November 10, 2012 - DRDR and The Humane Society

     November 10, 2012

Yesterday Diana Peters of  Death Row Dog Rescue again was asking for a donation, even just $5, (again)  because it just takes so much money .   She forgets to tell people just how her donations that are collected are spent ....

Here is the TRUTH where she spends funds collected, to support herself. 
(see the last sentence) 

 Which she  has admitted to on many occasions.   You may assume then she takes a paycheck, but according to her application  sent to the Florida Dept. of Agriculture no one takes a paycheck. Ethical, legally operating non-profits just DO NOT take the funds and spend with no accounting for them.   The fact Diana Peters lives off of donations - the business is not paying anyone payroll is FRAUDULENT!   If only the kind caring donors knew where their donations go to.  (and to boot she doesn't pay taxes like the rest of us on her income)

Here is a screenshot from the DRDR facebook page taken this morning.  Please read through the comments made about The Humane Society.  Great suggestion made,

I am not understanding  why Diana would say the Humane Society sends dogs to BCAC  (Broward County Animal Care) ?  From their website :
 Is the Humane Society of Broward County a "no-kill" shelter?
The Humane Society of Broward County is an open admission shelter. This means we accept all owned animals regardless of their condition. Animals must be friendly and healthy to go up for adoption. Those not meeting this criteria are euthanized. Many "no-kill" shelters will only take in pets they know they can find homes for or turn people away when they are full. So where is the pet to go then?

Do I have to make an appointment to drop off my pet?
No, the shelter is open seven days a week and the receiving department opens at 8:00 AM everyday. 

Is there a time limit for animals?
Once an animal is evaluated and goes up for adoption, there is not a time limit, as long as the pet stays friendly and healthy.
No where does the Humane Society say they send animals to BCAC ,and no where does it say they are selective and refuse animals.
Frankly, what Diana Peters is doing is, spreading libel against them.
Now Diana has her followers believing that the workers LIE. They do not lie.  When they take in an animal that may NOT be adoptable and may face euthanasia THEY are very clear. People sign paperwork, it is not a dirty dark secret!
My pet is old and I can't afford to take it to the vet to have it put to sleep (euthanized). Can I bring my pet to the shelter?
Yes, the Humane Society of Broward County does this as free service, we do however ask for a donation. If you would like the pet's remains returned, there is a set fee for the cremation process and this is based on the size of the pet. We are open seven days a week for your convenience and receiving opens at 8:00 AM everyday. Please go to the west side of the building to the receiving department and the associate there will be able to assist you

The Humane Society of Broward County is a  501c3 non profit animal shelter.  They are not supported by government funds.  They take in unwanted animals .   Isn't this what Diana claims to do on a much smaller scale?

I urge people who think Diana Peters is just avoiding The Humane Society as someone to take in animals from to contact them directly.  I have been told that they know all about Diana Peters.

Back in September Diana posted one of their dogs Jezebel on her DRDR facebook page and asked for donations so she could SAVE Jezebel.

(see the screenshots below, and carefully READ Diana's comments)

Apparently Diana doesn't even KNOW where the dogs was because she tells people to call Broward County.  The Broward Humane Society is NOT a government agency.  She wrote the dog is at the Broward Pound.   UNTRUE, Jezebel was not at BCAC - the pound.

Diana then says she has room for her but no money to get her out.  Can someone sponsor to pay to get her out. 
She then goes on to LIE and say how much the pull fee is.

The truth is  Diana can't pull a dog from the Humane Society !
their policy is NO rescue can pull dogs from them - they are a shelter. their dogs are adopted by individuals not permitted by groups.
She is being quite deceitful to get donations.  
This is called, Charity Fraud. 

After receiving donations, and there were many more posts where she said  she was getting the dog,  but unfortunately either I have misfiled the screenshots, or  I  did not have a chance to get them. ( If I find them I will show that proof,  but for now that part is just hearsay)

She goes on to state the pull fee amount - when it is IMPOSSIBLE to pull a dog from  this private shelter.  They only adopt.   She then goes on to state Jezebel was adopted.
Yet- another LIE.
look below at the last comment!

Jezebel was still there as she wasn't even yet available to be adopted until September 26th.


Deceit and LIES -  sad stories and asking for help to save a dog, which she couldn't save. Nothing new with this scammer.  

But that hurts rescue animals that need to be saved, it hurts donors who believe her lies, and it hurts the rescues who are saving dogs, and shelters she spreads libel about.  

People deserve The Truth!

Diana did not have to tell lies when someone simply asked her why doesn't she partner with no kill shelters.
Diana can't pull a dog from The Humane Society, BCAC, MDAS, and many, many more shelters throughout Florida and beyond.

Here is a great guide that was shared with me, that will help donors discern a good rescue, from a bad.  It is vital in our fight to save LIVES that money goes to those that are saving them.

Diana Peters - YOU NEED TO STOP LYING and CHEATING to support yourself.
I am TIRED of seeing dog after dog, rescue and shelter after the other being used by you to fatten your wallet and pay for your trips to firewalking events in Texas, Tony Robbins events in Orlando, your food, rent, cigarettes and wine.  If you want people to support YOU then simply ask for money for it.  Do NOT use dogs!!!
