and were scammed.  Just do your homework and 

research who you are sending your hard earned 

money to!  

Below please view a warning that was 

placed on Facebook about Diana Peters posting of the 

picture and asking for funds. The original photo 

posted in Turkey and copies  of her facebook page 

(screenshots to come)  for death row dog rescue 

where she stated she was feeding these dogs in South 

Florida, and how she needed donations so she can 

feed the dogs in Homestead.

To the people who view that photo please be aware that you should not give Death Row Dog Rescue any money. The photo was taken in Turkey and not Florida. The owner of Death Row Dog Rescue lied and claims she personally fed those dogs in Florida but another person posted under the photo a link to a turkish newspaper. The photo was posted ages ago on the turkish website so Death Row Dog Rescue could not have fed these dogs in Florida. The post by the honest individual was deleted by Death Row Dog Rescue but I took a screenshot and here is the link. http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache%3AluwmLRebgb0J%3Awww.birlesikbasin.com%2Fbu-resim-turkiyeyi-aglatti-10545h.htm+&cd=230&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

Photo: When I lock eyes with an animal, I get a very special feeling. A feeling of total togetherness. Not animal to animal, not human to human, but a being to a being---Please help me to give them more than this bread (and he is the lucky one)--hundreds of these wonderful dogs and puppies are starving to death down in the Homestead fields, Florida--It takes money to feed them even cheap dog food but it will keep them alive until we can capture them and get them the right loving care--I need help to get them food--Please donate even $5.00 and I can buy big bags of food to get down to the starving ones--Thank you for sharing and showing you care--Diana Peters-954-626-0708

Death Row Dog Rescue No When I go to catch these scared abandoned dogs and puppies, I take fresh roasted chicken (nice and greasy) and usually they will go into the cage where the chicken is way in the back--this saves a lot of stress for everyone--Many times I just sit and they can smell the chicken I have in my hand and I gently put a leash on them--I studied under Cesar Millan's training and learned a life-time of knowledge from this man--Thank you all again for making it possible to for me to feed many of them today--My heart was booming on my way back from down south--With help we will keep this life-line of love going for them--Diana

Stephanie Weaver Bennett That seems so strange to me, we have lots of stray cats by my house in PA, but they are pretty self-sufficient with hunting. I can't bear the thought of animals being hungry. Im too far away to help personally so hopefully my $ will help a little.

Death Row Dog Rescue Hello to all of the loving and caring people out there--I wanted to take a minute and clarify the above photo--This is an absolute perfect example of the dogs and puppies that are dumped down soputh Homestead--This dog in the picture I do not have but I am feeding dozens that do not even have this chunk of bread as this guy was lucky to get--I hope I did not give the opinion that this was one of my dogs--I will be getting a camera hopefully soon so I can post the dozens of abandoned dogs and pups that I am on a mission to feed and give them a chance to survive--A couple of nasty people made stupid remarks here and I would like to invite them to come with me on a trip down south and help me to feed the dogs and pups that look exactly like this guy in the photo but even worse--Julie, Barb P-please if you can not help the dogs --do not try to hurt the ones that are--Diana

Death Row Dog Rescue I would like to take a moment to clarify this photo-This is an exact example that is going on now in south Florida--This sweet boy is just one of so many that are in dire need of food--This picture of this one is from somewhere that truly shows the pain and suffering they go thru. I used it to show what is exactly happening to so many down south in Homestead Florida. This is an ongoing urgent situation here in Florida-Horrible people are just dumping dogs and puppies down south and not having any compassion for what is going to happen to them--There are people that step up and actually get in the car and drive down there and feed and catch these abandoned animals--Barb and Julie and Erin Crossposter Elizabeth--If you have any time soon to go with me and drive to south Homestead--I sure could use the "Hands On Help from you." instead of the nasty remarks from you--call me Erin-Julie or Barb-- if you would like to step up for these animals--954-626-0708 here is my #--Diana

Allegedly Mary Tully "Report fraud. If you think you’ve been a victim of fraud, report it. It’s one way to get even with a scam artist who cheated you. By reporting your complaint to 1-877-FTC-HELP or ftc.gov, you are providing important information to help law enforcement officials track down scam artists and stop them!"

If you have donated to this "rescue," you can file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, and I encourage you to do that.

  1. This is a total disgrace. I can't believe this woman stooping so low to beg for donations to pay her bills!!! It is quite evident that this picture was not in South florida, let alone in the United States, but in Turkey. An entirely different Country. This woman needs to be stopped. Please people, educate yourselves. We have a scammer on our hands! Do not donate to this con artist.

    1. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

    2. Diana Peters put a copy/paste on here stating it was a letter from a veterinarian giving her sympathies. She also went on to slander another rescue that happens to have nothing to do with this article, and as the supposed veterinarian letter had nothing to do with Homestead FL dogs, nor the dog in Turkey ( named Vodka after her adoption) - it is no relevance and was removed as spam.

      Diana refrain from your repeated copy pastes and spreading of libel against others with no PROOF being given will not be tolerated, and will be removed. This is not your soap box, you have that on your facebook pages and that of your alias accounts. If you want a copy of the supposed letter posted on this blog, 1) you need to send a true copy of it 2) the vets consent to use on this blog and in what blog date do you want it posted under.
      Thank you.

  2. She is also posting that she needs money for a little dog that she claims to have adopted from Miami's shelter. The exact photo that she posted was found on a Georgia animal shelter's page. A person posted on the georgia shelter's page that the dog was adopted by a person in Georgia.

  3. geeeeez all I want to do now is go to Turkey and get that black mouth cur.....but seriously I appreciate what you guys are trying to do, the internet in all it's glory can be used for good and evil....sometimes as an outsider it can become confusing and hard to discern truth from fiction.....but I have learned a lot about many things today.

    1. Sources have said that beautiful black mouth cur has been adopted out in Turkey, so you can save yourself a trip pink and blue canine rescue.


    1. A long rant by Diana has been removed as she posted it as 'anonymous' but it clearly states it was posted by a Diana Peters in the back office part of the blog. I will post what I could see that shows this to be true.
      Diana Peters giving yourself a recommendation pretending to be someone else - does not fly on this blog. Save your lies and games for someone else. YOU are PITIFUL! (and not the least bit entertaining)

      Do you mean this Diana Peters??? - SCAMMING AGAIN
      Diana Peters
      at 7:13 AM

  5. you understand that when you post stuff as "anonymous" you really just look like you are disgruntled....I am not saying I agree or disagree with anything yet, still just trying to sort out the angry rants, facts, fiction, bs, legal documents, more angry rants etc.....but I will say to anyone that isn't able to stand up full faced and recognized whilst calling someone out on the carpet, I honestly don't put much weight into what they are saying either....still pretty sure I'm headed to Turkey for that BMC though :/

    1. The reason so many post as anonymous, is they do not appreciate being attacked by Ms. Peters. She has harassed and attacked many in her path. I would assume if you asked for someone to contact you and give you information, documentation or whatever you or anyone is wanting about 80% of the posters would.

    2. Diana Peters.....or should I say Brittee Wells...Dawn Monroe...Fran Gibbons...Peggy Swanson...I almost choked when I started to read about the haters having all these fake names. YOU DO AS WELL!!!!! You post as Brittee Wells and then talk about yourself!! You are so busted and such a piece of trash. You have posted NO DOCUMENTED TRUTH!!! All you do is copy and paste. I want to see scanned copies of EVERYTHING. If you do, I will make a donation (and a sizeable one) once you do so. Please send it to sbp919@aol.com. PUT UP OR SHUT UP.

    3. I would not hold your breath waiting on Diana for anything. She produces nothing but lip service.

  6. You should allow everyone the freedom to comment, and not censor or delete comments unless of course they are threatening in nature. I just find it amusing that 4 hours ago comments posted without approval, and now that has changed....I am nobody, a small start up, legit rescue in Texas, about 2 months from having my 501c3 completed....just finding my way, networking, etc...when I stumbled across your blog.....and I have spent the last 5 hours of my day researching her, and any factual things I can find....it is very interesting the number of supporters she has, and I do hope the prosecutors in your state are watching her....I also though find it a bit curious that a legit animal rescuer (regarding the dog Debbie) would spend $7000.00 on one dog that will be sick for it's entire life, that too is quite questionable in my mind, and she sounds just as mental as Diana does.....while extremely sad, and probably wholly unnecessary, that poor dog should have been put down....the sheer numbers of healthy animals she could have saved with $7000.00 is almost mind numbing....I wish everyone the best of luck and always hope that the good we are all trying to do heavily outweighs the negative of a few. Peace to all :)

    1. I have to say that was my call to do so this morning. We have given everyone the freedom to comment openly, and as of last evening after receiving 15 posts from Ms. Peters full of the repetitive lies, attacks, cursing the page went to moderation . Diana Peters has the freedom to post her lies anywhere she wishes. If she sends in a comment attacking someone in particular, cursing, stating a false fact that is a known lie we can discount with fact documents on the page, continues to spam the same thing over and over then it will be moderated. This is not a place her antics will be tolerated. When we take it off moderation if she can't post anything civil, and stop spamming then please tell me what you think should be done, rather than moderate? (as I agree, comments whether we like the opinion or not should be available ) We chose moderation over banning her, as we felt if she ever wanted to post something that contradicts something reported we will take it. We encourage her to post her proof documents.
      We feel you have a valid point,and it will be back off of moderation this evening, and we will take things from there.

      As far as your comments about Wendy, that is opinion that many people would disagree with, and be shocked that you only think healthy animals are worth saving. Debbie has a high quality life full of love and happiness with Wendy. Should Wendy have left her in Diana's yard to die a slow painful death? - I think before you make a comment like the one above you should check out her rescue, it's high standards, and the type of person she is. Some would think you may be a bit mental like Diana for stating what you did.

      and Thank you Pink and Blue for taking the time to read the blog, share your opinions, and research.

    2. get teh bikers against animal cruelty to visit her! anon x-sect a challenge? could be fun sport tracing her money and calling her local attorney general or us attorney general? wire fruad, charity fraud, money laundering, racketeering, and also people who do this kinda thing might be gypsies involved in other criminal activities.

  7. I never said ONLY healthy animals, and I do apologize for the mental comment, that was unnecessary, I'm sure she is a wonderful person and a huge asset to the rescue world. Personally we would never choose to spend thousands on one animal so that it can lead a mediocre life, when those resources could have benefited hundreds of adoptable dogs. we do tend to rescue with a triage thought process, which for some is a little to old school country or militant.

    Obviously nobody in their right mind would have left that poor animal in the crazy ladies yard to die a horrible painful death, I just would have handled it differently in the end.

    I will say, that I asked Diana, as a comment on a status update on her fb page, if she could provide a link to see that records that she stated could be viewed online, and within an hour she had deleted my comment and banned me. To anyone reading this, that should speak volumes as to her transparency (which all non profits are required to have) and to her true intentions.

    Our rescue focuses on pregnant/nursing mamas, and abandoned litters, that get put down for lack of space/time/money that shelters face daily. Spaying and neutering is the big picture and the key to putting dents in the high number of shelter deaths, and I hope that my husband and I are able to do our part diligently and thoughtfully for many years to come.

    I thank you again, for stepping up and standing up for what is right, and bringing to light your experiences with her, and I do hope the authorities in your area follow through with prosecuting her. Thank you for taking time to read and respond to my comments, it's our differences that tend to bring us together and I do hope that we all continue to do what each is capable of doing. To educate the public on the importance of spay/neuter, and to continue to find ways to help provide the resources to help people with that should always be on the forefront of every rescues agenda. Peace to all :)

  8. Well said Karen, thank you for your comments! What you are doing is a great thing!

  9. Do you know if she uses an alias ......I can't remember where I was on facebook but they were talking about Death row dog rescue belonging to a horrible woman named Gail something.....so just wondering....

    1. Once again Diana...Fran...Peggy...Brittee....YOU ARE CREATING FAKE NAMES!!!!

  10. Linda Gall is an actual person so she states, that admits to having worked with Diana Peters in the past. I have seen posts by someone online stating they are the same person. I do not believe so as I have talked to Linda Gall before and she was very forthcoming in what transpired with Diana Peters. There are warnings posted online and craigslist about her too.

    Diana Peters goes by many names Diana , Diane, Dianalynn, Dianna Lynn, Peters, Peterson as well as some other names I can't think of at the moment. Best thing to do, is research. If you read something online that sends up a red flag, and the accused is denying things, then dig further, - vets, rescues, public records, court records, shelters and ask other local rescues.
    I have yet to meet one locally that would vouch for her.
    Educate before you donate!

  11. You know it's hard to know what is and what is not true...I just saw a post from her yesterday I think it was on facebook...always seems sincere and seems to have many followers....why hasn't she been arrested if she is scamming people out of money with phoney pictures of animals that she claims she is rescuing...that is a cime
    isn't it or everyone would be doing it....how can one determine what is right and what is not...I have seen that post of that dog eating that piece of bread several times but can't remember who posted it but I'm sure it wasn't her it was someone else....and I remember thinking why do people keep posting this poor little dog with this bread in the street.....if she is a scam she should be shut down and put in jail...and I'm wondering why that has not been done .......

  12. diana peters is a mental case she truly believes her own lies and thinks she is the person who she makes up. so many personalities thats truly mental. diana how many dogs have you saved??? ITS NOT OVER 2000 ITS MORE LIKE MAYBE 20 there are no pictures of dogs on your trash page death row dog rescue, none show you with any dog you have saved, none of you in homestead feeding dogs, NOTHING BUT CROSSPOSTING FOR OTHER DOGS AND ASKING FOR MONEY.. diana you are just a crossposter for money. you dont have a rescue you have a shack... YOU NEED TO BE LOCKED UP IN A PADDED CELL!!!!

  13. I've really tried to do some research on this. I've only "scanned" any of the comments by "annonymous". I'll tell you the same thing I always say. . . if you have nothing to hide. . . you don't have to be anonymous. It makes you look incredibly weak and takes away ALL of your credibility. If you can't stand behind what you are saying, Anonymous. . . .then. . . you really should keep your fingers off the keyboard. I'm guessing that if somebody actually met you. . . I'm guessing they would find a 14 or 15 year old kid. Anonymous is the child way to snipe at people. I wouldn't expect you to understand that right now at your tender age. . . . but. . . when you reach maturity. . . you will understand and see how silly it is. When you make it anonymous. . . you are saying that even YOU don't want to be associated with what YOU say. . . ergo. . . nobody else will either. p.s. . . .Ergo means "therefore". . .it's Latin. . . but I wouldn't expect you to know that either.
